[Release] Cobalt 2.0 (UPDATED! 2.0.20 compatible)

Post by Kail »

Release

Template name: Cobalt 2.0

Compatible with: phpBB 2.0.20 (see below)

Style: A high-tech template in blue with brushed metal style buttons and details.

Demo: http://www.jakob-persson.com/styles_demo/?s=3

Screenshot: http://www.jakob-persson.com/templates/cobalt

Download: http://www.jakob-persson.com/downloads

2006-04-28: New version released.
Topic updated for 2.0.20 release.

2006-01-08: New version released.
New version available, includes support for 2.0.19 which obsoletes the text below. Download it from my site (see download link above).

2006-01-02: phpBB 2.0.19-compatibility!
In order for this template to be fully compatible with 2.0.19 and support the new administration panel features you need to make a few manual changes. Upload the theme as usual, then copy the files from subSilver/admin to Solaris/admin overwriting the old files. I'll make an updated version available in a few days, until then, this will work too.

This is the second incarnation of the hugely popular Cobalt template for phpBB 2. This new version improves on the old one with an improved look and feel as well as fixes for a number of problems and bugs.

I know this is long-awaited release and I had originally intended it as a Christmas present to the phpBB community but other committments forced me to delay the release.

Those of you who have asked me for an updated version of Cobalt for 2.0.6-compatibility got a lot more. This new version features a fresh new finish and new nice feel plus all the bells and whistles you could dream of. Enjoy!

Very professional and better than this forum 8O :D . Fast loading despite the large areas of background images. The chunky icons is my favourite feature.

10/10 8O

Thanks. Guess what Marcus, I was in Skövde last year, participating in a symposium held by our academic friends at the local college, they have a program similar to ours.

I've updated the file, new version is 2.0.1a. It's a 2.0.1 alpha pre-release, it's perfectly usable and stable, only difference to the eventual full 2.0.1 release is that I intend to make several more fixes until I release the full 2.0.1. The fixes are visual glitches, all of them. Nothing major.

11/10. You should see it with Camino on the Mac. The Aqua-ness of the browser enhances the template ten fold. I feel like my quality of life has improved. ;)

WebScud: Care to post a screenshot? I'd like to see what it looks like on non-Windows platforms.

Calzone: The image set was made for translating the template, it only contains what's needed for that specific purpose.
