    I've just logged in, at 18.50 hrs UK time, and found that the appearance of the site pages is totally different!
    Instead of the WW2 banner etc, there is a horribly plain, blue header, entitled 'Metro', and the whole 'look' is plain, lacking the normal layout.
    I'm presuming this is a temporary thing, whilst up-dates are being carried out?

    I just discovered the same thing. I had to bring it up twice thinking that I was in the wrong place.

    scroll to the bottom of the page and look to the left, you find the themes pull-down menu, select --fluid_ww2_update and all will be right with the world once a again.

    Just Horse is updating the forum soft. Also the server cache has been cleared. Therefore unexpected changings may happen. But please don't worry. All is fine.

    Dzieki Wojtku, and Dave! Just did as Dave said and got the old format back. (Phew! Was like going home to find all your furniture stolen and the walls painted...)

    Thanks Wojtek, I thought that might be the case, but wanted to check. I thought I'd found either a French underground rail time table, or the local supermarket !!

    it did look pretty ordinary. The embarrassing thing for us old geysers is that it was pretty straightforward to fix

    I was able to change to the Fluid ww2 update yesterday, but if I log out and log in again, it's back to Metro.
    When i logged in today, and tried to change to the ww2 update, it remained as Metro !

    EDIT: Once I'd posted this, it changed to the correct look !

    Terry it is a matter of cookies that are deleted when you logging out. Go to your personal settings. The link posted above in #15. In My Account option you will find General Settings. Scroll the scren down and find the line with the Forum Skin. Set the fluid_ww2_update and click Save Changes button at the bottom. With the setting , the fluid_ww2_update skin is displayed each time you logged in. Unfortunately The Metro style is still seen when you aren't logged in.

    Fortunately the bacon doesn't work with the Metro style. It could be possible if the bacon was blue. But who would like to eat blue bacon? Only a desperado methinks.
