Re: ICONS - How to handle SVG explained

Thing about SVG sprites is they don't work with all browsers, entire sprite needs to be inserted into DOM, so icons aren't cached and sprite building process isn't user friendly. There are more downsides to using sprites than upsides. But I've got a solution :) [shameless plug start] I've been worki...

Re: phpBB 3.2.0-RC1 prosilver template with funny repeats

Can you test loading timeline on your forum? Chec...

Re: Here is what I think

Re: phpBB 3.2.0-b2 released

Thanks, is this folder destined not to be changed by any extension or so on? To last forever as it is? Its basically a main parent style, parent of any installed style. That particular template doesn't depend on any other parts of style, placing it in "all" directory makes it usable for any style. ...

Re: 3.2 style inheritance

List of changes isn't really needed. Get old version, get new version, compare directories with diff tool like FileMerge or WinMerge.

Re: [Define New Theme] 8. Utilize Font Awesome icons where icons are needed to simplify server requests.

Minor bug caused by changes in icons: icon on left side of "Post awaiting approval" inside messages is gone, but padding is still there.

Re: [Define New Theme] 8. Utilize Font Awesome icons where icons are needed to simplify server requests.

Re: [Define New Theme] 8. Utilize Font Awesome icons where icons are needed to simplify server requests.

Other points for SVG icons: You can use multiple colors and some other stuff They render identically in all browsers on all operating systems. Easy to customize In my opinion rendering differences is main reason why fonts suck. Browsers render fonts using different aliasing techniques on different o...
