Great work CS. Like some others, I am less sure of the colour scheme - my tired eyes find it hard to distinguish the latest posts from earlier ones that I have already read (the shades of green blob are very similar), and we seem to be missing a link to the 'latest post'.

However, I also agree that we may get used to things in time. :)

A more major concern is that there does not seem to be a way to mark all posts read - you have to go through each post in turn.

You can mark all forums read by clicking the link on the bottom left of the main page.

Agreed about the side borders. It seems like wasted space to me.


Are you using a full screen browser window? The side borders are quite small on my screen but then I don't have full screen windows

Barely readable on my chromebook, can we move to a lighter shade of grey?

Might be easier to read.

CS if you need any help updating the CSS file for the theme drop me a PM.

The size of the borders varies based on the width of the window. It's not a fixed size.

Great to see the forum up and running again! The look is quite suitable. A bit 90s, but so am I. I have noticed that the green used in buttons to signify stuff (unread posts etc) is too muted and very hard to see. Apologies if his has been mentioned already. Other than than that it seems very nice. Good job!

The edit button is in the bottom right of your posts (once they are made). Zooming the screen in will increase the text size and shrink the borders at the same time.

Interesting, they look very different to me. Deuteranomaly? (no offence intended!). Might be worth running a screenshot through a colour blindness checker, e.g. http://www.etre.com/tools/colourblindsimulator/
I know there is a Mac app for filtering your monitor to accomplish the same thing.

You mean in the thread listing? I don't remember there ever being one. What would it be for? The little page icon to the left of the thread title still goes to the first unread post, is that what you mean perhaps?

Not tried, but can't you just use a CSS settings editor that saves changes locally for a site?

To make the banner space go away just set 'padding-top:' in the wrapper div to 0px.
