While this is not an English forum, I decided to post it here to exhibit the website style designed by myself.
It imitates the 2004 NewvBB style (original designer: 007pig).
(NewvBB is a famous modded+nulled version of vBulletin 3.0.x around 2004.)
My imitation target is its variant used in CS-CN gaming forum:
I was initially redesigning this style from scratch for my purchased vBulletin 3.8.11 using latest HTML5 codes. I even remastered all icon pictures in SVG format.
However, I found that my preference of vBulletin 3.x (with latest PHP + MySQL) looks awkward in vBulletin.org forum, making vBulletin 5 devs feel sick.
After doing some personal investigation with a nulled XenForo 2 release for 2 days, there came my strong decision to give up using vBulletin. I immediately purchased my XenForo copy for my website.
It is a pretty new experience to me coding new theme for XenForo 2, regardless some limitations like customizing status logo icons for nodes, etc.
Still, I wonder how the vertical postbit style (inherited from vBulletin 3) is regarded by web users in current years.
Feel free to share your comments to my XF style.
