PHP BB

#1 Post by danielh41 » Thu Jan 03, 2008 2:02 pm

Are we stuck with that PHP BB creating communities logo in the upper left corner, or can we replace that with something more creative (and bored-related)?

I think it's possible to change it. Tubadave mentioned looking into that in October, but I don't think he got a round tuit.

It would be extremely easy to change that, but since it was fairly low on the priority list, and since I've been busy getting my butt kicked by the holiday season, I haven't had much chance to look at it.

I'm open to any ideas (or, better yet, actual pictures) for replacing it, though.

Anything replacing the PHP logo would have to be the same size image, or the Bored view would be intolerable....

That's what Photoshop is for. :)

The photos of the raspberries are nice, but if you're going to change the logo, dare I suggest something more "on-topic"? 8)

I presume the raspberries reflect the proposed nickname of the bored as the raspberry bored which is itself reflecting the sign it is intended to replace.

Don't know that the nickname has really caught on yet but that is up to "history" to decide. And here history usually means what lb decides to call it in the historical record...
