  • New Forum Skin

    I'm currently working on a new set of forum skins.

    Since this skin already exists, I was wondering if folks wanted me to leave this here as an option when I implement the new skin - basically let people choose their own.

    Thoughts?

    Yeah, I think it would be nice to have skins to choose from.

    Welcome back! Hope you're feeling good!

      Options are always good.

        I like this one. But I think options are best.

          The new default is now in place. This "red" one.

              I like it better than before, doesn't hurt my eyes so much trying to read.

                Once I find some more time to play around with skins, I will offer what this red one replaced as an alternate, plus another one which I have not worked on at all as a third option.

                But this red one will remain as the "default" one.

                  I love it Joe. Best work yet. Especially the background and the side menu on the left. Also like to add that it is looking very sharp.

                    Indeed. The skin looks good, Joe. The only real complaint I have, is the font in the posts; I prefer Verdana, but that's just a minor, minor grievance. Everything else is ace.

                    Welcome back man, I hope you're feeling better.

                      Thanks Joe! Welcome back and hope you're feeling all right!

                      I, unlike most of the folks here, didn't find the previous forum skin objectionable. But I do like this new one as well. It'll take a few days getting used to it but it's all right.

                            I love this black and red skin!!! It's very classy, and these dark/blood colors suit a Sabbath site so well.

                            Joe, you've done a bang up job on this. Anyone who doesn't like this needs to go and register on an Elton John forum site.

                            And stay there.....Hahaha.

                              Further tweak to the forums.

                              When I bought this skin, it came with a "fixed" width. I'm not a fan of that, as it squashes the available screen real estate, leaving less room for messages. However, it was a very nice skin, so I went with it.

                              I discovered tonight that I was able to change the width from 90% to 100%, so I've made everything a bit wider now. Should make things feel a bit less "cramped".
