arcadia
version 0.8 [beta]

Image

This skin is the first entry in Project Arcadia. It attempts to improve the user interface and modernize the aesthetic while keeping the Wolfhome "feel". Much unnecessary clutter has been removed, the color scheme has been tightened up and some bugs have been fixed (such as the incorrect table offset in thread view, and large images overflowing page boundaries).

Please keep in mind that this skin is still in beta. If you have this skin enabled already, you can check the version at the bottom of any page.

Highlights:
  • Thread images now have a capped width to account for overflow.
  • New header area
  • Control panel links have been grouped more intuitively
  • Color scheme has been updated
  • Fixed: Incorrect topic table offset, avatar column width mismatch.

See this thread for general information on Project Arcadia.

Skin Roadmap:

  • "Meet the team" link needs proper spacing
  • Birthdays / Statistics headers need treatment
  • Need to remove post-body width cap

Great WIP. Not applying to all part of forum, though - only those direct links. Not sure if you are aware or not.

You need to make sure each URL block is set to URL starting with and not just URL. Change this and try again.

It looks great, I must say. I usually hate change when I've gotten use to something for so long, but this looks wonderful. Something to note though, "last post" doesn't show up. It's all black like the boarder around it. That could be me, because I'm the furthest thing from computer wize, or web designer.

Thanks!

I'm not sure what you mean. Can you take a screenshot and send it to me?

Are you sure you have the three blocks correctly set up within Stylish? Double check your "forum" box, there is an override that fixes this problem.

Go into your Stylish settings and edit your theme. Make sure that the box for forum says: URLs starting with and the URL is http://forum.wolfhome.com/viewtopic.php. Can you confirm that for me?

Is there a way to work this with Mozilla? The addon is slightly different.

Yes. I used http://antifaro.com/arcadia/skins/arcadia/forum-min.css with http://forum.wolfhome.com/viewtopic.php. It is "URLs starting with" so everything should work?

Sounds like there may be a little confusion with the installation instructions. I'll record an instructional screencast later on today.

I'll look into the Firefox version of Stylish.
