Member Selected Skin

Post by acem on November 20th 2010, 11:29 pm

Hey all,

I was wondering if it's at all possible that I can install several different skins to my forum at once, and that the members can individually choose which to view?

Thanks.

I don't think it is. Because if they get to choose what theme to choose, it would mess up the look of the forum from user to user.

I know what you mean, vb has this ability. I'd like to know if this is possible also.

You cannot. You can only view one skin. Having more than one skin may cause unbearable lag, more or less.

No, I see this as being possible but It would be quite the task to code everything in. It wouldn't be as easy as just uploading buttons. You'd have to label each button to a theme then declare where each button lies. I personally don't have the html/css/js knowledge to perform this kind of task.

It's common sense to me. Why put multiple skins on when your forum is about one subject. For example, would you put a Gears of War skin and a Halo 3 skin on a gaming forum?

No, more like different colors. Dark skin, light skin. The only thing is, is that each theme is based off of one css/template skeem.

At this time this is the only way unless you are a good coder and know how to do it better.
