MARS design - old design is back

Postby BraenDead on Tue Jan 04, 2011 11:45 pm

After spending a lot of time updating the old styles to work with the new version of phpBB, I think I have most of the old styles back in place. If there is anything you would like changed, or that looks like it isn't working appropriately, please let me know.

Thanks!

Looks good! :D

One thing - the header looks a little narrow on my computer, it seems like it should line up with the lower area. My browser is Firefox, in case that's a factor....

Thanks for all your work on this Bob!

Safari has the same header phenomenon as Sula reports.

I like the look, though. Very sharp!

Yeah - the styles need some tweaking to fix the alignment issues and some of the headers. I didn't really feel like spending anymore time after working on it for 6 hours last night. I will look into the PM's not working right away and post when those get fixed, thanks for pointing that out!

The PM's should be working again. Meisen - I sent you a PM, please let me know if you didn't receive it.

Fixed some more problems:
- You can now login correctly (had some issues in some instances before)
- You can now edit and save your preferences and profile

Excellent. I have also fixed site registration as well. There is a new captcha on registration to help keep anymore spammers/bots out of the system (although we haven't had many for a while with the prior changes).

I've added the "Members" link to the header, and cleaned up some of the other styles on the forum.

Another new change, this one much more obvious. I changed the site to be the full width of the browser, so it expands based on how large your browser is. This is done to make it easier to view large pictures, rather than limiting it to 900 pixels wide. I'm not 100% sure how I feel about this change, so please give me your feedback if you have any comments on it.

Thanks,

Bob
