Dark forum style/colorscheme?

Postby jankusanagi » Jun 4th, '12, 01:10

I've noticed that there's only a single theme in the Board Preferences: prosilver

If possible, I'd appreciate having at least one dark color scheme there, as my eyes get quite tired with this "white everywhere" themes. I guess the default phpbb comes with several themes by default. If not, I could investigate how to create such a theme and provide it myself ;)

Thanks!

Well, for those who really like another theme, there is stuff like https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/stylish/ which allows you to use custom CSS for any website you want, and some readily available themes for popular sites. Even for phpbb: http://userstyles.org/styles/4407/dark- ... ilver-site

Took 5 seconds to search that one including typing and clicking the first result ...
