Regarding the background... I definitely like the clouds better. The problem with the trees picture was that it is such an intense green color -- right beside a theme that is predominantly red. The contrast just really stood out badly and wanted to yank my eyes off to the side. A background is supposed to be something that breaks up the monotony of a blank space without drawing your attention away from the primary content. That's why I suggested washing it out, but honestly I think the blue of the clouds blends a lot better in this theme.

And for what its worth, I do prefer an image rather than a solid color for the background. I think the page would just look too 'flat' (which is fine for a mobile device with limited screen space), but a background gives more dimension when you're on a desktop screen.

And thanks for adding back the quick-reply box. I'm happy now :)

I just refreshed and don't see the fix yet. In case you fixed it in a sandbox that's not live.

Nope, haven't had a chance yet my friend. This and the requested active topics button are in the same template file, so I'd like to sit down and get them both at the same time.

I've been having a problem when I use the forum on the Internet on my phone with the new theme that it lags when I type a long response. I dont know if anyone else is having the same problem but I do not have a problem on Tapatalk.

I'm not sure what phone you have, but I have a 3 year old smart phone and sometimes it lags a bit. I think when the phones memory starts getting full it will lag a bit since the theme is a bit complex to fit all different modes. Next time try closing the browser program and ending its task, then opening it again.

all browsing on my phone is slow, not just here. On my PC and tablet though, it works great.

I took lunch today to fix the issues. Sorry for the delay in getting to it. It's been a super busy month.

The menu items were updated Bill, and now includes the 4WD disconnect link.

The Active Topics link was added to the white menu bar, and displays only in PC mode, in case people are using tablets (or super large phones?) and can't use the drop down menu.

The mobile popup menu scrolling issue was "bandaided" by removing the article links from displaying. This way you don't have to scroll the menu anymore (at least when in portrait view, in landscape view, you may still lose a few items at the bottom of the menu).

Anything else, please let me know.

We've finally rolled this theme into the articles section of the site, at http://www.offroadtb.com. There will inevitably be bugs, so please post any issues that you see here. Thank you Mason for your help.

Unfortunately, I already see some bugs that I missed, but don't have time to work on them at the moment. Anyways, check it out, and let me know of any broken links. We will get working on them.
