PostSubject: GC Update: Theme Changes: Comments/bugs/problems/help   10th April 2016, 12:42 am

EDIT PLEASE READ SECOND POST


Hello All!


I'm pleased to announce that the layout color scheme to the Galaxy Cauldron will be under going some large changes.  With in the next few days, a week at most, the Galaxy Cauldron colors will be changed. As you (should*) know there are currently 2 options for color schemes, a light grey and a dark grey option.  We will instead be moving to a white/light grey option and a dark grey/black option.  Due to forumotion having to share colors between the two layouts, I must use colors that show up on both colors schemes, and at this time can no offer a more "in between" option.


This is a warning for current links, titles, headers, etc that will no longer be visible with the new color schemes. I would recommend a black colored font in the mean time. Once I have finalized the colors I will post some suggestions on what other color options will show up nicely on both backgrounds should you chose to not use the normal font color set for the forums.


* If you do not know how to change colors, please look in the very bottom left hand corner of the forums to see "Select Theme" option and pick between those.



Thank you -

Neo Queen Serenity

Sorry for the short notice! I ended up finishing faster than anticipated.

As you will note we now have 2 new schemes.


We have Bright and Dark.


To change, scroll to the bottom of the page and change it here:






Please be aware it's always a struggle to make everyone happy, so I would prefer any comments on severe issues or problems only be posted. I know that this will not cater to all members, but it's time for a change. Smile

This thread is open to comments/bugs/etc.


Also! If you are concerned that a color you used for a signature/text any where, please post a link or a comment here and I'll willingly check if they both work for you and suggest alternatives so that members using any color can see them.

Thank you for keeping the dark theme! I do really like the light theme, as it looks like you're on clouds, but for my eyes sake, I keep it on dark Wink I like the new Title cards that you and Small Lady have. I haven't seen all the admin yet, but are all of them getting them?

Yes New Rank Icons are being made right now. I'm still in the process of making them, currently the entire Inner admin team have them, and I will work my way down the list. I have a flight tomorrow ( it's 11pm here) so I may not get all the new icons updated tonight/tomorrow.

Interesting new theme! Unfortunately, it does not show up very well on my HD monitor. Some parts of the site are very hard to see, even with the brightness setting turned down to 0. Sad Is anybody else having this issue?

I changed the theme to dark in attempt to resolve the problem, but the header parts (like the bottom where it says The Galaxy Cauldron :: The Basic Stops :: ) are still really hard to see because the white from the new theme still show through. Sad

Sure!


Those header things make the text a bit difficult to read in some places because of their color.
Everything else shows up fine. Smile

Another Update:

I've managed to fix the issues you pointed out, please refresh/delete cookies/history if you don't see them yet.

I've also deleted the "Bright" Option in the drop down menu as default/bright are the same thing. Less confusion now with out 3 options.

Both themes are fantastic! Thank you NQS! I like the new title cards and how the donate coin floats.

I love how you changed the default post icon from the moon stick to the cosmic heart compact, as well as the icons for the member ranks. The only thing I have to point out is that the default/new layout is too bright to look at on high powered monitors, even though it's still pretty. Are there going to be small animations for the crystal ranks as well? I love how the coin for the donator floats!

I love the light theme! Very clean and crisp and fresh for the spring season! Very Happy 

Only issue I've seen so far is that when using the light version, you can't see the "new thread" or "new reply" buttons very well.

Spoiler:

Maybe change the colors between admin helpers and admins? at first I thought they look the same, so I changed the brightness on my extra monitor (is the one i use the most) to see the difference.


I missed so much a brighter theme

I just noticed that the page numbers links in the forums are really hard to read as they're white on a light grey background.

Thank you every one,  as I pointed out,  because themes share colors, I have to find a balance that works between both,  so many color change except those in dire need will not be changing. 

The new thread and new reply will prolly be updated shortly.
