Im getting the occasional database error, but i think these will fix themselves in time. Also a little slower than i am used to when post are posted, and liked, but again, IΒ  think itll get better in time? Maybe? lol

fix themselves in time

like find the correct database path? For example, when trying to go to the log in page, the site had database error. after a couple of minutes it worked fine.Β 

I am assuming it just needed time ot find the right path or something? A few things have been the same as this, data base connection error, but then works fine after a minute or so?

@percysgrowroom,

I see it works well, but two things:

1. it seems you've done some manipulations and the forum icons are not available, make sure the FA lib is enabled, and you don't have custom CSS affecting the icons.

2. Go to wpForo > Settings > Colors & Styles admin page and select the Green style.

@percysgrowroom,

Also, find and remove the custom css which adds the shadow, it doesn't look good with v2.0, this kind of shadow are not used anymore it's an outdated style:

@percysgrowroom,

And please remove all custom css related to the footer, you've crashed the new design of the footer:
