New Forum Style?

Post by brimstoneSalad » Wed May 11, 2016 9:16 am

So, I'm not sure if we'll be able to get the old Style off the other server (it's not essential to site function).
If you like this one, that's cool. If you have any suggestions for another phpBB style, though, or color scheme, etc. please discuss here.

There are a bunch of styles here: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styles-2

Make sure to try out their demos on your mobile or tablet or whatever if you use that; maybe we can find one that doesn't have the problems of the last style.

I kind of like this style:
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/artodia_simplicity/demo/3.1

(you can change the styles at the top the preview them in the frame on that page)

I think the one you picked is probably the best, brimstone. If we used it, could you change the colors on it so that its red or grey instead of green?

Do you not like green? :mrgreen:
This is a vegan forum, after all.

We can change the colors. One main color, and an accent color would probably be needed.
Any suggestions?

I like this one:
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... e/demo/3.1

I also like the one you linked, brimstone, but i hate this shade of green. Some suggestions: (you can use colorpicker.com)
#44AB2B
#2A661B
#26940A
#71B061
#558549

I think any of those would work fine. I particularly like the 2nd, 3rd and last one.

I like doing green. This is a nice one: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/khaki/

And this one has a cool design, but I didn't get a full screen look: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/green_vision/

I was worried it wouldn't fit with TVA's logo, but now I realize that doesn't matter because we changed the forum name!

I experimented a bit. The accent color in the theme is meant to highlight something (like unread posts), so it needed to be bright.

What do you think of green and orange, something like this:

That looks good, it's easy on the eyes and seems functional.
