    RFC: New Forum Theme - 20080122

    Purpose: Find a theme that is supported in vBulletin 3.7

    Other Information: The current version 3.6 theme is unsupported by its creator. There are no plans to support it in version 3.7. With the eventual need to upgrade vBulletin to version 3.7, we'll need to find a theme that has active development in the vBulletin.org community.

    I have visited the vbulletin.org site and found the six most downloaded themes for the v3.7 beta.

    The themes are Kirsch, Rooq, Visions Blue, Visions Dark, Visions Green and Webber Classic. Samples of each can be seen here.

    I'm going to assume this modification requires input for the entire forum. Polling will close on February 15.

    The monthly community bulletin will announce voting on this. To receive the community bulletin you need to enable "Receive Community Bulletin Newsletters" in your profile options.

    Either of the Visions ones are pleasing to my eye. The others are a bit harsh in one way or another. I voted for visions green, but any of the 3 are fine with me.

    Why not install a few themes and give users a choice?

    Looks like a tie. The 3.7.0 Release Candidate has been released. The final version should be out in a few weeks.

    The 3.7.0 code will be gold next week. I'll be upgrading and modifying the theme to Visions Green as it appears to have less template modifications to the default theme. The forums will go offline next week to facilitate the changes.

    The upgrade seems to have gone well. Fortunately the forum styles remained largely unaltered afterward. I'll be investigating the new features over the next few days and will keep you all updated.
