New Purpy forum skin

As per @xunilog's request, I have added a Purpylite skin to the available themes.  The code boxes in that theme are now dark font on light gray.   Feedback welcome!

Re: New Purpy forum skin

i alway said the meaning of "contrast" its strong agains soft, not soft agains soft but at leas users can change the look when login in the forum..

I bet that if you survey how many users change the main theme you will find a big surprise, maybe forum need to make a survey to see it users real opinion..

Re: New Purpy forum skin

Whilst I agree on the idea that strong contrast is better, a glance at the forum style usage rather shows that most people (88%) find the default anywhere on the scale from pleasant to  sufficiently acceptable, to not bother to change.

In my opinion, there is no problem with the appearance of the forum.

But we could make a black theme to be used as an alternative

No need to do that.  There are already three black themes available under user profile.  wink

Oh, I had nothing to do with that.  They were part of the default FluxBB install.  I only did the two purpy themes.  wink

None using purple/lavender … all using shades of white.

There's certainly room for cool creativity (should the energy be available, and seeking an outlet … in an acceptable direction).
