Good morning all,

Our community re-theme is launching this morning. As with any major technical changes, there are likely to be disruptions. Things will break!

We ask you to bear with us and please feel free to let us know if something continues to not work.

    At first I found the new look a little troublesome. I think I was so used to the old one.
    Now I find it OK and just as easy to get around as it always has been.

    Have finally sussed out how to find all my recent comments. A little bit onerous but doable. I am much less happy with the inability to successfully mark posts as read whether using Safari or DuckDuckGo on an iPad. That’s an obvious issue as it makes the site way harder to read. Ditto the inability to mark my profile as public/private. Any change you make does not stick.
