View Full Version : New colours: Sorry to scare all of you!

9th April 2006, 01:04 AM
I am playing around with the templates for the forum. icon_yikes

I wanted to get something that wasn't blue and instead, picked up the cavalier colours. Still fiddling with it! Expect little changes here and there.

So we should "Expect the Unexpected"? :D

It's really kind of fun to see changes now and then. I just can't figure out where you find the time to do all this. You must be one busy woman, to do all this AND hold down a job.

Bruce, I am looking for a tech millionaire to fund my idiosyncracies... :lol:

I can vaguely claim that doing this furthers my career. It is useful to understand the fragments of programming that go into this (and perhaps sadly, I find it interesting and challenging... :o ).

Running (and participating in!) boards can be a bit addictive as I'm sure some of you know. Fun to create a space for a community then watch it develop. The nice thing about running a board yourself is that you can make it look the way you'd like. It has taken me a long tim to figure out how colour changes work and other elements. If anyone was on the board last night they'd have seen it keep changing colours over about a two hour period as I experimented. :lol:

Basically I like the simple design of the phpbb default template and too many board design styles that I looked at are really fussy and complex. But I didn't like the blue default colours. So overall the board won't change much; I just wanted to colour coordinate more to our dogs. :)

Im one of those people who hates change....even furnature being moved can toss me in a tizzy...I LOVE the new colors...very sharp and professional!

I like the red, but the background is still blue. Which seems odd to me.

Do you mean the grey of the forum itself? Thoose are three different shades of grey. Kind of a bluey grey though. I tried changing the colours and they were too dark; not quite right. I'm looking at various alternatives. :) I am just doing the bits I can figure out at a time, then leaving them for a while to think about it further. 8)

yea. I guess it's grey. Kinda w/ a bluish tinge, maybe...Or maybe it's just my eyes! :lol:

I like the colouring, it's nice to have something a bit different icon_banana

It is grey but I agree it is a cold steel grey so still looks blue-ish. I am trying a few things -- intention is to get all that off before too long. :)

Can the new posts (flags in the circle) be a bit brighter, cannot see them to clear.

Do you mean the orange flag inside the red circle? I can't increase the colouring of those unfortunately -- they come pre-installed. I might have a look when I get time, and see if I can change the colour or deepen it to make it a better contrast against the red circles.
