Some of our early forum members and users in other boards have suggested already the following:

  • User Taiphoz suggested a nice looking and organised examples and showcase (done)
  • User therevills suggested a different color scheme of the main logo
  • Some suggested on Discord to integrate Visual Studio Code into Cerberus X
  • User Muruba suggested to integrate Interstitial (fullscreen) admob ads (done)
  • User Muruba suggested to get a way of retrieving the locale/language of a user device
  • User GW suggested to build a Monogame target to cover UWP and XBoxOne
Personally I would love to see syntax highlighting in the forum of Cerberus X source code and Monkey X source code as well. (done)

Congrats! I am a daily visitor of this website now :)

Here some random thoughts and suggestions:
- I would prefer the small font of the website to be 13px (at least 12px) instead of 11px for easier reading. The same goes for the menu fonts: I think they can go up to 18px
- Please make a separate Menu for the documentation, because I think nobody will intuitively look into the forum to look for the docs.
- I would make real Wordpress pages out of the new HowTo posts for each one, accessible through a submenu of the docs menu mentioned above.

What do you think about this?

Thanks for your suggestion. Like this?

Next week I will look into the font size and see how we like it.
About the docs, nothing is decided atm.

I would prefer it to be placed in the main menu next to Forums.

From my point of view the main menu should contain the things potentially new users are interested in, like:
- Overview - about what it is, why you should use it and for whom it is with all the benefis. the current Home is a good starting point for that.
- Showcase - of what has and can be done with it in a reprentative and sparkling manner ;-)
- Get started - with howto pages on the first steps of downloading, installation and a little project

... and the things current users are using frequently like:
- Documentation
- Comunity

and maybe one or two items to show that there are real peoble at like your member section or a about us page with some information about who you are and why you are doing this.

Which elements did you change? I was thinking about the smallest font being 12px which is still 11px as far as I can see.
I know this ist just just a subjective thing and it may collide with some design decisions. ;-)
Would be interesting to hear what others are thinking about that.

Thank you for your very good suggestions. Pages that explain Cerberus are still in the works. The menu is not done. At the heart, this is a forum software, with some extra functionality added to it. I will see what we can do to enhance the user experience.

Mainly the content text of the frontpage, the text of forum posts, the navbar and menu text. All just in the dark theme for now.
Of course, fonts to big will screw up the display, so I would not want to make big changes.

Would you like it to be bigger because you have visual problems? Doesn't the zoom factor of your browser help? I am just wondering as for an example, the fonts in the old forums have the same size.

Now I see. You are talking a bout the font of the post. It's 10.6pt not px.
I was talking about the font for "Likes Received" or the preview of the post title in the category list.

With mojo2, you have the DrawIndexedPrimitives commands which you can use for this. Adn other draw commands as well.

https://www.cerberus-x.com/communit....graphics_DrawList.html#DrawIndexedPrimitives

In mojo1, you can use the DrawPoly command. And others as well.

Hope that helps you.
