How to change the forum theme.
« on: October 05, 2007, 05:17:09 PM »

I got a PM asking how another user had a different "skin" on the forum, after he'd seen a screenshot.
I realized that there hasn't really been a thread explaining this since the wip thread I made about them.

So here goes for you people that didn't know:
The default theme on the forum, as you probably have seen, is the orange and grey Half-Life Theme,


but we also have the green and grey Opposing Force Theme,


the blue and grey Blue Shift Theme


and the red and black Resident Evil Coldblood Theme (as you might have seen if you looked at that part of the forum)


Update! Introducing the white Aperture (Science) Theme!


How do you go about changing this you ask?
Simple.

  • Press the Profile button, located in the top menu.
  • On the left side menu, you'll see "Look and Layout Preferences", click that.
  • At the top of this page you'll probably see "Forum or Board Default (change)" click that and choose your desired theme.


I would link directly to the page, but several tries have proven that it doesn't work to well.

Agreed.

Possibly... standard STEAM theme? :D

Or some well-known HL mods? SC, BB? TH? :D

As a matter of fact (=P), yes there will be. Look at the first post for an update.

Well, if you give me some suggestions on colours for the css we can look into it.

It's hard when you don't really have anyone to test the theme on =P

Standard HL hud orange, as that's the default, with the CSSguy (not FPS Doug) in the corner where the Lambda ususally is.

Otherwise, mostly standard HL theme.

Possibly a Synergy/SC theme? or Ragonark Arena?

I would suggest a dark-gray or blue background. With the white-on-white there isn't much contrast and things are a bit hard to see.
