Simple css tweaks to improve admin area a bit.

Fixes the menu vertical position bug, improves item readability, and makes better use of screen real estate. If you include this in the public release, please add me to the credits flie thanks.

(see files for download in post below)

You are right, the menu becomes much easier to read. However, I'm not sure that all the colour's are still matching. Maybe I should just get use to it.

Anyway, it would be great if you can continue working on it and upload the files we need to commit for the next release (image + css). We will most certainly give you full credit for the work done.

And while you are at it, if you can somehow replace that toothpaste logo with something better, please go for it.

Looking forward to your reply.

Frank

Made a few more small tweaks to the stylesheet, a stab in the dark at a logo, and a small background gradient image (put images in the public/images folder). Just throwing ideas around.

I managed to integrate jquery datatables into v2.8.x (will look at adding it to v3.0 sometime too) - was very cool, i could sort columns etc. It has ajax functionality so i thought of possibly getting forum threads to be updated to the thread list page without refreshs (or even streaming live to the page in (near) realtime).

Not bad. Is the blue background OK? Won't it look better with white or a more neutral colour?

PS: More jQuery would be cool. Looking forward to see your enhancements.

Absolutely beautiful - you've out done yourself! The new design looks stylish, modern and fresh.

The logo is OK for now, however, we need to continue looking for something unique and eye-catching.

I'll allow a couple of days for testing and tweaks before committing it.

Changes were committed as per http://fudforum.svn.sourceforge.net/fudforum/?rev=4879&view=rev

PS: The ACP now looks better than the forum. If you have time, can you please also look at the default theme?

Here's another tweak on the logo for the ACP. Attached a larger one too with a transparent bg for use elsewhere. Might need to rename to unzip - then put the header.php and favicon.ico files into your adm folder.

Removed a width="100%" attribute from adm/header.php. Not sure why useless attributes are inline, when they could be declared in css (removing all such references ultimately reduces data sent over the wire and translates to even faster page loads). That change also moves the header content to the left - by the logo.

I don't have a lot of time thesedays, but i can look at bits and pieces here and there Smile

This is an *awesome* update to the ACP - I hope you get time to apply that design sense to the main forum itself.

Wow! Shocked Frontend looks bobs_your_uncle great with the same colors! Good job! Additionally another little frontend tweak you might like to add, within the ForumBackground element in the css:

-moz-border-radius: 0.75em;
-webkit-border-radius: 0.75em;
border-radius: 0.75em;

Very Happy

Looking smooooth, very easy on the eye.

Holy smokes, what a great thing to wake up to! fudidudi, Frank, I'm not sure what you've changed besides colors, but this looks like a real face-lift. Very nice work, gents, and the happiest of New Years to you as well!
