Forum Theme - Visual Feedback

Post » Sat Jan 19, 2019 10:08 am

Ok all, I've purged the forum of all test threads/posts/media, and cleaned things up a bit. I'm at a stage now where I'm happy enough with the theme, and know that there are just a few small minor issues left to track down, align etc. But I'm ready to start adding proper actual content now, at no risk of it going bye bye. I've also added a new captcha system, one that's much easier to use and read than that old one that even I failed haha, so that should help sign ups.

If you could all do me a favour and let me know in this thread of anything annoying you see, be it font issues, colours, alignment and so forth, I'll get them sorted. Otherwise, its time to move onto actually adding OverDose content. Tell your friends, tell your pets, we are open for business.



Thanks!

The smilies / emoticons / emojis / whatever... Oh, and I need more of them too, to be able to fully express my wide range of feelings and emotions, you know?

You don’t have the minerals sunshine :lol:

Actually yeah, these need to be animated. I’ll have a look tomorrow or Monday, we need some more. I also need to add the template and smilie stuff to the quick editor too.

- Restored pagination to top of threads.
- Restored mod and thread tools to top of threads.
- Added pagination to topics.
- Added “edited by” for all users rather than just mods to posts.
- Changed icons on nav bar for nicer ones.
- Various sizing fixes and changes.
- Fixed post icons displaying in a jump box, they now display correclty on both mobile and desktop.
- Changed font size to be 1.25em rather than 1.5em, as it was too big, and looked awful in mobile aslo.

Forums are looking swish old bean. Well done, sterling effort, marvellous, splendid, etc.

With the implementation of Captcha..... does this mean there'll be no more spam bot sign ups? I recall we were riddled with them when we moved over to phpbb on the old domain. Mind you, technology has moved on since then.....

Also, add a button at the top (with a cute little home icon) so that people can go straight to the main website if they want.

There’s a home icon st the bottom of every page that does that.

As for spam bots, nothing is 100% fool proof, but this method is quite good yeah.
