Revert the board style change?

Post by Alfred Don »

I hate the new skin, the last one was a lot better, and the skin selector in the user preferences doesn't work like it did on the last skin, so I can't pick prosilver brown either.

The "old skin" was for an older version of phpBB that is not compatible with the current version's skin format. That said, I recall Rachael tried to find a decent variety of forum skins that can at least try to fill the niche that the styles for the old forum did.

weasel is right - the skin change was part of the upgrade, and we can't revert the upgrade even if we wanted to because the version of php that it requires has long gone out of support and it would open the entire site to too many security issues.

As for being unable to change the skin - try doing that in a new browser. It works fine for me but maybe you're using an older browser or have an addon that is interfering.

No longer an issue--you guys seem to have cleared up the issue in some way, because when I made the thread, the entire forum was on the ne-drdteam skin no matter if I was logged in, in a private window, etc, but now it's back to the dark prosilver theme, and I can freely change it.
