So far all the changes sound great. One thing I would like added is the date the thread was started on the portal page. Whether this comes up when you get the preview or is posted along with the user name doesn't matter. There have been times when a thread gets bumped and the question is years old and people are responding like it just happened. Not a real biggie but would be nice.

Okay, I went from the Power User Page that was given to me and clicked the logo at the top and was not taken to the main forum. I was taken to a different landing page and had to click a link to get to the forums. That's a full extra step.

Here's the links as I followed them: http://discusscooking.com/?page=power
Clicked on the top logo and arrived here: http://discusscooking.com/index.php
Had to click on Click here to go to the forum listing page to get to the listing page so it is taking more steps, not less. Just thought I'd point that out.

Callisto - I guess it is an extra step from your perspective. My suggestion would be to not use the Power User's Page like I do. Go back to the way you were doing it. It is one less step if you enter through the Index Page. I use the Power User's Page for different things. I like the info I get on that page from MY perspective.

No, that's not the solution. The way I was doing it is now totally corrupted. The power user page is how the landing page USED to look now it (the landing page) looks like carp. I was trying to give Andy info on what his changes have done. I thought that was the point of this thread.

From the Power User's page, you can get to the forum listings page by clicking on the "Forums" link in the upper left instead of the logo.

Andy, I didn't see the skin last night but I do love the sidebar! Thanks for all your work!

Andy,

In regards to the new site not looking right in IE 7. Not sure if you heard but MS is now saying that IE 8 will adhere to the W3C HTML/browser standards more closely than previous version did. They are also saying the sites that were developed to take use / take advantage of IE specific things may not wokr properly in IE 8.

Just wanted to pass that along.

Mine looks the same too, definitely no drop downs and no cute little logo. I'm using Firefox 3.0.6

Russ, Thanks for the tip about the forum listing from the power user page. That is what I needed.
