New forum bug, feedback and suggestions.

Postby -Nick- » Mon 6. Feb 2017, 20:44

The overhaul of the sites design and the feautures along with it are looking good. I know this intention been long in the works, well done. No bugs so far. One thing that keeps bugging me and that is all the empty space on the sides. Howcome the ratio isn't more spread out and fitting the screen? Seems like im on mobile but on desktop. 1980x1080 doesn't seems right at all. Also, i don't think the tab 'Mine' fits correctly, it should be renamed 'My Posts' to initially add more correlation to the other tabs being releated to the user.
Find a way.

The width of the page is linked to the responsiveness of the style on smaller devices and could cause errors if we make it any larger or smaller.

You can override it now. If you click on your user name > User Control Panel > Board Preferences > Edit Display Options > Use Maximum Width, yes. :thumbup:

The main bulk of the forum is now done, so we're ready for feedback and/or and bugs you my find :thumbup:

Still to do:

- Remove text under the Smilies box.
- Increase the size of peoples avatars in threads.
- Fix the "unable to handle this request" issue. (This isn't to do with the forum itself but our host)
- Synchronise the forum clock. (host)
- http certificate. (host)
- See if it's possible to remove our .de sub-domain (host)

There could be a few additions soon if i can get them to work correctly.

URL Text highlite colour and backgroung highlite colour for embedet links are the same, therefore you can't read the text when highlited. May change the backgroung highlite colour?

On a similar note. I've noticed that when using full width the post area a user makes it not the same as using the other setting. This is i guess linked to the style and performance for smaller devices which is completely understandable and one users small pick on layout should in no way change the experience for others. Anyway, I decided to play with paint and change the layout to what fits and looks best whilst using full width.

How the layout looks using full width.

How it would look using full width but the same layout as the stock.

Quite like how the online tab is currently, but here's a change.

Yeah, it's set as a percentage and not by pixels. As you point out, it's hard to balance between someone using a 5" mobile or a 27" desktop :|

I've reduced the size of the profile from 20% to 12% and the text box from 74% to 87% to close that gap. If anyone has issues with this change please let me know and also add the device you are using.

------------

Has anyone received the "unable to handle this request" error while posting (publicly or PM) over the last couple of days?
