    Hi Gaz, Thanks for all that you do for us, Zroadster.org has been a great place to be since getting my Z3, I've just popped a couple of groats into the pot.

    A small update, still working through the preparation and planning. I was chatting with James the other day and he is about to make some major changes to his servers in the next month so I'll be holding off the actual upgrade till that's complete. Essentially you won't see any changes from that work, except the site should be a bit quicker. It will also be more resilient, but as the server had run without any issues or need for a reboot for over 2 years that's not a huge concern right now :)

    No, but I can go one better.

    We currently use a customisable theme called UI.X (which gives us the light and dark versions of the site). If you go to https://www.themehouse.com/xenforo/2/themes (best viewed on a desktop) you can see the list of themes they produce and have a look. I'll likely go with UI.X & UI.X Dark themes again, but I could add any of the others additionally.

    There is a demo site where you can try them all out, https://demo.themehouse.com/xf2/themes/. To change between the different themes you use the style changer in the bottom left corner of the site.

    More than happy to take suggestions from anyone who wants to have a look. There will be some customisation on top of the default to add our logo, change colours and basic layout where necessary.
