Forum display style / work safe and low bandwidth

Postby manarak » 07 May 2011, 07:47 •  [Post 1]

Dear Members,

for some of you the graphic headbanner is a bit "too much" when viewing the forum from work.

I've added 2 more display styles that are totally neutral.

You can change the display style of the forum by going to:

"user control panel"
"board preferences"

there is a line that reads "My board style" and the current value is we_clearblue
change that to another style (prosilver, subsilver2)to display the forum in a neutral style.

another bonus is that the the alternate styles also show the pictures the old way, i.e. using thumbnails, which should come in handy if you are in the LOS with a crappy internet connection.

Just noticed 2 glitches in the new display styles.

1. The picture display in the subsilver and prosilver modes still reverts to thumbnail display.
2. The latest thread posted in doesn't show.

But regardless of that, thank you, it'll be safer to surf from work. :)

yep, the changes are only in the main template

besides, I think thumbnails are better for the work-safe template

latest threads was a bitch to put into the main template, so I'll leave it as is.
