I believe this was built into the previous OOP Y3 code that I looked at, so I'm assuming it will be there with this new approach as well.

A little research maybe: http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1242223524

I'm going to take a good look at that!

I agree with you and Globus (in http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1243412914/0#0 )

Removing barriers has to always be the key.

The whole key here is in building a good architecture.

Main Buttons for YaBB 3

Looking at the download page for latest versions of YaBB one sentence seems to catch the eye: No language packs are available specifically for this release!!! The way i see it, one of the major hurdles conserning language packs are that you have to create more than 70 graphic buttons for each language.

Further more - since version 2.0 YaBB has been 'templated' and a lot of eye candy, creative and popular templates has been created - but you'll either have to live with the default buttons - or create another 70+ buttons to match the theme!
What i would like to bring up for discussion here is another, more flexible way to 'generate' the main buttons for YaBB 3 - the CSS way.

Of course i have a modest example of what i'm talking about here:

And my 'danish' attempt to explain the basics here:
