Thank you for all the time and effort you have put into this, Jeff. The new layout is brilliant; clean, streamlined and easy to navigate.

Jeff,

Is it possible to get an overview of the images (e.g. a what does a scrolling button refer to)?

If you place your mouse cursor over any of the graphics a tooltip should appear with a description. There is also a FAQ link at the top.

I have changed it so clicking on the logo at the top takes you to the Forum home rather than the Centre home.

It used to be that when one made a post (for example, under "Heading to Fingal") you could enter an expiry date, this way the post would disappear after a few days which if used keeps the Forum less cluttered. What happened to this feature?

That was a 3rd party add-on that has not been updated to the version we are using. I check occasionally to see if it gets updated.

The changes are okay overall, but I hope you'll consider going back to the Thumbs Up instead of the hearts.

The 'Thanks for Posting' mod is back and the 'Heart' one is turned off. Let me know if there are any issues.
