Default New 'This Way' skin

After many requests, mostly from Gary (itbethatway ) we have created a new This Way style to add to the list of styles already available for your selection.

It took a long time, some late nights and a lot of tweaking but it's done now.

To select the style, scroll down to the bottom of any screen and on the left hand side, from the drop down list, you can choose the This Way style.

If you like it and wish for it to be your main style, please do the following:
  • Go to your User CP
  • Click on Edit Options
  • Scroll to the bottom where it says "Forum Skin"
  • Select "This Way Style"
  • Click Save Changes
The This Way skin will now be your default skin.

This is also the case for any of the other skins that are currently available should you choose to change.

Down the line, I would like to create a skin for 'Pieces of You', 'Spirit' and '0304'.

If you experience any problems with the new skin, please let me know and if you have any suggestions, please feel free to share them as all are welcome.

Thanks
Kiera
JKF Admin

Special thanks to Kyle for his help with some graphics on the skin and thanks too to the mods for your opinions while tweaking it!

I agree. It looks really nice. I'm gonna stick with the flower skin personally, but the new one fits too.

It is a big change and it takes time to get used to it. But I'm using it now. I love it.

Well you're all welcome. The good thing is, you don't have to like it. If you prefer the flower skin or the GAIW skin then you can choose them instead. We like that we are able to bring you choice.

Must be a problem with your cookies! It works fine for me. It makes no difference that I am an admin.

Anyone else having this problem?

Ok well I guess it doesn't stick until I log in... cause today it was the flower skin when I clicked on my bookmark and opened the page but after I logged in it became the This Way skin. Is that how it's supposed to work? Either way great work Kiera, I really do love and appreciate the skin.
