Windows8 tab was added

John (?) added a Windows8 tab on top of the forum page. That is nice. But in the Windows8 forum I did not find a Windows7 tab to get back. Looks like a one way trip - LOL.

LOL!

Moving up a Windows version usually is a one way trip, Wolfgang (unless, in my case, it was XP to Vista where I found a way back until Win 7 came out).

Yeah, that's too easy. I was looking for the "elegant" solution.

These don't appear on all skins. Is there any way these sort of changes can automatically be implemented on the other skins, or do they have to be manually done on each one? I know we've had this sort of thing before, with some changes/modifications appearing in some skins but not others.

It has to be done manually on every skin

That is a pain.

I think that the best way to implement changes would be to make them to the forum default skins, and then, depending on the feedback, decide on whether to keep them and rollout to the other skins or to scrap them.

That's generally what I do.
