    Well, you probably noticed it already - we upgraded to IPB4.0!

    This was a huge upgrade, the forum software basically has been rewritten from scratch!
    Let's hope we won't find too many bugs...

    You can still choose between the Pandora Blue and Pyra Red theme on the bottom, I will restore all features and more within the next few days.

    Let me know if you encounter any bugs! (and yes, I know I still need to restore the menus, etc.)

    Thanks ED~ Loving it so far, looks awesome. A cleaner look.

    Nice to see who's birthday it is too. Happy Birthday to quasist old pal :)

    What's up with spacing?...and can we have a formatting on/off option, because there are hardly any options to chose from anyway? No insert image, no font or colour?

    EDIT: disregard my request and questions lol

    +1, bump! :D  

    Looks good to me so far, good job.

    It was quite a surprise.

    Yes, I remember how it was when we switched from IPB3 to IPB4 :)
    However, IPB4 offers a lot more, so I can include the Pyra website easily into the system, etc.

    Right now, it might be a bit slow as it is rebuilding ALL the posts... and that takes a while (as the site is huge), but we're getting there :)

    So far I have to say I like the old version better.  :(    Hopefully that will change as bits and pieces get restored.

    I'm also hoping the old colours of the Pandora theme can be restored.   It looks really washed out at the moment.

    like the new style, looks sexy!

    i'm noticing right now, however, that "Location" isn't working right in my browser.    For example, just under my avatar it reads:

    • Joined: 24 Mar 2014
    • LocationPreviously in the Netherlands
    instead of "Location: Previously in the Netherlands."

    Well, just let us know what you're missing :)

    Did you switch to the blue theme? Those colors should almost be identical.

    Edit:

    I tried to show an example of how Tapatalk is messing up the formatting... but it's only visible in Tapatalk.

    So here's a screenshot instead:

    Tapatalk looks fine here, but I was just updating it about 1 minute ago, maybe you connected while it was updating :)

    one other minor point -- the latency seems to be twice or more than the original, but maybe that is my internet connection...

    @ible

    It definitely seems slower and heavier for me.

    I'm on the mobile-ish sitesite now, btw.

    A text only mode for the editor might be nice,  I can't seem to find a way to split quotes.

    I can't find anywhere to view liked posts.  (used to be linked off the profile page.)

    There's only two themes  Pyra and Pandora.   The colours on the Pandora theme are nothing like what they were in the same theme under the old version,  the best you can say is for it is that it's still done in shades of blue.

    Markup mode for the editor would indeed be nice.

    Also, did everything just get marked as read?

    @ED

    would it be possible to merge the two trading sections: "Pandora > Getting a Pandora > Trading" and "Offtopic > Trading" ? I find it a tad akward if I have to point people to two sections when they ask for place to buy a Pandora.

    "Offtopic > Trading" is for everything else but pandora...

    EDIT: does this mean we'll have more "likes" now ? :p

    EDIT2: bug : I lost all my unread list... I guess it was to be expected

    I know what the original intention was, but I still not see the need for two sections that do basically the same. The activity in both is really low so no need to have two seperate sections to give users more oversight - and if you still would want that you can always create subsections

    Quotes in existing threads look like normal text?
