Can you guys see any difference ? It does look a lot different to me. The first pick in this post is from firefox, I have to say they've lately been screwing small things a little bit here and there lately...
Firefox is breaking my companies wordpress site too so I'm blaming them, even edge renders it properly!

I'm using FF most of the time, and it renders properly for me.
So, not sure what's going on.

You could just edit the subject line like I did above, I removed the "RE" but could have edited the whole text if I wanted to

Edit to be more helpful

you would need to edit some of the php files that came with the forum, depending which version of phpbb you are using, but a quick Google suggests various edits to either remove the "Re" or the title completely is relatively simple to acheive

Regarding to fonts issues - it's issue with true type fonts... Check your browser / Windows and set them properly and it will be fixed...

If you could change .row .pagination { font-size } to 1.1em or 1.2em it makes it much easier to read.

Maybe. We'll bring it up to discussion, but do realize the first priority now is to iron out the bugs. That may take a while, and Steven unfortunaly is the only with the means and knowledge to do so.

It seems the new line after quotes works in the wrong way:

leads to an excess line:

Ok so after a couple of days of use I have 1 major gripe.

On my smartphone I tap the notifications icon and I can't tell which ones are outstanding, they are all kinda grey shaded.

However If I select "show all" the outstanding notifications are highlighted in a nice blue.

Can we please have this Latter behavior replicated in the small drop down?

I'm on iOS, I haven't spent much time on the full size version to notice if this happens there too.

Some fixes done.
  • Editing or quoting posts with links should be fixed (seems like a _blank was added all the time)
  • Removed the red alert box aside of the inbox in the header (as new PMs also end up as notifications
  • Moved pager above ad at the bottom of forum pages

Confirmed, there is no highlight on the desktop version either, you need to click "see all" to see which notifications have not been acted on.
