Its ABOUT TIME.. Thank you Ian Graves! It would be great to find out why he held out this long before letting anyone port it.

He said something about people offering to port it and making a pig's ear of it.

My port is around 75% done (has been since before christmas, Ian has seen it and approves:), but I got swamped by RL so it's been slightly delayed. I hope to finish it this month.

I run a major internet discussion board. We recently changed service providers, relocated our forum, and upgraded to phpBB Version 3.0

We used Charcoal2 on the old forum. We are really looking forward to this being completed.

Thanks,

KF

All the people that wanted to port the style and he didn't like any of them. That had to be a case of just being to picky. Its not THAT hard to port a style its just time consuming as you've found out..

Right, update.
By my reckoning I'm around 95% done, but had stopped working on it due to workload at my dayjob. Next step is to get Ian to look it over and help me find the last 5%

Thanks for your hard work on this theme. We have about 18,000 members on our forum and we really enjoyed using the board with the charcoal theme.

Make that 98%. It looks right on FF and Safari, but IE still messes up a few things. Thanks for your patience, shouldn't be long now.

No change, I don't have IE at work (Mac) or at home (Linux), and don't really know how to bend the CSS spec to satisfy IE in the first place.

Howdy

Does that mean you've given up, or are you still working on it?

Cheers

Sorry for the late reply, I was at a festival last week. No change in status ATM, but I have a windows at home now, so I'll be tinkering with the theme as time allows. Getting it right is probably a matter of a dozen changes in the css, but figuring out the precisely right ones is nontrivial.

Thanks for your patience, I promise I'll try to give this project more time (also because I want to relaunch my own site before year's end on phpBB3)

I am REALLY interested in this - PLEASE do what you can.
I, too, emailed 'Ian', can't imagine using anything else.

Thanks!
