New styles

The new version of the forum (under phpBB) is coming with a few default styles. For a start, I've installed three styles, but obviously we can have more, depending on your taste.
  1. Historical Fiction Online Dark Blue - User info on the left

    This is the default one, for now, with the poster information on the left when browsing a thread.

  2. Historical Fiction Online Dark Blue - User info on the right

    Lighter shades of blue, with the user information on the right when viewing posts.

  3. Historical Fiction Online Latte

    This is my personal default, with shades of beige and brown:

All these 3 styles are optimised for computer screen / tablets and smartphones.

How to change your default style

Go into your user preferences by clicking on your username on the top right of each page, then User Control Panel from the popup menu.

You will get to a page like this, after you clicked on the Board Preferences tab:

From there you can choose the default style you want to use, then you click Submit.

Done!

Just to say that I'm loving the Xmas snow and Santa hats, thanks Fred! :D
