Getting back to "normal"?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I've gone through and tried to update all the previous styles for this site. I can see why Solecord lost interest - VB5 basically rewrote the entire interface, so the old styles were useless and a complete re-apply had to happen.

 

BTW vb5 is trash, I'd never recommend this forum software. I spent a LOT of time getting the site to where it is - the variables are inconsistent - names don't match the use, hardcoded values, or not specified at all. Several "modules" were thrown in, some of which use variables - some don't.

 

I know there will be places I missed, so if something doesn't look right, drop a screenshot in here and let me know where it is so I can fix it.

A few things to note:

 

This forum is far from it's old self. I don't see any of the old news articles or archives. It would be a real shame to lose all that.

 

I can only do what I have access to. There's a bunch of things I'd like to see done:

 

-Fix styles that I didn't find or gone over

-Fix the styles that look like shit (I'm not a UX professional)

-Add SSL cert

-Upgrade to newest vb5 version

-Fix the icons ( need a better sprite that's optimized for dark themes)

-Add old logo or someone create a new one

-Server Browser needs to be pruned and styled up (I don't know where he code for this is)

-Bring back the community?

-Did I mention I hate vb5?

 

I need Sole's help for some of these

Thank you Efess.

You made a huge progress to the sites visual.

I can only imagine how much work it was after all that you described/explained.

Best wishes,

Seven

I wish I would have known you were doing this. I restyled this site over a year ago to make a personal point that there was no excuse. It took like 3 or 4 hours. Anyway, I could have saved you a lot of time.

 

Good job.

 

P.S. favicon
