    If I run a decent website and want to make a big change, I really need a lot of confidence to do this.

    Hello,

    NamePros tends to make a lot of small visual changes and improvements that over time add up to its unique theme.

    Interestingly, visitors ask us often (as recently as yesterday) what theme we use because they're starting a forum in another industry and would like to use the NamePros design, but every design change is custom, so unless someone steals it without permission, you won't see anything that looks exactly like NamePros elsewhere.

    Thanks for taking the time to offer a new design for everyone to consider!

    The "More..." link at the bottom of widgets is a good idea. The functionality already exists, but many visitors don't realize that the headings of most widgets are links to view more.

    The down arrow on the username is also a good idea to indicate that there are more options available there.

    This may be a misunderstanding of how thread alerts work, but we reached out to you in a direct message just to be sure.

    That's the idea, since it allows users from other forums to be familiar with many aspects of it, and we hope any modifications by NamePros are for the better.

    There is a "Desktop Version" link at the bottom of the website for mobile devices that might help.

    Agreed; the search is a major pain point for us. We hope to improve it.

    Let's please keep that discussion in its own thread.

    The tech team tends to like that kind of theme/mode, so there's a good chance it will happen one day. :)

    Example, please?

    Thanks.

    Thank you, I am glad you said that, for example:

    and of course you could turn off the functions in the setting if you feel annoying.

    I like a website that has extremely a lot of good functions but the theme is very clean.

    I don't want things to start shaking. It will make this site look tacky IMO.

    Maybe, it's just an example, or maybe when the users get used to it they can't get rid of it anymore.:sneaky:

    Do you want to make the site better, or just more amusing?

    I guess to make the website better the content is most important, the theme is just for comfort purposes. I am just suggesting to having people discuss, besides I don't run the forum.

    and I don't think it's amusing, I will be happy to see shaking if someone "quote" me and response, that happens rarely.

    If you hover over a topic for 1 second, it will show a snippet of it.

    Is that what you're suggesting for #3, or are you suggesting something else?

    That's ok, I am just kinda self picky that like round shape and smooth move, I think the result is clear most people feel good with the current theme, everyone has his own vision maybe I was wrong about the idea.

    I'm kind of familiar with XF themes and I find this one is minimalist and just perfect. The only thing that might need a lift is the logo design, but that's another topic.
