NEW control panel theme!

Post by kraze » Sat Jul 05, 2014 10:30 pm

Over the past few months we've been hard at work developing a new control panel theme for our customers. We've reached a point in development where an open beta is needed to track down the few remaining bugs, and to get overall feedback on the design. There are no new features, this is purely a cosmetic change. You can change to the via the "My account" tab in your control panel. It is titled "simple". Any feedback or suggestions should be posted here.

Here is an idea of what the new theme looks like.

I'll certainly be using this theme from now on, nice work! I don't see any visual flaws right now, but I'll post if I do see any.

I love the theme, very nice work!

However, I see that you're using Imgur to host at least some of the icons (if not all of the new ones). I assume this is temporary? Have you also considered using Font Awesome?

Eventually they will be moved locally. I have not heard of Font Awesome, but it's something I can look into.

Looks good, going to change over in a sec. I have always liked the white theme over the red one, and this looks like like a nice upgrade from the older white based theme.

Been using this theme since release, the only cosmetic issue I have seen is highlighting on dropdown menus. Sometimes the blue highlight will not move on dropdown menus. You can still click all options in the dropdown, the highlighting just won't move. This happens more often than not for me.

I would really appreciate a dark version of the simple theme. Something dark grey, not black. I don't really like the red theme.

That's an issue I'm aware of, just haven't had time to really sit down and investigate it. I'll try to put some time away this weekend to look into it.

Eventually more themes will be added, but my next goal was to work towards a much more fluid and flexible theme once additional access is provided.

Any chance you can change the imgur links to https instead of http so I can see that nice green padlock when using the cp? :)

I have also been using this theme since release, and going back to the older ones makes me wonder why they are still default. Any chance this will be changed to be the default theme?

That's a big oversight on my part. I'll need to get those changed out. As for making it the default, I would not expect it to become the default :/

I think this theme is a bit too bright.

Thanks for the feedback. The overall idea of this theme was to be very clean, simple and professional looking. Unfortunately, this almost always means white :/ Eventually, I'd like to implement or more game themed style along with additional features, but that's a ways off.

If you or anyone else has any suggestions or additional feedback, please let me know!
