Forum Theme


Developer theme for the ExpressionEngine 2.0 Discussion Forum module.

Scaffold is the result of the painstaking removal of erroneous markup from the theme view files, to give you the developer leaner html and more css hooks to style the forum to how you want it.

Finding the view file you’re after is much faster than digging through the default themes as unique IDs have been assigned to key wrapper elements. A quick search will get you the file you’re looking for.

This is great but it would be invaluable if it could make the forum responsive. There is a huge need for this for the EE forum and it seems as if EllisLab has dropped the ball on this one. I can’t think of anyone better suited to doing this than iain.

The only thing that could make this theme any better is if the template pieces, out of the box, were commented (e.g. “<!—begin header—>”) so it would be easier to tell by looking at the page source which of the highly modularized Discussion Forum “pieces” do what.

In response to @simoncox: the 1.0 commercial version is different from the open version I had on GitHub previously. All the remaining view files have indeed been rewritten in this commercial version.

I’ve made the best looking EE forum ever thanks to this. Still took a little time, but the starting point is just soooooo much better. Totally worth the $.

This is a must have if you need to use EE forums. It’s a great starting point and I really appreciate the work thats gone into this but version 1.0 does leave you sorting out a few final bits of erroneous mark up. Having said that I will never build a forum again without Scaffold! Brilliant!

Bravo IaIn!  Modern, flexible theme starter.

Next we need a SINGLE EE and Discussion Forum membership sign-in interface.

Seriously if you ever need to touch the EE forums this will save you huge amounts of time. It won’t take the pain away, but it will ease it ;-)
