Is anyone gonna get the new "chameleon" style when it's released?

Post by Siguza »

Hi,

I'm just curious, will anyone get the new chameleon style.

If you don't know what it is, here's the page

Honestly I'm happy with prosilver right now, but I'll give it a go when it's released.

Not for some considerable time as virtually every extension will need to be re-written.

I'll probably put it on a test board.

That is not just a new style, it is a whole new version of phpBB. Everyone that upgrades to phpBB-4 would get that style.

Looks like Chameleon it is not a style at all but I am not sure though.

I believe, and this may not be correct as it changes almost as often as I change my socks, that there will also be a "prosilver" style in phpBB 4 - although I am not sure how that will work as from what I have read there will need to be some significant changes to the core in order to accommodate the Chameleon framework based new style.

That's because it's chameleon-like. :P

phpBB4 will probably take ages to finish. I mean like, we'll probably have 3.4, 3.5, you know the rest.

Just out of curiosity, is there a specific feature or element of Chameleon that particularly appeals to you?

I don't know tbh. The only thing I know about phpBB4 is Chameleon.

If it's a whole new version of phpBB then I will wait at least a few months so that the major/significant bugs (hopefully) get ironed out before upgrading.

That cards layout IMO should be offered as an alternative not as a default layout. Imagine having 8+ categories with odd forums, just like that screenshot..too much empty space. A better approach would be to keep the same horizontal layout but with better UI and more elements, such as default support for avatars on both OP and last poster ( e.g vBulletin, Discourse ).

To get Chameleon also means getting phpBB 4.0 (Triton). They go together. I doubt proSilver will be compatible.

Will I use it? Hell yeah.

After speaking with Hanakin about a possible ACP re-design to go with it, he said it will not happen until phpBB 4.1 or so.

I don't like modern-looking websites, I like websites that look something like this

Don't mind the text, you get the idea.

Soooo, since I don't like modern looking websites, you can probably take a good guess what style I'll use ;)
