Forum style!

#1

Post by Dusk » Wed Apr 06, 2016 10:09 pm

Yeah so the green and purple Zandronum forum style is back in case someone hasn't noticed.

This hasn't been without a good bunch of glitches all around, so if you find something that totally shouldn't be like how it is, then report here and I'll take a look when I have the time!

Known issues:
  • Header is missing links to main page, downloads, wiki and bugtracker
  • Forms lack a background and it looks bad
  • Global settings in UCP has a broken layout and I'm kind of stumped as to why
  • The button icons look weird and I should find out how to make them not so ugly.
  • Online/offline tag hugs into the text beneath it on the profile
  • Clan and clan tag are not visible on the profile
  • Text input boxes on e.g. the send password are too short
  • Ellipsis in pagination is unreadably dark
Issues with fix pending:
  • Profile column is too wide
  • Spoiler boxes look too much like quote boxes
  • Unread topic titles doesn't always appear in bold
Spoiler: Fixed issues (Open)
  • Quote boxes are fucking broken
  • Code boxes are fucking broken
  • Page numbers are fucking broken
  • Development forum is so tall that it causes the background to repeat
  • Footer text is darker than preferable

Are you sure that the correct default forum style is applying correctly? When I first went to the forums, I was looking at the default prosilver theme and had to go into my User Control Panel to switch it to Zandronum theme.

The only limit to my freedom is the inevitable closure of the
universe, as inevitable as your own last breath. And yet,
there remains time to create, to create, and escape.

Escape will make me God.

Now everything is White for me, not green :( (I hope it's just a config)

Hello. Please fix new posts/unread posts/active topics and UCP links, they are in MENUS, menus are bad (and it wasn't like this on previous engine)

That's something to take up with forum administration. I'm only working on the style itself.

I must agree that the menus feel a little cumbersome and I may rework the heading a bit.

btw I actually tried switching to this theme and...

uuuuuuhhhhhhhh isn't 25% for nickname and avatar kinda too much?
also offline box is touching the user info.
also blurry glow on search box looks ugly IMO.

Oh, I had not noticed - Mine is the default "every forum ever made" skin at the moment.

I've just changed it, I'm noticing quotes are white text on a white background, making them illegible, just wanted to point that out. Glad it's almost back to normal, though!

Here's the fixed CSS for quote boxes. Starts in colours.css at line 485.

Code: Select all

blockquote {
    background-color: #0F0F0F;
    background-image: url("./images/quote.gif");
    border-color: #4e5f49;
}

blockquote blockquote {
    background-color: #1F1F1F;
}

blockquote blockquote blockquote {
    background-color: #2F2F2F;
}
and here's for code boxes: (colours.css line 506)

Code: Select all

.codebox {
    background-color: #000000;
    border-color: #4e5f49;
}

Quotes should be fixed. May need to clear your cache though.

At this point, all I personally think needs doing is reducing the frame around the username/avatar just a bit. Beyond that, it's quite close to the old look, but I actually like the new spin a bit. There's more purple and I dig purple.

I might have changed that at first due to having some trouble with the positioning and size of the profile column but forgot to change it back. Or something like that, I don't remember anymore. Looks like "width: auto" works now though.
