Update ALL the things!

Post by Mike on Sun 26 May 2013 - 3:02

Since niceboards has changed the layout to the admin panel, it won't allow me to change certain things until I get the panel up to date, which means picking one of their themes to work with. I will try to find something that looks somewhat similar to what we have already, though ;3 Let me know what you think and I will try to accommodate it to be more comfortable.

I know it's generally a faux pas to multi-post, but for this thread, I am using it to keep you all updated on what's going on and what I plan to do in the future.

Alrighty, sounds good. I'm not completely sold on the wallpaperesque background, but I think I have it roughly how I like it for the time being. I'll fiddle with it some more tomorrow.

I don't take it the wrong way at all. It's literally the default preset to a search on "green" in the really 'meh' list of skins they give you to choose from. I just didn't have time to mess with it more, since I had work for 11 hours, today.

Unfortunately, I was unable to keep the theme I had made a while back due to changes in the admin panel, so I am using this current one as a foundation to work with, so I promise the funeral home wallpaper will leave after a while ;3

Got rid of the ugly funeralhome wallpaper and put up a random picture I found to tide us over for the time being. I'll find something that fits better once I finish addressing a few annoying bugs.

I'm going to be changing a little bit of this-n-that here-n-there, so don't panic if something disappears for a few minutes or suddenly changes. Hopefully things will be back up to snuff soon.

odd, it should be small enough. I just changed it again, so maybe that will help. Also, when you get a PM, does it correctly tell you how many PMs you have? There seems to be a bug related with PMs that I am trying to pin down.

mkay, I fixed a couple bugs, but there are still a bunch of them to iron out. I have also attached a little chatroom thing to the bottom of the home page -- test that out if you want while I try to figure out the PM bug.

Changed the formatting to a few things to make it easier to read at a glance

Changed the way the date and time is displayed to make it easier to see as well

Trying to fix a few frustrating bugs, still

Relocated the chat to the top of the homepage for the time being, but still trying to find a spot I like it resting in, better.

Re: Update ALL the things!

Post by Mike on Mon 27 May 2013 - 15:23

trying a new color scheme, made the text boxes and buttons nicer, recoded a few things, changed the css, made stuff easier to see, fixed a few things with the chat box

I have not yet finished making all the icons into the colored orbs, so the confusing ones that have a / or X through them are still there in sub forums; they will be changed.

Few bugs left still, but I have to go to work, so I will be back later tonight. Let me know what you think of things so far, and if things are easier to look at and read etc, while I am out.

Loving the space theme dude, though I admit the "/" and "X" doesn't look appealing. Oh, I also restored HMMurdock and Cody Furlong's passwords since you haven't set up the "I Forgot My Password" feature, so I'll help out with moderating forums, getting new recruits, and other things during the day while you're at work. Smile

Also, if you can, could you make Izunagi (Tigerkat) into a Mod too? He's helped me keep this forum stable over the years as our main place to keep contact, and we could always use more helping hands. ^.^

Glad you like the theme I picked. Don't worry the / and X will go away once I finish changing stuff. And yes, I can do that. I just need to re-figure out how to do that now that the admin panel is different.

edit: looks like I did it correctly, but it isn't showing him at a mod yet, so it might just take a few minutes to update/show up as it should.

:3 yeppers, no problem. As long as you do your best, I'm sure there won't be any problems.... but if there are? Your icon will permanently be a sparkling magenta vibrator with mr. potatohead parts taped to it! Very Happy


In other news, I finished upgrading the post icons to green, red, and gray buttons for posts and gray/blue icons for stickies and announcements. I think they are -much- easier to read. Let me know what you think, too.

While I edit the banners for admins and mods, I have changed your banners to something more.... enjoyable... for me at least

Alrighty then, I think we are getting to a point where I don't have to constantly update and fix things. I just finished getting the major bugs out of the way and only have a few cosmetic things to fix (have to hunt down the color of the quick reply and quote boxes down somewhere in 3k+ lines of css code xP). It's nice to stand back and see how far things have gone over the past few days :3
