Styles

Unread postby ~Z~ » Tue Aug 16, 2005 2:09 pm

I'm thinking of changing around the style of the message board, just to use different colors and possibly moving some of the text around. Right now, you can choose from different styles, with one called "subsilver" being default, which is what we currently use. I'll have the new styles uploaded tonight, give them a look if you want to use any others. The one i'm looking at looks like this:

http://www.phpbb.com/styles/forum/index.php?style=117

This isn't my forum, but it would look like this. Any suggestions?
you can follow this link: http://www.phpbb.com/styles/demo.php
and use the drop down menu to pick a different theme if any of those look good. if you see one, let me know and i can import that. everyone can even have their own theme if they want.

I think changing things around is cool, but I don't like the black one, It loses all orginzation I think. It dosen't look as neat as the current set up.

How about SubBlack?? That looks really cool.
Swiftblue is a good one too.
If I had to choose, I would choose Swiftblue. My dad likes that one too.

and i see you originally said to not move a thing, yet, swift blue would slightly move them. you can even change the style on your own too. i can install any of those themes you want, and you can change back and forth. I really need to change the images at the top, then work on styles. I'll look into those two you mentioned gregg, they look decent.

That was before I realized I could switch the colors around.

Styles are updated. The "sub silver" as default has been removed. The two choices for now are DarkEQ, which is now the default, and "Green Glass" which is the green themed style. Feel free to choose which one you would like by clicking on profile at the top and changing "board style". I may add one more later, but we'll stick with these two for now. Thanks for the input all!

This is kind of freaky In My Opinion. I really wish you would have kept the Subsilver as an option.

it you do not like the dark eq then switch to the greenglass. It is closer to the subsilver format. otherwise I'm not sure what to tell you Geep

I had to remove subsilver for now to change the style for those who were using subsilver as default. It is now readded as a choice.
