I've looked all over my profile options for a way to change the skins but I can't find anything. Will I ever get my pretty pirate back?

Philistine! I personally liked to use the green theme, but just knowing the pirate was there was always nice. Hopefully we can get our nice themes back eventually, but I imagine that alteration may be necessary for them to work with the new software.

I find rather laughable some of the new features this version adds. I don't need forum software to keep track of who my friends are for me, much less to show me a picture of myself at the top of every page.

I'm still trying to get the hang of the IPB 3.0 admin panel. I have added a few skins, but they don't appear to show up. The pirate skin, however, is unavailable. :(

I preferred the old, simple blue layout, I'll admit.

I spent quite a bit of time installing and tweaking themes on the old forum, and creating banners for some of them (Riibu did the ones on the default green and blue theme). I'm afraid I won't have time to do that again for a few weeks. Or months, more like.

I miss Pirate, but I don't miss its broken fixed-width layout at all. That header did things that would make any designer lose their lunch. Maybe with some time (see above) it would be possible to port the theme and make it fluid-width at the same time.

Is anyone else having problems with editing their sig? I keep getting an error about the number of lines of text that I'm using. And the number of links that I'm trying to insert.

Indeed, the board's dark miasma rains on the tattered soul miasma of your... soul. Rain. Something.

I haven't been able to figure out the sig problem yet, but I am researching it.

Found an awfully annoying quirk to the new forums. When you edit an old post, all the BBC code has been converted to HTML and has to be reverted to BBC for the post to look like it's supposed to. Is this just something from the transfer of the old posts and is there anything that can be done about it?

Edit: Yeah looks like it's happened to the old posts, but doesn't happen to the new ones.

Okay. So from the template that came with this skin, I made a board header that blends in better than that of the old Charcoal skin. Honestly though, it looks pretty boring. The template basically consisted of the black oval shadow and some white Arial text, and I had to completely replace the latter just to get something relatively neat...

Oh well. Maybe there'll be some neater skins once the 3.0 version gets a bit older.

OK. The signature problem has been fixed.

Jewels, I don't think your problem can be fixed. I believe it is a side-effect of the upgrade. Members do have the ability to use HTML though, so if you turn HTML on in the post you are editing, you shouldn't need to rewrite anything.

Except I tried that and it didn't work. I wouldn't have mentioned it if the html had done what it was supposed to.

Just as an example. But if it can't be helped I'll adapt.
