Hello all,

Simple Machines Forum project has released a new default theme for all future releases of the 2.0.X line.

This theme has came about as a consultation project with various members of the community who wished SMF took a lighter side on themes.  The new default includes multiple new features that may be updated for 2.1 line, these include:


       
  • Colourforms: User changeable skins to change the theme's colour, this can be turned on or off at will and a default colour can also be set. Available colours are Blue, Pink, Green and Red
  • Custom Logo: You can apply your own custom logo.
  • Favicon: You can define your own shortcut icon.
  • Banner Image: You can set a banner image to go above the template_menu()
  • Navigation Menu Styles: You can set your template_menu() to look like previous default themes of SMF, all four options (Curve, Core, Babylon and Classic YaBB SE) are available.
  • Dropdown menus: Only available in Curve style
  • Menu icons: Always available in Babylon and Classic, optional in Curve, not available in Core
  • Registration Bar: Display a bar across the top of the forum for guests
  • Member Box: Display a box on the BoardIndex to "persuade" new members to post
  • BoardIndex Cells: You can allow for one cell like in the Core theme, or Two like in the Classic YaBB SE, along with larger stat numbers.
  • Rename Child Boards: You can rename the string used to identify Child Boards in public areas. (Admin Areas are not effected)
  • Board Icon Filetype: You can change the filetype that Board icons use
  • Custom Board Icons: You can give each board their own icon. The above setting does apply to Custom Board Icons.
  • RSS Button: Each board can have their own RSS Button
  • Moderator Location: You can adjust where the listed names of moderators appear
  • Moderator Buttons: You can also adjust where the buttons for moderating are (Quote, Modify, Delete, Split etc..)
  • Attachment Alignment: You can place attachments horizontally or vertically from each other
  • Ad Support: You can place an ad without having to install any mods, though support for Sinan's Simple Ad Mod is available.
  • More Display info: You can display icons for topic starters, Locations, Join Dates and direct links for copying and pasting in posts
  • More Moderation Options: You can quick jump posts and ban members directly from their posts
  • Custom Copyright Notice: You can add your own copyright notice after the SMF.
  • Hide Subject Lines: Hide's the subject lines from replies. They will still appear for the first post of a topic.

We hope that you like the new direction we have taken, and hope for further feedback.

Unfortunatley at this time the theme will not work well with RTL languages but this will be fixed for the official release in 2.0.5 release.

As always this topic is not for support, if you find any bugs please, post in Site Comments

Thanks

This theme should be automatically set for anyone who is on a forum for more than 10 hours - as a warning to get a life.
