Go to Profile -> Account Settings, then hover over the "Modify Profile" button to reach the Look and Layout section; you can change the forum theme there.
Personally I'm going to stick with the old standard theme - this new one is a little too spread out for my liking.
Because it's a bunch of extra clutter that is completely irrelevant to what you're doing. Keep in mind that this mess shows up on every, single, page.
If anything this just further highlights the problems, as it starts eating up space from the given page you're actually interested in being on.
Honestly I was kind of excited when I saw the update, but if anything I feel the website is worse than before. A showcase of recently added content seems pointless, since we have regular news posts to that. But I can't help but agree what having some extra visibility to old content on the site is great. But the amount of space allocated to that should be a reasonable amount, and preferably restricted to the front page. If I'm a search page or an article chances are I already know or have an idea of what I'm looking for, no need to barf out unrelated content at me that eats up screen space (and page load time/bandwidth, what with the extra images).
I looked numerous times last night and just looked today. I couldn't find anything to change the theme for the main site.
Same here. I like the new layout of the main site and forum but when I select the Metroid theme the forum has the old layout and the main site is unchanged. The new layout with the Metroid theme colors would be cool enough for me.
I'm using Firefox and Windows 7 and the main page does not have the menu on the left side.
EDIT: I even cleared my browser history and reloaded the page but it still did not appear.
I (and I think a couple people before me) figured it out. The updated site, on the default theme, requires users to have a display with greater than 1366 px (which is my laptop's maximum display width) to see the left sidebar. Alternately, zooming out to 90% in Google Chrome seemed to do it, for me. Changing the theme from RNDH Boss to RNDH Pro changed the site back to what it was before, but for those who are curious, yes, the Metroid theme is still there and fully-compatible with the new HTML5/CSS3 backend! At least, as far as I can tell.
So... yeah! The new theme is not exactly ideal and I would have gotten used to it, but I'm infinitely happy that I don't even have to! Yay!
Edit: Changing the site theme also changes the forum theme, just like always. (You can still set the forum theme independently of the site theme, though.)
Oh, thanks. Thankfully, there are actually two ways to edit the themes both on the homepage and all related page types plus the drop-down menu over the modify profile button in the forum for the whole forum and your profile. Hmm.
I kinda liked the new design at first, including the extra updates and screenshots on the right panes. But... I do not like the too light blue background in all text boxes behind the news posts and ALL patch/hack pages. It's just too bright for my eyes, not enough contrast there. Also to make matters worse the outer white background around the inner frames/boxes just further exacerbates the problem. Also the lack of contrast in the rows with lines in the credit lists everywhere makes it that much harder to follow who did what on their works.
So yeah, I completely went back to the old RHDN Pro theme for the general website and the same one in my forum, although i may change the latter if I don't mind it or there are some improvements to be made.
After reading some of the new ideas for this site, yeah, I would like for the ability to search for/catch a ready username to be much easier when editing the credits in a file page.
