Hey folks,

Yuku has added responsive design UI to their layouts and we're testing them out. What you see now is not this site's permanent layout but just a default for now.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Yep Ad Block is sooo great. I like this new temporary format. Nice and clean.

Edit: Nevermind, it changed. This layout is much harder to read.

Can we get different icons for unread and read?


Unfortunately, the icons themselves are a part of the yuku system now. I don't have any control over changing them except their color and it seems to be a one color fits all sort of thing.

What specifically makes it hard to navigate?

What changes would make it easier to read?

I'll see if I can remove that. I actually increased the spacing 'cause I thought it would be easier to read.

This is completely new coding, so bare with me. I'm literally learning it as we go and as all things Yuku goes nothing about it is intuitive.

The colors are a little too bright. Hard to see quoted text. Some people may also be color blind, so you have to take that into consideration.

To see quoted test properly you have to move your mouse over the quote. There is a masking highlight that works like a mouse over. I still changed the background color and the text to have higher contrast.

Are you colorblind? I think the colors that I've used are contrasting enough for that not to be a major issue. The major parts of the forum are literally black text on light grey backgrounds. If you are colorblind and have an actual problem could you tell me what differences you're having trouble perceiving?

I suppose the only real thing that's difficult to navigate is the J-Pop Artists Threads forum. Wouldn't it make sense to make "Other J-Pop Artists" a subforum as well? It seems odd that all the other threads appear below the page navigator.

I really like the new design! It's not that hard to navigate with. I just wish there were something like red icons to know which thread has new posts cuz I really don't understand how I'm supposed to know rn! smiley: laugh
And the fact that the Korean Artists section is a subforum of Korean Music is kinda weird to me since nobody posts in the latter, I almost thought it got deleted haha.

If you guys notice things missing like post icons and options to choose from like selecting fonts, it's because those options have yet to be implemented in the coding for this version of the yuku forum. Hopefully, it'll be added soon.

I'm also trying to see if I can add an unread thread icon, because I know it's really hard to determine what's new and what's not. So far only a little thought bubble on the main page is the only default icon indicating new posts. That's obviously not good enough.
