That's very cool. You did a good job on that man. Nicely done. :rgton

LandyVlad

Thank you!  I'll give it a go in the next few days.

The only issue that jumps out from the screen shot is the lack of contrast bnetween the logo, and the blue sky background...   If I didn't want to change either is there any 'solution' ?

maybe a white border would look better?

Hmm for some reason, in MS Edge, those images don't magnify when I click 'em. Or at least one did (the new one) but only once - now it won't.


In any event that does look clearer I think.

Let me install the theme when I get a chance and then I'll make a call on it. Ta.


BTW are themes installed just like any mod or by some other means?

You install themes via, Admin > Configuration > Themes and Layout > Manage and Install.

Don't use the package manager.  ;) 

LandyVlad

Yeah just saw that. Cheers

Why do I so often lately find myself telling myself "You're a dick!" ?

OK - installed ! :)

That does look good but perhaps the white is too dazzling ?

(as you've made the image file though I'd love a copy.)

Is the current logo outlined in black or blue? I think black might work as a delineator as long as its as thick as that white outline..?

As far as the theme goes its great - certainly a great start to build on. I'm thinking that the blue used (in header bars) is a touch too bright, maybe needs to be a bit darker? I'll give it some thought.

Also I think the default text colour, rather than the lighter blue is easier to read.
(The default seems like a dark blue maybe?)

@lesmond PLEASE don't think I'm being overly critical, and naturally give up on me any time you like :) but I am a bit of a perfectionist once I get going.... .

I'm extremely grateful for everything you've done to date.

Is the theme SMF version 2.1 RC2 compatibility issue noted by Ronald in the coffee theme thread likely to be a problem for the drone theme too?

If so any chance of a change?  Ta mate.
