Question about new style

Post by harmlessgoat22 »

I know that the new style is not going to be released or reveiled until gold release of phpBB3, but I have a question for those who have seen it (dev team). I am not attempting to draw a picture in my head of what it would look like by this question, but whether I will have to make substantial changes to my style...

I would probably prefer to base my main style off of the new one that has yet to be released, but I already have made a stylesheet and images for my style. I was wondering. Does the new style use the same general images and style classes as subSilver in phpbb3? Or will I have to do many changes and make tons of new images to get my style adapted to the new one.

Please note, this is a question so I will know if I have lots of work ahead of me or not, not so that I can ruin the suprise of the style.

There is some work ahead of you. The new style is not an upgrade of subsilver but was written from scratch. This includes smarter CSS naming, new colours, new images, and in many parts a different layout. There will still be a sense of familiarity as it is designed by the same person, but that's about it. Remember that we will also include subsilver2 (this style) in the final release.

The layout and stuff is going to be totally different? So you won't use the topic icons such as Announcement, sticky, stuff like that?

Keep in mind, if telling me this is going to give away anything substantial, don't tell me.

Not sure where exactly again, but it has been said often that the final design is compleatly different in everything, be it CSS images etc.. It has nothing in comon with the design you see here atm.

Hahahaha, if that was the secret style, I'd be forced to kill someone ;), preferably subBlue who would have made it. But, thankfully, that isn't the secret style, right???????????

Oh, I'd be so mad if that was the style...

EDIT: oh, haha, april fools :D
