Mine is the styling of code. It looks so damn tasty like this!

    It's handling of discussions The lack of huge, overdone 3d graphics/backgrounds No signatures/huge avatars The extensibility of it (was so incredibly sick of adding mods to phpbb...) Lack of focus on user rank/post count/etc. ...and a bunch of other reasons which I can't identify at the moment.

    Oi! You're only allowed to choose one! "favourite part" not "parts"

    Oh, oops. Ok, then, I'll wrap them all up in a really vague description: It's approach to handling and displaying information, both from the perspective of a developer and an end-user.
  • Just plain board, nothing more.

    Uh oh. I think sirnot might not like the new panelfade I put in 0.9.3. *ducks*
  • Do you have a screenshot of this "panelfade"?
  • MarkMark Vanilla Staff
  • yeah you really went overboard on the 3-d there bub.

    looks sweet!
  • oops forgot to mention my favorite part about vanilla.

    would probably be the save search function.
  • i'll have to say i love just the simplistic, clean feel to everything... from the control panel to the forums themselves. i've been getting fed up with all the clunky table-based boards, and it's nice and refreshing to see a CSS based forum that's so easy to integrate and mod how you want it.

    The nearly idiot-proof install i'd have to say is the bestest part. :)
  • I would have to say the clean and modern HTML code it generates. It's a dream to style.
  • i love it for its simplicity. huuuuuuge thanks for making such a brilliant forum!
  • I'll agree that it is quite simplistic when it comes to the markup and it's presentation. Also, the handheld CSS is also a nice touch. (But, where's the print CSS?)
  • lechlech Chicagoland
    you would need to be crazy to want to print any of this nonsense! :D
  • it's concept
  • MarkMark Vanilla Staff
    If anyone wants to make a print.css, I'd be happy to include it with the release. Seriously.
  • If I have a spare afternoon over winter break, I'll make one.
  • I would still love to see a fully mobile compatible version of Vanilla that I could use on my symbian phone... it does kindof work at the moment but with a little tweaking it could be pretty sweet?

  • my favourite part of Vanilla is mark ;) lol... my favourite part is the focus on discussions rather than pointless features.
