It's not the same, you have to point to Search, then to My Posts / Active Topics. But this is not so important.

Most important for me now it's the font size.

BTW I see, some smilies have been changed, thanks. :wink:

Unfortunately, dark styles bring out many minor imperfections in images. However, most of those can be easily fixed.

As per the AvantGuard and Support Staff names, there really isn't much we can do about that unless we change their colors across all styles.

The rest of your suggestions will be taken into consideration.

I'm a bit busy :wink: but it looks good, maybe it's too dark, some parts might be perhaps more glossy, but probably it would be difficult to change it. Some avatars look too bright, not just mine, also your and DrDrrae's image in signature, but it's not a big problem.

The text is smaller than in default style, could be a bit larger, if possible. Text size in the quick reply field is OK

Forum rules field is grey, looks a bit annoying, red font color is bad readable.

AvantGuard and Support Staff names are very bad readable.

Online/offline image doesn't look good (transparency) and I found also a bug(?), check the screenshot.

Another problem might be using dark font colors, but the only solution is probably just removing all dark colors form the color list, but I think it's not needed.

Finally, most (new) smilies have a problem with transparency too. :( (this one is ok)

Okay. LiquidBlack has been activated. There still may be some small changes but it is usable for IE 7 +. IE 6 won't be supported.

We are planning on adding Liquid Black sometime this week, if not next.. Since its a subsilver based style there is alot of crappy code to be switched out as well as other things. But be looking for it soon.

Just so you get used to the fact BigC.. Subsilver is being discontinued when phpBB 3.2 comes out in the future. But, Im sure someone will take it over and keep it updated. Now phpBB 3.2 doesnt even have a release date and I would guess it probably wont be out in 2009 but does making you aware of it.

I'm in favor of atleast one dark style.

Thanks, DrDrrae. :)

proSilver and subSilver2 are maintained by phpBB (aside from the mods) but there are no guarantees that usermade styles will remain updated as new phpBB versions are released (as is the case with ktukblack, LiquidBlack, etc.). proSilver and subSilver won't be removed.

On another note, I have successfully updated LiquidBlack to the latest phpBB version but it still needs some work on the tracker side.

No, don't replace my subsilver2.

OK, if you could change the colors, it would be nice. Perhaps you could change the current default Avant style (it looks great and it's integrated with Avant homepage), perhaps the black background is not needed, just dark and bright text (RGB color 224 224 224).

BTW I see the styles prosilver and subsilver2 are very similar, so perhaps one could be replaced with the new dark style.

I can change it Dreamer..

Re: More (dark) board styles?

by Dreamer » Thu Feb 12, 2009 9:47 pm

It's not the black background, I need dark backgrond with bright (but not too bright) text.
