AvPGalaxy Gets New AvP Theme/Design!

If you’re reading this, then you can probably see that our new AvP theme is live at last. Now, we had our Alien Isolation theme since last July but with Neill Blomkamp’s Alien sequel, Shane Black’s Predator sequel and Prometheus 2 on the horizon, I felt it was time to get back to our roots and have a Xenomorph and a Predator back in the banner. Thanks to locusta for allowing me to use his alien render.

avpgalaxy AvPGalaxy Gets New AvP Theme/Design!

There’s some new features such as that the gallery and forum are mobile and tablet friendly now. There’s more self-loading pages than before; the forum gets some new icons and automatic twitter embeds. With three new movies in development, it has never been a better time to be part of the AvP community. Feel free the register and get involved in the forum or visit our Facebook page to get the latest updates from the world of Xenomorphs and Predators.

    So is there any reason the quote,modify and delete buttons no longer work.

    Is this mobile?
    No. Using my laptop.

    Heh the quote now works but the other two don't.

    What browser? And have you tried in a different browser?
    Firefox but it doesn't work in chrome either. Been a a couple of days now.

    Doesn't work in IE either.

    When trying to delete the post I get the pop up dialog box but clicking ok does nothing. Clicking the modify button does nothing at all.

    It's possibly the worst mobile site I've ever been on. It's far too zoomed in, pictures are too big for the screen so I can only see half of the picture. The topics are much harder to find and no longer let you know who and when last posted in them. It's almost unusable for me as I only use mobile these days. Is there anyway I can change it back to what it was?

    This.

    Darkness thanks for the responses. Yeah I was gonna suggest a "Desktop mode" toggle button because to me it's more efficient. Maybe it's just personal preference but I really do feel like I see more like this. Thanks for the option!

    I feel dumb. I've just realised that I can hold my phone side ways to flip the screen and I can see everything again. Shame we can't zoom out to see it anymore though. Quoting system is a big improvement. Good job with that guys.

    That isn't the intention.

    Again, it's supposed to be locked to your viewport so that you can't scroll around. It's not zoomed in - it's a responsive layout. I'll try adding bits of more information and making the fonts smaller. Pictures I can easily fix.

    I've had a look around and the forums that are mobile friendly are very similar to this one here. You can't have every bit of information that is on the desktop theme in a mobile theme too. Otherwise it becomes a mess. I didn't think the last post stuff is needed. You still can see which threads have new posts on them with the "New" icon.

    But by popular demand, I've added a "Desktop Theme" button at the bottom of the mobile theme which forces the desktop theme onto your mobile. It's only cookie based so if you ever delete your cookies, you'll revert back to the mobile theme.

    Liking it! One thing though - the new "FORUM" button on the main page (beneath the news scroller, alongside the ones for each of the new films) links to an interviews archive, not the actual forums!
  6. hfeldhaus
    Yes the forum. The main site works fine and is a big improvement but I'm really struggling with the forum. If  I hadn't clicked on this topic again I wouldn't have known you replied!

    Having a desktop site on a very tiny mobile screen isn't efficient at all. It takes me ages to zoom in and find something. I will keep on refining it but that's the way forward I'm afraid. Google actually penalizes sites for not being mobile-friendly.

    I fixed the quote thing. The buttons show up when you press the Q button.
    I'd say. It's a nightmare for me when I work on mobile formats. Good work with everything though. I'm really happy to see the predator make an appearance with the theme.

    This new format on mobile is horrible ;-; I'm never on my PC so it's frustrating. Apparently I can't quote people anymore o.O

    I like how it looks but it's just not efficient on mobile. Now the site loads up super zoomed in at the top of the page, which means i have to scroll all the way down to see all the topics. Before it would start pretty much basic desktop view and all i needed to do was zoom in a bit to see all the threads. Which would make things quick when looking for something specific. It's not that bad but anything that saves even a bit of time is a plus for me xD

    The theme looks great.

    It's definitely an excellent time to be an Alien/Predator fan. Three movies on the horizon, a recent gem of an Alien game with Isolation, more comics and novels coming, and...

    ... I'm probably forgetting something.

    We need a fourth AVP game for PC/PS4/XONE. Another game in the same mold, or a follow up to Isolation would also be a good thing.

    Back to the upcoming A/Pred/Prom flicks... It's crazy to think that in the span of the next three years or so we will see these three films along with a Blade Runner 2, Avatar sequels, and a bunch of new Star Wars films. Good times  :o

    Alright, everything is pretty much done now.

    Big thank you to locusta for allowing me to use his alien render in the banner. Apart from the new graphics, there's some new features.

    -The forum and gallery are now mobile and tablet friendly. It's not as good as the experience you'll get on tapatalk but for the average person on their phone, it works okay.
    -New headlines in the box above will be properly highlighted.
    -Youtube embeds are now slightly bigger.
    -Some new forum icons here and there.
    -Slightly different layout on topics now. Got rid of the repeated forum title above everybody's posts.
    -Automatic twitter embeds.

    All the above only applies to the default theme. New members won't be allowed to select any other theme. Just because they're so outdated. I do advise people, especially whoever is still using the two older default themes to change to the new one. You can do so by clicking the link in the announcement.

    Twitter embeds look like this:
