Important! Vote about wiki layout changes.
What kind of color scheme should we use on the wiki?

I think it's a great idea to have the layout switcher.

Tbh i think i will need time some time to get used to that bright layout, even if i advocate the change myself; i suggest people give their impression in the following days in order to improve the design if necessary.

Also we need to make a news to annouce the change of layout (and the layout switcher buttons) because not all casual visitors read in detail all forum threads.

EDIT : i used to color in orange the words or sentences i wanted to highlight, particularly in the quote block; but the orange color doesn't offer a good contrast now that the quote block is grey; that's not a criticism of the new layout, just a remark.



No contrast either for the login and username; one cannot see if he has a PM /

No problem we have a switch on the left widget.

Awesome! I love the new bright layout!!!


Here are some color codes changes for the iSearch page
background
Code

#06080b-->#e4e7ed
#0a1119-->#dad8d6
#111A24-->#a0acbc
#1F2D3F-->#CBCED6
#2D343A-->#CBCED6


color
Code
#FFFFFF-->#032764
#7c7c7c-->#000000
#E4FAFD-->#032764


and the menu and banner too. The problem with the banner is that I do not want visible borders so I'm using a very wide banner so that only visitors with really high resolution monitors will see a border, which might not be an optimal solution.

Nice work! It's nice to have a bright layout. Maybe it's just me, but light text on a dark layouts tend to hurt my eyes after a while.

You are right, there is a bug with the switcher and I'm working on fixing it.

I see no changes. iSearch is a cool feature, it could use a colored background instead of a black one.

When you come back to the gallery without clearing your cache, the albums you viewed previously are highlited in light brown color, which offers a low contrast with the grey background (see screencap).

Only Charley_dixon can make the changes, I suggest that he use the same bright colors that is now used in the default layout for the gallery, but maybe super-pink will work fine too.

I like the bright theme layout. Like a Caribbean beach with bright beige/white sands and tropical blue waters.

Sorry, I was out this weekend. I'll try to change iSearch layout in a few days.

I did not get the borders part. Why couldn't you make a gradient on the left and right sides of the banner like in the black layout? That would solve 3 problems:
1) extremely hi-res monitors;
2) contrast for login/username (mentioned by chrisdvanne in the first post on this page);
3) iSearch (I use different header and I would already switched iSearch to bright layout if I had a reasonable-width banner).

Awesome! Thanks. I changed iSearch layout, but currently it is not possible to switch back to the dark layout. I'll try to implement that tomorrow.
