The site redesign is here!

Post by webmaster »

The site redesign is nearing completion, so now I could use some people to help test it out and find problems I missed.

To test the new design, add ?skin=2 to the end of any URL (or if the URL already has a question mark in it, then add &skin=2). This will change the style for that page. To change the style for all pages, use set_skin instead. To change back, just set it to 1 instead of 2.

And note that there is no new style for the forum. We're going to be switching to phpBB3 soon, so I'm not going to bother styling all the phpBB2 forum templates.

New style:
http://www.AbsoluteAnime.com/index.html?skin=2
http://www.AbsoluteAnime.com/index.html?set_skin=2

Original style:
http://www.AbsoluteAnime.com/index.html?set_skin=1

I'll have to get used to this but I like it....
Now that I've settled down a bit, got knowledge of the land and have a routine set up I can finally get back to doing what I wanna do most... Can someone tell me what that is?

I think it looks fine but the section where our avatars, usernames, post count, etc. are not on the left side of our posts anymore. Same as with the smilies option in our Post a Reply pages. Those are the only problems have with it. But I like the new tags you put up.

I'm sorry I have to double-post. It's just that I can't seem to edit my post right now. I wanted to also include something.

Right now I only have the two default styles that came with the board, prosilver and subsilver2. I modified them slightly to put up the site logo and some advertisements (gotta have those stupid ads!), but when I get some time I'm going to create an Absolute Anime style to match with the rest of the site. I won't know what, if anything, I'll rearrange until I actually start working on the new style.
