phpBB vector icons - Why are they not added?

Post by RG1 »

Hi, yesterday I added to my forum vector icons for the prosilver template and they work great and look great on all devices.
May I ask why they haven't been officially added yet?
Why does it all take so long ... these are minute issues. Excuse me, I have no idea about the development, I'm just interested. :)

I used vector icons from @Hanakin
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ojktamb40ox2 ... IySya?dl=0

I added them to /styles/prosilver/theme/images

And I changed this .gif

Code: Select all

/* Forum icons & Topic icons */
.global_read						{ background-image: url("./images/announce_read.gif"); }
.global_read_mine					{ background-image: url("./images/announce_read_mine.gif"); }
.global_read_locked					{ background-image: url("./images/announce_read_locked.gif"); }

I would make a guess that apart from maintenance issues the prosilver style is not being developed any further as there is a new phpBB style being developed - although when that will materialise is another question.

Hi, yes I know that a new version of phpBB is coming to be here! Because I was looking at a planned chameleon template and it looks amazing and so much great work that Hanakin does. By the way, you probably don't know when the planned release ?

But .. the current phpBB version is still used quite often, tell me that there is not one person from the development team that implements these fundamental graphic changes (it will not take him more than 2 hours) And another update could be issued with this ( be it icons in vector, online status in vector, contact icons. Simply put, these graphic basics.

But on the other side, if the new version of phpBB is already in an advanced stage .. I understand that there is no point in fixing the old version of phpBB.That can be understood. ;)

If you are referring to phpBB4 then certainly I do not have a clue when it will be released and I am not sure that anyone else knows either.

And that would be two hours away from future development work - and two hours is only your estimate, it could take two days if other problems are discovered.
