NOTICE to all users:
You may notice some images are missing and now look like:

Where possible, staff will fix this and amend the issue. However this is due to HTTP being served on a HTTPS page, so please link your images with https where possible.

@katos very nice thread! As well as you're right none of this would be possible without all the wonderful members on Forum Authority. 

The new mobile menu has now been implemented. However within the week to come I will be tweaking this slightly. Improved responsiveness is also yet to come, I will hopefully be expanding on this alongside the menu. Last but not least I will be implementing some new features and design elements so stay tuned!
If you need assistance with anything, feel free to message me.

I am NOT a robot or am I?
