Minor cosmetic changes to layout tomorrow

Tags:
  1. Jan 15, 2016 #1
    Tomorrow I'll be releasing a minor update to the layout. Lots of little areas have been tweaked and some colors have been altered. Functionality and layout elements remain unchanged. If you don't know what to look for you may not even notice much difference. Once the update is live feel free to leave feedback here. I'm sure I'll be tinkering plenty more as I see things I missed or need to fix. Thanks!

    Is this like putting a lipstick on a pig?

    :)

    Yup, not even opening up the lipstick, just putting the lipstick on top of a pig :biggrin:

    So I get the 2015 humour award and now I have nowhere to continue the fun :frown::frown:

    and nowhere for the general photosharing, it's gone too :frown:

    Will that require server down time?

    Nope, it will be instantaneous

    When writing a new post, the green toolbar at the top of the editor box seems to be missing the button which left, center, or right justifies text. What is there now are two buttons, on which makes a bullet list and the other which makes a numbered list.

    Can we get the justification button back?

    The LaTeX button in the editor box, and the Whiteboard are missing too.

    Also, the buttons which control the font colors and sizes are gone.

    From what I could gather, the whiteboard feature was rarely used. Did you use it? In the end the LaTeX preview button was redundant as preview accomplishes the same thing.

    Could you link me to some of your posts where you use these bbcodes effectively? It's been my feeling for awhile that these are rarely used effectively and only crowd the toolbar.

    Greg,
    Here is one of my recent posts:

    https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/hookes-law-and-plastic-materials.851527/#post-5340737

    I prefer to center images on the page; I think it looks better that way, rather than everything jammed over to the left.

    Also, since the font color and size buttons are gone, you can't do anything with the text.

    It's not like the toolbar was crowded before with buttons. As it looks now, the toolbar appears to be only half-populated.

    The codes are not gone, you can still type them in.

    Yeah, but how? Is there a link or some documentation? Or is it using Latex?
