Re: New forum software

The Tabula Rasa theme has been there for a while. Search for ‘forum style’ – in the advanced search ;) – and it’s the first topic in the list…

Re: New forum software

I just think that you can never ever find a design that works that way for everyone.

Offering choice is a good thing, but I tabula has much less “computer administrative debris” (one of my favorite Tuftian expressions); it features the content more prominently as the interface, and is more inline with the txp look (at least as long as the new textpattern.com) which I think makes it a more obvious choice as the default.

But you were not seriously comparing txpish with comic sans I hope? If this forum was using comic sans I’d agree with any proposed change…

Yes, of course I was exaggerating a little :)

I totally missed it.
I only remember it was not present at the time I first signed up.

Thanks for that, Matt. Somehow I managed to only enter the terms that produce 0 hits, but I get the same numbers as you. Whew…


Txp tags not doing what you expect? Learn to use a tag trace. And the Tag Reference.

Re: New forum software

edit: Er, unfortunately I’m so acquainted with txpish I fear I’ll continue using it.

Anyhow I’m not suggesting to take out “txpish”. I just think it shouldn’t be the default. It’s not fair to the newcomers to burden them with the conditioned forum veterans’ beloved biotope. ;-) I do think it looks dated, isn’t as effective as tabula and is less consistent with the appearance of txp elsewhere…

ok… I think I’ve said enough already. and it seems nobody else agrees. Blasted democracies…

I’m beginning to suspect that it just stops processing the search when the number of results is er… overwhelming ;) plugin, forum, article, tag… Who would seriously want to search for those words anyway ;)

Re: New forum software

yeah… maybe someone installed the “stupid-search-blocker” module, it’s a feature! ;-)

Never noticed it Els, missed it.

As for making it the default, even in the thread you link to, many people agreed that it should be the default for new users and guests. Keep in mind that current users retain their txpish choice, no matter what the default changes to.

(Quoting Bert, but replying to everyone who said the same) I personally have no objections at all to making Tabula Rasa the default style! I can see that, as well in this thread as in the older one, the majority of posters is in favour of it. It’s just not up to me to decide, sorry.
