Whats new about Shift Forums


Recommended Posts

Steven P.

Welcome to the new default Shift theme for the forums.

The forums finally take on the same style of the main page in this updated version of Shift, made compatible with all major browsers and slightly updated cleaned up code.

We have had an extensive staff beta and I am sure members will find bugs here and there, these will be ironed out over the next few days. Please use Bug Tracker when submitting issues with this theme and make sure you state which browser you are using, if possible include a screen-shot of the problem.

These are a few of the major changes applied to the default theme, and some what different from Swift:

  • Forum header is cleaner, less confusing content at the top of the page
  • The Forum navigation shows 2 levels, easier viewing when browsing forum levels
  • The Topics and Forum categories now alternate in color, rather than alternating column colors
  • User names now retain their formatting on forum & topic indexes (except for Last Topic by cells)
  • New and unread Topics are now bold (this will become very helpful and takes getting used to)
  • Recent news/forum/blog items can be viewed by hovering on the tab (this behavior can be disabled in usercp board options)
  • One Quick Links menu allows you to view all the board options anywhere on the board, not just from the index
  • Quick Reply now uses the new IPB 2.x editor, rather than the old 1.x style

Swift has served us well! It has been the default forum theme for about 6 years now. It's fitting that this new theme launches exactly 6 years after our re-launched vBulletin forums in July 2001.

We know that everything won't be perfect, so bear with us as we squash the last bugs.

Different colors will be launched when we are satisfied that the theme is completed.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
