I think a row of 3 would be better instead of 5 images on theme site.

Looking nice so far. Will take some time to get used to it but always like new looks :)

I'm glad they were able to update the entire site, a great job from everyone who collaborated to make this a fact :reír:. Now is to try everything a little and get used to the new format :PAG.

ADD: It's me? or are the emoticons not going in addition to the image of the range I have? :(

ADD 2: :) ;D  8) O :) :reír:  : - * It seems necessary to define one or the other and the others if they have 3 characters make a jump it does not look good

Interesting upgrade, congratulations!

I would like to know if the SSI integration articles could still be applied for 2.1:

I didn't see this thread but it was nice to come on this morning and see this. Looks good. :)

Looks too "busy" for my liking. I won't be pushing this theme on my users.

I knew something looked different when I logged in today XD.

Awesome job!

It suffers from the old "Let's present as much data as possible in as little space as possible" mode of thinking. Stripping each block down to the minimum necessary content would be a good start.

That was one of my clever ideas back in Alpha. On reflection, I'm not sure it was a good idea. I find myself looking at the interface and thinking of things that would benefit from redesigning.*

Incidentally, having the Preview button before the Post button in the quick reply is bugging the hell out of me, because I instinctively hit Preview when I want Post. IMO those should be reversed.

The pop-up log in form is also annoying. I'd be killing that one asap in any custom work.

*ETA: At the moment I'm thinking it would make sense to ditch the old date text (because everybody has the date on their phones these days anyway) and put the unread links there instead. Much better. :)

I don't use a mobile phone for dates, times, or anything of the sort ;).

I bet you still know what day it is. :D Do you really need to be told every time you look at the top of the forum wrapper?

Yup. I dont use it on my site nor my next 2.1 themes I'm rolling out soon.

Mick.

Date and time? Where? Lol it just dawn on me. My first theme was in 2012 or so and I deleted that line lol

Just playing around with it. Honestly, even on desktop I think it's better with everything just set to display: block; and the mod/theme blocks stacking down the page. Easier to scan instinctively. Would save some code for phones too.

Same in reply editor.  Whose bright idea was it to switch them?
