Neowin Pegasus Theme v1.3 released


 Share

Recommended Posts

First off, thank you for all your comments regarding Neowin's new look. We were never going to please everyone, and as this is quite a significant change we did indeed expect some uneasiness. We hope in time you'll come to like the new design, and to help ease the transition we've just released v1.1, including the following features:

  • New tiles - we love these, and we've listened to your suggestions and added a few more
  • New fonts - a few more options to customize Neowin to your liking
  • Expanded option - jump into Settings and enable the expanded design for those who want it wider
  • Tooltip disable option - not all of you love the tooltips, we know
  • Fix for Chrome bugs - the beta Chrome releases had some bugs that we've squashed
  • Fix for short news bug - the option to disable wasn't working, it now is
  • Fix for... other bugs - Timan loves his fly swatter
  • Get involved banner hidden for members - you're already involved by signing up!
  • Legacy theme - for those clinging to the past ;)

Update: 1.2

  • Added 4 more font choices for those Windows Users
  • Added option to fix scrolling for some users in chrome
  • Fixed fonts to match main page choice on forums

Update: 1..3

  • Tweaked headlines, now smaller, better line spacing
  • Added more spacing between news items
  • Tiles no longer scroll, are now fixed (cooler effect :p)

Your feedback is valuable, and thanks to each of you who made constructive comments. Some things won't change - this isn't design-by-committee after all - but we hope this'll go some way to improve your experience with the site, and give you a little more control over certain features.

Any ETA on the forums gaining this theme?

If only I could see the ok/save/whatever button in the settings popup on my netbook to change these options. :(

Ah, on smaller resolutions it seems to be shoved off the bottom and not recoverable by scrolling. It's clipped a little on 1366x768.

I fixed that, but broke it while adding a 2nd row of fonts :p will be fixed in 5min.

Edit: Now Fixed

Awesome job :D

I hope the legacy option helps ease some of the "change it back" commenters :)

Any reason why the settings button doesn't work? Using Firefox 6.0 Beta and I have waited for the page to finish loading before clicking...

Clearing cache should fix it.

Heh, yeah as part of the backend changes to support Pegasus it's broken our staff.neowin.net domain that hosts some stuff for us. Will get one of the backend guys to fix :)

gravatar avatars are pulling in the wrong size so they look blurry..

i think it's pulling in a 24px image and scaling it up.

Great work though guys, a very smart, professional design. :)

A forum theme will come with IPB 3.2, theres no point in investing time, cost and effort for this version which will be going shortly!
