Copy code above
Install 'Greasemonkey' add on for Firefox/Chrome
Click icon in top right of broswer
New user script
Use script from clipboard
Then save it and you're good to go :thumbup:

Trader :toppa: (and Trig etc.) This thread should be stickied really, the only thing I'd complain about now is the blank space at the bottom of posts.

Nice one, looking much better now. If Trigger makes updates to his script will ours automatically update, or do we need to get it ourselves?

Forum Tech Boffins :adore: :toppa:

As previously said, all that needs to be fixed (forum server side, rather than anything we can do) is the 'view your posts' page being consistently there, rather than one thread or topic

I've done this and it seems to be in my greasemonkey enabled, but I cannot see anything in my top right corner :(

EDIT - Just needed to click on the monkeys face to enable it :picard:

Thing is, doesn't the default phpbb install come with a few theme options? They've clearly disabled our ability to choose a theme :(

I'm not too bothered though - I can use stylish at home and work :thumbup:

I'm all for these mods from as aesthetic perspective, as the new forum looks shit, but do we really all still have jobs where this would get us sacked? :uhoh:
