True, False, Maybe

The New Theme -- following up.

Posted by , in Site Related 15 January 2011 - - - - - - · 486 views

I've gone through the rest of the items that I care about, and adjusted them.

I've also only tested this on Chrome. Why? Because I made it for me, not really for the public. I'm throwing it out there for the world in the hopes that somebody else might find it useful, too. And because a few people asked me about it.

Right now I'm satisfied with how this looks in chrome. As the site continues to evolve I'll probably make more changes to it as I see fit.

For easy installation and better distribution I've posted the script on userstyles.org. That way I won't need to provide further installation instructions. You can follow the link and use the "Install it" button.

Without this I was able to see just one post on a page. Now I can see about 3 posts on a page. There is more information, and it doesn't limit me to 1250 pixels when I go full screen. Full screen on my big monitor shows about 5 posts per page. That's enough to satisfy my craving for seeing nearby posts when composing a reply. And that's all I really wanted.

The New Theme

Posted by , in Site Related 13 January 2011 - - - - - - · 417 views

As I've mentioned in a few posts, I'm working on trimming down the site a little bit in my own user css.

I have trimmed down the top menus, assorted boxes and dialogs, and forum post tables. I toned down the background and adjusted a few colors. I moved the feedback image so it doesn't cover the text, and moved the "loading" tab to the side for the same reason.

I'm developing it in the Chrome browser because it is surprisingly easy to create style rules, edit them, and review changes on the fly. I have no idea if this works in any other browser. Let me know if you like it.

I've still got a lot of work left on it, but if you want some changes please let me know and I'll incorporate them.

Enjoy the file. I hope you find it useful.

The next item on my hist list is the user info boxes on the left side of forum posts. They take WAY too much vertical space.
