    The main part of the garden pond forum upgrade is now complete, all of the software has been updated to the latest version :)

    There are still a few tweaks to be made (such as the button colours from blue to green), but most of the work is done. Some users may find they need to re-create their avatar, as some of the default forum ones have been updated. This can be done in the User Control panel.

    Later in the week there will be some more news about 2 new site moderators :D. I just need to get some behind the scenes work done and then this will be in place.

    Hope you all like the changes :)

    Hi Ian,

    Is the top page banner supposed to say "Salterwater Aquarium Information and Forums" ? Don't think so

    I already miss the "Today's Post" button. Other than that, the site looks much cleaner. Thanks for all the hard work.

    is therer a way you could set up a 'forum' for instructional threads like filter building and such that cant be responded to? i will be building a new filter setup for my basement pond, "skippy" style ; on my last one there is 5 pages of jibberish about where to get the filter pads. i thought i might do one for this filter with better detailed instructions and pics..easy to follow. and it would be nice for future interested parties to not have to sort thru the mayhem. the original poster the only one who could still post on it in case he was to think of other details, or improvements etc..

    Do you mean like an articles section, where there can be step by step instructions on how to perform common things? Or more like a project forum, where a user can create a project log of their pond (or performing a task)? :)

    I'll be happy to set one up if :D

    Looks good Ian...
    It is a lot faster, and set up better. Great job
    I wish you could bring the color up on the screen to make the letters stand out
