    Changes in appearance at BWB

    The format of Buddhism Without Boundaries has been unchanged for about 9 years. Aloka and I have been looking at a way of brightening up the appearance of the web pages, without turning it into something unrecognisable.

    We have a full copy of the new design here: https://test.buddhismwithoutboundari...Bull/forum.php

    That link takes you to a snapshot of BWB from about the first week in January, so "New Posts" reveals nothing at all because nothing in it is new. Otherwise it's complete. You can't post anything there, it's just for looking at.

    We have changed the colour of the banner lettering, darkened the header and added rounded corners to all the section headings. There's a small change to the colour scheme in general. We haven't yet updated the format for viewing on a mobile phone.

    I would like to know how it looks to you. Do you prefer the 'old' or the 'new'? And I would welcome all and any comments on the differences. Unless there's a majority opinion against it, we will be bringing in the new-look forum in the near future.

    Woodscooter.

    Sure you can afford the paint? Seriously, it looks fine.

    Thanks, Philg. I think we will soon get used to these changes and we'll hardly notice them.

    I'm voting for the new version today.

    Thanks for all the positive comments and for all the votes 'for'.

    Now I'm working on the knotty problem of how to combine all the members, posts and PMs with the revised design. Each time I try to merge, I end up with a hodge-podge (nice word!) of the old and new. I'll spare you the details. Just to say that we will get there, in time, without losing any of the discussion threads that have been contributed over the years.

    To be honest, I don't think I would have noticed the change.

    I visit on average twice a month, and I do think it's minor changes. There is no "either is ok" vote, hence no vote from me

    If I should point something out, the text "A friendly lay.." is hard to see. White text on bright background, isn't optimal; but maybe that' son purpose (?)
