Scott, I'm viewing on my iPad right now and that right column really compresses things in a not nice way. "Removable" is the way to go as it lets folks who don't want it to utilize their screen space efficiently and folks who find it useful to, well...use it.

Re: Forum updates Thursday 5/9!

I don't like the recent sidebar posts but I don't mind it. I haven't had any issues with the tabs at the top either. I'm glad you guys kept the Crimson theme... much easier on the eyes.

Well there's your problem right there... I'm sure a vast majority of our users view the forums on a desktop/laptop computer. These forums aren't intended to be viewed on mobile devices. That's what Tapatalk is for: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tapa...307880732?mt=8

I'm not a forum site newbie, being a Senior Moderator at two very large forums for almost a decade and built with the same vBulletin software as JeepGarage, so I do understand that the majority might be using "traditional" computer displays. I know it's a struggle for forum administrators to enhance functionality while still offering flexibility...I've lived that for a long time.

My iPad comment was just mentioning that for those of use who prefer to use the non-mobile version of sites in a regular browser on devices like iPad, the change has the same impact as on a personal computer. I tried Tapatalk and deleted it. It wasn't for me. I have exactly the same visual issue on my 27" iMac in my chosen browser window size--which my screen shots above were captured from. The sidebar is distracting and seriously compresses the actual forum thread listing to where it makes it harder to read. Rather than a side-bar, this content could be a collapsable section above the forum thread listings...or just be removable as an option in the UserCP Options for those of us who really don't care about Recent activity, random photos, etc. Scott mentioned there was the possibility that could be added where a user could chose to abandon the side bar and I absolutely support that idea.

Re: Forum updates Thursday 5/9!

I'm so impressed with what this forum has become. My hat sincerely goes off to Scott and everyone else that has been working their tail off to make this forum what it is. From the past, present and on to the future jg for life.

Re: Forum updates Thursday 5/9!

New homepage (Jeep Garage - Jeep Owners Forum and News | Just another WordPress site, not Jeep Garage - Jeep Forum) is cool but I gotta have a new posts button, dont want to have to click a subforum, then click new posts. The improvements are good so far but I gotta have that new posts button. lol

Re: Forum updates Thursday 5/9!

Is there a way to sign in when I first come onto the site? It's not a big deal but I have to go to a page and sign in that way.

Have you tried the top right sign in box once you get to the first page of the forums?
