If you change the board style in the Board preferences to ProSilver it saves a lot of space. and changes a lot of other stuff.


Thanks. It is much better yet.

Ugh......this new design is giving me a headache....search term "gdi+" no longer works and when I do a search then the search results do not give the information that you would need....
It would be nice if you could choose the old system in preferences...

I also suggest using Topic as standard result display instead of posts.

It looks much better now, thank you very much.

I vote for this one also.

I'd also like to say that the new look of autohotkey.com page looks looks nice. It's clearer and more appealing than the previous one.

I think the old forums banner used to redirect you to the main page. That would be a nice feature to put back.

While this topic gets the attention, would it be possible to strike through a text with tags on the forum?

That's a very bad good idea.

Yes there should be a link to the main site from the forum. I always find orphaned forum sub sites annoying...
I'd prefer links on pages to open in new windows.

With regards to the main site, the design is looking good so far. I'd suggest:

Move the quotes to a side column. At the moment that part is a horizontal wall-of-text. Do people really make quotes their overriding reason for trying something? For me (as a non programmer) a feature list was at least as important if not more so (and in particular the ease of creating and using GUIs was the eureka moment). Hence...

Move the feature list higher up so you don't have to scroll to see it.

Move the search box near the top links menu. The point of allowing searching is to answer being lost/frustration so it should be as obvious and immediate as possible. Having to search for a search feature is counter intuitive.

Add a splash of color as in Sumon's "simple" design (maybe some simple graphics). This would make the main page more inviting and appear less text heavy. Consider a bit of color in the logo as well. Member "0x150||ISO" has done this subtly with his avatar, it's quite effective. I'd also suggest a small montage of ahk GUI designs would be a strong selling point and illustrate that ahk can do more than hotkeys/macros.

Add an explicit link to the AHK_L page as the most active up to date version which has all the same capabilities and ease of use as ahk_B with new features until the new hybrid replacement is developed (I would have preferred it replacing basic but obviously that's now at odds with the executive decision that's been made). Still it's good at least a link to alternative versions/forks was granted.

Well, I was about to post this...

When you have many tabs open its impossible to tell between autohotkey.net/.com now.

...lol what? They are different...& have always been...

autohotkey.com/favicon.ico

http://autohotkey.com/favicon.ico
autohotkey.net/favicon.ico

https://ahknet.autoh...com/favicon.ico[/list]
...which, to me, looked like this...

...then I Shift-Reloaded the .com favicon.ico & now I see what you are seeing. :cry:

Now I want the pretty H back :!: ...or at least an A icon made exactly from the H icon.

OMFG, the AutoHotkey forum is IP.board now (yuck!)...I may not be able to continue coming here (& I love AutoHotkey)...I liked phpBB, but not this...ugh...

Note...
I may not reply to any topics (specifically ones I was previously involved in), mostly cuz I can't find the ones I replied to, to continue helping, but also just cuz I can't stand the new forum...phpBB was soo perfect. This is 100% the opposite of "perfect".

I also semi-plan to start my own, phpBB-based AutoHotkey forum (or take over the old one, if he'll let me)
PM me if you're interested in a new phpBB-based forum (I need to know if anyone would use it)
How (or why) did they create the Neil Armstrong memorial site (neilarmstronginfo.com) BEFORE he died?
