New Old Design and Forum

Postby RedRage » 06/03/13, 12:02 am

As was pointed out by Don, the HTML for shellcity was quite a bit out of date. Yes it works browsers do not seem to mind... but boy is it annoying.

I did not plan to update it but it wouldn't let me sleep. So I did. It is now xhtml 1.0 valid and much easier to deal with.

Oh yeah, facebook is gone... for the moment at least.

Forum will be going through some updates this week as I have been made aware of some issues with it. If the forum is unavailable at some point.. don't worry it will be back.

Enjoy

SITE:

made a change to line-height for center column. was messing around borders ended up with a little swish that looked nifty so i left it.

FORUM: Software Updated

Previous style was very not compatible so i just found one that was close and went with it. will be messing with it to make it a little more friendly.

looks good, Red. Try this same font and size on the front page maybe? Just a thought, for consistency

Nice transition on the front page Joe.
Did you do something diff there?

Also, the line height I was referring to was the div.programDesc.
It looks to tight to read quickly and comfortably.
might also consider 1px-1.5px of letter spacing for the smaller font sizes.
Give Ariel the space it needs. :-)

been busy putting out other 'fires'

what do you mean by transition?

I had the center column line-height at 1.25.. locally but apparently I saved it as 1. server side... fixed.

reduced the forum spam pretty well, but some dedicated people do slip through

It's unfortunate that credit to the site design (specifically the header albeit however small it is to the overall design) was removed.

I do not remember exactly but pretty much everything changed, i think about the only thing that stayed the mostly the same was the .body style.

If it really bothers you shoot me a mail with a site you would like a link too and i'll find a place to put something.

We're getting a lot of spam, Red... (now deleted) Need to delete a block of users. Every user who's signed up since October 6. Probably easier for you to do that from the database. Way too many to delete one at a time....
