So, has anyone figured out how to change back to the old forum theme yet?
This new one is bloody awful, even worse than the last one!

There used to be a setting to change back to the old, old theme, but that doesn't seem to be present anymore, unless I've been looking in the wrong place
Thank god we can attach things again

Would have been nice to have a dark mode included!

I'd take not being able to attach things and constantly being logged out over this new design

The most useful bit of the website, the recent posts box, seems to have been removed, replaced by a full page recent topics section which is functionally useless unless all you want to do is respond to new topics. And there's no longer a shortcut to the topic with the most recent post for each section.

Visually, it may look better, but functionally, it's shit

You click on the "new" box and that takes u to last unread post on a thread
Thought I had opened this by mistake. What format is this!
Can we go back to the one that was on yesterday
And somehow it's got worse!
Please change it back to the old format, I'm struggling to find my way around with this new format. Everything was where it was, this is just a jumbled mess.

Also it seems the original main site has also disappeared.

I'm guessing that in the blind panic to revert back to the old theme something went wrong and we're now stuck with the default MyBB theme.
It also seems that the domain has been set to redirect directly to the forum rather than the main site, it's still there, you just have to access it directly 
For example, https://northeastbuses.co.uk/fleet/ still takes you to the fleet list.

At least everything is still fine on the Tapatalk app, which I mostly use anyway!
This is terrible, please put it back to the way it was.

Thanks

Wonder if any of the moderators are going to mention when it will be going back to the old format. Or are they going to pretend this hasn't happened and just 'hoped' no one noticed till they could fix it.

Even just acknowledgment would be highly appreciated.

Why would we be reverting back? Or what do you feel needs fixing? 

The comments in the thread are obviously there to be seen, but it's not the first time the look of the site and forum has been redesigned.

Well first of all it feels like a forum from the 1990's, I mean look. The old formate was nicer, cleaner, easier to naviagate, the only thing missing was the ablity to upload things.
