Alternative TFK skin is now available from the drop down box.
It’s beautifully titled - Modern Green.
Quite a radical departure so it sort of looks a bit less like a blocky forum. Some will hate that I’d say. Anyway it’s not the default it’s just an option.
If you want to change back to the old skin just hit Skin and Language down near the bottom of the page and select “Basic Green” from the popup window.
Login box and stuff is down the bottom in that skin. Otherwise it’s self-explanatory with menus on the left hand side and you need to access the forums from that menu too. The default view is just to show you new content.
Any comments/suggestions welcome obviously. Don’t intend this being default ever - just an option and it may be a little cleaner for some people in work. Will look just as shit on IE6 as the current browser though.
Flano - think you were on an old skin. Is it working for you now? (Links on bottom left will be gone because I felt they were just getting in the way and weren’t of use). Should see chat bar bottom right though.
The Facebook extended skin/theme has the bar all the way across and I removed that because I was taking away the links on the left hand side. You were still defaulting to that theme so that’s what was breaking it.
Another new skin available which is a better alternative. It’s cleverly entitled “Dark Skin” which hints at the darker colours involved.
To make everything so much clearer I’ve changed the name of the default skin which was called Basic Green I think and is now called Light Skin
There are a few noteworthy changes:
You can choose the secondary colour yourself from the top right of the forum. Adjust the sliders and hit save and the browser will retain your colour setting.
The default colour code if you want to fit in with everyone else is #528036
The post icon on the left hand side is now the avatar of the thread starter
The threads which have new posts have the brighter avatars. The shaded out ones are where there are no new posts.
The login box up the top now slides in so doesn’t load a new page which will be handy for the Brisbane Lion and Gavin and others who are sharing a PC
Any questions or suggestions, let me know.
[*]A lighter version of this skin is possible if anyone wants it.
