default Altering the appearance of the forum

Post by Logan (Earthmaiden) on Tue May 06, 2008 8:46 am

None of the changes I made to the forum yesterday seems to have taken except for the little smilie next to the topics. All else seems to have been automatically converted back to the original, including, the black text that helps those with older eyesight. Seems you really can't do much with this forum to alter it's appearance after all.

Did someone change it back? Whenever one of us makes changes, we should post here so that everyone knows.

Sorry Logan, I did change it back, at least partly. I thought I said so in one of the pm's. But I wouldn't mind the black text back. I'm not sure where to go to find it.

Thanks Melodi

I added one more thing. An Off and On icon to click on for logging in and logging off.

I did notice it yesterday. You've been having fun exploring the possibilities.

Uhm, would it be possible to have the super-secret/private forums marked different?

I guess two forums are private now, or more? Or just 1? Anyway, it's not visible which one/s & I thought it would be kinda nice... If/when it's possible to do so... No rush, just an idea what to try to go for...

Yes, Nucky has been practicing and arming our forum against attack Laughing . So has Logan a bit.

I am still trying to figure out how to work the setups. I do need to regroup the closed forums together. There are 4 of them right now.

I will be working on arranging the catagories for a while this evening so if you see things moving around that's why.

Cool If you could group the open forums and closed forums together, it would be appreciated. One less thing for me to do (although I still need to play with the controls).

Oh and one more thing: while the forum is under construction, "the Suggestions for the Forum" forum should remain at the top of the list.

There seems to be a problem with grouping like you've suggested Melodi and still have Suggestions for the forum at the top. Someone created a Catagory named General Discussion and grouped some of the Forums under it. I can't figure out how to delete the Catagory witout deleting what is grouped under it. If someone could figure this out, it would make it a lot easier to arrange the topics on the index page the way we would like them to be. The catagory named, General Discussions isn't visible on the idex page but is on the admin panel. Forum, Management, Catagories and forums. Maybe someone can see if this can be remedied.

Yes, I just tried to make a second category and arrange the forums between the two. I can't figure out how to move forums between subcategories, so I didn't save the 2nd one.

INFP, take up the gun slinging smileys with Nucky; you and he can decide which ones to keep on the main smile page. You know how he likes to have fun with those things, just as you like to have fun with your gun slinging bono.

Maybe we can have an off the deep end thread in one of the closed forums to store all the extreme stuff...you know, like extra closet space. big grin

Sorry, my fault. I got rid of the redundant ones.

Is that good, or do you want me to get rid of a few more?

Glad the private forums are marked now!!

One suggestion: it would be better to mark them as 'private' as opposed to 'closed' - 'closed thread' means it's not open for posting anymore, so someone might misunderstand the forums are not open for posting!

About smileys - I'm okay with them temorarily, they are a hoot!! lol! headbang Maybe when Nucky gets tired of them, we can add other ones in the mix? Smile

Not a problem; I'll make the changes.

And Nucky, ummm...about the slaughering the cow "smiley"...the others are all fine. I'm not so sure about that one though.

I'm playing around behind the scenes again, so if you see changes that's why.

That's fine, as long as you can change them back if need be. The way it is now is easily readable.
