Great job Matt it really looks outstanding and should be the benchmark for all hockeyboards.


Only suggestion an option to turn off the right sidebar would be nice.

Is there any reason #content-main has a right margin of 180px? I don't see a sidebar, so I would have thought the content would be a little bit wider and fill #content-main-wrap.

Yes, there is a curse filter in place now.

As far as Franzen is concerned.... I wouldn't be against adding Suter/Parise to it in 10-14 days. ;)

Are you using adblock? If so, that might be the issue. (Skyscraper ads are the only thing in that column -- 160px body and allowing for a 20px margin on the left side.)

There is. The sidebar on the forum index can be toggled on/off by hovering over the column with your mouse. You'll see a black box with an "x" inside it fade into view. Click it, and the column is minimized. Want it back? Just do the same thing (hover over the right side, a black box with a "<" appears, click it to get the sidebar back.)

Ah yes, I always forget ABP actually works. I knew you wouldn't have just left gaping whitespace for no reason. ABP is now disabled on this domain to support LGW.

Thank you!

With this version I've reduced the number of ads and have tried to make them as least obtrusive as possible. A necessary evil, unfortunately, to help cover hosting costs -- and upgrades like this one!

Nice, clean looking theme Matt. The load speed is fabulous! Is there any way we can get the "Today's most popluar posts" (or something like that) back? That's where I always went to in the old them.

Thanks again,
Ken

well then it shouldn't be much of a change.

So what's the big f****** deal? :P


And thanks as always for all your hard work on the site Matt!

I just realized that when I switched computers I forgot to re-disable adblock on my browser for this site. :blushing: But it's disabled now!
