WIP - MyBB Pro
100% Done: llllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

Goal
The goal of this project is to create a improved version of the Default MyBB theme. The theme will have some nice effects such as more use of images, CSS3 round borders, and a need layout.

The biggest feature of this theme will be rounded corners that will be applied throughout the theme. I will be using the CSS3 radius technology that works on Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and some other browsers. I will not create images for the round corners so that it will appear on IE and Opera.

Now you might ask why not add images for the round borders for IE and Opera. Well if I would do that it will be shame for the CSS3 technology and I am sick of adapting to outdated browsers such as IE. They should go with the new technology instead of waiting a year before they apply it so that other browsers cant claim IE stole the idea form them. Of course every browser steals ideas from each other, if they didn't we wouldn't have those great browsers we have today such as Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.

So please do not come to me and point out that themes should all look the same on every browsers and that it's stupid to not make it rounded for IE and Opera. Althought the rounded borders won't show up in IE, Opera, and some other small browsers I will make sure it will still look great in those browsers.

Features
  • CSS3 round borders (radius)
  • Sleek & Glossy effect
  • More use images to create a nice effect

I like it as well, but I don't think the logo suits very well.

RE: WIP - MyBB Pro
Zomaian, just curious, are you using CSS3 or images to make this? If you're using images, I would love to know how you did it.
