BL Forum Style Improvements on Userstyles.org

You may all have noticed that the forums include, besides the default Hydrogen custom style, all of the FluxBB default styles as well as the #! forum style. Out of these, we officially support only the Hydrogen default style.

Users might however want to get rid of various other things: Remove the large FluxBB footer to save screen estate and because they don't need it, or hide the forum moderator list in all of the FluxBB default styles since the names are always the same anyways.

To address this, I have uploaded a few user styles on userstyles.org from where users can easily download and activate these modifications for Firefox by using the Stylish addon.

Note that these mods may interfere with the look of non-default FluxBB themes, including Hydrogen!

Currently available are:

I'll add more styles as I see fit. Contributions are welcome smile

Re: BL Forum Style Improvements on Userstyles.org

I have added two user-configurable styles:

  • Configurable fonts: Use this to change the default theme font and font sizes according to your own preference.

  • Configurable page width: Use this to expand or reduce the width the of the forum content. Useful on very wide monitors.

Re: BL Forum Style Improvements on Userstyles.org

Yes, I like the Twoion theme as well, and I normally don't even like dark themes. But the dark charcoal tends to be easier on the eyes in dark light.

Re: BL Forum Style Improvements on Userstyles.org

Quick tip...add the following to the very top of Twoion's configurable fonts stylesheet for access to many more fonts:

@import url(https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Inconsolata);

Change Inconsolata to whatever you like. Browse more at https://www.google.com/fonts.

You can add as many fonts as you like by using a pipe delimiter:

@import url(https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Inconsolata|PT Sans|Oxygen);

Re: BL Forum Style Improvements on Userstyles.org

…or just install the respective fonts locally. Google's web fonts have some problems; a couple of typefaces have inferior hinting, and others have modified weights when compared to the original font–that's the reason btw why we host the webfonts used in the Hydrogen stylesheet on our servers instead of using the OpenSans from fonts.google.com.

Re: BL Forum Style Improvements on Userstyles.org

Interesting, I wasn't aware of that. Is it just how they are hosted or something to do with the font format? Anyhow, if people prefer to have them installed locally, I find typecatcher to be a convenient way to do so. It's in the repos.

I forgot to mention, for some reason '.pun *' wasn't changing the individual post text for me. However, when I added

.pun .postmsg p

it picked it up.
