This test Star Wars theme...
« on: July 30, 2015, 10:14:16 PM »
In case anyone wanders across this site... I am current testing and building a theme and site design for fx-sabers forums...   hence the logo, etc...

this site can still be used for testing SMF 2.0.x features, and mods...


This theme is a significantly corrected and otherwise modified version of Bloc's Studio003 responsive theme
no signature to see here... nope, not a thing...

OK.

This is the modified Studio003 theme by Bloc

Fixed a bunch of code errors (which are actually present in all three studio themes and the alphacentauri theme)
replaced the new message icons (on the boardindex) with radius defined CSS

removed the newsbox
modified the logo/titlebox to include the saber background

modified the menu, significantly - making the basic menu clean with no excess options
added icons for the non-standard menu items

modified the message icons (first column of the messageindex)  -- these still need some love to make them look nice on a dark theme

added the theme changer option (top left) based on the older "enterprise" theme option (also by Bloc)

modified the display -- theme changer option will not appear on screens below 800px wide (portrait tablet and phone views)

Modified the CSS

Hey there thank you for getting it all in place and testing with the images I sent. 8)
I'll get the top headers resized to test with and come up with a cleaner look for
the crystal cave background as the concept works but needs a little work ;D

Now this is much better,  :D thank you for getting the images loaded up so quick
and making the new forum template to match to the header saber and background,  8)

Again I truly appreciate the continued help with the forums and think the members
will all be very pleased with new new look once it is live.  :D

It really looks like it should have all along ;)

to do, for the future....

modify boardindex.template.php and messageindex.template.php to convert the tables to responsive divs with a table-display CSS

I added the likes mod...   Not sure how well that will translate to the likes in 2.1 -- but we'll deal with that when we upgrade to 2.1 (eventually, after the gold release -- it's currently in beta)

The Live site is looking good, just wanted to remind about the recent posts view-able in the info center
and I did also notice it no longer shows who all is viewing a topic when you are in a topic.

In addition to, no longer shows who all is viewing a topic when you are in a topic. can that be turned on?

I did also notice it is hard to tell what is a stickied topic can those be colored? or just highlighted in some way?

Cool thank you, it actually looks like it is a very subtle different shade of grey
so I would think it can be specified for color or even if you want to do the icons
on the side in color? what ever you think will work and look best.

Ahh wait I see it now, had to refresh things ;)

That works as its just enough to make them noticeable but not dominating with to much contrast 8)

Something Important to implement I think would be that NEW members can not send or receive PM messages until they have 5 posts.

I think this will do 2 things

1. It will encourage new members to post and be active.
2. It may help cut down on those who simply come here waiting for new members and Pm them to join competing sites.
