News Regarding the New Theme

Post by Draxion on January 28th 2017, 4:01 am

Hello D&D Players,

As you all have noticed, I have completely changed the theme and design of the den -- finally! Many things are still similar and what mostly that changed was the colors, layout, and a few features added to the theme. I am going to list a few things that are going to change, be added, or tested as the days go on. Maybe even weeks depending on what changes.

Firstly, those of you who play on DoTD (Dawn of the Dragons), you may have noticed the theme layout is similar to what I use there. That is the cause in realistically speaking... it would take me months to redesign a completely new theme. DoTD took me five months to design and code it the way it is now. Since we play this on a daily basis, I didn't feel the need to close it down for months to completely come up with a new theme for the place. I didn't take everything similar to DoTD. Many widgets, codes, and displays aren't the same.

Secondly, many features were brought from there to here so we can enjoy the new version of phpbb3, including myself in the fields of coding, including new badges, the dragon companion system, a fully-developed site store and another specifically for the dragon system. Please note, none of these are related to D&D in any way; they are simply 'side' features for everyone to enjoy. Since I opened up the site everyone has been earning gold coins and as such has thousands to spare. As that result for me bringing in something for it finally, I have decided to start everyone at 500 gold coins to make it even and fair. Please give your feedback on how you feel about starting everyone at that value.

Thirdly, as with any major update to anything... bugs will be present. For that reason, please report any you find and I know many will come from those who particularly use mobile devices. I tried my hardest to rid as many as possible but some may surface as we progress on. The biggest issue from changing versions from phpbb2 to phpbb3 - as I have said many, many times - was the character sheet layouts. I worked hard with codes and changing many things to make them as similar as possible to what we had on phpbb2. Please bear with me if you have trouble viewing them on mobile devices.

Last thing! We moved from having warm colors to cooler colors and such I have changed the colors on the parties and rogue group. If you don't like your color, please suggest some and we'll have a majority vote in case some don't agree. Also, when the new features get active and going nicely, I will likely need help to manage them.

Thank you so much for your support and enjoy the new theme and future features!

It looks really amazing drax! Really well done!  cheers I agree with starting out with five hundred each. Some of us had posts so high we had over thousands of gold. I don't mind starting out with five hundred. And I can't wait till I kick your butt again.  Cheeky and I love my new color so don't take it ahahah. :.

also 500 gold is reasonable, it'll also be fun with the side features!

They appear long only on mobile devices and that is a good idea, Rose. I'll think of something.

Yes, I'll use that as a last resort if I can't find a way to display them much nicer like we had in the previous version.

Alright, I'm sure you can. Hopefully they update so it's possible.

It's mainly the code in the phpbb3 version that makes it appear like that, not their update. I just have to tweak around the code to try and make it nicely as possible.

Attention everyone! I have managed to fix that bug that prevented mobile users to click on things. I have also made some minor tweaks to increase performance.
