Title: Looking for a great theme
Post by: ghulst on October 07, 2021, 06:10:07 AM
I would love to restyle a forum that I have inherited. However, I am not a GUI programmer. I did find the COMET theme at SMF Ticks (https://smftricks.com/index.php?action=store;sa=view&id=43). Unfortunately, that site seems to have not seen much action since halfway 2020.

Do you have any tips on where to check for a theme that will work with 2.0.18 and that hopefully can transfer to 2.1 later?

Requirements? Not that much. I would just like it to have a modern and light feel with a banner-style hero area on the top. If there is a setup where it would allow us to have a page with news somewhere outside of the forum, that would be awesome.

Themes on my site are still updated and receiving support.

You can also find a lot of themes here in the theme site, you can apply a filter to search for themes in the 2.0.x version only too. I'd recommend to run those that say are working with at least SMF 2.0.14

Thanks for the reply Diego. I really do like the Comet theme you made. I'll send you a message.

Are any of your themes for smf 2.1?  I looked around on your forum but don't see where it shows what smf version they are for. I assume they are mostly 2.0?

No 2.1 at the moment, waiting for final release.
Although I'm working on some free 2.1 themes but since it's already mid december, might take a while as I'm only working on the first one atm.
