    Friday 20th: Work begins on the new off-canvas navigation for mobile. It might even work for desktop too - we'll see how it goes. Some behind the scenes work on ad slot placement and coding.



    ==================



    Post your feedback and issues with the new style in this thread.

    The new style unifies our mobile and desktop themes. It is an updated version of the old style with many fixes, as well as discarding a lot of hacks introduced over the years.

    When you post an issue or observation, please let us know if you are on desktop, tablet or mobile.

    Browser and version is also useful if it is obviously a broken styling issue.


    Known issues and observations:

    Alert Pop-Up: Doesn't take you to the alerts menu when you click it. This will be fixed.
    Alerts notification bubble lags a little bit behind alert activity.

    Mobile: Some buttons are slightly out of alignment. I can see a fairly big issue with the share and Tweet buttons which we will fix.

    Mobile site menu is no longer slide-in. We tried to find something to plug in to emulate this but nothing so far.

    "Fuzzy" fonts. We will experiment with fonts.

    The Watched Threads option in the sub-nav has been moved to the left of the nav - this is so it is visible on narrow mobile widths:

    nav-narrow-mobile.PNG

    When the new mobile nav is installed, the list will change back to the old order.

    General vibe that there needs to be a little more delineation between posts - perhaps a stronger lower border line on desktop?

    "I hate it I want the old one back!" - The old style is available, but will be removed permanently soon.

    Colour palette:

    "Can we get a dark or night mode?" This is possible but not a priority. Making a sub-style that automatically inherits everything but the colour palette would be doable, and not require double maintenance for minor changes.

    The site is too "bright" or "white" - There are browser extensions that let you change to "dark" mode for any web site. We are changing some shades as we go to see response. Try adjusting your mobile phone brightness settings in the mean time.


    FIXED ISSUES

    Some buttons are greyed out on tablet. Post control animations switched off.
    The pop-out menu obscures menu options.
    Mobile font size is a couple of pixels smaller than the previous version.
    Mobile site does not show club supported in user info box.
    Mobile site shows all medals in user info box.
    Mobile site shows extra Inbox and Alerts buttons in the header even when the Inbox and Alerts options are available below.
    Trending Likes: Removed from mobile
    Watch Console: Missing in mobile.
    "Other Teams" now show in user info box.
    Club board button now goes to the proper club board.
    Various shading and styling - ongoing tests.
    Thread title returned to above quick reply box.

    "Too much blue" - Hacked around to get the forum list links to display in dark charcoal and dark blue.

    Only issue I can find. Clicking my supported club button takes me to the forums menu not the GFC hub.

    Is there a way to revert back to the previous skin?

    Was wondering if it was just me!

    Don't mind it too much, it'll take a while to get used to.

    Also, the "Other Teams" heading no longer appears in the userbox (or whatever you call the thing that displays user information next to their posts).

    Much prefer the previous look, but ah well I'll live.

    Like the above, clicking the (blurry) north icon takes me to the forum home page, not the north board. Happens on both mobile and web.

    I don't mind it though for some reason this just bothers me:

    Any chance on a slightly smaller font for the navTabs or a slightly wider accountUsername field?

    Maybe we can do something there. It won't be a priority though.

    Unless my eyes are playing up, everything looks blurry or even faded.

    The sub-forum short cut section on the left hand side now overlaps the thread window you're reading and covers people's usernames.

    This, as well as increasing the vertical padding for posts from 15px to 30px, should do the trick.

    Also, perhaps something like this to tidy up the user information?

    Is there an easy way to find threads I’m been active in (as was shown up top in the old ‘Cool’ layout)? Was much quicker to just click on the thread title...

    There doesn’t appear to be a post number (example: #140) next to posts on mobile version anymore.

    Can't see who goes for what team at a glance (android), even after clicking on their profile. Needs a fix

    I thought we'd fixed this issue. You can tap on the post to bring them up I think - check it out.

    Yep, that's the one. The one that would be on the left of this window pane where it takes you to boards/sub boards etc.
