Tolkien Gateway > Council > New skin, cavendish

I've uploaded a new skin called cavendish (Preview) which is based on Let me know what you think, if you like it you can make it your default in your Preferences. There are a few things I'm going to try and change:

  • Move "Personal tools" below Navigation.
    • Done.
  • Fix the "Browse A B C..." area, not sure how to integrate those links yet.
    • Just removed them for now.
  • Maybe in the top yellow bar add some cursive Tengwar.
  • Move the logo to the right and down a little.
  • Make the width of everything slightly larger and maybe shrink the menu a bit.

I'd really like to get a solid skin out there that is more Tolkienish than that boring Monobook theme, this might be a better one to base the skin off of. Let me know what you guys think. --Hyarion 13:31, 14 October 2006 (EDT)

Well, I've switched to it, because it is now the default. Some comments:
  • Don't like the font as well. It seems harder to read for me.
  • The Tolkien Gateway title at the upper left seems out of place; it should be at least on a background the same color as the title bar.
More later. I've got to eat breakfast, but I'll be right back. --Narfil Palùrfalas 08:10, 17 October 2006 (EDT)
