Thank you to everyone that participated in the forum redesign open beta. We received a lot of very helpful feedback that went a long way in helping us squash bugs and make the new template more visually attractive.
Starting on Friday (25 June), everyone will see the new forum redesign by default. If you don’t like the redesign, or if it’s causing you trouble, you catch switch back to the legacy XDA design by hitting the link in the top notification bar (see attached), or by scrolling to the bottom of any forum page to change the theme manually. For those of you seeing the new design for the first time, be sure to check out jake044′s walkthrough of the new design which explains where everything is.
The new theme is still not 100% perfect, and so please continue to report bugs in the bugs thread. And because we’re still having some development issues with Opera Mobile and IE6, users that access the site with either browser will be redirected to the old theme.
We really hope you enjoy using the new theme. As mentioned, it was many (many) months in the making._________
