New Theme - Testers Required
#1
Hi Everyone:  I am working on putting together a new theme for the site that will fix some issues that we're currently experiencing.  One of the biggest issues is that over the years we've customized the current theme adding a number of site specific features.

I'm hoping to have a handful of users volunteer to use the new theme for a week or so and give me some feedback, letting me know what works and doesn't.

If you're interested in doing this, please send me a PM.

Thanks!

Twitter quotes don't seem to display correctly for me with the new theme:

   

Still, all the things that DO work make it much a better choice.

Could it have to do with removing the last bit of “script” code, which I thought we had to do to each post?

Hmmm ... I have to admit that I don't know, never having posted a Twitter link!

Are you saying that the post above had it removed? Do you have an example of where it was NOT removed?

I believe it's an HTML issue. Working on it.

If you would like to test the new theme please PM me

No, I'm saying that our standard practice is when twitter generates the embed code, you have to delete the last lines which say "Script" in them.  Otherwise something happens.
