    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    My initial reaction is that I like the new one, though I'll give it a try for a bit and see how I feel after a day or two.

    I added a Thanks to the first post- if you switch back to the old version, it seems not to fit the page. Just an observation, but would that affect the possibility of switching back if a permanent change were made across the forum? .

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    I love the old version. In my opinion, the new one needs more colour. Its too bright and that makes me feel uncomfortable.

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    I have been testing it for a while now and I was going to say that I quite liked it. I can see Mara_ce's point about more colour. It looks OK on my screen, but if the top of a post has shading that was a bit darker, it might make them stand out more clearly on some screens. Are the icons only available in those colours or can they be changed at all?

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    I'm also researching if we should upgrade to vB4.

    You can see vB4 screenshots here: Purchase vBulletin, the most powerful forum software available. or you can see it in action here: vBulletin Community Forum
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    Would that mean using their layout?

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    At least initially, yes. However, I'm unsure how much of their layout is optional at this time. I'm testing this out seperately to the general design here because in theory, much of the final forum design (the forum theme) should be able to be transferred to the new software.

    Yes, but it was better to have it where it was... Thanks anyway, it's not a big problem!

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    As a new member, Im still getting accustomed to the old format. My only comment at this time is that the new theme is too white! The pale blue is much easier on the eyes. A second thought: Is there a reason that the type-size has become smaller?
