Style updated to version 1.2.0.

Custom bbcode buttons are detected by their names instead of ids.
Added the list item with links to all forums/subforum.

Hi,

as I have said, this is really a good work. However, you should not make it too complicated. People like it because of its simple design.

Here are my sugegstions how I would improve this style:
1. background of .row should be white
2. if you want that background, at least use the same background for statistics, it is "disturbing"
3. make the Lock more visible, for example yellow/gold color http://bluesilver.net23.net/styles/blue ... locked.png
4. I dont understand the meaning of "Forums" dropdown menu in header on index. There are 2 lists of forums on the index now, what is it good for? I consider it disturbing
5. Remove View active topics from dropdown and put it on the same line as View unanswered. If user is logged in, display also View new posts and View your posts there
6. add hover effect for Search button
7. Remove alt texts from top menu, it is also disturbing OR add alt texts to all buttons in top menu (it is better if it is equal)
8. i would also remove the #top and .sub-menu2 so it is even more simple and clean design

Nice! This is much better. I consider it as one of the best phpBB styles.

Well now there are three "menus" under the logo (main menu, sub-menu with login, sub-menu2 with time). I think 2 menus would be enough. Therefor I suggest to remove .sub-menu2 and move the time to footer / remove time from the style completly (I dont really understand why the time is in phpbb styles. When I want to know the current time i will take a look to my clocks in my operating system).

There is also #top which I consider to be usless too, but not as much as the sub-menu2... well maybe it is not as much useless as I thought before :)

You were right, it looks much better without the second menu.

Great! I am happy you followed my suggestions. It really looks much better now.

There are some more details which I would change, but as we know details make the nice style :)

1. rounded blue login button
2. top Search button hover same as other top menu hovers
3. "Search this forum" Search button should have the same color as Post new topic button

4. remove bg and border from .bg4 in viewtopic - again, it is more simple
5. the width of the content is not the same everywhere

6. remove background and top border from #page-footer .navbar
7. make all buttons to look like New topic buttons

Great work! I dont know what more I could suggest :) Maybe a new header background but I dont know if you are a graphic designer too. I have noticed you used the header from another abandoned phpbb style. It is not bad, but more fresh, clean header would be perfect
