New Default Theme

Question

adamcs

Hey everyone! As you can see, there's a new default theme for GTAForums. The old theme was bland and lacking in contrast. Admittedly it was rushed, because when we launched it we had just completed the big upgrade and the old skin was no longer compatible. The new theme uses space more efficiently and is more pleasing to the eye.

 

You can of course switch back to the old skin using the "Change Theme" menu at the bottom.

 

Some other things:

 

1) Flags are back! Select your flag in My Control Panel > Profile Settings.

 

2) There are still plans to port over the GTANet 2k4 skin, but it won't happen until later this year. A new version of IPS is being released soon (v4.0) and IPS has indicated that old skins won't be compatible. If we did it now, we'd have to completely redo it again in a few months.

 

3) We've made some improvements to the mobile skin and will continue to do so. Please post any issues or suggestions that you have...

 

4) More themes (darker themes, lighter themes) will be added in future.

You need to add separate flags for the UK.

 

May I suggest the famfamfam flags icon pack?

They are slightly smaller than the ones used here, but better drawn in my opinion.

 

They are free to use, come in .gif and .png formats.

http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/flags/

 

They cover all Countries too.

 

 

Edit: Actually, this pack seems to be the better pack: https://www.gosquared.com/resources/flag-icons/

I just changed it back to the new one.

On both my tablet and phone the "Change Theme" button(?) doesn't appear for me so I have to wait until tomorrow to admire it's sexiness once again. :( Edited by Kalvin

What do you mean?

 

I've seen the England and Welsh flags listed and I'm sure the Scottish one is listed but I didn't look for it.

Did I miss something? I cannot see any change in the themes. Are the admins still working on improving the layout? I am really sick with this one. I would like to have a mixture of all the GTA titles on the top banner and a little more varid theme like the one from the old GTAF.

Yeah, basically what he said ^ I guess the admins are working on it. Not completely sure, but I don't have it either.

Update: Sorry, we're still making some final touches. Skin will be launched tomorrow instead. Here's a preview...

 

It was released but then they found a bug so took it back down. There is a preview in the OP. It'll be fixed tomorrow :)

By the way, the flags remind me that we NEED those gay pride flags, etc returned. Those were a fun addition.

It'd be nice if the flags were bigger but I'm liking the new additions. I also noticed that next to your Member Log, points aren't displayed anymore. (It used to show for me as Member Log (0) so I'm going to assume some changes are going on in that department?

 

Wasn't here to use the new skin but I like the look of it, good job guys.

No flags on mobile site though, but it's fine. Less clutter that way I guess

FU*K. I was too busy watching bird porn that I missed it.

 

Literally though, there were two birds doing it at my window.

 

Anywhore, nice work guise! Can't wait to try it out.

Yeah, I guess some changes are being made. For me, it used to be Member Log (1) or something. Now, it's just Member Log. I'm still getting some vengeance on the mod that gave me the warning.

 

You can guess who he is. :p

 

Hint:

 

Gta IV fanboy.

Haven't been able to see it but from the preview that looks amazing, can't wait to have it back. It's feeling more and more like home again each day.

How do I change my theme?

You can't at the moment as there are no other themes to choose from - The new theme was taken down temporarily due to an error.

When new themes do become available, the button to change theme will appear next to the 'Mark Community as Read' button :^:

I only caught the glimpse of it last night. But it was love at first site. Now it's gone, and my heart is aching.
