Changes to the Board

Post by a01butal » Fri Dec 08, 2017 1:22 pm

I see that some changes have been made since the last time I was on which was either yesterday (Thursday) or Wednesday. Is there a way to change the coloring on the screen? The blue now seems to make seeing some characters very difficult and yes I am color-blind but I didn't have any problem with the old screen layout, maybe there is a quick change I can make on my Profile or Control Panel just not sure what or where it is. Thanks

Change happened this morning. Looks like there's only two themes at the moment AcidTech and Black. Both are heavily based on the color blue though. Go to User Control Panel->Board Preferences->Edit Global Settings Tab and there is an option labeled My board style which you can choose the board's theme. Default for me was AcidTech but I switched to Black and prefer it. Font is a bit larger which helps.

EDIT: Scratch that...the Black theme seems to have some problems like displaying Avatars. :?

Here is a link to try out all of the styles available for the version of phpBB we're currently running: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... 43aa419a88

Try them out and let me know which ones you feel should be installed here. I will install whatever ones are the most popular.

like the layout and feel of the one called 'Black' very similar to this one.

For those that wont test all the flavors, here are my favorites

Carbon is pretty easy on my eyes.

I definitely don’t hate AÇIEEED and it fills the gold/yellow needs

Flat is pretty boring, which I could totally see myself using

Hexagon is also pretty nice. For those that like the dark background, the white really pops.

Wow a lot of different formats to decide from, not going to be easy but there are some that are easier toview than what we have now.

Switched to the current "Black" option and that is a lot better for me. Thanks for the road map to finding where you can change it under "Board Preferences".

That carbon one would probably work best for me for overall readability, not that the new acidtech is all that bad. I'm just glad that neon green is gone - I don't have to wear my sunglasses here anymore. :D

while the color is going to take a little getting used to its a butlload better than that green :mrgreen:

my biggest HOORAY is that the board fits my computer screen again vs. that crazy stripe only utilizing 1/3 of the screen before 8)

Thanx Lowgear for the improvements...

I do like the blue, it's close to "Associated" blue.
