I do hope the code tags aren't green as they are in your example above? That really doesn't fit into Curve, to be honest..

LOL, it's a text editor tool for Windows I believed.

If I were you, I'd make a blue version as the default option, but include that green version for those who either want it for Curve, or have a green theme.

Am'

for the quote is good ? for the code try the green you'll love it.

I had the same opinion as you but the problem is that there's blue everywhere, so I had the idea to change the colors (quote & code)

The orange in the quote is OK, fits in well.
If you could post a full page screenshot of the code block, so I can see how it looks in-context, maybe I could change my mind..? ;)

and this screenshot ?

I was more thinking a picture of an entire thread, so I can see how it really fits into the entire Curve theme, since I don't have time to test your package at this time.

Thanks.
Well, it's not *too* bad, but I still can't say I'm fond of that color.
The actual style is pretty nice though, and as you said it's not too hard to change the colors. :)

As for the package you posted... You shouldn't package mods as rar. You should use zip or tar.gz. Also, it's double packaged.
package-info.xml and all associated files must be placed on the top level of your package.

That is, if you want to submit it to our customization site.

Now for the ones with curved corners. Yes, I know you can do them without images if you only want them in Firefox and Safari/Chrome but this method makes them work in all browsers.

This will look like the second screenshot. You will need to copy the two attached images (quote_ends.png and quote_slices.png) to your default/images/theme folder.

Note that this uses the same styling for the code boxes as the first example. There is no point trying to put rounded corners on code boxes because they usually have scroll bars at the bottom and at the right, which makes them look silly if you try to add rounded corners. The code boxes are best kept simple IMO.

Enjoy.

Yeah, it really depends on what type of blue you use, and how you use it. A blue color like #330099 would of course not fit in, while a lighter, more gray, tone may.

Bloc's quotes are nice, but they wouldn't work for code BBC. Would steal focus.

Bonjour,
Une modification de l'apparence du contenu de la balise code est vraiment une bonne initiative.
J'utilise actuellement la 1.1.13 et j'aurai vraiment aimé savoir si un mod du genre existait.
Du coup je n'ai trouvé que celui ci pour la version 2RC, ce qui ne m'intéresse pas (pour le moment..)
pouvez vous me guider vers un topic ou un mod permettant cela ?
D'avance merci.
