 AdminCP CSS Reskinned
#
I decided to reskin the ACP stylesheet using the "IPB Alt" style, or also known as IPB Alpha style in the Skin Importer. I'm giving you guys a sneak peek. Please note, all I have done here is reskin the CSS to make things look cleaner and nicer; this is not a "revamp" of the AdminCP and this isn't a thread to discuss that. I would just like some feedback on the style itself since I feel this looks more "modern."

Here's how you can try out the skin on your own forums. Go to your AdminCP, but don't login. On the end of the URL in the top bar, enter this:

?newskin=1

Your link will look kind of like this:

http://forum.jcink.com/admin.php?newskin=1

Visit it; and the new skin will be applied. Login and check out the change.

Let me know what you think! smile.gif

Looks good to me. The jcink.com image looks messed up, but otherwise I think it looks good.

Cool, thanks. That's weird, it looks clearer from my end. That one looks really crumpled. I'll have to get that checked out. You use IE right?

The current look isn't bad at all; this just looks more updated and was relatively easy to do.

I was thinking of changing the text to black as well, I may try that later, thanks.

As for the blue bar... not a lot I can say there, maybe it's just the bar change that looks odd to you. The new one is definitely more vibrant.

In any case I do plan to make this a default once it's cleaned up and tweaked, but there will be the option to revert back or change between the two.

I have to admit I prefer it currently. I'm really not a fan of the IPB Alt stylesheet, it looks kinda dated to me, a style that's faded out recently and it just doesn't stand up well itself. Will there be an option to revert the CSS? Or is this a board update to stay?

Why do people feel the need to copyright codes in a way that prevents further editing. As long as the copyright remains intact your work is noted; allowing further editing/release spreads your name as a coder further and creates greater possibilities from something you created - that cannot be a bad thing. Next time you release a code, allow it to be modified and I won't set my zombie minions upon your cookie stash user posted image

But, if the feedback for it here is that bad on it, I won't add it at all. Seems like it's half and half right now.

And I'll half agree that yeah; this is still an old style. But it's not like the default 1.3 one isn't dated either. I'd say it's even more dated than that. This alpha edition was the final "upgrade" to the base 1.3 skin. This one looks more like earlier attempts at Web 2.0 since it was created around the end of 2005 I think. At least it's something "new" in a sense that I could the design and apply it to that interface without it looking so far out of it's time. Besides, an eventual rehaul of the ACP is planned anyway, but I wanted to do this to just hold people over, and because the 1.3 style is getting really old.

Until now...I didn't notice it. Now that I look at it... It's very clean/sleek and professional looking.
I like it. Thanks, bud.

Agreed, but right now that's not coming. I don't think I want to give people that ability considering it will be revamped someday.
