Yea, I put it up on the logo area, and it looks good. Thanks for making that banner, Cliff.

That is going to require some sort of MOD I think. I have tried different ways to insert HTML code in there and it doesn't work. Or if someone else knows, they can tell me how to do that.

I made more changes. I added a few required custom fields to the registration. I also installed a mod that prevents newly registered users from posting links. The criteria for being a newly registered user are my secret. Very few of you fit it though.

I'd also recommend changing the sticky icons to something that sticks out more.

I can't tell where sticky's start and new threads begin, the old forum it was much easier to tell this.

I couldn't find any customer sticky icons. So I used they ones from the other theme, but they aren't very different looking either. So I changed the text color to black. I also changed announcements to red. That should be different enough.

I've just noticed that links open in the same window, before you used to get a new tab/window...can that be changed?

topicrow.ATTACH_ICON_IMG}

The text above appears after the icon and before the descriptive text of the messages, both with IE and FireFox

Ok, I got all that stuff fixed. I think the link thing is only going to work for future links though. It doesn't seem to work with the ones already here. Kind of weird, but that's what I notice.
