theme suggestions?

If you find one you like post it here.

Also, we will should probably have two, one for inner core and one for the public section.

Something responsive.

The demo looks good on computer down to iPhone 5. That would be a nice one. I looked at some other responsive themes and they are either really big type on large screen (lots of scrolling) or horrible typography on small screen (lots of squinting).

And I think I like it!  What say you?

I added a grey theme for the Inner Core so there is an obvious distinction between the public and private sections.  There are other color variations on the default theme if you all think it is too monochromatic.

Scratch that, the theme didn't play nice with the responsive plugin -- looking for another solution.

What about the nffc suggested? That worked well on all my devices in the demo

Er, I don't find that theme aesthetically pleasing.  I'll put that one up as an option and you'll be able to select it in your profile settings if you want it.

This one is difficult to read for these old tired eyes. The old one was good, wasn't broken, didn't need fixing.

[added] OK, just read the reason. Belay my previous.

Woz, if there is a compatible theme you like let me know.

I did a slight modified curve theme for the IC so that it will be more easily distinguished.  I also added a version of the Konusal-bootstrap theme that you can select by going into your profile and then click on "Look and Layout".  There you will find a link that allows you to select the theme you want.  If you pick the a theme other than the first choice (Forum or Board Default) it will override the default theme for the forum overall or the modified curve theme for the IC section.

Also, if you hate the mod I did for Konusal-bootstrap let me know.  I used the old logo from when this was a private board and it filled me with nostalgia.
