Hey there!

Just got my forum out there. I'm running a custom theme made by @MattiGB (its almost) default theme, so not much to be seen on that matter.

I'm looking for suggestions on the logo and also on the look for a clean looking blue template. Of course, if you wish to become a member, go ahead. :)

Have a great weekend!

Yeah I just created it free on a online logo maker. I tried to use a speech 💬 but its probably a little to close 😅

I can see how it's almost going to work. If only the forum name started with a C

Call it Chat & Banter, then it might work!

Looks great!

I don't like these 2 category names:

Community Related
Leisure Area


For starters community-related is more about the leisure stuff because that is your community. ;)
And Leisure Area just sounds weird.

I'd do something like:

Site Info
Community


;)

You know what when I read what you said and looked at the site you are completely right. I've taken your comments on board and implemented them. Thank you for your kind words also.

Your original login/register/search styling was neat. Looks like now it's back to default. I think the former was better. Everything else looks good. Good job!

Done some more updates over the past few weeks, let me know your thoughts:) trying to keep the style basic but with some suttle CSS changes

When I mentioned the logo not making sense with the previous name, it was because the half speech bubble icon looked like a C.

I would make use of that possibility with the new name:

The logo is the only part troubling me at the moment. I hopefully have a designer working on one today and will post results. The inspiration should be starting with the C for sure :)

My mockup is pretty crude (it doesn't quite looko enough like a speech bubble anymore) but if you have a pro (or experienced/talented) designer they would make that idea work much better. Or something else completely!

I have deleted some posts which were related to a site which isn't even running XF software, so clearly it's not possible to do a direct copy of the style.

If you still have any issues, take them up with the thread author privately.
