Cool, but I plan to continue using DarkFantasy.

New forums look?

Post by Squatting Monk » Sun Oct 09, 2011 6:56 am

Whaddya think of the new theme I installed for the forums? Still working out a coupla kinks, but I think it looks good so far.

Tip: the DarkFantasy theme is still available in the User Control Panel if you hate this one.

I just saw the color while loading the forum and instantly closed the tab thinking I missclicked the bookmark. Will take a while to get used to, but I like it.

Though, if we are to change the theme, I'd love one that has a width over 800px. 1024 maybe?

I can look at widening things, but that'll require expanding some graphics. I can do it, but it'd take a while.

Awesome sounds a bit too enthusiastic, but I prefer this to the old theme. Sticking with it. :)

Code: Select all

"NetworkError: 404 Not Found - http://forum.shadowsandsilver.com/styles/WoW5thAniversary/theme/images/header-bg.jpg"
"NetworkError: 404 Not Found - http://forum.shadowsandsilver.com/styles/WoW5thAniversary/theme/images/page-bg.jpg"
EDIT: Also, add a favicon.. Maybe an S&S or just a single S in that font.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if I wanted to add custom background images in place of the ones I took out, so I left the code for it there. I guess I should comment it out though, huh?

I plan to do a favicon tonight.

Fixed the resource load error after much wailing and gnashing of teeth. The CSS part was easy. Getting it to show up was not. I thought I had to drop the theme cache and reload it, but the problem was my browser cache. After I discovered that, I had to go back and redo all my changes to the original theme to get everything position back the way it was supposed to be. Ugh.

Hey, look! I fiddled around with the dev blog to make it look more like the forums. Now they match... more.
