Hi! I want to tell all K-m users that all my themes are updated to 0.9 and they will now work with the newest builds of K-meleon. Just download and use.

Hi Again! Jsnj I hope that you wouldn't get angry if I borrow some stuff from your K.A.N.T. theme to finish a theme that I'm working on. Your bookmarks and favorites bars is perfect in the theme that i'm working on. So please don't get angry with me.

Yours: Rapido

Hi! JSNJ if you read this I wish to tell you that i didn't use your images. I made my own to the theme or skin i'm working on so you can relax.

Rapido,

So, which of your new themes are your favorites and which of all the various old themes sitting around do you think should get updated to work with KM 1.0?

ianko,

K-Meleon 1.0 comes with only 3 themes: Phoenity, Phoenity (large) and Klassic.

Go to Main Menu: Click on Edit/Preferences. Look down the screen for a dialog box that say SKINS, then click on your choice out of the 3 available skins. When next you start up KM, you'll be using the new skin.

With any luck, work will now start on upgrading some of the many, many older skins to work with KM 1.0 in addition to KM 0.9.

Hi! ndebord! About your question my favorite theme I must say is the Opera Dream and Meleotech along with the old Polymer. Polymer has a special place for me since it was one of my first theme that I thought looked great for me. I think that theese three along with Christmas Grinch theme should be the ones to be the first to be updated to K-m 1.0 and at the end I hope that all my themes will be updated as well.

Yours: Rapido

Rapido,

All 3 are worth upgrading. Meleotech reminds me slightly of Early Blue, but much more high tech than the minimalist feel of that original Mozilla Theme that they dropped in favor of their more traditional and I might add, boring theme. And talking of minimalist, that is the essense of Polymer imo (as you can see, I like minimalism). OperaDream is a pretty and functional adaptation of icons that work very nicely together in a pleasing color scheme.

It would be nice to see all the themes reborn for KM 1.0. Nostalgia makes me want to see Eyes Only themes done right at the top of the list, sort of as an homage to his earlier work.

But as I look through the Wiki, I see that our little group is responsibile for creating a very beautiful collection of themes that really deserve to see the light of day yet again!

I think that we should offer some themes for K-Meleon 1.0
as soon as possible.
Some of the themes for 0.9 could work, and would only
have to get a new toolbars.cfg with different macro links.
Early Blue for example had all the necessary buttons.
I do not know if Al does not want to have it in K-Meleon
anymore, as he removed it from the Wiki.
To adapt some older themes within a short time without
much work, they could be completed with the unobtrusive
privacy bar of the classic theme, and then a new toolbars.cfg.
Some of the Mozilla themes would be welcome, as
Orbit, Pinball or Modern. Skypilot is possibly too difficult
to reproduce. Krome and Kute are also good.
Thanks to Rapido for his work.

Fred,

I did not follow the internal discussion on themes in the Wiki and since I don't develop themes don't think it my place to say what should be there or not.

The way I see it, you and others are better qualified to figure out which themes can be upgraded and I hope than can be done, so we can present more than just Phoenity and Klassic.

Personally I think Kute is a very, very nice theme, although, I hasten to add, that my heart belongs to Early Blue!
