New forum themes
« on: May 18, 2009, 03:44:26 PM »
In addition to the blue/light Simple Machines theme, we now have three custom themes for your use:

Black Clouds theme:



I know a lot of you have been using this one since we made it available after the recent crash.  But, for those who prefer a lighter theme...

Silver Linings theme:



Just a different color scheme to the Black Clouds theme.  The look and functionality are otherwise the same.

DTF Light:



This is a custom theme that I like a lot.  Some of the features are a bit different than the other two custom themes (both of which are based on Black Rain).  The only real drawback is that it has a set screen width, so it may look too narrow to those who have widescreen monitors.  Also, it doesn't have the thread hover/preview feature.

Enjoy.

Hmm, I'm seeing one big blank box and two that say "This image or video has been moved or deleted".

Edit: What the?  Now the second and third ones show up.

Edit (2): Okay, now you're just messing with me.  All three are visible.

Sorry.  I had to redo the screen shots.  The ones I had had some private information.

I figured it was something like that.  But the opportunity to give an admin shit doesn't happen every day, and I had to take advantage.

I would have been disappointed in you if you didn't.

I had been using the Simple Machines theme, but it is amazing how different this one looks to my eyes.

I like the last (light 2) theme quite a bit but I still really miss the thread hovering previews.

I like that theme as well, and the lack of previews is OK with me.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

ok, I've decided I'm sticking with the default SMF white. Great to have more, but I find all of them a bit confusing with the way they show quotes and the layouts. But thanks for adding more :tup

Darker themes are nicer to me, they are easier to read. But this Black Clouds theme... I'm on another forum that looks like a bumblebee, all black and yellow, it looks terrible. This one is smoother and nicer than that, but still... horrible bumblebee colours.

Sorry admins, I shall not complain, I shall stick to the Light theme and curse bumblebees in silence.

Edit: No. I shall stick to the bumblebee theme to save my eyes. But still curse it in silence...

Yet another new theme loaded now.  I won't bother posting a screenshot because it is the default theme, and I know you all can see it now.  This is easily my favorite theme.  Hope you all like it.  All the other ones are still available if you choose to use them.

I don't know what happened, but that must have reset other people's theme settings, because it just changed my theme to the black one, so I had to change it back. No prob though.

I switched back to the Black Clouds dark theme.

the moons one was just too much black and grey. I liked the orange/yellow/whatever that kinda balanced it

If say a user were to make a good one that fit the site, could dtf use it then?
