How about adding to the forum make it abit more professional looking by adding in a bootstrap template? might bring in peeps when they see how much of an effort we put into our site ect?

Oh to have some eye candy would be nice!

Problem with the above template is, that its designed for static / html based websites.

This is a forum based framework.. that sort of stuff doesn't really mix.

For example, take boards.ie / askaboutmoney.com / foot.ie ...
They all share a similar design and flow.. forum based frameworks.

Believe me, If I could make this prettier I would.. In fact, If you look at Simple Machines.. you'll see how ugly this software really is naked until you dress it up!

 
But if you're really bored.. you can have a look at the changelog for the forum to see what I have been doing in the background..

The more suggestions the better! It's a community site, not a one man band!

I'll have to review the site's look at some stage and see if there is a splice/merge option I can do.

If you find any more interesting templates on your travels on the net..throw them up here... I can certainly look and see if it can be used or not!


*Edit: I can no do gramma
