New Forums Theme!

New Forums Theme!

Postby Maihem » Thu Apr 30, 2009 2:00 pm

For those who hadn't noticed yet, our forums have had a new theme implemented! It's called 'polyethylene' and has been set as the board's default theme. Featuring a black background and a fancy header image, it fits the main website way better than the 'prosilver' and 'subsilver2' themes that come with phpBB3 by default. Since it also sets a width of ~800px for the main column, it decreases the average line length, thus making for easier reading (imho).

We have stated several times that we didn't have the time to look at theming the forums. Where does this skin come from, then? A big 'Thank You!' for this goes out to one of our users:

Jabica
<Honor and Arms>
US-Stormrage

for cooking up the theme and letting us use it for the forums! \o/

You probably should force the new theme onto existing users. Just a thought =)

Nice Theme.

Can I suggest a link back to the main site?

Just a heads up. If you dont log into the forum, you still see the default forum color (Blue/white) with the phpBB logo.

Yep, we switched back the default theme. Some phpBB update was majorly backward incompatible so that registration, voting and some more things no longer work with the polyethylene theme.
