    [IMGLEFT]http://www.themouthpiece.com/images/tmpnews.gif[/IMGLEFT] Yet More Options... tMP releases another User style..:)

    Some of you may have noticed that we have been testing some functionality on tMP during these last few days... well... this was because we have been trying out and configuring a new alternative style that is available now as an alternative to the default and tMP303 styles. This latest style has a bright, fresh look and appeal and as such have decided to called it 'Clean' and we hope it will add to your viewing pleasure.

    The 'Clean' style is selectable from the drop down menu at the bottom of all tMP screens and you can also set this as your default theme within your USerCP if you wish.

    If you have any suggestions as to how we could improve this style we'd love to hear from you so please contact myself or indeed any member of the tMP team and as ever, we will make the ncessary amendments.

    Enjoy...

    Really like this one, took a minute or 2 to get used to it but I think I'll stick with it for a while

    I've just been trying out this new them, and it looks realy nice (although I'm not so fond of the fixed page width on my big, high resolution screen ;) )

    Only one small question: How do I get to the Articles section with the new theme? Im the tMP theme, there is a button at the top and a link at the bottom...

    Jan: re Articles.... oops...!!! I overlooked including that link... I will add this later for you. However, I still have to make several amendments to the Arcade System so that it will work with this style.

    Jan & Super_Sop: I will be including a full-width version of this new 'Clean' style within a few days, which I am certain will look great on your large resolution monitors.

    Hows that!!!?? :)

    Very nice. Fixed-width is OK for me, since I'm generally running my browser in a smallish window (multitasking, oooo!)

    I think I'll stick with the default style for the time being. The Clean style glares too much for me (background is too white).

    BUT can we have the the contributors' details back on the left side where they used to be, please (i.e. not horizontal across the top as now)? I prefer the resulting narrower column article width for easier reading.

    Hi Brian

    I made a change to the way the code work yesterday that now allows users to select where they want this users information displayed. By default it is at the top but you can change this by doing the following;

    UserCP>Edit Options>Thread Display Options>User Information Layout>Choose "Top" or "Left" from pull-down menu


    That should do it for you.

    I think this new look is quite cool,:clap: but I'm afraid I just cannot use it.

    Y'see - the 'themouthpiece.com' logo at the top doesn't have a christmas hat - and that just isn't right :):eek:

    I feel rather naked without it:biggrin:

    Possibly. I do like the look of it although, like has been said earlier in the thread, a wider version to fill up the screen a bit more would top it off. But, hey, fantastic job, John. Well appreciated. :D:tup:lol:

    Cheers.

    Phew!! I feel fully clothed again. Thanks John. ;):D

    I'm gonna give this 'Clean' style a go. See how I get on with it. It certainly is very easy on the eye - which I s'pose will help all the late night, drink induced posters ;):cool:.

    Quick question about the 'Clean' layout.

    In the tmp '3.03' layout at the bottom right hand corner of every post in a thread there is a lttle box that, if you click on it, will take you back to the top of the page. But it isn't on the 'Clean' layout?:( Is it something that's gonna be added 'cos that is so useful?

    Cheers
