What do all these symbols mean?

Sun Mar 15, 2015 6:19 pm

There have been times when I didn't know what all these symbols meant,
but here I have provided a list so you know what these symbols mean.

The raspite theme:
An Announce (Green) is at the top of that particular sub-forum; a Global (Red) is at the top of all the forums; a Sticky (Blue) is a thread stuck at the top of the sub-forum.
Image - Topic is unread
Image - Topic is locked
Image - Attachment

The prosilver theme:
A read topic has a blue border; an unread topic has a red border.
Image - Announcement
Image - Sticky topic
Image - Read topic
Image - Unread topic
Image - Topic that you have posted in
Image - Hot topic
Image - Locked topic
Image - Moved topic
Image - Forum with subforums (which have been read)
Image - Link forum
Image - Attachment
Image - Go to last post in the topic
Image - Go to last unread post in the topic
Image - Subforum read
Image - Subforum unread

these symbols apply to both the raspite and the pro silver theme.

They do? never seen them in raspite, only in pro silver, except perhaps the tiny symbols, like the paperclip.
Also al these symbols are always black in raspite. I believe your list is only valid for default phpbb themes.

that doesn't mean that these symbols appear when using the raspite theme, none of them you will ever see when using that theme.

I massively prefer to use the default theme that everybody uses. That prevents confusion, and besides I actually like raspite, its a lot less busy.

prosilver is simply the default for the engine this BBS runs on, its the same for BBS's everywhere, generic.
Raspite was actually designed for this forum.

Too much whitespace in Raspite for me, I like condensed information aka busy-ness :)

You're the board admin, can't you change it?

There's way too much white space between posts in the forum lists.

I also like pig's brain, poached and then fried in butter with a little sage, served on toast. That's not a reason to make everyone else eat it. ;)

I'm color blind sometimes so I usually see black and white. :roll:
