Important A New Support Design Theme is Coming

Post by Leviosa on September 14th 2015, 2:10 pm

First topic message reminder :

A New Support Design Theme is coming!!  
Dear members,

Forumotion is about changing the support design cheers  For some time, @Leah7 and @Ange tuteur, our volunteer Managers, have been working on a new support theme.


We will install the new theme on Wednesday 16th.
This new layout is more modern and will improve the navigation via footer links.

Here is a brief overview of the future support:

Spoiler:








I would like to thanks Leah and Ange for this wonderful work. I hope that everyone will enjoy the new support forum.

Warning: As it is a testing phase, if anyone has trouble with the new theme or notices any errors, please post them in this thread.

Best regards

Forumotion

EDIT: Since this is a new design with different warning bar images, everyone should have there's re-filled so that they'll have a fresh start like when they first registered Very Happy
@Ghost No the warning bars will not be refreshed all warnings will stall stand as they are.
it's just a new FM theme nothing else will change.

We could always give more warnings out if you like Wink lol

I would like to think so but I would not know as I don't work in the main office I work from home in the uk.

But @Buttercup @Ange Tuteur @Leah7 Are More then Capable of doing the changes needed to change the forum theme.

And I know they will do a fast and smooth job of it. Wink

Like Ape said, sometime around when Buttercup, Leah, and I are online. I usually first check in around 04:00 - 05:00 ( EDT ) and I think Buttercup arrives an hour before that.

Yellow color for support moderators is too bright and it's hard to look, I think it should be changed in some less bright color. Overall new theme looks good.

As McDonald's would say: I'm loving it!

There's a white space at the beginning that doesn't look good. When I first saw it seemed that would be covered by the toolbar but it's not.

Anyway the theme looks great. With a few changes won't be hard to get used to this desing.

The new theme looks great, its a nice change and I really like how unique this went.
HOWEVER, I still believe that the previous theme was much cleaner.. this looks sort of messy at some points, things don't blend that much in my opinion. For example the very dark toolbar and the post head's black color kind of hurts my eyes or draws unnecessary attention to it which is a con honestly.

I do appreciate this change though, the old one was getting really rusty Razz

When I saw it on the picture I was: "Yeah, good design for sure", but when I use it now I'm like "WHOAA!That's pretty awesome".Good job, guys!

I have one suggestion.I was looking on my profile and saw that forum version, browsers, zodiacs, online/offline icons on the friend list were still the same.They can be flat too.Would be good.Again, you did it good Forumotion team.

Cheers! thumleft

I'll keep those profile messages in mind! I will admit, I am sad that I made it brighter. I wanted to do the opposite.

Thank you all for your feedback.

I personally feel that its too bright, it wasn't something I really noticed when I was testing the forum theme out because it was in short bursts e.g. I would go on to see something Leah or Ange had changed and then log off but I personally feel that its really bright.

I agree with your comments that the old theme was much cleaner because you didn't have so much going on. However we did need to update, while the design we had was good, it was old.

One thing that we could consider is a theme changer and have a couple of support themes maybe a modern new one and a classic FM one?

Just throwing ideas out, not sure if its possible.

Hello all,

I think that we all need some time to get use to the new changes.. To me it still looks bright but i will get use to it. It is something new and different and it needs some time so the eyes get use to it!Smile

The only thing that bothers me now is the contrast, it's not soft on the eyes, the sharp black and white.
Post profile looks excellent!
Regardless, @Leah7 and @Ange Tuteur you did an amazing job Smile

Loving it. So much clearer and easier to read and navigate now. Well done, guys! Very good

I especially love how the avatars are now uniformly displayed (within the porthole circle) and yet still allowing them to keep their own individual identities.

We made the profiles smaller by removing some of the info on them.

other then that it looks to be the right size for the data showing in the box  and as it is more to the center it has to have some room.

Thinking thou I don't think it's any bigger then it was before it is just less in it

That's normally how the widget displays, at least on phpbb3. The tags used are defined as block-level elements, so they "hog the whole line" whereas inline elements are less greedy. Razz

Regardless, it's unsightly, so I've made some modifications to that. Thanks for mentioning this. Smile

We've actually been toning down the intensity of the colors ( white ) slightly. I can agree about your comments on the post headers, I'll see if we can work on changing that to a more appealing color.


Thanks again for all your feedback, we've been paying close attention. Neutral
