Forum Profile Options?

Post by serleran »

Would it be possible to include some sort of visual profile/theme for the boards? While I do not come here nearly as much as I used to, there is often a disconnect between my eyes and threads with posts as they are nearly, to me, the same color... I could try a dark theme for my browser but that would impact every site when it is this one that is really the one that needs it.

Good question, and one that had been on my mind since taking over here.

I will look into the possibility of adding a second option for the theme. I know in myBB (my usual choice for forum platform) I can do it easily, I've not yet looked into it for phpBB, but will do.

It involves uploading the style then doing the install -> active from the ACP -> Customize. But it's not that complicated, hardest part if choosing style.

Go here

Prosilver Dark Edition might be the easiest to add since it will inherit from the Prosilver settings.

Okay, you can now go to the User Control Panel and the Board Preferences to set the theme to Prosilver dark.

Awesome, thank you. It has made a tremendous difference and I can see the forums much easier now.
