Re: Nice

Click for full size
I want to give a big thumbs down to this one. For one, the button doesn't match the format or colors of the site. Second, it looks like what people put on webpages who are just learning how to code in html. Honestly guys, very unprofessional and not up to the quality that I am used to from DSLr. The constant changes around here after months and months of a nearly perfect product are disturbing. I'm not asking to change everything back, but this hidious animated "next page" button needs to go!!!!

I'm still waiting for that PREV PAGE Justin.

PS: I am unable to view how many pages are in a forum like I used to be able to do.

I guess that damn big button is in the way..lol

Add a PREV PAGE button now!

sorry justin, but I'd have to put an *object* (oops.. wrong forum )

seems too...cheezy.

slim it down, cut out the animation, and make it work with all themes and you have yourself a good button.

OR

leave it the way it was.

It's not jazzy enough, it needs a turning signal sound everytime one of the arrow signs flash. That ought to get the users attention and show them what direction to travel.

Ack - it's still here. I thought it was just a leftover from April fools day. If it gets any bigger, it will be larger then the BroadbandReports logo in the top left of every page.

Why does it need to be an image? 1 | 2 is just text as well as 95% of all other links/nav on the site.

>> is what is used for next thread... can't that be used here instead too?

Anyone use one of those butt-ugly color themes/schemes for the forums like bright blue on black with glaring yellow bold stuff ?? How's that image look there ??

Yes, I think it's much better. It goes with the BBR look.

Nor did I make the one I posted above. They were both created by the same artist.

Much better ! I see that the page number size has been adjusted to compensate too.

Re: Nice

That's really nice now. That fits not only the coloring for the pages but the font and entire style, far better than the old one. It took some time for me to come around to realizing that the other one was really rather garish. This one is quite fitting and does justice to the site. Way to go!

Yeah, at least it's matching with something now..heh (post reply/new topic buttons)

Still not a fan of the flashing arrows, and where's my prev page button?

I feel so incomplete still

Does it matter which button I click on?
Maybe if I click on the 3rd, it should advance 3 pages?

Considering I can only skip one page at a time. Kind of a problem with this button being implemented.

cut it down to 1 or 2 blinking arrow

Click for full size
 
I agree with skj that the new grey pointer is much better, It's toned down and don't scream in your face. The first blue version was more a version you see on "hey let's put up a cool personal website". I have visited some webforums and none had that in your face pointer. This forum should be professional but fun to stay in. It's about webdesign and the first version was very bad. This new grey one is better but I find it not needed.

You could also mark up the visibility by adding some room between the row of pagenumbers in it and the listed threads and by doing that giving more visibility to the numbers below and the added pointer. Or have the background colour of the page a different shade of colour for better visability to the row of text with pagenumbers.

Is 3 arrows really needed. A test to see is to put the mouse pointer over two of the three blinking arrows and decide if you loose valuable information.

Just looking at that picture, to me makes this new feature such a slow way to change pages, you know?

I really liked:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 8.....39 >>

Much better.

Well, you could always take it this far...



In all seriousness, how about just the Fast Forward, Rewind, First Track, Last Track buttons like on a CD Player??
