Try the new forum theme! Andor's Trail Cobalt

Post by Zukero » Sat May 25, 2019 7:33 am

Hello adventurers,

To give you a consistent experience across both the game and the forums, I created the "Andor's Trail cobalt" theme for phpBB.

It will not be set as the default for now, because I am not a professional web designer, and things may not be working as I think it does for everyone. I know some stuff aren't perfect with older versions of Firefox.

Please try it out, and report any issues accompanied by a screenshot, your OS and web browser version. If you are using a computer, not a mobile or tablet, I would appreciate it if you could right click on the problem and select "Inspect element" before taking the screenshot.

To try it, follow this guide:

_20190525_090545.png
The result should be like this (on mobile):

I hope you will enjoy it!

Already known issues, that will be fixed before setting the theme as default :
- The names of Admins and VIPs are hard to read.
- The smilies have jagged edges.

Overall, it looks good, but it has a lot of rough points. Mostly in and around the buttons. My profile pic is almost unreadable. what does this green text look like? it actually looks good.

Yup. You can give it a white background, with paint or any image editor really.

Looks good and I finally updated my profile. But the Avatar ended really mini with 58x58 pixels, just to reach 8,00 KB.

Indeed, 8kB isn't much.
I bumped it to a whopping 16kB, and you can also use your gravatar avatar.

You have a very detailed avatar. A simpler design would work better with a 16kB limit.

The pixelated border around the buttons just looks amateur. It doesn't look like the buttons weren't designed for a dark background.

I get what you mean. I just uploaded a new version. You may need to clear your browser cache (Ctrl+F5 does the trick on windows) to enjoy it.
