Latest news about the site
« on: July 13, 2011, 04:30:56 AM »
The site has really been overhauled now and is cleaner than it has been since it was first created.  The new theme is our own but I have used a colour scheme from one created by someone else.  Now that the hard part is done, a lot of other things can be included like possibly some arcade games although, I wouldn't install many.

We'll keep the members posted about changes in this thread, and of course you can use the error reporting ones for any issues you encounter.

Question: So this is the permanent layout for the site then?

Yes this is the "layout", as it has the replies on the right as we used to have and I have arranged all the other elements to be similar to what we had previously, and the rest is just creative licence.

Personally I like it, and as I have little time and even less for unpaid work, I am happy now start rebuilding all the other custom elements we (all) wanted and included in our previous installation.

Of course, if christ wants to design and build a theme compatible with this version of SMF, I'll add it and enable an option for members to switch to it.

Omnipotence is OK and all, but showing off is frowned upon.

You could always take your time, that may make it less awe-inspiring.

This is really cool layout.

I hope not, it's horrible.

I love the new look.  I think it's the best looking forum ever.

I have fixed the issue with the images not resizing properly, and now anything over 780px will be viewed at that. Full size view should also open in a new window.

The always-uncensored feature of some boards is now back, which to my knowledge is "The Darkside" and "Adults only".  So beware the colourful language in those if you do use the word censoring option.

New button in the strip above that appears with the letters "OT". It's used like this:

[ot]It's raining here in blighty, you know..[/ot]

Better off the other way round, so you can flag a post that is actually on topic.

... at least where my posts are concerned.

More like: "Never a dull second" - but that would just be nads.
