I just have one minor piece of constructive feedback. When I press on "calendar" at the top right hand corner of the page, it says the following on my computer:
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/nycmetro/public_html/forums/admin/sources/base/core.php on line 2698

Maybe it's something with my computer or maybe it's a glitch with the new system.

Thanks for all the hard work!!!

Good catch. I don't think the calendar app was installed completely. I'll try to work on that. In the mean time, I've disabled it.

Not that I'm aware of. I don't have trouble doing so on my end. Can you be more specific?

I think the issue is not just the background color, but the text color as well -- it's too pale. You need more contrast between the two to make it easier to read.

Two more suggestions -- bring back the auto spell-check feature when posting. Also, if you've forgotten to log in, the system still allows you to write a post, then advises you to log in when you click the "post" button. After doing so, the original narrative is lost. The system should immediately stop you from posting if you haven't logged in, which is the way it was before the changes.

I've adjusted most of the main fonts around the site (post font size, topic title font size in topic listings) to be slightly larger. They're now all about the same, if not larger, than what we had before we upgraded.

Pretty much all modern browsers have spell check built in. In fact, as I am typing this right now, a word I misspelled was underlined in red and I corrected it. So, unless you're using an outdated version of an old browser, you should have spell check.

That's been fixed. Thank you.

Brett -- Nope; don't have spellcheck. Had it under the old system but not with the upgrade. BTW, I have the latest Mozilla Firefox browser, which is what I also had before when it worked.

Brett -- Any way you can make the background brighter and/or text darker? I know I'm getting older but the pale colors make it difficult to read.
