New theme available

Postby pat » Fri Mar 01, 2013 3:58 pm

I am just about done with the new theme.
for now, you can choose to use this theme or try the new one.
to access it,

1 go to the "user control panel"
2. click on "Board Preference"
3. select "ca-vintage"
4. click "submit"


I still need to adjust some things in it.

please let me know if you like it.
also, which theme you like better.

if you have ideas on anything that would make it better, please let me know
if you find anything that is not working right, please let me know.

I spent a lot of time with that theme and updates for this board.
ran into a lot of problems. but, I hope some are resolved.

please give your comment, I would apprecaite knowing everyones preference.

I'm using the new theme right now :) As for suggestions, it might just be my browser/monitor, but the white main part of the board could be wider. I'm seeing about 5-6 inches of purple on either side. But I do have a widescreen monitor, so it might just be me.

I'm using it now, too. It looks really nice. I will provide additional feedback after I've used it for a little while.

I'm on a small laptop right now and I've got like...less than 3 inches of purple on either side. I will see how it looks within the next few days on my desktop with the widescreen monitor.

I really appreciate everyones opinion. your opinions helps with improvements to this board. I tried to make it look a little cleaner.

I widen the board, is that better? I can widen it a little more if needed.

are both side bars showing up OK? I will check this on my laptop and another computer to see if it looks the same.

I think some of the fonts could be a little bigger. opinions please?

I might keep both themes where members can choose. If I can get time, I can adjust the prosilver theme. this will give members 3 options to their preference.

It is a little wider now. I can see the sidebars just fine. I agree the font could be a little bigger as well.

juska,

thank you for your help.

I will widen the board more.

I have tons of files to shuffle thru to find the coding for the fonts.
I will keep looking.

thanks again,

Now I'm seeing the new changes on my widescreen desktop. It looks good, now I'll need to check it on my other computer. Probably will be able to tonight or tomorrow. The larger font is nice. As for sidebars, I see one navigation bar on the side with "home page" "bears" and "care sheets" as well as others. No other sidebar though.

thank you unstable for your help with this board.

it is very helpful when I know other members views.

I wonder why you don't see the linkbar on the right :icon-frown:
those are my google ads

I am having a hard time getting the sidebars closer to the board.

I still would like to see the fonts look better. I will see what I can do. its not easy figuring this out.

just curious, which theme do you like better. the old one or the new one?
I tried to make this one a little cleaner looking.

I like the new one. The old one, I had to scroll a long way to get to the posts. This one, I don't. It's nice. It's weird to get used to though. And the "view unread posts" button isn't on every page.
Like I said, I like it. It's just different, and takes some getting used to, after using the same one for a couple of years.

sara,

appreciate your input.
not sure about new post link not showing other than the main board.

I am now on my laptop, the colors and font are different than my computer.
usually it has to do with the video card.

the font color is purple on my laptop, and a dark grey on my computer.
I think the font should be black.

I also noticed it looks more sloppy at the very top, where it has the links.
I would like to put that in tabs. not sure how to, I will have to research that.

please let me know if there is any thing else that I can do to make it look better.

thank you again, much appreciated.

I am loving most of the new theme except the font. It's HUGE and makes it difficult for me to read through threads. I think it should go back to being the size it was on the old theme :P

I agree. is it mostly all but in the post area?
It is difficult to figure out which font is what icon-sad
I will keep working with it.

what about the font in the post area?

appreciate your input.
