Hello guys,

When i make a thread the box just doesn't seem to really blend. I wish it was fit to the end of the style and same with signature it just seems placed their really. Maybe redo the grey with the blue of the board to make it blend better?

I'm guessing this is already on the list but the text editor (simple and advanced) looks like a throwback/add on and doesn't do the software any favours.

Every time I see it, it reminds me of all the things I don't like about other forum software.

I don't mind the way it looks now. Do you have any screenshots or mockups of how you would want it to look?

What do you mean exactly?

It just doesn't look like an integrated part of the software.
The colours are wrong, no shading or drop shadow, rounded corners, etc.

It looks like they just took it from vB and dumped it here as an afterthought

This being an unreleased early alpha version of the software, I think it's a given that a few things just won't be dazzling right now. Besides I can't see Kier & Co. letting the editor remain as is. ;)

Hmm... I have no problems whatsoever with it. But even in this case, it get's an overhaul. Interesting so see what!

To clarify, the 'look' hasn't been based on vB. Its TinyMCE - this is what it looks like as default.

I've recently been using CKEditor along side a bbcode plugin - I highly recommend Kier and Mike take a look (unless a custom one is in the pipeline!).

About the title btw, I don't think it looks awful. Especially for a first alpha of the first version.
