Way back in 2007 when this board was 1st founded on a phpBB 2 platform, we had a lovely default skin: proTrails. When the board was upgraded, we lost this phpbb 2 skin and unfortunately this style was never converted to the phpBB 3 platform --- Until now. Although it may not be 100% exact - a work in progress if you will - it is 80 ~ 90% accurate based on old screen grabs I discovered on my backup drive.

Hopefully everyone who remembers the good old days will enjoy this old yet new addition.

Just so you know.............

DrM mentioned "subtrails" in the header.
Then he mentioned "protrails" in his post. (I believe he meant prosilver which I don't think was here a couple days ago, but I might have missed it if it was here already)

If the members look closely, he has now added BOTH in the last 24 hours or so.




Subtrails = very light green (which I had enjoyed and missed)
Also, it has the "Who is online" feature at the bottom of the main page, AND a new "Who was here" indicator, that lists all members and bots that have visited every 24 hour period.
Not all skins have both of those features, at least not enabled thusfar.


:sparkle: Subtrails :sparkle: = winner winner chicken dinner for TZ DZ. :dance: Nice find DrM.

Just a small note:

By default, subSilver 2 and proSilver comes with the phpBB3 system.

On our old board, 2007 ~ 2009, we had a skin called proTrails - but only for phpBB2.

As stated, nobody ever converted the old proTrails skin to the newer phpBB 3 system. I took the subSilver 2 style and modified it based on some old screen grabs from 2007 ~ 2009. So, we have our original Style/Skin back in sorts and since I have recreated it - we, PtE Forums - are the only board that has it. Since I rebuilt it, I made sure that certain features that aren't 100% compatible with other styles are compatible with this style. Note the footer at the bottom of each page ;)

PS: You're welcome, TZ DZ :D

I must have overlooked "prosilver" the first time around.

On that note -
The prosilver skin is having its share of problems, if anyone has tried it. IN FACT, PLEASE DON'T TRY IT, it's possible to get stuck with a problem you will have a hard time changing.

I have forwarded all the info to DrM, and it should be looked at later this evening or tomorrow.

Just so you guys know, "prosilver" is a very light blue which seems to be a popluar choice on many boards. It is also very similar to the look of boards we have used in the past. (if you like that light look)

Personally , I like the light green of "subtrail", but if you like the light blue, we will have that option soon enough. Aero is a close choice too, but its a bit darker.

Very weird indeed. The only Style that even uses prosilver is PtE_Black and it's working fine.

This may have been part of the culprit that caused our Sunday Night issue. In case any member noted non existent topics and the inability to log on on Sunday for a few hours, and lost some posts, we had to back up to 5:00 PM to resolve this issue. Still unsure what happened.

Anyway - I have disabled prosilver for the mean time. I've checked the other skins and they are performing correctly. So until we can get it sorted out - and since no one was using it - lets just avoid it by disabling it..
