As you have probably noticed, the site look has changed a little bit. The reason for this is because DiabloRealm has been updated to the latest version of the forum software we use (I.P.Board). The software update is one of the first steps toward preparing the site for the arrival of Diablo III. During the next few weeks, the staff here at DiabloRealm (and possibly also some members) will be utilizing some of the new features of the site for the creation of Diablo III content.

As part of the software upgrade process, a new theme had to be created. As you can see, we decided to base the new theme off of the one we had previously. Due to the short turnaround time for the creation of the theme, there is likely to be a few oddities here or there. Most of these will be things like border, background, or text colors clearly being too bright or incorrect for the theme. If you come across any of these "oddities" it would be of great help if you could post them here in this thread.

I would also like to use this post to thank Elfangor for his generous donation of our new content management system.

Note that I am already aware that the majority of the left menu links take you to a "Coming Soon" page. The old content has not been ported over to the updated site yet. The correct links will be restored as soon as the content is transferred.

I'm sure this has nothing to do with the new layout, but it seems like the paypal donate button just redirects you to DR's index page. Not sure if it's just me or not.

I'm really liking the new layout.

I am glad that you guys like the new layout. I like it also, although I am not yet 100% sold on the forum view (the view that lists all the threads for a forum section).

Indeed it does... the only thing lacking is navigation links. I can't find a way to get from the homepage to the forums list without first clicking on a post and then navigating my way back up to the board index. Also I haven't figured out how I will fit links to the upcoming content pages within it.

Misplaced for now, returning in the future. If everything stays according to plan.

Fix that shit bro. For reals.

Also, how does the warn system now work? because I can't tell if 10 warning points is critical mass or not?

Also also.. Like buttons? Shitcakes.

There is a link at the top of the top right of every forum page labeled "View New Posts". As for one on the homepage, I have added a new link under the recent posts block. (Though I should note that I am experimenting with a few locations for this link so it may end up moving.)

I am still working on the setup of the warn system. They changed the way it works, but it has a lot more features and appears to be more useful. I'll let you know about the "critical mass" amount when it gets finalized.
And for the like buttons... you are going to have to be more specific than just saying "Shitcakes"...

I would assume "shitcakes" = you or someone with the capabilities to add a like button.

And I guess he just wants a like button.

When/If you add one be sure that all of his posts only have a dislike button :)
