Half an hour ago ( when I was first shocked by the new layout ) I was able to select an option called " MalwareTips 2016 " ( or something similar ) .
It worked then , but now it doesn't , and I can't find it again .
All I see is " Default style " and "Dark "

Does anyone know how to select the old style , and make it stick ?

Thanks for any tips :)

Malwaretips 2.0 and 2.0 dark are the old style. Just checked, I can see them in preferences.
Many thanks for that !
It is just as you say , and I have just made the change back ..... and keeping my fingers crossed that it's "sticky" .

I did actually look in Preferences , immediately before posting .....

I guess that maybe Admin were still making some changes during the period that I was searching ?

Can we go back to previous looking forum?
Answer:
Yes. Just choose Malwaretips 2.0 in Preferences.
Please note that we won't add any new features to the 2016 themes, and once we will move to Xenforo 2.0 we will most likely abandon completely these old themes.
We made this new theme look and feel similar to the old one, so if you use it for a few days, I'm sure you'll like it.

Already liking it.
I like it too. Just few adjustments needed, already suggested by users here.

The new theme is not user-friendly at all. I can't seem to get used to it and I don't understand what sections to post in.

Jack please return to 2016 theme (MalwareTips 6102) as default, my eyes are praying for..

MalwareTips 6102 - This was the 2016 theme for the MalwareTips Community

- then I have problem with the persistence of the style cookie after restart of many of my browsers ..

I copy/paste here the data of my cookie:

Name: xf_style_id
Content: ..... hmm is secure to paste this content?..
Domain: malwaretips.com
Path: /
Send for: Secure connections only
Accessible to script: Yes
Created: Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 3:51:04 PM
Expires: Sunday, November 11, 2018 at 3:51:04 PM

So this nice cookie expires after 1 day only, horrible, make it persistent if possible, please...

... but if we have to stay as it is with the 2017 theme, it doesn't matter anyway, because we have the possibility to change the theme in 'Style Chooser' fortunately, then it's OK.!(y)

My Windows works much better, no more "swimming" of the fan speed!
I cleaned my fan from dust, with brush and vacuum cleaner working together.

With MalwareTips 6102 theme I have CPU load +/- 50%, and with the default style: +/- 0% - 12%... - with clean fan.
