In need of a user friendly Arduino forum?
Why not try my new modification system and instantly transform the forum It can make elements easier on the eye,add missing features, and not to mention significantly reduce the amount of scrolling.
Just to mention a few...
- Syntax highlighting (and resizeable code boxes).
- Reduction in the size of page elements.
- De-cluttering of thread posts.
- Bookmark favourite links.
- Request new features.
- Stylized quotes.
If like me, you are an Arduino nut spending heaps of time browsing and contributing to the forums, then this tool may be just what you're looking for. With the recent upgrades to the forum, some features we were used to have changed dramatically or disappeared altogether This project will hopefully rectify a lot of these problems, however its destined to be more than just a fix.
The main motivation behind this project is the need for a touch-screen friendly design. Mainly to allow my tablet to navigate the forums easier, but when using my PC, I want to optimize the screen usage I'm planning a method of implementing themes so users can create their own designs with different fonts/colours/modifications Then cool features like themes for people with vision/motor impairments can be easily implemented.
Once modifications and new features have had the chance to be tested on a multitude of different browsers, this project could be used to vote and pitch updates to the forum administrators. This project could also be open for testing certain new features that the Arduino administrators have developed and tested in their development I'm completely open to new improvements and features. You can either use GitHub or post a message in the Arduino.cc forum discussion thread to get your ideas implemented!
