New Theme - Bugs and Feedback

Center doesn't expand with rest of browser when going to higher resolutions (unsure if intended or not - would recommend some resizing with browser width as some may prefer wider chat boxes where applicable)

Ability to edit posts appears gone

The gaps between chat posts feel a bit large.
Kind of makes it feel disjointed going post from post. (also means more scrolling)
If intended for the design feel free to ignore.

For both themes no clear indicator on character sheet on forms which you are not allowed/can't change (ie skill aspects on your own character)
If possible would recommend something for more contrast for a cleaer visual indicator of what you can or can't change in an edit

--

Conditions on the character edit is scrollable instead of drop down.

Let's start with fonts here

Let's start with fonts here first - I've replaced the font with a google font that hopefully (knock on wood) is less pixelated - how is it looking now?

More updates:

More updates:

* center doesn't expand - actually intended, max width is set at : 1140px for now, but in exchange we got a much better responsive theme that should smoothly shrink down to mobile. I'll double check the width, we can configure that wider as well.

* button down on forum post rating is gone now.

* images should now be limited for width

* Fixed layout on the template generation bars

Ok, by my count that leaves

Ok, by my count that leaves

* edit chatroom UI

* character sheet disabled form element display

* conditions are drop down and not single select (though they may have been drop down the entire time and the display isn't cooperating with height changes maybe?)

I could be misremember about the drop down bit and it could be a height thing. I just remember the box being bigger enabling easier selection of multiple conditions if applicable.

Font colours

Maybe make the font colours between light and dark settings to be more suitable for each theme. What works on light, doesn't work on dark.

Well....

So they do!

The link font colour seems to clash with the dark theme though.

Okay

Just now coming into this, at 100% zoom on my regular desktop, the actual area the main section takes up 50% of the space, with even amounts of blank space on either side of that. Zooming in so it fits the width makes everything else on the screen too large for my personal taste. Will try mobile in the morning to see how it looks with this.

The current theme doesn't

The current theme doesn't expand to 100% of width so that's what you're seeing there Keshana. I've got some plans this weekend to see what I can do to expand it to wider.

Found a couple more

Room Descriptions from the sidebar tab don't scroll when needed.

Item picker under dice roller is hard to use - has the same issue of the conditions box on character sheet.

Also doesn't seem to play well when trying to select multiple items? but may be due to hard to use it atm

Ok, both the item picker and

Ok, both the item picker and the conditions selectors are actually Multi-selectors so you can select more than one thing. The options height display for the dropdown selectors wasmessing with those options as they were displayed - it should read a little better now, but let me know if not.

When editing character sheets

When editing character sheets should be more clear now about what fields can be edited vs can't.

The link color doesn't clash on my screen and on running the colors used through a few of the accessibility color-check programs out there they're coming back fine on that end. So you may want to adjust your monitor settings - it may be set extra bright or extra dark - or just stick to the theme that works better for your display.

By my count that leaves:

* Room descriptions scrolling correctly in pop out.

* Looking into expanding width to 100% of screen.

woot

Edit chat room looks good!

also much easier to tell what can't and can be edited on a character sheet.

Items and conditions picker way easier to use.
imo item picker could be a smidge larger to help with larger item lists (ie have it show like up to 3 lines at a time) or expandable on demand maybe? Though the latter is maybe something better to consider in the future.
