Forum Skins
« on: October 30, 2017, 06:14:05 AM »
The forum's dark background is hard on the eyes and taxes readability. Can you install an optional light-background skin on the forum, Andrew. Or are other skins already available and I just can't find them?

Profile/Modify Profile/Look and Layout.


The only other two themes available are just the SMF defaults.

I could probably add the same one that the BM forum uses (I added that over there).

I'm kind of tempted to migrate away from SMF when we move the forum. Not a fan of some parts of SMF.

I'm not either, but then I haven't really found an alternative I believe is much better, and I particularity hate "modern" forums.

I was thinking phpBB2 or something along those lines.

Haven't used it since they had the huge spam/hacking issue years ago. It was about that time that most people jumped to smf.

No, it should be above the time format, I will have a look at our permissions.

I have looked and all members have the only option for editing profiles set, not sure what is the problem at this stage.

Reasons I dislike SMF: the options config is kind of irritating. Members are now allowed to select their own theme.

Perfect, thanks.
