Prefered the fresher look of this board in the beginning.

Just me, I guess, but, trying to look like The Old Forum is not appealing to me much.

At the very least we should add graphics that don't claim to be the other place.

i agree! I wanted to start a contest of sorts for anyone that can draw to create a new logo for us so far that top image is temporary but Im gonna run it by Celia

we should make a similar logo that say "the transgender times"

though the new logo would have to be on a transparent background and be 590*52

We've also gone back to the old way of uploading photos.... could never get my head around.

Edit: actually, as long as I switch to mobile version, it's fine.

Actually I really like the image upload here you click the picture icon with w floppy disk in front of it to upload a picture to a third party host and it will generate a link you then hit the picture icon with a plus sign to upload that image

Otherwise you just hit the picture with the plus sign and link a picture off site using a http link

If you have the Image link you don't have to use it heck you don't even have to use the picture plus thing just type [img] [/img put a ] at the end and your picture address in the center

I liked the other look, but, I don't mind this look either.

I like that we exist at all Smile

The base font is hard to read, the kerning is all messed up.

That said, it does look better on Chrome (I'm using Firefox)

you mind uploading a picture it looks the same to me on both firefox and chrome

that said im not done with the theme the main part was getting the base set

but on that note the size of the text and the style font icons and boarders text scaling are all exactly the same as tgboards Laughing

though this hosts (forumotion) mobile settings i cant effect much hurts the mobile platform

Firefox:


Chromium:


The typefaces do look very much the same - it's the new toolbar that is particularly ugly. I'd increase the basic font size by one point across the board, or simply choose a more open humanist typeface. This, as it is, was already murder on a mobile (and of course the mobile theme throws away a lot of cool stuff).

It must be said, the screenshots are taken on my development box, which is Ubuntu. I have no idea what it looks like on Windows.

This is what buggers it up:

a.mainmenu {
   color: #105289;
   font-size: 12px;
   font-weight: 400;
  letter-spacing: -1px;
}

remove this:

#wrap {
   background-color: #fff;
   border: 1px solid #;
   margin: 0 auto;
   min-width: 768px;
   padding: 5px;
   width: 98%;
}


It works MUCH better that way.

And this is bollocks:

It looks like the signature_div class is not defined, or is otherwise missing.

This fixes it without getting rid of the dashes:


.signature_div {
overflow: hidden;
}


(I had to add the style manually)

The img tags for profile pics need work.

So it's starting to look a bit more responsive and less BDSM.

It's a tonne of work! Rather you than me, young whippersnapper! Smile

Also, the #wrap selector is using padding instead of margin. This should be changed.

Hi Rebecca,

That is fine, you carry on girl, A contest is a very good idea!! I am very pleased with your efforts.

Hi Papi! I think what it is for users like me, is that a lot of the old girls here like continuity and I think continuity is good for us all. I am sure both Rebecca and I appreciate any input put forward, so thanks for that hunny. Rebecca has made this easy to use by emulating the original and has improved things.

I do prefer this set up, (I did switch the quick reply off Rebecca, but it's not important to me), and I think she has done a very, very nice job. Celia xx

The avatars look oversized to me. Looks to me the current skin was designed for avatars of 100x100 pixels in dimension.

I love the big pictures. My bifocals are ten years old, and make it hard to see tiny faces.
