I can barely read the pale green text against a white, much less a dark background.

The other changes seem fine - though it is odd that Ask iTulip is Select Premium members only for posting...

Appreciate your feedbacks.

2. New iTulip forum style/color theme -
We are still working (hard) on customizing our new forum and its' appearance. It's not a "finished" product as yet. Please bare with us...

3. "Ask iTulip" - it's not a Select Premium forum but public Feature forum (http://www.itulip.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?40-Ask-iTulip).

What do the red and blue envelopes mean beside posts on the New Post list page?

I'd like larger fonts in the body text of the posts.

Please make the name of the poster (appearing at the top right of each post) appear larger . . . by either bolding it and/or a larger font.
(Was fixed-- now unfixed. Learning curve.)

c1ue -- your poll posting is borked. I see a couple of botched http://poll.learnmyself.com links, and if I click on either Vote or Results, I get to a 404 Error from itulip.com for some bogus link such as "http://www.itulip.com/forums/%3Ca%20href=?qp_b43428=Results"

Also, as I stated in my a thread I started, quotes are being italicized whether one wants them to or not. Plays havoc with the look and feel of the post.

Also green lettering on Yellow/beige does not work.

Might I recommend that the "New Post" icon be changed back to orange or at least a darker blue. Currently a read post has an icon that is white and a new one is baby blue, but the old white/orange system offered better contrast in my opinion.

I'm referring to the icon located near the date on each individual post, not in the Hybrid View.

Have any one of you tried to place a graphic or a picture?

Everything I tried to place was the size of a postage stamp.

About an eighth of your graphic in size.

D-Mack, you got juice :cool:

Yes, larger fonts. PLEASE! I'm going blind.

Color scheme is not as easy on the eyes as the old one.... Makes everything blend together.... Hard to read. Everything seems "fluffy" with these pastel colors, light green, light pink, result: everything blends together.....

FRED

That should be easy, but it's not!

See this (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?341499-HOW-DO-I-change-the-default-FONT-SIZE-for-ALL-POSTS). Tried it, doesn't work! Still trying.

The new vB software makes everything look more fluffy, icons, colors, you name it. I run a rather small forum (www.dailyjava.net (http://www.dailyjava.net)) and believe me, there are SOOOO many places to change things like colors etc it is rather difficult to get it all to work right. My forum mainly exists to support Charles Smith of OfTwoMinds Blog...

Hmm... something isn't making sense to me here.

I suspect you're right, but on the other hand, if one does a Google search for <a href="http://www.google.com/search?q=vbulletin+4+skins">vbulletin 4 skins</a>, one finds a variety of sources for vBulletin skins with various looks (color, font, icons, ...) The off-the-shelf ones are free or perhaps $20 to $40 -- cheap. Style sheets (CSS) and template support are supposed to be major features of vBulletin 4, and this sort of flexibility should be a benefit from such technology.

Ooops.

Name of poster has returned to unbolded, and now the status is bolded.

I guess they are still working on it . . . .

I guess they are still working on it . . . .As we speak apparently. When I refreshed this page (previously loaded a few hours ago) the font jumped up in size a point or two. <big><big>BIG FAT FONT :D.

That is correct -- if -- you want an existing skin. iTulip has never looked like any existing skins I have seen...

i'd like the name of the post author to be larger, especially on the "what's new?" results page. the name of the thread originator and of the most recent post author should be easier to scan. otherwise, no problems so far.

Thanks,

The changes that FRED described elsewhere, including the simplified method of posting video, etc., should be excellent improvements to the site so I am looking forward to that.

My only complaint is the lack of colour contrast [primarily the white background], but we shall "bare" with FRED and the iTulip team as I have every confidence they will get it all sorted... :) [...but I do hope they don't hire Mega on a consulting contract to help out with the spell checker...]

The latter- my goof. I'm not the only one getting postage sized graphics. Did you get to size yours?

It seems Rajiv has figured this out. See What Post-2008 World Can Learn From Japan (Post #4) (http://www.itulip.com/forums/showthread.php?15252-What-Post-2008-World-Can-Learn-From-Japan&p=158409#post158409) for the explanation.

I haven't been able to spend much time on the forums due to EYE STRAIN.
And, IMHO, the smilies are terrible! :(

Give me a week or so; if I find anything I like about the *New* (Improved :eek:) iTulip - I'll let you know.

As of right this moment, the new White Background, light/dark teal messages, and olive headers are te BEST!
