The links are not easily noticeable, as was said already.

Mind dumping out the icons and the whole theme folder.. so I can preview it.. or attempt to.. did some tinkering last night.. but it errors out without the icons and I am too damn lazy to step through the code and create them all or a version of it right now.. lol.

Forum programmers do have an appalling tendency to make their class and variable names opaque or worse, ambiguous. It gets really frustrating trying to navigate among things named as unhelpfully as x1, x1a, and x2. The worst part is that some of the classes might only be used once on the entire forum, or in an obscure area available only to moderators (or never, depending on the settings of the forum), so hours spent scouring the site after commenting something out may yield no results. Or the results might not be apparent for days or weeks, only emerging after a setting was changed, by which time it is almost impossible to remember what was commented out/edited earlier. To top it all off, the files tend to be wretchedly documented, if they are documented at all, peppered with vague comments that do little to elucidate the code.

I don't know what would be so hard about naming classes and variables explicitly enough that anyone reading the files could figure out what they do without consulting a manual. Yes, it might mean a little more typing, since the variable names would be longer, but as my father likes to point out, most of programming is just cutting and pasting anyway.

Put a few hours into the Site skin tonight. Did the testing on PackersBeta.com (while its still available) and created the Skin package and installed it Live. So far, no errors.

Registration has a blue color that I can't figure out how the hell to change.




I'll work on the Forums skin tomorrow.

While I like the green color (seems real close to the real Packer Green), the light green letters are very hard to read.

And while the mouse-over red is kind of cool, but the un-mouseovered black is next to impossible for the eyes of a geezer like me to find.

There are two skins, one for the site and one for the forums. I didn't touch the forums, yet.

Yes, the black on dark green is hard to see. Maybe it is only happening with certain Internet browsers. I use Safari.
