Yeps you’ve seen it right,… after abusing the default vBulletin theme for far too long we’ve now managed to complete the redesign of the forum and launch it!
We really love the new design and hope you will enjoy it too
You will probably notice the nice header image. It is an image by Obiwan_C. We will change the header image periodically. It will always be an image posted on this website.
The main design has been made by Samo Korosec from the froodee design bureau. He also designed many other projects within the Blender Community, like the Blender 2.0 and 2.3 manuals.
The forum template is based on the vBulletin default theme, but has been heavily modified.
Most of the icons are from the famfamfam silk icon set, which is a free set of icons published under the Creative Commons Attribute 2.5 license. Some of the icons have come from the Tango Project, those are also published under the same license.
You will notice not all of the links at the top are actually working right now. This is because we’ve got some plans to expand the website. I won’t give a time frame for this right now. But it will be ready, when it’s ready
One thing we will be doing soon, is re-launching planet.blenderartists.org (probably next week).
Though we’ve tried to test the new design on all common platforms & browsers this is almost impossible to do. It is still possible that you actually experience some flaws in the design.
If you think the flaw is an actual bug, please post about it in the website & forum section of this website.
We try to support the following browsers:
Internet Explorer 6.0+ (though we haven’t tried IE 7, yet)
Thanks to everyone who helped out!
