    Oh, I see now. I had it on the default and it's a different logo/font.

    Yes, I've created a new logo, done very quickly in a very ancient version of Paint shop pro. Might as well have been MS Paint The new logo is visible in all the SimpleColour skins, but not the default style, well not yet anyway. I'm hoping someone with a flair for these things might see the new logo, take pity on my 1337 Art skilz (my tech drawing lecturer once remarked upon my attempts as 'an abortion'. true story.) and come up with something that is at least an order of magnitude less crap...

    The problem with the old multicoloured logo is that it's mahoosive. the one in the default skin is too wide. I think the one in the SimpleColour skins is about right.

    I use the purple too. Dunno but to my eyes it helps highlight the threads better and makes them easier to follow, but then again i am blind !.

    I think that's them all...

    Other than the 'post icons' below the advanced post window... not sure whether to change them.

    you might have to Ctrl+F5 to clear the image cache.

    Good for me too, I'm using simple purple too.
    I have a Rock and I'm not afraid to use it.

    Love the new banner, very cool.

    The smillies window is much better too.
    Ohh, just noticed. The shortcut in my favourites tab has its own spinning vinyl icon, how cool's that.
    Great work Kenny. You're da'man.

    Where's/what's the favourites tab? Never use it because I've never seen one.

    Favourites tab runs across the top of my IE. I think its optional but its handy for the sites you visit more frequently.

    Aha, in Safari they are Bookmarks. I thought you meant something within the forum software.

    Kenny, I used to change application icons on Macs by going to the 'Get Info' from the main app file and simply pasting a new one in place of the existing one. On PCs I guess it's in 'Properties'.

    Well I'm slowly getting used to it. Doesn't help being all one insipid colour. Must say I prefered it as it was. However I've just been on the 'Wam and it's a complete nightmare. Didn't even realise I wasn't logged in until I came to post and in the end I gave up. Don't think I'll be going back there.

    Chops, you can change the colours from a choice of many.
    Its at the bottom of the page LHS.

    There's something for everyone, am sure you'll find something you like.
