Quote from: Rob Farley on May 21, 2019, 02:14:24 amOk, it turns out that the updated forum software is so cutting edge that SMF only have a single theme that's confirmed as compatible.

I've installed it, but I'll keep an eye out for other options.

Likewise - I'm assuming as soon as 2.1 stops being a RC loads of folks will upgrade their themes.

Those of you who like me hate light on dark, can use the theme picker (click on your username, Forum Profile -> Look and Layout, and click on 'change' to the right of Current Theme)- Curve2 is the dark on light original default.

QuoteStill need to reset the logo, not sure of the filepath on Mike's server.

Root dir is (for historical reasons) /var/www/pwc.altrion.org/forums/

Have fixed smileys, I think.

Personally, I've always liked a light-on-dark theme. I use it on all my terminal sessions on Linux. It's easier on the eyes and takes me back to the old days with VT240 and Wyse terminals which were green or amber on black. Good Times!

I turned that option on specifically because I know light on dark is an issue for some people, either aesthetically or medically.

Thank you for that, I actually couldn't even see some of the text on the default theme. Fortunately could read enough to work out how to change it!

Other than default colour scheme, all looks good to me. Messages were better as it auto saved sent message rather than me having to tell it to.
We've even got a specific smiley for Andy Miller  :police:

And just in case there are any fellow luddites out there, I have just had to redo all my notification settings, which had all defaulted to me receiving no emails on anything.
Notifications tab is reached through your user profile. Mike or Rob will probably be able to provide better instruction if needed.

I will be taking the website and forum down for a few minutes in the next hour or so in order to tidy up a whole mess of cables under the desk.

There are now another couple of forum themes available for people to choose from. They're nothing particularly special but if people want a choice you've now got one.

Once again, this is every theme currently available to us on this version of the software. For a grand total of 4.
Current games (and armies) played: Gaslands, Direwolf Rampant, Frostgrave, Bolt Action & Operation Squad (Desert Rats, Communist Chinese, Russians, partisans, Americans, Finns, Italian Paras), In Her Majesty's Name, Judge Dredd Miniatures, Dreadball, Deadzone, Mobile Frame Zero, Uncharted Seas (Orcs), Necromunda (Pit Slaves, Escher), Wings of War (WWI and WWII), Mordheim, Alien vs Predator, Warpath

Apologies for the site downtime overnight yesterday/today. As far as I can see, something (I suspect a misconfigured jail in fail2ban) started grabbing open file handles until the system ran out :D

I have, I believe, fixed this so it won't happen again :D
