Dreamcast-Talk 3.0 New Website Info

Post#1 » Wed Jul 08, 2015 9:15 pm

Update:

Welcome to the new Dreamcast Talk website! I'm calling the new design "Blue Burst" as it was inspired by PSO and the PAL Dreamcast aesthetic. The talented: BWT designed our new logo and background.

I'm very glad to see all the positive feedback regarding the looks and function of the site. Thank you guys, i'm glad you like it!

Now that the website has been live for about a week and mostly finished I'd like to give an overview of the new features.

  1. Responsive web design that looks great on any device be it phone, tablet, or PC. (still have not tested Dreamcast functionality)
  2. phpbb 3.1 Update (includes some neat things like notifications, see upper right menu)
  3. Chat moved to the top of the index page (chat may be upgraded in the future to include more features) index.php
  4. Recent topics function added to index page
  5. News Portal (includes articles and a calendar/clock which may be used for scheduling events in the future) app.php/portal
  6. Similar topics are now displayed at the end of every topic page
  7. New navigation bar that sticks to the top of the page.
  8. Topic preview (hover your mouse over a topic title and it will show the first post in a pop up)
  9. Coming soon - a mobile phone app that will send notifications from the chat to your device. This will be useful for organizing and communicating for online game meets

I understand the text and colors may be hard on the eyes of some and I plan on implementing a "lite style" that you may switch to if you wish. The board style can be changed on this page: ucp.php?i=165

One more thing that is long overdue is my comprehensive online setup guide for the Dreamcast. This will help consolidate all the sticky topics on the online section. This will also be featured on the website to help new users get the info they need.

Thanks for reading and look out for more cool things soon :)
