Changing the color theme?

Postby Wolvee » Sat, 19 Jul 2014 20:34:05

I know on this version of VB there's an option to have preset colored themes, is this function turned on? The Forest Green, Pee green yellow color combo gives my old eyes a headache.

Changing colors is above me, sorry! :)

Maybe Rick or Jay can help you out. :coffee:

I'll look into offering other color templates soon. Right now, it's locked in with this color combination. (and this isn't VB, it's PHPBB)

Pee green? If you pee green, you may wish to consult a medical professional.

Unrelated: my parents once owned a pea green Maverick.

Thanks General. I knew it was phpbb, I'm not sure why I typed VB. Maybe my mind is going where my old eyes are.

I added a prosilver (basically phpBB default) theme. I also added a quick theme change selector at the top right of the site where you can switch between the blue and green themes. I might try to work up a couple of other color combinations as well. The green theme will be the default.

Another screen shot with the blue site... It might need a tweak or two. Trying to make this maintainable at the same time offering different color variations. Maintainability is the reason that I've shied away from this for so long...

The green grows on you like moss... I'm not going to change it - just doesn't look right. It's like listening to the telephone with the wrong ear.

Green seems to be more restful to the eyes to me. That blue sample above sorta sucked my eyeballs halfway out of my noggin.

I don't think it's a good idea to put that online. WHO KNOWS who's checking? I love big-caliber and longe-range rifles and 1911 pistols, and I've got a few.

I can always use another 1911.
