Thanks Cliff for updating. I am intermittently getting this error when I click on pages. Then I will click my browser back button and then click the same page again and it will load just fine. I'm using Chrome desktop.

Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Twig_Error_Loader' with message 'There are no registered paths for namespace "anavaro_postlove" in "overall_header.html" at line 69.' in /home/content/15/11891115/html/VikingsMessageBoard/public_html/vendor/twig/twig/lib/Twig/Loader/Filesystem.php:209 Stack trace: #0 /home/content/15/11891115/html/VikingsMessageBoard/public_html/phpbb/template/twig/loader.php(135): Twig_Loader_Filesystem->findTemplate('@anavaro_postlo...') #1 /home/content/15/11891115/html/VikingsMessageBoard/public_html/vendor/twig/twig/lib/Twig/Loader/Filesystem.php(150): phpbb\template\twig\loader->findTemplate('@anavaro_postlo...') #2 /home/content/15/11891115/html/VikingsMessageBoard/public_html/vendor/twig/twig/lib/Twig/Environment.php(330): Twig_Loader_Filesystem->getCacheKey('@anavaro_postlo...') #3 /home/content/15/11891115/html/VikingsMessageBoard/public_html/vendor/twig/twig/lib/Twig/Environment.php(424): Twig_Environment->getTemplateClass('@anavaro_postlo...') #4 /home/content/15/11891115/html/VikingsMessageBoa in /home/content/15/11891115/html/VikingsMessageBoard/public_html/vendor/twig/twig/lib/Twig/Loader/Filesystem.php on line 209
Hey there, Pete.

If you hold down CTRL and hit refresh on pages that give you that it should be worked out. Let me know if not.

I tried to implement the "like" system a bit ago but it apparently wasn't ready and broke things a bit.

Cliff, your last line looks like an autocorrect gone amuck... What were you trying to say?

Hey Cliff, if you want some assist with the CSS for other layouts let me know. I'm not great by any means but in the event you need some help.

I may take you up on that. I'd be nice to have 2-3 different layouts to choose from.

Currently I'm trying to get some new core functionality set up. Namely the "like" functionality. Then I might look into getting a chat room set up for game day chatting. Still have mixed feelings about that.

Make it green and gold and it's an act of war.

Just wanted to say that this is the first chance I've gotten to look at the new layout with my phone. BIG improvement! IMHO, no need for Tapatalk support with the new format.

I like the look. It's a nice upgrade and a lot easier to read. Now we just need to add Cris Carter to the banner, and we'll have a finished product.

Is there a way to disable the smilies when you reply? I notice it says:

Smilies are ON

Thought maybe we could turn it off or is that a board wide thing?

User control panel >> board preferences >> edit display settings >> display smilies as images.

That "yellow" is viking gold I'll have you know!

The green is just cause that's what we've always had but good catch, I'll have to change that.

This.

VMB's homepage looks pretty darn neat on mobile now. Not bad, Cliff. Not bad! :smilevike:

Also, Tapatalk sucks and really takes away a lot of what makes message boards like these neat. Surprised people use it. I got it the other day to see what my board looked like with it. Got rid of it in less than a few minutes. I hated it. lol. I think most boards/sites are compatible with smartphones, so not sure why people would use Tapatalk. No no no...

Thanks a lot! Web design isn't my specialty but I'm fairly proud of how it turned out.

I'm glad you like it! Mobile still needs a touch of work but I think it's coming along.

Tapatalk was really the only option while the message board was on the old version of the software. It wasn't mobile friendly at all. To be fair though, it came out before surfing on mobile got so big ...
