A new look for CC

The blue/white/grey is actually the colour scheme CC used pre-2005. I decided to add it as a theme.

PLEASE NOTE:
I've enlarged the icons on posts, so if you're seeing funny looking icons, just clear your cache or in Firefox, refresh the page a couple of times.

Here's what I see... and what you should see:

(both Classic and Default themes)

That screenshot suggests to me that you were not logged in when you took it. See there is no reply button nor are there any post functions.

The edit button is in the screenshot I posted at the end of page one.

Here: http://forums.canadiancontent.net/at...8&d=1285572321

Please post a screenshot and let me know your browser version so I can investigate.

Yikes. I see what you mean Stretch. I'm fixing it now.

Fixed.

Great Bcool.. now the post you just made should be editable. There is a pencil icon beside the yellow "Report Post" icon. The button will disappear after around (60) minutes.

You're right. I've upped the size of quotes. Just refresh the page or clear your cache.

I don't seem to be getting the regular quote option, only multi-quote. Regular quote was good because it would go right to posting after hitting the quote button. Me too lazy to multi-quote and scroll down for fully reply.

Also, in quick reply, no ability to post image.

Also, the little editing tag was missing and I couldn't edit a post this morning. Those little tags are all too small, btw. I accidentally clicked one to see what would happen and it turned out it was a thumbs down for negative rep. Now that poster has been constantly neg repping me, lol.

Also, the text and formatting looks kinda weird.

Also... you guys rock and keep up the good work.

How dares you to contradictssss me!!!!!

You know, when you pay for using this site you can bitch and moan like that. However, since this is a free site be a little more courteous with your complaints.

Quick Reply and Full Reply both quote the post by default.

Please clear your cache! I made the buttons a little bit larger and changed the sprite files. That means you must refresh the page to see the new images. See all the icons on the page? To speed things up, these are ALL one image now which load 10x quicker:

When I go to the Preview to check a post the font is really pale & rather difficult to see - this just started about two days ago. Anyone else? (Wondering if I still need to adjust display settings - I have already tweaked them to see if that would solve the problem. Didn't.)

Do you mean this preview:

Most of you have probably already heard that I had a group of beta testers testing out some new stuff and a lot of you were wondering what rated posts were. Well I've decided today to make this version live and switch everybody over. (by Andem) Last Page

No, the Preview Post option for when one has finished typing out a post & wants to preview it for errors such as typo's, look, spacing, URLs showing up ok, etc., before submitting it to a thread.

Just did a Preview of this one, the font is a little darker but still kind of light. Is it the choice of Theme maybe?

Andem, may I suggest somehing, which, in my opinion would be an improvement:

The "HOME" line - now appearing near the top of each page should be repeated at the end of the last page. This would enable us to skip "HOME" without scrolling/skipping to the top.

The line which shows "1 2 ... Last" which now appears near the bottom should be repeated near the top, so we would not have to scroll to the bottom when we want to go to the latest post.

I don't know about others, but I think this would help to save time and effort.

I would second that suggestion. Right now, as a work around I simply have a bookmark tab for the home page at the top of my tool bar, so I click on that instead of scrolling back up.

Can the new look be fixed so that one does not have to scroll down the first page of posts to get to the current ones?
