WoWMoonclaw01 / WoWMoonclaw


"WoWMoonclaw01" for phpBB was first developped around June 2005 for my former guild forum on EU-Sinstralis and for the pre-official forum server "sinstralis.net". The goal was to create something efficient and restrained at the same time, and technically staying as close as possible to phpBB's default template. Some people asked me where they could get it, that's why I got the idea to make it widely available (around September 2005). I also wanted an URL more appropriate to World of Warcraft content than the one of my old web site, and that's why I created wowcr.net.

In late October 2005 (or November I don't remember well), Ssirul, one of the leaders (and webmaster) of <Empire> guilde, contacted me to say that they had installed this template on their forum and that they had used it to make a similar skin for their EQdkp (which they use as front page of their site too) look as the forum. I got the idea to distirbute an assorted EQdkp template along with the phpBB template and I've recreated it, based on Ssirul's EQdkp style settings.

Around that period, "WoWMoonclaw01" became a worldwide reference as the most installed World of Warcraft phpBB template (taking the place of "DGF_wow").

In June 2007, with the phpBB 3 version, the template's name was change to "WoWMoonclaw".

WoWMaevahEmpire


Around December 2005, I was regularly raiding with <Empire> guild. One day, while we were joking on TeamSpeak, someone said something like "Hey why do we have to have the same forum as every other guilds out there ? Why don't you create a new template just for us so we would have a unique forum ?" I understood it was a joke, but that gave me inspiration anyway. So I've created a new theme "WoWMaevahEmpire" (which means "World of Warcraft template created by Maëvah for Empire" and nothing else) (for both phpBB and EQdkp). A few month later, we separated our ways and the theme is not an exclusivity for <Empire> anymore.

(At the time I was in the guild I've developped a few EQdkp mods too, optionnally included in the EQdkp templates, one shows attendancy columns in the roster, one generates frames around images (some of which I've used on this site), the last one is allows you to improve the layout of the news (such a making the images float right ou left from the text), but that one is only a beta version because I had different results in Firefox and Internet Explorer in some cases and never finished to correct it. Actually it works "most of the time, but not all the time", so you have to check what you do ...).



Downloads

About versioning: since some time, the first three numbers of WoWMoonclaw/WoWMaevahEmpire version numbers are the copy of the phpBB version they target. Regarding the last number: odd numbers (ex: 30.0.11.1) indicate a release that has be submitted to the phpBB Styles Team and if you find it online here, it means that it has been validated. Even numbers including zero (ex: 30.0.11.0) indicate a wowcr.net release put online immediately while awaiting for the phpBB Styles Team validated release. Usually there are very few differences between wowcr.net's immediate release and phpBB valited release.

- phpBB2 and phpBB3 templates include English, French, German and Spanish image sets.
- About a phpBB3 proSilver based version, maybe I'll release this someday ... maybe not ... For now I really don't have time to work on it.
- * If some styles do not comply with all W3C standards (phpBB2 templates and CSS for exemple), it's because the original default template wasn't valid either.
