wrong log in to post!
There ya go man, I enabled all the styles in the control panel so that users can choose any of them anytime they want.Please tell me the settings for that dark theme. Or make it an option.
This Blue and Default hurts my eyes.
LOL, well I had this post typed up, saved it and realized I was logged in as another account!
The short version is, dont ever worry about hurting my feelings about design, the site or anything. I am not a designer. However, I do have almost 30 years of web development / computer programming experience and plus I have thick skin, so I love feedback.
Steve had been asking me to do this for sometime and my lack of time has prevented me form doing it until this Thanksgiving break. There are tons of reasons to upgrade like features, compatibility, security and more. You would have to go read all the docs to find out more details. but like all software, it gets updated to be better.
The dark theme was by no means permanent, just something I selected when setting it up. See its already changed this morning! And like Sheldon pointed out, if you dont like the colors or theme that is currently being displayed, just customize your own to however you like, which is another cool feature of the software!
Looking into the picture posting / journals replies, etc... Let us know here if you see anything else so we can try to improve it as we go!
The denim makes everything stand out a little bit. The problem with the order of the dates in the posts is that if you change it to the most recent first, you have to scroll down to where you've already read. If you change it to the oldest first, then you have to go back and navigate forward, sometimes several pages to get current. Seems like the pages used to be the oldest first, but only on that page. Can't recall. Oh well...Thanks, I set my browser zoom on 110 and set the look to Denim down there at bottom left, and it improved things for me quite a bit.. I'm leaving it that way for now..
Beat, I just tried to send you a private message, please let me know if it's received.someone pm me when it gets user friendly again please
oh wait there isnt a place for that .
and nothing that says im logged in or not
or even how to log in.
but its nice to see an upgrade.
kind of when someone puts ice in your red wine to chill it for you.
this sucks for me.
print is too small.
the place to click to open post has a tiny arrow i can barely find with my mouse
at the top to go to the page i want i have to erase the current number and in a tiny box type in the page i want to go to or scroll thru all the individual pages first.
the opening header is too large a pic you have to scroll down a whole page to start things.
then its a whole page of stickies to get to the fisrt thread in the list.
the avatars are way too large.
Yes, the print needs to be larger - and as an old sign painter I immediately noticed that the pale blue type does not show up well on the gray background. Not
enough contrast. The gray background is just a bad choice. Even the black type suffers on it. Nothing goes good on gray - it's neither dark nor light. Also, are we now using Eastern time on the posts, rather than the former practice? It's 10:10 in Baton Rouge, but three posts in this thread are dated later than that. Thanks for your attention and your efforts for us.
