Eh to be frank, I liked the old one more. The new layout is bulky and makes it much more annoying to moderate. Then again I do have minimalist tendencies when it comes to design and art.

Not bad at all, heh ;)
You could aswell make your own skin, and add that :P

Theres a few issues on the Main Page, according to rki comperr already knows about them?

Stuff I noticed:
- Background isnt centered. Fix: background-position: center top; with background-repeat: repeat-x;
- Top/Bottom Tribal images arent centered either. Fix: margin: auto <whatever>px;
- Headers of Forum Categories span 100%, while the rest is fixed width. Fix: add width.
- Headers of Forum Subcategories (above Graveyard) do not span the whole table. Fix: seems to be a template problem, set colspan there to 5 and remove that &nbsp; td with class catdiv that spans for 3 columns.
- Report and Delete buttons look a bit out-of-place. I'd move them next to Quote/Reply.

I'll edit this post if I notice something else.

I don't see exactly what your talking about. Can you post the EXACT line # in the CSS file or the EXACT HTML you want me to change?

Stuff I noticed:
- Background isnt centered. Fix: background-position: center top; with background-repeat: repeat-x;LOOKING INTO
BhaaL:
Code: Select all
body {
   <old stuff here>
   background-position: center top;
}

- Top/Bottom Tribal images arent centered either. Fix: margin: auto <whatever>px;LOOKING INTO
BhaaL: they have align="middle" specified. Correct would be align="center"
Code: Select all
<td align="center">
<img src="http://www.hackthissite.org/images/quoteheader.php" alt="">
</td>

Code: Select all
<td align="center">
<img src="./styles/HTS/theme/images/bottom.jpg" alt="">
</td>

- Headers of Forum Categories span 100%, while the rest is fixed width. Fix: add width.FIXED
- Headers of Forum Subcategories (above Graveyard) do not span the whole table. Fix: seems to be a template problem, set colspan there to 5 and remove that &nbsp; td with class catdiv that spans for 3 columns.FIXED
- Report and Delete buttons look a bit out-of-place. I'd move them next to Quote/Reply.LOOKING INTO
BhaaL: They look fine to me tho...Apart from the fact that they are larger than Quote/Reply, and thus somewhat break the line...


See above notes.

Edit:
Carbon stuff
- Buttons in general do not fit the dark style (New Topic, Reply, Edit etc...). This includes the rather light Rank Images.
- Header Image still wrong? The CSS looks fine, but it isnt used (yet?). You said smth about CSS Cache, probably clear that @comperr.
- The .panel style (inside colours.css) is too light, change background-color: #DDDDDD; to something more dark. background-color: #666; is neat :P
Just keep in mind the foreground color has to match it too, else it is unreadable. This is ".panel" (inside colours.css) with color: xxx and also ".content h2, .panel h2" (inside colours.css). There is a Hyperlink at the "Mark Forums Read" page, but I couldnt find the context yet.
- [code]-Boxes are too light. Change background-color of "dl.codebox" (inside colours.css) to something darker, background-color: #333; should do.
- Nested Quotes are shown light. Check the contexts "blockquote blockquote" and "blockquote blockquote blockquote"
