Thanks. Dumping support for IE8 makes things easier ;).

Thanks. Some of my extensions were developed specifically for this style, like the Breadcrumb Menu.
I've been using it in phpBB 3.0.12 for a long time. But I decided to split it up, so other can use it too.

This is a stunning design and style, you are very talented PayBas

Would you have any interest in making a generic style in this design? A non Warcraft one if you like once 3.1 is out and the WoW is finished of course.

I love the layout and extra features

Did you have something specific in mind? I mean, a lot of the styling assets are directly game related (either WoW, Diablo or Heroes of the Storm).

I honestly don't really know what a "generic" version would look like. There has to be some inspiration.

And a lot of what the PBWoW 3 extension does is specifically related to certain games (generating player icons and avatars based on profile field input for example). Basically the only "generic" part of the extension would be the collapsible forum categories and footer blocks ;).

What I'm saying is: take away the "gaming" stuff... and there's not much left.

It's just the layout of it I like, the colour scheme is amazing but of course that is WoW applicable but the actual layout can be used on any Forum for any topic. The background pic can be changed or taken away, a different logo pic depending on the user's Forum theme. For example I have run modelling Forums in the past and also Sport Forums.

I'll see what I can do. But don't hold your breath. This stuff takes a huge amount of time.

No pressure from me PayBas, it's just the best style I've seen. My fave up to now has always been the Glacier style but they stopped work on that ages ago. This style is better than that one in my opinion

I just love the layout

I would release a beta so people can play around with it and test it... but there are simply too many open PR that need to be merged into the core before PBWoW 3 will work.

Wow, this is awesome!

I've been looking for a style like this for so long, I've been looking to make my forum transparent like yours and I finally found a style that does it. (Love the Wildstar one)

¿We can edit the width, icons? ¿We can enable the "Latest Topic Title"?
With that, I'm 100% in, good job man, I'm hyped for the final version.
