TC has been around a couple of years now, and has a reasonably active membership.  The forum is mainly for writers and readers, though there are areas for poets, cartoon strips and artists as well as the usual random zones.

I've just recently cut over to SMF2RC3 from SMF1.1.11 and haven't figured out how to modify the theme yet, so it's still fairly standard SMF2 Curve.

Previously I had EZPortal, which is quite good, but after upgrading to RC2 I had some issues, and finally switched to TP, which I'm happy with.


All themes that worked fine with SMF 1.1.11 require edits to work with SMF 2.0 RC3.  There are tutorials and help files over at SMF that will help you to convert your theme to work with SMF 2.0 but the best way is to find out if your theme has already been converted.  If it hasn't, it might be time to look for another theme that is designed specifically for SMF 2.0



I tend to modify the graphics myself.  With the old SMF1.1 I knew which files to change, and where things were in the CSS file, but the new SMF2 seems to put most of the basic graphics in one file, from what I can see from the brief look I've had so far.  I didn't really package my changes as a 'theme' as such tho.

I've not really got around to fiddling with this aspect properly on 2 yet, which is why it's still as it is.  ::)
