Hi everyone! This is just an update to let you know there has been a lot of work put into this new layout. It will be a complete overhaul of the site design. We will be switching to a two columns theme for the home page and making the activity stream front and center. Oh don't forget this will be a new and improved activity stream! :]

 

  • Members can post a Status from the Main Page.
  • Activity Items have a new, cleaner UI that makes it easier for members to interact with content in the feed.
  • Videos are playable inline, and photo thumbnails are larger.
  • When you click "Continue" on a blog post, the post expands inline.

 

In the meantime, we're also working on these additional features:
  • Ability to like & comment inline on the Activity Feed
  • Ability to like & comment on statuses.

 

With this new theme update also comes changes to your current profile theme. We are rolling out an easier to use theme editor for you, but in order to do that your current theme will automatically be changed to the new default theme. The coolest part is that it is a real time theme editor for your profile page. Once you change a setting you see it real time. It is always fun to update your profile page right? So in short if you have a background or color scheme that you absolutely love on your profile page make sure to save them on your computer.

 

There will also be a site e-announcement about the new design.

 

If all goes well, I might make a quick vid showcasing it and post it to this post so stay tuned!

 

Thanks for all of your generous support and dedication in making what TA is today!

Just a small update. The major CSS is done! :] I hope to put the site into full production some time next week!
Here is a update:

This is what a blog post looks like:

Here is what a video post looks like:

Here is the new home page of TA:

Keep in mind this is not the final version of the home page because some elements I would like to add do not function in the test environment. One last thing to note. The ability to post content will be added above the activity stream:

What a picture upload looks like:

What your profile page will look like (default themed) yes you will be able to redesign your profile theme.

How do I save my current theme?
will we be able to customize the widths of the columns? the left column seems much wider than it needs to be :(
The left col seems little big at first but once this is in full production it will make the site a lot less cramped.
But I can play around with the the widths a little more. :]
Looks a lot less cluttered. Kudos.
