Thanks for the upgrade. Is there a way to reset the page to full width? I had this (page width shrinkage) happen on another forum and there was an option at the bottom of the page to adjust it back. Possibly needs an admin to "enable" it for individual users though?

I haven't found anything yet. What device and browser are you using? How much has it shrunk?

Don't waste too much time, if you're not aware of the feature. I'll ask the other forum admin for pointers, it's just a nicety I'd like rather than a necessity.

Laptop, Win 7, Firefox (all updated).

The page width is now a fraction of the size it was before as in less than half the screen of the page is taken up by the forum page with the borders now taking up over 30% of the screen width.

Still no "Like" button! I'm outraged that we are expected to articulate our impressions, rather than just click an icon...

One of our prototypes did have the 'like' button.. I'll have a chat with my administrative colleagues concerning that in due course but for now we want the forum to bed-in and settle down before any further tweaking...

Well, on my system it is bedding down on a narrow plank! Nice wide borders, somewhat narrow main page. It is fairly noticeable on a 27" monitor! Still, nice job (although I am having to learn my way around the system again!).
