Unofficial Forum Stylesheet - Ye Olde Style

SurikoSuriko AustraliaRegistered User regular
title.png

What this is:
A stylesheet is a way of arranging the presentation elements of a website. This is most commonly accomplished through CSS, which is a basic scripting language which stores information on how each element on a site should look. Any website's stylesheet can be overridden by the end-user, if they have the appropriate browser and/or addons. Ye Olde Style is one such custom style, which overrides many elements of the design of the new forum and replaces its aesthetic with one fairly close to that of the old Penny Arcade forums before the switch from vBB to Vanilla.

How you can use it:
I don't know how they're applied for Internet Explorer users, but Chrome can use them by itself (although not always perfectly). Typically, they're used through Firefox with the Stylus addon, and this is what the development is based around. Once you have Stylus installed, simply go to to the style's page on userstyles.org, and click "Install Style". It's that easy. You should have a little S icon at the top right of the screen, and by right-clicking that, you can enable and disable the style.

Is it kept up to date:
Yes. I browse Penny Arcade daily and use this style all the time, so any brokenness will annoy me. That's good reason for me to keep things updated as the forum grows and changes. If anything looks broken or just 'off', say so in the thread and I'll have a look into it. Updates can be installed either through the Stylish section in the Firefox Addons menu, or by going to the userstyles page and clicking update.

What it looks like:

    The CLOSED tag on closed threads is black on dark blue, which is hard to read.

    Should be grey now. Some stuff was changing on the backend which changed how it looked.

    The little location marker thingy is currently overlapping with a user's text for that box for me.

    Fixed. Looks like the core stylesheet changed the reference for the user location graphic and it wasn't being picked up.

    On my PMs list, there's no indication of who each conversation is with. Without the stylesheet there's an avatar and "You, *Whoever*", but with the stylesheet on it's just part of the last message, number of messages, and date. Could the avatar and/or name be added back? They're very helpful when there's a whole bunch of conversations and I want to find a particular one.

    Minor nit: The previous version of the forums was vBB, not phpBB.

    Thank you so much for this. It works great in Chrome.

    Locations appear to have been updated again. The icon now causes the location bar to be scroll-able. Not sure if you want to address that or not.

    Just to keep you busy: the emoticon picker appears at just a white box until you click on it.

    Updated style to account for them. Looks like they got an improvement and auto-detect their content as opposed to just being monospaced text, so it's going to be easier to just leave unskinned. The contrast is good anyway.

    The line numbers vanish in the code tags. I'm not sure why, the Inspect Element thing isn't telling me any obvious conflicts.

    Fixed. Looks like the list elements were being overridden, so I explicitely referenced them.

    Would it be possible to move the edit button on Penny Arcade - Darkened to the top left of post, where it is on default vanilla. Currently its hidden by the "last edited by" icon.

    I looked at the code and couldn't figure out how to change it.

    edit: this is the style I am talking about http://userstyles.org/styles/50802/penny-arcade-darkened

    Dude, I wish this style was still being updated too, but it's dead.

    A quick and dirty hack is to add "pre{background:black;}" at the end. Then at least it is readable.

    I really wish there was a way to not get notifications about every thread you've made. One more popular thread fills my notifications so I can't see this topic's notifications easily.

    Aw, did they get rid of the version with the line numbers and syntax highlighting? That was neat.

    You can. Go to your profile, edit settings, notification preferences. I only get notifications for PMs and being mentioned now. I remember you couldn't change it back when we first switched to vanilla, but it's working now.

  • ASimPersonASimPerson Cold... ... and hard.Registered User regular
    I think he only wants notifications for certain threads, not to turn them off completely.

    Well, turning them off for all threads is the next best thing. I can just bookmark the ones I still want to follow. Thanks Ante.

    Since this forum is longer on the front page, I feel like we've gone underground here. Like some sort of rebellion.

    Looking forward to an update when you get to it. Will shield my eyes until then.
