    EMTLifers,

    After much work, the new look of EMTLife is live! Try it on your computer, phone, and tablet, and let us know what you think.

    I can honestly say that I received the email notification but when I came online, I actually said, "woooowwwwww". I'm not one for change, but this looks cleaner.

    Only thing I don't like is that I have to scroll to the bottom to get to the New Post button on the mobile site. That's probably my most used button. Other than that, I love the look.

    Thank you! You have no idea how many different versions we looked at before deciding on that one. I would say at least 20+ different versions.

    Interesting. My recommendation would be to log out, clear any cookies and cache, and log in again. It should look very different.

    Yeah... we're looking at a better place for it. There is a New Posts link/button toward the upper right corner, but may not be visible on smaller screens.

    Once we receive more feedback and make the final tweaks, we hope to have that button more prominent.

    Thank you for all the feedback!

    Ah, if I rotate my phone to landscape it becomes visible.

    I like the new look. On mobile, I agree with STX. Can't see the new posts button on portrait view, but can in landscape. Looks as if it may be a scaling issue as the little profile guy and the search magnifying glass are overlapping. Maybe put the new posts button as part of the drop down menu on the right of 'forums'?

    Im digging the new look. Works great on my iPhone and great on my macbook (safari). Just going to take awhile to get used to everything. Way better than the 2 column format.

    I've disabled the old theme so hopefully that helps everyone see the new one.

    How about now? Everyone should be seeing the new theme as it's the only option now.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. We'll add that to the tweak list.

    There should be one there already. You don't see it?

    I see a new posts button on the far right but in the drop-down, the only two options are 'home' and 'chat'.

    If you tap "Forums" it should drop down to display several options.
