As many of you know, the forum software is the latest version of IPB that is available and installed.
Though we are familar with the older version, the new version has many more options and features located in different areas than before.
As we find / install / activate new options, we will keep everyone informed

The latest find is the quick reply in the forums. It looks like just a singular empty line at first, but when you place your mouse over it, it then opens to a post box.
Enjoy!

I like the lay out. Very clean and simple. To address Kelemvor's concern, if you leave the NTH graphic on the left and right aligh the text that is below it I think that would reduce the screen area taken up by the header. Other than that, I think you have done it 51, a nearly perfect layout.

I had another thought. The page isn't scaling to fill a widescreen (16:9 or 16:10 or wider) monitor like the rest of the site does.

here's how it looks for me:

Number of downloads: 10

and the forum section currently looks like:

 In case it matters, same here 1920x1080 so it is centered for me, not bad but using a bit more of the page seems ideal.

Looks good. The review is developing nicely. I like the picture-viewer-software. http://newtechhorizon.com/nthforum/public/style_emoticons/default/36_1_11[1].gif

Another new reviews page.
Ive been working with the review tean on the new Wordpress reviews page.
It woks much better than Joomla and seems more stable.
I will continue to search for a way to bridge the DB's.
In the meantime, I changed the link button to take you there.
Please take a look at this and give us some feedback.
Direct link is http://newtechhorizon/reviews
