[Theme] Separation

I have no idea why I'm calling it that :P  Another experiment to understand how difficult, or not, it is to update the message index and topic page.  Overall not to bad, mostly limited by my clumsy css :P

This is a light theme with a nav style menu layout where the first drop down is done horizontally, like was done with the borderworld theme.  Its just a superfish variation but has a more compact feeling.

The message index was rearranged to have a larger avatar first and the topic page navigation / last post was consolidated to a single area.  The topic icon is also in line with the subject, and a few other tweaks.

The topic display has an updated poster area where certain items that were normally hidden in the drop down have been exposed.

Also has a slider quick login bar and a expanding search menu to snaz things up a bit.

Couple of shots below, demo / download links on the theme site ;)

Is looking better now but I think it can be improved... Imo the username, avatar and icons are taking too much space. I attach a screenshot made with my Nexus 5 and chrome browser

No surprise there are issues in the responsive area since I did not look at that at all ... I'll try to take a look later.

ETA: made a few tweaks to help, I'm sure it needs more in the responsive area !

Thank you!

Edit #1: Hmmm. I installed this theme, set it as the default but it doesn't happen. The default theme is still the er... default theme and Seperation isn't showing up. It's as though no theme has been installed - even though it's right there in my admin center.

Edit #2: I just installed another theme and that displays just fine.

For my forum I've chosen this theme, which doesn't contain the go top/go down buttons. But I would like to have these.
The index.css contains the same code-parts as the original ElkArte index.css. In the blue_index.css the following code part was missing, which is existing in the light_index.css. Therefore I added it blue_index.css.

Code: [Select]
/* Globally accessible top/bottom links. */
#gotop, #gobottom {
border: 1px solid #222;
border-bottom: none;
border-radius: 0 20px 0 0;
background: #eee;
color: #eee;
opacity: 0.2;
#gobottom {
border-top: none;
border-radius: 0 0 20px 0;
#gotop:hover, #gobottom:hover {
color: #444;
text-decoration: none;
opacity: 1;

But the buttons are still not visible. What is still missing? What do I have to do now?

I think Spuds removed the top/bottom buttons from this theme entirely...
You may have to edit index.template.php and add:
Code: [Select]
	<a href="#top" id="gotop" title="', $txt['go_up'], '">↑</a>
<a href="#bot" id="gobottom" title="', $txt['go_down'], '">↓</a>
Code: [Select]
	<a id="top" href="#skipnav">', $txt['skip_nav'], '</a>
