I've been searching for a good couple of hours now and I haven't found a single good MyBB theme that I personally like - that's both free and premium themes.

Is it just me?

Why don't you find one close to what you like and alter it to suit?

Yeah, none of them really appeal to me. Furthermore, I'm not interested in paying for a theme =)

Or try building your own? I'm scripting my own for my next project as well since i don't like any of the free themes either. Plus it gives your forum a special touch that a standard theme won't give :)

Creating a custom theme isn't a bad idea, though I'm not creative, so I wouldn't know where to start =P

There are many tutorials available around the net so that you can make custom theme on your own.

I had the same problem. I wanted to create myself a custom theme, but design just isn't my strongest point (especially graphics).

I got the Audentio theme when there was a 50% off sale, so I got 3 colors for $12.

Those Audentio themes are pretty awesome. I might try and create my own theme, then if that all goes wrong, buy one from Audentio and customise. I have basic knowledge of HTML and CSS, so I guess attempting to build my own theme would be a great way to develop my skills.

Ah, so you're looking to find something really nice looking and free. That's becoming harder and harder to do these days. But there are some good values out there, but great and free is a tall order.

Is 2.0 still at least a year and a half away? I know 2.0 has been talked about for over a yearm or so now. But now we're waiting on 1.8 in the mean time, and there's still not a solid estimate on 1.8's release, right?

Yeah it is still going to be a long time until 2.0 and 1.8 will be a while but they are major updates so I am fine with the wait.

myBB has been setting out the next major version every two years thus 1.8 will be this year and 2.0 next year.
