Yeah no that's fine, I don't want a rainbow :)

I suppose the main thing I'd like to change is the yellowy orange colour of the boards and overall outline.  And just need to make sure that whatever that is, the text on them is sufficiently contrasting and easy to read.

I did try to make the colour like the background on the commando site, what colour would you like?



this is the background colour of the commando site

LandyVlad

Yeah I appreciate that mate, but that's not any colour especially associated with the comics as far as I can tell.
Leave it with me I'll give some thought to colour. Cheers & Thanks

As far as category colours etc are concerned, perhaps greens lifted from the wing in this image ?

And in the footer where it reads
"This site is not endorsed by commandocomics.com"


change to "This site is not endorsed by DC Thomson or commandocomics.com"

That green really looks great.
I note that overall it's still surrounded by and orange outline, and wondering if that was intentional.

What about the block at the bottom with the forum stats, users online etc which is outlined in red?
Does that need changing in the theme, or is it a TP block which just needs to be set to match the theme colours.

I note that the menu items don't change when hovered over. Was that intentional?  By way of comparison what you did with https://www.droneflightforum.com/index.php?action=forum for comparison.

The text colour orange doesn't seem to 'fit' any more - maybe a blue colour snaffled from this:

be it the greyer blue from the wing or from the roundel, or the darker blue of the title

Just throwing it out there.

Oh and as a discussion point do you think that the 
This site is not endorsed by DC Thomson or commandocomics.com" ought to be in bold? I'm not sure.

Lastly (for now) something to consider for yourself where you have Comics, by Lesmond that might suggest the comics themselves. Maybe Comics Theme, by Lesmond. Or Theme by Lesmond or...
Is there a reason 'Comics' is bolded?
Anyway that's all your call, you are the one putting in the hard yards.. I'm just the guy being a pain in the arse asking for things for free.  :D  :vcool

Made a few more changes, see how you like it now.

Also the menu was a new idea I was trying out, I liked it myself, but I have added rollovers to it now.

Let me know.

Yep looks good mate.

Menu wise I like the style of the SMFH menu a bit better - it looks a tad less 'generic'.


A question about the bottom.

Is it possible to have JUST "This site is not endorsed by DC Thomson or commandocomics.com" in bold and the remainder of the footer in normal (not bold) text ?  The idea is to make that particular line stand out without resorting to gaudy colours.


And not sure if it's a theme issue or entirely separate but if the former, can the top bar (where messages and alerts etc are) be made to be fixed in place like here on SMFH ?

Might be me, an age thing,  :o  but there's a imo a bit to much transparency going on in this theme, it does my head in a little when scrolling lol..

The rotating header, what's the reason for it hanging over each side of the main content area, would it not be better to be full width, or at least equal width to the main content.  It sort of looks like it doesn't fit properly, I'm guessing the reason is because there's no radius on the bottom corners of the header.

lesmond

I agree too much transparency, I have removed it all and made the background all white, so that also makes the header line up better too.

Les, that was only me thinking aloud, of course @LandyVlad Might actually like it as was.

lurkalot

Forgot to say Les.  To me that looks much better, the header is still hanging off the sides, but the general look is much easier on the eyes.  There's a slight padding issue in IE11 with the footer text touching the bottom border, bit apart from that.  :rgton
