I only see a few actual themes there and most of them are sadly reskins or modifications of the base theme, with the exception of @trevor's magical wonderland.
@luke yeah I'm not a fan of the bootstrap skins, the trouble with theming is once you've seen @trevor's theme, you just know it won't be quite as good.
Thank you guys so much, how flattering.
Or you can do what @trevor did which was basically modify the Vanilla theme and learn everything from that repo itself.
Yup, Vanilla based and my theme is still nodebb-theme-vanilla. I just never changed it, but I plan on changing it soon enough because of the npm and nodebb upgrade conflicts of overriding everything.
Here's the process though... Interestingly enough I started by stripping out the things I'd prob never use in Bootstrap for a forum frontend (maybe backend but I stripped it out anyway).
And worked my way from the center in an outward pattern. So this means I began customizing everything from inside the <div id="content" class="container">...</div> then the header and footer. 8-14 hours a day, at 500~ iterations a day (because sometimes when you don't have a plan, and its just you, you ask yourself "does this look right?"). I use the same template pattern but add or remove different things.
I believe the LESS combined without including Bootstrap's Less and just my own custom one should be around 12,000 or so with about 2,000~ lines of code thats commented and commented out.
I've started on a theme I will release for the community but I can't give an ETA on this because I am hammered with other things at the moment. I am still learning everyday new things about NodeBB and how far I can push its limits which almost seem endless.
Can somebody help me.
I want delete all of the avatars and replace some of them by the username in the persona theme. but I don't know exactly where and how to do it.
1. I want the avatars be gone from the post.
How do I do that? if I use display: none; the avatars will go away. But the text will not move to the left as I want it to.
2. On the recent page I want the avatars replaced by the username.
3. In the notification-bar I want the avatars be removed and the text go to the left.
4. All the avatars removed from the chat and text to the left.
(only for dutch people) Als je Nederlander bent, niet letten op de tekst ik heb veel wierdo's op mijn forum :')
5. On the profile page I want the timeline removed.
The rest I did removed with display: none; in the CSS but the things above didn't work that way. So please I need a little help.
My English is not very good, because of that I make pictures so I can tell better what I try to say.
