Default Board Style

Postby forumadmin » 21 Oct 2014, 08:55

The new default style for our website is now Graand (Red).
If you want to change back to the previous style, go to board preferences in your profile and select subsilver2.

I guess I should give it a try and see what it looks like. I am, however, well satisfied with subsilver. I suppose it's all what one gets used to, though.

Not too bad. It's just a bit bold for my taste, but I think I'll leave it here for a while and make the decision whether to change it back or not a little later.

Well, already changed it back (Prosilver, not Subsilver). I figured out why I liked it so much; most of the other styles are oriented to the right, where the controls and buttons on each page are on the right. Since I run my browser a little bigger than the full page size, that means that every time I want to hit one of the buttons, I have to scroll to the right. In fact, I found I had to scroll to the right to read the most right-handed words.

Prosilver (and subsilver, for that matter) is oriented to the left...I don't have to scroll, just navigate from page to page, and everything is located conveniently (yes, where I'm used to it...LOL!). Too bad, really. I could get used to the Graand Red, but I'm unwilling to give up convenience.

Left vs. right hand controls aren't really an issue for me. It's just needing to shift everything to the right to access controls or read every time I change to another page. I'd really rather have everything right there without the need to shift it.
