I've been slowly hammering this into shape for a while; https://www.thewarpstorm.com/forum.html

There's still plenty to do though. Need to replace the header image with something more final, the logo could still do with some work, the nightstalker theme needs reworking so that it's simply a dark copy of the light theme, and plenty more besides!

Also, it looks prettier when all the forum icons are lit up! :P

That looks great. I love the forum icons and badges. Did you do them all yourself?

Kind of, but basically no if I'm being honest! The various faction images I found basic-outline svg files that people had made (for pretty much this purpose), and some of the others were based on free-to-use icons. Brought them into Photoshop and went from there. Not yet learned how to work with svg files properly, so all png for the time being.

@Iveco

Wow thats a lot of extensions, also a nice site. :plus1:

Not many forums last as long as yours, keep it up you must be doing something right.

My forum has only been going since Feb 2012 so still catching up. :-)

@Iveco - did you have to change the coding for the progress bar ext at all? Not sure if it's due to SEO (or something else) but I could never get it to work.
Also, I like what you've done!

Thanks!
@pawlshepherd
Try this readingprogress extension, I only did the general required changes (e.g. put the JS into head.ready) and did minimal changes to the calculation, because my footer is a bit longer and I didn't want to count that in, so reading progress is really just between header and last post within thread - minus the footer.

This works on FLATBOOTS

A some of that went straight over my head to be honest, but I'm sure some of the others might understand it better. Either way your file worked and the bar now displays, so thankyou! 😂

I have no idea about working with svg files either, but I downloaded some free flat icons in svg format. I found a site that will convert color svg to grey (http://www.tlhiv.org/grayscale/), so I use the colored icons for unread and the gray ones for read.
