Your forum software seems to be updated too (new font).

How can I see the new messages since my last visit? (Color? Direct-Link?)

Additional question:
What is the difference between an new post and a unread post? (The first one doesn't appears in second category, why should a "new post" not be "unread"?).

It depends on the skin that you used what you saw before. I found it much easier too.

Sub-Forums display old/new image and topics have a red folder icon indicating they're new.

Anyone seen an option to reduce the font? It's way too much scrolling now.

Personally I like new Look. I also agree that Font could be Smaller, but CTRL+MOUSE SCROLL Solves that also (FireFox Zoom 80%).

Don't know if it's a consequence of server update, but the Addons page is behaving strangely.
The link tree, at the left side, is not expanding/collapsing correctly, making it impossible to navigate the addon categories.

I noticed that when the mouse cursor is placed over one link, the URL shown in status bar is incorrect. There's kind of a JavaScript error message (I guess) INSIDE the URL.

Here is a screenshot showing this behavior:

It's too hard to work out what's new and what's old with this new board style. 8)
And the pro silver is crap.

I might try using binoculars. :lol:

It's Annoying to Have to Go to the Home Page First

Post by yarguy » Tue May 22, 2018 6:54 am

Since the new version of the MM web site has appeared I find it annoying to have to go to the site's home page before going to the section I want. Formerly, if I clicked on Help -> On-line Forum I was connected directly to the forum; now I have to make a brief stop at the home page. Why?

And it seems to have made it almost impossible to find add-ons. If I click Tools -> Extensions -> Get More Extensions I am taken to the main Add-ons page. But now if I click on a category, say Management, there it is - the MM home page. Even worse, though, if I click on Add-ons here, while I do go to the Add-ons page. then the vicious circle rears it ugly head. Clicking any category gets me to - yes, the MM home page.

Am I doing something wrong, or do the people at Ventis just hate users?

I've finally given up on the new MediaMonkey theme and changed to the standard Pro Silver theme.
I can identify new posts at a glance now by color instead of having to look for New/Old. :)

You are right, much better. Thank you for this hint!

User Control Panel -> 3rd tab "Board preferences" -> Edit global settings ->
Right side panel: "My board style" change from "MediaMonkey" to "prosilver"

And it's a more compact design providing more information on screen resulting in less scrolling.
