I like how the curve theme looks so elegant in any color you apply to it (in the right way ofc) and still looks pretty custom :D

Yes, it's a tribute to the fundamental balance of the original. Those were based on simple filters mass applied to the entire theme (desaturation for PoD, inversion for CC and invert-lightness/keep-colour for BS). I did it that way because Bloc hasn't released full PSD's to the team yet and I just wanted to have some fun without it becoming a major undertaking, and those combinations worked best. Of course I still had to do some custom icons, plus the css for link colours, etc.

Is it me or the logo is a fresh new? Seems to me like it wasn't so slick-drop-shadowed 1 hour ago? ;-)

It's a new one. Bloc has been playing with Photoshop. :D

I don't like style of the quote and code

please improve it

How? If you think it can be made better please tell us how you think it could.

After playing around a bit with the quote style in Opera's Developer Tools, I think I'm leaning towards no borders or bottom border only, and in that case, possibly with a slightly softer colour than black...

See, that's useful feedback, because you've suggested how you'd improve it. Just saying someone doesn't like it without saying what they'd change isn't actually so helpful.

I can see where you're coming from, though personally I'm not sure I'd change it.

A top and bottom border is good for nested quotes as it gives more definition, but I agree about softening the black slightly. I think #7D808F would be right. It looks good on my local host.

Just wondering, when RC2 gets publicly released, will it still say this when downloading it??

I suspect it will. It is, after all, a release candidate, not a final release.

It probably will. That's a standard warning for any non-Final builds. I'm going to be running RC2 live myself though, along with a lot of other people. The main drawback is that when upgrading to Final it will not be a simple patch but a full upgrade pack. I can live with that though.

Ohh, OK.  Well, I can see things coming together here at SMF with this new version installed.  However, the BBC Editor and Smileys are missing when posting, in case this was accidentally missed somehow.

They work for me. Are you using the BBC editor or the WYSIWYG editor?

I will probably choose a colour which accepts shorthand hex notation for my own Curve-based theme, but #7D808F does look pretty good in this colour scheme.

On my monitor, the background colours of nested quotes are different enough to work well without borders, and at least the top border, where the quote header gives additional separation, should be perfectly safe to remove in that regard.

Hmm. Don't like it without the top borders, myself. I can't see that shorthand notation matters either. I'd just pick a colour that looks good.

Hello all,

Is the Curve theme meant to show this:



Or is it a bug?



I am using Internet Explorer 7, on Windows Vista.

IE7 bug by the look of it. Personally I haven't checked the latest builds on IE7 yet.

Not bad. Might be onto something there.
