Good work! this is pretty sexy-looking, design-wise. Can we dress it up with our Slim graphics?

Another crack like that and the moderators will have you banned. Shocked I'll talk to them and see if they'll let you stay...

This is a package that just appeared, and funnier still, it seems to alternate between two completely different layouts!! I've seen where I can change "styles", and where I can tweak a style, but only read a brief comment about modding a site, and I don't know what that means.

PHPBB has a site where things are discussed, but right now I can't tell you how much is possible.

pretty sure the Ron Sexsmith BB uses a phpBB package, so I bet we can personalize it w/ a SV look...

I read a lot of posts and saw a cutom logo here and there, but I never found anything about how to mod a site like we might want to mod it. But of course it can be done.

About style/look modification to your forum:

Try looking at some of the freely available template downloads from: http://www.phpbbhacks.com/

The demo site allows you to see what they look like before downloading and installing them: http://www.phpbbhacks.com/templatesdemo/

This assumes your hosting provider allows modifications of this type to your phpBB forum?

They also offer a collection of graphics that can be used, and have modification tutorials in their forums. They obviously aren't SVSC specific, but they might at least get you closer to the style you're looking to achieve without looking like the standard subSilver forum site. From there you could use your PHP script language skills to tweak the template to your liking. Wink

I'm looking at the phpbb hack site now. maybe tonight I can pop a logo up there if GB will play along.

One nice thing is the lettering is already blue and orange like my site.
