This is a minor update to CreateBlog and mainly a CSS edit. Haven't completed the transition but it's getting late (or early rather) and I haven't slept much so I'll update this as I go along. If the forums look weird hit refresh (F5).


CHANGE LOG
-Expanded width from 770px to 960px
-Now supports Myspace Profile 2.0
-Updated myspace profile 1.0 preview
-Added HTML / Scripts to Scripts section
-Removed MT and WP layouts
-Added thumbnails for Scripts and Tutorials section (new browsing system)
-Added Affiliates link to the menu bar
-Larger images and thumbnails
-Fixed friend ID grabber
-Fixed tracker mapping issues
-Recount tool under my account -> settings to fix inaccurate count (submissions, favs, friends, top friends, etc)
-Added browse by metro
-Fixed tracker identifying issues
-Hovering over layout thumbs now show submit date and fav, view, and comment counts.


THINGS TO DO
-Bring back the featured banner (cb1 , cb2)
-Friends page not complete
-Add more countries and cities (i'll make a form so that staff members can add themselves)

wow this will take a while to get use too. would it be possible to get the boxed navigation on the top? without looks soo plain.
its really wiiiide.
look forward to having the skins back. Latte would be coming back right?

edit: aww man no affiliates link at the bottom?

also its great you didn't change the 100x100 icon for the 1.0 layouts. when i saw the new icon for the 2.0 i was dreading if it was the same for the 1.0

yeah for real i don't get why it needs to be so wide. it just feels like it's all out of balance to me with the tiny navigate and huge screen shots for the layouts, ect. it's so plain white and boring now on the front page mellow.gif


suppose i'll get used to it. i dont look at the homepage much anyway. at least some of the bugs are fixed.

you should keep Wp layouts, I tried submitting couple times but they never made it to the que :[ and Im sure there have been people who submitted, but after I upload the .zip file, a blank screen comes out, unlike when I submit myspace layouts, it says either I made a mistake during submission, or it will take a week to process the que 0_o
but I like the new CSS edit :]

At first glance, it's really... white and plain. The increased width is good, because I have widescreen. I agree with Blaqheartedstar too. The top navigation should have some colored bg, maybe?

Nice and big screenshots, though. XD

Woah, this is going to take a lot of getting used to.

I like it, but all the screenshots for the resources are super pixelated. That's the only thing that's bugging me.

Oh man, its so wide. hahaha. I like it though, I love the simplicity of the links up top, though they will take a bit of getting used to.

Dido.

I like everything but the new favicon and the nav!

It sorta messed up the profiles. The width will take some getting used to.

Cause i liked the thin minimalistic look.

But im glad your not done. haha

agreed. i guess that will change to a cb banner soon, which will be a little better. but still, it feels cluttered to me in general.

I think it's a bit wide, as well, but I guess now people can't get so pissy over thumbed images.

I think it was poorly done, and rushed imo. It is too cluttered, and you said you wanted it to look more professional. But I think it makes it look more distasteful though.

Yea. I like the old layout better. And yea, Gabi's right, I hate how the some of the screenshots are pixelated. And a lot seems cluttered. sad.gif

I hardly ever have my windows maximized, so having to scroll a shit ton to read things is a pain in the ass. I can't even see the whole fast reply box at once, and this window is more than half the width of my screen. I'd rather have to thumb people's pictures, thanks.
