Forums Visual Overhaul
Hi, we're currently working on visual overhaul for forums and would like to gather some of your thoughts / showcase what we've got so far.
This thread (and this post in particular) will be receiving updates as we add more stuff.

You can also try it yourself by enabling "Modern" forum skin in User CP options: https://forum.toribash.com/profile.php?do=editoptions

Base theme will be dark but we'll also be making a light one based on it once it's finished.
You'll still be able to use current default styling (forums only) if you wish.

Some misc info:
- New visuals are built with Bootstrap.
- All pages scale accordingly to your device screen size. On some pages, that would also hide less important information for devices with smaller screens (see screenshots below).
- Fonts we use are Roboto, Roboto Condensed for top navigation and Badaboom.
- We want to bring back post voting/rating system.
- Search is now available for all users who can make posts.
- Social groups and Competitions modules have been disabled due to their redundancy.

Forum Home



Board view



Thread view



Member.php



User CP




Some details on breadcrumbs:
Breadcrumbs (top dark bar with "Toribash Community / Toribash / ..." text) is always visible and will stick to top of your screen both in desktop and mobile mode. In mobile, it's also used to hold a button to open main navigation menu.
Quick search will search for threads or posts within forum section, board or thread you're currently viewing. For example, searching "Overhaul" from forum home, News board and this thread will give you three different results. If you want to apply custom search settings, choose "Advanced search" option from the right breadcrumbs dropdown menu. When viewing user's page (member.php), it will search for the user under specified name.

also, is there any work about versions for smartphones? Sometimes it's pretty insane to use forum via phone browser
For ez navigation and etc (maybe an android/ios app, yeah)

I've just thought of something and it is the clan pages... some clans has their page color to look black or white, I'm not sure how this is going to work out perfectly with the new forum style while color clan page color being a thing but I wish sir good luck on thinking on how to make this relevant.

Yeah it looks good, personally I don't really care what it looks like but it would be nice to fix some of the navigation. Some stuff can be hard to find and figure out for brand new people, like the user control panel, or the market, or how to activate items. I'm not sure how much of this can be ironed out with just a remodel and how much is deeper issues but I'm on board, looks cool.

I know these are already on the agenda but I guess my redundant response is better than no response.
