It's here, it's finally here!
As many of you know I was recently brought on as Northbound's first official coder. With that position the past few... weeks? I've lost track of time, but regardless I've been working on a new skin for the website and after making sure nothing is broken, I'm finally ready to reveal it to you all!
First order of business, if you don't see it by default (I'm typing this before I set the skin as default, so), please go to your profile > edit profile > settings > forum theme > Sage & Sand and it'll appear!
As for what's new in this skin, here's a brief rundown:
Collapsable Sidebar: Important Links and weather/season information can now be found under the sidebar that appears when you hit "SHOW/HIDE MENU". The forum will squeeze down to accommodate it when it's open, and with the help of HTML5, it'll remember whether it was open or closed, even if you exit the page! How exciting is that? You may also see some little square images at the bottom of it, those are your staff! (We don't all have pictures right now, sorry about that). Clicking the images will bring up a little pop up with a blurb about us and a list of what characters we play, as well as our pronouns, timezone, and discord username!
New Rank Images: They're now fancy pawprints!
Other: Board images are now font glyphs by Font Awesome, the info center looks better and easier on the eyes, affiliates have been moved below the shoutbox, and the shoutbox now displays your avatar!
This is just the first of a few color variations to the skin, since I know many of us are used to the more earthy tones of the original. Rest assured these colors are coming back! When I'm not so lazy!
As always, if you see any glitches, please let me know! I'll either address them or throw up my hands and tell you there's nothing I can do about it, but here's a cookie instead.
