Could you please upload the old phpbb theme if it still exists? I'm finding the new theme to be a bit un-intruitive. You could keep the new one as the default, just add the old one so that you can select it in your settings.

I agrees. I don't like this new theme any. The old one was easier on the eye.

But, I like this layout/scheme! And since I'm more important than you, its staying! Laughing

Plus, its probably just because its different. You'll get used to it. Razz

I don't mind the bottom buttons, but I do find the colours a little hard to deal with. I know people have said "red is madman's color" many times, but I still maintain that it is a really bad choice for site design. Also, red and orange clash a little too much for me, and the faded colors look really washed out.

In my opinion, the left-side icons work better if there are less colors and more shapes. It's just easier to pick that way, and you can be more consistent with what things mean. It's much easier to grasp that purple is read and blue is unread, for example, than it is that a bright color is unread and a washed out color is read.

Currently there are: read/unread, popular/not popular, sticky/not sticky and maybe more. These are independent, so it'd be good if some of them were colors and some were icon shapes. (Though IMO the popular designation is a complete waste of time.)

I like the new look for the most part... the icons are nice. About the only problem is that, on my LCD, the red *really* stands out.

I don't like it. Greys are too similar, and the red stands out too much.

I don't mind the reds ... etc, it's the unread & read topics that are difficult to differentiate (as I have said somewhere else).


btw, some of the quote and edit buttons are cropped for me.

I love it. I think it's way ahead of the previous one in terms of style and usability. Unfortunately I seem to be the minority in this issue Crying or Very sad .

It's a little bright, but bearable. So I like the new style. Smile

I like the original suggestion... Any chance of the original theme being available as an alternate theme so the user can pick which they like? I've seen sites/boards that do that.
