    Need the community opinion on a new theme Link to this post

    My name is João Alves and I'm adapting the amazing iTheme by http://www.ndesign-studio.com/ to the SilverStripe CMS.

    Here's a screenshot:

    The main content area is 545px wide and the forum content is usually larger than that (760px).

    My question is how could I adapt the design to the forum module?

    Do you think I should reduce the size of the forum elements, expande the main content area or that any other action?

    Please tell me what you think. Your opinion is very important.

    In my opinion, you should decrease the modules width - using smaller fonts should look great!
    (thanks to Will I'm a big fan of 0.8em size and anything that is less than 12px ;) )

    I was recently making themes which had even less space for a forum so I can tell that a thinner forum is ok. I think that extending the layout itself would be a mistake.

    I'm looking forward to your theme, it looks awesome for me!!

    Thank you for your opinion Wojtek!

    I'll try it out. I'm sure it'll look just great if I follow your indications.
