2013 Remnantmods Layout & Theme

Postby JacksonCougar » Mon Mar 18, 2013 9:19 am

It's 2013! To celebrate our continued existence I give you a more modern-looking, compact theme for you to look at while browsing Remnant. Not much has changed: the code is pretty much the same as before, but the layout uses less images and resources and should render faster than the old one.

I really hope you guys like the new look but leave any feedback you have about it and I'll do my best to tweak it to be better.

Look good. The default theme was getting boring.

I'm not liking the fixed width, half of the site is just diagonal stripes. It also feels a bit crammed. Is it possible to add an user option to change width? For the top of the site I think there should be a large banner that has ingame pics of various mods released here, although that might be counter productive for reducing resources.

I can faintly see the first 4 letters of my name behind my profile name on the top right, is this normal?

I do like the new theme, however I don't like the fixed width. It almost feels as if I am looking at a mobile web-page or something. Like penguin said, it would be nice if this could be changed as a personal setting. Every other aspect of the theme is really nice. It looks modern, and flows really nicely.

  1. I can definitely make a floating theme for you guys who want one. Give me a few days to work on it :)
  2. The text with the letters of your name in the header is normal: I was trying to be fancy :l0l:

I like the fancy name thing. The fixed width however I could see be annoying at times, but otherwise I like it.

Three more complaints:
(1) No search available for forums
(2) No link takes you to the main page, they all link to the forum home page
(3) Nobody has figured out the menu options layout for me yet...

I like it. Seeing my big brown face up top makes the place feel like home. I often access the site from my phone and it looks good and loads quickly. The favicon looks like hm. If that's what you intended, ok. Not sure what the teardrop is about. Yearning for the old days?

It is supposed to be a plasma bolt :p and the favicon is just the host default one atm.

It's directed at a planet; the horizon of which is visible beneath the bolt.

I picked it up as a plasma bolt. I thought it was a tear at first, but the different layers inside gave me the idea of a plasma rifle bolt.

What happened to the archive folder? I get a 404 error when trying to browse it.

Edit:
Just looked at the rant thread.
