Forum themes

Postby Viking » Mon Aug 25, 2014 5:20 pm

I didn't know where else to put this topic, so it ended up here. Please feel free to move it if it belongs in another forum. :)

About forum themes - I was wondering if we could have a couple of more choices, especially a dark theme? This one is nice, I think: http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/SE+Gamer+Dark

I see no problem in adding more prefab Theme-Options.
There is basically no limit to the available webspace.

However those will not be customized (Rogue-Style) further, as the default theme "might" be in the future.

If you want, I could make the top banner Rogue-style for you. I've done it before with this theme. Look here: http://sq42.net/cft/forum/index.php

It's a nice looking theme, I wouldn't mind if you and Elfwyn wanted to increase the customization options for our forum users. The current default theme is, basically, something I just chopped together when setting things up. Lot of directions it could have taken, but the benefit of PHPBB3 is that there are so many options that you can use together to create a different experience for anyone that wants it.

Ok, great! I'll use the available RSQ graphics here and on RSI to make a mockup of a new top banner and post it here, so you can take a look at it.

Ok, this is only a first draft. I must see how it works before I can finalize it. The banner file is taken from your home page background image. The font in the logo is Star Wars' font since I didn't know the name of your current font.

Comments and suggestions are welcome!


PS: I see that the SE Gamer Dark theme is installed in the forums, but it's not enabled yet. You probably have to update theme & imageset in the phpBB3 Admin panel for this theme before I can select it in the User Control Panel -> Board preferences.


Edit: This is how it looks with the new banner background:

... and with the default background:

Also check that "Override user style" is set to "No" in Board Preferences.
