Area 51 & phpBB3

Post by Captain Kirk »

I am just wondering, is the layout of the beta1 & this Area 51 Forum going to be anywhere close to the final layout of phpBB3?

No. From whats been said, it's a completley different style, and is REALLY cool.

Umm, not quite. As far as I know, the style you see here will come with the final release. But there will also be a completely new and as of yet unreleased, secret style in the final release.

so a different style isn't just a different colourscheme? Interesting, I hadn't thought the layout was changing. Now I'm more excited 8O

Erm.. Well, we're in a realm of confusing terms here, i.e. templates, skins, styles, color schemes, etc. (basically, all stuf that control the way the board looks, but not necessarily in the same way).

I think that the new secret "style" (I don't have an Olympus install at hand to check, but I think that term is also used in the ACP for stuff basically controlled by CSS - colours, fonts, etc.) is a completely new template, although that might just be because I've always assumed as much.

Style is the term for the three components imageset, theme and template. The imageset is holding a set of the images used, a theme are the CSS and the template consist of the .html files. So, the new style will have all three components. ;)

Hmm, I hadn't heard of a new secret theme before. It just adds to the anticipation though. The tensions mounts. The plot thickens. :mrgreen:
