OK, its over to you guys. I've changed the options under your user profile.

Click on your profile and then scroll down to the Preferences section.

You can now pick a Board Style.

Try them out and see which one you prefer.

None of them are complete, but we now have enough knowledge on board to setup one of them correctly to integrate with the rest of the site design. None of them are perfect either and I realise each has their strong and weak points - size of fonts etc.

Anyway, have a quick look and then vote for the one you prefer. Then we'll spend some time to get it sorted out as the main theme for the forum.

If you know of a better phpBB skin we could try, let us know here.

The more views and votes the better.

I voted for Morpheus, but which one are you talking about? The "Gray" or "Blue" version? Prefer the gray.

ps. is it right that it doesn't go the width of the screen now, and just appears in the middle part of the screen (if you know what I mean)?

lol.

Yes, the final version will probably go the width of the menu banner. Looks a bit neater IMO. Although if people want it to go the full screen width, just say.

I'd prefer it to go the full width, but that's just IMHO :roll:

Don't forget that things like fonts/font sizes and colours can be tweaked so it's just the overall look that you need to like :)

Personally I like Softmetal and think it would look quite good with the ///M background and the current menu/header.

I also like Morpheus - currently prefer grey, but if we tweak the blue so that it is darker and not so vibrant I think I'd be happy with that one.

I like Chunkstyle too, but I think with the dark grey menu/header we'll be using it might not work as well as softmetal. The fonts in Chunkstyle are easily fixed (much more of a problem on the Mac than the PC as it doesn't specify a decent Mac font so the Mac makes do with something else).

I also like Artemis.. but too close to Morpheus perhaps. Again would look quite different with the width fixed and the menu/header & Background in place.

So in order of preference:

SoftMetal
Morpheus DARK Blue
Morpheus Grey
Artemis
ChunkStyle



what do you mean we're only allowed one vote!?! ;)

RE: forum width.. you could adjust the top menu image so that it fades to grey and then repeats to the right, you could then use the ///M as the right had border image and insert that at the end of the row.

That way you can specify the menu table to be a %age of the screen width and expand as the user expands the window - that way it will be the same width as the forum below and look better if people want it in WWWIIIIIIDDDDDEEEEEE screen :)

Or we could keep it as 780px ;)
