New theme / style coming soon

Post by LePaul » May 30th, 2019, 12:12 am

I think it's time for a new color/theme setup...checking a few out, especially those that are mobile friendly (as the forum software already is)

So don't be surprised if you see a few new ones in testing! I'm looking forward to your feedback. I'm sensitive to what people have mentioned in the past...fonts that aren't too small, nor too big...so...fair warning :)

What happened to the blueish theme I saw yesterday,
I thought you were going to let them stay up for a while.

The template did not have the options to edit the image or even the path. I thought I could override that editing the CSS files in there, but in following up on discussions related to it, that has been a major frustration for others, too.

Here's the rub...the more I have to customize a theme, the bigger hassle it is come upgrade time.

My goal is to have a clean interface that's good on the tablets, smart phones and computer screen.

I'm not crazy about all this white real estate this theme has, but it's a variation of the stock ProSilver one.

I'm also contemplating going into a orange/black sort of color arrangement, much like the Where Nerdy Is Cool logo uses.

But...I'm open to feedback!

What if you just add a single color tone darker to this one.

Another good idea.

Colors are a challenge. While everyone can agree on some things, when you go from blue, light blue, white, dark...everyone's perception is different.

Ideally I would like the user to select a color/theme they like individually. Still looking!
