Spring Is Among Us!

Post  Lee on Tue Mar 27, 2012 5:21 pm

Since spring is near, I thought it would be a good idea to tweak the design to be more livelier with the colors. The grays worked fine for winter/autumn maybe, but now it's time for change!

Well I don't know. You might not like this layout. I also added border lines for the posts, both at the bottom and top.

Normally I didn't like the blues because we had it for the background and then also the post boxes, but with the post boxes being all white, with simple borders, I think it works much better then the other ones we've tried.

Layout wise, my only complaint is in some places the text is a bit too small. but I'll live with it.

You're just used to the overly huge text, which is not common in most forums. I've done my research. So this will likely call out to more potential visitors, the larger text was just too kiddish.

I mostly meant the side bar scroll thingy. But, like I said, I won't die over it :p.

Side bar scrolly thing? What? Do you mean the scroll bars? I actually disabled color functions so they would all be the same neutral and common gray/silver color they are with every site.

The announcement thing that scrolls on the side. Where it tells you who posted what recently. That's what I meant.

I'm eventually going to figure out if there is a way to add a simple black border line around that box, so it doesn't seem to meld into the whole background. The problem is that it needs coding to do that, sometimes complex.

I suppose it's something you notice when you're the one actually doing all the designing.

Right, but people often find flaws in their own work more easily then others will. Anyway waiting on forum support team to contact me back. Until then you'll have to deal with the borderless widget.

I took down the Avatar text buttons and replaced them with a more common forum button theme. Just to see if it's better or not. Sometimes having a design or forum too different is not a good thing, as members like formality.

they look fine to me. i prefer regular buttons as opposed to them being blended in the background.

I never intended for them to be blended into the background. I made the buttons and then had to change the forum's colors to a more suitable layout. When I did that, I failed to take in consideration that the button's would be the same color. I was annoyed and there was no way I could make a quick fix unless I went back into PS and redid all the buttons. It took me hours to do the first ones, I wasn't going to go through that again.

Most times you see a change with the forum it usually takes me quite some time to do. And it sucks even more when the things I do either don't work or I'm indecisive about them.

These blue buttons should work with the layout now though.
