Light Green on white background is indeed harder to read (compared to original)

To answer my own question, if you mouse over your user name at the top right of each forum page you'll get a bunch of options including View new posts and View unread posts.

That's what I was trying to say, but I think it was a little unclear.

You fancy now Spokes!

Nice job with the redesign, looks much nicer and I am digging the green colour scheme. Thank you for all the hard work.

Good job with the site's face lift Spokes. It's really starting to look unique. 

A few comments:
-Possibly darken the olive green color to more of a forest green to aid in readability. 
-This maybe the result of looking at the site on an iPad, but the headings for newspaper articles look abnormally large relative to the post text. 
-The mobile site doesn't seem to allow you to go to the forum index without switching to the full (desktop) web page. 
-As previously mentioned, none of the graphics in the WYSIWYG editor load.
-You may want to default to showing the full site on tablets.

All great points!  I can address most of these

When you (and others) talk about the green, is the issue when text is green, or the menu bars?

With the change of software to a much better software (IMO), the formatting of a lot of posts got thrown off, mainly text size.  This is going to take me some time as I have to go through one by one and resize it all.  

On the mobile site, you just click on the title to go to forum index.  Im not sure I can have the software differentiate between mobile phones and tablets.  If there's a way to change it in the .htaccess file, that could be an option.

Mainly the text, although some of the smaller text in the menu bars (like "Smilies" on the WYSIWYG editor) is hard to read (at least on an iPad).

You can do it with htaccess, but you'll have to constantly keep it updated with all the current tablets. This PHP class may be more useful. https://github.com/serbanghita/Mobile-Detect/
