I inverted the top navigation with the user info/links and search. Since nobody seems to make a topic about it, I guess I'll have to do it.
Do you like it?
Does it display ok?
Would you change something?
Maybe a background colour and/or border?
Maybe something else?
The first thing i thought when i saw it,was that you moved to links below the user info to make room for a banner.
Sorry, but the way it is right now, its fugly.
This can be fixed easily though, I think.
1: Curve or angle off the bottom corners of the light blue bar with the links in it. (This would make it clash less with what is below it.)
2: Change the background color of everything above the links to something other than white. The background of the text in forum threads would do okay. A gradient would also do very nicely... Oh, consecutive forum posts have alternating background colors, yes? Make the background above the links a right-to-left gradient between those two colors. (The point of this is to keep the link bar from looking like it is orphaned floating off in space on its own.)
What about this? I added the margin for the image and changed the background colour. However, I don't really like the colour, though.
Margin's a definite improvement ^^
Perhaps tone down the background colour and thin out the line below it?
The text is better now.
I agree though I don't like the background color all that much easier. I personally thought it was fine white. Maybe if you toned down the grayish color a bit it would look a little better.
I do like the links being on the bottom rather than the top. Much easier to navigate. Before they were too high in my opinion.
Have noticed lots of improvement thanks Bondings.
Regarding the formatting, is it possible to change the font (Times Roman) to non-cursif (Arial or Verdana) so that it would match all the others? Especially the fonts that give our names, number of posts etc, next to our avatar? The writing next to the Avatar could even be made slightly smaller.
