BOARD DESIGN REDUX Sazpaimon ## Admin ## 12/05/06(Sun)03:10 No. 5739

Hey guys, as you may have noticed, the Burichan theme has changed a bit. I'm experimenting with a new layout that should hopefully be easier on the eyes.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE allow yourself time to get used to it. If you have any actual legitimate concerns about the design, bring it up here.

The box to the right of the post box is missing a bottom margin
The box to the right of the post box has a lot of empty space (I have plans for this)
The omitted posts and expand all images text are somewhat oddly placed, I'm still working on that one

Americium!Metal3G/gs 12/05/06(Sun)04:42 No. 5740

I like it. It's very minimal yet has everything required onscreen. I might change it up a bit for myself, but I like it.


Yourgay!!OxAzMwZTMv 12/05/06(Sun)04:55 No. 5741

When you are replying to a thread, the coloring the box yhat says "Posting Mode: Reply" seems a little off considering the revised color scheme. Other than that I realize it's a eork in progress, and I do like the idea of a facelift, as long as we lose no functionality that we had before. And it would be cool to see things implemented yjat are elsewhere on this board (relinking to /rs/, adding frames back, etc.) within the framework of this nee design.

Just my two cents but I really do not like this new layout. I have a fetish for minimalism and the extra indentation feels obnoxious to me. I also preferred the larger font as although posts appear more compact now they feel subjectively less "substantial".
Putting both the previous style and this new one as options would be ideal and much appreciated.
Thanks for /7ch/! It's my favourite chan.

I agree, no idea about fonts though I have my whole web experience set to use Sans 8.

If I could make a suggestion, aimed towards other minimalistic fetishes, get rid of the xbox huge new thread creation box mess and have a simple "New Thread" link that will javamagic into the new thread mess.

noticed a couple of things, on /eh/ the message boxes for starting a new thread are above the box with /eh/ - particularly uninteresting conversation, and all that stuff, not next to it as with other boards

also the banners seem a bit small, i know it's not the case with all boards as there is text in the extra space, but i found it noticeable where there was nothing.

i think the font is a little small as well, but that's not that a big deal

stay classy, /7ch/

I like the smart clean look. The less fussy it is the quicker it should run.

One suggestion though - an expand images option would be nice. Preferably one where you only expand the images in that individual post rather than the whole thread. You could put an icon to click under the >> on the left-hand side.

tSade!O9S.2cqv5k 12/05/06(Sun)18:05 No. 5755

Padding on the first post inside the border would be nice. The text is a bit too close to the left side. The replies are fine though.

I'm not so sure I like it,

though only for a few reasons

i think posts within the same thread should have no padding, and the whitespace between threads should be just a little bit less.

it seems a little too obtuse. but thats just my opinion

Nattajerk 12/05/06(Sun)22:12 No. 5760

the only thing that realy throws me off is the borders, though. kind of makes things look a little inelegant, or maybe its just because im not used to it. I can't be sure yet. perhaps the board list at the top could have its table removed anyhow.

Sazpaimon 12/05/06(Sun)22:12 No. 5761

You could always expand images by clicking the link to the file. I'm actually considering changing that to the image itself because the file link is no longer in a static position.

IMO, it feels hard to discern when one thread starts and the other ends. With this new theme the thread starting posts look like the replies, due to the box things.
Also, the text is fucking tiny in /a/. It's almost unreadable.
However, I do have to agree with putting the board's purpose in a box right next to the reply/make thread area.

I concur. There is very little to separate threads. And the text being smaller doesn't make any sense, especially in /a/.

In fact, /a/ was the first place I went after the change (not knowing about it beforehand), and I immediately switched to Futaba, just so I could read everything.

I know that people typically dislike change, but this is seriously a change for the worse. The new layout looks like shit, plain and simple. If you guys like it, at least make it an option, like >>5746 said, and don't force it on everyone. Or if you do, don't fuck with Futaba or Nigrachan. At least give us a chance to avoid this shit.

Anonymous 12/05/07(Mon)11:14 No. 5777

How about swapping the time/date/thread number and the buttons/reply? That way the useful shit is right there in the middle and the reference stuff is off to the side. Your layout style is kept intact but the information / tools are arranged in a more useful way.

Anonymous 12/05/07(Mon)14:07 No. 5778

I am not a fan of this new visual style. At least make it so that the divs conform to the size of the text in the post. I've got a 30" monitor and they are sooooo wide. Also, I think the margins and indentations are too big.

>Good try, but sorry, I'm not impressed.

Please give me more information, like, browser, OS, etc. The proper layout is with the posting box and box with the board name being side-by side. If you're getting that, something is not right.

Gentoo & Firefox built from 12.0 source.
I know where it should be because sometimes it is there, rest of the time as soon as I load the page up it is there then instantly flashes down below.

Also, it is fine on Mozilla-Central (git) I just built this morning though.. so I would assume it's not my firefox settings or compile options (even though it only seems to be me getting it) buggering something up, I also tried fresh profiles with no add-ons and got the same result with both browsers.

Hopefully the layout should be fixed for you.

I also increased the font size a bit, and fixed the tiny font in /a/ as well. I also moved the board header information into that box to give it some more content.

While the new layout looks pretty great and helps me keep followed threads organized, it seems that this layout does not work with the now-abandonware "Anonyma" application for iOS, which allows browsing and posting on this site as well as other chan-forums, etc.

Yes, it's an obscure issue, but the fix might be as simple as changing some class names, and it would help me a great deal. I'll try to find a solution, if one exists.

>you can now expand images by clicking them
Why would you change that? What was wrong with having just the link? Was there a problem that warranted the change? You had two different functions tied to the same action- one click to open, one click to preview. Elegant as fuck, probably the simplest way to do that kind of thing. Now you have this clunky double click shit.

The change is annoying because when I go through a thread, sometimes I will use the mouse wheel to click the images into other tabs. It was fast and easy. Perfect for reading comics or viewing sequences. When I click them with the mouse wheel now, I get a page stretching surprise and then I remember that you changed the function for apparently no reason.

Anonymous 12/05/08(Tue)16:48 No. 5809

Oh, so it's supposed to open in a new tab when you click with the wheel? That's not happening for me.

I'm using Chrome on 7 Ultimate.

Sazpaimon 12/05/08(Tue)17:14 No. 5810

3 reasons really:
1. The old way was surprisingly not well known. I've found myself, on numerous occasions, telling users of this functionality.
2. It brings the feature in line with other popular imageboards.
3. The new skin left the image info area in a non-static position, so if one wanted to quickly expand and then shrink an image, it would require a mouse movement.

It should be noted, that middle clicking images to open them in a new tab still works normally. The double click is mostly for users without a middle click button (like laptop users).

Anonymous 12/05/08(Tue)17:19 No. 5811

I understand, that makes sense. What I found was that the middle click doesn't work in chrome. Or at least, it doesn't work for me in chrome.

Sazpaimon 12/05/08(Tue)17:54 No. 5812

You're right. I did some research and found out that it's actually a Webkit bug from years ago (ref: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22382 ). I went ahead and hopefully fixed it.

Okay, let me rephrase:

The new interface looks better than not having an interface, and I like that the threads are separated by squares.

There was nothing "good" about the old look, anyway. People just got used to it, just as they will with whatever happens here.

Anonymous 12/05/09(Wed)05:43 No. 5817

No, you like the shitty "interface". It isn't better than the old one, it is infact worse.
Asthetically there was not one single fucking reason to change it.
Threads are not seperated by boxes (which by the way would look even fucking worse), they are still seperated only by lines. The posts are all boxed, which also looks cluttered and shitty. Boxing fucking everything is a stupid ass thing to do. You want to add new features to the sites design? Fine. But don't go fucking up the entire site just because you want to be a faggot and make everything look different.

Sir, this thread is for legitimate complaints, not bitching about change.

As far as legitimate concerns go, it's unusual to me that the 'expand image' link that I've grown so fond of now has the exact same purpose as actually clicking on the image.

Why not swap the functions? Instead of clicking on the image to go to the file, you click on the link, that way you don't have two links doing the exact same thing right next to each other.

Sazpaimon 12/05/10(Thu)00:19 No. 5824

The reason why the file link still expands is purely for transitional purposes. Once enough time has gone by whereby people are acclimated to the new location of the function, it will be removed.

Anonymous 12/05/10(Thu)02:03 No. 5825

For what it's worth, I approve of the changes. I generally only use a fairly old Acer laptop and some of the old bugs I was getting seem so be fixed now.

Nothing I have seen so far. However is there anyway we could be able to embed for more sites (Redtube, Hulu, dailymotion, etc.) . More themes (which you mentioned earlier.

Suggestion, pic related. Slightly better use of space when there is a "large" list?
Or perhaps possible, if the info box is rather long, the posting form can be centred vertically to make it at least seem like less empty space?

Also, not sure if any others but /gfx/ still uses the old title up top rather then the info box.

While navigating a board, I get the feeling that there aren't enough visual cues showing that a post is part of a thread. I get that the idea behind the design is to highlight the OP, but as it is now, it looks like the OP and the rest of the posts are entirely separate entities. Maybe it would help to make the line separating threads more visually striking.

Sazpaimon 12/05/12(Sat)09:16 No. 5842

I made the divider a bit more visible around the edges, let me know if that's any better.

Also, new stuff:
The rules area is now tabbed, and the watched threads, style selector, and post spy toggle are now there.
Watched threads are also smarter, and will show watched threads across the entire site, rather than the board you're currently viewing. The tab's title will also update with the number of new posts, among other things.
"Expand all images" is now a button on the right of the OP header.

It looks okay, but the expanding image thing is really irritating. I saw there was some bug with wheel-clicking and tabs, but whenever I Ctrl-click it still expands it. And not only is it a huge blurry mess when I first open it (which kills any deesire I have to look at the image), but since I'm on a laptop with a small resolution there is no convenient way to look at anything without having to scroll around a lot.

I usually open images up and then look at them all later anyway, so this is pretty off-putting. Could you at least fix Ctrl-click opening up the pics in a new tab, if you could fix wheel-clicking??

My only complaint is with pictures that are way too large for my computer screen. It would be nice to have a page where it shows just the image which automatically fits the picture in the screen. I've noticed that clicking both the thumbnail and the filename both enlarge the pic. I think one of them should open a new tab with just the image. Idk. Some images are just practically impossible to view correctly at such high resolutions so multiple viewing options would be nice.

Again, the filename expand function will eventually go away once people figure out the new method. You can still middle click the thumbnail, and also double click it, to open in a new tab.

It's natural, it grows out of the ground.
