Please just offer the stock XenForo theme as an option, you don't even have to make it the default. The forums are not usable in the current state, both mobile or Desktop despite your suggestions that this new theme is better for mobile (it's patently worse in basically every way).
It would literally take seconds to just offer an option that dozens of people are asking for, your continued dismissal of what your user base is asking for is totally not going to go well for you in the end.
When you post to a thread when you are not on the last page and you get the message "More messages to see.. View Them" if you click the "View Them" link it takes you to the post you just posted and skips all other posts. This is extremely annoying, especially on mobile since you also can't select a specific page (WTF? you could do that in 1998).
jesus I didn't think this forum could get any worse, but somehow it looks like hot garbage (vs plane old garbage with the previous xenforo change).
Forum is so ugly that it has killed any interest in me wanting to come back. Hope someone, somehow, can make a new VB theme for this monstrosity
A couple of observations which lead to a suggestion:
1. There is no easy way to jump to a forum anymore, except from the homepage. The little box-above-three-boxes icon is gone.
2. There is a list of all the forums on the right column, but all it lets you do is post.
So, wouldn't it make sense to add a button there to "Read" or something, to go read a forum?
What's the purpose for "watched forums" now? Before the update this alerted me of newly created threads. This is no longer happening, and there is no option to activate such alerts again in the preferences as far as I can see.
There used to be a checkbox to disable smileys. I don't see it right now. I also don't see a way in quick reply to go to the advanced reply. Preview just shows a preview below the text box here and doesn't go to a new page like it used to.
