    BTW there's also a new simpler 'mobile edition' for the forums themselves. Visit it in a mobile device browser and it'll auto-detect. We do have all sorts of good troubleshooting help & sometimes you might need some info when you have nothing but your pda/phone handy.

    Love the design (its cleaner), but I miss the Zimbra colors...

    I like the new theme colors very much, but the screen font sizes are much smaller than before. The font size in the compose window however seems the same.

    Sure, I can make the fonts bigger via my browser's controls, but then if I make the screen font as big as before, the font in the compose window is way too big.

    May I ask if you can't make the fonts in both areas the same size, as they were before please?

    Thanks!

    Lightbulb Small CSS bug

    Just so you know, there is a float clearing or overflow bug on the new theme.

    I use FireFox and frequently scale up the font size for easier reading. When I scale up the new theme, the BUY link from the main links wraps down to a new line.

    Because the main forums table does not have a clear: both applied to it, the forum shifts to the right, to make room for the link. It only gets worse as the font size scales up.

    The problem can be resolved in one of 3 ways:

    1. Remove the width: 780px from div#top-nav ul (probably the best, since this might affect other areas)
    2. Add overflow: hidden to that same element.
    3. add clear: both to the table.


    This hopefully is easy, and would make the forums more useful.

    Otherwise, I REALLY like the new theme and colors. It has a much more professional feel.

    I increased the size to 12px, which is the size it was before. Is that good? Should we make it larger?

    I really like the new scheme, it does look more professional and is clean and easy to read. I also appreciate that it's not using a fixed width layout, as thay are annoying

    Like the new colors! Nice job.

    Only think I don't like, are the buttons.
