Back to Fluxbb yet again. ;)

I've managed a way to get a single forum without redirects with FluxBB. That's essentially what I've been wanting for a while now. It's currently hosted at: http://thexeno.com/flux/index.php but will be moved to the TLD soon as I get the topic page and other stuff "sitcheated." smile

Have a good one folks and I feel like I'm on the right track this time!

Re: Back to Fluxbb yet again. ;)

Would anyone care to check out a couple pages and give me a good honest feel for it? I have a feeling the background is just too busy but I'm not sure?

http://thexeno.com/flux/index.php

And any topic such as: http://thexeno.com/flux/viewtopic.php?id=241

Hoping to go Live with flux soon!

Re: Back to Fluxbb yet again. ;)

Hello !

Well, your implementation is a good example of what can be done with CSS smile

Honestly, yes, I personally find the theme "busy", but, as we say in French,

les goûts et les couleurs ne se discutent pas

According to "Google Translate" : "Flavors and colors are not discussed" or "Everyone's taste is different") smile

If you feel it's (a bit) busy, you can try to soften the colors (pastel shades for example).
But every website designer can confirm that it's a hard work to find colors that are well accepted by everyone.

I think it's better to have a theme that is well accepted by guests and most of members, and one or two other themes for registered users who do not not like the default theme ...
This means much more work hmm

I see the OP has changed it, and I think the change is better.

Re: Back to Fluxbb yet again. ;)

I've done it finally. The final product I was aiming for years ago lol. smile Feel free to visit the link above. Learned a lot over these last few years! (It's the Tiger Tribe link in signature. Don't really want to add another link as to link spam.)

Re: Back to Fluxbb yet again. ;)

Looks pretty good,  a lot of work went into it .
Kind of off the topic, but,

I am curious, in your signature the link labelled  as "door". What happens if a human does fill out the form, and makes a comment ?

I suppose I could try and see, ...?

My thoughts are maybe you need to be more clear on that, for example: "If you are human DO NOT fill out this form".

Or is it ok to use it to post comments, ? Like a contact form.

It's automated to auto-report. I posted the link in just a few places on the internet. We're able to gather about 30-50 bots per hour with this! yikes

I suppose I should put a disclaimer. I was trying to be a bit funny/whacky to do that but you're right I should probably just spell it out lol.

EDIT: If you did fill it out would you please inbox me your IP or the user name you submitted so I can remove it lol. big_smile

Re: Back to Fluxbb yet again. ;)

Oh , ok, well I almost was going to send a note, that I had visited, but my helper came in and when he saw what I was doing, he said "Bryan Nooooo, don't do that!",... my helper thinks he is the boss, but really I am the boss.
More about Me, Bryan

Be sure to include, Parrots , in the warning:

for example: "If you are human DO NOT fill out this form".

=================================

"If you are human or parrot, DO NOT fill out this form".
