Hey, so I just joined Team GX and they use the latest IPB forum software. It looks great, runs smoothly, and I love the new Javascript/Ajax addition. :D What do you think of it?


Not sure if this should be in Designers' Cafe or Webmasters Corner so idk, move where necessary. :P

You're in the right place. :)

Gio showed me that earlier and it looks pretty cool. It's like what CB has only fancier, right? I don't know much about forums...

i duno, honestly i'm glad we don't have it. i don't like how it feels but maybe it's just cause i'm biased against rounded corners and dislike reading text on dark backgrounds.

Straight out. I'd hate to have to get used to that if Jusun ever decides to integrate it into the forums, more than I did with cB's old versions.

I don't mind the design of it, it's just too wide. I hate when pages span across my entire screen.

I hope Jusun doesn't decide to switch to it either, but why do I think that's going to be his next big update? Did he mention it or something? I don't know, the forum design is okay as it is.

I thought I saw a post that Rebs made where she said that Jusun texted her about updating the forums software. Again, you can always modify the width. :/

That has nothing to do with the software. It's user styles.

Yeah, you know that you can change the style, right? CB itself is heavily modified; this isn't the default look of IPB.
