Hey guys, I just wanted to get your opinions on the site layout and theme? Obviously it's quite... yellow, but in terms of the actual design and layout what are your thoughts? I want to make this site as enjoyable as possible to be used so would appreciate all honest feedback. Additionally, do you guys like the logo that changes every time you load a page, or would you prefer to stick with one constant image?

Thanks.

Personally, I like the simplicity. It makes for fast loading, and the colouring helps to spot what is new and what you have seen before.

There will always be members that just come and look - that's something normal with forums (fora?) but there will be those of us who participate as much as we can too... nothing you can do to the way a site looks will change that... :(

Nice that you are bothered to ask how to shape the growth of your baby... :)

Id go with the saying "if it aint broken dont fix it" and so far it seems to be working just fine. I particularly like the little update notifications - nice touch

To me content is much more important than color schemes and such. I do prefer a black on white text, rather than colored backgrounds, simply for ease of reading.

I would not worry about changing it

I am happy with it just as it is right now. I wouldn't bother changing much, if anything, until or unless some problem or other should arise.

I like the simplicity as well. And the pictures changing is just perfect, just one image would get a bit boring :wink:

Something you might consider changing though: when you click 'new posts', the text under each topic title is a bit small. Makes it hard for me to see in which forum section they have been posted. Maybe you should make the text a bit bigger, or play around with the color? Try giving it the same red color as the titles maybe? :)

I really like the layout and ease of finding what I'm looking for when I come here . Though I'm a new member . I have been able to navigate pretty easily around this site . Plus like others have said . The color is just right for the type of website it is . I wish to applaud the efforts on building and then getting this site up and running .

You have Done So Very Well :biggrin:

I like the layout - it's pretty easy to get used to, and the forums are easy to navigate. I'm honestly not sure on the colour scheme - I think it could potentially look a little more aesthetically pleasing. That's a minor point in the grand scheme of things, of course. Would there be any option to have a personal selection of themes, or does the site have to run on the same colour scheme for every user?

Thank you everyone for your positive feedback!

Members theme selection is definitely an option, and something I've already been considering. Thanks for the feedback, although what colour scheme would you have in mind?

I'm not sure on the specifics, but I quite like a dark theme with light text (i.e. black background, white text). It's only a personal preference, so obviously not everyone would agree with that sort of colour scheme. Though I guess if personal customisation became an option, that wouldn't matter!

Yes, I like the idea of a dark and a light colour scheme so people can have the best of both worlds. I'll definitely look into it!

Hey guys, just wanted to bump this old thread. Who actually feels a 2nd choice of theme would be a good idea? Let me know if you'd be in favour of having choices of designs to browse the forum. And if so, what kind of designs would you want?

Thanks.

I think an option would be a good thing.

Sure, I do agree and hope to provide you all with a choice of theme soon. :)

May be a light yellow background.

And keep everything else the same? I worry that'd be a little too yellow, but I will do some experimenting perhaps.

I'd personally like a dark theme option similar to what LetsGetQuizzical said (white and black colours inverted, and light yellow background changed to dark gold/yellow).

I do like the site's theme colour as it is, but it does strain my eyes a bit when browsing this site at certain times of the day, even on my smartphone's lowest brightness setting.

I'm guessing the dark theme option (if there is one now) is currently only available for vip members?
