Color variants - There's something not clear...

Post by Ishimaru Chiaki »

Hello !

I'm about to reboot all my style to make them compatible with 3.1.0 and since I see many users wanting the Prostylize grey version back, I'd like to make a bundle of color variants of my Stylize style.

But......

There's something that is unclear in the styles submission policy

Here is the part I'm talking about :
No separate clone submissions (variants of a style, such as color or slight design variants) are allowed for phpBB 3.1. The Template/Theme/ structure allows you to include several variations (i.e. different themes to achieve different color schemes) all in one package.
Example scenario (using example "ABCStyle"):
/ABCStyle/
contrib/ (optional)
template/
theme/
style.cfg

/ABCStyleBlue/
theme/

/ABCStyleGreen/
theme/

/ABCStyleRed/
theme/
On one side, we have to make only one package containing all variants, but the example shown shows them as if they were siblings and I see no style.cfg in the extra variants. So, how on earth are they supposed to be seen as variants ?

Thanks in advance for clarifying this.

Take a look at the Aero style (there are probably others but that is the first that came to mind) - that has several colour variations packaged with it

Hello and sorry for my late response.

Aero is gone, but I found out Elegance (from Arty) has color variants, so I took a look and now I understand better how it works. I didn't know it was possible to make a style inherit from another style that itself inherits from prosilver.

Now with that, THE DARKGREY STYLE WILL FINALLY RETURN !!! \o/ *flutter jumps like a overhappy yoshi*

Thanks for the hint !
