Forum Themes

I thought I had posted this, but apparently I had deleted the tab before I did.

Is is possible to add some other themes/skins to this forum? While I like the current colors, they are at times a little too bright for my eyes and I would like the ability to change off on the colors as needed.

If it is just colors you want to change you can do that now. Go to user CP and then customize profile. Although I am not sure you can save it as a skin and then switch back and forth easily.

I also think this would be a wonderful idea if it became possible to implement.

Customizing the profile is excellent but this is only for the member's profile. In the control panel under edit options and then under miscellaneous options there is a forum skin adjustment option. Under this there are currently two different options fixed and liquid (fixed being the default one). Both of these are identical color schemes. As far as I can tell the only difference that I have seen is that the liquid option creates a wider view. I think it would be nice to have colored skin options/schemes added under this adjustment. Of course I realize there is much work being done re-organizing the forum lately (and this is making good improvements which are greatly appreciated. Thanks). If circumstances become available to permit the option to add extra skins then it would be well appreciated.

I can't even figure out what all those various parts are that have to be changed in the Customize Profile section, much less assign colors to every part of the web page.

Aren't other "pre-mixed" color schemes & themes available from the web host? As Javed pointed out, the two options currently available to us are virtually the same.

I've been trying out the liquid skin a bit more. It actually stretches and reflows (hence the name liquid). So the text area within the forum can generate a wider or narrower view depending on the degree of screen minimization. This is quite useful! (This is the same as the fixed skin only in the color arrangement!)

Xanthe, customizing the user profile is worth trying (if you are interested in doing so).

Customizing the member's (user) profile is entirely different to skins. Skins are applied to the entire forum viewing areas. Would be great to have colored skins available, as well as the option to apply the fixed or liquid settings to each of these color scheme's skins!

That's what I'm interested - changing the color of the forum views, not my particular profile. That can stay the default color as far as I care; I usually only visit it for reminders of what I had posted or to see why my karma level changed.

I believe changing your profile will change the entire forum view for you personally. Your profile is where you make the changes, not where the changes apply.

For me to alter skins, the changes are made in the control panel (under edit options, miscellaneous options). These apply to most of the forum including the member's profile. The two skins available are fixed and liquid. The settings can also be temporarily changed at the lower left corner of most pages throughout the forum.
