But the rainbow was shocking, green is better.

One thing I'd change, cosmetic really, is the background under menu items. The honey-like color is a bit too close to yellow text and it is not in the color scheme anywhere else on this board (or I haven't noticed).
I'd use the brown you use for (unvisited) links, and make menu text a tad smaller so it doesn't touch the borders.

I's a matter of taste, of course and it depends on you monitor setting, just saying (you asked). emoticon



Ah, yes, much has to do with screen resolution and also what zoom and text size a person used for their browser as well. It is quite daunting to try to make it work for everyone.

The background of the dropdown menu items is actually an image that provides a color transition effect (for lack of a better term) instead of just a uniform color. I thought the current color works well, but I can change it. Maybe someone else would like to add their opinion too.

I went with a larger text size (specified in pixels) for the menu items (categories of links) to help make them standout a little more. I will adjust it down a bit.

EDIT: There, 16 pixels instead of 18 pixels. I think that looks better.

Anyway, I await further feedback before modifying anymore. Off to work I go! emoticon

Agreed - change the honey color background on the menu items. Doesn't work with the color scheme.

most of my posts may run into essay length. I find that for a lot of queries/feedback context is important and that is why this happens more often than not.

have a great day :D

Re: Changes Made to this Board's Design & Future Plans


With some fiddling, back to the drawing board a few times actually, I think I have the background of the menu items fairly close to the non-visited links color (pretty much a brown, though the menu background has some intended variance).

This was not too hard to do... Responses welcome.

Now, I have noticed when visiting the site with my iPad that the dungeon entrance image window does not function as it should, cutting off the top of the image and NOT rolling/shifting with the page scroll...

For now, I am not sure what can be done to make the image effect work with mobile devices. I wonder if it has more to do with touch screen viewing... Anyone have Windows 8 and a touch screen on their desktop pc? Your input would certainly be appreciated in this matter. emoticon

Nope, stupid idea with the dark background. Should have tried it out first emoticon

How about this:
Image
.box h2 {

    font-size: 1.1em;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 1px 3px;
    background: #19387C url('https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=0B3GxVMa37dQXMUNSLUtMWjQta0E&authuser=0') repeat;
    border-top: 1px gold solid;
    border-style: double;
    cursor: pointer;
    color: gold;
}

The blue background was cut off the original WHQ title pic (as on this page logo). If you like it - download it or just make one.

If the border is too much, remove 'border-style: double;'.

What do you think?

I might be able to work with the blue background. That seems a good idea. It might help pull the logo and the board design more together...

I am not too sure about the border, but I will check it out.

I am thinking also, I might like to try to put some sort of texture in the background of the links that drop down, OR maybe some sort of scroll-like faded image....

EDIT: The h2 test seems to have lost its gold appearance by this combination. Maybe it is just an optical illusion. By the way, it really is just colored as gold. I often choose the name of the color if it seems to work for me. emoticon

I am beginning to think a thicker boarder might help to bring back the gold of the text itself. emoticon

Well, that is enough experimentation for one night. It is starting to feel like work again. emoticon

Great suggestion. Still mesh perfectly, but better than the old color.

The forum list separator background image was of much less quality than I had intended originally. Cutlass, the creator of the original corridor image, suggested a better image format to make my modified version of it better.

Here is the newly-installed version:

Here is the previous image that we all seem to have gotten used to:
