The Christopher Lambert avatar is now showing at his proper diminutive size.  This is boss.

'You are ignoring this user' no longer gives a 'show bilge anyway' option which, again, is boss.

Quote from: daf on November 18, 2021, 07:44:41 AMAny chance of a paler background option? My Toppermost posts are now a bit hard to read (having used darker colours for quotes etc).

Yeah, should be able to do a light theme as well easily enough now.

Where's the footnote option gone in the replies bit?

Don't like the deep blues.. makes me feel like I'm browsing the dark web.

Barry is actually contractually obliged to update the look of CaB every time a new Home Alone film comes out.

Sadly it isn't available as of yet for this version.

Should be an option to mention people in there now though - subbed members only at the minute

Edit: pronouns now available as a profile field.

Thanks -

Sorry to be a bit thick, but how do I change it? I've been to the look and Layout bit of my profile and can't seem to get it to change from dark blue.

Sorry, I haven't done it yet, will look into it later on.

That'd be awesome. Light text on dark background hurts my eyes something chronic. Composing a message on mobile is about a million times better though, good job!

Liking the new fonts and colours Barry. Sincerely! I've been playing around with them in preview mode.

It is there, after the "you are ignoring" text. You just can't see it.

My initial reaction was one of "wtf?" but it's taken maybe 5 mins to adjust and once the colour tweaking is finished I think it'll be a huge improvement. Thanks Barry!

Hmm something weird happened with the quoting there. Let's try again.

Apologies - I miss-read your post (as "You should be able to change it now").

Thanks for the tweaks.

No worries. Yeah it's always a shocker and people instinctively hate change, but it'll get better. My glasses broke and I find the whole dark mode thing much better for phone reading these days in general, but definitely some kind of light one that is less conspicuous in work environments will come too.

Poirot, thanks, yeah it's not that bad for a quick edit, just needs fine tuned more later.

My eyesight is also not what it was and I have recently had to increase the default font size on my phone.

Fancy embedded youtube link!

Barry Admin

Oops, I didn't know YouTube embeds were automatically installed now, but they look great on the reactive move theme, so I don't think I mind them now.

The old style portal going back up later today, hopefully, as I have a vague idea and approach for the trans fundraiser forming, so I've just moved the whole forum software forward instead of continuing to wait for them to bloody finish.

I think the alerts can even give you notifications on your phone now, if you want. Still gotta have a good look around it all.

Is that telling the truth? Will we get to see exactly what everyone is doing on the site? Not sure how I feel about that, though I know it's a feature elsewhere.

The last theme was a real sweet spot, I hope it can come back. It stripped away everything I wasn't interested in and just left the important part, the post.

On this one, if you have all the flairs and slogans etc, your profile header takes up a third of the screen.

Nah no need for that, I may have turned it on accidentally. You should still be able to hide your online status from being visibile in your profile, but I'll likely get rid of that anyway when I run through all the options again.

This is a surprise. Just have to get used to it.

Oh the YT embed is nice!

I like it. Now when someone links a video I have some idea what it's about without having to click through.

Proactive

I'm finding it quite annoying (on android chrome) having to read everyone's personal text, location etc, before getting to their actual post. Anyone else?

phes

Yes. Not sure if I'll get used to it in time but at the moment it's a big distraction

Barry Admin

Screenshot please?

Might be able to hide those in your look and layout preferences.

Edit: oh I know what you mean, didn't realise you were on a phone too. Yeah check your profile, otherwise I'll see if there's any way of changing that for mobile only later.

This date is also the third anniversary of HWPV Features saying "I don't think it's going to happen" to me in a wine bar in Moscow after I went meeting her after an absence of over two years, and the death of John Bluthal.A momentous date indeed.

(On Android chrome) the personal text takes up quite a large amount of screen real estate and I can't see avatars.

Posting images is nice with the width/height box option.

Greg Torso

avatars look better. people without them look weird

love the youtube link. hate it when people put unmarked blind links in and never click them, so this'll be a nice addition
