Re-style for files.minecraftforge.net
« on: October 28, 2012, 07:51:47 AM »
I've been working on a new style for the files.minecraftforge.net website since Jenkins is going down and the current files page is pretty freakin ugly. This makes it more "newbie-friendly" so that new modders (who were probably redirected there by MCP) don't get intimidated. OvermindDL1 and I are going to work on getting this up fairly quickly and making it the best possible experience for the users. Here's an interactive demo: http://www.briman0094.com/forgedemo

i recommend for making it more user friendly to add the minecraft version that every forge version is for there have been several confusions about that if you just look in the
minecraftforums

edit: or i forgot to say it looks really good

Thanks! You can tell what version of Minecraft it's for by looking at the version number: 4.0 is for 1.3, 5.0 is for 1.4, and 6.0 is for 1.4.2. If I get access to their buildscript I can put in a tooltip or something that specifies exactly what MC version it's for.

I updated the live demo. The buttons look WAY better and the <hr/> tag looks better too. There're also changelog buttons but they don't do anything yet.
