So far's accomodations, I take it the plan for the forum default still is to eventually make it look and work as much like it did just prior to fate moving its huge hand?
Work like it - maybe not. Look more like it, yes, I am planning to put some more work into the look. I don't know when it will be done but as time goes on I will continue to tweak it.

I have to ask. Why is Dude still using IE6? If he has an old computer maybe Chrome would be a better browser for him? I know people with older machines have had success with Chrome. It seems to use less resources.

Well Sean I value my privacy 100000% .... (I dont trust any other browser really and with all I have learned I can do with customisation,etc on different sites I am on,I dont think I could do it with any other browser (Not as Much as I can with IE6/MyIE2 (Which I didnt realise until last year)))

If I block CSS I can then see the buttons... Me and Fan dont understand why THE DEMO SITE works fine but the same skin here does not!! (Subsilver/Subsilver2 was made for older browsers or for people who want a fast loading of the site (Its an basic skin))

http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/index.php?style=10

They must have a slightly different CSS file,I dont know .... I tried using thier CSS file here but it didnt work...

Its a total mystery........ I guess for now I can simply block CSS to see the reply button and then unblock it all other times...... The site looks VERY STRANGE with CSS blocked but @ least I can see the buttons,etc...... Im grateful Fan installed Subsilver2,its beautiful.... (On any PHPBB site I goto I always SUBSILVER/SUBSILVER2,I love it :))

Fan has always been a very good friend to me and I know he is trying :)


I have always loved PHPBB!! -- Im glad he went to this and not VB4!!! (Or even worse VB5)
