I think light colours rather then bright in your face ones. People will get a headache if there on the forum for more then 10th mins

no mate, you cant make it like that, that would mean everybody having control of the administration panel, which would not be a good idea...., not sure where the other admins are lately as have slimmed it down and made it easier as requested, but im struggling with the colours at the minute, to brighten the place up a bit a change is needed from boring gothic black!! but trying to keep everybody happy does prove a nightmare.....

A lot of phbb boards give you options to change the theme in the user cp.
You just upload your selected themes to the ftp where the data is held,then enter the code to make the theme selectable in the cp.
Metalcore is a good one with plenty of options if your running phbb3.
This colour is proper ranktastic btw lol but like you say you cant please everyone and i despise anything green so it's never gunna be my favourite!lol Laughing

i am happy to help where i can but not great with computers. had a chat with kai and he is coming to mine soon to move topics around.

i have tried but theres so many colour opions and when you start messing with them thinking your changing one your changing a different one!! and it all gets mighty confusing!! , if kai can tweek it some more then alls good, i was just going with the comments made and pm's id had, didnt mean to put anybody out, i had time last week but cant spare hours this week trying things!! if some one who is more familiar with forum layout / colours etc can post any ideas thta would be good!! , i hope i havent trimmed it down too much as i know kai spent alot of time doing the original forum layout, but id say ony 35% of it was acutally used and as people were commenting it was too complicated thats why i tried to narrow it down a bit.

im preffering the lighter colours myself alot less eyework!, just need to get a scheme that works a bit smoother!! ,
