website theme (not red)

can we get some more theme options?
like yellow, blue, green, purple? black/white grey
?

perhaps upgrading to a better development platform would be a good thing?
(i remember someone saying 'drupal' is limited)

I'd like to see a white on black option (or charcoal grey)

How about blue?

It's blue for me. The header features a blue gradient and a lot of the red text is blue. It's a Stylish theme.

I'd like to see these options as part of the site though, I hear ya on that. But for your own use it's definitely do-able. I was told how, at one point, how to change the color, but I never got around to it.

Long story short, anything's possible with CSS.

+1 (although, considering how fast things move at PA, we likely won't see that any time soon! Blum )

Agreed. But why stop at replacing only the red color with blue? o.O There's a world of possibilities... This is how I set up mine, to better blend in with the rest of my visual preferences (used ABP and Stylish, although Stylish would have been enough):

The reason I blocked those few images is that they had white parts, mainly their edges, which didn't want to play nice with my setup. I could have spent a lot of time to (try and) fix it properly, but I've chosen the easy path. Biggrin Call me lazy, if you must Smile

reminds me of halloween

I don't think blue would be very good because there is already a look alike illegal site that uses a blue scheme (with a gold logo, instead of gray).

And why did you take time to erase your username? we already know its dboki89, or, you've somehow managed to create the mask of dboki89 but when you log in it shows your real username?

thank you

very nice

I was reluctant to use stylish till now. You've convinced me it is worthy, as webmasters are not always ready to listen to users requests. (nice job, for what it is, though)

please tell me how to do the blue thing

oh, haha

right

i don't like the thread layout of the forum so i usually reply to the last post, keeping the format of the thread linear, takes extra thought to do it the other way

too bad there is not options to view differently, but perhaps greasemonkey/chrome et al can help, if only i didn't have short term memory loss

good stuff, all, thanks...

er, any good, best, links for this stuff? gpl fsf and all that?

Halloween? I guess it does a bit... :)

There's a lot less orange (links) usually, and more gray (text), which is easier on the eyes. In this example, there was about as much orange as I ever get. It probably looked more "Halloween-ish" (if you're referring to the FF theme) then how I usually see it.

And why did you take time to erase your username? we already know its @$#*%!?, [...]

Oh, NO, you already know! Shock omg! Shock talk about being psychic, he he Smile

I did it because my *real* username is, in fact, a top secret military encryption algorithm, which sometimes get's displayed as I log on... Either that, or I'm just crazy from time to time Blum

@DBoki [begin military grade encryption]
That is quite possibly the gaudiest color-scheme I have ever seen! Shock

but if it works for you.

I just thought I'd mention GreaseMonkey for those using Firefox (and possibly even Chrome). You can use it to write JavaScripts that change not just the color-scheme of websites but add functionality or alter the way the site is laid out. Granted, it takes a bit more effort, but I suppose it all depends how far you want to take the whole "customizing my personal browsing experience" thing.

Blue

I'd like the theme to be changed to blue.
Only the links to other pages in red.
Maybe a third color for the download buttons.

I like it as it is (red is my favorite color Blum ), although I really wish the width were variable instead of fixed - giant areas of white are annoying, especially when replies are so nested that a single sentence takes up several lines.

Width is changeable via CSS

Just add a custom stylesheet with the following code:

.overall-page
{
max-width:auto;
}
#forum table
{
width:100%;
}

for full screen width, or change auto to something like 1000px or 80% or whatever works for your display if full screen width is a little too much.

Just note that I haven't tested it throughout the site, so there may potentially be things that code will break outside of the forum depending on how the CSS is set up.

I wouldn't know how to do that on a per-site basis (and there's no way I'd make that global).

If you use Firefox: Check out this link

If you use Opera or Chrome I know it can be done, but I'm too strapped for time at work to search out decent links for you.

If you use IE, tough luck, as IE has no way that I know of to do it without using the developer console to add a link to your custom CSS on every page you visit that you want to change, and if you refresh, you'll have to change it again.

Greasemonkey

I've said it before, I'll say it again... Greasemonkey let's you do exactly this type of thing, on a per-site basis. (or try Greasemetal for Chrome).

I figured there was some way to do it, but I'm as dull as the general populace when it comes to web development. Blum

Greasemonkey uses JavaScript,

Greasemonkey uses JavaScript, and winterblood's code is CSS, so how would I force variable width with JS?

Try...

There's a few ways to do it but you could try:

GM_addStyle("[INSERT CSS HERE]");

Beyond that it would seem you'd have to know a little bit of JavaScript and override the CSS classes/properties directly.

Does Firefox's (or any browser's for that matter) custom CSS stylesheets apply to all websites or can you specify which sites to use it on? I've never used them so I have no idea.

If you check out the link I posted above regarding Firefox, it will tell you how to set up custom stylesheets for a site, domain or individual page using Firefox specific CSS rules.
