New board theme in development
« on: July 03, 2017, 01:55:04 PM »
Safado is trying to make the board more mobile-friendly.


If you don't like the new/current default theme you can change it under your profile. There shouldn't be any permissions excluding you from changing it. His web developer made this and since Safado hosts the board for free, please demonstrate a little patience while this is worked out.


This thread is for constructive commentary only. Keep the spam bullshit elsewhere. You will get a total of 0 warnings for annoying me on this. Yes, it's at staff discretion, so don't try to fuck with whatever line you think exists either. Fuck off.


If you have a more appealing mobile theme you've seen for message boards, that's great! Post a link here so we have some specific ideas to submit to his developer.

In case anyone hasn't played around with it, the option to change themes is under Look and Layout. The old board theme is labeled Core

Please post any interesting mobile-friendly themes you like. The idea is a better experience for everyone. Please add suggestions on what board template you like - mobile friendly and any other changes you'd like to see

Thanks everyone!

Core honestly has a relatively mobile-friendly layout, except for zoom options

As I have avatars turned off, there's this space left with a big question mark under people's names that takes up an incredible amount of screen real estate on mobil. I'd suggest getting rid of that if possible.

I don't mind it so much.  Now let's threaten to ban Projectcorndog if he doesn't give us a banner stat.

Think it's part of if not the majority of why most people find it unusable on mobil. Certainly my issue. I can't see who posted a comment and the comment at the same time and have to constantly scroll back up. Why I switched to core. Just an unnecessary use of a lot of space.

On board with this as well

The issue is the mobile platform as mention elsewhere, a lot of unnecessary space and very difficult to read.

Yeah, it sucks on the cellphone, but so did the last theme, imo.  I avoid big posts while on the phone because of that.

Thanks for this. Sorry I missed this post and jumped the gun elsewhere. Returning to the Core theme felt like coming home again!
