UCP -> Board preferences -> My board style


I've seen on vBulletin boards where the theme is selectable via a dropdown list at the bottom of every page. Not that I use it often, personally, but that's certainly a convenient location.

Well, I don't know, but I THINK without some modification (which is sounds like jsr doesn't know how to do, not that he couldn't learn how, but is it necessary enough) the location is pretty fixed where it is.

IMO the theme selector's fine where it is. Changing themes will never be an everyday thing (for me, at least).

I have a couple suggestions too:

https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/dvgfx/

https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... finitum_2/

Obviously you'd have to replace some of the graphics but these are nice styles. I like the Black style better than the default, but not as much as either of these.

Currently, it's the phpBB logo; I don't know if you'd prefer to replace that file in that directory path to the FamiTracker logo.

I'll look into that.

I think the current way is fine.

These are only compatible with v3.0 unfortunately.

But I think I'd prefer to stay at one additional theme though, to avoid potential extra work when updating phpBB.
