Title: [Theme] Negative
Post by: BryanD on September 03, 2005, 10:44:34 AM
ok im now worried this is my first theme,

Its a mixture of SMF Default and Classical YABB SE, difference is it roughly what the Babylon would look like inverted.
Yet I have changed some colours to make it easier on the eyes.

 Preview  (http://www.test.thelastbreathe.co.uk/forum/index.php?theme=26)

I need to thank Tippmaster for taking a look for errors, Wix3l for pushing me in right direction and of course teaching me over last 3 years, and scottjess  for  helping with the  early problems, and of course both people who helped in fixing body.

It's too dark IMO, it's very hard to read. Also, you'll want to change the images of the linktree to adapt the backgroundcolor:

http://thelastbreathe.co.uk/test/Themes/Negative/images/icons/linktree_side.gif
http://thelastbreathe.co.uk/test/Themes/Negative/images/icons/linktree_main.gif

And change the size of the images in the footer.

I agree with xenovanis about the things she says. I would also suggest changing the Who's Online image and the w3c/php/mysql images at the bottom ;)

As I said it is based on what SMF Default would look as a Negative, compared to what it looked like, i thnk it looks better, but as you said its "IMO", but I shall look into sorting those images... always thought they looked odd.  I am a person of the Dark Side so I dont think its Dark Enough but im gonna leave it.  But thanks both of you xenovanis and forsakenlad.

It's not bad at all.  I really like the buttons.

Thanks Dan those took me about 2 minutes to make... all they are is the SMF Default buttons a  Negative..

Post by: crazystu on September 04, 2005, 03:53:34 PM
you should replace the xhtml and css images with the ones from the classic theme, or make them actuall size. It gives me a "Count the pixels" effect atm...

But it's a very nice theme :)

Post by: BryanD on September 04, 2005, 04:04:38 PM

Post by: BryanD on September 04, 2005, 04:22:07 PM
Kinda... modified text colors etc slightly... was bored and took a screenshot of SMF Default, and was messing about in PSP and went to colours, negative and liked what I saw, so i went through and found out what the negative of all the colours were.  Just waiting for two things then its finished, tippmaster kindly agreed to try and sort the banner he made and my friend is checking to make sure it works on his test board.

thanks it took me a few hours to get used to it when making it, the colours work well in my opinion but its not a colour theme you would expect to be made.

sorry,

the link says you need to update your 1.0.5 to 1.0.6 due to a coding problem in 1.0.5

you can download it at the link below

I haven't tried this theme on my site or anything. Just wanted to say I like the colors!

Also I wanted to point out that your help button on your preview site is slightly higher that the others. I'm using FF 1.5beta
