Forum Styles

Post by david63 » 01 Feb 2013, 18:47

The eagled eyed ones amongst you will have noticed that I have uploaded three new forum styles today.

- Redsteel - a traditional red based style

- Phantom - a modern blue based style

- Mobile - a "cut back" style designed for use on mobile devices which has some limited functionality. I would not suggest that you try to use this on a PC

I believe that these are all working correctly but if you should find any problem then please post them here and I will try and fix them.

Thanks David...you spoil us! :D

I'll give them a whirl, though I've only just got used to the prosilver version!

Right....the phantom option is brill. Has the better layout of the Artodia, but without the dark background of the black version.

The red option is the same poorer layout as the prosilver, but is red.

Phantom is the way to go!

Just giving the Artodia Phantom a go, it doesn't seem to have the drop down box next to your name that gives you the option of filtering by unread posts like the Artodia black did ... but it looks good so far :D

Some people are NEVER satisfied.

Good to have a wider choice but I will be sticking with the Artodia black.

I prefer the Artodia black, I think it looks a bit classier.

I agree the black looks classier....but I prefer the practicality of the light background. Once you get used to the change, it is much better IMO.

I tried Phantom but didn't like it at all so it's back to black for me.

Stop picking on Wina, I happen to agree totally, I don't care for the black but I want the drop down box.

The mobile style will now "kick in" automatically if you access this site from a mobile device.

There is a button at the top to switch back to your "normal" style if you so wish

Aha...that's why Wina's changed to mobile display a few minutes ago. (From her netbook btw).

I have to admit that I wasn't keen on the black at first and it's nice to have a choice, thank you David. However, having had a look at them all, I think I will probably go back to the black - I've got used to it!
