All that's missing is too a prominent link to the forum in More on Ableton.com / More from Ableton section, just to the right of Making Music, that is good because there's just a blank...
yes, I am already outside :arrow:

Well apart from that the new forum is pleasant, more beautiful and readable, good font size now, airy like the graphic interface of Live, all this will help to know and appreciate the software. The white is a little raw in the evening, I would see an adjustable background tint like Live: light, mid light , mid dark, dark.
Last Ableton Live for progressive psytrance, I hope for life.
I recommand the quite or hot pearls hunt in the https://www.psyshop.com CDs seller database (to plan aspirine).

How about keeping white bordering the sides but incorporating the nice lighter grey suggested above for the the text frame! boom!

There is always the contrast control on the monitors though :wink:

Please give us a dark theme, the white is too much for eyes which work all day in front of the monitor.

I've got one coming soon if you need it, if not check out this link viewtopic.php?p=1754087#p1754087
for my current day-skin which is slightly less painful than Black and White.
Coming soon to an eyeball near you!

Haha, I've been making it bearable with a tweaked version of one of your styles/skins since the last global theme change to the salmon/pink.

Worked it into a Centercode theme for beta testing too! Can't thank you enough for posting these mods :)

ironically this change to an eyeball-searing black-on-white theme coincided with me finally achieving almost 100% dark mode on the rest of my computer.

apart from burning out my already-ravaged retinas, the forum is a lot better though!

Is there any chance of exposing the New Posts / Your Posts links outside of the dropdown?
they are some of the most used links for me, and not really well placed inside that little menu.

Yep, we've already raised this some time ago and hopefully it'll happen at some point.
