New_Web page look

Recommended Posts

3dcoat has a new web layout/look .?  just want to make sure of this as I would of thought a announcement would of been posted is all thought it might of got hacked redirected . its day one but I liked the old one better already. The home page has no green in it as this color I associate with 3Dc  the Logo  3DCOAT is blocky text  the A  looks kinda like a R . As I didn't see the reg Logo I was suspicious.  For me the white background and blue text in the furon  is thumbs down .    just my opinion  change is a good thing.       green is the new blue :(

Well i like the new design.

 

Looks more professional and reputable.

I would like to see more promo pictures in the slider.

 

Another thing is when i click community to reach the forums. It took me some time to find the link to the forum.

By default i get the client list which is not what i expect when clicking community.

 

Please announce such changes in the forums and especially via Twitter, Facebook etc. This will generate more attention for this great software!

I agree, new look is great!

 

I kinda prefer the older darker color theme though. this one doesnt seem to match the colors of the software.

 

but otherwise great job! makes everything look a more professional and reputable!

First, after I got over the shock (had just visited yesterday) of the update. I have to say first impression is positive.

 

Please warn next time a complete change is going to be made, as my mind immediately went to a hack as well.

 

Rock On.

Oh dear, oh my.

 

I'm already half blind from 30 + years of staring at high intensity (bright) computer monitors.  It's getting to the point where I almost cannot read black text on stark white backgrounds.  I won't even use software that features this theme.

 

For all you young whipper snappers who think you will never have this problem - and that your eyes are indestructible (I never gave this issue a thought when I was young, either) -  YOU'LL SEE  .  .  .  or rather  .  .  .  you won't !

 

White backgrounds with black text is the new theme trend (which is really just a recycling of an old theme trend).  Why be trendy? - be practical - long term - instead.

 

My vote is to allow the user to change to a dark background with light colored text (not yellow, please).

I hear you on this...as these 60 odd year eyes --- White is blinding on a Monitor.. I tend to like a more darker neutral color. I can live with the white but when viewing the "Finished Works" images at larger sizes the background does not get grayed out. The white background is very distracting when viewing the images.

When viewing image attachments in the WIP thread the background does get grayed out.

As long as we have ye olde dark forum skin available, I'm happy. :) I too value my eyes and try to use dark themes and skins wherever and whenever I can. This is one of the reasons I haven't upgraded my phone to Lollipop.

I never visit the main page anyway, so it doesn't bother me much that it's now bright. Besides, there are browser plugins like Stylish that allow you to use custom CSS for web pages. You can use them as a last resort to overwrite the style you don't like.

Yea if we could get a dark skin for this forum that'd be great! For instance when viewing which users are online people with yellow text(new users) are completely unreadable. 

 

Also the images on the front-page of the site are pixelated and the features section should be collapsible, right now they only collapse when clicking on a new feature.

I went to the bottom of the page where it says change theme and selected 3dcoat and it has gone back to normal old view.

Ah nice!

 

it would be nice however to make sure new forum is accessible as possible for new comers. Make sure everything is visible and easy to navigate without irritation.

If anyone's interested, I can share a CSS override for the main page that converts it to a dark theme (requires Stylish plugin for Firefox / Pale Moon / Chrome or compatible browsers).

Other then it being too bright (and changing from green as the 'official' color to Teal?), I love it.

Always felt the old website design didn't feel professional enough, and this does a wonderful job remedying that.

The Tapatalk 3D-Coat forum app on my iPhone stopped updating. I didn't realize it until just now. I think this new forum design broke the Tapatalk connection somehow. It's funny because the app still worked and acted like everything was normal, but there hadn't been any updates for a day or two. I thought maybe people were starting to lose interest in 3D-Coat. Then I decided to check the desktop version and BOOM! New website! Strange that there were no announcements saying the website design would be changed.

Anyways, like everybody else, I don't like the bright white background. I prefer a dark one (better for the eyes). I think the PolyHertz proposed changes (post #18 above) are very good. That way the old color theme is kept, the background is easy for the eyes, and the site will still look new.

i agree with the proposed adjustments. teal should be replaced for the official green, and the background should be mode dark.

 

@ajz3d: please share the stylish modification :)

I really liked the new site. It makes 3D Coat more professional looking. 

Just need to update the logo inside the software as well.

Definitely more pro looking.

 

New site will get things better and i quarantine this.

 

Many users including me introduce 3d coat all day 24 / 7  to other pros in the industry.

 

Coming in and have everything looking good is a huge plus.

This is true. I shared the new site on my Facebook and the first reply says "now it looks like a good app".

These days we really need to pay attention to the presentation.
