We've updated our style: now with more fluiditudiny!

Hey gang, just your friendly neighborhood transmitter mascot here again with another exciting announcement about the RCGroups Beautification project!

We've just uploaded some changes to the beta style we toyed with earlier this week. Thanks to everyone who contributed feedback. Some of you just hate hate hated it because it was a fixed width style, so we're trying some new things this time.

Here is what we've changed:
  • Added a notification/style switcher under the main menu for all styles
  • Increased contrast between all text and background colors
  • Fixed bug that was causing horizontal scroll bar to appear prematurely when sizing the window down
  • Added a minimum and maximum width to the content area instead of a fixed 1000px width
  • Added a full fluid style
  • Various small fixes

The new style is something we're calling "adaptive width" because it will let you resize it up to a certain point. Give it a shot and if you don't like it try the fully fluid width. Note that unless you have a widescreen monitor you won't see the difference between the two.

After our last test ended with some negative feedback, Jim Bourke posted some thoughts to explain why we wanted to try a fixed width style, for those still curious.
