We are pleased to have launched our first proper visual theme for TheatreBoard which we hope you agree brings an attractive new look to the forums. We have tested it over a number of browsers and systems and hope that it works well for everyone. However, comments are welcome in the feedback area.
If you don't see the new theme then go into Profile (top menu), Edit Profile (button on the right), Settings (tab at the top) and select TheatreBoard Standard as the forum theme, then scroll down to the bottom of the page and select Save Account Settings.
Thank you for the feedback provided regarding our new forum design. Thanks to the hard work of andy614, we are pleased to be implementing a number of changes:
- Improved top banner (better support for wide-screen monitors) - Faded icons on inactive forums, to emphasise those with new postings - Changed colours for links and headings - Changed colours from pagination controls to blue from green - Added 'likes' count on profile summary pages
We hope that you find these changes helpful. Please keep the feedback coming - we will continue to make further adjustments and improvements.
Following further useful feedback and additional development work, we are pleased to have implemented a further update to the design and functionality of TheatreBoard. This includes:
- Button added to navigation bar to show threads with recent posts - Pagination controls added to bottom of thread list to match posting list - Return to board button added to bottom of thread - Darker text on thread and related titles to improve visibility - Minor adjustments to banner - The [NEW] icon now displays correctly on mobile view - Separator line added to display of sticky threads/announcements - Tidy of buttons in editing tool - Spoiler button added to editor to allow easy insertion of spoilers - Quote tool (highlight text in posting to access) to make quotes easier
Also released earlier today was a change to the 'member rankings' scheme to simplify the number of levels and reduce the posts required before a user becomes a full member of the forum.
We hope you find these changes helpful - and please let us have any further feedback you may have.
Today we've implemented a change to the design/functionality of TheatreBoard:
- Altered the icons against threads and boards so that they are now clickable. This means that we've removed the tiny black icons against threads that were hard to click on accurately, particularly on tablets. You can now click on the square [NEW] icon against a thread to be taken to the most recently read posting. Accordingly, the same icons are now used for boards and threads.
- At the same time we've added some very minor changes to help with finding us through search engines.
We hope this update is helpful. As ever, please let us have any feedback you might have.
We have today implemented some further minor changes to TheatreBoard: - Added new smileys (available from the smiley menu in the editor). - Given its lack of use, we have removed the calendar tool and moved the "This week I am going to see..." thread back into the general forum. - Moved the Competitions board into the forum information area. - Altered descriptions against TheatreBoard staff to better reflect our team approach.
We hope you find these changes helpful, or at the very least, not a hindrance! If you have any comments or suggestions for improvements to TheatreBoard, please let us know here.
We've made a couple of small changes. Following feedback about edits being made so long after the original post that replies or further discussion is thrown out of context, members will no longer have the ability to delete a post, and the ability to edit a post will expire after 45 minutes.
If you need to delete a post you can edit to remove all of the text.
If the edit time limit has expired just contact an admin team member who will be happy to help.
For technical reasons we've temporarily disabled the automatic embedding of videos. We hope to bring this feature back at some point in the future. In the meantime clicking the link will take you off-site to view the video.
