I think they just wanted to ensure basic functionality before fiddling with the gui.

Well most people with corporate laptops don't have the admin rights to them - so I don't think they/we can install stylish.

I can't even download Chrome, so I'm stuck with this :uhoh:

That's what Kasey Keller says. But then more changes were expected before the change. The new administration wants the forum to be hassle free though so I hope any changes to the look are made soon...

I'm less confident that things will be fixed on the technical side but much more confident the forum will still exist in 5 years than I was recently.

Really thought it was going to be binned a few weeks back.

Chaps :toppa:

Glad you are liking the changes. I've made a few more changes to try and bring it as in line with the old site. Here are this mornings screenshots.

They include...smaller thread titles, pagination like the old place and a complete rework of the CSS so if people want to change something themselves they know where to look as i'e commented the areas in. Let me know if you all think these should go into the actual style for people to update to!

It's a free to use forum with no advertising, with a shower of reprobates and scoundrels with a penchant for libel and to the bone humour.

It's a low priority I would imagine, and within a few years at most, will disappear

In your code, remove the bit that says

Code: Select all

    .postbody h3 {
        display: none !important;
    }


That will make it come back, to make it look a lot better, replace the above with this instead

Code: Select all

    .postbody h3 {
        font-size: 1.1em;
        margin-bottom: 4px;
    }

Good work.

Is there any way to replace that bright blue that's behind Announcements and Topics please? I can't seem to find it and it's making my forumming too obvious to other people at work. :blush:

besides things now being on the right, the default forum look is not bad in chrome.

Works for me in Chrome, but it doesnt do anything in Firefox for me? Stylish is installed and so is the style and its enabled too... something must be preventing it form working :mad:

You can add this code in, as i've said before, make sure that you make note of these changes but making your own "section" at the bottom of the style area, that way, if I update the master style and you update too, you should copy your custom changes out first and then paste them back in after you've updated the master style.

Otherwise you'll lose your custom changes.

Code: Select all

.forumbg {
  background-color: #eeeeee;
  background-image: none;
}


ul.topiclist .header dt, ul.topiclist .header dd {
  color: #313131 !important;
}

Any way of removing the blue padding down the left and right (and along the top) on the main forum view? (where all topics are listed)

It's still obvious its a forum, but taking that away would make it look a a lot less so :ninja:
