Amazing work Mr. Stormshadow! You rock.

You made a way nicer and handier forum look and feel in your free time then the "pros" at CCP managed in god knows how long.

You wouldn't happen to feel like designing a new UI for EVE, would you? Blink

im little confused, you say stylesheet, but the thing on userstyles.org is a javascript injecting stylesheet instead of .css file

btw, that .js doesnt ork under opera :( but thats not your fault, you wrote it for FF
Tippias CSS file works flawlessly tho.

Wish someone did something to those stupid tooltips when you hover over channel names/threads

Final build is out. Source is cleaned and commented now so custom tweaking should be much easier.

Now it is time for me to start focusing on other projects again so I just leave this here... :)

Another reminder that I'm really happy if people find use for this style as a whole or as a base for their custom tweaks. Modifying it is preferctly ok and recommended if preferred to do so. If you want to share your custom mods in this thread or somewhere else, even better.

ah, so its the userstyles.org, they just cant live without meddling in peoples business :/
There is no way to simply download CSS file from there, only thru plugin or http://userstyles.org/styles/userjs/46285/Eve%20Online%20Classic%20Forums%20Style%20(Alezra%26Grey).user.js this
would be nice if there was a way to just grab CSS file

edit:
ah, found it in html source

Being a css nublet I'm having some difficulty getting this to work right with Opera.

Removing all the "@-moz*" lines is a step in the right direction, however many parts don't match the way it displays with the FF and Chrome versions or is simply glitched.

If anyone gets it working right in Opera post it here and I'll give you a cookie.

That or you could just press the "show code" button in this page and copy paste the entire thing to (for example) notepad.

The direct installer in the site works only with stylish plugin and it is available only for firefox and chrome atm. However I'm sure there is similiar plugins or functionality in most other browsers too.

edit: Note to CCP forum developer - your parser has issues with Percent-characters.

Most likely because moz lines divide the code to sections and not all styles should be applied to all forums pages, even some of them do.

- Stuff under domain section should affect every url containing "forums.eveonline.com" (global styles).
- Stuff under "posts writing page" should affect _only_ urls starting with "https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=postmessage".
- Stuff under "posts reading page" should affect _only_ urls starting with "https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts".
- Stuff under "favorites page" should affect _only_ urls starting with "https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=mytopics".

Obviously stylish plugin handles this with the moz commands included in the source. I'm sure there is similiar functionality for other browsers/programs, but perhaps some manual tweaking or splitting the source to 4 parts will be needed.

I'm sure some Opera/stylesheet guru will pop up soonish and help you out more than I could :)

just use the file Tippias posted earlier http://eve.beyondreality.se/files/EVEForum.css , I like it better than the Greys one (less spaces between posts),
Works fine for me (opera)

dont see "show code" button anywhere, thats why i was confused, all i could find initially was CSS badly wrapped into javascript (that didnt work), probably automagically generated by the site when it saw by browser ID.

Thats the thing, Opera doesnt need plugins, you just drop CSS and it works.

What I would LOOOve to see next is some greasemonkey magic that disables
-forum refreshing in the background every minute, probly gay ajax
-javascript in input boxes when writing messages.

I feel appropriate to express my gratitude towards all the kind words and the donations what many of you have been sending.
They have been noticed and I'm really grateful even those were something I was not expecting to get.
Big thank you to everyone. You know who you are.
