I guess I need to install the forum to see other colors for theming, I don't like these white colors overall — but it seems it might be easy to change, I'll have to have a look.
Yes, it's all changed in just one CSS file. Also, this file is used both for the Desktop version and for the Mobile template, so you have to adopt it all in just one place.
For the most recent versions, I've tried to achieve that you basically have to change just 5 colors, which are collected in the common piece of CSS code. If you follow css/default.css
from top to the bottom, you'll find the /* Colors */
block and then 5 colors which handle almost everything. Sure you could go deeper and adjust many other options, but as simpler you make it, the better it would be.
You could use services like Adobe Color
to find the most harmonic color combination. It was planned to adopt something like miniBB automatic skin maker to it, but I didn't come to it 'cause not having a lot of time to work it out.
The mobile ability, I saw there was a plugin? But now miniBB already is mobile ready out of the box???
Ahh, I think I get it, so minibb is not mobile ready out of the box. You need the plugin for that.
Yes, there is an add-on
for this. The add-on is a stable version and it's also used here on our forum to demonstrate what it is about. Yes it's a paid add-on, we need to get at least something to let this project being developed. But if you purchase the add-on and use the Compiler tool, you could compile the «out-of-the-box» version straight without installation hassles.
If you check the basic forum (without this add-on) with the Google Mobile test
, it will show that the forum is Mobile-friendly. But it wouldn't be comfortable in real usage on a smartphone. The Mobile template add-on is a completely different set of templates, which differs from a desktop version a lot.
