Ralf mentioned something in another thread about one of the problems with a forum being the constant download of the website images...so I set out to make a Lite version of the website.
Its still got the same flavor as the original layout, but it uses less images and smaller versions of the existing images.
Original default theme: 657k (not including text of the page/posts, and attached images)
Lite version theme: 326k (not including text of the page/posts, and attached images)
The new lite version is not default...you must go to yor profile (profile link in top menu) and scroll down to Board Style, and change it to CartographerLite.
If you have any questions or problems, please contact me.
