:icon-rolleyes: Okay. There it is. I see an issue with this one though, that the white makes the "online" banner on the side not visible. Probably because they use white font color for ONLINE.

HAHAHAHA Okay. No for this one! HAHAHA. There are maybe two more I can install. I skipped the orange one because it won't let me change the colors.

Yeah, sorry, it's overwhelming and not enough contrast- I can barely see my submit button.

No problem. That is why we are doing this. :D So I think it is between this one and the default prosilver so far?

hmmm. Doesn't it go full screen?
it's ok. a bit retro. Don't feel strongly either way so probably no, on balance.

This one is called prosilver special edition. I'm not sure why it is special. Okay. I'm going to remove all the other styles, leave the two you like, and then I might play around with colors a bit on the Black theme (that is the name of the one you like). But I'll do that later, I have to go for now. :) I never will understand why Ben made a big deal about changing the style, see how easy it was to switch between them? I even INSTALLED one in the time I was talking to you. LOL

By the way, there will be more people updating their themes to 3.1.6 as time goes on so if something more spectacular comes up we can always switch again. It is really not a huge issue other than having to do some things for the header & menu, but once I know how to do that, it won't be a big deal.

I have to go too, it's near 11.30 and I want to get a comparatively early night! Thanks for putting up with all my indecisiveness. This has been really useful for me.

Sharon, somehow or other I have to see the black and the prosilver side by side; obviously happy to wait if you want to try a few color options first. Screenshots are probably the way to go if I can remember how to do them! But I do really like both...

Okay here we go:

First Black but with the color change that I did today (the way it looks right now)

Then Black with the bright blue bars.

Finally prosilver

Re: test

OK finally: let's say the middle one, for the moment. Many apologies for messing you around. I have a couple of reasons for not having gone this way before; one is that prosilver may be lighter on the eyes. Constant schoolwork on the PC and laptop (we are moving to a virtual learning platform and the vast majority of our work henceforth will be online) is beginning to hurt my eyes.... On the other hand, you have worked hard finding good alternatives, and I don't want to go for something that doesn't chime with the main site design. And people are used to dark. It will also help if my yellow shows up! But, as you say, it's something we can deal with later if necessary.

Okay done. You can delete, move, or archive this thread if you want as it doesn't really fit in with BONES. It just happened to be the forum I was in when I decided to test it. LOL

I'll archive. I want to check whether I can move stuff around properly anyway. :)
