Seriously, for those of us who got lost in the length of this topic, what is "BS"? (Googling didn't help much. :))

I'm guessing Bootstrap (BS) and Font Awesome (FA), Steve.

Thanks all. Hanakin did mention Font Awesome in his post, so I figured that was FA, but "Bootstrap" wasn't mentioned at all in that post. Here are links for others who may not know what these are:

Bootstrap
Font Awesome (apparently works with Bootstrap)

Would it be possible to get a subtle (but imo important) change into 3.1 before RCs?
The searchbox in topics and forumlist is really bugging me.

I made a paint mock up of my idea:

the last time I tested it, we had some class names colliding, so integrating BS into phpBB is not that easy.

@nick i ment couple with the completely new theme only their is a lot that needs to be fixed for backwards compatibility with older themes to just include BS thats why i mentioned adding an option to toggle its inclusion since we can not know if it would not break ppls existing themes due to that exact reason.

@mess that would need to be its own RFC. if you have that coded, open a ticket and pull request. im sure they would approve it fairly easy

+1 Mess but there are still too many inconsistencies in prosilver design. All buttons, inputs and selects should be redesigned like this.

Definitely +1 for Bootstrap and Font Awesome.
Already tried to make my own theme, worked out pretty good, but .alert class was colliding.
