Hi, Someone told me that my board was not supported anymore so I haven't done any update on since 3.0.11 and i need to get my board up to date.
We want to keep everything the same and I just wondering if someone can confirm how i can do these updates so I can keep the same theme on my board.
If anyone can advise,

I think I may have posted this on the wrong topic line sorry cant delete to add to correct one.

Well, completely keeping the board unchanged will likely be very difficult. Styles has changed so much between phpBB 3.0 and the versions thereafter that you can't keep the same style.

In upgrading (to 3.1.x, since 3.2 has not been released yet) you would loose all of your modifications and styles. You can take a look through our Styles Database where we have many styles available and I'm sure there are ones available that look like your current style that you can modify. :)

Thanks Jim, it so hard to find one like we currently have but i keep looking, thanks for the info.

could you recommend where i could find a dark theme, you only have 4 on this site that are 3.1 and none of them even look remotely the same the rest of the themes are all 3.0 and there is some there that I like but I cant use them.

how about a link to your board so we can see what you are working with. I have not seen the Darksunred style anywhere.

Hi Lasso :)

Given the extent of changes between the 3.0x and 3.2x development branches, styles need to be re-written instead of being upgraded.

It would be better to find a 3.2x style that closely resembles your design, or, attempt to re-colour prosilver 3.2x to look visually similar. Also worth noting that your current style is based on the subsilver style which is no longer supported by phpBB or included in the download file, so it will be difficult to find another table-based layout compatible with 3.2

Sorry this probably isn't the reply you were hoping to receive :(

As christian has pointed out subsilver was dropped for endless reasons one major reason for you to do as he has suggested would be it's in no way responsive, and will not work well on other devices.

To help illustrate his second point do not limit yourself to a theme based on color as that's something that we can easily help you fix. For example ... e/demo/3.2 theme with some minor changes to the underlying CSS using a variant of these guides viewtopic.php?f=591&t=2413816 and viewtopic.php?f=591&t=2426201 should help to edit any part of the theme with ease! it can really get you very close. Then just use your current imageset.
