New Themes Installed !!
« on: January 05, 2008, 11:22:01 PM »
I've installed a good many new themes to choose from. The main problem is that many of them don't work with the "shout box". You'll have to experiment with them and consider whether or not the shout box is important to you or not.

UPDATE: Many of these themes have the Shoutbox at the bottom. To access:

There's a reason why patriotism is considered a conservative value. Watch a Tea Party rally and you'll see people proudly raising the American flag and showing pride in U.S. heroes such as Thomas Jefferson. Watch an OWS rally and you'll see people burning the American flag while showing pride in communist heroes such as Che Guevera. --Bob, from some news site

I found and incorporated the patch to make the shoutbox work on most of them. There may be one that the shoutbox doesn't work on.

I've been using Babylon. The only thing that's broken on it is the forum title at the top runs into the SMF logo at the right.

Babylon did seem to work fine. I'm going to look around some more, I don't think my eyes like this Enterprise theme I am trying out.

The Ig-Oh Theme is pretty cool. Probably not for dial-up users though.

I'm having a similar issue with Babylon.  I'll have to check out the page title and see if that can't be fixed.

For faster loads, try the Blue IT1 or whatever its called. Although as you can see below it leaves the sides of my monitor blank.

I'm using Tech Head, it's the one I started with. I occasionally try and switch but then various of the functions are in different places and I keep misclicking.

That makes sense. Most people are probably still using whatever the default is.

Excuse me, as I'm late to this party.

What are you guys talking about?

What are "themes"?
Democrats: A bunch of rich people convincing poor people to vote for rich people by telling poor people that other rich people are the reason they are poor

How do we know which one we are using?  Mine says Minerva Theme way down at the bottom. I thought it was the default theme.

I don't see avatars because this is Windows95.

I see posted images (in comments), but not avatars.

I turned avatars off myself. I posted them in the comments up thread or page 1 or whatever.
