[Fanfare]Time to announce some new themes available![/Fanfare]

 

There are currently 4 possible themes to choose from, and 3 ways to select each theme.

 

  1. In the User CP, under Edit Options.
  2. By using the drop-down list at the very bottom of the page.
  3. By following the links in this thread.

So far the available themes are (click each one to select the theme):

When more themes are created they'll be posted here.

 

Constructive comments and ideas are more than welcome.

I've seen you moved the navigation bar at the top into the upper right corner.

 

Are there any other changes.

 

The hot dog style was blinding!

The User CP link is now a menu in the User Box in the top right corner. The Community links and Quick Links menu options have been combined into this menu.

 

<---- Also, there have been some re-arrangements of the Postbit.

 

The post count is now gone, and the Location field has been moved to just below the user title (with the word 'Location:' removed). This allows people to use this field for more than just their location if they desire. One suggestion is to have a location that begins with the words 'of the' so that your user title (be it Prince, Warlord, Monarch, or whatever) becomes a part of the overall phrase.

Hot Dog looks like browsing WPC on some mind-expanding drug. It gets thoroughly my approval! :b:

Makes you wonder why Dale requested it, doesn't it...

I like it.

 

And I would like to see 'of the'

Edit your profile's location field and add it, then.

The test theme seems promising.

I think that the notices should not be at the bottom of the page though.

And where is the members list?

 

I see you took the post counts out of the side bar. :!

The notices sections is tied into the Navbar quite heavily... I'm still working on how to remove it without removing it from the top.

Arcade also appears to be inaccessible.

 

It's there... just not in the menu at the top...

 

For now, there's the link in the notices section.

 

EDIT: Added a link to the top menu. It's not perfect, but it'll do for now.

Where can I go learn about theme design? Anywhere I can test new theme ideas (using some template)? Or is this complicated coding stuff?

 

[Edit] My eyes! :nuke:

Some parts are easy... It took me about 15 seconds to create the HotDog theme. The rest of the changes have taken a couple of days to perfect. And the work is still ongoing.

 

As far as testing your own designs, I suggest you get a good HTML/CSS book, and a copy of Opera 10, and use the built-in Dragonfly tools to edit a load of pages and just experiment. The edits you make won't be permanent, but they should give you a good feel for things, and it's a great way to produce mock-ups like this.

Another new theme added:

 

The SMAC Theme :band:

 

There is one minor issue with colouring of the Rich Text Editor, but the theme is usable.

 

Tell me what you think...

Not too high contrast, very good. :b: Is it possible to change the button graphics for this theme only?

QFT. Not sure what it would look like though.

It's good. This is SMAC-Heavy that 'poly used to have, right?

Presuming the site has been designed well, it is certainly possible.

 

SMAC is my favourite theme so far, but as well as not working well with the existing pictures, it doesn't work well with my avatar

Pal, have you time (and patience) to tell me what is that HotDog thing?
