SFC Test Forums

Postby Moogie » Wed Jan 12 2011 4:34pm

Well, a handful of you may have spotted this topic earlier, which I hastily took down when I found I'd accidentally buggered up the test forums and had overwritten the good backups. Bugger!

Anyway, after a few hours work I'm back at where I was.

For those of you who haven't read BMD, I've been working on a new version of the forums, complete with the new SFC design (well, something close to it - may change a bit when I do the main site, but there was no point trying to duplicate the current design only to change it in a few months!).

Beware, the new forums will take a bit of getting used to - but I have tried to make some things look a bit familiar. There are areas as yet unfinished as detailed in my post there:

http://phpbbtest.shiningforcecentral.co ... 17&t=18178

Main page:
http://phpbbtest.shiningforcecentral.com/

By all means post your feedback/crits/bug reports etc here or on the topic there. Have a look around, let me know what I need to do that's not already on my list!

Thankies :D

Looking really nice. I take it the generic phpbb no unread posts/new posts icon is going to be changed to something more shining-like?

My main quibble is the fact that hovering over any of the sub-forums brings up the title "no unread posts" which keeps flashing up. Not really a problem, just very annoying :p

Kinda like my brother. Although not as fat

Yeah, it's why I like to steal other people's themes. They've already done the work :p

Could you sort out the problem of my brother as well? :p

Looking good so far. I do have a suggestion though,

I've shifted back and forth between the current and test board, and the test board definitely seems harsher to view, for my eyes anyway. I think the reason is the amount of white that seems prevalent.

The current boards have that blue rivet style texture surrounding them which seems to prevent the glare. I wonder if you intended to put a darker coloured background in, or the option for it?

Couple other things i spotted on my brief test:

Spoiler tags don't work yet

Quotes seem to possess no discernable difference to actual post content. I can't see a box around them, and the font is the same as the default, though Lord Oddeye Sama says he can. Not quite sure what's up there.

EDIT: ignore me. i was looking at current posts, and didn't consider that old posts would probably not possess the new formats. duh... :shifty:

Wow you've put a ton of work into this. Do you need help with/want to delegate anything else Moogie? I know my exploits into sorting the passwords out might not have gone quite so well (who'da thunk they'd have already done it :blush:) but I've kinda spurned this on, so may as well make myself useful.

--EDIT--

Now there's something I could help with. I could add some extra code to the bbcode translator to cope with the spoilers and quotes and what have you from IPB.

I second this. maybe make the side the darkest value present on the very top bar of color (or somewhere in between)?

I also notice that "Hide online status" is set to automatic for everyone. Is this intentional, or probably just not looked at the settings for profiles just yet? :)

Well spotted on the white background - I did have a coloured one in before I messed up the style, but obviously forgot to put it back. I'll get on that.

BoneIdol - So sorry I forgot to message to thank you for your hard work looking into the passwords mate. Got totally carried away with working on the boards. Thanks for everything :) Perhaps you'd like to give a hand with spoilers/avatar reservations etc. I also need to figure out why the avatar gallery is displaying odd amounts of avies per row... though haven't really taken a look yet.


Hadn't seen the auto-hide setting, will check for that and disable it!

@Moogie - sure thing. My FTP still works right? I'll look into it once I've sorted some stuff. I'll start with the spoiler tags. I always love doing regular expressions. :)

Looks really good! And it's wider too, allowing for more content on the page and less overall scrolling.

Nice :)

10 posts per page makes this even less of an issue.

Ah, will need to tweak the FTP account for you as I had to change the new forum directory. Will sort that out for ya!

If you change any files can you let me know which ones so I can copy down the latest versions? Cheers! :D

Speaking of the width.

I know it wouldn't work with the images you use, but would it be able to have it like, even wider? Probably have a min-width set, but a width that follow the size of the window.

In my 1920x1080 resolution, it still looks a bit small. If it centred about 100px from the left and right of the browser window, I think that would look better for those of us with high resolutions
