The Laughingbird Software Forum

Discussion in 'Forum Showcase and Critiques' started by Marc Sylvester, Apr 6, 2012.

  1. Hi everybody -
    I'm new to Xenforo (a previous vBulletin user).

    I love XF.
    I'm finding new things to do with it everyday.

    What do you think of the unique look and feel to my Laughingbird Software forum?

    My only criticism is the amount of white space under each post due to the size of the user sidebar.

    The forum looks fun and inviting. I really like the logo. I have seen tons of support forums for top notch software companies that fail in comparison to this one. Nice job mate.

  4. Thanks Matt.
    I'm actually working on the size of the sidebar. Still trying to figure out all the CSS to modify :D

    Thanks for the nice compliment John!
    I really appreciated that. :D

    Font-size for me is too large in certain areas, such as Category node titles and Tab heading text, sidebar, latest box and other areas. Nice looking theme, but would take a closer look at the font-size being used as a whole because it looks out of proportion in most areas. Sort that out and it will look 50 times better, it's already a good looking theme design wise.

  8. Thanks Arny!
    ... are you speaking about Chris? - He was great :)
  9. MrGTB and dojo;
    Great comments. Thanks for posting. I'll go take a look on another computer. I'm a Mac guy and fonts tend to look smaller on a Mac than they do in Windows.

    This is how I see it in FF, see what I mean about font-size right away if your seeing a smaller text-size using with a Mac. Not sure if that's any different from what you see?

    Looks to be using 14pt for it, and it does look too big in both Firefox and Chrome, especially for such a narrow theme. Maybe the MAC doesn't have that font installed, and is using something different?

    .primaryContent a {
        color: #424242;
        font-size: 14px;
    Also noticed the sectionheaders is breaking out on the right hand side

    For obvious reasons I prefer "Double D"s over DDs.
    As far as shortforms / nicknames, I could care less. :p
