Stealth Mode for forum

Post by UnCL0NED » Tue Nov 06, 2012 7:01 pm

With the old look of the forum I could easily check this forum on a daily basis at work. But this new color just attracts too much attention on my 30 inch screen at work. My boss already gave me a disliking look (which he never did when I had this site open before). And one of my colleagues already asked me if I was checking some porn site or something? 8O

Anyway, it would be nice if we could get a "stealth" version of this forum (maybe just a switch button; black and white and grey as it was before was just perfect!)... 8)

ps. I don't want to start a discussion again about what people think of the colors on the new website, etc...

I believe it was Angstrom made a thread showing how to customize the skin of the site so it didn't look so... fleshy.

:lol: it would be possible to style it so it looks like a word document.
I do have other things to do though, but the thread about styling is here

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=185957

it's quite easy to tinker with the colours, although the PHPbb document has the worlds most terrible structure, so nothing is labelled sensibly.

I am a fan of the design of the new website, but the forum is just... extremely questionable color design.

really? :lol: The forum changes from gray (is that what it was before?) to tan and suddenly your boss is giving you the evil eye and people think you're looking at porn? mkay

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... mlapalklgn You can set the colours and tell it not to show images if you want.

Angstrom's works in various browsers I think.

This is really cool.

Yeah I know... I've just gotten used to it ;) It's really a luxury problem, because I do resize the window at times, but I often forget. I'm just that lazy!

Funken's solution is clean and simple! Exactly what I was looking for!
Thanks...

On Google chrome: Find a page you want to read > press ctrl+u > press f11. Instantly looks like when you're coding when in fact you're reading a forum :lol:
