subSilver theme not part of 3.1?

Post by Seraphic » Tue Oct 28, 2014 10:04 pm

My 3.0.12 phpbb forum has a custom theme I made based off of the subSilver theme. I downloaded phpbb 3.1 as I wanted to do a fresh install and update that theme for 3.1, but I noticed that subSilver is gone and now there is only ProSilver?

There have been a couple of years of debate on the Area51 development site about this. It was dropped as it was old design and architecture. However a lookalike version will be available as an addon style I believe.

Thanks for the reply.

Do you by chance know the name of the "look-a-like" theme, when it will be released and where to look to download it?

3.1 only came out a couple of hours ago. Some things will just take a bit of time to be released. There's no huge rush to update 'now'. I know the style exists and I think it's called subsilver[something] but I don't know when it'll be out. Approved styles will be in the styles database when they're ready.

The same subsilver2 that was there in 3.0 is still being maintained by the Development Team for 3.1, it is simply no longer shipped by default with phpBB. Instead, it will be available from the Styles Database soon. You can also find it here https://download.phpbb.com/pub/release/3.1/3.1.0/

Subsilver for 3.1 is available as separate download: https://download.phpbb.com/pub/release/ ... 3.1.0-RC3/ (scroll to end of page)
I advice against using it though. It works fine with 3.1, but is missing many 3.1 features and unsupported.
there's another thread worth reading here ;)

Does subsilver3 support all the features of 3.1 and will also be usable in the future with 3.2 and so on?

subsilver3 for 3.1 does not exist yet. subsilver for 3.1 that is available as a separate download , does not support all the new features from what I have seen posted about it.

I see. But it sounds like the current subSilver2 for 3.1 will be phased out in 3.2 for sure nor does it support all the features of 3.1. As such, sounds like it might not even be worth using. But if subSilver3 will support all the features of 3.1 and be supported in 3.2 sounds like a good trade since it keeps the feel of the original theme.

there is no subsilver3 for 3.1 yet.

the author of that style will have to convert it to work with 3.1

it currently works with 3.0 and is not compatible.

if and when the author converts it over you will be able to install and use it.

we have no idea what the changes in 3.2 are going to be so it may or may not work at all.

however, I assume that 3.2 won't be so different that prosilver based styles will not work.

remember subsilver3 is a prosilver based style made to look like subsilver2 but it is not subsilver2 based.
