Announcement: New Styles Available (Elegance, Simplicity, SoftBlue)

Post by Franchise » Tue Mar 13, 2018 6:06 pm

I spent some time today upgrading to the latest extensions and styles versions we have but also added some new sleek looking styles/skins. As of today, there are three brand new styles that inherit from prosilver called Elegance, Simplicity, and SoftBlue that have been installed. There are five or six different color variations of Elegance and Simplicity that are available. I got rid of any colors that didn't go with our logo but I plan on trying out the logos Philly had made for me before with a couple different styles that have red and/or black/grey color schemes.

Anyhow, style changes can be made as follows...

- Navigate to the UCP.
- Click Board preferences.
- Under My board style, select the style you want.
- Click Submit.

Can we get some screenshots? I don't want to change all willy nilly. I need to make an informed decision!

Lazy! Lol. You can always change right back if you don't like it. There's literally like 12 different ones so I'm not going to change to em all and screen shot em especially on my phone. Maybe on the desktop tomorrow.

Simplicity is not bad. I'll have to see how it looks on my phone later, but I'll keep it on this laptop for now while I'm working. Elegance is ok, but didn't like softblue.

Actually, I love how the tool bar at the top of the page stays at the top of the page while scrolling!

I'm on my phone so not sure it looks the same but which toolbar are you referring to?

The top of the page with the drop down menu, main page link, etc on the left, and on the right side all the icons for Mod CP, User CP, PM's, notifications, etc..... it remains at the top of the webpage while scrolling thru threads. No more need to scroll back to the top of the page to click one of those links which I often do.

Gotcha. Think that's not gonna work like that on the phone. But I think there's an extension so if that's something you like, I'll see if there is one. Coulda sworn there was.

[mention]legendkiller003[/mention] Protip tho: there's a little arrow at the bottom right corner of each post under the signature to go back to the top. I'd screenshot it but it's hard to pinpoint on my phone. Just look under your sig and to the right tho. At least on mobile; I forget about the desktop.

Hm, well, yes it appears I did not know this. It does do it on desktop. At least on moble I usually just press my finger at the top of the screen above the time to make page scroll itself back to the top. Still, having that bar follow the scrolling is more convenient than clicking the arrow.

I just tried them. I don't like any of them. I'm sticking with basic prosilver. I don't like change and I'm just so used to that layout now. I don't even like going in desktop mode on my phone, even though I know the mobile layout restricts what you can see. I'm fine with it because it's easier to browse on mobile when using a phone. At least for me.

[mention]legendkiller003[/mention] if you use the new skins on your phone, just switch to desktop mode and the toolbar scrolls with you, just like on your computer. You're right, that IS a dope feature. Too bad it's not on the basic prosilver skin. 🙁

On my phone's browser it's on the top right corner. Click the pull down screen and it says Bookmarks, Recent Tabs, Downloads etc.

Click Request Desktop. Then it converts the layout on your phone how it looks on your computer. It does this with most websites, but not all. Mostly because browsing on your phone is easier with the mobile layout.

Doing that defeats the purpose of the mobile responsive layout tho. You should only need to do that if functionality was legit missing like links and such. Like there are websites where you literally can't get to some things unless you're viewing the desktop version. That's not what ours does. The point of the mobile/responsive is to avoid scrolling and make it easier to read. If you choose desktop, it's a mess to read on a phone.

Oh I know, but the toolbar doesn't scroll in mobile is all I meant.
