Tennis4you Forum Updated!
« on: December 25, 2010, 05:34:59 PM »
The forum has been updated to the latest and greatest.  I am going to work over the weekend to clean a few things up like the old logo at the top of the forum.

If there are any features from the old version of the forum that you liked better please let me know and I will see if I can hunt them down. 
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Sweet, thanks Falcon!  I am working on updating some stuff right now.  Seriously looking into the logo at the top.  Looks like crap right now.  That will change!  Then I will also look into getting some other themes you guys can choose if you do not like this look or just want other options.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Excellent.  Just found out it will be a week or so before the dude can throw me some optional logos for the top of the forum.  It will look much nicer once he gets that done for me!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

T4Y - is there a way I can skin the website? Or this look is all we get? It's just that I prefer darker hues for backgrounds, easier on my eyes. I get migraines easily.

I will check for a darker hue skin for the website as you would have the option to use this skin or any other ones I load to the forum.  It might not be as pretty as this one with the images and all, but it will certainly work.  I will of course try to get it as nice as possible.

Okay, I'm prolly the only one who is annoyed by this. I usually have a split screen. On one side of the screen is T4U and on the other is a match or game. In the old forum, T4U justified to the browser width (half screen) so that I could view the entire page without having to scroll left and right. Can't do that now. May not affect many people, but it's too bad it's like this.

That is cool and I'd like to, but I just don't have anywhere to put the second monitor.  :(

Still no Dallas today.  :(  Looking forward to her review of the forum.

I did get an update from the guy creating the logo for the forum.  I like his direction.  Cleaner and more simple than the homepage logo.  Same text, colors and concept though.  Just borrowing and rearranging pieces.  Excited to get it up and finalized.

Still no word from the experts on the justifying text for Babs or the bold new posts.  The experts at the forum are slow and it's most likely because of the holidays.  :)

I'm here!  I just had a lot of things going on today, but I'm finally back and home so I can sit down and 'rest'.  It looks good to me Scott. Great job.  We will see if there are any 'kinks' as we use it more, but just skimming off the top - it looks great! :applause:

OK, I figured out how to make the topics bold when there is a new post in that topic.  I need to get home later before I can do it though as the files are on my home pc that need editing.

I see something else I'm not sure if you've noted Scott, but at the very top of the page where it says unread topics etc, it used to say how many unread topics there were but now it just allows you to click on it and you see the topics. Only a small thing but was something I did quite like having there.

Yeah, I looked into that earlier.  I had to add a mod with the last forum to get it to do what you liked.  When I looked into it, it was not yet provided for this version of the forum.  I have my eye on it and I am going to try something that might work on this version. 

I wondered if anyone actually used it.  :)
