Hi,

We've upgraded the forums to the latest version of Xenforo. You may notice some small changes here and there. There are some bigger changes under the hood but we haven't enabled those yet. Right now we just wanted to get this up and running on the new version.

Let me know if you notice any issues.

thanks
arn

The MacRumors logo is missing on mobile. So far, that's the only issue I've noticed.

Thanks for the update Arn!

The ‘Mark read’ tab on the mobile version for the threads has been removed, not sure if it’s by default or error.

2.2 woot! Looking good guys, did it play hell with your style? I'm guessing you were prepared for that.

Yeah style changes were the biggest pain. Some add on issues but the big stuff is working.

Icons look busted using Tenfourfox and other Firefox forks for older Macs, I have not had a chance to try this out on a modern browser so not sure if the issue is present there.

Bigger fonts and therefor easier click targets on the mobile version? Or is it just me? Either way I like it.

I did seem to be having some sizing issues? When I go to 'Front Page' text is regular size...Forums and others are smaller? 'A' and larger 'A' ins Safari menu didn't seem to correct this....OS on MBP is up to date. ???

Went out and came back in and seems to have fixed it...

I like the way things look when replying directly to a post. It seems to 'contain' the initial quote better.
Merely my opinion.

PS: Should updates and such not happen late at night? This one seemed to happen in the 'middle' of the day.

The font sizes aren’t supposed to be different. If you think it looks off, post a screenshot.

Fonts are slightly larger than they used to be, with Edge on Windows 7. I don't have a 'before' shot.

Edit: It looks like it's the
Code:
font-size: 1.5rem
line under
Code:
media="(prefers-color-scheme: light)" .structItem-title
If I disable that using the dev tools then the text returns to normal size.
