Title: Babylon Theme Option for v2.01
Post by: Jim Stone on September 26, 2011, 11:53:47 PM

Any chance that the Babylon theme which my users adore will be coded to work with  v2 of simple machines. It is the only thing that I was disappointed with in the conversion. If not, is there any way someone might work on that as a mod?
Thanks!

I'm sorry, Babylon theme is indeed not updated at this time.
We want to try to update Babylon and Classic for 2.0 and make them available as official themes for 2.0 (2.0.1), however that is up to designers' interest and time for doing so. While Classic has found interested people to step up for it (Akyhne is working on it and he has my thanks for that!), Babylon is still an "orphan" at this time.

Thank you for letting us know of your forum need, I will try to see what we can do.

I'm hoping to update Babylon myself with what little free time I have. Give me a couple of weeks and post back. I'll see this topic in my unread replies list to give my self a reminder. :)

I have a nicely customized babylon theme, which has been in place for > 4 yrs. I have a parallel SMF 2 installation in place, but will not move my database over to SMF 2 until I get it looking nearly exactly the same. So any help in getting a babyon theme for 2.0 would be mui welcome. Hopefully, I'll be able to integrate in my old customizations relatively easily.

Thanks!

After fretting about not having Babylon, which our users had 5 yrs experience with, I took the curve theme and mildly customized to bear a similar look. After the switch everyone liked the new, cleaner look and use of color. You may view our customization at http://www.northcountycycleclub.com/smf . I can understand why Babylon wasn't carried forward, although I also feel the pain of someone who had put in heavy customization effort.

That the main reason why I'm not moving from 1.1.x to 2.x.
So, I'm also waing for Babylon 2.x theme. :(

If  that helps you taking any kind of decision: as far as I know nobody is working on it and the last change to the code is 9 months old and it had nothing to to with code itself.

Since also Babylon is BSD-licensed, anyone interested is free (and welcome) to update it and make it available to the community.

Looks good. Which version of curve did you base it off of?
Thanks!

I started with "SMF Default Theme - Curve" which came when we upgraded to version 2.0.2, I believe
