      BTW - you might want to update http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/print...?threadid=2870 the logo looks a BIT weird in there..

      I would also update the pages a bit more when you post a reply and/or a new topic.

      Everything else looks great!

        Can't we just ditch the logo from that page PERIOD?!? When printing a thread, the objective is to avoid as many images (ie, layout) as possible. There's no real need for that IMHO.

        (And don't say templates - I know. I've removed it from one of my forums, I just don't see the point of it being there by default. And it's not a "main" template, so many people may skip it.)

        (Sorry, a little OT)

          The reply box and text are way too small. The same is true for the next post areas and the edit box and text.

          Also having the pull down menu for the topic jumps and the default number of threads pull down menu just at the bottom of the page is a problem. It should be at the top too.

          The text for the pull down menus are way too small.

              Sorry, I really don't like it. It's too heavy and busy to the eye. Maybe I just need to get used to it, dunno.

              Since design, however, is largely a matter of taste, I will only point at one or two things that I think go beyond text:
              [*] As others have said, the forms background and text is horrendous - as I am writing this, I need a magnifying glass to see what I'm doing!
              [*] The smilies are awful - sorry. They're supposed to animate the text but instead are now just yellow\orange spurt of color. Way phlegmatic.
              [*] Not sure if it's on purpose or a cache problem, but on some pages the old "new thread" "new reply" images are loaded instead of the new ones.

              One question, though, which troubles me not just with regards to the new design: when the new vB version will be released, will it overwrite everything that I've already done on my BB? I'd hate to think that I would need to redo everything, design-wise in particular, from scratch. And not that my BB looks better or anything, it's just that it looks more within the styleguide of my entire site.


              Thanks,

              Bira

              p.s.

              Glad to see you adopted the minute change I've had for the poweredby/copyright line at the bottom

                Menno were you the one behind the "orange-ization" of the smilies? Confess man.

                  I'm pretty sure upgrades don't mess with the templates...at least I hope not! If that were the case I might decide not to upgrade!

                  I like the fact that the layout matches the site...I think more boards should have it this way.

                    Sure, I've spent countless hours to translate all the templates in another language, no way I will upgrade if I have to crush my current templates.

                      When it is time to upgrade you will be told "this template has changed, do you want to update it?"

                      Well since every template has now changed, I suppose you will be asked that for every template. If you say "No" then you will have to compare the HTML in each template and make any important changes yourself.

                        I'm confused...do I say "yes" or "no" to that question during the upgrade process?

                            I still think that from a design standpoint, these forums are gorgeous, but a little more is needed for useability.

                            Bira,
                            The image question is indeed a cache issue.

                              I like the new look a lot. Very professional. Especially the FORM elements. Nice touch.
