There are some quirky issues with the layout when viewing in safari on my iPhone. Tried posting pics of it, but it won't let me.   Main issue seems to be that it is stacking images on top of each other.

I like the new layout, great job!

I am missing the "go down" / "go up" button that allowed to move to the bottom / top of longer threads with just one click instead of scrolling.

I have an old iPhone I can check to see what you're talking about.

Thanks, Andreas.  I can add the functionality back.  No problem.

I like the new layout. Very clean, looks great on Google Chrome. Have noticed the site is not allowing me to save my login credentials. I have to login each time I access the site. Am I just missing the location of the 'save my login credentials' that was on the old site?

I understand the dilemma.  The problem is when you login with the button in the top left, there is no option to check off whether you want to stay logged in or not.  I'm going to see about adding that option to the login button.  You can still do that from the login page, but not the quick login in at the top left.

OK, so I've added a "Want to Stay Logged In?" check box.  When you check this box, the website should remember you now.  Otherwise it will default to staying logged in for only an hour, good when using a public or friend's computer.

It is much quicker than the old software.  Thanks for all your hard work!

Awesome, thanks!
I had to completely rebuild from the ground up and then put the old information into the new.  Then, try and figure out the best design for both desktops and mobile.  I HAD to go mobile friendly if I want Google to index the site properly.  And this thing has been patched together so many times it was starting to look like Frankenstein.

So, it's good to hear you notice.

My first goof. Typed in a reply without realizing it was the Facebook comment box. Since I don't have my FB account connected, off it went into the ether.

Thanks, I see the addition and it works great!

The avatars seem larger than I remember. Are we allowed a higher resolution pic now?
