  • New Site Design - Official Thread

    As you can all see, we have made the final transition to the new site design.

    This is the official thread for bug reports. Bugs in the design should be reported in THIS thread and THIS thread only. Stuff posted in other threads will be ignored.

    After close to 15 years and almost as many design updates, I fully realize that I can't please everyone with any design. I would respectfully ask that comments in this thread are kept as constructive as possible.

    With the amount of time I have spent working on this design, bug-fixing, and generally making myself unavailable for anything other than working on the site, I am going to repeat myself. Please try and keep comments constructive. If you choose to ignore this and go off on a whine-fest or choose to be destructive in nature with your comments, expect me to respond.... appropriately.

    That being said; I welcome any and all comments and constructive criticism as well as, of course, BUG REPORTS!

    Please read through bugs already reported before re-posting, and if possible, post an image with a snippet of the bug.

    BUG:

    Some of the DHTML drop-down menus have incorrect background colors. This will be corrected over the next 24 hours.

      Looks brilliant, frankly. Awesome work.

      Only small thing I can see that could be changed to be perfect (for me) is the reply to thread, new thread, search etc buttons orange is a bit harsh, and the white on orange seems like it'd be harder to see than black on orange. Looks great otherwise though.

            I really like the new theme. Easy on the eyes, good to read.

            I noticed one thing: In the General Discussion forum I selected the "Forums Actions" and clicked "Mark forums read" - until now this marked the currently selected forum read. Now it marks all of TG as read. Is this intended this way? I prefered the old way, only marking the currently browsed forum as read.

                  Well, when I first saw it, it wasn't my favorite, however it is quickly growing on. Either way, very good job.

                    The mark forum read works just fine for me... It will only mark read the forum I am in at the moment

                    One other thing I noticed , very minor, is the moderation tools. You can hardly see what the options are unless you highlight them.

                      Ok, my fault. I used the "Forums Actions" top left and not the "Forum tools" top right.

                        Overall I like the changes, I agree with some of the above posters that mention some of the brighter colours like the yellows and oranges are a bit too bright for me, I think keeping the colours is fine but maybe make then a bit darker shade.

                          Yeah darken the oranges and yellows, but otherwise this layout is a very welcome change to the old poop brown background.

                          Also any deleted threads are bright gray in the thread list, that's rather annoying.

                            The new design is an improvement over the old one, but:

                            1. on 17'', 4:3 aspect ratio screen with 1024x768 resolution the forum is wider than the screen so there is horizontal scroll bar at the bottom that I have to scroll to see what is far right on the screen (previous version was fitting to screen wide) – see the screen shot – TG screen shot.jpg;

                            2. "Thread Tools Search Thread Rate This Thread Display" – those buttons are to close to each other, there should be larger space between them, like "Thread Tools Search Thread Rate This Thread Display".


                            Web browser used – Firefox 4.0.



                            Just noticed in my post: "Thread Tools Search Thread Rate This Thread Display" – I did 4 spaces between every button name but it still looks like one. Why is that?

                              Great look boss! The only problem I see is the White on White in the reply box.
