I made a couple of nice themes for boards.ie. Check them out!

I've been off work for the last couple of weeks and have been playing around with theming the site.. I don't like the default skin and I really dislike the dark skin. Like all web-devs, I like when people use something I've made so I'm sharing them. There are quite a lot of changes to the site overall.. Not just colours.
For now, it's just two dark modes. Dark purple and dark blue. I'll add two clear themes later this week, or you can find them in the Feedback "Skins" thread and install them yourself.


Screenshot:




The extension is Stylus. I use this extensively all over the internet as other users submit styles for all the big sites. I have dark modes for FB, the Guardian, Google etc. so even if you don't want these themes, I still highly recommend the extension.

Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/styl-us/
Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...fhncgmne?hl=en

How to install: Click the icon and click Find Styles. Look for Dark Blue / Dark Charade





They're not 100% finished yet so feedback is welcome. Bump if you like them so others will see them.

Me? It's just CSS, not JS, so it's impossible for me to get anything. The extension has hundreds of thousands of installs and is recommended by Firefox. It has 350k installs on Chrome and is 4.7 / 5.

What if you collect our personal details from this script... and then before we know it, we're kidnapped and we wake up drugged and lying in a warm bathtub, having our organs harvested for sale on the south american medical black market?

It does happen!

Thanks. I thought it might be one or two hundred lines but vBulletin is so hard to work with, it ended up being over 700 with all the comments stripped out. There aren't enough css classes added to the html compared to what I'm used to working with.

I made a few changes since I posted so anyone who started using it early, and the new post button while viewing a forum is half hidden, should do the upgrade in the options menu of the extension.

Only Firefox on mobile can have extensions like Stylus. No idea why Chrome doesn't allow them. Not really worth the effort personally as I think the Touch theme is fine, and very few people would use them.

Any chance you could have the site and give us back the old version?

Won’t. Say. A . Word. To anyone.
