[Forum] Swap "new messages"/"no new messages" images.
#1
I don't know, what the theme author was thinking, but the white "no new messages" indicator on an overall dark forum background stands out like sore thumb.

Agreed, and I already mentioned it in the feedback thread.
Here: http://hazeron.com/mybb/showthread.php?tid=17

I actually had a fun idea about replacing the current indicators with icons from the game.
Maybe the sector icon ([Image: 347468357538152449.png]), and then add the distress mark ([Image: 364491498508517378.png]) to it when there are new posts.

I also agree. After taking some time searching for how to make that change, I gave up.

Looked around a little bit and found where the status icon is computed:
http://hazeron.com/mybb/cache/themes/theme3/global.css
Code:
.forum_status {
height: 30px;
width: 30px;
background: url(../../../images/forum_icon_sprite.png) no-repeat 0 0;
display: inline-block;
}

I think it would be best to make a new theme with necessary changes.
Anybody up for a challenge?

Yeah I agree.
But I have no idea how to do that, apart from drawing icons in Paint.Net.

I downloaded the current theme. It only contains the single XML file with CSS and some HTML code, no images.
I think I'll try my hand.

Might be a better idea to use the default MyBB theme. Since the one Haxus installed has a few bugs.

Shame this isn't XenForo. Would have been able to make that change in 2 seconds. And I know of a very good, and flexible theme for that forum software. Tongue

Actually did make an XenForo forum for another community a little back. Think it turned out pretty well.
But unfortunately, that forum isn't free. :/

It was more than 2 seconds due to very bad source formatting. Lots of bad whitespace stuff that had to be fixed before diffs became stable enough to read.

It ONLY swaps around these two sprites, locked and redirection topics were not changed. Though, they are not of concern ATM.

Umm, which bugs? Generally, it's just totally unusable for me. Each post takes almost entire screen, with decorations being 90% of that space. Hard to find bugs in such lush environment.
