Ok so if you have been following this thread or at least read the last post you will know i have been having problems with the styles the forum uses.

Basically, this forum runs on a premium style i have to buy and customise to make the forum look different from other forums and hopefully stand out from the rest. (well that's the idea anyway :mrgreen: )

Because you pay for a premium style you get regular updates to keep the style compatible with any updates to the forum software, however for some unknown reason the author of the styles we use has abandoned it and removed them from sale this also means no updates or support for these styles. :shock:

This has left me with no option but to look for another style to use on the forum and i think i have found one that will do. :D

It is called FLATBOOTS
Flatboots-phpBB3-Community-Forum-Theme.jpg
Doesn't look much like the one we use now but i will do a few alterations to get it close to what i hope will work for TduDT. :ugeek:

I have chosen this design because it comes from a reliable sauce and is regularly updated with a support forum. :D

The downside is most of the free extensions i have installed won't work with this theme so along with the price of the theme i will also have to buy any extensions i need to add extra features to the forum. The good side to this is they should all work and be regularly updated. :)

I've been working on the new style over the past few weeks testing things out and seeing what will work and what we may have to lose out on or make a compromise.

I am hoping to get it up and running soon but it will depend on what problems i come up against so no date yet. ;)

More to follow. :tdudt:

As long as there is a similar dark mode then it is fine by me ;)
