Link to the theme

CSS Note:
The "green" color is #339933, if you would prefer a different color, just replace any instance of #339933 with the color you prefer in /style.css

2aces Theme is a poker based theme with a "rail" wrapped around all the "tables" on the site. There are two versions of this theme: - this is the regular SMF format index - this splits all the boards into a separate "table" to make it look like poker tables in a poker room.

The description area is adjustable in the CSS file. This is helpful if you see that your site has a lot of dead space, or needs more space in the description area. To adjust the size of the description cell go to ./justboards/style.css and look for...

   color: #000000;
   background-color: #DDDDDD;
   height: 150px;
   vertical-align: top;
   border: thin solid #CCCCCC;

The line to adjust is the "height" from 150 to whatever looks best on your site. Also note, you will want to use the height of the LARGEST description you have. This will ensure that ALL boards stay in a nice neat row.

I've been waiting for your poker theme :P Awesome work ;)


:D :D :D


Looks like a great theme for my poker site.. but I downloaded the zipped file (, tried to upload it into my SMF 1.1.8 with the following error: "The package you tried to upload either is not a valid package or has become corrupted."

I then deleted the original file, downloaded again and tried once again with the above error.  Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.


It's only for SMF 2.0. While I won't be making it for 1.1.x, you are welcome to take it apart and try to make it work for your site. It's actually pretty easy to make the rails around the board.

At the top of where your board starts I have a table with 6 cells and then 3 more on the bottom.

<tr><td>top left corner</td><td>middle rail</td><td>top right corner</td></tr>
<tr><td>left rail</td><td>
*****start body content******

*****end body content******
</td><td>right rail</td></tr>
<tr><td>bottom left corner</td><td>middle rail</td><td>bottom right corner</td></tr>

And basically you use that to wrap ANY section or page of your forum that you want the rail around. I did not use [code ] above because I didn't add classes or anything so that you can build it as you like.

My apologies KahneFan, I didn't realize the aces theme was designed for 2.0.  While I have very limited knowledge on code, I do have a co-admin who looks after that for me, fortunately!

However, I was just looking for a new poker theme for my forum and I've tried the only other in Themes but didn't like it too much, so.. when I seen yours, I had to have a look at it.  The demo is terrific.. keep up the good work!

Thanks for the prompt reply and the coding, much appreciated.
