Hello everyone! Over the next minutes, we will upgrade most of the forum themes to support HTML5  (currently supports XHTML 4.01). The upgrade will cover all forum themes except for Ptifo.

So far, we only have the admin pannel working with HTML5 as a testing playground since February 14th, and it seems to be fully functional.

Unfortunately, updating HTML to 5 is not just a number. It deprecates several features used in older HTML versions, which forced me to make a massive change on the code. So, there is a high risk of something going wrong during the initial moments when the upgrade occurs. Be patient. If something wrong happens, first refresh your browser with CTRL + F5. Then, if the problem persists, take a screenshot and post here. If the situation is critical enough not to allow you to post in the forums, contact me on Discord.

It is possible that Ptifo might have one or other problem during the process, but it shouldn't harm the forum browsing experience at all.

For those wondering why didn't I do it before, I was under the wrong assumption that HTML5 deprecated tables. Once I realized they are still supported by HTML5, which was at the beggining of this month, I started working on this upgrade.

Anyway, I do apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause, but it will allow us to use more modern HTML5 features in the forum. It is hard to see a browser that doesn't support HTML5 nowadays.

HTML5 is online now for Digital Twilight, Subsilver, Coldsteel and Twisted Insurrection themes. I've tested it so far with Digital Twilight only. It seems to be doing OK. I've fixed a bunch of bugs so far. There are few bits that are changed from the XHTML 4.01, but nothing that looks too odd.

Everything has a lot more whitespace but the font is unreasonably small... can we get a proper font scaling please?

I've increased the font size at the Digital Twilight theme.

I've also fixed a bunch of problems on SubSilver, Twisted Insurrection and Cold Steel themes.

What's causing this gap?

The forum description was causing the gap. It wasn't an issue with any forum theme. I've fixed the problem and, to be honest, removed the PPM link because it was useless.
