Is there a reason that there is no menu on the left to find AC:R videos?

I mean, I know the whole "creating a menu takes time in HTML" reason. But any other one? Has there been site etiquette in the past where you don't create the menu until X videos are posted? Until the next game comes out?

Just wondering.... Smile

hmm...

Maybe it's because I have non-standard colors and the css files aren't defined in the HTML? let me try the standard color....

There was issues with certain parts of the site displaying before and, as you have said, we discovered the issue was using any colour scheme other than Mediterraneo. I'm sure Stab will be onto it soon. Smile

Yep.
If I log out, I see the menu just fine.
If I change the theme to the site default, I see them just fine.
If I change back to green, the AC:R menu is gone.

My guess is a theme css file, or site equivalent, is missing AC:R information? Maybe?

Yeah, it seems to be a similar problem to before. Aquamarine displays this:

...but Mediterraneo displays the AC:R menu just fine.

As I said, I'm sure Stab will see this and sort out the issue soon. Smile

Yep, don't see the AC:R menu either.

While I'm on it... the "Hate ads? Subscribe." on the right bar is also missing in the other colors. Smile

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I will get these things copied to the other color schemes shortly.

Also, I've noticed that, with an alternative colour scheme set, the user information box at the top of each comment remains pink-red:

Is this by design or an oversight in the colour schemes? Sorry to be picky! Shy

Alright, I think all the color schemes are fixed now. Let me know if something looks out of place. I also restored Nocturnal, Olivia, Pink Plastic and Shiny Tomato. For some reason these four color schemes seem to disappear on me. Use at your own risk. Trig's nuke LOL, Nocturnal and Shiny Tomato are actually two of my favorites.

Yeah, I'm aware but that's going to be really hard to fix. This whole "let each user pick a color scheme" isn't the way Drupal themes were designed to work. I added the feature myself in a quick and dirty fashion which is why it's clunky and error prone.

No problem, Stab. I understand a lot of hard work goes into this site and I'm perfectly happy with the way it is; it was just something I noticed. Smile

I'm quite liking Aquamarine myself. Wink

Done.

Those who use Mediterrano will notice that the pink background has changed to yellow. Previously I used the Mediterrano background color from the breadcrumbs (where it says "Home > Video Menu?" above ^) as the background for the author pane. There wasn't a straightforward way to generalize this and make it depend upon the selection of color scheme.

Instead, I ended up taking the scheme's base color (i.e. behind "Search this site:", below the site logo) and copying that to the author pane. For many of the schemes this is a gray color. Schemes with more interesting base colors include Aquamarine, Chocolate, Olivia and Teal Top.

It looks great Stab! The neutral grey goes well with many of the schemes, especially Shiny Tomato, and I love the bright blue for Aquamarine. Smile
