Like almost any large forum, XDA allows its users to select from a variety of forum themes. The current XDA 2013 Beta theme is default, and features many new features compared to previous versions. However, the older XDA 2010 theme still has plenty of users who love its simplicity and appearance, or simply are nostalgic.
XDA Forum Moderator GermainZ, who created a dark user style we talked about a few months ago, modified the XDA 2013 Beta – 1024 theme to look very similar to the 2010 theme. The big advantage of this is that all the new features from the new theme such as DevDB are still available. The list of themed elements includes fonts and all colors. It’s the perfect solution for more sentimental users of XDA Developers.
To use this theme, Stylish or another similar browser extension is required. All you need to do is to download the script from the database and apply it to the site. It won’t affect other websites and can be used safely. If you miss the old days of the 2010 theme but want to use the newest XDA features, go to the original thread and learn more.
Please note: This is not an official XDA Developers site theme. Using something like this has the potential to conflict with features of the site. In case of any problems simply disable the user style and revert to the official theme.
