Compatibility testing of Elevenfour’s styles for WoltLab Suite 5.4 RC 2 finished today. Some styles didn’t need changes, others received minor changes to their templates. So far everything has been exported and packages are packed. As soon as WoltLab releases the final version of WoltLab Suite 5.4 I’ll test the installation and upgrade process. If that was successfull I’ll release the updated styles.
Yesterday I began working on a new style for WoltLab Suite 5.2 that will be released some time later. Plano will be yet another style that features style options although that’s not yet finally decided. At this very moment I can only show you a screenshot of the board list (which is the landing page of the forum) since that’s the only thing that’s nearly finished.Continue reading “Plano – A New Style For WoltLab Suite”

Reading Time: < 1 minuteToday, I created the first version of Viento 3.0 for WoltLab Suite 3.0.
Viento is a style family based on the colors of colors of Google’s Material Design. The style is very light weight with only a few (S)CSS modifications since the goal of this style is to prove that it’s easy to create a good looking style for WoltLab Suite 3.0 without having to write a lot of (S)CSS.

Back in 2008 I created a style which has become the most downloaded style on Elevenfour in 2016 – the X-Style. Since 2008 this style has seen three redesigns. To be honest: I never expected that the style could be a success like this. So when announcing that I would design styles for WoltLab Suite the X-Style was set to be adapted for WoltLab Suite right from the beginning.
One of the main goals of the latest redesign (X-Style 4.1) was to modernize the style and make it more future prove. And if you look at the dark versions: the design looks great. But I’m not happy with the white versions.Continue reading “The future of the X-Style”
Reading Time: 2 minutesA few days ago WoltLab set WoltLab Suite 3.0, the successor of WoltLab Community Framework 2.1, live on https://beta.woltlab.com and people could test the new software online. Opinions differ with regard to the design. I’m not a big fan of it, too. But I know how to change the styles and here are some impressions of what I came up with.

Reading Time: 4 minutesWhile supporting the X-Style in November last year I realized, that some design decisions made with the X-Style could cause issues again and again in future times. The reason? X-Style has once been designed for Burning Board 3.1 (WBB 3.1) and was adapted to WBB 4.1. Which, at the end, didn’t work out as planned. Continue reading “Redesigning The X-Style”
