    Hello everyone,

    I am looking for some constructive suggestions, feedback and constructive regarding my new forum.


    It is a forum about cars and I am using the Core custom style by @Russ.

    Looking forward to the feedback. Thank you in for reading this thread and for your replies. :)

    It's pleasant enough to look at but desperately in need of some niche-specific visuals IMO. A logo, the node icons etc. could all do with some customisation. Also, the default no-avatar user logos (the male/female icons) could be changed to something niche-specific. The node title backgrounds (the dark bar) is also a good place to put some subtle niche-specifc faded backgrounds in.

    To be honest, it all ends up looking a bit bland as a result, you need an edge in this niche because it's quite crowded. I would also like to see the default Cookies notice expanded to include a sentence or two actually telling visitors in a nutshell what your site is about (it also seems set to show permanently, so I can't dismiss it, which would be handy, I only need to read it once).

    Apart from the visuals, it's quick and easy to use, so a good start, and you can always add to the visuals as you go along.

    Thank you for your suggestion @Ingenious. :) I am aware as well about the images. I am working on it. Regarding the notices, it is set as dismissed, but guests can not dismiss notices in xenforo.

    Turn on gravatar? I'm sure a few people will have them.
    Other than that it looks nice Borbole
