@Mart really good job with new version of the theme (especially on mobile device). I report you this bug: the buttons next to the "profile posts" one are like invisible because the words are black, I council you to change the color.Screenshot_20191022-171045.png

@Mart On mobile: the comments aren’t that great separated now (visually) . Big grey header with Ava pic followed by a big dark blue bar. Under the comment is nothing?! Edit: at least darken that small thin line underneath it.
Something looks off now, imo.

And please, can we swap that report button with the edit button?! Please. It’s possible and makes so much more sense!

edit2: the main font changed as well, right?! Just a personal opinion: I liked the old one better. Let’s see if I can change that for my design.

Gave him a red card as a precaution, dont want him to get over excited. ;) :LOL:

He has good points tho. Apart from avatar pics (where some heads are squashed horizontally or vertically on mobile) - its hard to divide posts.

Edit button is being used much more often than report, so it would be handy to have it shown in full for easy access.

Also - not a big fan of how @'ing people looks. I preferred when the name was showing in bold, instead of @'name'.

Jesus, I cant stand my moaning.. somebody give me a red card!

That’s another good point.

We’ll get there...! :)

Ok, so , the logo takes you back to the homepage again (it was never meant to not do that). Fixed the profile page links. @ing looks better. I put a slightly darker border between posts - any darker and it looked weird in my opinion.

I can change the order of the Edit / Report links but it's a template edit so I'm trying to keep them to a minimum. I'll see if I can do it as an installable add-on or something along those lines.

The font did change but that's because the one we were using 'Droid Sans' is no longer hosted on Google (we were getting errors from them and it looks like it's a paid font now).

What If some people want use old themes?
Why links changed to proxy? I mean I put imgur link but its changin like evo-web proxy. Example I need know original link to do something.
One more thing. Does evo-web give promise to never delete pics that we upload/attach here?
We don't have the old themes available any more - the ones we were using weren't completely compatible. We haven't changed anything with proxies or similar. We have image proxying set because we're on HTTPS and need to protect that, no other reason but that isn't a new setting. At the moment we have no plans to archive/delete attachments but if that ever changes I'll let everyone know in advance. They do take up space and bandwidth but we're ok for now (part of the reason for moving was for more space).

Thanks everyone for the feedback!

Links that appeared in blue before now appear as any other text. This has reduced the distinction between links and plain text. The overall work is appreciated.

Hey @Mart ,
Doesn’t the red colored page number links at the bottom of the site look off compared to the overall color scheme?! Maybe some blue-ish or grey-ish color would suit better.

Can we have those page numbers being shown on the top of the page as well please?!

And yeah, I know, it’s Sunday... ;)


Have a good one y’all!! :)

It seems off but it works better on Dark Theme. Grey and dark blue looks a little bit camouflaged combined with the dark background.

Dark/Light use different colours - on Light it's the orange that is used occasionally as part of the overall colour scheme - it's matched to the main blue. I need to tweak the page numbers anyway as they still have a gradient from somewhere. Gradients are obviously evil.

Page numbers at the top is a mobile-only view issue so no guarantees on that one! I'm starting to mess wtih add-ons, though. You'll see Edit comes before Report on desktop view now. Phase 1.

The new look is really nice, good work! :TU:

@Mart, here's some feedback in regard to the light theme:

I agree with @PRO_TOO about the page number colours, doesn't fit the overall colour scheme imo. The only different colour I see is green on the "post reply" and "post thread" buttons. Either that or dark blue/grey would fit well.

Another thing which is a bit annoying would be the line between the text of a post and the signature of the user - it's white on very light grey, i.e. almost invisible and I often have to look twice where the actual post ends.

Hope this helps. :)

@Mart , @Tom, not sure if it was mentioned before already... but would it be possible to remove the "smart link" feature? Where it is doing an inline preview of the linked content or pulling some info about the site (examples: the pastebin.com and mediafire links)
It'd be perfect, if they were again just regular underscored hyperlinks.
Thanks.

The content inlining from links ( especially long files from pastebin.com ) completely f*s up mobile devices. :( Seems to work slightly better on a computer, but it is still a hassle to scroll it away... If this can be turned off somehow, i will never complain about any other aspect of UI ever again.

I thought I’d switched it off yesterday... Can you link to an example? It might be something different to what I thought.
