CB Website Themes? (in General)

MissingNo March 31 2009 3:04 AM EDT

What happened to our skinnable CB themes we were supposed to get years ago? :\ The last time anyone mentioned anything, Pixel Sage was supposed to be working on it. But I haven't heard anyone mention anything since. Wut happened?

new GUI, old themes no longer working and making new themes is rather hard.

Pretty sure the idea of 'themes' was scrapped, we've only the default theme now.

Pixel Sage up and left, came back and left again, and now signs in every once in a while. 15 days ago currently.

Wasn't pixel working on his cell phone game business?

Jon's stated it's too much effort to make the engine themeable, which is unfortunate.

Well, I mean there are default cb css files that could be overridden if one so chose.

Flamey March 31 2009 9:27 AM EDT

So really, it could be given to us, only not in a pretty form like the theme editor from CB1 or early CB2?

AdminNightStrike March 31 2009 9:38 AM EDT

I'm afraid I'm not familiar with the theme editor.

For those who saw me sign into chat for a second, I left because my internet cut =P. Anyways, regarding themes. I thought you all knew by now, but Jon decided to scrap the theme feature ages ago. Trust me, I've tried to convince him to continue with it, but it seems it's a no-go. In the meantime. I'm contemplating on a job offer from Tapulous...

Would a GM script be able to accomplish this or is there a simpler way to override the default css?

*clings to her dream of once more having the Blue/Grey theme*

Haloki March 31 2009 3:20 PM EDT

ONE theme to rule them all!!!

SNK3R theme ftw...

QBPixel Sage April 1 2009 2:23 AM EDT

Well, if you guys want themes, I'm all for it. But you gotta convince Jon, and I've already tried. Good luck!

There's no 3rd party thing that anyone could do? Modifying the CSS and overlaying? So it's not done through CB. Is that a pipe dream or possible?
