New layout?
« on: December 06, 2004, 04:23:21 PM »

I took the new SMF default theme and altered it to match our old images and such. Do you like it? Hate it? Don't care? Wanna make new buttons for me? Post here, or PM me, or email me.

If the feedback's good and/or I have time, I'll be redoing all the themes to match the overall layout.

I think it's fine.  There doesn't seem to be much difference, functionally, that I can see as of yet.  Of course, I've only been seeing it for a few minutes.  I like the 'Show Unread Posts Since Last Visit" button.  That's really nice.  Otherwise, I have no objections to it.

Edit:  Just to add a bit more now that I've looked at it more.  I do think that the top seems less cluttered than it used to, which is nice.  The boxes add to that alot.  On the whole, it feels less cluttered and less crowded, but that could be the settings on my PC.  Either way, nice job, Ping!

Coolio, Ping. I like how you decided to keep our old theme instead of going with the black.

What kind of buttons do you need? I might be able to help out.

I'm trying to decide if it's just me, or if it's faster. I think it's faster. But I'm not sure.

I'd say it's definitely faster, Ping.

Well, I'm notoriously bad at adjusting to changes, so ... :P

That said, I think it's quite cool. The top looks a bit cluttered with all the boxes, but I found that little button that hides it, so it's all good. Plus the new features look nifty. :)

I like being able to shrink the top, too. :)

Morrin, what do you mean by messed?

Incidentally, did you change the font? It looks more ... squished ... now.

Or am I just imagining things?

I didn't change it on purpose. I'll look into it once I get to work. :)

Edit: Yep, it was a different primary font. Is this better? :)

I, er, didn't notice the difference. But, okay. ^_^

Out of curiousity, where did the link to the house cup points go? It used to be right up there on top, and now it's gone.

Yeah, I don't notice a significant difference in the font size, either.  Might be your PC settings, Xan.

Could be. But it's back to normal now, and I didn't change anything, so ... must've been the board. Thanks, Ping! :)

It was a slightly different font. Not a huge deal, but enough that some people would notice. Like Xan. :)

Added the links back. I realize they look ugly. I'll try and fix that eventually.
