Zetaboards Conversion; Now that we have just been converted...

Hey guys,

As you could probably have seen, we have been converted to Zetaboards. YAY :music:. I understand that the board is now at a really pathetic looking state. But remember that TON used to look pathetic too :P

The AdminCP and all other stuff are really really new for us and we don't really know how to use it first.

Since the other admins are sleeping, I am going to make some decisions myself (because I think it's really important).

Due to the fact that now we have theme selector, anyone can have their own themes (but please, not too many themes xD). So, I would like to ask you guys to help us out here. Go to this link and click on the Theme Generator link and generate themes that you like. When it's done, PM me so that I can put it up as the TON Theme/Background.

Some new features are listen in these links: here and here. Please read those if you are interested in the new features of this board.

I am pleased to inform you guys that our topics, links, sheetmusic, tabs and articles are still here. I'm also pleased to say that our PIP System is still here (thank God! I was pretty worried about this) :pirate: and the secret PIPs of course, are still there for you to discover :fly: And all our emoticons are still here too! =D

I understand that it will take time for us to get used to the new look of TON, I mean I was like :omg: when I first saw it. Please be patient as Admins and Moderators try to better our forum.

Other than that, welcome to TON ZetaBoards! Le Ton always! :TON:

Well when we first made the forum, we wanted ZB, but we couldn't be asked to move the entire forum (IF) to ZB one, so we waited for it to be automatically converted, didn't know it took this long.

Nothing wrong with the old one. Just this one have more features. Of course changes are not easy! But yeah, I'm pretty sure we'll get used to it soon.

Oh I just love this:

Personally, I don't like the new layout, but once we get a theme it will hopefully be better, I'm gonna miss the thousands of ocarinas floating the the background...but TON is TON so it will still be awesome XD

I've been up all night, so maybe I'm too tired. :(
I know you have all worked very hard on this, but...

The bloody search function still doesn't work.

Sorry.

I'm having trouble with the quoting function. Like when quoting part of the message, then responding to that part, then quoting another section of the same message and responding to that part. With the old forum format, once you previewed your post, the quoted message and your resonse were in the same field (instead of 2 separate ones) With this new format, the quote and your response remain in separate fields. They can't be combined.
If I'm missing something here, plese tell me!

I think I can help you with that, I'm pretty familiar with the coding here.

To quote someone, without using the quote button, you type

[ QUOTE = Name ] quote goes here [ / QUOTE ]

Without the spaces of course :)

After playing around with the Theme Generator, I've given up as it's way too many options for me. So I hunted around for already made themes and came up with some that might look nice.

This is Autumnea: http://s2.zetaboards.com/ifskinzone/topic/648852/1/
A preview: http://s1.zetaboards.com/ZeusTZC/index/?setskin=13315
I'm afraid it looks a bit too 'cool blue' though, so I hunted around for some warmer colored ones.

Wiredvage: http://s2.zetaboards.com/ifskinzone/topic/648711/1/
Preview: http://s1.zetaboards.com/ZeusTZC/index/?setskin=13670
This would look even better if we replaced the black/dark grey with our old background. Sort of spiffying it up.

Enchanted Wood: http://s2.zetaboards.com/ifskinzone/topic/642314/1/#new
Preview: http://s1.zetaboards.com/woodtest/index/
I rather like this one.

I'm sure I could hunt up some more, but after lunch. :)

[edit] To make it more customized in a second, we could convert all the text to the old font and size. That would go a lot towards making it like the old one.

I made one, but I think it needs some work. Here it is anyway. There are just so many fields that I don't really know what they are yet.

Question, could we just load the old look back on? At least use it for an interim look so the converted layout doesn't blind our eyes..

I hope so, I loved the old look. But if not, I will just have to bear with it until TON is pretty again! where's the ninja?

shadowyi - I like Autumnea!

I couldn't get the generator to work right for me,
but made a few graphics and made a screenie of how they would look together.

Hey guys!
Sorry that I wasn't online at all yesterday, I had problems with accessing the server.

Anyway, I'm really sorry if you don't like this layout BUT

InvisionFree will cancel every support for InvisionFree boards once the conversion is completed on every server.
InvisionFree is a very outdated forum system and the support was really bad.

Of course you hate this forum now, on the other hand: You just have to get used to it.
Zeta offers a lot more features and is way more comfortable to use.

And you should have looked at TON's 1st version, it looked even crappier than this. :XP:

Moonsyne: Hmm, I'm not sure if I like the color combination of purple and dark grey.. only in the sense that they might be too depressing and overhanging. I keep aiming for warm colors of orange, yellow, and red to create that welcoming feeling. I love the banner you created though! We definitely need to use that.

Yeah, I like tans and browns. The colors I chose with the generator were browns and tans, with some green and red.
I don't know if there is a way to show of preview of it though.

When more people make skins will they appear in the 'choose a theme' box' at the bottom?
I'm not good at stuff like this so hope there will be 'communal skins' (hehe!).
Anything's better than this blue and orange malarky...

No worries Ocarikun, all of us are in the process of learning! I'm confused myself.

Btw guys, Gaspoo told me that the CSS edit for Server 15 (our server) is faulty at the moment, so we can't change the themes... I'm sorry guys! =D

That's why I can't try out your theme, Turbo!
