Added Feature - New Theme.
« on: July 18, 2016, 07:43:16 AM »
We now have a new color theme, known as Blue Piece, available as an option for our members. The colours are a different blue. The scheme is IMHO more aesthetic & pleasing to the eyes. The font sizes are larger & that is another plus point to all those retinopathic eyes.

You can select & start using this theme from Profile / Forum Profile / Look and Layout. The first option is to change the theme. From the default (also known as Curve), Choose the 3rd one known as Blue Piece. Click on Use this Theme, and finally click on Change Profile at the bottom.

That's it. Let us know if you find this feature valuable, and please do report bugs, if any.

Thank you!  I just switched to the Blue theme and the forum is so much easier to read.

Well, apparently I am missing something.  I go to Profile/Forum profile and there is no Look and Layout there to select.  I get my profile but nothing else to select.

When you hover over Profile & slide down to click Forum Profile, then the Look and Layout option is in the left-hand column under Modify Profile.

Wally, when you get to Forum Profile hit Modify and in the drop down menu, you will see Look and Layout.  Click this and you will see at the top of the page where you can change the look click on that and you will see the choices.  Scroll down to  Blue Piece and select it then click on Modify Profile.

Edit to add: You beat me to it Shanny!!

 ~tku~  Easy peasy when you do it right.  I wasn't hovering over profile but I clicked on it and it took me to my profile.  Never thought to hover.   :D

Per chance if you click on Profile, then the "Look and Layout" can be found under "Modify Profile".

Nice, really nice.  ;D
I find the larger font size very beneficial, especially in the post reply text box & the quote section. With the earlier scheme, it was difficult to read quoted posts.

We've added the theme changer block to the right panel. Changing between themes is now easy. No need to go into Profile and make those changes.
