Is anyone using any of the skins aside from the default skin and 'Neat'?

 

I've switched to 'Neat'.

 

I don't think the side bars work on any of the other skins.  We may want to just ditch these.  If there are any that people really like, we can look at fixing them up perhaps, but Neat seemed to be the popular choice of the ones that are added.  It does need a little work though.  I'm not sure I like the huge image icons next to each forum name on the index, they may want to be a little smaller.  Also, is it worth us trying to cut the space between the bottom of the logo and the start of the forum so it sits flush?  The social media icons don't work either, so we should ditch them.

Yeah I use Neat all the time.

 

I personally get rid of the social media icons and imho it looks much neater (ho ho ho).

 

Not really bothered about the side bars.

 

We could just make the logos 100px high which would make them flush, is 12px on the mobile skin a real problem? It would saving messing with the CSS?

I don't mean ditch the side bars... I mean ditch the skins where the side bars don't work.

 

Can you add a 100px high logo and see if it sits flush?  Hopefully it's not a margin that sits under the image regardless of logo size.

The only qualm I have about it is the ModeratorCP link clashes with a small black bar just under the main banner and buttons. Looks like shit. Other than that, it's great.

the Samus logo is now 100px high and does fit, though the text needs moving up.

I've noticed that Neat doesn't have a Like button. You can actually still highlight and click the bottom right of a post to Like it, but there's - uh - no button.

Maybe you can liberate one from another forum skin?

Firefox, but it works now - I disabled Adblock Plus on this fine Advert-Free forum, and it got the buttons showing up. How odd!

Just messing with the 'Neat' skin, and have removed the social media icons.  But that led me to thinking, that perhaps we could use the space and have other type of icons on there.  So, my idea was to have tag logos for each console that link to a search for topics containing the relevant tag.  I've done so for Xbox One and PS4.  Let me know if this is something that you want to keep, and I will do the same for the other platforms.  It's not exactly a brilliant feature, but makes the forum a bit more colourful.

Yeah, I'll do this for the other platforms.  Just wanted to see if the idea was good before doing that.

I'm wondering if it might be better to have just Xbox, PS, and Nintendo and PC, with Xbox linking to Xbox,360 and One?

You can't link to multiple tags, I don't think plop.  Hence why I've done it this way.

Ok that is easy then :) 

 

Oh a quick question about tagging, is it possible to add tags to an existing topic? I've had a look but can't seem to see how to do it.
