Forum lay out style

Post by Allard »

The content of our forum may not have changed, but the lay out style might confuse you a bit.
So here is a very short tutorial to change the lay out style, which may aid you in increasing the readability of the forum.

> Click on your user name at the top
> Cliick on USER CONTROL PANEL
> Select the tab BOARD PREFERENCES
> at MY BOARD STYLE pick one the options
the bottom two will be most like what you are used to on the old forum.

This might be so basic it does not need pointing out for most of you, but some might not figure this out so easily or be aware of the possibility.
Anything that helps the forum is worth effort, also we can simple redirect users to this thread should the need arise in the future.

I've updated all the styles to use the banner image. There's no way I can see to change the image through phpBB3 itself as far as I can see so it'll be down to me to update it from this point on.

We've gone back in time to the 2013 forum banner, reworked for the bigger layouts.
And I've applied it to every theme except "Chrimbo" - all using the one image so it'll be easier to update from now on.

A new banner for March! It's much trickier with the new styles but I think I've wrangled them into control.
Please enjoy the new look to the forum. (You may need to force refresh with SHIFT-F5 to see it).
