Better than the white on white of a few days ago that was hard on the eyes.

The old skin had a "wrapper" on the forum post area which allowed me to color that and make it transparent. Now, 4.2.x series no longer has that "wrapper" so I color the same as it was previously which made the white on white. So now after hunting down the selector I made the post boxes that light blue but it's causing a zebra effect in another area which I'll chase down later.

i like the zebra effect on the foru listing.  It is easy to see each topic.

This just me personal preference but Instead of tire tracks I'd like to see diesel dog tracks along with bear moose and Elk tracks:thumb1: 

 

I know that would be impossible though

I see you found the M's. I missed them. Had faith they would return.

I had to download the vector art, edit them a bit in inkscape. Then I had to upload my artwork to IcoMoon to create a font. Now take the font file upload it to the server. Now write the custom code to inject the M's in place of the message icons. Only a 2 hour project for that little M... :doh:

 

@font-face {
  font-family: 'mopar';
  src:  url('/fonts/mopar.eot?d9k5jq');
  src:  url('/fonts/mopar.eot?d9k5jq#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
    url('/fonts/mopar.ttf?d9k5jq') format('truetype'),
    url('/fonts/mopar.woff?d9k5jq') format('woff'),
    url('/fonts/mopar.svg?d9k5jq#icomoon') format('svg');
  font-weight: normal;
  font-style: normal;
}

[class^="icon-"], [class*=" icon-"] {
  /* use !important to prevent issues with browser extensions that change fonts */
  font-family: 'mopar' !important;
  speak: none;
  font-style: normal;
  font-weight: normal;
  font-variant: normal;
  text-transform: none;
  line-height: 1;

  /* Better Font Rendering =========== */
  -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
  -moz-osx-font-smoothing: grayscale;
}

.icon-mopar:before {
  content: "\e900";
}

 

Not to mention I brought back the transparent background and got it working. That was simple. Just inject the...

 

#ipsLayout_mainArea {
  background-color: rgba(204,223,255,0.75);
  padding: 10px;
  border-radius: 10px;
}

 

The alpha is the transparent amount. But that 75% opacity.

Sounds like a lot of work, but I always liked the M's. Thanks for all the work you do with this place.

Heck... My day has been crazy... Got to Riggins, ID with my A/C stuff. I managed to sell a full case of 12 can of freon all the jobs I did today in Riggins. Now After finishing my last job at 6:30 pm. I ate dinner in front of the computer and proceeded to finish style scripts and getting the final touches here. So, from 6:30 pm MDT to now at 9:16 pm MDT I've been coding... 

 

Now here shortly I'll move to my bedroom and bench test on the laptop and mobile phone for style changes or problems. Then hit the sack so I can do my 12 hour tour to Ontario, OR for @MoparMom dialysis. I'll continue cranking out code while I'm down there in a coffee shop.
