So, after saying I was going to do it for forever, I finally went ahead and put in a new forum theme. Go check it out.

A brief list of new stuff:

  • Shiny. Very, very shiny. I like. If you don’t and want it the old way, go into your User Control Panel->Board Preferences and change “My board style” back to Avalon Green.
  • New forums for Monks. Instead of setting up a separate forum entirely for World of Monkcraft, I’m just pointing them over here. I hear they’ve got booze!
  • Individual RSS feed for each subforum.
  • Ranks for posters: Honored/Revered/Exalted (because I’m boring).
  • You can now change your language/timezone from British/GMT and it won’t break things! Yay!

I still might trim the header length/width down a bit (I forget not everyone has a super-high-res monitor sometimes). If there’s anything else you’d like to see or any comments, let me know.

For my forum-ites…

Haven’t been jumping into discussions on the forums much (which broke 7k posts a while ago, looks like) because, well, I’ve been lazy and haven’t been checking for new posts every day :) Mucking around with some things today, and I noticed that phpBB has a “post feed” option. I’ve enabled it now- see if it works for you and helps you keep track of things better. Link:

http://fluiddruid.net/forum/feed.php (or just click the RSS icon in your browser’s address bar)

(This is just an “all posts” feed for testing; I’ll look at configuring options and stuff later, if it needs it.)
