    Hi everyone,

    I hope you're having a good Friday and have some nice plans for the weekend?

    Just to give you all an advance warning that next week we are making a small change to the green bar at the top of the site. The one that follows you down the screen as you scroll and contains all of the user and notification menus.

    The main change is the colour, changing to blue to better represent The Student Room's main colours. Some of the buttons will change a little bit but it's all largely just small tweaks to the look of them. The search box will be bigger.

    This is another step in preparing TSR for a number of big projects coming up over the next six months.

    One of the first will be an improved on site search coming in the next month or two. If you're interested in testing this, keep an eye on this forum for a call for testers in February

    I have attached a few designs of the new look header to show you what it looks like.

    See you soon!

    Jack

    Also it seems the images links at the beginning of your post is broken.

    Not just yet but there is another couple of projects looking at the side and the main forum and thread page layouts coming up.

    Funnily enough, the side was once blue, but when we tested it, the green side improved the number of people clicking the links and using the site more. People found the different colours helped to subconsciously divide the page up and make it easier to read.

    Something similar was on before, but people actually loved it!

    We had to remove it as it didn't perform as well but we do want to bring it back. This isn't exactly the same, the colouring is similar.

    See if you can get rid of the orange by going on holiday again. Win-win!

    If it gets rid of the orange, you can go anywhere you like. I am nostalgic for the old days of the skins you could put on TSR, and I used to use a green and dark red one. It was really nice.

    Why'd they get rid of all these options?

    Every time you make a change, you need to test it across several different options, browsers and all that. Much easier to have one skin to maintain.

    Yes! I was just to post about the fact that you could change the colour scheme.

    I really have no idea. Way too techy a question for me.
