Clay,

It's looking quite good already!

All of the comments made seem pretty valid to me:
- nicknames need to be shown instead of real names
- recent topics page needs to show info like on current site
- there's no search tab
- it'd be nice if Search produced threads rather than individual pages
- sort options for sorting posts (which are not on the current forum either) would be nice

I've got a few more:
- the missing info on the recent topic page (e.g., "topic started date"is missing) is also not present on the index page of every subforum
- next to the "search tab", the tabs "new topic", "my topics", etc. are missing (maybe because I'm not logged in; although it'd be weird if that is the reason, because there is a "profile" tab)
- line spaces (empty lines between paragraphs) are not shown in posts
- it'd be nice if the Search function could also deal with phrases or AND-clauses. (If you type in on the current forum, e.g. "stropping paste", it searches on "stropping" OR "paste", which usually results in far too many unwanted search results)
- thank you's and karma's are not shown with posts
- signatures are not shown with posts

I cannot login yet to the new forum. If the web team could add the current account database, we could perhaps do some more testing.

Success with the new site! It seems to be based on Wordpress, which I like a lot better than Joomla :) .

Clay, any possibity for us to test the site as registered users? That would give us a lot more testing opportunities.
