Re: Another Admin Skin

I wouldn’t call it Mac-like at all – it’s harsh on the eyes IMHO. What I like about the default theme is it’s content-focused (for the most part) without any distracting gradients. Still, it’s nice to see new themes popping up.

I neither like it. It’s just so messy and that gradient is distracting. There is also too much colors, that are completely oposites. So, that has nothing to do with Mac, as Mac looks way cooler (in most cases OSes are kinda bad looking btw).

Yep, it’s nice to see new themes – but it’s the only point that i have for this one.

Cheers!

Re: Another Admin Skin

It makes me sad to see how much my work is appreciated. Of course, tastes are different, but something more feedback but I would have expected.

over and out…

Re: Another Admin Skin

Michael, admin themes are hard to design because most TXP users are used to a simple and clean backend. So far, I haven’t come across an admin theme I liked.

If you were to improve it, removing all gradients, especially the background, would be a good start. Your theme just feels too heavy with the gradients and drop shadows.
