    Default Skins?

    Hey Folks, new user here so go easy on me. When selecting different skins in Config/Admin/Skins what are these supposed to affect? The only thing I've noticed after selecting one is that my 'Apps' Section now looks like an equipment rack and no amount of changing "skin" changes the look of this, or puts it back to how it was initially. What am I missing?

    Skins are going to be removed soon. It has not been updated in some time.

    Welcome to the forums.

    I've long said that skins and themes are a feature you add to a product when you're low on ideas for something more meaningful. It's actually good to see this area languish.

    I have to disagree. The rack theme shows more in a quick glance than the dash board.

    Yeah, the skins are something "for the community", and we don't really think about them much anymore. That being said... #DeathToTheRackView

    #DeathToTheRackView is fine...

    But Tile views are for the birds... Especially this one...

    Web Filter, Virus Blocker, Virus Blocker Lite, Bandwidth Control...

    WTF order is this? Toddler with too much sugar? Rack had this problem too, but with that view things were grouped in a way that looked visually organized. The current UI simply makes no sense at all.

    ""for the community", and we don't really think about them much anymore." That becomes more obvious every day. And probably why Untangle will die a painful death.

    Ok, thanks for the replies. Anyway to get rid of Rackview then and go back to tiles?

    Also, any way to get my Forum Username changed? Fairly sure I didn't intend my email to be my username

    DM me your preferred name and I can change it. It is possible on the user CP but I don't remember the steps.
