Salams,

I just changed the theme and adjusted a few things. Everything's pretty much the same except there's a new button on the top for "Recent Topics" which is nice if someone wants to bookmark that. At the bottom it shows 20 recent topics in 4 rows not sure if that's confusing. Also random quotes will not work Sad Ooo I don't see any 'new' signs down there at the bottom... will have to see where those went!

Yeah, didn't see the "new" signs either, was wondering about that. I find that most useful when I might have cleared topics as "read" but when I know there are some posts I still haven't clicked on from maybe several days back.

The recent topic feature is alright I think, not too confusing really. Nice touch.

Otherwise, I like the update!

Well done Admin!  Smiley

OK, I guess Sr. Fozia doesn't agree with me, hehe. I think when updating, there will always be little fixes that need to be taken care of, but I've got full faith in the Admin. We just need to be patient.

OK I think I fixed most of the things... the "new" and changed the recent topics at the bottom back into 2 rows and they should open into new windows... let me know if there's anything else weird or broken...

I agree with sis Aazeen, without the green this place feels strange. It will take some time to get used to the change.

Also, I am having trouble replying to an anonymous thread. Any suggestions?

Salaams,

Nice template. Speaks loud about this being a female dominated site/forum Wink

And there used to be last posters name next to the recent posts at the bottom. That seems to be missing too...

ws,

Ilyas I accidentally put those in the wrong place, you should be able to respond now.

We usually change the colors every season... red for summer, orange/brown for fall, blue for winter, green for spring...
The latest green was there for the ramadan theme.

Girly! That's odd cuz the theme was made by a guy! I thought it had nice Fall colors. Do u guys want the names? Wasn't sure if that's useful or not...also the date can be included

Salaams,

Guys can develop themes for girlie, kiddie, manly, allien et al sites. Happens all the time Wink. Oh and for handheld devices its all the same, its simply blue and white (my all time fav colors!).

And names help alot, im an aggressive user of the feature. The forum name there isnt that useful imo, date can help perhaps when one goes in lurker mode.

I don't think the theme is particular gender biased towards either sex...


I just dont like it for all the reasons I mentioned previously.


But then I don't think I have ever liked a single theme bar the very first one we had when I first joined, fifty years ago or so oldshaykh

The welcome text in green could be changed to some other color for better readability.

Nostalgia is good but sometimes you have to move with the times otherwise we would still be carrying around brick like mobile phones instead of snazzy iPhones Sr Fozia Wink


Just a couple of things I noticed:


The archives link is not currently HTMLised (is that a word?) and you have to copy and paste the link in order to get there.


The archives link for the year 2000 shows the population of the Madina at 1.2bn and now we are at 2bn in 2010. My, how we have grown!! bro


Still love the Quran flash tab.

Say: "O ye my servants who believe! Fear your Lord, good is (the reward) for those who do good in this world. Spacious is God's earth! those who patiently persevere will truly receive a reward without measure!" [39:10]

ws,

Tongue lol fozia u crack me up, have a  bebzi on me

The funny thing is the same sort of thing happened on Facebook the other day. There was an error and the program 'automatically' tries to fix it, the same thing the board did and then it broke everything! So Facebook went down for about an hour and ppl were going nuts!

On twitter ppl were writing the funniest msgs I retweeted some:


postsecret: BREAKING NEWS: Facebook is down. Worker productivity rises. U.S. climbs out of recession.

statesman: FYI: Yes, Facebook is down for everyone. Breathe deeply ... straighten up your desk ... walk around the building.

loubrutus: DNS FAILURE: Facebook is down which means 9 months from today, many children will born.

Salaams -

looooool Sis J  @ those tweets!!!

omA omA omA  - BROTHER KHALID!!!!!!!!! Yes, I was even thinking about you during Ramadhan and yeah, were you not supposed to do a diary towards the end of the month??? I was thinking you got really busy, both with Ramadan and/or family duties, but alas, good to know you are out there, still functioning :-)

hahah, Sr. Fozia - you're a silly one! Bless you!

As for all the techical mumbo-jumbo - I have no clue about that stuff, but sounds complicated - I don't know if this had anything to do with it, but on the thread I started on the Sr. Aafia news, I noticed there was one line, then when I checked back, there was more text - don't know if that was just text added later or was that due to the errors that were trying to be fixed.

Anyhooo, good work Sis J, as always. Hope all the remaining issues will be taken care of soon.

I had a really interesting day today, will be posting about it soon, insha'allah.
