Forum theme question
« on: 26 January 2011, 14:45:08 »
Just wanted to know what the ETA is for when the "classic" forum theme will become available, or if there is an ETA at all?

Currently, of the three themes that are available, none seem to be even close to the "classic".

A total warfare theme should arrive sometime this weekend -- the alternative themes based on that should arrive during the following week.

No guarantees on that timetable though -- SMF 2 skins are different from SMF 1, and I also have to be careful not to cripple any of the new functionality since I'm not just throwing CSS at it, I'm also revising the underlying HTML and PHP to be faster and use less bandwidth.

Ah yes.

"Total Warfare theme" was the term I was looking for.

Themes? Holy cow, I've been here a few years and don't think I knew we even HAD themes before! Did we have themes before?

Is there a Clan theme?  That would be really awesome.

If not, I can roll with the normal one.

I notice SMF 2 has moved to a fixed height for code blocks, any chance we can be rid of that? Or are we stuck with it...
