Luna 1.2: Meet Sixteen

Hey everybody,

Today's change to the board will not go unnoticed. As you can see, our theme has changed. We're now using Sixteen, the default theme for Luna 1.2 and future versions troughout 2016. As ModernBB users will notice, this design is very similar to the old Random style. Todays update is still a very early version of the theme and you will find a lot of visual errors and glitches. We're as of writing this post on build 4859.

I invite all of you to go look arround for what has changed. However, I would like to close off with a list of things that are not working or are bugged:

  • Thread labels are broken (pinned, solved, moved, closed)
  • The post and edit page have out-of-band heading
  • Help, Search and some other pages have malfunctioning headings
  • Accent colors are broken
  • The profile sidebar is inconsistent in showing name and title and also to small for some screen formats
  • Inbox is partialy broken

These are issues we'll try to resolve quickly in future updates to our nightly branch. Nightly users are also receiving Luna 1.2.4859 at this point which includes the same version of Sixteen as we're using on the board here.

Sixteen is, however, not ment to be a simple port of Random for Luna. While it now still looks quiet the same, this will change in the future as we start to redesign elements of the interface. These changes include - but are not limited to - a new orange-purple default colorscheme (the current blue colorscheme will become one of the accents, circular avatars everywhere, a general more colorful look and more.

Have fun and say what you want about Sixteen here. We'll keep this topic up-to-date on the latest improvements and fixes as we push them to the board. I hope this is a nice kickoff after our hiatusses.

Best regards,
Yannick

I've just pushed build 4867 to fix three of the mentioned issues and other small changes.

Edit:
I've just pushed another update. This update revamps the profile card in the Profile area and makes use of circular avatars across the whole board. Also, the default width and height for your avatars has been increased to 128 pixels (which is the new default) and the size has been increased to 30720, also a new default.

We've just updated the theme once more, this time with a new navbar and an improved index view, there is also an indication now when a forum or post have a new comment.

As said, I'm planning to change quiet a lot about the look and feel of this theme. While the general structure will remain similar to Random, the default color pallet and element design will change.

Hey I just saw the indication of this new post! Works perfectly  🙂

Just two things: The users online and smiley boxes don't show their content properly.

Ouh and two more.

This looks quite funny. 'Wanna change the blue accent to a more blue version or maybe you like this other blue one?'  😄

There should be the same gap as between categories

The accent issue is pointed out in the SP, the others are also known issues and they are to be expected in this early version. 🙂 My local version is starting to look quiet nicely. I wan't to finish the updated design before updating the board to another preview build before fixing everything and making the accents and night mode work again.

I've just pushed another update - build 4895 - which comes with, and I think it's quiet obvious, more reworked design elements. We've added the new colorscheme and it should be the default now. This new red-purple scheme is the default color scheme for Trent, the CSS framework we're basing this style on, also made by Studio 384 (though not to be confused with the previous Trent UI Framework we are still using in the Backstage).

Anyway, this update is mainly a visual update, however, it also brings some fixes along the way. These are mainly for people that develop styles, working on a new, totally different style from Fifteen has also brought up ideas to extend some functions that are available to developers. More changes and fixes will be coming soon.

Next up is a button redesign and editor update.

For another note, when the major work on Sixteen is done, the next feature that will be implemented is "Mark as solved". The Help-page has some information on this feature already.

    height: 45px; /* need for "no login" */
}

Perhaps it would be better?
Or not...

As mentioned, the buttons are up next. I've just pushed some changes to the editor and fixed the emoticon dropdown to the repo. These changes are now also in effect on the board and already come with small cosmetic changes to the buttons.

Another update. We've updated the buttons in this build - 4908 - and also changed some small thing in the profile. Further, the search page has been updated with an improved design and we've made the first steps for "Mark as solved". Next update will take care of profile cards in the topic view and the 2 other accent colors.

Will there be a sunrise-ish theme for sixteen that has the looks of fifteen with the newest topics on the home page?

And please add code for all page:

html {
    overflow-y: scroll;
}

Because browsers Chrome and Firefox need this code.

On mobile devices, there is a horizontal scroll bar.
On the right is an empty place.

Known issue, but thanks for reporting.

Preview 2 won't include many improvements to Sixteen, as I currently focussing on adding features and fixing bugs in the core itself. Preview 3 will probably bring  a couple changes and finishing touches to Sixteen.

How you tell me "Sign-up isn't even broken" when you never tested it? I told you before with mail that when I lost my password, I tried to sign up but I never couldn't do it, And another thing, Look at the statics bar at the bottom, It about a month I can just see "renick" is the newest user, Doesn't it suspicious?  🙂

It seems like if I try to register, I never get the email with the password.

I can confirm this. Got no Email.

And the sentence "We've got us a situation here" in this context seems a bit strange.

Sorry, Rolfo, Can you upload your image in another server? This website is not accessible in Iran, Exactly, I mean that nobody can register in this forum at all, but Yannick doesn't believe it!

It's just the page that thanks you for registering, tells you to check your email, and to email Yannick if you don't get the email.

Renick has been registered a week ago, not "a month". Our usercount simply doesn't add up that quickly.

As I've said before, registration isn't broken. You're perfectly able to register.

It's a generic heading, perhaps indeed it should be something else.

I uploaded it on imgur. Hope this is accessible in Iran.

I don't think that Yannick does not believe you - he maybe just couldn't reproduce this issue for himself. Also it is not true, that the registration of users doesn't work. You can register, and an account is created (tested it on my server - it works). But if the admin wants you to activate your account first with an email and sets the respective options you can't, because you aren't getting the email.

So it seems, that sending the registration email is not working correctly?

It indeed does not and I am able to reproduce the issue, but it is not a big in the registration. It works fine. It's the way Luna handles mails that's broken.

Yannick ,I can promise you registration works but mail address will not work! and Yes I was think it's a long time renick is signed up, and I was wrong, but just think, In a week, nobody will sign up when your forum before this was have 453 users?
