This should give a good representation of what is possible with pbpBB2. Practically an advertisement I hope. My templates arent quite done but they are geting there. Im mostly in flux because phpBB2 is still in flux. I am also workign on a large guilde on custom phpBB2 templates. I intend to donate such guide to the group.

Check it out andlet me know what you think. This represents a radical alteration of the looks.

Maybe you shouldn't set a:hover to bold text.
Butting a separator between topics would be nice too.

Thanks for the complements. Sure there are a couple issues but it is gettign there and Im becomming a bit of a phpBB2 template expert in the process.

As for the bold text, all of it should be bold, not just on hover. Hover should just add overline.

Very cool. I especially like the chipped metal platey things that everything is "engraved" on.

The a:hover works fine for me (overline, no change in boldness)

One thing: The lowest panel (where it says "Powered by phpBB 2.0 beta-1 © 2001 phpBB Group") is huge! And theres only that one line of text at the top. Perhaps shrink it?

Hi !

Wow looks really great :o

Now phpBB2 has another great theme totally different to common themes.
I hope this example inspires many other users to create their own theme. So we will have a large collection :D
