New Shiny Forum Theme

Postby stretch on Fri Apr 17, 2015 8:47 pm

Due to the current being around for some time i've decided to add a new one. Although it works the same way as the old one it has a cleaner/better layout.

You are welceome to continue using the current 'Fog Blue' theme but it will no longer be 'Supported' and gain any extra features I have planned in the coming months. It's currently a work in progress but comments welcome.

To access the new theme

Click 'User Control Panel' in the top left corner

Click 'Board Preferences'

Under the header 'My Board Style' click the drop down box and select 'Fog Shiny'

Shiny :D

Only things I will comment on is the disappearance of the smiley menu (I am thinking this is a work in progress). Also the page doesn't fill the full width of my screen (Laptop and Desktop). Instead it sits in the middle only using half the width (Using Chrome). Works fine on my mobile. Perhaps also a few more colours to break things up. At the moment it is very white which after a while gets a bit tiring to look at.

Great potential though and well done. I know how difficult it is getting these things working in the first place.

Thanks for the comments, Yes i'll look at the smiley menu, the theme is designed not to be full width so it's personal preference between this and the old one. If the layout didn't change significantly it would have been pointless changing it at all. I'm experimenting with colours but then again the old one didn't have many lol.

Cool beans. Width is just one of those things. In fairness it is no smaller in width than Facebook's. I think it is just that everything is white so looks a little lost.

The only reason I suggest some more colour is that amount of white can cause eye strain really quickly ... well it does to me :)
