    Then again.....scribble will make any style look like crud. Let's just wait till Kier get his design finished and judge. I have a very good feeling the design is gonna grow on us and that people will start copying...

        Well in your case, it would be an impressionistic design so that doesn't count

          I doubt it they're modifying the code for the new style (at least, not removing any compatability with the old one).

            there modify the HTML code, so yes you would need to rebuild parts of the new style to correctly use the old one ;D

            gues you dont make many styles do you ;D

            i convert WBB IPB and phpBB styles to vb all the time

            id like to think i know what im talking about

              Of course you modify the HTML, but generally you don't need to modify the PHP unless you are adding new information to the style (i.e. by modifying an SQL statement) which is generally not needed for a simple postbit rearrangement. However, I don't know if the postbit set of template is affected by any other templates. Ideally it shouldn't be, but I don't know. In theory, you should be able to take the old postbit and replace it with the new one, but that all depends on how the postbit is implemented.

                  I think they should just include a text file of the default postbit in the distro for those who don't like the new top postbit.

                    That apprent VB3 style is what I created three years ago!

                    My concept behind it was to eliminate the wasted space by the column containing the user details, since my site layout at the time was a three column approach (have since redesigned to only two columns).

                    I actually redid 100% from scratch every single template in VB2 to achieve my needs (including integration with the GUI engine I wrote that handles the look&feel of my entire site). It ended up being several months of work but the result was a look & feel that was completely integrated with the rest of our site - everything from private messaging to threads to searching to profile forms/etc.

                      I must say, considering your site's subject, I really like your forum template. It seems a little easier on the eye and lays everything out smoother. There seems to be less clutter is what I am trying to say. Good work.

                        Try not to look at it for too long or you will turn into salt. And not the kind that is used for passwords.
                        Chen, your rendition is nicer than Kier's.

                          We can already discern the possible reaction to the new style ... be prepared for the aesthetic backlash

                          Personally, I like it ... saves horizontal real estate, especially for those of us that still use sidebars, content columns and left menus...

                            I like it but will my users do so?

                            Making the postbit look like this (vb pre gamma templates set a.k.a vbpgts) is 5 minutes work but i want to use my vB straight out of the box without editing it.
                            That's the end of that!

                              i said modify showthread.php's TEMPLATE nothing about modifing the file.....


                              however like i said to redo the "postbit" template would reqire that you redo other templates to makt it work correctly

                                I do hope there is an option. I create my sites at a fixed resolution, ie 580 wide so it is compatible on 800x600.

                                There is no need for excessive space for a postbit.

                                Besides that, im sure ill be happy.

                                PS- Kier, do you like onenote?
