Now to find a way to make CW theme look decent under the Ninjabytes colors in the Microcat subforum... I think that it will just be some small changes involving mostly the green background and bars, though. It also depends if Street prefers that that sub-forum simply uses extra CSS that overrides the default, but I would prefer that he doesn't use any javascript for such thing.
Nah only a minor PHP edit is required (unless smf allows loading a stylesheet for specific subforums).

It does, but I'm unsure if an entire style sheet just for a sub-forum is really worth it.

Huh, what is going on  ???
I thought we just change some colors?

Also I added some more header images to the site. Feel free to check them out ;)

Yeah the SMF feature for custom board themes involves using a different theme for said sub-forum. I wouldn't be surprised if it was possible to set the theme to load extra CSS when accessing certain sub-forums in particular, though, and make that CSS override the standard one (via the !important command?)


Also DarkestEx I like the new images. :) Only one problem, though: Image #2 is 781 KB large and #4 is a bit over 600 KB. That could be a problem for people browsing your website using mobile data plan. Perhaps those could be compressed harder or made smaller in size?

I really like the new images, and also recommend a responsive/mobile design, as the site looks bad on phones.

Still really great work :)

That's what. I'm suggesting in fact.

Yes I think that I should compress them some more. Also I might enable gzip compression for them, but I am not sure about that, though I don't think it matters on a PC with normal internet access. Does it?

Thanks :)
I am not sure if a mobile theme really is required as the site is generally nothing you want to view on a mobile device.
Its intended to be used on a PC, as I don't know what one would do with it on a PC.

I like to browse docs and source code with my phone when I'm not home (for my random research) as I don't have a laptop.

Ah I see. Well as we will publish the API documents and the app store on that site, I guess that I will look into making a mobile version of the site.

I think that I will make it either using cookies or by user agent string via php.
This way I could also send different sized images depending on what the user wants.

Other advantage : Google rankings favor sites with a responsive stylesheet.

Alright good to know.
I will certainly do it using PHP now - no JavaScript for sure.
Well its good to have it in a mobile version too regarding that I am always using the WAP2 version of CodeWalrus when I am on the go (I really like the WAP2 version, but it lacks a quote function so i always have to do it using bbcode myself).
