Firstly, if you are new to Mybb, or looking through stylesheets and templates, this is theme makes it really easy. It's so clean and highquality.
I cannot fault it's simplicity. I spent a whole day yesterday changing the colours and sliders. (Sorry can't show them off as my website logo on them).
I used their background image as a size comparison and created a simplistic background which goes very well! And I also made the theme a darker grey for the nav bar and footer matching the colours from the logo.
I lost the annoying arrow that didn't seem to move, from the nav bar and the static arrow from the footer (to keep it its simplistic goodness)
I have kinda got the style of the theme down, just hunting for any odd bits of green I may have missed. I am actually on to the more annoying bits. I am no coder, and thusly its hit and miss at this stage. I am researching and practising two things I want to implement into this template:
[*]A floating navbar. I have a lot of rescources to help me put this in, I just need to try it out, and implement it. Rather fiddly, it doesn't appear to take much to break a nav bar.
Drop down menu to go into the nav bar: OMG, the one downside to this theme, it doesn't seem to have any way to just code in a drop down menu without breaking the nav bar. Again, I have all the rescources for this. I am just worried it is all going to break on this current forum version. So my plan is to make another page and create the whole floating nav bar with a drop down function from scratch (well not form scratch, thats silly) but with use of the resources I have to hand.
So yes, its a great theme to use you can really turn it into something sweet looking. Its easy on the eye and a great clean layout. Its been a real blast playing around with it, and cannot wait ti implement it on my website. Its a hell of a lot better than my current theme!
Oh yes, and a big thanks for NSA
, helped with providing me the resources for some things, and been looking at the previews for me for feed back ^___^
At first I was wracking my head around this resource: http://www.dwuser.com/education/content/...tion-menu/
It was ok, but when I did exactly what it asked of me, it still didn't work. I also did not like the look of it.
A friend of mine linked me this: http://cssreset.com/creating-fixed-headers-with-css/
he said its simpler, but wont allow for fancy things like scrolling animations. That went over my head, I JUST needed something not so complex for me, hehe. With a lot of live editing and changing / adding random values, I finally sorted it out yay!
