Author NoteHello ladies and gentlemen! Being a web developer with more than two years hands-on experience in front-end development (after carefully analyzing the open source bulletin board systems) I decided to begin on the journey of providing professional theming solutions for phpBB. Those of you who are aware that phpBB is the most popular open source bulletin board system in the world may well agree that in spite of its ever increasing number of features, there’s still room for a lot of improvement. Eles was started just for that – to speed up the modernization of phpBB forums. The two main development guidelines for Eles and coreframe are:
- Improve the visual experience of phpBB while not reducing performance, and where possible improve the performance.
- Facilitate compatibility with newer versions and third party extensions by using the best practices to develop a style for phpBB.
CoreframeCoreframe is a secure and powerful admin extension that integrates with phpBB3.1 and the Eles theme to get your forum customization experience to the next level. All customization options available via the coreframe extension:
E.g. Google Analytics tracking code.
