    If you knew what's involved in creating a theme for this thing, you wouldn't be wishing it off on Fish so glibly. ;) There is a reason people get paid to do it.

    It was enough of a pain trying to change parts of the theme in the old version of the boardware. This new version is completely different and even worse. I've looked at it, but it's beyond my meager skills.

    (Fuck... that first line sounds like Hyppo, doesn't it? :shock: Shoot me, shoot me NOW! :cry: )

    BLAM!

    Just kidding.

    We will be updating the software around here pretty soon. The new version of the board will allow us to sink captchca hook into any skin, not just subsilver and prosilver, so if someone wants to get going on this I will say that we can safely make it the default skin around here.

    Also happy to set up a test board so that any skinners with dreams of glory can sharpen their skills eslewhere first.

    I've got a very basic prosilver tinker pretty much good to go (just needs some custom buttons)


    Chigger is right on the full works skin that Freak has been dreaming about - it is far more complex than what I can do. But... a colour tint, a better (read: bigger) logo, and some nice button bollocks. Piece of piss. :)

    I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know

    Don't think that numbers are a part of that font package, IIRC.

    simple, most obvious answer's usually the right one ...

    I didn't even check that out, just loaded up the old "Window Color and Appearance" form with the font ....

    looks real good as a window title bar, not too bad for menus - as with most specialized fonts, it'd be more useful
    with lower-case letters, too - easier to read ....

    oh, okay, I see it now - firefox uses the windows message box message text for bookmarks, tab titles, and all the toolbar
    stuff - buttons w/text, the address bar, search bar .... I've got a long weather bar that shows a five day & night forecast,
    high & low temps - the text is OH, but the numbers have defaulted to whatever the gadget was using - it's stylized. and
    looks like it fits right it with the OH font ... so shit, I guess I saw that and thought, okay thass-a workin' ...

    alrighty-then ...

    Can you put up a screenshot of those numbers sr? Like to see how well they fit with the font.

    Good luck with that. I just tried updating the test installation on HToD and followed all the directions but the damned thing kept telling me all the updater files hadn't been uploaded. I re-uploaded everything three times and it still wouldn't work. (It did update the database, though.)

    The only thing I can figure is that there's something hookey with the file permissions, from back when the NetSol dickheads played around [read: "fucked at it with their fingers up their noses while their heads were up their asses"] with all that stuff back when they had the cracker problem back in April & May.

    I'll download a full version of the new software and replace all the files with it on Monday. (Hell, the database is already ready for the new version, so why not?! :P )

    When were you & Ragaboo planning on upgrading? :?

    "When we get to it," so no set date yet. Maybe over the holiday. We just did the Worm's update and got it all wrapped up in a few hours. The only problems we had were because of Worm's provider.

    Lack of numerals in the font? (Guessing)
