  • VanillaForums.org (old blue)
    The VanillaForums.org theme is what we used to use over at (you guessed it) VanillaForums.org. It's a great example of what it takes to edit a master view to match (or become) your site. Be sure to check out the hooks.php file, which we use to add recent activities to the discussions page.

    The Flickrizer allows users to add thumbnails from their Flickr account to their Vanilla account profile. Update I changed the flickrizer so that instead of using the flickr feed url, it uses the id portion of the url only. This was done to prevent the extension from being used in an exploit. Her…
