Post by Razvanus » Tue Aug 08, 2017 8:44 pm

Hello guys,

I want to use this theme http://www.awesomestyles.com/phpbb3-sty ... aniversary for my forum, but this is for 3.0x not 3.1x how i can convert this to 3.1x?

Thanks.

In reality you cannot - if I remember correctly there are about 12k code changes in a style between 3.0 and 3.1 - and then there are another few thousand from 3.1 to 3.2

You will be far better off finding a 3.1 (or better still a 3.2) style that meets your needs.

I saw a person who managed to do a 3.1 theme only after it was released, so it's not really impossible.

I did not say it was impossible - just very difficult and time consuming.

Are you sure that they actually converted the style or did they create a style based on prosilver?

The one who modified, modified we_clearblue before it officially appeared, but this theme as well is based on prosilver

The best thing to do is install a new 3.1 or 3.2 board and try to copy the old 3.0 style into the new prosilver style using the inspector of your browser.
Sorry! My English is bat ;) !!!

It is possible to convert that style but you would have to ask author to do that,hire someone to do that or do it yourself as it's not listed in CDB here. I found this style in the CDB that is WOW themed for 3.1.10 https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/pbwow3/ maybe it will work out for you.
