Alternate stylesheets for LinuxPakistan forum

Postby Muhammad Saad » Sat Mar 21, 2009 7:31 pm

Assalam-o-Alaikum,

I am going to work on adding alternate stylesheets to phpBB so that LinuxPakistan members can read both English and Urdu text conveniently. (I don't know PHP currently so it might take some time.)
For this purpose, I will need the exact version of phpBB that is being used here.
If some administrator reads this, please send me the package so that I can experiment with it.

This information can not be given in public. I hope you got an email from Tariq Bahi.

Best Regards.

It was easier than I thought in the beginning. I have successfully integrated alternate stylesheets in the subsilver2 theme for phpBB3 just a few moments ago. :D
So now, (on my local test installation of phpBB) I can switch the document font from "View > Page Styles" in Firefox.

Once that is done here on LinuxPakistan forum, members will be able to switch the font to Nafees Web Naskh easily when they have to read Urdu text. While the default font will be the same as it is now. So they will not have any problem at all in reading English text.
