well done sir.. looks nice..
the "current thoughts" thing is great.. except it's annoying where it is lol
can it be an ajax popup at the bottom of the screen maybe where I can hid it and use the full width of the screen for the forum? it's not a big deal though
Quite a simple solution really...
Anywhere where that there are side panels, just below the forum link tree on the right handside, you should see a little square (2 if there are two panels), click it to collapse the side panel
This is also true of the arrow at the top right hand side in the header section... clicking that allows you to collapse the login area at the top.
