Have you ever got into theming using custom CSS ? In WordPress or blogs or forums ?

How did it go ? Was it flexible and beautiful as you intended ? Personally, I think it is much easier to theme using CSS when tools like _Developer Tools_ are available in browsers.

All the time. How do you think this forum looks a bit more beautiful that core Flarum ? It is CSS themed. Luckily it is comparatively easy to do so with Flarum.

These days, almost all software allows you to use custom CSS.

Then it is awesome. I would like to do these too. There is a tag layout too, right ? You can add icons to it if you want. I am not sure how.

If you want, we can switch to that. This is just the default layout. I need to check whether we can add icons to it.

I have seen your website. Great work. It is easy to play with white and colours. But when it comes to black, white and greys, you could really spoil the whole art.

Both website and forum has a very pleasing tone of grey and black.

@Abhi Not something I dabble in as such. The images are from Stock Photo Secrets, for which I have a subscription.

I see. I am no pro either. But if something small, you can always ask here. :)
