Thank you for your comments such feedback is very important as it will help us change and improve this forum.
Just to give you some more background: This forum was running on an old version of phpBB so we updated it to the latest version of phpBB, it was important to do this as the old outdated version could be vulnerable to hacking/malware etc.
The old version was using functionality which is no longer available or viable to use on the latest version of phpBB however we are looking for new alternatives and hope to upgrade this forum over the coming days/weeks.
Re: "I don't like the dark background and the white writing!" - The 'style' (eg: the look and feel) of this online forum can be easily changed and over the next while we will be looking to change the colours, font sizes, navigation links etc based on overall feedback from yourself and anyone else who uses this forum.
Re: "When I went into the old site I knew what topics were current" - Yes this is something that is missing on the new version of the forum (previously there was a 'portal page') but rest assured that we are looking to restore this general overview. For the moment you may wish to use the 'Quick Links' (top left just below the banner image of Dún Laoghaire) and select 'Unread Posts'.
Rocker thanks and please keep posting comments and suggestions as we update and improve this online forum as all feedback is most welcome.
