New Forum Design


As you can probably see the forum has just had a major design change. emoticon

There a are a few features to be completed, so it's not done yet, most of which are css features like the box around the who is online ,the reply to a post page still needs work, a new banner will be created and some minor features like the hover link and the header in the topics page need a colour change.

I spend a lot of time creating websites, but I found creating this new forum layout surprisingly difficult to get to look right, so I'm not sure what to make of it. I tried to create the popular blue and white forum, yet at the same time giving it a slight uniqueness, and also slightly reflecting the original version of the old design.

I want to have the most suitable design for the forum, so I will welcome any opinions and suggestions, and I am happy to make changes or even start again. So, what do you think?

Re: New Forum Design


The page displaying the posts is one I'm not to sure about, what do you think about the blue box around the name, location, post count and avatar? I will be putting the blue border around that box which I think will help.

Also what do you think about the background colour of the posts?

Also I have not yet tested it on other browsers etc, so please tell me about anything that does not look right.

Tom I think this is a huge improvment and I am very impressed with the changes.

One other thing I would like to see is a option to view New Posts Since Last Visit, if you can introduce that I would be a happy man.

Well done mate.

Re: New Forum Design


Thank you.

I will look into an option to view New Posts Since Last Visit. On the main page, if there are recent posts that you have not read in a forum, it will say New on the left, and in the forums if there is a recent post in a topic that you have not viewed it will also say New on the left.

Hi,

You might want to check out the Runboard Support Forums ]customising the new Runboard features topic. That can save you a lot of head scratching while revamping your boards design. emoticon
