Might be because our theme is for an older version of phpbb, I will check to see if there is a newer version. Sorry about the problems.

Doesn't look like there is, might have to look for a new theme :( Suggestions? Search for some phpBB 3.0.6 themes, if you suggest a theme that we end up using, I will sponsor someone and upgrade them to a gold membership or extend their gold membership. :)

Be sure that they are for version 3.0.6, as there were some major feature additions in 3.0.6.

As for styles, it might be nice to have a lighter background with dark type. Easier to read, I say. But then, other than black rifles, I don't like black that much. :laugh:

Also, a couple of choices were very narrow, necessitating multiple lines per entry. A wider format (such as we have now) allows more topics/posts per page view, making it more efficient at each glance.

All in all, I didn't think the format was broken. Do we need to fix it?

Can easily change the width of the forum, we had to do it with the current style we use.

The current style isn't entirely compatible with the upgraded forum software.

A lighter background sounds good.

You can check out the styles we're currently looking at by going into the UCP and going into Board Preferences and then change the board style.

Once we pick one we will set it to the default and disable the ability to choose.

Try using one of the new styles and see if you continue to get the error.
