Messy SMF Icons

Some of the icon look a little messy.
Such as new thrread and new poll.
Also some of the small icon have no text description.

Yup, we're aware of this.  Not all of the buttons have been skinned yet.

'Post reply' text is very small for my eyes.

Re: Messy SMF Icons

I only discovered what the "notify of replies" icon did by looking at the alt: could do with having supporting text like the "post reply" icon does.

Again, not so much a bug, as a preference - I find it hard to distinguish between the 'no new posts' and 'new posts' icons on the index page.
Any chance of making the icons more contrasting?


Sorry to reply here but the 'Quote' icon and the 'Quick Reply' box are missing
in the Wishlists topic.
Subject concerned 'Recent unread topics'

James you are guilty of scanning the post and missing the point! The point about dragging the Address field to the Links bar in IE is an automated process in IE but since it uses the page name to index it, it will erase the PUG one because that carries the same name. The user has no opportunity to edit the name of the link created, only to cancel or go ahead.
I have created one now by creating an Internet link on the Desktop and then dragging it to the 'Links' bar. The Name field was one that I typed in to create it, so no problem there. If you use IE try it yourself (the former 'quick' way) to see what I mean.
HTH and clarifies.

Thanks for the reply.
See quoted text, James, otherwise I'd have done a rename but not possible
I agree there are a number of ways of getting around it but it is a bug*** none the less and the non-techy types could lose their PUG link quite easily.

The rename *is* possible though! Its just that you have to rename the existing one, since you don't get the chance to edit the new one as its created. Wink

Thanks again, James.
I must admit that that idea must have eluded me! I couldn't think what to do to avoid losing the current one when trying to drag the new one to the 'Links' bar.

New icons in place.  Look a bit better?

Yes Smiley
A sharper range of smileys (more definition) would be good though, also.
I don't suppose there's any point in asking (again) for a border each side of the posts, to separate them from the wide white margins?
Even a very thin border would do  Roll eyes

Mitch should be producing an alt style sheet for the forums when he gets a chance. 
Yeah, nicer smilies would be good too.    Cool
