Love the new site, but theres one thing that bugs me. The enormous logo at the top doesn't take me back to the main forum page anymore. Be nice if we could link that up, instead of having to hunt for the home button. I did look at the html and I know its not just an image, but I figure we can dmake it works somehow

Thanks for creating this topic.

The logo index link bugged me as well. It was actually why I put in that home button. Now I played around with the template again... I hope it now works in all browsers, relative and absolute positioning all over the place...

Yes. Before you say it doesn't work, make sure you fully refresh the page/clear the cache

Woops, that is a lot nicer. It was weird just having a regular logo, no link anywhere. The site does look really pretty.

Thank you. It's a quality revsoft product :) .

It'd be nice if I could see what topic someone had last posed in for each specific forum on the homepage.

The logo has no link attached to it.

Code: Select all
<div id="dashboard">
...
<a title="Board index" href="./index.php"></a>
...
</div>
 

CSS wrote:#dashboard {
background: url("./styles/revsoft/theme/images/dashboard.png") no-repeat scroll center center transparent;
height: 200px;
margin: auto;
padding: 0 20px;
}


I think it's pretty clear where the problem resides. Quick fix:

Code: Select all
<div id="dashboard">
...
<a title="Board index" href="./index.php"><img alt="Revolution Software">./styles/revsoft/theme/images/dashboard.png</img></a>
...
</div>

Not sure what you mean by the logo has no link attached to it. It does, thats what the <a> tag is, and the img tag is unnecessary because of the CSS on the div with the id dashboard. What browser are you having problems in?

Yeah that might be good.

The link
Code: Select all
#site-logo a {
    display: block;
    height: 100px;
}

should work though. Try refreshing again.

I did the topic title preview. Hit Shift+F5 (force refresh in FF) again.

I know it's been mentioned, but I'd like to have signatures to be able to be displayed in posts, or perhaps an option to toggle it on/off. I also like that the revsoft pic at the top now redirects to home. :)

I always found them distracting, like little ads in between every post :P

It's mainly a way to advertise what projects you're working on, and/or it can add a bit of personalization. It doesn't necessarily need a large word limit or even the use of images. Either way is fine really, it's just a personal preference and what I've become accustomed to.

Maybe there could be something under your name to list your current projects, i dunno. I don't think i've ever really used signatures, but really i don't care either way.

I added a "Topic Starter" title under the topic starter's name, because I love it on omnimaga!

Very nice! =) It was a fairly recent addition at Omni as well.

We've also got syntax-highlighting for z80 now (I think no other forum has it at this extend)!
Code: Select all
      call  syntax_highlighting
      ld    hl, de ; hey, this only works with spasm...
      .db   "Hello World!", 0

Ah, yeah. I think those sorts of macros would be useful, especially because your code looks much cleaner that way.

More space for private message would be nice ...

For the rest, nice website, cool design. Only need more activity :)
