I agree with sal, it would be nice that the color or style of links were more emphasised.

(both in default and GS-style themes)

Yeah I have to add some classes to target post links specifically.
Also the time stamps need to be in the same place, preferably at top since profile panels vary in size.
Code boxes need styling.

This theme really does suck from all ux aspects.
Makes wonder what someone was thinking when they made it.

I see.

IMO the link style is the main issue right now. I sometimes really don't notice them (and it seems I'm not the only one, so it's not my monitor ;-))

However the only quick and easy fix I can think of is underlining all forum links, changing to:

a:link {
color: #333333;
text-decoration: underline;
}

If it's that bad, why not use another theme?

You cant use another theme, themes only change css.
I hate underlined links, lol

Haha, I tried to only change colors (with FF web develover) but I wasn't able to, so I tried with underlining...

This theme is now in settings under style as -getsimple in your profile.
We can make it default later after i finish tweaking and testing browsers.

Some changes to match the old theme.
It is much more minimal now, easier to read through post to post as before.

I will have to work on the category pages now, so I apologize for its lack of rows for now.

I guess i have to take those stars out again, what other template stuff did you modify, it seems mine are inherited from default but still make new copies i guess when i touch them.

I might have to redo some changes you already have for this template.

I also fixed up the resets.
Some of the stuff that messed up id coming from GSs reset css.

So lists should display properly now.

I changed the admin and moderator colors to the same, old colors from the old forum.

I need this theme tested on all browsers people use.
and mobiles.

When we get enough oks, we will make it the global default.

Thanks guys. Tell your friends.

Tested good on Firefox, chrome, IE9M

Looking good in FF16, IE8.

I suggest you change the width down to 960px (for 1024px displays).
Reply

hmm I thought it used to be fluid down to that, is the other theme like that ?
I didn't specifically change anything width related.

Could you please
  • (programmatically) remove the =* from
      and the in older/all posts - that way lists in older posts will display more nicely
    • change the styles to have bullets/lists INdented.

Another vote for a slight width reduction to suit 1024px screens.

The current container div width is 1000px, which could be changed to 95%. The gssw-header is slightly more problematic, having minimum widths, fixed widths and absolute positioning. In fact, just changing the container from a fixed width would do.

As mentioned, links are almost invisible at the moment. If it came down to a choice between aesthetics and usability, I'd rather have slightly ugly usability, with underlines or contrast colour. What about text-decoration: blink? Very Web0.1. Just kidding.

A couple more suggestions (if not for xmas, maybe for the new year ;-))

- darker color for <hr>'s (bbcode [ hr ])
- smaller font for signatures (with punbb it was that way)
Reply
#48
Ah good catch on the HR, it was still color for the old theme, now its invisible.

I need to add margins to the code and quote blocks also.

Well, I hope you'll at least use a more contrasting color like the orange to distinguish links at least.

Another one, Shawn:
I suggest you change this:

Code:
.trow2, .trow1 {
    background-color:#F1F1F1 !important;
}

by this:

Code:
.trow1 {
    background-color:#F8F8F8 !important;
}
.trow2 {
    background-color:#F1F1F1 !important;
}

in /forums/cache/themes/theme3/getsimple.css

It was this way in punbb (not sure if the same colors, but more or less...)
