What do you guys think of this forum style? I kinda like it and will probably tweak it out a bit by swapping out the buttons with some custom made ones of my own. I also notice that I have to change it so text links come across as a different color, else they could be missed.

Do you love it? Hate it?

Let me know.

Certainly change the links, and the buttons are ok, but lets see what you come up.

These are samples of ones I had been working on a while ago. I'd have to see how close I can come to recreating them, because I think the .psd file for them was on the flash drive I lost. :cry:

I do still have the ones I was working on. If you have need of them, just let me know.

I like the overall look and feel, but I'm a NeXT guy too or at least used to be. Anybody want to buy an old NeXTstation?

The alternate buttons in the example aren't bad, the color of the foreground text makes some of them hard to read at a glance though. I'm an advocate for smaller/simpler navigation in general though. With a site like this - forums based - there's generally enough work the browser is doing by formatting tables and filling them up with data mined from a database that doing whatever you can to simplify that process is a good thing.

The last effort I put into making a navigation bar turned out rather nice: http://www.swo.com/paintball/ - it's by no means a fit for all uses, and I don't have a forum on there but it's pretty lightweight and looks ok. I'd put a screencap in but it wouldn't fit well. The bulk of the work is done in the css file.

Resurgence in people here means I'll likely upgrade to phpbb3 in the near future. That means this forum template will go the way of the do-do as there is no updated version of it. I'd kinda like to keep with a dark default theme.

Go and check some out here and let me know if any jump out.

Only one I've found I like so far is Melankolia. Also if you click on the StylesDemo link it will take you to a live demo with dropdown list to change styles.
