I'd hasten to add to that point that there is *no link* to the wiki at *all* from the forum template - at least in the prosilver theme.

Most of the newcomers use the prosilver theme (it's the default I think) so that makes it harder to work with. Maybe the link could be a few lines under the motto?

The guest theme is subsilver, the registered user theme is prosilver (which is what I and many others use).

MegaTokyo is the only good theme on this forum, I suspect I'm part of the minority still using it though...

Still, It would be nice to have a link to the Wiki and the front page near the top... ;)

Yeah, we want either Combuster or Brendan to be an admin so one of them can make the changes themselves :P Not being sarcastic (it would really be a good thing!)

I use prosilver as well, I find it nice, especially since it's great for widescreen monitors. \:D/

They are admins. There's a shared admin account. However this sort of change needs changes in the physical template files, which obviously chase can only do himself.

Hi,

I've edited the prosilver and subsilver2 themes to contain a wiki link. I chose these two because subsilver is the guest theme and prosilver the default member theme.

It's big and bold in the top right - you can't miss it. I was considering making it a different colour (e.g. green) so that it stands out more from the rest of the template, but decided against it.

Enjoy.

James

Any chance you could do the blackbox_blue theme?
Thanks
