Topic: Observations/questions from new user, mainly on presentation
First of all, thanks for punBB to all people involved! :-)
I?m new to punBB, I?m trying the latest beta of 1.3, and I have a few observations/questions:
Default theme. One of the things I like most in version 1.2 is the default theme. I find the theme of 1.3 more lively -- that is not a bad thing! :-) -- but not as space-efficient.
Monospace font for the code tag. In the CSS the order is: 1. Andale, 2. Lucinda, 3. monospace. In my Windows machine I don?t have Andale, so Lucinda is used. Lucinda may be the best font for the Windows XP console, but I think it is not the best option for a browser. Why specify a monospace font at all? Users particular about their monospace fonts can define one in their browser.
Default set of BBCode. Would you please consider adding ordered and unordered lists to the default set? I think that a point of useability can be made for ol and ul and their BBCode implementations: they make lists, well, more readable, and easier to scan quickly. :-)
Variations of smilies converted to icons. Is there are a reason not all variations are converted? E.g.:
Spaces inserted to avoid parsing.
: ) and = ) but not :-)
: P but not :-P, , and :-p
Thanks for reading!
