New Style

Post by Candlelight.kk on Mon 17 Apr 2017, 10:18 am

Style-changing time again. - only this time it's not just an experiment. An announcement from our hosts today - they have added a lot of new style options to the forums. Great! .... BUT at the same time they will be dropping a number of the existing styles ... "removing" was the word used ... and unfortunately our favoured existing one is on the list. That style I am told will be "removed later today" (American time zone) ... so I thought better get me skates on and try out some of these new styles. This one (Vista Blue) is lovely - EXCEPT ... a big EXCEPT ... could do without the Samurai Design bit at the top - not really in sync with the nature of the forum. Doesn't seem to be a way to get rid of it either. Shame because I really like the rest of it. Oh well ... will just keep trying.

Oops... just noticed that Vista Blue is on the list too. Also Spring Flowers... which was my next choice.

Oh well ... back to the drawing board.

This one is called Royal Blue. Quite nice. I think will keep this one.

I love it - blue is such a zen colour.
The black was chic but didn't look very spiritual.
I didn't see the Samurai design. 侍

I like the little blue boxes with 'Newtopic', 'Postreply', 'Quote', etc.
Also the forum title box top left. At first I thought the word 'Light' was missing, then I saw that it was an actual light behind the words and it looks good.

On the other hand, perhaps it's too subtle for non-members and newbies?
My page header actually has AFTERLIFEAFTER (no spaces), so maybe LIGHT AFTER LIFE would be more attractive, Candlelight?

Every time I come on here there's Google Bot or some such already here, so I can't understand why the forum doesn't get more hits and in particular attract more members.

[I didn't know quite where to put this post as I could find a problems/comments/technical thread.]

Ooh-er... what happened?  
Two hours ago I posted and when I came back it looked like a different forum, I thought I'd gone to the wrong place.

Now the forum header is AFTERLIFE and the portal page is lilac.
Candlelight you do love to spring these little surprises, bless you.

This one won't be staying though. Although it looks nice and easy to get around, there's no place for the Portal page with this style - and other things missing as well.

More experimenting this evening.

I'll look forward to that, Candlelight.

My LAL bookmark still takes me to the 'Portal' page, even though there's no mention of it in the top bar.

I've been thinking that without the word 'Light', strangers will think this is a forum about the afterlife.

Yes, that was the problem - The Portal is still there, but no button to take you there. I have fixed that now. If you are in on the Board Index (forums) there is now a link that will take you to the Portal page.

Yes, I know ... I said I wasn't going to change the style again ... but oh, I really just can't resist experimenting. I really do like this one - the last one was great, but the board was a little bit small ... squashed things up together - and was very annoying when viewing as a guest, with not only one box for advertisements but TWO of 'em ... left me with not much room to do anything much in the space in between (to experiment with, lol).

New year - new style!

Bring back thought of the day Candlelight. Pleeeeeeeez. I miss my daily words of wisdom. Workmates miss it too. We used to fix our day around it.

That was actually replaced by the 'Daily Quote' on the Portal Page - which changes every day (though I'm not sure that anyone ever looks on the Portal Page, so probably wasn't such a good idea).

The Thought for the Day - and later Thought of the Week did form a good basis for discussion on the forum. I used to have it emailed to me each day, but can't remember the source now, not sure if I can find it again but I will have a look and maybe it would be nice to start it up again - or at least something similar.

Found it! They come from a website called Higher Awareness. I will start them up again, but make them weekly instead of daily. Will be in a new topic called FOOD FOR THOUGHT (Weekly message).

Thanks Candlelight. Food for thought, that's a nice name for it. When does the week start? Sunday or Monday?

The new weekly Food For Thought message should appear here every Sunday. Give us something to base the week on.

Changed again Candlelight. Back to my favourite. A beautiful spiritual blue.

What happened to the weekly Food For Thought? I've been watching out for it but its more like monthly food for thought. A person could die of starvation here waiting to be fed.

I WANT MY DINNER.

Hi Misty,

Yes, we're back to one of the originals. And what's good about this style is that you can change the width of it to your own personal preference (up in the bar under the header - 'Width Size').

About the Food for Thought ... I honestly didn't think anyone was actually reading it. I will be putting up one for this week ... and promise to keep it regular each week - just for you. xxx
