[ALPHA] Apatite for phpBB 3.3.0

Post by forumDB »

Style Name: Apatite
Author: forumDB

Style Description:
Apatite has served as my entrance into developing styles for phpBB. It is a professional, modern and minimal style that tries to put aside any clutter so that the focus is entirely on the content. And of course, it's all responsive, and looks just as good on a phone as on a computer screen. All updates on the development will be shared in this thread.

Style Version: 1.0.0
phpBB Version: 3.3.0
Demo URL: https://forumdb.net/demo
Download URL: https://mega.nz/file/Tx4xQIZI#onPjk--98 ... 8I1hgtonXE

Regarding a dark version: As 3Di rightfully points out, an apatite is a blue stone, not a dark one. But luckily the theme name is not written in stone, and there will be a dark version accompanying the light one. Changing the main theme color is also going to be a breeze.

I hope the name doesn't change from Apatite to Hepatitis anyway. ;) :lol:

It's a very nice theme, a dark side of it is really welcome.

There is nothing darker than having hepatitis, so it might actually be a suitable name for the dark version! :lol: And thank you!

Here's a peek at how a dark version might end up looking. :)

The dark side of it I can say it looks good, not really my taste though but that's irrelevant, I mean about colors and contrast.
Conclusively I like it, this style. Good work so far. :)

While the theme is closing in on it's Alpha phase, I figured I could share a screenshot of how the polls are shaping up!

The bars self-adjust after how many options you have, and the row does not break on an ordinary computer before you have three-four options.

Also, I might look into if I can make it turn into a small list when one goes over X options, for example ten, so that the options don't take up an excessive amount of space.
