new phpBB theme

Postby pskink » Mon May 17, 2010 8:03 pm

hi,

today i discovered new phpBB theme. i'm not quite sure whether its nicer then old one: t's a matter of taste

however what i *really* hate is that every page is more than 250kB in length

come on guys why is so? we are here talking about android which is mobile device and there are ppl who access that site from their mobiles. can you optimize your phpBB output or at least add mobile version?

thanks

I feel lost with this new format. The old format, IMHO, was easier to read. Now I feel like I have tunnel vision. I can't see the forest for the trees if you know what I mean.

Thanks.

i know your pain...

but as i said, more important is that on opera mini every page is longer than 250kB and from that reason i'll not be able to use this site from my mobile...

Just took a quick peek and styles/dark-grunge/theme/images/Page-BgGlare.png is 115KB and styles/dark-grunge/theme/images/header.png is 75KB maybe with the right JPEG compression a lot of bandwidth can be saved :).

90% of that huge size are .pngs images that cannot be replaced by .jpgs or .gifs since they have transparency alpha channel

For now you can swap to another style in your User Control Panel, that is the same as the current one, except it doesn't have the two mobile-unfriendly pngs in the header/background.

I guess a lighter theme would be better.
