New Theme Choice - Orion Pobursky - 2017-01-13

 I found a new theme for the forums that might be liked better by some. It's a bit less white and more grey like the old forums software.  I still have to do some modifications to it (e.g. some images are broken) but you can give it a test drive.  

- Go to User CP
- In the sidebar under "Your Profile" click "Edit Options"
- On the right under "Other Options" change "Board Style" to "stb"
- Click Update Options

Please let me know what you think and if you notice any broken images which seems to be the biggest issue right now.

Personnaly I kind of prefer "regular" theme - especially the explicit blue text for links. With the new theme you have to mouse over to discover -by chance- that there is a link...
Otherwise, the search box is missing (as well as banner/link to LDraw website)

Would you please so kind and add the "purge spammer" button to the new theme?! ;-)

I'm confused on what you are referring to.

I think I might "bleed" some of the color scheme into the default theme.  There's also functionality to have different "color only" themes with the same underlying html.

Nevermind, I figured it out.  It doesn't show up with users who have greater than 10 posts.

That said, I don't think the new theme will stick around for very long as I found a way to "reskin" the main theme.

Strange, I had a spammer with exactly one post. So I decided to switch the theme to the old one temporally.
