Title: Themes - Do you want them?
Post by: Rasta Nick on April 04, 2008, 02:14:12 PM
There will be a limited number of themes initially (I will make the time to add more)... and I am not certain how all the other features will work once a member changes a theme but I will beta test first before implementing anything and will troubleshoot any problems that may arise.

Thank You Nya, for your continuing, positive, contributions towards this web site.

The Mayan culture is quite interesting. Although, as usual, I do not get much time to study.

Having themes, or skins for the forum could be interesting too .. although I suspect that if only 2 people vote I will not bother lol ;-)

I love the colors, but some people don't.

Don't break the bank doing it, but some people would probably do better with a soothing violet-blue or maybe green. (hehe)

Bless up, Ras Nick.
Love the forum.

my kids pay out on me for my reasoning on Nicks addiction
its true I do spend way to much time here

I like the idea of a lightish-darkish green....

Hmm 12 votes - lol ok well I will test some themes next week. Not sure what day yet tho.

Ok I have had a serious look at adding themes ....It is possible (i knew that before) but it is going to be tricky. As I am sure you are aware there are many modifications to the core code of the forum. 48 different ones to be precise. If I install a new theme none of the modifications will work so I will need to install them manually into the new theme. Bottom line is each new theme will take several hours to install and test. I am not sure exactly how many hours per theme at present but I would guess (with testing) each theme would be a days work. The forum would have to be offline for a short period when the testing phase started.

I may well install one theme to see exactly how long the process is going to take but since there were only 12 votes in total I am wondering whether I should proceed or not since it appears most of the members don't really care whether I do this or not.

Input welcome.

I am sorry for the delay in testing and implementing themes. Unfortunately I have been ill and unable to make the time. I am on the mend now so will attend to it as soon as possible.

Irie Nick,

Apologies are hardly needed from you brother,it doesn't seem that many people are too bothered one way or the other about themes,and if it brings you unnecessary aggro why bring more work on yerself? As the old saying goes if its not broken dont fix it! Then,I am only one opinion,give it another while to see what others think,maybe people have not noticed this post yet..

Thanks for the site and the work you do,
Jah love
B

Greetings,

The themes have still not been forgotten but are proving slightly trickier than I had first hoped. As is making the time to implement them.

As some of you are aware I have quite a bit going on in I life at present and my time to 'develop' here may be quite limited over the next few weeks or maybe even months. Life is full of changes though so nothing that has not yet come to pass is cast in stone.

I would also like to take this opportunity to warn you that there is a planned server move sometime in the next couple of months. I am not entirely sure of the exact date and will advise when I know but THERE WILL BE SOME DOWNTIME!

I'd like to thank all the members who have offered I guidance and support, on here, facebook, msn, myspace etc etc lol :-)

May you all fulljoy an ippreciate all the moments that your journey brings
Nick

Irie Brudda B,

Although my apologies are not really required I feel it doesn't hurt to let people know what is happening. Themes are going to be a lot of work and the level of interest is very low, yet there is some interest so I will make the time to 'try'. Ironically if everybody was screaming for themes I would not be able to move faster than I am :-)

Thank you for your opinion on the matter .. as you say maybe others will have opinions too.

May you and your family have a beautiful day.

Thank you all for your continued support. May 2009 bring you all that you hope for.

One Love

I am a self employed computer engineer. I have 2 children, one still a baby. My partner has two other children as well and we have another on the way. So what with 4 children and one on the way it makes it difficult for me to find time for all I could do. I love my life tho and as long as I have air in my lungs everything is always good. :)
