    I tried searching "change forum layout" "forum layout" "black forum" nothing came up :(
    But sorted now, dark v1.3 is pretty nice

    Having gone back to black, I must admit it's annoying how the trust, quote, multi and quick buttons are still blue.

    You'll want the updated theme then. There's a couple here, including the decent version of the black theme:

    Me loves the new Light v1.0 OcUK forum :)

    EDIT: DevianT v1.1 is even better.

    But where are all OcUK banners and ads gone?

    Once you go black, you never go back.


    I think you have an old version or something as I don't have that problem.
    Also, anything you don't like in the theme is easily changed. First thing I did was set the max-width on all images to match my screen res.

    I've sorted it now, got the update from the page I linked to with the new logo as well.

    :D

    How did you set the max image res?

    Yes, it's an add-on for FF that allows it to be changed.
