It will include fixes for all the bugs that have been reported to me and that I have written down, or remembered.

I intend to bring it up on par with phpBB 2.0.17 standard and recode major parts, it's a mess as it is now. While still resembling subSilver, so to make MODding simpler, it will be more based on CSS than it was previously, less redundant, simply put: just a lot better!

The new version sports an updated look with brand new beautiful icons, buttons and graphics.


Hey Kail. Are you still working on the new version? I know you posted about this a while ago, but your site still says it's being redesigned. Is it in the works? Got any previews? 8)

I'm asking because I LOVE Chronicles - it's a must-have for every forum I create and since I'm making (yet another) forum for a friend, I decided to check it for updates. :)

That's cool.. I understand. I hope that you have some time in the future to do an update/revamp version! :D

In the meantime, I made an update script for anyone who wants to upgrade their Chronicles from 2.0.2 to 2.0.19... I posted it in this thread:

##
## Template name:   	Chronicles
##
## Template Version: 	1.04
##
## Compatible with:	phpBB2 2.0.1 (FINAL) _only_
##
## Author:       	Jakob Persson (jakob (dot) persson (at) iname (dot) com)
##			(spammer safe address, replace (dot) with . and (at) with @)
##
## WWW:			http://www.jakob-persson.com
##			http://www.eddingschronicles.com
##
## Description:  	A fantasy style template/theme (wood, stone,
##		 	parchment etc.). Based on the original subSilver but with
##		 	several modifications.
##
## Localized:		NO, English language support only. Download the subSilver SDK
##			from http://www.phpbb.com to create your own localized graphics.
##
## Installation:	Regular template installation procedures. If you need instructions,
##			scroll down one page.
##
## Comments:		There are a number of minor problems, they're all just visual glitches
##			and there was no way of getting rid of those without having to
##			release this template as a MOD. You're free to fix those problems if
##			find it worth the time. Be aware that it involves editing the actual
##			phpBB2 code, so don't do this unless you know at least something about
##			PHP programming.
##			One of the problems is that some links are hard to distinguish due to badly
##			matching font colors and backgrounds with low contrast.
##			I won't offer any instructions on how to do it and which files to edit
##			and so on. Generally, these problems can be fixed by adding a class
##			attribute to the HTML tag that is generated by phpBB. Then create a
##			corresponding class in the style sheet file (Chronicles.css) and
##			control its visual appearance by editing that class.
##			If you haven't got the faintest idea about what I mean, go look for a
## 			CSS "get started" guide or some tutorials on the subject. Webmonkey
##			(http://www.webmonkey.com) is a good place to look for such things.
##
## Questions:		Questions by email will not be answered. Instead I suggest you post
##			your question in the Style Development forum of at http://www.phpbb.com
##			If I am unable to help you, it's likely someone else there will be able to.
##
## Comments:		Comments are always welcome. If you find an error, encounter a problem
##			or has general ideas, suggestions or even criticism (hey, doesn't everybody
##			love what I do? strange thought... ;-) ) feel free to contact me by
##			email or by sening me a private message at the phpBB forums (my nickname
##			is Kail).
##
## Credits:		Many thanks to Patty Herford (http://www.elfenvald.com/)
##			for her great stone textures.
##			Thanks to Tom Beddard of subBlue Design (http://www.subblue.com)
##			for releasing the subSilver SDK, it made the creation of this
##			template so much easier!
##
## Disclaimer:		I am in now way responsible for what problems this template or you
##			may cause. May it be a third world war or a dead bird. It's not my problem!
##			So be careful, backup the database, backup the files and when you're sure
##			the backup files are safe, install this template. Installation instructions
##			are available at the end of this file.
##			If you wish to use parts of this template for your own creations, designs, skins,
##			themes, templates or anything else you must receive an expressed written consent
##			from the author (Jakob Persson).			
##			Do not delete the credit notice at the bottom of the phpBB pages. Your license
##			to use this template, parts of this template or any template derived from this
##			template may be revoked at the author's (Jakob Persson's) sole discretion.
##			Removal of the phpBB copyright notice or the template credit notice revokes your
##			right to use this template.
##
