Should have asked earlier but...
How do you stop the first post showing vertically down the left hand side?
We are currently working on this issue, after some forum updates we were unable to make any changes. We could add new adverts but unable to remove them.
We are testing and fine tuning a new layout. It might take a few days to sort out, however you may use it. Just to warn you it may change all the time as it's still being worked on.
At the bottom of the forum on the drop down menu where it says "default style", change it to "Forum Style One".
Logging in issues have also been sorted.
Thanks for that. Only problem now is can properly read some of the tosh that is posted!
