    Time to update.
    ㊙ projecting.


  • @trevor

    If you tell me what that top secret project is, I promise not to tell anybody else. Promise.


  • I'm pretty excite about the new theme. 🙂 SHARE ALL THE DETAILS!


  • I'd like a link to the last message in a topic because with the current theme in topics with many messages it will scroll down by 20 messages each time you press the ⬇ (near # out of #)

    A million times this.

    @manuel @sp4rkr4t Currently, there's a little popup that says "Click here to return to your last post", which could do this...?


  • I fancy myself a designer! I'm going to spend the weekend putting together a PSD.
    I have a great layout in mind.

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    lol @randymdaniel -- apparently, we have the same ideas in mind 😄

    it links to the last post seen, not to the last post of the discussion


  • @julian + @psychobunny ... Started messing around with some ideas this weekend. I encountered some roadblocks during the thought process. Needless to say, some things still need to be re-imagined, like how things will scale for mobile devices. http://dribbble.com/shots/1475703-NodeBB-Theme nodebb.png

    Thinking, the off-canvas effect would be a two-level option, Categories > Discussions.

    @randymdaniel I love it! The sidebar would completely replace the need for the "home" page (the button might actually trigger the sidebar instead), and it's a more mobile centred approach, which I'd imagine would end up looking more like Google's latest iteration with the sidebars in the Gmail app:

    The great part about this is that the limit is your imagination -- and NodeBB can do it because it's so damn flexible.

    In the above screenshot, the sidebar is pushing the content over, but I think an "drawer" effect is better, where it slides out and obscures the content below it (like the post composer does right now)


  • @julian Absolutely. I might take a crack at it within the next few weeks. I'm off from work the week of April 14th -- maybe i'll go all in then and bang something out. Unless someone wants to give it a go first. I'd love to have this developed for http://raiders.io.

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    Ah, you're running raiders.io yourself -- best of luck! 😄

    Yeah, I want to finish up the development first before going back to the paid subscription.
    I definitely will be back though.


  • now 0.4 is released so when will the new theme shows.....i'am exciting to see it

  • GNU/Linux

    No offence. There is been bad feedback on the default theme from many quarters on my forum. A few of my contacts refused to join because it looked err.. odd. It will be nice if we can have a better default theme for new 4.2. May be in the same lines but a bit more stylish than simple.


  • @meetdilip was that all the feedback they could give you? "It looks odd"...

    you could use one of the other bootstrap themes under skin in the ACP. Or create your own, psychobunny made a great tutorial on his blog, . Oh and 4.2 is a long way off. 0.4.2 was released last week, and unless they've been secretly working undercover, I'm not seeing a new theme quite just yet.

    Why not look into convoes theme, it could be exactly what you're looking for. 👍

    None of them were kind enough to go into details. But may be plan colours I use is the culprit. I am basically an admin than a webmaster. So creating my own theme is a bit too much for me. May I ask a help ? Could someone prepare some images for tiles ? I am still not sure what size of images should I use ? And also even with open in new tab plugin the links are opening in the same window. 😞

    Sorry, if I sound rude. I just conveyed in exact form.


  • @meetdilip Certain aspects I can help you with, but creating a theme is something I charge for. And I'm not taking on paid work at the minute.

    As for your tiles, that's simple enough, best size I've found is about 450x450, then set the container to cover in the ACP. This makes sure that you don't get the background repeating x when you're on a tablet or mobile which has wider tiles. As for what images you want, that's entirely up to you, but do bear in mind any copyright laws etc, you could try somewhere like dreamstime or even google searching for the image you want, followed by stock photo, or use this website to help you find free images. You can then open them in photoshop, or if you don't have photoshop, GIMP is free (and badly named) and will allow you to crop and change the image sizes.

    As for the opening in new tab plugin, I'm not sure, you'd need to speak to the author. I'll have a look at your site briefly and see what I can see.

  • GNU/Linux

    Thanks. I am not looking to change the theme at the moment. A few images should do. Thanks for the sources. In which format I should use them ?.png, .svg or .jpg ?
