Yes I am going to do that.

It is not working in the new style. It should work in the old ones.

Not at this time. It is not..dynamic? It isn't stretching to fit monitors like the other skins do.

I logged on to my MIL computer and mothering looks TOTALLY different them mine at home.

my layout is the 'old' layout and this one is all mod and different. like in my 'home page' everything is laid out all nice.. no more tabs...

how can i get the 'new' layout on my computer at home?

Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.

I changed to an old skin just to test it out, and can't get back to the new default?

Also, just a usability issue - I would recommend adding underlines to the breadcrumbs in the new default.

Very, very Nice color choice!
Looks beautiful with the new modern clean look.

As others have noted I too like a left sided listings on the forum instead of center justified. It's visually uncomfortable to have it center justified.

Oh, and for me, it's much easier to read with the white background, but glad there are still options for those who think it causes a glare.

Also, it has all shifted slightly, not centered anymore, but thankfully not so shifted that I have to click and drag the page over everytime I want to read.

Guessing there will be bugs for awhile.

YES YES. I like the new colors but in general this new format is much less user-friendly for me. Thread titles/lists are difficult to read through, taking mor time, and less posts seem to fit in the page and the posts are narrower. These things add more time to reading posts, and for me more time navigating and reading=less time visiting MDC. Can you widen/expand the margins of the main page, inset in the gray box, so that we can get more posts in the viewing area?

^^^^This is what happened to me.

What is a "breadcrumb" how does that work, is that like a cookie?
btw, i just love the interesting language usage and how they named all this stuff.

After a lot of trial and error, I've finally go the new format when I'm logged in. I posted about it here. :

Just a comment, this new look to mothering.com forums is kind of hard to read. I prefer the older version that had a faint line separating the questions, etc. Just my 2 cents.

The only thing that worked for me is to log out and then it asks if you want to clear cookies, i clicked on it and it took me to the new skin logged in!
I'm in the new skin now!:

I'm really liking the new format; it is always there when I sign onto MDC. But, it is not yet an option in the drop-down menu for skins. I've logged out, which supposedly took care of all cookies, numerous times, but it just doesn't want to be an option.

Oh and I know you can change skins... but this purple one (I assume its labeled "Lavender"?) is actually saying it is "Tan" on mine.

Weird glitch.

I am a bit confused about this new format. I see a lot of questions about it here but I haven't seen any answers. Is there somewhere where someone has explained or responded to the questions about the new format?

The new look is pretty, but it hurts my eyes. I tried it for a day, but I just couldn't take it anymore. I just changed back to the old skin after reading this thread and finding out how. Ahhh, life is good again. :

I finally did it : I had to clear my personal cookies to get it to the new format and I LOVE it it looks so clean and fresh and all I had to do with the brightness is turn it down on my laptop I do that anyway so it was no biggy! I think it looks so much nicer:
