Site theme

Post  Paradiso on Mon Feb 21, 2011 9:58 am

What do you guys think of the theme now? I'm still gonna have a custom head banner made, but there lots of pre made skins which look pretty nice. I'm debating on whether it should be a darker theme like this, or a lighter one like before. Thoughts?

I know that some people may have trouble reading light text on a dark background, So the other way around would be more universal and retina display. :cyclops:
How about a banner contest. I'm definitely up for making one. Contest or not.

Anyone is welcome to post their banners in the site feedback section Smile
It would be best to wait till I decide on a theme though, so it matches.

I can change the text so it's black against a white or grey background though, that may help.

Personally, I like these Halloween colours. It's damn classy. I run a forum with a dark background, and some of the older members complain about it hurting their eyes.

As nice as the site looks now, it's a bit dull for my taste. More themes would be nice.

Is there a skin/theme selector option for Forumotion?

Check out HitSkin.com.

Although, changing themes means possibly having a new logo designed, changing the google ad colors, and going through to make sure all the text is visible, which would amount to the site being down for about a day.

It's not a big deal to me, I chose this theme because it's clean and simple, but there are others out there. Feel free to suggest your favorites. HitSkin has a feature where anyone can test what the theme would look like on this actual site, which is very cool.

I meant a theme selector button on the site itself. I just think it would be better if we were to have more options rather than replacing the current one.

Only the admin, me, can permanently change it.

And as far as a different theme for each user, I'm not sure that's possible here. I know some sites have a preference selector for a dark or light themes, but I haven't seen anything like that on forumotion. I'll look into it though.

How much forum customization do you have? For example, can you access phpBB mods?

There's quite a bit of customization. I can use CSS, and change individual colors with a menu, on top of applying themes and styles. The tradeoff for them hosting everything for free is not having access to the database and files, so, no mods as far as I know. There are some very nice looking forumotion sites though, you just gotta know what your doing. And I'm still learning Smile
