Need advice on theme choise - Syff - 2018-03-08

Greetings!

I am currently working on a new theme built with Bootstrap 4 to serve as a base for future templates. I want to release this on the forums once its done and hope it will be useful for some of you.

Since I want to keep it as minimal as possible I'm not sure if I should try to replace all forum icons (images) with fontawesome icons. Personally, I would love to only use only css and fontawesome but I am not sure how other theme creators prefer creating their templates.

Here is a screenshot of the theme in its current state (which is piss early so everything you see is already outdated).

If you have any suggestions be sure to let me know!

You should use fontawesome 5 and some of the tutorials above might not work Smile
Try using SVG based icons and with little modifications the above tutorials should work.
