Hi, first of all thanks for all this hard work.

I´ve noticed that the latest post at the bottom in mobile was replaced by what´s new, which has a different behaviour (I think) can we get an option to have the latest post back as a button down there?

I just increased the cache clearing frequency to try and see if it does anything. If you could report at the end of the day or tomorrow if this issue came back or not, I'd appreciate. :)

Hey creativeforge, I still have the issue on mobile. I’ve restarted my phone, refreshed the page, toggled between themes. Still have the issue. What I see is that the the first thread title in the list actually loads fine for a tiny split second and then as soon as the full page finishes loading, the title for the first thread disappears.

Hi,

Thank you for the offer, and suggestions. However we are going to be staying with the brand we have and know right now.

All the best,

Andre
Then could you please ditch the Verdana font for messages?
Helvetica Neue looks far more better. Verdana shows the small case "i" like an "l":

Also, the weight of the regular fonts will look better if being set as 400 in lieu of 300.

I've moved the Alert Bell where it used to be.
Still the same! Should it, or did you do something?
Check now?

OK, so I tested this.

Here is Verdana, at 300, normal text.

1- Verdana is clearer to read, not compressed.
2- The small case "i" does not look like an "I".
3- Increasing the weight to 400 is not making a positive difference.

So, I don't know where you tested this to find it better?

The choice for Verdana was made after testing a number of fonts for clarity for everyone, including people with affected vision. So for now we will not make a change as it has no visible advantage.

Hope this helps, sorry if this is inconvenient for you.

Regards,

Andre

@ShikiSuen

have you thought about trying standup comedy or maybe taking up a new hobby?

Seriously...................
It's OK, he has a right to suggest, maybe it would have been positive, but nope. Not sure what screen he uses either if it's desktop or mobile, could make a difference for him.

It was not the craziest request I received. ;)

You can use a plugin like Stylus to use whatever font you prefer on this site, with a bit of CSS (cascading style sheets, not Cinematic Studio Strings lol).

Code:
.bbWrapper {
  font-family: 'Helvetica Neue';
  font-weight: 400;
}

That's not what Verdana really looks like authentically.
What you have seen through your computer is how Verdana gets rendered with ClearType hinting instructions (which is totally not used on macOS and iOS).

Considering both your preference of ClearType Verdana and the better looking of Helvetica Neue on macOS (but not available on Windows), you can write CSS font fallback sequence which begins with: "font-family: Helvetica Neue, Verdana, ...."

This will let the theme use Verdana on Windows, unless a hacked version of Helvetica Neue is manually installed. Since Helvetica Neue is the first font in the sequence, it has the most priority on macOS. Still, Verdana only looks acceptable on Windows through instructed ClearType rendering.

Hi, there will be no changes made to the fonts. Please stop insisting?

Andre
