Why is prosilver still default theme?

Post by schaakspeler » Sun Jun 25, 2017 8:09 am

Let's be honest here: prosilver sucks. Its design dates back over 10 years and it's not appealing at all.

To answer the question - because nobody has created another one yet.

There is plenty of discussion about the "new" style which is being planned over on area51 and I am sure the developers would more than welcome your contribution as you apparently have some views on how/where the style should be going in the future.

I am not sure if you are aware of the number of man hours required to create a new style for phpBB - but it is colossal so any help would be more than welcome.

another thing about prosilver is that it is a Foundation for many other styles which could be called "appealing"

Many 3.2 styles on offer - depend on prosilver for inheritance.

You wouldn't know it half the time looking at the alternative style but that alternative style wouldn't function without prosilver being at the top.

there are over 20 styles, probably more in the Styles database that 3.2 Admins can Install, a lot of them look entirely different to prosilver

In my opinion proflat is one of the best styles available. it would probably need some tweaking, but I think it's a great foundation: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... t/demo/3.2

Ten years ago he looked normal, but now the users of the Internet are simply spoiled.
