I looked for open source and free forums - and FluxBB I used in the Iinux CrunchBang days and liked it. And phpBB came up as well as an option which I've used on theWord website. And I like the old style as well. Both seem to have nice Dark themes availible as well. I was also looking for something that works well on mobile. In any case it takes time to dig around. But it is moving forward at least. Seems phpBB also has a very active user foundation.

Not sure but i took a look at FluxBB and i think they changed names.
FluxBB became Flarum.

Just their next project it is not FluxBB but a whole new thing. But it is in Beta stage and not really liking the new ways of things... But still looking around and gathering inteligence and information.
Ahh okay cool thanks!

Can you change the Theme on this forum by the user for another theme? I seem to not be able to find it in the option or maybe I am just blind.
There are many styles available.
A style is installed for the board, and can be set as default style. Other styles can be installed and set as default style. A style can be set for guest users, registered members can select a style to use from the installed styles. An admin can override a user style if necessary.

Have a look at the User guide, there a section about styles : https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... se_styles/
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

There is only one style installed on this board, hence your inability to change it here. The styles demo you have been pointed to shows all of the approved styles and any or all of them can be installed on your board for the individual user to choose from (should you as admin allow)

Indeed I was pointed to it and there are some nice themes that suits my eyes. I just wondered if it was possible to change it on the live forum to something that suits the eyes better. :) thanks

The username you entered is too long. The maximum length is 20 characters.
Hmmm, I'm trying to install the phpBB but it seems it only accept up to 20 characters in the nick? :) Is there a way to change this?

Dearly regards

You should ask support questions in the support forums and one subject per topic please, thanks, but:

ACP> User registration settings> Username length

Assuming you’ve completed the installation.

If you can’t complete the installation because of the length of the username create the user with a shorter name then edit it afterwards in the ACP.

Thanks, sorry I'm somewhat confused have so many things in my head so it is kinda light headed. I'm still looking into the Forums - nothing really stands out for me. Trying to use all of them here and there and test here and there. weighing the good and the bad and so forth.
I guess I might need to make another topic on the best themes for mobiles.
