    Bring back old cPanel Forum Skin

    Any hope of the old cPanel forum skin being brought back or at least being added as an option? I'm not a big fan of this new one ;)

    This is a vast improvement if you ask me. The girl in the header of the old theme simply looked cheesy.

    I like the style of this new theme but not having the cPanel lady does feel a little weird.

    For old time's sake: http://www.cpanel.net/images/header.swf

    Looking at the cPanel lady's flash banner directly in a browser, as opposed to it being within a page, you can see that all her skin is grey apart from where it looks like she tried to apply lipstick during a rodeo.

    Whats up with the new style on the forums?

    You guys should really think about hiring a professional designer to do a new skin, no offense but it could be whole lot better :rolleyes:

    I'm not too keen on the binary-themed background images here and there.

    Let's see - cPanel runs on computers, computers use binary . . . hmm . . . let's make a background image with many 1s and 0s. Genius!

    Just a touch too geeky, but it would seem perfectly in place for a forum focussed around 2s complement notation.

    I dissappear for a few days to deal with a cyclone, and I find it hit the forum! Man, what an ugly mess. And it's not that I'm resistant to change - it's just an ugly skin.

    Edit: And I should add, we got a new forum skin, but we don't get a patch for a remotely exploitable hole? Nice priorities, guys - NOT!

    Do we have the option to go back to the old skin eg in our profile?

    This new skin is nicer however I do find the old one easier to use as I have got used to the button layout on a regular basis.

    Forum looks good

    Some of you guys i must laugh at --

    It's a more crisp interface. Looks good to me and more "robust" in things showing up.

    It would be nice if the sender address was fixed, though. Showing up as
    is kind of bad...

    No control characters are proper in a sender address, just for that reason...

    How come the forum no longer matches the cpanel site?

    I'm not going to argue the aesthetic merits of one skin vs. another, but it seems to me the site and forums looked much more professionally integrated when the skins matched.

    Look at it this way, we finally got the green buttons the other theme always lacked. Although the new orange smilies do leave a bit to be desired. ;)

    This will be fixed Monday. As for the theme, we've received many many compliments on it, I personally like it, however, completely understand that some won't. Unfortunately as it's made to flow with bugzilla, support, and our store, we can not offer the "old" one as well.

    We are of course open to any constructive criticism on the new skin, but if you just post that you don't like it we won't know what you don't like about it :confused:

    How about a theme choice that is mobile device friendly? I spend about 50% of my time on a blackberry and getting to the forum for searching or a PM is not that easy on a Blackberry.

    This new theme is better than the older one in my opinion, it just takes some getting used to it.
