Changes
  • Optimized a background image (welcome notices) that shipped in the folder with all styles saving a ton of space! Took XenBase archive from 1.2 megs down to 140kb!
  • Changed child div's of the H2 for forum categories into spans for valid HTML
  • Prefix + user banner CSS formatting to avoid LESS compilation issues
  • Adjusted editor styling to inherit more from the style properties and not rely on our CSS
  • Changed CTA to use a contrasted color from the background rather than relying on the normal button color
Style specific changes
  • Bolt
    • Adjusted some of the colors around the style so they're not hard-coded
    • Optimized header image to reduce the archive size

    • Sidebar icons are no longer floating to the right. You can add this to your extra.less if you want the float to come back:

      .p-body-sidebar .block .block-minorHeader:before, .p-body-sideNavContent .block .block-minorHeader:before
  • Omni
    • Removed a large unused image from the style folder to reduce the archive size

This may not be exciting to some but I like stuff like this :). I usually optimize any images that get uploaded but the welcome images I added a few updates ago were not.

The very far right column is the file size for the 2.2.6 style archives, 2.2.5 can be found just to the left of it.
