The "New Posts" is still (kind of)there, it's just not a button at the moment. On the forum drop down menu at the top go down to "Unread" and click on it. This will show you all posts you haven't read, starting with the most recent.
The thing I was complaining about was the "unread" part. As stated in my previous post, I would like to see all recent posts, not only unread posts among recent ones.
http://omnimaga.org/recent
E-Mail? I didn't get an E-Mail..
It seems that nobody did. Google must have blocked it or something when we sent it.
Usability should be the first goal of any design, not the look.

Anyhow, the new theme is like gnome3, looks good but is unusuable.
You made this post didn't you? Seems usable enough to me. May I mention again that this theme is still a WIP and nowhere near done?
Quote
1. Borders: Left and right, black. Why? If I zoom out they stay the same size.
Why would you zoom out ever?
Quote
2. Size + Spacing: On my 1366*768 laptop screen I can barely read the title of the first post without scrolling and at the bottom I can't even see the last post.
Raise your issue with SMF. There isn't much changed with the sizing compared to the default curve theme.
Quote
3. Where are the new posts listed? I want a short overview what happend while I was away and not a huge list with the posts themselves.
Read the rest of the thread please... This has been answered so many times.
Quote
4. Bad post layout: No newline for text after images, look at the news section
That is a bug with the news section only. If you look at the actual thread you'll see it's not an issue. Please report all bugs with http://ourl.ca/issue instead of posting them here. I will not sort through the threads just to find issues with the new site when I have already provided you with a tool to report them.

I hope I'm the only one who thinks the current theme is total crap compared to the old one.
I'm looking forward to be able to use the old ones again.
Yeah thanks for that. I spent a good couple days working on this. Really appreciate you shitting on my work especially knowing it's still a WIP.
Quote
And a smaller issue (I'll report on ourl.ca/issue):
OmnomIRC isn't visible on the quick-reply preview page.

Sorry if I under-appreciate your work, I know how hard it is to satisfy everone, especially with a new design...
That is not an issue, that is a request. Please log it with http://ourl.ca/request

@voginator theme will be fixed soon we went live with this because the security holes in smf1 were starting to be an issue so we decided to go with something simple but workable to protect your information and the website as a whole.

@spiroh a tutorial / something will be made time obliging

Post and replies right below your avatar for both will also be made more prominent as the theme is updated.  Post layout is also theme related.

Funny, somehow I didn't receive any email regarding the upgrade either.

Another minor thing that would be nice would be to make the Quick Edit icon more obvious. I really appreciated it when DJ_O did it on the old forum.

Speaking of which, I was going to link to http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?topic=4589.0 (where we discussed the button) but for some reason it's erroring—did we lose any posts? D:

I didn't get an email either. However, I did notice that some links aren't going to their correct places. An example of this is the 'TI-Boy Emulation reaches CSE calculators' news.

We realize some things are broken. If you find issues, go to the "help" tab at the top of the page. Choose Report Issue/bug, and go from there. :) Feature Requests are also located under help with the option "Change Request".

Slowly getting used to the new theme and I must say, Eeems' KISS puristicy (wut) seems to pay off, it looks nice. Only the navigation bar needs a revamp. I would like if it was somewhat wider, just like on the old forums.
If that's added, I'll be very content and happy. :3

I like what I'm seeing so far. The current theme is more..balanced?..than some of the old themes. Also it isn't bright blue everywhere, but that might just be me :P

Best of luck getting the issues ironed out ;)

Thanks!
Wider navigation bars don't work well on mobile devices, or computers with lower resolution. Instead we have opted for a cleaner navigation interface with dropdowns for extra related options.

I should have known that you did the updates!  (With all of the grey)  ++  Overall, nice work. ;D  Does SMS allow custom HTML/CSS/JS/PHP?

BTW, I'm not sure if someone has already covered this, but will "karma" be restored?  For instance, is there a log with all of the karma in it from the last SMF version?  We could always just become a socialist component...  :P

We do have a log, and I'm going to see if I can import the log in tonight. I have finally implemented something that will allow you to upvote specific posts and there have been some other improvements on the Karma system. You can only rate people once every 10 minutes in order to keep people from spamming. When you do you have the option of giving a description on why you did in order to help people understand why you like/dislike their posts.

You might want to reword the prompt - sounds pretty intimidating.   ::)

Nice...
 When I saw different GUI here I was thinking, that omnimaga site is broken. So it is not broken, but it is an upgrade.
Any chance to switch back to the original design ?

I like the simplicity and clean looks of the new design. Gives the site a more "serious" touch. But I miss the news roll and the "recent posts" list on the hp. Especially with the removing the news roll omni kinda shoots itself in the leg, because if you're not logged in, you basically have no means of telling what this site is about.

Btw I didn't receive a notification either.
