BattleTech Theme Questions or Errors

Please post'em here.

How about the IWM logo up with Battlecorps, CSO and CGL?

I would suggest increasing the size of the battlecorps and CSO logs to match the height of the battletech one. All of the logos on that "bar" should appear to be in the same size. Including the CGL one.

Yes I was going to suggest that. I thought maybe because it was another company, but then CSO is up there so I'm not sure why there'd be a link to CSO but not IWM.

Thank you for leaving the previous look of the forums available.   The new one had me feeling like I was looking at a geocities page.

It's about gosh-darned time that this board got a professional looking theme. A nice one at that, too.

I was able to track down the most of the remaining logos and add them to their final home, and in the process return the "upshrink" arrow so you can hide the header/news. Just click the arrow in the upper right hand corner of the forum to hide the header/news and make post replying quick and easy.

No worries.

It was pointed out that the default SMF theme makes for a great "sneak" theme while at work. So we kept the option of both themes dubbed SneakyTech 1.0 and SneakyTech 2.0.

They won't have any of the BT look, but some members might be able to run them under the radar of their evil boss overlords.

Detest it. Makes the site nearly unusable for me. Is there any way for me to set it in the old format manually?

Yes. Click on "Profile" -> "Look and Layout" -> Change Theme. The original Curve and Core are both still available.

Thanks! I'm blue-color blind and use an adjustment so that the blue forum looks different to me than most people. Whatever the new color setup is, it's screws that up and gives me a headache from the eye strain.

The new theme is predominately orange and grey, so that would definitely be a problem. Do you want some help tweaking your board to better suit your needs? PM me with some details—I may be able to help make your user experience more enjoyable.

I've got my computer already set to a fair number of things and if I adjust one, it tends to cascade. Old setting still works just fine so as long as that works, I'm good.

Gotcha.

Well, all of the old themes are still available. If you're having trouble reassigning them to your profile, let me know and I'll do it for you.

The header has IWM, MWO and MW:T smaller and higher then the rest of the other icons. Intentional?

Chrome on Win7, 64bit

EDIT: Odd, everything is just fine on my desktop running the same set-up...

Refreshing your cache should fix the odd height issue (an older logo is to blame.) The relative size of each logo has everything to do with how they resized and what originals I was given.

clearing the cache didn't do it, but restarting the computer did.
