Quote from: noquiexis on October 19, 2021, 09:22:59 PMI am aware that the 2.0.x themes are incompatible with 2.1.x forum. I was asking if someone who regularly does theme coding could write a theme for 2.1.x that would mimic the 2.0.18 "default" and "Core" themes.

The "Wide A Responsive Theme" was completely messed up. Luckily I only clicked on the "Preview this theme" buttons to look at all three.

Quote from: noquiexis on October 21, 2021, 02:36:06 AMIf the SMF development team continues to support and improve the 2.0.x line, then it becomes a simple choice of whether or not to upgrade to 2.1.x. My guess is that 2.0.x will no longer be improved, but I could be wrong about that.
QuoteSooner or later, someone is going to have to find a way to bring the 2.0.x database up to speed with 2.1.x so that existing forums can make the upgrade.
