🐲 NEW FORUM THEME AND FEATURES 🐲
The DragonVale Community Forum has a brand new look! Since the forum’s theme and images have not been updated in many years, we were certainly overdo for a revised and refreshed appearance. Here’s a brief overview of the changes:
🔹 New banner and background images: the banner image will likely be changed to a cropped version of the current event splash screen. I’ll also periodically update the background image.
🔹 Translucent Home page: the purpose of the translucency is to allow the background image to be visible. If you hoover over or click on any board, the background will become opaque with a white container so it’s easily readable. In addition, all posts are opaque, so readability is the same as before. The translucency only appears on the Home page.
🔹 New colour palette: the header, text, and overall colour scheme has been updated and may be changed in the future to match the lead colour of the banner image or to contrast the background image.
🔹 New board and thread icons: the tediously dull file folder icons have been ditched for the marvellously adorable baby primary dragons.
• Fire = pinned thread
• Plant = open thread
• Cold = locked thread
• Air = announcement thread
• Earth = Encyclopaedia Dracontine
If you are ever unsure of what the dragon icons represent, there is a legend on the board page
Home Page Icons
• Fire = no new posts (if you’re logged in), or generic board icon (if you’re logged out)
• Lightning = new posts (must be logged in to see the new post icon)
Legend for Home page icons
NOTE: to see the images and icons, you will need to be viewing the forum in Desktop (click on Desktop in the lower right corner of the page). The mobile version does not support theme images.
This FORUM UPDATES/REQUEST thread has been created so members can provide comments, concerns, suggestions, or questions about the forum’s theme, images, and functionality. In addition, if you have any recommendations or ideas for the forum, or images for the header, background, or icons, please post your suggestions on this thread. We cannot promise every idea or image will be implemented, but they will all be considered.
Any significant new updates to the forum’s features or theme, will be posted on this thread.
