How do I turn off the "Added to Forum Gallery" images displayed at left? All forums, all images. I did search but could not find the answer. Thx.

I second this. I find it takes up too much space and detracts from the purpose of the list of threads. I'd like to put this "new gallery images" box elsewhere. - Will I be able to rearrange boxes/elements like this?

Thx,
Frank

A way to hide the tumbnail images to the left is reduce the with of your browser to 600 pixels and then they will be hidden.

Appreciate the reply, but that's kind of a mickey-mouse work-a-round. Then when you browse somewhere else, you have to reset to browser and so forth.

A much better solution would be a setting in AMASS to turn it off.

I wish somebody would let us know where that setting is.

YES, I find it too visually distracting when I want to quickly scan through a list of threads. There should be an option to turn it off.

I'll add that switch in to the do list. Although, I do not understand why they would bother anyone, and it is all about getting information to people what new images are there in that forum. But my mileage obviously varies :)

I'm left handed and scroll with my left thumb and keep accidently opening up images. So I would love to either be able to switch the thumbnails to the right side or close them.

Install Ad-Block Plus, click the ABP button and choose "Block Element" and pick it, or add "photography-on-the.net###gimages" and "photography-on-the.net###gimages_head​" to the filter list. This won't make the forums any wider though, just blocks the images from showing. You could probably write a GreaseMonkey script that would fix that though.

Yes, kill the thumbnails and allow avatars to be turned off. They are frickin huge.

Thank you, Pekka for adding that option.

Not that they really bother anybody. But for me, I'm here solely for knowledge, not image sharing but I do periodically click on an image and comment to support.

But one thing to consider is the forum design. You've created something with a lot of nice, white open space. In the world of typography that's a good thing. The image thumbnails tend to muddy it up. Makes pages too "busy." They just don't quite fit the nice clean design. But, just my opinion.

If anyone uses ABP (I highly recommend it) this is a great solution. I am going to try it when I get back to my desktop computer.

You can also add the following filter in AdBlock Plus:

photography-on-the.net###gimages_td

That takes care of the whitespace in front of the threads, but it aligns the threads a bit too much to the left, which isn't ideal either. I just don't get it why disabling the forum gallery images isn't an option in version 1.0 of the new forum. The fact that a lot of people weren't going to like this is something you could have seen coming from miles away.

As it stands now, I'm not a big fan of the new forum. Readability has taken a (big) hit for me since 90% of the new forum is white/black or some shade of grey. My eyes don't know where to go because of the almost colourless look.

The new forum could also use an inverted look, where the background is dark and the font color is a light color. I find this much easier on the eyes.

A few others have asked for the same thing. This request surprises me because I once studied design in print advertising--it was part of my job--and found that it was well established, in research, that black on white is easier to read than white on black.

An advantage of the new custom-made software is that you may be able to get such requests granted. With vBulletin or phpbb, choices are very few.

To be honest, I'm registered on another vBulletin forum where you can easily switch between a light and a dark theme at the bottom of the page.

Now regarding the dark (inverted) theme... Take a look at the following situation:

You're in your (bed)room at night, possibly watching TV (or sleeping) and you have no lights on. At this point the pupil of your eye is (very) large since it's pretty dark inside the room. As soon as you use your smartphone/tablet to browse the forum, you'll be presented with a large chunk of white which will force your pupil to close, but the feeling that comes with it is a little unpleasant (almost as if someone is shining in your eyes with a flashlight). That's where a dark (inverted) theme could do wonders.
