Distinguish the official forum from Adriel's forum

Post by Makfly » 04 Mar 2010 15:46

I just went through the User Control Panel, to try and find an option to change the look of the forum, but with no luck.

I think it would be nice if the looks could be changed a bit, so that it doesn't look like a copy of the old forum Adriel put up, and perhaps even customized to look more Genesis/Fantasy-like. I don't mean over-plaster it with cheesy graphics, but the top-bar could perhaps be changed...Just something to make it stand out and not look like an (almost) identical copy of Adriels forum.

If I just failed to spot the option to choose a different look for the forum in the Control Panel, please let me know.

Hey Makfly, this is a GREAT suggestion! The theme/style that you see is the standard phpBB style that is installed by default. And to be honest, I agree that the default is a bit drab and boring.

So, this is a great opportunity for everyone to give input on what the community would like for the new style. Here's a phpbb styles site where you can browse through lots of screenshots :)

Let the games begin! :)

I think it should look similar to the homepage design in colors. Feels more connected.

http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/Getaway+Green

or

http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/Serenity+Green

Are the ones I think fit best, and they are pretty calm and nice to rest your eyes on, easy to read. Add our little top-banner from the homepage as forum logo if possible?

Sort of like these ones too:

I'll put up a poll if I can figure out how.

Ideally we'd get a custom genesis skin, similar to the website ;)
