Phew! It let me in again! My 'cybersecurity software', Bitdefender (freebie version) had decided that this forum was infected with Malware, and wouldn't let me log in till today. It's now given in to my pleas to whitelist the site.

So, yes, new design - looks good, clean and pleasant - I like it!

Me to it's nice, but I miss that the startpage was the active topics. Sometimes I am looking on my phone and the quick links tab is so small on my screen!

Other than that I like it

I was going to suggest a bigger phone too, but Glenn beat me to it :lol:

Once everything has settled down I will have a look and see if I can implement something to show the latest posts at the top of the page.
Hohner Vox 4P, Hohner Tango II, Galotta Continent. I just wish I could play them!

I couldn't get onto the forum yesterday or the day before but I was using my saved link to Active topics. I googled it this morning and Hey Presto, in I came !

Since the forum upgrade I note that I have to regularly log on with user name and password. Is this common to other forum users? Maybe by me using various access methods (PC, tablet, phone) causes this issue. Not the end of the world entering your credentials each time but just curious.

I only need to enter the credentials on my phone (Samsung Note 4), but on my IOS devices (iPad) and PC, it keeps the cookies and no logins needed each time.

No biggie.

Going through "Quick links" to "Active topics" then saving that as the forum bookmark gives a more useful starting page, similar to the default on the old system.

I'm having the "issue" with my iPad. I don't save the password. I assume this is not what you mean by saving cookies. I have never saved password before on any system so I won't start now. As you say, no big deal just another thing to do to access the forum.
