Design Change


I figured just having the standard theme (even with the bug fix) was lacking somehow and I wanted to see if the flexible box ]design detailed here would work on a skin with multiple divisions and tables like the Energy Skin. I kinda like the new look... what do you guys think?

Re: Design Change


Whoa!!! I hit the CSS limit when I tried to add the nav-bar pull down menu! Yes I know I can host the CSS file on my own host but I wanted to push it to see just how much can be done while staying totally within the official RunBoard limits.

Anyway, I did have room to put in a CSS Pull-Down Menu in the upper left corner that keeps the board design nice and simple looking emoticon...

Re: Design Change


OK, you will be seeing more changes... I asked for help on the graphics this time since all I can really do well is flat-panel stuff and Skokey is being very generous with his time to give things a more textured look... Of course this means my banner logo name graphic looks kinda bad next to professional graphic elements so I'll be working on that as well.

We added some css layout button elements here (check them out in the Proving Grounds forum under the BotY topic).

Yes I know I said I would be working on the logo but Skokey beat me to it emoticon... I like the 3d effect for the new logo and it certainly looks better with a professionals graphics in place.

Now if I can just fix the silly drop-down menu...

Re: Design Change


Thanks for the "professional" comment but I bought some Photoshop books and realized I'm just scratching the surface.
I learn the most when I have a new challenge.

I'm at work right now and using IE6. Your "links" drop down menu doesn't work in that browser.

Hmmm... It should work (I tested this in IE 5.5 when I was building it)... Thanks for the heads up though, I'll go see what MS messed up and see if there is a fix for it emoticon

Well try as I might I can not seem to discover the problem with the old css only pull-down menu so I replaced it with the tried and true nav bar.

Re: Design Change


When you submit a post and you get the "REPLY ADDED" notification, The text doesn't line up with the button which isn't centered on the page. Also, the "ADD A REPLY" button has the right side sliced off a little.

Hi, doing this part first so I can see the other part... I increased the width on the "ADD A REPLY" button and it looks right to me... are you still seeing the chop off on the right side?

Looks right to me.

The REPLY ADDED text is almost centered on the button now.

Re: Design Change


Checking the "reply added" button css... it looks like it is centered now emoticon

Checking the "post edited" button css... it looks to be centered now as well emoticon

Fixed the "yellow flash" that the separator bars were giving prior to the graphic being loaded...

Fixed the (to me) huge blank space between the boards border and the yellow bar with the "other boards links."

Did a lot of code clean-up on this board today. Man o man I didn't realise just how much this has changed from the original "Energy Skin."

It's looking real good Pastor, if you have made so many changes though does this mean you are going to release this one as a skin?

Re: Design Change


I might, but if I do I'll want to change a few more things to make it easier for someone that isn't familiar with the CSS and HTML. Right now I am really close to the limits (size wise) that Runboard has set for a board...

Changed the avatar size restrictions to a variable avatar size (with limits) instead of having the forced size limits set in the boards misc options...

I think I'll move some forums around to allow this board a greater flexibility.

Today I edited the ".user_popup" settings so they are much easier to read than they were before. emoticon
