I hate it. It also doesn't make much sense.
This is like what cNet did to their home page, making it close to unusable.
Why replace nice listing with the first couple of lines showing with 3 large panels showing full post of just those 3?
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

Sounds nice you need to clear your cache as it looks normal here:

Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

We'll just have to live with some of these changes because they're incorporated (by Invision Power Board) into the latest updated version of the board software that Scot/Fran just installed the other day.

Ah, I had never viewed the portal page so I didn't know what you were referring to.

I never go to the portal either but I hit the tab to see what crp was talking about.
Since I never go there, I have no idea what it looked like before. :whistling:

I've never used that Portal thing. I always click on the View New Content link to see what's happened since I was here last.

Yes, the portal page is still using the LoFi version and I have no idea why. It was another 'feature' of the security upgrades we did.

This is the first time I've looked at the 'Portal'.
I do the same as Eric, 'View New Content'.

Tweak it 'til it breaks, then learn how to fix it.
