Alright here's the deal. I plan on starting work on another theme soon and I'd like to know what you all would like to see. :kakashi:

Maybe Child of Red Dark or something along those lines?


I'll clear this with no continues!

The first one looks pretty awesome. The second one seems a little above average, but that background looks like some 14 year old on vBulletin's profile customization function.

 

Although I guess I can't speak.

Yeah normal pictures don't really work on the background. Maybe if I had some kind of abstract background... That might be something to think about.

 

I'd really like to make something completely original this time.

You should use a different font (looking at that first image), something like Candara or Arial, something along those lines.

 

Do you have to code this in css and html? This could be very interesting, I haven't coded for yeaarrrrsss so I wouldn't be able to do that.

I'll play around with the fonts a little and see what I can come up with. I don't want to use a font that makes it hard to read the site.

It's just CSS. I really don't like html. :lol:

I can do html fine, it's the CSS that trips me up. Haha. Do you have photoshop? Or do you not want to go that deep?

I don't yet. I plan to go deeper after I upgrade my PC in the fall... Which might not happen until later if the PS4 costs more then $500.

Just wondering if I could give you a .psd to code (provided you like it of course), if I ever got motivated to do that. lolza.

 

If you need any second opinions on parts feel free to give me a pm I've built many PCs and know a decent amount, don't ask about GPUs though, haven't kept up with that.

Yeah I don't know, I'm lucky to to half of the things that I do on this computer. My good one broke down a while ago, so I've been stuck on my old one. I'm currently saving up for a beast of a computer.

I'll keep that in mind when I get closer to my $$ goal.

White and green theme! :aww:

I like the black and green theme but I can't read light text from black background for too long or my eyes start to hurt. :C

 

Something like this maybe?

This gives me an idea, Custom themes. You pick a primary color and a lighter shade of that color to make your own personal theme. I'm writing up some code that will be as easy to edit as possible and I'll post it here when it's finished. Then users will be able to edit their backgrounds with hex color codes.

 

Here's a sample of a green theme.

Spoiler

 

Right now this covers most of the site and only uses four hex codes for the primary color and two for the secondary color. :kakashi:

I had a problem using your theme, when copying and pasting it would past the back ground aswell as the letters.

Sorry about that.

The first solution I know of is to highlight the text again in the post box and hit the 'remove format' button in the posting toolbar. It's the one with the image of an eraser next to the 'light switch'. That should work.

Another option would be to hit the light switch and paste with the plain text editor, then hit the switch to go back to the normal post editor.

I hope this helps you. :kakashi:

 

Edit: also you could just paste as plain text.

Alright I'm on a computer now let me test this out out. 
 
Copy & Paste from Green & Black theme
Alright I'm on a computer now let me test this out out.
 
Copy & Paste from IP.Board theme
Alright I'm on a computer now let me test this out out.
 
Copy & Paste from OMF Red Classic theme
Alright I'm on a computer now let me test this out out.
 
Copy & Paste from Red theme
Alright I'm on a computer now let me test this out out.
 
So it's not really a problem with my theme, but the forum picking up the background color and text color on the page when you copy the text.

To fix that try going in the editor and clicking the little gear icon at the end of the top row and checking the paste as plain text by default option.
