Yeah, not sure I am thrilled with it either. I like the blue but not the font color.

The cool thing is that I can apply a template to easily change the appearance. The one we were using was Rainbow Pearl.

I'll change to a couple others. Let me know what you think.

I'd be happy to try any themes you guys want me to try out. Here is a site that has many examples of what the forum would look like:

http://www.phpbb3styles.net/

You can also google "phpbb3 style templates" for other examples.

Better....
on another forum I go to the option to change the template was in the user CP...don't know if that's an option or not?

That way everyone can have the template "they" want....

Went to the other board and under the User CP in Board preferences there was an option to change board "styles".

It was located between the "my Language" and "my timezones" selectors...


I assume that you (Todd) load these and everyone get's to choose which style they like....

Hmmm, I was looking for that too. Can you point me to the other forum you're referring to?

I also realize that the forum is much slower now. The "upgrade" was a necessary evil as the management side is much better. However, we also have the option of migrating to other BB software. We're currently using phpbb3, but there are other options such as vbulletin (what they use on AGW) and SMF. The good thing about phpbb3 is that it is free while I do not believe that vbulletin is. Suggestions are always welcome.

Here it is:
http://www.theakforum.net/phpBB3/index.php
but you can't get into the user CP without being a member. The CP there looks just like yours except for that missing pulldown option...

That looks like Acid Tech. Unfortunately I only had Acid Tech Purple handy which I have applied temporarily. Does this have it?

Found the same Acid Tech but did not see the option in control panel. Do you know the forum admin? Maybe you could put us in touch...
