new default colors

This forum can be a scary place, 'cause we got lax rules: let's see your war face. Take a breath, and roll the dice, you might find out we're really nice.

Oh i'm gonna get rid of various, once i filter them out, probably, there are some that did catch my interest immediately. The watermelon one, despite the silly preconception, CAN be made into a cool theme. But i want to see the suggestions of everybody before i pick a few. :D

Sometimes the best suggestions are unawarely made in jest.

Well, shit. And here I thought I'd be helping when I made a thread about making up a stylesheet.

There's a couple people who have volunteered to help with stylesheets. Three of you now, I think. Mir@k, Soulchild and you. Stuff also offered. Honestly, BR was looking for as much help as he could get, so don't worry.

Agreed.

Can we not go with the optional layouts option?

Yes, I agree with the option to choose skins. Other forums have been doing it for years, even CodeTwink. But that was vBulletin. Is it possible to do with phpBB?

There's supposed to be a drop down box to select a forum template in your user settings, but it doesn't appear in this version of phpBB.

That's what I thought. In the administration panel there's an option to force the default template for all users. Either I'm blind, or that setting is enabled and it preventing me from seeing an option to change my style.

Ya, sorry. When I go into the Administrative control panel and look at people's profiles go Board Preferences > Global Settings there's a drop down menu between "My Language" and "My Timezone" which says "My Board Style". I guess the option was just removed from being visible when the forum updated last time, since the got rid of the other board style you could choose, and made the option pointless
