Re: New Admin Style for phpBB 3.3?

I am tracking and not disagreeing that eventually all needs to flow for continuity and easy of development. My main point is still sound. We are still not done with the front-end and its difficult to build them side by side.

However the codebase still needs cleaned-up as well as the UI eventually so to make it easier on ourselves later as its much easier to go from modern compliance to modern compliance then to go from the *beep* we have now to modern compliance. By allowing for the development to move along with framework a its easier to swap down the road to framework b even before 3.3 is final if not then 3.4. Not to mention it will move faster than the front-end as template inheritance is not a thing, *beep* ass back-end code overlap is not a worry, etc...

What I am saying is - "Why invent the wheel twice?"

If we are intent on changing the "framework" for styles then let's try and make life easier for extension developers. Currently there is one "framework" (using the term very loosely) for front facing templates and another for ACP templates

Case in point: since phpBB 3.0 came out almost 10 years ago there has been 1 ACP style submitted.
I agree, but there is no reason why that would need to change, but there are some who would at least like to have the option to give the ACP the same look as the rest of their board.
I agree. Or a different one. Why not?
I'd go for ACP styles to be created/submitted. DavidIQ linked to a phpBB3 ACP style (not anymore available to us) but I remember of those times of phpBB2 where multiple coders faced that argument producing a bunch of nice sexy-ACPs.

The Categories Hierarchy MOD has been the best of. :geek:
