New theme

Postby TheOneAndOnlyRuffDuf » Wed Jun 03, 2015 3:02 pm

I'm scared...

What do you think of this new theme?

Also, I see a spot for an profile photo, but I'm not sure how to add one.

It's not my favorite style, I don't like dark designs that much and marking new topics as red seems kind of obnoxious. I recently became a big fan of we_universal, its much clearer. Then again it looks a little generic, like a wordpress site. The old style wasn't that bad after all and we where all used to it. I wonder why it was changed. Maybe the new style allows more features? Profile pics would be sweet though I guess.

I'm not a fan of the new theme. I'd love options to customize.

I also spent an inordinate amount of time trying to find where I could change my avatar, to no avail.

Hello everyone,

First and foremost, I want to apologize for not making this post sooner. By focusing on the back end, I left you all in the dark, and for that I am sorry. Please accept my sincere apologies for not reaching out to the community sooner.

As everyone has no doubt noticed, the forum theme and some functionality has changed. This is a direct result of an update to phpbb that went through yesterday, and which rendered our original template completely unusable.

I am currently working to restore some of the original functionality for admins, but in the meantime...

Regarding avatars:

- Avatars may be changed by going to: User Control Panel (under the little person-icon in the upper right) > Profile > Edit Avatar. Avatar size should be smaller than 90x90.

No problem, Isla. Thanks for telling us what's been going on.

EDIT: Also, check out my swag new avatar, guys. Aside from Isla, I think I was the first to get one. (Okay honestly I just wanted to say FIRST! in one of the few times where I could really apply it...)

A little addendum to what Isla mentioned - it also borked the "convenient" way to ban spammers and garbage, so you'll probably see a bit more spam around the boards until we get full functionality back. On the bright side, they can be reported without needing some wonky plugin work-around now, so just report and move on :)
Please do NOT reply to, or quote, spam posts. It just makes the things more bothersome to get rid of.

Yeah, I'd love to have that one-click-ban button below a users name back. That was indeed much more convenient than the current ban procedure.
