Periodically, when I find time, I've been working on a new theme for the site, one that is more friendly to the eyes. A light theme if you will. If you edit your profile, you will see PH_Light_v2 as an option. Feel free to check it out and point out the many problems with the theme. The more feedback, the more I will have to work with.

The only thing I am "set" on would be the buttons, however, I want them to be a little bigger on some areas. Still working on figuring that part out.

I like it. A few things are a little hard for me being color blind to see.

upper right corner where it says: "Logged in as" and then our user name. The 6 icons to the right of it are hard to see. (If I could screen print like Shawn can I would do so.) They are "user control panel", "private message inbox", "buddy list", "albums page", "my topics" and "logout". The icons and the down down boxes they create. Yellow smilies are also a little difficult to see. [grin1] well this one.

I'm having trouble with some of the colors. It seems you change it once, it changes it in several spots. Then I have to parse it out (for lack of better term) in the CSS and add extra code blocks. Which is fine, no issues there. It's just finding them that is a pain in the ass. I'm finding that having a #003500 background offers more color options than white background. I don't really want blue all over the place, but I would like the links in the Post's to be Red or Blue. However, when I change those, it changes EVERY link color. Really ticked me off the other night, lol.

the section of the shout box that we post the comment in doesn't stand out. perhaps if the border was a different color.

What color would you suggest? I think links need to stand out and I'm kind of at a loss for what color to use. So, I threw red in there for now. I was thinking of using the hover color for the standard color. Just not sure if that sticks out enough.

I am not smart when it comes to colors. I can see the basic green and green colors. When they start to get blended I don't know what it is. For example, I often mistake purple for blue on one end of the spectrum and red on the other.

It depends on the background. Put red inside a box box and it will disappear for me. Likewise the other way around. I don't always see black if it is a red box.

The more light in the room the better I can see the color.

Pastels for the above mentioned reasons are usually harder to see. But then what is the background? If it is white it is easier to see than other backgrounds. I use blue and grey a lot when I have the option but you mentioned you didn't care to have a lot of blue.

Something else to consider, there are varying degrees of colorblindness. So you can do one thing to suit everyone. So suit yourself and the general public first. We will have to adapt. Some places I use my cursor and highlight the post in order to read it more easily. I don't normally do that here.

This is exactly the thing I want to avoid.

Changing the layout a little bit of the site and focusing on making the PH Light theme more pleasurable to the eye. I've changed PH Light to the default. You can choose the PH Dark theme in your profile.



Feel free to point out ANY issue OR suggestion here.

Cheers!

When making suggestions or pointing out things I haven't fixed yet, please (if you know) include your browser. Chrome, FireFox, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc. IF you're using IE, the theme is gonna look like shit. IE doesn't use CSS3 too well and a lot of this is going use CSS3 gradients and what not to speed up load times instead of using graphics.

Less graphics = faster loading website!

Ahh.. the PH Dark Theme has changed and the navigation bar is very difficult to view. See attached.. just noting it in case the change was unintentional.

Chrome 21 I believe. Win 7.

Yeah the Dark theme is going to be tossed or redesigned. I no longer like the style. The background color that makes the header info difficult is site wide, not theme wide.

The PH light will be the primary theme of the site.

I had to take off work today and tomorrow for a little health reason, so you will be seeing changes quite frequently during the day until my daughters come home. :)

Curious question though... why not rename it and leave it in the background for those of us complainers that wish to stick with the old way?

If that was an option, I would certainly do that.
