Hi everyone!  

 

So, I've been working lately on making a new theme for BZPower that is reminiscent of it's old theme.

 

Here's what I have so far:

 

Imaged Linked due to size

 

I'm still working out the tabs and the user bar.   May also replace the icons as well.

 

 

Now, this theme is currently being developed as a Safari and Google Chrome Extensions.  With a Firefox extension coming after those are finished.

 

What that means is you'll be able to quickly install the Extension, and BZP will have this new skin!

 

 

Note to staff:  The CSS for this is also compatible with IPB 3.*, meaning you could incorporate it into BZP as a permanent thing if you wish.

That looks nice, but no offence, I like the current one better. But that is some nice work in making that.

This theme is more for the people who preferred the previous theme.  Or just like the Nostalgia of it.  :P

When I saw the theme here on BZP, I never wanted to join. Really. But now I like this new look. But you make a better fresher theme for this, I'll be pleased.

Looks good, although I would suggest that you replace the standard IPB icons for the forums with Hapori Tohu faces. And if you really want to go all out, make the background light blue. :)

I like it, I would use this if it were available. I agree with fishers, Tohu icons and a blue background would be good.  I also think the header image could use a spruce up.  The original is sort of blurred.  If it were a sharper image, that would round it all off nicely.

Well, I've got the icons added now.  I'm not too sure about the blue background though, are you referring to the background of the site itself?  Or the section where the individual topics are listed?

Section where the individual topics are listed. If you can do that in light blue, that would be nice, but not necessary. :)

That is awesome, it looks like a clone of the old skin(rush of nostalgia), the staff should make work on implenting these.

Even better now, the Tohu heads work well. 

 

I recall in a similar topic once, someone suggested the idea of using the Ninjago logo for the Ninjago wiki forum.  Thats not really an artistic suggestion, but it would add a little diversity.

You'll be able to Install the theme in the form of a Chrome Extension.   Which I will be finishing up and releasing shortly!

The new one you made looks much better now, with the Tohu heads instead of the boring IPB speech bubbles. I'll try this one for a change.
