...Is someone specifically dedicated to working on the forums, because there are several issues that I see that a good coder could change or fix in a matter of minutes. I know because I’ve made such changes to forum software myself before.

The programers are switching between the forums and store.

I understand that, however, if they has one person whose job was to concentrate on the forums, much of the issues could be taken care of in a day or so at most.

I totally agree. Having to go to the last page to see new posts, is a pain.

The forums are giving me a headache… too bright white background or something… the new store?... well as long as the $1.00 products keep coming I will continue to declare the missile store launch by Daz Leader a raving success!!!!

Having been a freelance web admin for myself and others for over 10 years, I couldn’t agree more.

Use the View New Posts link at the top of the forums in the mean time. Those are listed in chronological order, although it does show posts from all sections of the forum.

I don’t believe that this statement is accurate.  Given what I know about Magento (and you yourself can learn by visiting their website) the store and the forums are tightly tied together.  You cannot significantly change one without affecting the other. 

As to the color issue, if you use FF or Chrome you can quickly fix the issue as demonstrate in this post -> http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewreply/646/

Sorry IE users, I don’t know of a CSS override plugin for IE.

This is why single solutions are a pain in the rear. Get good store software, then good forums, and integrate them as necessary.
