ThemeHouse says they’re ready to schedule the upgrade and finalize the style now, and I think I’m ready to go ahead and get this done as well. I know a few of us had objections to the color scheme, but that’s why we will be introducing multiple styles for our members to use.

It also looks like we are not going to shy away from using the addons from DragonByte. While I am appalled by the actions of the owners of that company, there are literally no alternatives on XenForo 2.1. They’ve also shown a good track record of consistently updating these addons, which is definitely something we want to keep in mind for the future.

We can get this conversion done this week.

Great to hear @Cam will the theme have the similar style to old FP Red and Blue ? Hints on the color schemes?

I'm happy to hear that progress has been made. Still a shame that no other developer has come forth to work on a credits mod for Xenforo yet. (Though the issues with Dragobyte did happen quite recently...) I don't see anything wrong with the theme, I think it looks fine btw. :)

I think it's nice! Wish the post avatars and the avatar next to the reply text area were switched, though.

Can we bump the logo in the header down about 8px? It's slightly off-center from the tail on the chat bubble.

CSS:
.p-header {
    padding-top: 18px;
    padding-bottom: 10px;
}

Also, the labels for threads have the same styles as the thread title, and they're blending in. I keep trying to click on the label lmao

We've finished updating to XF 2.1. :) Hope it hasn't been too much of a pain for everyone watching us update things. :)

The Avatars should be bigger, and I think the logo location has been fixed. I have also updated the Credit Shop to include everything in the user shops upgrade thread, except for the Domain part of it. Going to let Cameron take a look at that to see if he wants that included in the credit shop.

Also, look forward to being able to purchase the packages for the Posting Packages Service real soon, as we finalize the permissions for the package items!

Awesome to see a change (in the looks). :cool: Anyway, still need to re-implement the credits and reactions stuff.
The Credits have already been credited. :) What you had before the upgrade was given back to everyone.
