I finally got around to putting together the "non-modded" DarkEQ theme. I uploaded it at the phpBB uploads page, but until that goes live, I'll put it up at my site.
I am pretty positive that everything works right with this - I've been using it for a few days on my forum
. The theme you'll download does not have the News mod, and it has a basic (boring) header. One other thing - the font color is changed from the original DarkEQ purple to a lighter color to make it easier to read. The old folks complained about it.
Here's a link to the theme: http://beta.phpbb.com/styles/downloads/ ... ages&cat=3
When the phpBB download goes live I'll be taking the file down and directing people to that link.
The theme is up at phpBB, so please use their link to download the files directly. Thanks!
