Classic theme for the forum

Post by Zerebos » Mon Sep 28, 2020 10:57 am

As I'm sure many of you know, a couple of years ago the forum went through an upgrade. At the end of it, the theme of the forum was lost. I missed the look of the old forum--save for a few wonky issues with it. So I decided to create a modern take on the classic theme (as well as a fully modern version). I shared this back then with some users of the forum that I knew personally and they really liked it. After a while being inactive, I decided to come back and share this theme with everyone.

First things first though, here are a couple screenshots.



The red used in the screenshots is from the original forum, but this theme allows you to use whichever accent color you prefer. If you're a forum veteran, you may notice the overall width of the site isn't the same as the classic site. Luckily with this theme you can easily change the width of the page to match your reading preference. You can see some preview and instructions for these options here:

If this is something you would be interested in, I created some step-by-step instructions that you can follow here:

The tl;dr is, you need a browser extension called Stylus. Once that's installed, you can install the theme by just visiting this link ... i.user.css

If you have any feedback, whether it be a bug/issue or a suggestion of some kind, feel free to let me know. You can either use the github if you're familiar with that, or this thread.

Glad to see this actually on the forum now, so if I do something and end up deleting it or switching computers I won't have to hunt it down (again.)
