    So.. I am looking for some validation here to see if I am getting a little closer to having a satisfactory layout.

    By the way..

    I am pretty sure that I can get the active topics at the left in the forums area to scroll just like the one we are accustomed to so that is coming.

    There are still some broken images/links and I am working feverishly on that as well.

    Anything else wrong?

    Give me some feedback.. it is important.
  2. Looks good so far Jeff.

    Best since the "migration" IMHO[​IMG]

    Especially like the option for having/not having side bars!....Something for everyone[​IMG]

    Discovered how to delete a post this morning....that was bugging ME. Who reads the "reason for deleting" if it is filled out?

    Also like that when you arive at front page and pick a post to read you automatically go to the forums side.

    This is much better than the middle attempt IMHO. Also, for those that were wanting it to be like the "original" SMF I think you acheived that now as well, especially if you get the active topics thing scrolling.

    Good job, and better you than me. [​IMG]

    Looks like you really nailed it and the [​IMG] are behind you!

    No moans, groans, or hey help me's[​IMG]

    Why not take a well earned rest and go smoke something[​IMG]

    Many thanks for the great big effort Jeff!

    Jeff I think the site is coming along great. You're working hard and we appreciate it. Everyone is learning their way around and finding new toys here and there. So it's all good.

    Sit back, grab a chilled beverage, eat a smoked meat sammie, and smile awhile.[​IMG]

    Keep Smokin
  14. Looks great. I was not around for the old forum, but this layout is what I am used to from some others I am on...

    One thing I am having trouble with though is when I go to smokingmeatforum.com, I am taken to the site with the active threads. There is not a way to go to the main forum board. I have found a way to get there... I have to click on a thread in the active forums and then go to the top where the "forum tree" is and then I can go to the main forum board and select a catagory.

    Sorry if this is a little confusing... It is past my bedtime[​IMG]

    To easily get to the main forums area just click on the "forums" link at the top left on the nav bar.. just below the SMF Logo.

    You could also save a link in your favorites to http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/forums

    You could also make it your home page...
