Have a tutorial thread.
I tentatively like the change so far, but I've noticed two major issues:
It's impossible to view a list of all posts/threads made by a user.
On certain pages the font color/background color combination makes the text unreadable unless I highlight it with my cursor.
Some more minor concerns:
Tiny ass avatars. The max size for an avatar by a forum post should be 150 x 200 at minimum. This allows people to use "portrait-style" avatars if they wish, or simply a large square avatar if they prefer without it ever taking up too much space. Tiny avatars leave zero room for creativity and uniqueness.
You can't see who visited your profile anymore.
All the public staff differentiations were removed so you don't know who does what anymore. Makes it unnecessarily difficult to find the right staff member you need to PM about an issue.
The theme just isn't that great with the new forum software. I'd recommend a complete redesign: get someone knowledgeable in art and design onboard to put together a theme with colors and images that fit well and harmonize with each other.
I'm going to hold off on forming a final opinion about this change until if/when problems I have listed, as well as problems I didn't mention but others have, are fixed.
In regards to the theme, a lot of colors and stuff got jumbled around when it transfered over. Nothing is perfect But Tyro and myself will be working on tweaking issues with it either as we see them or as you guys continue to bring them to light. So don't hesitate to let us know what looks ugly!
Oh, and before anyone asks, yes our lovely smilies will come back too.
This might be a blessing in disguise, believe it or not. From my experience with this forum software, the software messes with the image quality of avatars and makes them blurry in the topic view. When they're this tiny it's less noticeable.
I should just say, I've actually been contacted by the guys behind our site's servers and they firmly state that it's not Xenforo, it's more likely to be the images on it instead.
I dun goofed. Fiddling with it ASAP. I'll also track down that 'All Posts/Threads' by user thing too. I'm sure it's somewhere.
Okey dokey. The aim of this theme was to look just like the original as much as possible. Clearly, we have a few hundred more tweeks to go.
Everything else, I'll try and fiddle with.
Bring back Comic Sans now.
Lives which may or may not be imaginary are at stake.
It looks like that appears under the Postings tab on profiles at the bottom "Find all content by X" and "Find all threads by X" But unfortunately it looks like none of that transferred over and will only show content and threads there that happen under the new forum...
Liking the new layout, but am not active enough on this forum to really run into bugs.
Diggin' the new format!! Kinda reminds me of Zelda Dungeon forum!
I like the new design, good job to all the Bronies and Pegasisters responsbile, two thumbs up.
I like the changes, everything is more simple and organized~ ^w^
I'm not going to stop bugging you guys until you put Comic Sans back in the fonts.
So. I disappear for a few months and now... now everything is changed.
*continues to selfishly demand the return of Comic Sans*
I know you guys have a lot of stuff to do... but do my thing first.
why comic sans? It's like the plague of fonts!
One of my L2P characters uses it.
She's kinda MIA until and unless I get it back.
Also, it's a great font. It just got ruined by stupid people using it inappropriately.
Your wish has been granted.
