you see how well that is going down over the road hey...I kinda like the default styles, but more importantly I think those of us that want to customize the style :: raises hand :: will want to do it themselves or have a skin developer do it for them.
I'd really rather Kier and Mike keep focused on the work they are doing rather than spend any time on alternate styles. We've got a fixed and a fluid style, that's plenty for now IMO.
No, Kier's already confirmed that there is phrasing:does this mean i am going to dread attempting a translation? is there nothing like phrases or replacement variables?
Not only is it fully phrased, we have developed a crowd-sourcing translation system built on top of the XenForo framework, so that you all can help us to produce non-English versions in record time.
We will deploy the translator on XenForo.com hopefully in the next few days.
He was referring to all the internal references in the code. Not necessarily all the "phrases" that an end-user will see.does this mean i am going to dread attempting a translation? is there nothing like phrases or replacement variables?
Seriously... Break out Firefox with Firebug up and running and try out changing some CSS values, it's THAT easy. Recoloring it is going to be a pretty trivial task. The only thing I'd be worried about is transparency of the small images (smilies etc) and they have done a fantastic job of making sure there are dang few images to worry about.you see how well that is going down over the road hey...
in an ideal world xf would be as easy to recolour as a rockettheme, and allow wordpress-like widget shuffling, but at minimum please include a dark style and a mobile style.
And that will confuse the hell out of new visitors to the site, "I really like the new eyecanday around here", get's my vote.Let's just call the styles, themes, or skins ... whichever you have personal preference for ... 'EyeCandy'. Simple, to the point, and really all a 'theme' is. Besides, it would be unique.
