Important question: what should be the default forum skin?

Post #1 by admin » Sat Sep 22, 2012 3:27 am

I have put vphpbb3 as the default skin for nostalgia reasons (familiarity with MTGS scheme). However this scheme is 3.05 only (phpbb3 is at 3.0.10 as of now) and doesn't make the forum software justice.

silverlight2 or even the other (prolight) are much better. Should we skew familiarity in favor of better looks?

Putting the two dark skins GR suggested is in the todo list. This will come soon. Feel free to also suggest other skins (see in http://phpbb3styles.net)

Also we could seet up a banner now, it would improve dramatically the looks of the site.

GR, up to the task? bear in mind that each of the three skins has different rectangle dimensions.

Sure. I take it no Samurai Angels 'n stuff... Text in a cool background? Some art and stuff? I remember WotC releasing some packs of images and stuff for fan-run websites, let me find it again, see if we want to use some of that.

I've looked already into it, I'll have to make code changes, and mod installs.

Another idea could be to do some screen captures of this forum with the different skins, once we have a skeleton forum structure set up, with indications on how to change the skin. It would be very invaluable.

I'm gonna wait a while, but otherwise it seems the subsilver2 skin is likely to be set up as the default one. I agree with this change.

Prosilver is what the furoticon forums use.

I'm fine with it or subsilver.

I'm liking aeroblue a lot... :nod:

The avatar, etc. box/column should be smaller, though. As in narrower.

I just got this error while reading this thread.
http://imgur.com/CebKc

I don't read phpBB-ese (and don't feel like learning) so hopefully you folk can figure it out.

EDIT: similar errors are popping up on other threads I opened (and these errors on this page as I edit:

[phpBB Debug] PHP Warning: in file [ROOT]/includes/functions_content.php on line 684: Missing argument 2 for censor_text(), called in [ROOT]/includes/functions_content.php on line 421 and defined
[phpBB Debug] PHP Warning: in file [ROOT]/includes/functions_content.php on line 684: Missing argument 2 for censor_text(), called in [ROOT]/includes/functions_content.php on line 421 and defined
[phpBB Debug] PHP Warning: in file [ROOT]/includes/functions_content.php on line 684: Missing argument 2 for censor_text(), called in [ROOT]/posting.php
on line 1431 and defined


EDIT2: Also the font color in spoilers on this dark skin makes it near unreadable.

Scumbag is adding cool features. That's what the errors are about. The spoiler color is a skin thing, IDK where to fix that. Let me check if I can do it at all...

I have updated the prosilver template so that the usernames go left as we are used to, so you guys might want to give a second chance to this skin. Same with prosilver_se

After giving it some thought, I've made prosilver the default forum skin. Now that the avatars are back on left, I think it makes a good visit card for the forums.

Also bear in mind that we can change the styles colors very easily in case you have suggestions for better aestethics.

Silverlight2 if the body background color can be changed to a light gray (#d3d3d3 or so). That makes it much less jarring.
