Coexistence Alpha for Neutral Good (Alpha as in alpha test release)

Title: Coexistence Alpha (implemented as a CSS overlay for Neutral Good )
Credit to: [personal profile] timeasmymeasure (sourced original theme) and [personal profile] solarbird
Base style: Neutral Good
Type: Mobile-aware responsive theme, in alpha test.
Best resolution: Any.
Tested in: Mobile Safari, Safari (desktop), Firefox on MacOS/OS X.
Features: Fully responsive/mobile-aware theme in alpha test, intended to be the basis for a simple and clear base theme for new users. Intended to be applied to reading pages, other journals (view in your style), and so on. Avoids horizontal scrolling in as many cases as possible through compaction and rescaling of objects. Avoids iOS autozoom in comment forms. Addresses deep nesting in comment chains on mobile, and additional replies made by the reader therein. Intended to be aware of and respect user customisation, including user-chosen colours.

Navbar 2.0 is a cosmetic redressing of the Navbar for more modern appearance and some improvements in behaviour.

This is an alpha test release consisting of a CSS-based overlay on top of Neutral Good, and I'm looking for people willing to use and test this. I hope that's okay. This release includes Navbar 2.0, an improved version of the navbar. If you're not using navbar now, it won't show up, but maybe consider turning it on.

Installation details in this post on my actual journal, please leave comments/bug reports there. (Mostly you just change your theme to Neutral Good, download the CSS linked at that post, and paste it into your "custom CSS" panel.)

I haven't tested it on mobile yet; I'll do it and post results.

Here you go: my screen is tiny and I can't really make the pages smaller, but here is what I have.





The 0.81 alpha is working better for me because I have the icon on the right currently.

Ok, I will give the newest update a go when I get home from work.

I tried it and the newest one after that, and it's great, except I'm like "When will my divider bar between the title/date and the body of the entry return from war?" Or was that part of the problem with icon handling? (Edit to add: your work is really awesome and I do appreciate it, it's just that the 4/27 version is actually working the best for my current phone.)

The bar is a casualty of handling left/right icon positioning well. :/

I figured. There are always tradeoffs for stuff like this. But it's great every other way!

You can put it back pretty easily. If you don't mind the user icon overlapping the line, there are just two lines to delete.

I have now commented those lines in the latest build. Look for the word DIVIDER in all caps. They're in comments and there are two instances. Deleting those two lines should restore dividers. (I haven't tried it yet because reasons but it should work.)

Thanks! I am leaving it the way it is for right now; I may take some more screencaps tomorrow.

Is there any way to put a space between the comments of the latest entry and the title of the previous entry, or is that something I can choose in preferences for the style?

I thought that was a preferences option, but it seems it only allows left and right margins in the UI.

There is a space there, but with your colour choices it's invisible - with default colours (and my preference-set colours) it serves as a ... 5px line, roughly? (That's by eye, not checking the code) delineating the two entries. But in your case, the comment count and reply linke are wrapping, which I don't think I've seen anywhere else... which means that those two links are actually sitting over the divider line (or in your case, space) taking it up.

Okay, I can reproduce this. This is a bug. Lemmie see if I can fix that.

Okay, I've got a fix. Grab the newest version (0.822) and see if that fixes it for you as well.

Thanks! I will try it when I get home and let you know what happens!

Version 0.813 update, particularly important if you set user icon position to left.
