[Suggestion] Link colors and forum themes

Postby Keiko1981 » Tue May 06, 2014 12:53 pm

It would be very much appreciated if the links of the new forum had a different color between visited and unvisited links. As it is now it isn't easy to see which ones you're clicked.

Another suggestion, if the forum will support "themes." Make one light, and one dark theme.

I suggest the Avalon Blue theme: http://www.phpbb3styles.net/db/style/Avalon+Blue (a demo is available).

I suggest Artodia Phantom http://www.artodia.com/phpbb-styles/phantom/ I use this for a forum at work. The standard phpBB3 is not barrier free for people who are colorblind. It has different colored icons on the left for visited links

but they are hard to see if you do not zoom in. I cannot say how easy it is for people who do not have a color vision deficiency, but it is hard for me...

thanks for the suggestions.

but unfortunately we are using phpBB 3.1 and all suggestions were for phpBB 3.0 only
there are still no style packs available for phpBB 3.1

also the number of extensions and tools for phpBB 3.1 is very very small... compared to the well supported phpBB 3.0 :-(

probably naive and missing the point, but couldn't we just change the links.css (styles/prosilver/theme/links.css)?
appending at the end:

Code: Select all

/* da-mod for visited in-post-links  */
a.postlink:visited {
   text-decoration: none;
        color: green;   /* change to something sensible */
}



or creating "styles/prosilver/theme/da_links.css" and expanding "styles/prosilver/theme/stylesheet.css"

Code: Select all

/* da-mod for visited in-post-links  */
a.postlink:visited {
   text-decoration: none;
        color: green;   /* change to something sensible */
}

append to styles/prosilver/theme/stylesheet.css

Code: Select all

/* da-mod for visited in-post-links  */
@import url("da_links.css");


if more changes are to be made it would be a good idea to clone the default style and make the changes there
only my 2 ct, the admin/mods have a lot more experience in running this forum

added a new forum style

Postby MoerkJ » Thu Jan 15, 2015 6:11 am

testing a new board style "SE Square Left"

changes:
- in topic view the profiles are on the left again... like in the old forum
- no more round edges/corners
- sticky topics better recognizable, imho
- different colour (darker blue)

you can select your style in your user control panel under "board preferences".

Thanks! I like the new one better. Not only does it look better, but the profiles on the left is what I am used to. :thumright:

I'm loving the new theme too. (but I think I'd love just about anything over the default ;-)

The new addition of the box at the top was a pleasant surprise too, hah ^^

I only realized it now (the forum header) but it's nice to see someone thought about valentines day :-)

I noticed a couple of hours ago that the avatars changed from being located at the left side, to now now being on the right. Is it because a recent update of the forum?

Earlier I changed under "Control panel" -> "Board preferences" so that avatars was located on the left side. It looks like it isn't possible to do it anymore (or I have missed where to change it). Could we add back the possibility to choose on what side avatars should be displayed?

Blame Ruroshin for playing around with the forum settings. Think https was the reason for the issue to mess around with it in the first place, as the certificate wasn't updated anyway.

changed the forum style back from the standard "prosilver" style to the "SE Square Left" style.

after all "SE Square Left" is an official prosilver extension provided by phpBB Limited. And since "SE Square Left" inherits from prosilver, nothing should break when using it. In case some changes will be made to prosilver, it should work with "SE Square Left" as well.

Thanks MoerkJ,
but now in the top box where used to be three columns [new|most|latest] I see only 'latest' and shifted to the left the right 2/3rd is empty. And in the thread/post view the poster-info is tiny at the top of the post and not at the left.
is this a different style compared to before the recent changes?

I am in agreement. Plus, adding themes to phpbb is quite easy.
