phpBB updated (Now on 3.2 with dark & light themes!)

Post by Peter200lx » Mon Jul 03, 2017 12:18 am

Just updated from phpBB 3.1.9 to 3.1.10, and updated the themes for the version bump. Please let me know if you find anything new wrong.

I'm also interested in updating us to phpBB 3.2, but none of our current themes are compatible with it. If anyone has suggestions for themes (both light and dark) for 3.2 post them here. I'll try and look myself at some point as well. If there is a good theme set to go to we'll probably update next time I've got some spare moments.

Looks like the team is calling them "styles" these days.
I vote CA Orbital for dark, and CA Halcyon for light.

Sadly neither of those support phpBB 3.2:
phpBB Version(s) 3.0.14

Right you are!
In that case, I vote Hexagon for dark, and Allan Style - SUBSILVER for light.

Oh sweet, someone else has taken up the task of digi and simplicity and has updated it for 3.2:
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/digi/
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... implicity/

I'll look into upgrading the forums and using those themes!

EDIT / CLARIFICATION: I've not updated anything recently, will try to do that soon.

Aww, was I the only one using the third theme? Understand it wasn't fully functional but liked it better than the default light theme. Oh well, shouldn't take too long to get used to, besides the "not logged in" feeling.

(I'm usually on the Obsidian forums at the same time I read these ones so I like having them have completely opposite colour schemes)

Sadly `we_universal` is not supported for phpBB 3.2 :-/
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/we_universal/
https://inventea.com/en/projects/we_universal
we_universal 2.4.1
phpBB version: 3.1.4
Release date: 2015-05-23
Let me know if you find another theme you'd prefer and when I get the time I'll try and see if I can customize it for us and install it:

Hmm, didn't realise how relatively recent 3.2 is and how few themes exist for it as a result. Only 40 listed on the official website. Flat Style is probably the one most in keeping with the old one. Latte is kinda cute though.

Out with the old! Also, in with the old, I guess, since I've gone back to the dark theme.

Thanks for keeping the ol' tin can afloat.
