Ok, the smaller text just is NOT going to work for me. It makes everything else way to small to deal with. How do I switch to this "Sub Silver" format?

I can't read the boards if I have to scroll back and forth. To damned much trouble. And I can't deal with tiny text on everything I do just to read these boards for a few minutes a day. Gotta be a happy medium somewhere.

To switch, go to your profile and select SubSilver as "Board Style".

I believe I squashed the bug responsible for this issue. The problem was that the old comments section was never setup to handle categories. As a result the id numbers for the articles and the screenshots have began to overlap. Originally, I resolved this by adding support for categories, but on the phpBB forums I needed to create a link between the comment posts and the forum posts, which I based on the id numbers of both the post and the forum. However, there was one pathway in which only the id number of the post was checked. I have now added an additional forum check to that pathway, which should resolve the issue.

Thank you for your bug reports, they have been invaluable.

Great. Maybe a request wouldn't be out of place: Could the post with the link back to the article be done in the style of announcements so that it's at the head of every page instead of only the first one?

THANK YOU Gaidal!

The SubSilver IS rather ugly, but at least I can read the boards now.

No problem Scarlett :)

The comments section still doesn't work properly: while it now shows that there are new threads for the latest news that was posted, clicking on them gives a message about "empty thread". Also, while there now has been a posting in one of these, it still shows that "empty thread" message.

It already does. At least the one you get with the Igloo layout.

It happened to me too, whatever it was. For about half an hour or so I couldn't connect to CH or the RT. Other sites loaded just fine, though.

Well the SF site didn't connect either. Must be some local thing.

Erm... what? :|
I'm using the default style... no idea how it's called.

With black to red top-down gradients everywhere...

Okay - changed it now. Looks MUUUCH better! :)

(I had that banner (which I have now again) in the beginning - did I switch the style or have you changed that?)

More a quirk than a bug: I've noticed that if you post a reply to a CH news item through the board, and read it on the board, it looks fine. But if you read the comments that you posted through the message board on the actual CH website, sometimes formatting gets lost, particularly for quoting. Does that make sense?

Unfortunately it makes sense. And I'm not sure if Protecyon can fixed it.

I can see the difficulty - problem is that if you don't use the RT boards and rely exclusively on CH to read the news articles, many of the comments are incomprehensible.

I think it's because the forum uses BB codes and Celestial Heavens uses HTML codes.
