New Theme: Nostalgia
« on: Fri, 20 July 2012, 00:21:11 »
Pining for the look and feel of the Geekhack of old?  Give the "Nostalgia" theme a try!

It looks similar but isn't quite the same. The grays and blacks are too harsh, maybe lighten them up.


I'm not complaining, it's still better than whatever the default was

I matched the hex codes exactly to parts of the old forum (which I still have a static copy of).  What's different is the layout and how/where the SMF default theme uses some of the colors.  It's not exact, by any means, but it should help some people feel more at home.  :)

I feel like there's a lot of wasted space on the sides.  Otherwise A+!

Didn't realize you can change theme, switched to nostalgia but it doesn't feel like the old GH, I think I'm gonna stay on this new theme, all that white on DT messed up everything :)

I think someone changed the default template that these themes inherit from.  I really didn't touch font sizes, except in the menu bar.  Also, Firefox renders things larger than Chrome for some reason.

i would think because the old template has the border around the outside pushing everything more center.

makes it a little busier imop, clashier i guess would be the verbage- but i'm sure it will be settled on what the majority wants.
