Hi David, I don't see any noticeable difference in prosilver at all. it looks exactly the same. the buttons are exactly the same etc.

I did not check the css or the html to see if the way they are created has changed but the final look is the same.

did I miss something?

Yes, else David wouldn't tell that it is different. Try it on a mobile phone, or just look at the source of the pages.

don't have a phone to test it on and I said I didn't know what code changes may have been made. however, that link to area 51 is showing standard prosilver. It looks no different than the 3.0 version does.

con't get me wrong, I am not bashing 3.1 at all. I was merely replying to a statement that the changes are noticeable at that link.

I have it installed on a test board I really don't see many "noticeable" changes in the look of the board at all.

Yeah they're not Earth-shattering visible differences or improvements but they are here and there. The notification system is pretty slick and the responsive layout is an improvement for tablets and mobile phones. I'll take some screenshots on my iPad later and post them.

I really like the fact that when you click on a topic title you're taken to the last unread message. As far as the buttons go they have been mostly removed. Take a close look at them. ;-)

Please note that I will not be porting any of my mods to phpBB 3.1. Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

Note the larger overall size which actually makes navigating around a bit easier. More so on a much smaller form factor such as a mobile phone. The beauty of this is that it did not require a separate style. The main style adapts itself on its own, which I think is pretty amazing (awesome job Arty!). The fact that the last topic title takes you to the last unread post is a big bonus on all platforms since it doesn't require you to click on the really tiny icon that shows up next to the poster username.

The wrench simply contains a pop-up bubble of subscription options.

There are also changes in the UCP, MCP, and ACP but this isn't really the time for a full review. The above as well as some other differences highlight some of the positive changes that should make phpBB seem more "modern" by some people's views/standards.
