Coming up within the next 3 months or so is the planned release of SummitPost Version 4. I plan on making another thread sometime down the road regarding other changes. So with that in mind, the idea of profile themes is on the consideration list. If implemented, it would allow the user to select the theme (template styling) of their profile. The profile is the most personal part of the site hence what I believe has the right to have it's own unique look and feel. Profile themes would not effect the rest of the site.
Right now there are three themes. Simple, Semi Styled, and Dark.
Plain is pretty much the same as it currently is as seen here:
Semi Styled has some Styling additions to it to make it not too styled but has some elements that make the content pop out better:
And finally the dark theme:
In the screen shot above, the dark theme has a blue color (gradient) on hover which makes it easier readable and it looks nice.
Another advantage to the dark theme is that it strives for style and simplicity. Notice how the links don't feel overwhelming? (or at least feels like less clutter than the original) But again, I understand people's desire for simple styling which is why I believe people should have the freedom to choose.
So in this thread feel free to voice your opinion regarding this. We want to hear what other think of this, whether it be suggestions, likes, dislikes, ect.
