fschmidt, this can be an alternative. It covers some of the ideas we discussed.

Drealm, can you move this thread to "Old Topics"?  I want my Nabble partner, Hugo, to see it.

I left the border because it looks odd without the border.  Does it look okay now?

There are still a lot of things I would change. Some of which you may or may not want. I'll list them below and you can decide.





1. Increase white area row height to 50px. It was previously 49. With the new update it is now 37.

2. I think it looks odd without border because there's not sufficient buffering on side. I could be wrong. If I was to do it without a border I would require 75px buffering on side. Right now you only have 11px buffering.

3. Move "Topic View", "People", "Options" to upper right corner. I would actually eliminate topic view but I don't use it.

4. Rename "New Topic" to "Make New Topic".

5. Rename "Sub-Forums & Topics (XXX)" to "Topics". Left align "Topics".

6. Make buffering between sub-header and search 50px.

7. Make Buffering between search and column title (views) 50px.

8. Allow unlimited threads per page. When this is enabled eliminate page numbers.

9. Make buffering between "Make New Topic" and "Topics" 50px.

10. Make buffering space between left aligned "Last Post" column and "Replies" 50px.

11. Change unread/read color to effect whole row.

12. Make "unread" color current blue.

13. Make "read" color current gray.

14. Eliminate "maroon" read color.

15. Eliminate "folder pin" icon. Make "folder pin" and "pin" use same icon. Icon can just be a filled circle. You can have blue for "unread" and gray for "read". You can distinguish a pin from a sub forum by the (XX Topics) bracket. Here are two graphics if you want them:




16. Eliminate line above column titles (Topics, Replies, Last Post, Views)

Hugo and I made those changes that are easy.  I am not comfortable with changing the link colors to something nonstandard because users may not realize that they are links.  So what do you think now?

This is good. Let's sit on it for a bit and see if anything bothers us. We can always revert it. I appreciate you and Hugo doing this.
