New OSS Forum Theme - Call for testers and feedback
Hey everyone, as I've been frequenting this forum a lot more often recently I've felt like it was time we upgraded our theme here. With the publication of Keystone & Theme Boilerplate I went ahead and started work on a new theme here. I ended up using our developer docs as inspiration for the colour palette.
Demo & Testing
The pull request for the new theme (it's open source, just like the previous one) can be found here on our community repository.
I've copied over a redacted subset of data from this forum to my personal test site. No user information or personal data was moved in this process.
How to View It
The forum is public so just navigate over there.
If anyone wants a member role account over there to test things out please PM me and I'll send you an invitation.
I'm looking for primarily visual feedback on the new theme. What do you like, what don't you like. The following areas in particular are most important:
- The addon directory - I had to basically start over on the addon directory styles so they've definitely changed a good bit. I'm 100% familiar with all of the functionality there so if I forgot to style something please let me know.
- The general navigation - This also got shuffled around with the biggest changes being in the panel location, sticky header, and top level navigation.
- The mobile experience - I never really like the previous mobile experience so while this is already a massive improvement I think there's still a little work to do here.
I'll try to incorporate whatever feedback is given, but if I don't have the time to fix something we can make further improvements after we make the initial change. Remember this theme is open source, and anyone can make contributions via pull request over at https://github.com/vanilla/community once the initial theme is merged.
For those of you that don't feel like navigating away here's some screenshots.
