I don't mind whatever changes are made. I am grateful that the forum exists and there are moderators to maintain it for us. I can deal with change most of the time. :-)

Thanks to everyone involved..

Hold down the ctrl key and roll the mouse wheel forward...

This actually only makes the image larger, but it might make you think the screen is wider.

Cam, the problem is you are using the "default" style, instead of "FGRV 2.0." The default style sandwiches the forum posts between the left and right navigation columns.

FGRV 2.0 removes the left navigation column (much of that information is under the "More" tab, up top) so that there is the normal amount of width in the forum posts.

I don't think the programmers are working on improvements to the default style. The "new look" is FGRV 2.0.

I too use the Default style. The only thing in the right navigation is "upcoming events." I can't use FGRV 2.0. I'll scroll more if it's necessary, rather than squint because the background is too bright. Is there a reason NOT to soften the color a bit on FGRV 2.0?

I agree with Donna and the others on the white background. Ouch!

I agree with the many who don't like it. The new version is too bright, and the default is too narrow.

I like the "style" of FGRV 2.0. Really like it when the forums filled the whole screen... works great for pictures, no horizontal scroll bar needed. It's the bright white I can't handle....

There is now an option in your account options (>user cp >> edit options) to disable the right hand column. The white has been taken down a notch a few days ago and we'll keep looking at this. Tiny steps...

Try logging out and then logging back in after you make the changes.

It will be turned off so you get the full width for posts within a topic thread, but NOT in any lists of threads. Lists like "new posts" or "general chat" will still have the right column activated.

Doesn't work for me, even after logging out and back.

Nope, doesn't work for me either. Logged out, logged back in an hour later, sidebar shows turned off, but still there. It is there on lists of, and when reading individual, posts. Just my opinion, but, I liked the old better than the new. That being said, I appreciate everything all you folks do to provide this forum.

For me, the option to turn off the right side bar is only be functioning in 2.0 version and not the original version. Is this what others are experiencing?

It would be great if it were made available in the original as well.

Cheers,
Mark
