New Forum Theme

Post by Elvenbane » Tue Nov 25, 2008 4:56 pm

Trying out a new theme for the forums, let me know if you notice any sections of the site breaking as a result.

Known Issues:
Album navigation images missing

You always vote sexy. Dammit, Zeph, be original for once!

But yeah, the new look for the sight takes a bit of getting used to, but I vote sexy on it too.

different, but much more streamlined. Have to play around with it and see if I can break it :P

Though I do think we need some more graphics on the front page, or maybe have a graphical front page linking into what you've built now. Easy for me to say when I'm not doing the code, but just my .02.

The font on the header is lame.

Even after clearing my cache it still tells me there are 25 new messages but I only see 3.

That's not broken (I don't think). Its prob showing you that there are new posts, but ones that you don't have forum access for.

That's always been an issue, Dzam - the new post count is not always accurate. For me, closing my browser and then reloading the site always resets my new post search. If you're talking about private messages, I don't have any ideas there.

As for the new skin, it's very pretty looking, although the fonts do take some getting used to. For example, the default color of hyperlinks is very similar to the default font color, making it hard to tell where links are.

Otherwise, a skin is a skin; it's the content that matters to me. :-)
