I noticed that too.  Sometimes the forum forgets your settings.  I just had to change mine back so it's readable.

  • Click on 'profile' near the top
  • Then on the left-hand side click 'Look and Layout Preferences'
  • Then to the right of "Current Theme", click 'change'
    ... I like the SMF Default Theme, but that's up to you
    • Then click 'save'

It is a new theme, that better reflects the overall theme of the avast websites.

The new, default one is fixed width.

Go to Profile --> Look and layout Preferences --> change the theme to the AV6 evang. (Variable width version of the new one)

Got online midday today and come here to find the new av6 was now active as the default, which was my setting.  And I agree that it's a little too wide, and that the "evang" version fits much better. I'm running a desktop at 800x600 (yes, still, for better readability), if that makes a diff.

Its a new forum theme and believe me we who tried it said there would be complaints with the fixed width.

So much so that there was another theme crafted for variable width, AV6 evang, now I don't know if this theme is available in the user Profile, Look and Layout Preferences, Check the current theme, it will probably say Forum Default. Click the (change) link and see if the AV6 evang theme is available, that has a variable width.

I actually like the new default theme.   I agree that the print is smaller but with a FF addon and a couple of clicks of the mouse I can get the page size just the way I want it.  Looks great to me :)

If you changed to the AV6 Evang theme you wouldn't need the add on.

Thanks for the tip I will try it.  However I would still need the addon for other websites.

Oh, so they screwed up the forum appearance on purpose huh?  ;D

 ::)  :o  Just kidding.  But I prefer the old style for old eyes.  Glad they have the option for forum layout.

Can somebody please tell me how i get it back to exactly to how it was before including having the opening page full width
I really don't want the new version
Or if you want it in a language that everybody understands,It is bloody awful

Not sure what your setup was before as there have always been choices, but look at the my post above (2nd post) for step by step instructions.

Hope this helps.

I just had the standard setting,which i quite liked
I didn't realize you could change it.
So what i want is that.Full width on the opening page and have my login details already in the boxes.
