    Minor point - the Forum Tools and Thread Tools drop down menus are hard to read (dark grey lettering on a black background)

    Really minor point, but would it be possible to reduce the white space between the end of a post and our signature lines?

    In addition to still defaulting to Search Multiple Content Types, there are two issues on the Advanced Search page.

    One is major, the way the page renders in Search Single Content Type prevents access to some options (# of posts, date range). The other is the same minor one noted in my earlier post, some text is rendered in dark gey on a black background making it difficult to read.

    Also noted that, when trying to upload a photo, only the "basic uploader" function works and that the Preview Post window also renders dark grey text on a black background..

    I was going to post that the advanced search looks funny, but Deacon already did that.

    Not sure if what Paul said covers this but here is what I get when I do an advanced search. Notice the warnings at the top and the check boxes that are between rows etc. Thanks much!

    Since the upgrade my color scheme is black & gray & white...some of the subheadings are dark gray lettering in a black background...really hard to read. Basically, the same issue Paul & others have noticed. Is there a way I can change color scheme?

    Hi, Kristi! On most of the threads, when I click on the link to go to the thread, I get a page of HTML. This only occurs on my iPad Mini in Chrome, not in Safari, and not on my iPhone at all. Weird, huh? I updated to the latest iteration of Chrome, no change. No big thing, I'll just use Safari for awhile!

    Just wanted to add that I am still seeing the weird errors and overlapping text when I go to the Advanced Search page in Google Chrome. Anyone else seeing this?

    Yes David, the layout weirdness/overlaps are still there in the most current versions of IE, Chrome, and Firefox on my Win 7 and Win Vista PCs. Still seeing the error messages that you caught as well. I originally missed those, the dark grey text on black is hard for me to see, especially when it's not something I'm expecting and trying to find. Member list is still empty as well, although I don't recall that working in the last vBulletin version either.
