HR Site Changes (Layout)
NetriX
forum.homeroasters.org/forum/attachments/hrmockup.png

Greetings HR Members,

I wanted to reach out to everyone regarding advancements with HomeRoasters (HR) development.

In its' current state, the layout of HR is a little outdated. Not to imply that the design is outdated, simply put the backend code is in regards to its' code.

I've been working to develop a new theme for everyone (you'll still have the option of the older one), and depending on feedback from users and site admins, it may very well be put forth as the main theme used at HR.

But please note, the theme is being actively developed and is not fully completed yet, you may experience issues with its layout until its fully completed.

With that being stated, head on over to your Edit Profile page and change your theme to "HR2".

forum.homeroasters.org/forum/attachments/hrchangetheme.png

Again, keep in mind its a work in progress and color, styles, and layout is subject to change.

Also, over the coming weeks I'll be steadily making improvements to the forum layout.

Lets get some feedback rolling!

Thanks.

The new layout looks very nice. More succinct, easier on the eyes and easier to scan through..

We will need the shoutbox added when you get a chance. We usually greet new members there.

I do like the colors and layout.

So many beans; so little time....

Looking good. Noticed that with default theme there isn't a post reply button underneath the last post

Keep up the great progress!

Not sure if it was just the image icon or input button? Is it visible now?

Check your edit profile page, the option should be available as "Forest_Roast".

Thanks all for the feedback!!

I like the way it visually differentiates individual posts in a thread.

Not seeing "post reply" button at the bottom of the last post in a thread using default theme. Also, not seeing quote and edit buttons

In looking more carefully, I see the options are there but are symbols instead of words for buttons. Might be helpful to keep the buttons labeled using words as before or, might be fine and only a problem with me taking a while to focus on them and understand the symbols?

Moving shoutbox back to right side will allow it to be visible without scrolling down a ways to see it. More visible.

A quick note
The site is all mashed on the home page when viewing on iPad / safari

Everything from the right side panel is currently on the left
Leaving a lot of blank space on the right until one scrolls down to the latest posts

Those are image icons for editing and posting replies, I've uploaded the original so in order to see it you may need to clear your browsers cache.

The intent was to widen the layout of the site by disabling the right side entirely. I've moved the shoutbox up closer to the top? Does this look better in your opinion? Also, I could make it a center panel as well... thoughts?

good post

Site changes for 12/24/2018:
  1. Scroll to Top button (bottom-right) - automatically scroll to top of page
  2. Primary HR2 theme has been completely recoded and optimized
  3. Site width has been increased
  4. Heavier caching algorithms, improved load times, optimizations across the board
  5. Tons of behind the scenes stuff (spam protection, optimizations, bugfixes)

You may need to clear your browsers cache, otherwise please feel free to report any issues, feedback, or suggestions.

Thanks!

Happy Holidays!!

Perhaps unrelated to this theme change, but today noticed some forum issues, so will report here:
- in active forums, icon of each thread signaling read status does not change after visiting a thread;
- my replies does not appear if visiting the thread again
these two issues above are fixed hard refreshing the page (CTRL+F5)
- a third issue that is not fixed even by clearing cache, or visiting the page as anonymous... in the thread where I posted a reply (TC4 family), my icon/avatar is now the coffee cup, copied from user who posted above me... curious to see if posting here will copy KK picture too Grin

LE: nope, I am still with coffee cup...

Opera here.

I see some of the things Renatoa mentioned above.

I notice that new posts or edits do not appear until I refresh my browser (Firefox).

This post won't appear for me until i click the browser refresh. I did clear cache earlier.

It may still be my browser. Tried reseting Firefox still not working.

I am in Microsoft edge now to test.
