For the time being, I'm opening up the MSPA Classic Theme for you guys to use.
By going to General Settings on your settings page or by using the drop down menu at the bottom of the page, you can select MSPA Classic and start taking a look at the new theme.
It's not finished, there's still some style stuff and some other things in there that I'm working on.
Most notably is that the version on the live server doesn't have the changes to the standard posting form (new color palette, background color selector, a few other goodies I haven't announced yet) and the new search page is not in place.
Some changes you will notice:
- Quoted posts are different and no longer italicized
- Link to MSPA at the top of the forum
- Images no longer resize, and post containers resize to fit oversize images (this means don't abuse this feature with huge images)
- Jailed users have an avatar to indicate they are jailed
- Infractions now have a large graphic to indicated that the user was infracted for the post.
These last two were designed by Michael, and are awesome.
It should be noted that I've turned on the little red and yellow cards for all themes as well, so you will see those below the posts next to the report button, with a link to the infraction details.
Let me know what you think, if you love it, hate it, find problems with it, etc.
EDIT: I forgot to mention, this will eventually become the forum default. I will be leaving the current main theme here until I build out some other color themes to go with this one, but all others moving forward will be built as child themes of this one. That's so updates and code changes don't have to be done on tons of themes. The current default theme will become obsolete and will be removed when there's a dark variant of the new theme.
