Coming Soon -- CurlTalk Redesign :)

What's up, CurlTalk

As you have seen, we're redesigning NaturallyCurly.com! For a blast from the past (2012), look how far we've come >> https://web.archive.org/web/20120103...allycurly.com/

It's been quite the experience redesigning 15 years of curly content and we're ready to carry the design change to our longest running feature -- the place where it all started -- CurlTalk!

THIS IS NOT A CHANGE IN FUNCTIONALITY, simply a change in design so that CurlTalk matches the rest of the website's look & feel. All the icons will remain and do the same things. I repeat -- the WAY curltalk works is not changing! Just makin' her look a little bit cuter

Attached are some photos of what you can expect. As you'll see, the blue/pink/orange combo is soooo 3 years ago lol. Everything will be uniform now, so when people land on CurlTalk they don't think they've been taken to some other place. Same NaturallyCurly goodness.

The change will be made next Monday (July 21). I made this a thread instead of my usual announcement so that you can easily communicate with me once the new design is live!

Talk to you soon!

Looks very polished!!! Hopefully the changeover runs smoothly!
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

I think it looks great! If you need help finding anything in the new design (should be in the same spot though) just let me know!

Signatures are bold though posts are not? And signatures of those we block also appear?

I like it except that other than entering the forum or remembering when I was last on I can't tell if there are new posts or not like I used to be able to. I understand if an icon next to the forum name that changes whether or not there are new posts doesn't match your redesign concept (that's how I used to tell). I can tell this will probably become annoying and more time consuming if I have to enter many forums individually to see if there are new posts, unless there is some other way to tell (and perhaps mark a forum read) without going in that I don't know. Perhaps you could make the titles of forums with new posts bolded and those without new posts not bolded or something like that?

I also don't see a way to click just for the unread posts in a thread and that I find extremely annoying. I think the redesign looks good, you just need to bring back some functionality (or tell me what not understanding).

There is too much white, which is making it very difficult to read the posts.

It also seems that blocked users are now shown.
It is also difficult to read the quotes within a post.

This is weird, just because I'm not used to it. Hopefully it will grow on me once I figure it out. I second the white.. I liked the gray background.

2c-3a - med-coarse - normal-high porosity - high density

NP/LP: CJ Daily Fix, KMF Whenever / Giovanni TTTT
RO/LI: Sevi Pumpkin Seed, CJ Argan & Olive Oil, YTBbs
DC/PROTEIN: KC Stellar Strands / CNPF
STYLER: Ouidad Climate Control, SS Firm Hold Gel
COLOR: henna, amla & indigo
: glycerin in high/low dews, polyquats, parabens
Also, when changing the color of text in a post, the colors seem to go way down to the bottom of the page... I had to scroll down to get the box of colors to show on my screen. We also seem to have lost the "Last Page" in searching a thread - unless I'm just not seeing it? Found it... double arrows, it's not labeled like it was previously.

Ok, this is not good. There needs to be a colour break up, or boxes or something, everything just blends togeather and makes it very hard to follow a discussion.

Yeah.. I don't like it. The links are weird with no buttons, the discussion is weird with no real break in between posts.

I'm having difficulty multi-quoting, I click the multi-quote button like I would before and nothing happens.

Plus the multi-quotes in the discussions are not broken up to see who quoted what. Before there were boxes around them to show who posted, who quoted, and what you quoted. I was going to give an example here, but can't get the button to work.

You know, I saw that thread and started to read the post, but with the new design of the site, it looked like it was about a change that happened in 2009 so I just stopped reading and asked in SIIDY, LOL
It's very difficult to read, IMO
3a/b, CG mostly.
Mexico City.
This is what you see with a multiple quote, way to difficult to distinguish who's saying what.

I wasn't trying to correct you, Scrills, just figured for anyone that hadn't been over there


It's pretty awful though, you can't discern who's saying what at all.
