New Theme: Testing Grounds
« on: July 14, 2005, 02:08:45 AM »
Uriel designed this and I coded it. We both spent quite a bit of time on it. Enjoy:

http://www.skullknight.net/yabbse/index.php?theme=8

Preview: (doesn't really do it justice)



To make it your theme, go to Profile in the menu, then "Look and Layout Preferences", then change 'Current theme'.

For those users who don't like seeing all that info at the top on every page (user info, newsbox) just click this button: and it will hide.  Then click the button again to show.  Very sleek feature.

Looks good; I like the new banner.

A Question
A voice said, Look me in the stars
And tell me truly, men of earth,
If all the soul-and-body scars
Were not too much to pay for birth.

You made the "user info" box to big, so if you scroll right, theres just a big gray space.

We're still working on that problem. I don't think its the userinfo box, but that COULD be it.  I think it's the way width is calculated on some threads with images.  But thanks for the possible cure.

EDIT: I messed with the userinfo width, and it's not that.  But I did I remember why I have the userinfo box so huge. Users with very wide avatars need the extra space, so it doesnt push the other content right (or off the screen).    Still trying to isolate the problem...

I think its the news box. If you look at SMF Default Theme , theres no news box at the top-right. I would say the userinfo box is only an inch away from the board index.

I fixed that stretch problem.  It was this image in the news that threw everything off.



I'd suspected it... but now I know for sure.  So, we'll have to find a less blatant way to spread the word about Chapter / Episode

I like this theme more than the preview we got for this week's chapter...

I thought so too, didn't say it for obvious reasons of being partial to the image. One thing is sure, that theme sucks.

Well you can continue using the 2 year old, outdated theme, which is why we have 5 of them  :guts:

I don't get it.

IE: They are called episodes not chapters.

Uriel I didn't know you had....

*I struggle to stand back up due to sever injuries. I gaze over to my side and see the old friend, my yorky, "Puppy" sitting there in his loyal dog fashion. His brave soul that pushed through terrible times, defying death him self sends energy through my shattered body*

"I see now", As I make a fighting stance.

*As CNC turns to gaze upon my ruined body I shock and awe him with a fierce ballade of fighting maneuvers he has not seen since fought Walter Bennet many moons ago. After many decisive strikes to the jugular, CnC fails to speak and struggles to talk.*

"On Guard, gentlemen. On Guard." *I takes less then the moment Olivier used to vanquish the wicked Paradise Lost sending them both into an eternal quagmire of death and doom, because I know my foe is strong and will come back for more blood letting. *

Yea, first post.

*fixed to retaliate when he noticed that the gods that be punished bob with -1000 posts.*
Rather than cross them myself I bow to my worthy opponent and depart.

My enemy's body is battered and broken, and I'll have a sore throat for a while.  Seems like a good place to end...
until next time
