Any way you could provide a higher contrast between the top table cell color and the words "Forum", "Topics", "Posts" and "Last Visit"?

I only ask because the current two colors really make my eyes wig out.

Hi fishfreek,

I will be editing the css for that and I haven't reached that stage yet but it will be changed.

Serious layout and colour change, hence the update to v0.1.0

Any queries or requests should be posted here.

Hi Tim,

I would suggest you use a subtle amount of drop shadow on the images and text - like this, but blue (obviously);

Image

The folders are better at 19px x 13px as you can get slightly bigger/better dots, etc.. on;

BTW the font to use is Helvetica.

Brilliant, I knew I could count on you giving me sound advice!

I was wondering about the font, it now looks a lot better. But, the combination of -> that is used has lost its perspective with the font change.

Yes that post icon is a toughy, looks like you got that spot on! I'll try some drop shadow, and add a stronger shade of blue.

Good idea, the icons feel a bit too small, though I didn't think the Invision Board used dots. I maybe wrong.

Cheers Daz, much appreciated. :)

Hi,

Invision Power Board as it is now called uses the dot folders to show you which threads you have posted in - a similar feature (not using dot folders though) is to be included in phpBB 2.2, but there is also a MOD for the current version.

Oh I see, my bad. Once phpBB 2.0.4 is "officially" released, I'll probably incorporate that mod into the template.

There are some artifacts in the logo and a typo stating: "powerd by phpBB2." You might want to consider using a PNG file as the logo instead.
