It's actually overlaying the image over the whole site, I think, according to sana. If it was an actual background image, I think this could be prevented.

Yeah, I apparently wasn't exactly right. In actuality I applied the properties

Code: Select all

opacity:0.9;
filter:alpha(opacity=90);

to various CSS elements of the forums, such as forumbg, postbg, row1 (the brighter post backgrounds), row2 (the darker post backgrounds) etc., effectively turning EVERYTHING contained in those elements, including text and images, translucent.

Now I figured out how to affect only the background by using:

Code: Select all

background-color: rgba(17,17,17,0.5);

It causes a slightly different visual effect, though; the general "background" tables (visible between forum segments) are more opaque than the post tables contained inside. :o

EDIT:
Damn! Internet Explorer ( up to 8 ) doesn't seem to support RGBA, instead drawing a solid color. I will use the old opacity fallback for it.

Set it in the UCP, Board Styles. Not anymore, it's default now.

So happy it's that way though, I prefer myself the black classic void due to functionality issues.

I swapped the styles with each other so previous users of the "Fancy" style will have to revert to the default, while those who prefer the simple layout should switch to "unrealsp2 Basic" in their User Control Panel. Now it should be fine for everyone! \o/

Nice work. Would still be nice if the overlay of images could be fixed so that the background doesn't bleed through screenshots, though.

EDIT: Err, I've clearly not been paying attention. The problem still occurs here, though. (IE8)

Cool, the fancy style seems to slow down less now. Not as fast as the basic one but much more usable than before.

IE8 does not support the RGBA function (allowing for alpha transparency in background colours) in the CSS3 standard, meaning I have to either use the old method (which causes the problems you mentioned) or entirely disable translucency for IE8, falling back to solid colours. It's up to you, really!

The IE9 platform preview seems to be capable of processing RGBA, though, just FYI.

I guess it's not that pronounced a problem.

Y'all Internet Explorer users gotta tell me what you prefer for the fancy style, though. :P Solid backgrounds or shiny translucency which, however, shines through images and text a bit?

I suppose the background makes more sense if you can see it through the posts as well.

translucency FTW.. but maybe you can set up something as background for images. So that the background behind the image itself would be solid black for example.
