  Errors with the new Physics Oversnow : ) Theme

+ 2 like - 0 dislike

Naturally, when the new theme is being made by PolarKernel, there will be a few bugs. I have noticed some already, and we should use this thread to collaqte the bugs in a more systematic way. 

I don't want to mix this thread with the older Bugs thread, this thread is for errors/bugs exclusively for the new PhysicsOversnow : ) theme.

The "suggested edit" button is not appearing on answers, even though the VTC/VTrO/SuggestedEdit buttons are appearing on all the questions.

Should be fixed.

@polarkernel It is fixed however, there is still a bug; the "vote to close" button appears for answers too, while it should appear only for questions.   


@polarkernel Thanks!

Just after the VTC/VTrO/SuggestedEdit buttons were added to the questions' actions bar, the links disappeared from the navigation bar. I suppose this was intentional, but I don't think it is a good idea, since the links in the navigation bar are mostly supposed to be for those intending to review votes to close/reopen and suggested edits, or act on any post in general, whereas the links at the bottom of the questions and answers are supposed to mostly be fore those wanting to act on that particular post.

The upvote count is too light, and I fear that to some, it may not be distinguishable from the surrounding box anymore. The colour should be changed to #008000.

 The background is white, instead of light grey. This is because the existing background-colour disappeared, somehow.

I noticed that PolarKernel fixed this a while before I posted this answer, so immediately added the "[SOLVED]" before posting it : )
