New Forum Icons

Postby weasel on Tue Dec 02, 2008 2:06 pm

I've been making some changes to the forum template to make it a bit more themed.

It'll take a bit of getting used to but once I get them all in place (I have to make some new graphics beyond what are in place right now) I think we'll learn to love them!







(you'd better learn to love them :argh: )

Hover over each icon with your cursor and wait. A description will appear, saying "new posts," "no new posts," or something else to tell you what it means.

Edit: Apparently that's all they say, with no real explanation of what the symbol means. Here is a more in-depth guide:

:upwheel: Regular topic, no new posts
:cwheel: Regular topic, new posts
:lightning: Global Announcement
:woodrod: Sticky, new posts
:waterrod: Sticky, no new posts
:champ: Hot topic (more than one page of posts, I think)
:boomerang: Moved topic

weasel, try to put multiple icons on one space. for example, if it's a global announcement with new posts, do this: :lightning: :cwheel:
that would get rid of most of my confusion.

New stuff looks great, my only complaint is the global announcements, you can't tell when a new post has been made

You see Image next to the thread.

Then go to "View your posts" at the top of the screen.

Actually, I agree, I hate this.

It's actually not an option to do that as the phpBB Admin board only lets you select one set of images for the new/old posts, etc.

For those that don't like the new forum icons, or the forum theme at all, I've activated three themes. You can change it in your user profile on the forums here.

- Prosilver: The default PHPBB theme
- Contraption: The default board scheme with the themed icons
- Icond_Contraption: The default board colors with the prosilver icons (how it was a week ago)

You should decide on one color for the threads. and then make an icon similar to it but with half the opacity. that way, if it is the darker color, we'll know there's a new post.
