[ABD] ModernUI for phpBB 3.0.8

Post by AdamR » Tue Nov 02, 2010 11:46 am

Style Name: ModernUI
Author: AdamR
Copyright: 2010 Adam Reyher, Titanium Studio <http://www.titaniumstudio.com>

Current Version: 1.0.0-dev

Information:
ModernUI is planned to be a simplistic, aesthetic, and affordant modern style for phpBB 3.0.x. The style combines a simple UI with enhanced features utilizing jQuery in order to provide a more pleasant experience while browsing the board. ModernUI will utilize the 960 Grid System.

I'm planning on doing some experimentation with this style, rebuilding the style from scratch and not basing it off of either prosilver/subSilver2 in an attempt to significantly "clean up" the DOM and stylesheet. The advantage is a highly simplified and standards-compliant DOM. The downside is that all MODifications added to the style would need to be manually interpreted instead of basing the code changes off of prosilver. I haven't determined whether or not I'll maintain two versions, one based off of prosilver and one not.

Development/code:

Status:
Preliminary design work is in progress. I anticipate having a working demo of ModernUI in the coming weeks. Be sure to follow development of ModernUI over at GitHub.

I love the top bar, reminds me a bar of Linux :) And simplicity is very good, icons combine with the colors and white with gray in the header and footer are very cool.


Has more pictures? :roll: (viewforum, viewtopic, ucp, etc... )

I'll be working on getting those out pretty soon if possible. The screenshot you currently see in the first post was created entirely in Photoshop, so no real code for it exists quite yet. I'm still in the preliminary design states. :)

Be sure to follow the development over at the repo on GitHub.

Considering 960 is getting fairly long of tooth, perhaps a more modern design approach would be appropriate for a style with the name "ModernUI" ? I have to admit, I have never been a fan of grid based layout anyway especially given I've had a 30" display for the last 3 years. If you are compelled to proceed with a grid based template you might want to bump up the width just a bit. :)

12 column. :)

My work on this got delayed due to work and Thanksgiving here in the US, but I'm slowly pumping it out. Things should speed up significantly since I have most of the major CSS done at this point.

I'll really try to get a demo up very soon.

Hey Adam, I know you're busy, but any update on this? I like the screenshot and think you should continue work on this.
Don't forget to smile today. :)

There's some other projects I'm working on right now that have taken up most of my time. Finishing this is certainly at the top of my list, though. :)
