In 2007 phpBB stepped into a new era with its release of the now infamous “prosilver” theme. One decade ago we pushed the envelope of what a forum should look like, how it should function, and how we build and customise themes.
This year we are announcing our plans to go where no forum has ever gone before. We are starting on a journey to venture outside the scope of our current galaxy to a place far far away.
In search of an experience so groundbreaking, so shocking, that you will not want to miss the excitement. So suit up and strap on your jetpacks in preparation for the launch of something revolutionary. In the following blog post, we will be outlining the plans for the coming time and show you some screenshot of things we’ve been working on.
Over the course of the next year or so we will update you on the progress and outline everything in complete detail. For now, you can see the full scope of some of the components we’ve been working on over here.
In relation to this we are also standing up a new Front-end Development team, as we will be leveraging a lot of advanced forward thinking processes, techniques, common practices, and technologies; more to come on the specifics. To do this we will need to bring on several new motivated and talented individuals to work on and help oversee this mission through.
With that said if you think this is something you may be interested in and/or are qualified for, please private message or email me with your qualifications, examples and a brief description of why you think you would make a good addition to this project.
In the meantime head over to the to Styles in Development topic of the new style to track the status of the work and get further details and discussion to help contribute. You can also have a look at the repo over at Github and head over to the Area51 “Styles Development” forum for specific discussion related to the development itself.
Below are some more screenshots from the components we’ve been developing:
