New Look

Postby Jermaine Palmer » Thu Jul 16, 2015 10:53 pm

Trying out a new style on the forum. This should work better, especially on mobile devices. Aesthetically it could probably look a bit better. Any feedback appreciated. Thanks!

Where does it appear when you get a pm?

You can also select to have a pop up notification when you get a pm. That is in board preferences.

The page seems to load a bit faster and it looks decent enough :)

Will take a bit of getting used to. The posts being on the left and the avatars etc being on the right is taking some getting used to but that's only me I presume. If I was to have any real complaints it would be that there's not enough red on the theme. Good job, though.

JP, good stuff on the change. Working well IMO.

Any chance of changing the pic that's at the top of each page? It's been there a long time, something different if possible.

I can design a banner for the top of the page if you tell me width x height.

Thanks Ciarán, that would be great. 1024 x 256 is what I use for the homepage so that would be fine. I can scale it down for the forum as necessary.

NS - that actually is a new banner, I improved the image slightly from the old one, but I didn't have too many photos to work from, so just had to use what was available.

I've found the new layout much better to use on the computer but less mobile friendly than the previous one. For instance, on the mobile version (for me anyway), it just lists the forums and highlights in red if there's been a new post, but doesn't say who the latest poster is until you go into the actual thread and read the post.
