Cosmetic Updates Available for the forum?
« on: July 23, 2019, 10:17:29 AM »
This is my first post. Well, actually I did another first post but, alas, I don't see it anywheres.

I am an admin on a simple machines forum for women. We have about 800 members and it used to be a very active site. Even though the subject is still very relevant, the activity has died way down.

I'd like to freshen up the look of our site. Is there more I can do besides change the colors? Can we add the ability to "like" after the posts?

I would change software but we have a library here that has taken us 10 years to build up and I don't want to lose it. Thanks.

you can add all sorts of features -- look on the mod site -=-https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/

you can also change the theme (which is more than just changing colors, in some cases -- look on the theme site -=-https://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

You should get themes from the theme site or if you know a little CSS you can customise it yourself or pay someone to just the way  you like it. I would try Upwork for freelance stuff like that though
