I'll answer your question and lay out a the basic roadmap for the future. To answer your question you can't at the moment, but this software provides the ability to apply different themes either by you or I can force a choice. I don't have any other themes installed at the moment so there isn't any choice. I can even apply different themes to different sub sections which I'll get to in moment. I've been using this style with the avatar on the left on another forum and it grows on you, I didn't like it at first either but prefer it now.
In the near future I'm expanding into other forums to hopefully attract people with other interests. This was actually the plan many years ago when I originally started this forum, some of the earliest members will remember that this only had only a singe section for anthracite questions but I didn't have the people to support a larger forum and that was the only section that was used so I dumped them.
For example the Other interest section is going to be split off into another subsection from the Anthracite forum. In other words there will be a main page and from there you will be able to go to the Anthracite Forum, Home & Garden, Clubs etc Each sub section can and will have it's own theme to provide a visual cue as to where you are at, the Anthracite Forum will be themed similar to the old one. The key here is they will all have the same login. In addition I'll be providing a basic theme similar to the old one that can be used, you'll be able to switch this in your profile. I'll also be providing one specifically tailored for cell phones and other small devices. This new software offers me lots of things I couldn't do previously but it will take time to get it all integrated
In addition to the new forums I'll also be adding a file gallery as well for hosting images, video, or other files. Games is another thing etc... A lot of things.
Now understandably some may have concern as I know some people don't like change, overall though the functionality which isn't much different than the old one will remain the same . These additional features and forums will practically be completely separate but very easy to utilize for those that want too because they will have the same login.
