View Full Version : New phpBB Theme?

07-18-2003, 01:17 PM

I know you got a lot on your table right now.. but I was wondering if you've considered changing the phpbb template or adding another one we could select from.

I was just hoping to make the forums here not look like every other phpbb forum out there.

The process is pretty easy:
1: goto http://www.phpbb.com/styles/styles_demo
2: find a template you like
3: Download template at: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/catdb.php?db=2
4: upload the template to your phpbb2/templates directory
5: goto the phpbb control panel and install the new template and select if you want it as the default template for all users or just an option to switch to.

Another option would be maybe somebody in the community could design a forum template based on the Open-Realty templates but this would take some time and talent which I don't have.

Anyways... just a suggestion for the future... but definitely not a priority.

Ya, I will load a few more templates when i get a chance, i need to load them and the avatar galleries back on.. I loast them all a few months back after a server crash and some php issues forced me to delete the forum and load the database backups..

Cool.. I've only just found your fork (now official version) of OR just a week ago and I love it! you've done a great job with the features and cleaning up/fixing the code from the original.

Now that I read my first post sorry if it sounded a bit strange with putting the instructions on how to change the templates but I've been to a few sites recently with phpbb and suggested they change the templates and many of them didn't have a clue about it.

Anyways.... Keep up the good work! love this project!
