When you say layout, you mean?

We can't edit the .tpl files (templates folder) ??

I think i'll go with no :)

You see, I like to design stuff... and If you guys remove the ..tpl files, then I can't make my own ways and ideas.

example:

All that will still be possible, it might even be a little bit easier (can't compare since I never worked with Smarty). Those are fairly simple modifications also.

Basically, the TPL files will be merged with the PHP files. So if you navigate to ban_list.php, everything will be rendered within that file instead of 5+ different files (now some common things will be rendered in other files still, but that is just things that every page has in common, such as the Menu Bars and Page Footer). That is one of the things I dislike about Smarty, you cannot easily figure out which TPL file controls which part of the rendered page.

Well, almost 2 weeks have gone by and only 1 person has provided any useful arguments against this action. So, I am going to start looking into this transition as a BETA build. I will still be open to other arguments either for or against this.

If someone wants to design a new layout for 6.1, contact me with a "proof of concept" image/build and we can talk about it.

I feeeel like designing some of the new theme..

what colors do you want..

Light colors (grey, light blue, etc..) or dark colors (Black, red, blue, etc..)?

I'm free most of the time, I can't assure you i can do it, but just gimme some information and I will try to do it.


EDIT: I will try 2 post some images (stuff i worked and edited).....

Half of them are dark colors (blue+black) (black) (etc..)

You retain the rights to do whatever you want with them no matter what. Plus, the current license forbids commercial uses.

Those themes are just recolors, there isn't anything unique there. I was expecting someone to come up with a complete redesign of the site, not just recolors.
