Hi all,

Im looking for a new theme, i use since 2016 the redsy, an excepcional theme, but now its a bit outdated.
After search on free themes here on SMF, i was tested on my other forum one good theme, but it is not a full width and the text its to small.
I searched too on the premium themes in 3 or 4 theme makers, but i cant teste is charateristics, in special the performance on pagespeed tools. The redsy my forum its to slow the CLS its >25 (webmastertools was made an warnig about this).
Any sugestions? Paid theme, of course!

Some charecteristicas im looking:

- Give the option to member to change the dark mode or regular mode.
- The child boards must be on columns
- SEO optimized (speed, alt atributs on images, html validation and other important things on this domain)
- The article areas, must be the biggest possíbile (razonable).
- Minimalist to have best improvlemnts on spead on mobile
- And of course, it must be responsive
- My forum runs on 2.0.18 version


Best regards
Portugal

the one that was not full width, you should be able to change the width settings either in the current theme settings or in the css
and for the font size you'd change it in the css

off the top of my head, you could check out the sunrise theme it has a dark and light setting

these don't have dark/light settings but I like
nightbreeze: https://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?lemma=2917
dani: https://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?lemma=2922

as for
QuoteThe child boards must be on columns
there was a mod for this but I can't seem to find it now, don't remember the name...sorry

Easy to do with CSS anyway.

Thanks for your sugestions. They are good themes, ive tested all of your sugestions before and maybe i will contact some designer to have some more particular features.

Thanks all anyway!

you may find more people willing to tweak an existing theme or create a mod (such as subcategories in columns) easier than someone creating a theme from scratch...
either way best of luck
