New Theme
« on: June 15, 2017, 02:49:15 am »
To go with the new server we have a new look.

I've had my eye on this theme for a while and like it's clean look and layout. I've modded it to add some of the features we had with the old theme.

I felt it was time for a change and this is nice and responsive.

On the main forum page it will show the avatar of the person who last posted in the board. The icons are nicer than the old ones I think, and links are easier to see and use.

See what you all think.

The options or actions for a thread are in the blue drop down now. As shown.

CTRL + F5 will do a hard refresh if things look odd.

I like the new theme and "feel" of the site. It is definitely a lot faster with responses and postings. (even here across the big pond!).;)

Good job and I for one certainly appreciate your hard work during these past many days.

Cheers!

Nice facelift... really freshened the site up...

The login box that appears on the right panel/ boarder above recent topics kept giving a time out error, though the main login (top left) let me straight in.

Main page still slow (because of links to chatbots I presume) but rest of site is WAY faster... nice.

It thunk... therefore it is!

Thanks all :)

Yes I think it's much better now. Very pleased with the speed 8)

I've added a few new avatars which can be chosen in your profiles - Comic, Nature, Statues, Robots and Cute.

Okay thanks, I may remove that one then, since there is the one at the top now.

Yes, it's still trying to draw the content from the old server at the moment. Hopefully it will sort itself out soon.

Thanks SB :)

The home page has kicked in now for me, I think that should be most of it done now.

 You've done a cracking job there Freddy.

It's the speed of the site that stands out to me, ultra quick now on the SSD :bouncy:

Also I had a few small compatibility problems using Edge with the old site, they seem to have completely gone now.  O0

Chrome and Edge users - Have any of you chaps got oval avatars displaying in the topics ?

Also do you have the members badges off center ?

For better understanding of what I mean please check the attachment.

Thanks for your time  :)

Nope...sorry mate. Seems that it's just yours. Then again, a few of your close friends said you've been a bit off for years! Oops!! I meant, your avatar thing.

Maybe you could run for President and reside in the ...what else...Oval Office!  :2funny:

OK...I'll stop for now...you know it's all in good fun Data! (I hope).;)

Here is a screen cap of your avatar taken with Chrome. Edge also had the same result. (no issues).

I like the new theme very much.

However, I seem to be experiencing an error on login:

An Error Has Occurred!

Okay I have made some alterations.

The button up top now leads to the reliable login page mentioned above, which in addition allows you to choose session length.

Let me know if this is working ok or not please :)
