Ahh I understand now! You see, my vision has always been more minimalist, a no-compromise combination of function and form. Redundancy is usually the result of not having an "ideal way" to do it one way, so you end up with two ways. With the new changes and navbar, a lot of these ways have had a new implementation that truly supersedes them. If you don't want to get rid of some/any of these though I understand. In that case I would recommend that a "no redundancy or minimalist" sub version be made for these sorts of changes, should they happen. I'm going to make a mockup of what I think is a much better, compact, minimalist design. A lot of it will be with the navbar and so not be entirly out of thequestion for the main theme I hope. Some of it will move, change and REMOVE certain site elements, and possibly add one I think you'll like. wink.gif I'll probably do that tomorrow after a nice long sleep For now I've clarified my screenshot using color coating.




I'm browsing at 1440p with User Icon > Preferences > View Forums Full Width > Enabled.
I KNOW I'm not the only one who has that checked, as posts and threads can become EXTREMELYlong without it. To the point of losing your place frequently. It is an official option though. Most forums display in full width by default with no option to have... reduced mode? It's a mystery to me why anyone would want it so amall.

Anyway, it's a shame not many of those requests fit with the main vision, but hopefully you'll find that perhaps one can!

I'd like to change one of my suggestions, this is the most important for me personally and I know it's a serious pet peeve for many others. Perhaps we can figure out a way that works to meet both our ideals!

Shrink the smaller nav bar as much as possible! even more, making margins just 2 pixels from the top and bottom of the avatar, and have that size be the only one, so it doesn't change if you scroll to the top.
There's still a lot of margin above and below the logo. Perhaps it can be shaved away more without interfering with the overall look you're going for! thumb.gif It's growing on me as well. With your theme allowing me to see the private messages and subscriptions, I'm really enjoying it! biggrin.gif (Wouldn't it be mad awesome if there was a pop out preview on hover of whatever new messages or thread replies you had?)

Was advanced search crunched up on the bottom like that before? I can't remember. It's ugly though. ...This won't fit with your design, but hey, maybe we can be the first forum to have a "two part" search button instead of hyperlink text. Left = Search (slimmer than now), |small margin to indicate separate link| Right = Advanced search.
OR Another option is moving it under subscriptions, but that would only look right if the search bar could was directly next to that area. Wait as second... a "quick/temporary fix" could be to right align the search bar! Then advanced search can be moved and the nav bar shrunk sooner (oh god it's so massive, I'll never get used to it! mad.gif) Then there is a smaller delay while an expanded search bar is developed, IF it is even possible!

As much as I admire your vision, I implore you to concede on but a few points of the design that have always been clunky like this. If you are on the fence, perhaps polls can be made asking proposed changes take away from the original look you are going for, or add something everyone has always wanted? (And not even know they did!) smile.gif

One of the reasons I think you don't like the transparency on private messages and subscriptions is because the OTHER BUTTONS all turn opaque on mouse over!!! I think it may be possible to add a box behind the private messages and subscriptions that acts the same way the other buttons do. thumb.gif
For me, opaque feels like there is stuff being cut off... because there is! Even though I can't read it, I feel much better seeing what's under there when it's transparent. Be careful of "Human preferred" numbers! They are rarely ever the ideal numbers, and only chosen since we'll move in large steps to see difference between changes. Try tranparancy values of 81 and 73, even if it bugs you. Offset your steps and make them smaller to help yourself fine tune values to perfection. biggrin.gif

They're the result of making sure everyone has a way to use the site in their own way. Everyone has their own unique style of using the internet. So, the redundancy that OCN has created is to make OCN as compatible with as many people as possible. If OCN didn't have these redundancies, then they'd be receiving suggestions for these things that you're calling redundant. Technically, yes, they're redundant by the very definition of the word, but that redundancy is giving each and every person who uses this site the freedom to use it however they want to use it - and I refuse to change that. That's just not what OCN Classic is about.

My vision for OCN Classic doesn't include making these kinds of changes. If you want these changes though, then you should make your own theme and make it available to everyone. After all, if I can do it, then anyone can - and I didn't write any of this code! You just have to make coders happy to give you what you want. You have to respect them and remember that they are volunteering their time to help you out even though they're probably busy with their own projects and personal life.

So, what you're talking about changing goes so far away from what OCN Classic is about that it becomes an entirely new theme. OCN Classic is not about customizing OCN in major ways, and your changes are major customizations. So, we (or you) would need to create a new theme for that. I'm not going to consider making those changes to OCN Classic because that's just not what OCN Classic is about. The improved search box is something I want though because OCN used to have a very nice one. Unfortunately, based on the attempts I've seen so far to get what we used to have, I'm worried that it may never be possible and that OCN Classic might always have the Search menu version as its default.

At the very least, I would love to move the Search menu button next to "RIGBUILDER" and have the menu extending to the right from the button instead of to the left like it does now. This is really a selfish reason though because I never use it and I am tired of accidentally hovering over the Search menu button. lol So, I probably won't pursue this idea for OCN Classic unless a coder accomplishes this for me and I find that it looks fantastic.

This screenshot is the same as your other screenshot because there's no new information in it. So, it's redundant. tongue.gif

Anyway, all kidding aside (even though it is 100% redundant), what you are asking for is a brand new theme that has nothing to do with OCN Classic - which I did say in my previous post. I already said that what you're asking for is not going to happen to OCN Classic. As such, I think you should create a new thread in this Web Coding forum asking for help creating it (which is something else I said in my previous post). You can use OCN Classic as a base, that's not a problem. Where it would become a problem is, continuing to ask me to make OCN Classic become an entirely new theme. This is now the second time that I'm trying to politely say "no". The first time was in my previous post. The reason why it will never happen is, it would no longer be OCN Classic. It would be like, "OCN Heavily Customized" or something (so, you would not be allowed to use the name "OCN Classic" in your theme's name - you would only be allowed to credit it).

So the changes you want to make create an entirely new direction with an entirely new vision. Your vision and direction is so different from OCN Classic that it's just as different as OCN Dark is from OCN Classic. So, I will never ask any coder to help me make any of these major changes to the theme, but I could ask them to give me the code for any change that's possible. If I had the code, then I could make them installable via UserStyles.org for you (and GreasyFork.org for any JavaScript that would be required).

So yeah, what you are really asking for is an entirely new theme. You're knocking on the door of creating your own theme that you could make available to everyone, just as I did. If that excites you a little bit, then go for it! Just don't keep asking me to change my vision or direction for OCN Classic.

What you just described are two different things: the length of a thread and the width of the forums. You mostly described the length of a thread, and based on your description, I would say that you have "100 Posts Per Page" selected. That's not affected by "View Forums Full Width". That option views the full width of the forums. It dynamically adjusts to the width of your browser window. Turning this option off limits the width to 1240 pixels wide. What I was referring to in my previous post was the width of your navbar. It's dramatically wider than mine! So, you would need to make sure to tell your theme users that it's only compatible with a browser window that's 2560 pixels wide or wider.

Two reasons for NOT using "View Forums Full Width" is if you still have a monitor that isn't widescreen, or a very small widescreen monitor.

Think about the name for a minute: "OCN Classic". What is "OCN Classic" about what you want to change?

After working with these expert coders for a while now, I would bet that a popout preview would probably be very difficult, if not impossible.

Anyway, resizing the navbar isn't going to happen to OCN Classic because I want to keep that "white space" above and below all of the objects on the navbar, especially the OCN logo and the avatar and the notification bubbles. "White space" is a VERY good thing. This is not up for debate. I'm sorry. It just won't happen to OCN Classic.

Besides, you have 1,440 vertical pixels at your disposal. Are you telling me that you don't have enough vertical space? What you're asking for is an extremely tiny and insignificant change at that resolution because it would only give you a couple more pixels. So, you'd gain less than 5 or 6 extra vertical pixels. I'd understand if you had a tiny little display, but come on.

Either way, if this can be done, it's not going to happen to OCN Classic because I don't want OCN Classic to have that. Besides, you're not really using my theme anymore anyway because it's heavily customized - or so it appears from my end. Changing the colors like that instantly changes it into an entirely new theme.

Yeah, the only kind of search bar I'd want on the navbar is one that looks like what we had before. After all, this is OCN Classic. You are free to ask for help in this Web Coding forum to get the things that you want here. The only thing stopping you is your desire to keep asking me to change OCN Classic to be something very different.

"Clunky" is a matter of opinion here. wink.gif

Why do that when anyone can have their own theme? I'm living proof of that. What's stopping you from having your own theme? Don't tell me that it's because you don't know how to do any coding because I don't either.

Again, changing the original look that I'm going for would require me to change the name. At that point, it would be a new theme. So, OCN Classic is going to remain the way it is, except for minor improvements here and there to make it more complete and perfect. Sure, there are differences (other than the navbar), such as the solid-color buttons. They used to have those mostly-transparent buttons with a border, but I don't know if that's possible and I've already decided that these buttons are perfect for OCN Classic because OCN Classic is OCN's new theme, but the way that it SHOULD have been.

I need to make something very clear: I'm not saying that I don't want these changes; I'm saying that OCN Classic doesn't want them. wink.gif It can't have them because then it wouldn't be OCN Classic anymore. So, I can see now that you definitely need to get OCN to help you create your own theme so that you can have everything that you want (or at least whatever ends up being possible).

No, that's not why. Also, those are buttons. They're supposed to have a hover color. "Subscriptions" and "Private Messages" are text links because that's what OCN used to have. This is OCN Classic.

When I added Subscriptions and Private Messages to the navbar, I was already accustomed to having a 74% opaque navbar. However, on that first scroll-down, I did NOT like what I saw when I would occasionally look up at Subscriptions and Private Messages while scrolled down. I found myself STRONGLY preferring the way they look when scrolled all the way to the top. So, I switched to having a personal preference of a 100% opaque navbar. Even so, I STILL provide the option for having a transparent sticky navbar.

Good catch! I'll ask to see if it's possible to make Private Messages and Subscriptions into invisible buttons that turn solid on hover just like the other navbar buttons. You made me realize that with the transparent navbar, it has an inconsistent look! So, theme options 2 and 5 would get this change if this is possible.

And I like the 100% opaque navbar. There's nothing wrong with having a different preference.

Anyway, if any coders would be willing to volunteer their time and their talents to create code that can do what you want (and if they'd give that code to me), then I would be absolutely pleased to be able to make them installable on UserStyles.org for you. Everyone deserves to get what they want when it's within reason. It would be even better if you could get OCN to help you create your own theme because that's actually what you are asking for here.



Edit: I forgot to mention that you are the only one so far who has asked for any of these changes. So, you shouldn't be expecting me to apply all of these changes just because 1 person wants it to happen.

You did say to continue to make suggestions, but I guess I was taking the "Classic" part of the theme a little too lightly! redface.gif
I'd be happy with 6 pixels saved. Honestly, anything would be an improvement. You're right though, I'm on 1440p. So imagine how pissed 768p users are? Probably very. I wasn't asking to eliminate all margins, just make them more reasonable. A subtle tweak. If you made a thread that was called "HOW TO SHRINK THE NAV BAR!" and posted a version of it 10px slimmer you'd probably get 5 times as much attention as this thread, (not that i'm dissing OCN Classic Theme at all, it's a massive improvement!). That was the #1 thing people were complaining about in The New Face thread.


I'd LOVE to start my own theme and make 1080p, 1440p and 2160p versions, but I don't have the time at the moment. I guess I'll have to put these ideas on the shelf at the moment. I couldn't ask all that of Agawthrop!
Perhaps I'll talk to the creator of the OCN dark theme (do you have a link? I can't find their thread!) My browser is inverted with Hackervision which makes OCN butt ugly. Unfortunately I can't look at the white pages, my eyes just can't take it. Even this brown is lighter than I'd prefer. Ideally I'd have it dark gray with light grey letters and no light elements whatsoever. I haven't checked out OCN dark since the first day of the switch, I'll see if they match your feature set at least! I don't want to give it up! biggrin.gif

By the way, I'm not "expecting" anything, I'm just making suggestions, not requests. It may seem to you that I'm suggesting things way out there, but I'm not in your head so I don't see your vision as clearly as you do. smile.gif

"A little" is putting it very lightly. Again, nearly all of the changes that you want would end up creating an entirely new theme. The only change so far that is in alignment with this theme is improving the "miscellaneous" install option for putting the search box on the navbar so that it's not quite so damn ugly and short (not wide enough and doesn't dynamically adjust with the browser's width).

You keep assuming that everyone feels the exact same way that you do. You need to stop that.

It's an unnecessary tweak for OCN Classic in my eyes. White space is an extremely good thing.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_space_arts%29

I refuse to take away the white space that is there. Please read some articles on why white space is a good thing.

If you want to reduce the white space, then ask OCN how to change the size of the navbar with CSS or JavaScript (ask them for the code) and then have them help you apply that code. Once you have the code, you can tweak it over and over and over until you feel it's perfect. I am not going to make this change to OCN Classic because I refuse to take away that white space. You're the only one so far who has asked for this (and you're the only one so far who has asked for all of these other changes). In order for any suggested changes to be made, they must be made by several people. It has to be clear that the suggested changes are what the vast majority of OCN Classic's users want.

Why would you only ask agawthrop? That's what OCN's Web Coding forum is for.

I have one word for you: f.lux.

You'll be able to get rid of Hackervision.

Think about the name: OCN Classic. What did OCN look like before this new theme was dumped on us? What would OCN have looked like if they hadn't changed anything except for giving us this new navbar? I don't even like how they changed the profile menu button to be the avatar. I liked it better when it was my name. I'd change that, but the high-res avatar on the navbar is nice.

Your suggestions are major changes. That's not what OCN Classic is about. Think about the name of the theme, and then you'll have a better idea of what suggestions might be appropriate and acceptable. Removing parts of OCN or moving parts of OCN around isn't going back to what could be called "the classic OCN". It's a major customization, and OCN Classic is not about major customizations; it's about reverting back to OCN the way it was as much as possible before OCN dumped their new theme on us. Please respect that.

Also, you may not realize it, but you are delivering your suggestions in such a way that's a bit forceful or demanding - and you're doing it in such a way with the assumption that everyone feels the same way you do. You're also doing it in such a way that feels like you are expecting me to love the ideas just as much as you do because again, you're assuming that everyone feels the same way you do. That's why you need to make your own theme, or just ask OCN to help you customize OCN Classic to your liking.

I will be making another post soon here because I'm about to make another update to OCN Classic. It's becoming more complete and more perfect.

I have a relatively big update today! smile.gif I have cleaned up my OP and OCN Classic v1.3.1 is now live and ready to be installed!

To install OCN Classic 1.3.1, please begin by installing the JavaScript code below from GreasyFork.org, restart your browser, and then install the theme option that you want.


Please restart your browser after installing this script for the changes to take effect.


Now you may install one of the theme options:



  1. Option 1 is the version seen in the screenshots (in the original post of this thread). This gives you a 100% opaque navbar when scrolling down with Left-Aligned links on the navbar for Private Messages and Subscriptions.
  2. Option 2 gives you a 74% opaque navbar when scrolling down with Left-Aligned links on the navbar for Private Messages and Subscriptions
  3. Option 3 gives you a navbar that stays at the top when scrolling down with Left-Aligned links on the navbar for Private Messages and Subscriptions.
  4. Option 4 gives you a 100% opaque navbar with Right-Aligned links on the navbar (for Private Messages and Subscriptions.
  5. Option 5 gives you a 74% opaque navbar with Right-Aligned links on the navbar for Private Messages and Subscriptions.
  6. Option 6 gives you a navbar that stays at the top when scrolling down with Right-Aligned links on the navbar for Private Messages and Subscriptions.


Convenient link to the OP: http://www.overclock.net/t/1581409/ocn-classic-theme


Changelog (starting at v1.2) (Click to show)

  • Version 1.3.1

    • New version numbering system in order to significantly reduce the chances of reaching "v2.0" before it's appropriate.
    • Added a hover color to all buttons (except for the Cancel button on the "Edit Thread" page - that's coming)
    • Changed button sizes for many buttons.
    • Center-aligned the button label text on several buttons.
    • Fixed the color on the last few buttons that were still the new blue color
    • Updated the coloring of the pagination buttons
    • Removed the blue 1-pixel border that was on many of this theme's buttons (it was OCN's new blue color)
    • Added a 1-pixel black border (on mouse hover) around the Multi button when it's turned on.
    • Performed other improvements and perfections that are minor and difficult to describe.
    • New "comment" lines in the CSS and JavaScript code to help you navigate the code better.
    • Cleaned up the code's appearance.



  • Version 1.3

    • Name change from "OCN New Classic" to "OCN Classic"
    • Now all of the buttons on the site are the correct color. (this later turned out to be wrong)
    • Fixed the black hover color on a pressed Multi button.
    • The Submit button on the "Edit Thread" page is now the correct size.



  • Version 1.2

    • Fixed sticky underlining problem for the entire site
    • Linked the thread title at the top of a thread page (the last breadcrumb). It links to the first page in the thread.
    • Pagination buttons now have the correct colors


Credits, a note on feature or change requests and suggestions, and the list of Known Issues and Bugs (Click to show)

Credits (in order of appearance on this project):

@TheBadBull
@agawthrop
@Jiiks
@TFL Replica

If I left you out of the credits, then please tell me to add you to the list.

TheBadBull started this by colorizing the navbar and the buttons throughout the site. If it weren't for him, then I never would have done any of this.

agawthrop did so much that I would need a big post just to explain it all.
Jiiks did even more than agawthrop.

Without Jiiks and agawthrop, I would not have been able to improve upon what TheBadBull started. Basically, they did everything that I would have done if I had their programming skills. All I did was tell them what I wanted, and the next thing I knew they were giving me the code for what I wanted. Sure, I made some minor adjustments to most of the code that they gave me, but they still get 100% of the programming credit. Still, almost everything you see and experience in this theme came out of my head.

Forgive me if you had a smaller contribution in this and I failed to give you credit. Speak up and I will be very happy to add you to the credits!



Feature or Change Requests (suggestions):

Please consider the name of this theme before posting a feature or change request or any kind of a suggestion. My vision for this theme is to go back to what we had as much as possible before OCN rolled out their new theme on 11-16-2015. That's why this theme is called "OCN Classic". If this makes you wonder why the navbar exists in this theme, then that's easy to explain: the navbar is awesome. Sorry. smile.gif

You are free to customize this theme however you see fit. You are also free to use this theme as a base to make your own. If you need help with customizing this theme or making your own, then post a new thread in the Web Coding forum here on OCN and I'm sure one of OCN's experts will be able to help you out. You are still free to ask me for help because you never know! After all, I've been swimming in this theme's code for a long time now.



Known issues and bugs with this theme so far (this list includes issues that I have with OCN's new theme):

  • The Rep+ button has a dotted white focus border on it when you click it (and stays until you click somewhere else).
  • "Private Messages" should change to "New Message" when there's 1 new message, and "New Messages" when there are 2 or more.
  • The locked thread icon is nearly invisible.
  • The links to "Private Messages" and "Subscriptions" need to be transparent buttons that have a hover color in order to match the rest of the navbar buttons.
  • The Cancel button on the Edit Thread page doesn't have a hover color
  • The color of the expand/collapse buttons on the main page are almost invisible due to their color.
  • On the "Edit Thread" page, there is no selection indicator for the Cancel, Preview and Submit borders
  • Your OCN name on your profile menu is in all lowercase
  • When you log out, the favicon returns to being black. So, you only have the new favicon while you're logged in. I'm not going to look into this. It's not worth it.


Please tell me of more issues and bugs as you find them. Thank you!



Edit: I forgot to update the date and time of the last theme update. I apologize for that!

OCN Classic now has a one-click log-in!!!

Install this to get the update: https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/14169-ocn-classic

To see it in action, just log out right after this quick installation!

Every JavaScript script update like this requires the page to be reloaded that the JavaScript affects, but logging out will basically achieve the same thing.
