Why donít we have a sleek skin like Abandoniaís Forum? Weíre an active community, so we should have our own logo, colors, and skin. If the Adminís want to skin the forum, I can help. Iíve ran many forums in the past, plus I still have the code for many different skins.

Here's one of my old forums, if you like the skin, I'll give you the code:

We have a unique forum skin; just switch it to 'Reloaded' (not 'Reloaded pro').
Problem is that it's a bit bugged since the update :D

I for one would love to see those bugs fixed :D
The Reloaded skin is so much more warm and cozy than the default blue monstrosity.

Me too.  ^_^

By the way, how can I get back to the blue monstrosity? It seems that my skin box is now text: "IP.Board Pro ---- Abandonia Reloaded Pro ". :D

I think deleting the cookies would reset to default, haven't tested just now.

I have a little problem  :D

When I'm logged out I see the new blue layout, when I log in I see the old AR layout but it's not working properly.
All is out of place and many pictures aren't displayed, I can't browse smilies for example.
Could you please reset my options? Old AR layout please ^_^

The 'new blue' layout is the default one. The old AR layout is still bugged due to the forum update.
Your current settings are for the old AR skin. I'll assume you prefer a working skin to a pretty one :D

Alright now?

Ok, now it works. Thanks :D
I think the problem with old layout could be solved looking into templates and css.
Old skin can't see new features, probably what you need is an adaptation of the old one.
I would like to offer my help but you know I am a bit busy with AB now ^_^

Try firebug, you can analyse every part of the forum and do real time tests.

You're talking about this?
Anyway, I haven't a clue how this stuff works.

As Doubler said, our old red skin is buggy since the upgrade.  It would be great to see it fixed, so we can get rid of this blue monstrosity.   ^_^

Firebug seem to be for Firefox users, but Firebug Lite is suitable for IE, Opera and Safari.  It will take a while to learn how it works though, cos I don't have a clue either.  Thanks David.   :D

Well guys it's really easy, I've learned it in few hours.
Once installed you'll have to push on the "bug" ^_^ (bottom right of the browser), after that you'll see few functions.
"Analyse" button is important, click on it and then move the mouse on the part of the forum you would like to analyse and click on it.
You'll see part of the html code and css, that function is also useful if you need to find the name of an icon you want to change...
Example:
I'm analyzing the big image on the top left "INVISION power board":
I know that it's called logo4.gif (in this way you'll easily find the path into admin templates) and from here I can modify that picture adding a temporary image to see a possible result.
This is a test, you won't really change the picture but you can do many tests :D
