Site template options!

am .

Because we know you don't all like the same thing, we have put together a selection of templates for you to view the site through.

To be able to set your preference, you will need to register on the site:-

  1. Go to the "Login" menu and click on "Create an account"
  2. Create your account
  3. Go to the "Profile" menu under "Discuss" and click on "Profile"
  4. You will see these options in the template drop down

  5. Select one, press preview to have a quick look and save to save it to your profile as your chosen template to follow our ongoing work!

So not only can you save time when posting comments to our blog posts, you can now experience our site in new ways!

Here is a gallery of how the templates look.

TRIGGER: This template is not "responsive" which means it is not suited to phones, but will be fine on larger screen.

Because not everyone likes the same thing, we have created a number templates for you to view our site with. Enjoy!

It appears the "Resonate" template is causing 100% load of one of the cores of my CPU in Firefox. Other templates do not seem to be increasing CPU occupation for apparently no reason.

My main suggestion for the main blogpost text in bright layouts is to keep the background completely white and the text black or very dark gray, to increase reading contrast. Gray text on light gray background is tiring.

Something like this:



By the way, there's a bug in the template system: accessing the website through RSS links/notificat ions bypasses it (the template reverts to the "New Fire" one). Refreshing the page however makes the template switch to the previously selected one.

Any suggestions, drop them in here. If you know, how to do it, give the CSS tag, rough description of change and suggested colour.

We need to fix the YouTube video responsiveness for mobiles and we are waiting on the conclusion of a 100% responsive forum template to be completed by the developer. Should this be done, there will be a VERY sexy forum that should work on all devices.

Although I feel that the extra templates could be optimized a bit in the color and font selection, they are a nice improvement for people like me who prefer light templates because they have set up their monitor brightness to an ergonomic / comfortable level.

I'll settle with the Resonate template until further changes.
