The new layout is an eye saw and very hard to read

you can change it back at the bottom of the page
 
because it took me a while to find, here it is:

I don't really like it. Much of the forum has ugly white borders around things. And some text is hard to read (I.E. the text at the top right of all pages).

Are you talking button images here?
 
Unfortunately, no one is making me new icons to get rid of that. :(

I should be able to make all of them, but it will take me a day or two. Thanks for using my buttons :p
 
I never bothered to switch to that particular theme. The Unreal one suits me better.
 
It'd look cooler if the posts and threads were slightly opaque so you can actually see the background without scrolling to the bottom.

The background's the only cool part of this new view mode

That'd make it terribly hard to read anything. It doesn't have to be "cool", rather just something to go with SC2 and yet keep the elegance and readbility of the original theme.
 
Hey Ghan, here is a fix to the reputation. I changed the colour of positive reputation to cyan, hope you don't mind. I've got the rest of the stuff on the way too.

Here's a test of what it would look like:


EDIT: Look in next post, images updated.
 
Do you think you could make the "high" reputation a bit brighter? When it's green, there's a distinct difference between the two. Just a LITTLE more brightness between the two. Just on the positive reputation.
 
Okay here are some final changes, removed last download so that you don't use the old images.

All but one button is done now, just got to do all of the other images (like hot thread, locked thread, normal thread, new posts, etc).


EDIT:

Updated Logo:

    News portal has been retired. Main page of site goes to Headline News forum now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am working on getting access to the old news portal under a different URL for those that would rather use that for news before we get a different news view.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Easily done
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
