To entice players to join if they check out our forum, I think we need to make it look more spartan/greek so that the atmosphere looks right and historical. I like the skin that is in MINOS but that doesnt have the nice sidebar that the main skin has. Not sure what we can do about that.

I agree, but there aren't many options for us.   We could create our own skin, but that is hard to do.  And I'm terrible at such things.

A good start would be to create a banner...

Existing SMF themes can be found here.  Perhaps we can make changes to one of these.

Does the forum skin that is used for MINOS, if used on the main page and everywhere get rid of our nifty left hand menu which lists people, treaties, history and events?

Yes, it does.  Sad   But that might not be such a bad thing....

Perhaps, I quite like the menu down the left hand side....

We should probably ask Winnipeg, although I doubt we will get much of a response. Embarrassed

Oh, nice!  I'm going to try it out.

Er... I'll ask the Administrator to look into it.  Wink

I can create a sidebar for Manuscript.  It will take me a little while to figure out how to make it look good, or at least good enough.

Actually, this is going to take a very long time.  The sidebar option is not very good.  I have to learn how to create a sidebar from scratch before I can make any improvements to the Manuscript sidebar.  Expect a long delay.

I've set up the sidebar.  Manuscript is now the default theme.  Make sure you refresh your page.   There are some changes that probably won't show up unless you do.

If you don't see a new forum theme, you probably need to set up your account so that you use the default board themes.

Let me know what you think.   We can always go back to the old theme.
