That's really weird, Klazien... When I use Yorky (does not matter if I try either the light grey one or the dark grey one (on which of the two are you?)), I cannot see the youtube video's in chrome (which I especially enabled to test)... But good for you!  :thumbs:

See  2 scrnsht.  One opened on our website, the other opened from our website (rightclick mouse) open on YouTube, and both work as allways. No problem whatsoever.  I use Chrome and use Windows 10. (?)  Could it be personal adjustment?  Just guessing 8)

One thing stays different and that is to put some items sticky on top.
Like the contest, it is sticky but not in the top items. just wandering around a bit ;)   :headbang: 

Not a problem, I just mention it  ;)

Again, weird, but might be me:
for me the current IOTM's are sticking on top?

But what does gerrit's post from the 12th do in that section?  :fp:

I'm testing the RDD theme which is more like the last Fractal Forums. I realize security such as HTTPS is necessary so upgrades have to happen.

Good on you 3Dickulus for doing the admin work :thumb_up:  My experience with databases is it's best practice to put the site into 'maintenance mode' when making changes to the underlying sql or whatever database. Your actually close to Pacific time and the international dateline so your waking hours are outside of Europe, the UK and most of the US.

Recently on Gimp Chat one guys avatar took-over every post after work on the back end. Very funny! Gimp Chat has a red strike through the 'lock' symbol in the address bar because its very old and they have to keep it that way.

@ Caleidoscope
That's the "Recent Topics" list, if you go to the host page @ https://fractalforums.org/fractal-image-of-the-month/70 you will see they are pinned to the top, but posts there will show in the "Recent Topics" list in the order they are posted.

@Tas_mania I like RDD, some of the things are a bit big or spaced out too much but it's got potential to become my fav theme.

I think I got the bugs worked out of Yorky so it's back as the default theme for new users. If it gives you any problems ( test with other themes first to make sure ) let me know and I'll try to straighten it out for you.

The black one is at least not as bright as the default one, it should be better for your eyes.

@TGlad you can change your theme here https://fractalforums.org/index.php?action=profile;area=theme on the first line you will see your current theme and right next to it click on (change)

after selecting your theme be sure to visit the link again and at the bottom right? of the page you will see a button "Change Profile" that actually saves the settings, otherwise it will be back to your original theme the next time you login.

some of the preview thumbnails are just wrong but that's what came with the theme(s) from the author(s)
