Poll on new theme !

Postby Chris Layton » Tue Feb 07, 2012 9:56 pm

Let me know what you think of the layout of this theme. Its a pretty big change so I would like some feed back from the regulars. I am thinking of making this the default with the old theme as a option for users.

Chris,

This theme is broken! If you press on one of the menu items like "View unanswered posts" it works but then the menu items go away.

I constantly have to go back to the previous page to get the choices. :bang:

Plus, is it just me or is the logo at the top much bigger now?

By menu do you mean these :

Board index ‹ General Discussion ‹ Chatter
Change font size
E-mail friend
Print view

User Control Panel (0 new messages) • View your posts

Garage
FAQ
Members
Logout [ Chris Layton ]


If so there might be a issue with your cache but i will double check from several browsers as the last issue was IE related.

The logo is much bigger but easy to change :) I will shrink it some tonight. Also the colors are a tad messed up ..working on making this more like the main flu page but the main FLU page is a little limited on colors to choose from :)

I use Firefox, latest build, same problem on three different PCs, three different O/S. (Win 7 home, Win 7 Pro, XP)

It's the menu that says:

* View unanswered posts • View unread posts • View new posts • View active topics

Those disappear depending on where you go.

I see that now...might be a function of the theme...I will allow use of either theme tonight so you can switch between them in your profile.

GREAT solution, we have the right to choose, how American!

Wasn't it Patrick Henry that said "Give me themes or give me death!" ?

Sorry I've been in front of computer screens too long.

Ok you can choose your theme in your profile under board preferences. I have a few new colors and a new top logo up...any feedback is appreciated :)

To do :
- New Icons
- Fix blue color on front page

I find this latest version confusing. Trying to figure out at a glance what is new posts on the main page leaves me puzzled. I liked the last version better.

You can switch themes in your profile between this theme and the old theme.

With that said I am going to be working on the icons to make them make more sense.
