Kickstarter Coming Soon

Things may have seemed a bit slow around here lately, but we’re busy behind the scenes getting things ready for some big changes coming in the summer. We’ve got a lot of ideas and we just need the resources to do the work, so we are going to be running a Kickstarter!

We will be releasing more details soon, but the basic plan is to take the awesome core that is Obsidian Portal and reskin and reshape it to be a much friendlier and sexier modern website. I know that redesign can be a scary word to a lot of people, but trust us that we want Obsidian Portal to not just look better but also work better.

Stay tuned for more details, and the actual campaign should be launching within a few weeks!

Custom CSS for Your Campaign

Tonight we deployed a new feature for Ascendant campaigns, the ability to add custom CSS rules that are applied campaign-wide. In addition, we did an overhaul of much of the HTML on the site to make theming much easier. We’ve added divs, standardized some naming, and generally cleaned things up.

However! This means that if you’ve extensively styled and themed your campaign already, you may have some issues and pages may not look exactly right. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we wanted to make sure that anyone embarking on creating a theme for their campaign would start off on the right foot. Some of the old markup was not as clean as it should have been and we decided now was the best time to fix it.
