    VB1: HotUKDeals - VB1 Edition - Fix some UI issues, tidy up HUKD [Mod OK'd repost]

    Banned
    OK a mod has told me I can now repost this.

    This is a tool to update the look and feel of HUKD and hopefully fix and improve your use of the site.

    It CANNOT fix coding bugs and errors, it can only fix UI and design issues.

    Jaybird is releasing a probably better version of this soon, but for now, read the info in the second post to continue.

    OK,

    1) Download Firefox - Download Link
    2) Download Stylish Addon - Download Link
    3) Click the following link, and press "Install with Stylish" in the top right corner - HotUKDeals VB1 Edition

    Job Done

    Includes nicer(?) UI, bigger text area fields, and text links instead of the confusing little buttons.

    Basic list of whats changed:

    Old hotukdeals logo
    removal of crappy tagline
    blue header (to make it obvious you have a mod installed)
    Tidies topic/forum active menu items
    New more-forumy look
    Removal of HUKD blog section
    Tidy up of sidebar (activity box etc)
    Small post buttons replace with text links - bit buggy but useful i think
    Larger post text area
    Larger edit post text area
    Larger New PM text area

    What like a developer or summut?

    Actually some bugs could be fixed with greasemonkey, which I think jaybird is looking into, but the truth is: i don't know how :P CSS is my game!

    Why bother? It was rubbish the first time you posted it...

    This thread isn't really the update, it could have been done with the old site.

    Thanks for your concern though - I'll make a note of it.

    okay it works but the way the voucher code box is formatted it just looks like a background box like the hottest today. It doesn't look like a clickable search box.

    Original Poster Banned

    you are right - i ummd and ahhd about that, but i kinda like the light green. ill fix tomorrow, but ill prob recolour the hottest deals section.

    btw, im aware the settings area is quite messy, but if you see any specific bugs, or features you want me to look at, post here and ill have a good session on improving it tomorrow.

    out of interest, is anyone liking the larger text boxes for posting?

    wow old skool, I think I only started posting on here when it was upgraded but I was a lurker on the old layout, forgot what it looked like though.

    Do prefer how it has changed though from the old update and this one now is growing on me

    as I can read and don't need little pictures to show me what things do I'm liking it.

    it's also much tidier without all that 2 day old baby crap at the side and it just looks better.

    good work vb1.

    thanks dude, just annoying about the report this comment buglet. i could fix it with greasemonkey, but would need another approval from the mods for that.

    The old layout was the best, the one from like 2007.

    Way before I registered but that was a nice layout / design (especially the deals section) forum was just generic vb but still a hell of a lot nicer than now or even what it changed into then.

    I think they should do away with the day release policy.

    I like the blue
