phpbb default style re-design

Post by Neuropass »

I think it's about time to have a modern default template. A template that will work on mobile as well as be html5 and CSS3 based... :ugeek:

Big thumbs up for this. Also to have things ordered correctly, such as CSS at the top of the header, and any javascript loading asynchronously in the footer instead of the header if possible?

+1 for a new modern style which authors can use as a base.
With TWIG implemented in 3.1 it would be awesome if the style could use the TWIG template syntax.

+1 It would be nice for phpbb to move away from subblue's work finally and catch up to modern stuff.

I'd like to also suggest fully commenting the CSS file(s.)

It can be terse/succinct, but should be full commenting, not just a comment here and there.

Thanks for considering this!

We need a theme that is design to work properly on all devices not just one thats hacked to be responsive.
Each device should have its own experience tailored to take advantage of the use ability of each device.

3.1 does not even address this as it would require a complete redesign with a mobile first approach.

3.1's prosilver theme is greatly improved, I don't think it's necessary to rebuild everything from scratch, I quite like prosilver, and it can continue to be improved.

negative its a code nightmare. design wise whatever I hold judgement here on why prosilvers design suxs but it needs recreated from scratch from a code standpoint and its in the works as Mess has pointed out its just a massive task. However it will not happen until 3.2

You are correct though 3.1 is a vast step in the right direction from 3.0 which is 7yrs old

I agree with this idea.
And I would simplify the new style as much as possible. Less images (or none at all) and simplified templates/stylesheets.
This would make much more people contribute their own styles.

The new style looks as bad, with all of the wasted padding on the sides, as the style here...a step in the wrong direction, imho.
