    How do I get rid of the unreadable brown and yellow? I used to have an easy on the eye blue option but can't seem to find it. The general settings page is not viewable as all the text is jumbled up.

    Thanks. :)

    I prefer the 'old style' blue background, too. The charcoal & yellow screen has too much contrast. Eye strain is bad and it's hard to tell what's new and what's old - for me at least:confused:. Once the bugs are worked out, life will be easier.

    Patience please. Once the upgrade is complete I can start the process of reestablishing the permissions and other settings.

    You may now change the settings and use the skin. From the menu at the upper right:

    settings: general settings: scroll down to skin choices and use drop down toe select vBulletin default skin

    The page is no longer scrambled but I'm not seeing the skin choices part. Sorry to be a pain.

    In the General Settings screen, it is the last item in the last box. There is a drop down where you can select the skin.

    I don't see the skin choices either. Last box in general settings is Miscellaneous Options in which there are two settings with choices: Message Editor Interface and Enhanced Attachment Uploading.

    Just thought I'd share.

    Yep, I can't find it either. I thought that it might be due to my browser software (Firefox) so I tried IE. Couldn't find it there either.

    I looked at the forum permissions and the settings are correct for letting everyone choose the skin they prefer. I have let the person doing the upgrade know, and hopefully he will look into why this is happening.

    If you have not already done so, log off and log back in. If you have the forum set up to automatically log you in each visit there might be an issue. That is just a hunch though...
