It looks pretty good actually. Stylish can be downloaded here:

I'm going try it out.... If it's a big difference I might make a second MT theme available so people could use it without a plugin.

Looks nice eh?

EDIT: Removed 2015: Imageshack replaced all links with spam.

Has some kinks to work out.. The big darkblue gap between posts for example.

But it's really MTish :)

There's one feature from Mega-Tokyo which was quite good, I think. On the main index page, under the Last Post column, it used to include the topic name of the last post as well which you could click on and go directly to the last message. Right now there is a little pointy page and just a date+name.

Done, there are now 3 urls in the Last Post column on the index page. The topic title goes to the first page of the topic, the author goes to the author profile and the little graphic goes to the last post itself.


IIRC, on MT the "last post" link took you to the first post that is new since your last visit, not the last post in the thread. Any chance your "last post" button can do the same?

I made a little edit in my previous post to remove some picture or sth between posts. The gap between posts is becasue of some cellspacing and cellpadding attributes that can't really be dealt with (in a good way) through CSS.

Thanks, Chase, for doing so much. I wasn't so sure about the move but you've definitely made me more comfortable.

Haven't said so yet, but I must say I feel quite at home here... it's like MT but just a very slight bit different. It's great that you've been able to get this to be just about equal to MT for the MTers without screwing it up for the people that were here for a longer time.

Unfortunately it applies to the entire domain, including the front page and the wikis. Luckily, that's easily fixed. Just change this line:
Code:
@-moz-document domain(osdev.org) {

to this:
Code:
@-moz-document url-prefix(http://www.osdev.org/phpBB2/) {

and it only applies to the forums.

I'll put it on the TODO list. I want to do some of the wiki work before doing more forum changes. Just want to mention to all the people new to OSDev.org, we've got pretty good RSS feeds here, take a look at http://www.osdev.org/phpBB2/smartfeed_url.php Depending on how you configure it you can get all new posts in all forums or single forums, or just watch for new topics. With a good RSS reader it's probably the best way to keep track of what you've read and haven't read.

I've taken the CSS info that Bubach created made a new theme called mtDark2. Required some manual editing of template files and such where as the first mtDark theme was made with just the phpBB theme administration interface. Since I did a little bit of hand editing here, if you find a page that doesn't look right please take a screen cap and post it. Thanks for the CSS changes Bubach. And in case anyone wonders it's DF approved.

Yes, this is perfect. :) This has been a very smooth transition. Thanks Chase!

Hmmmm... my attendance at MT had sharply declined some time before the move, and I'm late to make any appearance at this place, but perhaps you still want my word on it... ;-)

Two things:

1) I haven't checked; have links within posts been converted so that thread cross-links are still functional? If not, that would be a real shame...

2) IMVHO, there are too many sub-forums around here. MT had OS Dev, OS Test, General Programming, Get a life (4) - here, there are 12 (!) subforums, half of which are administrative in nature...

I recorded the mapping between old and new thread and message ids. See posts 3-5 on the first page of this thread. I just have to write the search and replace program sometime this week.

Yep agreed, already said(forget which thread) that I'm going to be collapsing some of them.
