Thoughts comments.
This is based 100% off the Mambo Biz Theme which i grabbed from www.opensourcecms.com/mambo/. The original authors did an incredible job, all i did was "Geek" it.

See here: www.destr0yr.com (may be slow, only 64KBps upstream) Eek!

Oh... it was tested with IE 6sp1 on a WinXP machine on a 21" monitor @ 1600x1200. Does it still look good @ 1024x768? I also opened mozilla for a quick run at it and it looks OK too.

Looks fine in Firebird. I just don't like fixed width sites. The user should dictate the screen size, not the site.

so more width="somepecentage%", rather than ="fixedamountofpixels" ?

That is what I would do. Then you get to play the game of browser wars. Mr. Green

Even those of us that have bigger screens, don't maximize the browser.

The themes are not mine. I simply "geek" them. The Tabular Dynamics theme should be renamed "Plone" as its based off the Plone CMS. This new one will be called Mambo, after the Mambo Biz theme.

The screenshot you have pasted below... looks like one of the tables isnt big enough... i'll have to take look @ it. Also with that theme a few files were missing. The database file and loginforum.thml.

This new theme, i'm kinda waiting for the new release of forums (2.3) as it introduces completely new CSS (no longer in forumstyle.css) before i release it. Smile
