The number of themes we provide is probably dependent on the package size.  You don't want to make it too large due to image files.  If we find a cross-browser way to make button images without text so they can be re-used with different templates and languages (text overlayed), that could help down the road.

I would think an "accessbility" version (like the windows theme that makes things larger, higher contrast), a mobile template, and one or two "fancy" (but drastically different) templates would be ideal.

how is the 2.5.2 template looking now?

I think it looks great!  Smiley

To those of you who are designing YaBB's next templates, I hope you'll keep in mind that admins currently using YaBB will probably want to stay with what they use. I hope this will be a consideration.

Personally, our forum pretty much mirrors this forum because happily for me, the chosen colors make everything easy to read.

I presume that colors won't be a particular concern, however, since admins should be able to change any given template's colors to those they choose.

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

The probs with the 2.5AE template is simply ugliness - Color changing in the CSS is probably the easiest way of doing it.
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

YaBB 2.5AE shipped with just two templates - but a lot of the ugh-ness of the 2.5 template can be mitigated by changing the color scheme in the CSS.
The 2.1 template is missing a lot of the current functionality. So I'd suggest that if we choose 3 templates to ship and if 2.1 is one of them then the 2.1 has to be brought up to current functionality.


for the 2.1 this is what i was thinking
and for the 2.5 im going to see about fixing the probs with it for 2.5.2

2, 3, 5, or more???

What would be the ideal choices?

What kid of a mix should it be?

What's the downside of shipping more than say 2 or 3?
