[Tutorial] How To Change The Forum Theme!
« on: April 14, 2013, 11:24:19 PM »
As you may or may not know, the shoutbox has been a mess. Dark blue text on a solid black background. Yellow text on a white background. Ugly stuff.

There is a way to make this not so much of a problem.

Here's how:

1. Click "Profile".
Spoiler for Hidden Content:

2. Hover over "Modify Profile" with your cursor, then click "Look and Layout".
Spoiler for Hidden Content:

3. Beside "Current Theme:", it should say what theme you currently have on (probably "Forum or Board Default". Next to that, it will say "(Change)". Click it.
Spoiler for Hidden Content:

From here, there are a list of options you can choose from. All with a preview.

I'm using "SMF Default Theme - Curve", and would highly recommend it! :)

Hope this helped guys! :)

Being more of a dark and gloomy Poe kind of guy, I keep mine on the Dark Curve I believe it's called.

Core is my favorite. Seems like it is the closest to the original forums as well.

I had already figured out how to change the theme, but I didn't like the default one either.

Now if I could only figure out how to increase the text size 1 step I wouldn't have to squint.  :)
