What happened to the old school style?
    #3225053 - 10/06/04 11:51 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)


It somehow aint old school anymore.  :confused:
The posts look 'flat'.  I've been using it for the past 4 years and it just looks odd since the upgrade.

I've been trying to find a screenshot of the old version but just can't find one. I think it has something to do with how the posts are divided.

In the old version, the area at the top of the posts (where the subject and 'quote' 'reply' 'quick reply' buttons are) were a slightly darker color... i THINK.  Or maybe the lines between posts were thicker. Ach.  I just dont know!

Do you guys have the old layout (or a pic of it)? 
The forums look like a flat 'chart' to me now. 


O_o

that's the one i've always used, but it looks so different now. i can't really put my finger on it though. 'flat' is a good word for it. i had to switch to the default one.

the old school style had alternating darker orange on the thread viewing page and each individual reply.

It's be nice to have back, for sure.

It's just not the same.
Glad to know someone else uses the same scheme :laugh:

Were the threads really alternating color in thread viewing mode?  I didnt even notice.  I guess that doesnt bug me as much. :lol: Wouldn't be too shabby to get that back tho. :thumbup:

...and each individual reply.




I'm almost sure it wasn't like that. The posts were the same color. You sure about this?  Looking a bit closer, i think it was the the section i mentioned (reply/quote/quick reply buttons) that was the orange you speak of.  More specificaly, the BG color at the top of the page where the 'My home' 'My pics' links are.  That would separate the posts quite well, but not too dramaticaly.

Can anyone confirm this?

Sweet.  That BG in the 'headers' is right on. :smile:

the BG of the reply buttons is not matching, but i'm sure you know that.

When i compare the ..uhm 'new' old school, and 'test' old school side by side, the txt in the info panels are actualy a lot more clear in the 'new' version. I'm not sure if they're a size bigger, or a different font.  (IE: the 'last post' section in the thread viewer, the text under peoples avatar, and the post # and time info under the heading.)

Sorry dude, i'm not trying to be picky. Just making the best tweak possible so its good for everyone.

Can anyone of you guys give some secondary input?

Thanks Anno!  :cheers:

I figured I'd save Anno a little work so I restored the old classic style (the 'classic' classic if you will :wink:). Anyway I added the new fields which are used by this version of the BB but it should mostly look identical. Please let me know if you have any other suggestions.

Thanks!

Yeah, you were right on the thread viewing.....all is as it should be.

Cept the unread posts show up in white instead of red.

And i have no bloody clue how that happened, don't ask me.
I'm jealous tho. :mad:
