"Return to this topic" is also checked by default now.

Somehow I missed that when you first asked - that's something that you could set up individually, in your own forum profile.

O yes, I see it now.

----------

The users icons have disappeared.

----------

The login controls on the main page were more convenient than on a popup, to my taste.

What do you mean by users icon?
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

In the threads, left of the posts, under the username. I positively remember there were icons (avatars?) there three days ago. Only Mitch displays one presently.

Some users had them, some not. One can add an avatar in the profile, one can configure the forum to display/not display user avatars.

Avatars shouldn't have been affected unless you are looking at the mobile version with the new theme. Currently, only guests can see the new theme and new members since last week. Unless you specifically changed your theme default in your forum profile section.

I'll release another beta test for regular members after I fix up the items mentioned so far and other issues I've caught along the way.

I'm an old member and changed no setting. I see only Mitch's avatar, whether logged in or not. PC, Win XP, Firefox 52. Screenshot of my settings is appended.

True, I see Borek's avatar too. So at least two, but not many more.

I append a screenshot of the settings of my avatar in my profile. I could download the picture from its address at Chemicalforums.

The image downloads from both http://www.chemicalforums... and https://www.chemicalforums...
My avatar is stored in a thread of Chemicalforums, but other users supposedly store theirs elsewhere and I don't see them neither, so it shouldn't be a matter of storage location.

Strange, even avatar stored at CF server is loaded through a proxy, I wonder if that's not (somehow) a reason behind.

Hi Enthalpy. I fixed your avatar. Users will just have to reupload it in their profiles moving forward.

This is my first impression of the unlogged in pages.
I am using Google Chrome.
So I looked over the signon page before signing on.
Caveat, I do not have a good memory of what the old page looked like.

There is no date and time anywhere on the screen including none at the top of page.

There are 3 icons at the top that do show any mouse hover message.
They do go to search, logon, and register.
They appear to be redundant to the 4 buttons just below said icons.

I clicked on

at the page top and it took me to

I look at a few of the subforum links and they seem to go where they should.

I can not remember but I thought the old screen had advertisements
The new screen does not.
