New Theme: Angel Fall First
« on: June 01, 2009, 10:11:08 PM »
Kick me if you like, but found a theme on random inspiration searching and loaded it up. I liked it enough to port it to the main citadel.

It is called "Angel Fall First" and you can change your theme to it in your forum profile.

Profile -> Modify Profile -> Look and Layout

There will be a "Current Theme" label, the name of your current theme (probably Citadel 3.0) and then the (Change) link. Click there to change it. Browse for Angel Fall First and the entire site will update.

Go there and follow same thing to change it back.

If you find other themes you like, it only took me about 2 hours to port it over so would be happy to customize. Main issue is needing a solid starting point.

Drackler, send me that link again.

Yes, some of the standard graphics are ugly, but can't do it all in one night and that white shag around the icons is a pain in the but.

Nice! The book picture is too big and distracting; and the background of the text boxes looks silly. Otherwise a great dark theme for the Citadel!


Update: there's still quite a lot of pictures and elements featuring a lot of white... that could be amended to decrease the striking contrasts, though I realize that is a long-term process of adjusting the template. Still a good one.

Do not correct me, I know I am wrong.

I like it :up:...  It kinda reminds me of the old tanish theme, but with a chance to be quite prittyer...

Not sure when I will get around to the white, maybe Saturday. Have to do it once and then it should be usable on any dark theme we come up with.

Will mess with the top graphic a little more too. Wasn't sure how much to change it from the original but I don't like large headings either.
