Re: New Style for phpBB 3.3 ?

I didn't know there was a hype for it? I read the blog from a popular and knowledgeable man and I would believe his words over any other random person's. So if you read a blogger who is popular and knowledgeable, then you go and spread his words as an absolute truth? I'm talking about this: "Whatev...

This. So much this. Also I would like to contribute to this theme in any way possible :)
You still have not answered me about IDs.

Do you have the knowledge to provide an answer or were you just following an Internet hype about not using IDs?

Re: New Style for phpBB 3.3 ?

Fixing the current style is a bigger task... What's wrong with it though? I mean, what's wrong with its appearance, colors and layout that needs fixing and changing? Wouldn't it require less time to simplify and improve the DOM and the CSS using more HTML5 and CSS3 while keeping the layout, the col...

Re: New Style for phpBB 3.3 ?

Imo there's no need for an entire new theme and we should simply improve on the current theme. With things like: - HTML5 Elements - Smilies in a dropdown box and/or a WYSIWYG editor - Sprites, SVG icons and SVG forum/topic imageset - Remove CSS @import, organize and improve CSS (less files hopefully...

Re: New Style for phpBB 3.3 ?

I already said the go2top things are probably the only real use of IDs. There can be many unique elements in a template. Usually there are, many. You can have that by using a class as well and not reusing it. What about speed? 1. Speed regarding how fast the browser matches an element. 2. Speed reg...

Re: New Style for phpBB 3.3 ?

Yes please elaborate! 1. You can have unique elements e.g. one overall header, one overall footer, one container for a go2top arrow. 2. They make it faster for the browser to match an element (depending on how they are used and while keeping in mind that CSS selectors are matched by reading them fr...

Re: New Style for phpBB 3.3 ?

What exactly should I elaborate? Just its a better practice to not use ID for elements to style them, instead we should use classes only because classes are reusable. IDs are not. IDs also have a very high specificity which should be avoidable. You said to never use IDs in the markup. The high spec...

Whatever style you make and whenever you make, just never use any id in the markup. It's really useless and has no benefits over classes. Classes ftw.
Please elaborate.

Re: Here is what I think

[...] Because of that interest in forums is going down. [...] I believe that could easily change. Also - call me crazy - I believe that phpBB could compete with WordPress. Because after all it's not so different. Because content is king. Because customers would like to have social features. And cre...

If I want to see statistics - I want to see them in my ACP. I don't have the need to 'show off'.
I want to be able to see how big is the community in which I am participating and how many are its active users.
