It's at the bottom of the Board INdex page

Assuming you mean
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styles-2?start=96
and not specifically
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/latte/demo/3.1

"Rain Forest" has the brown, but it also has the "Rain Forest" branding.
Then again, most of them have some sort of branding.
And it's the only one I saw with a brown that matched the Mystery Manor homepage.

"Softwood" is a lighter brown, but "doesn't meet licensing guidelines" (whatever that means)
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/softwood/
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/down ... ?mode=view

"Celtic Dreams" isn't the right color brown, though I like the Art Nouveau decor.

And it doesn't match the brown color, but I like "Jardin Technologique."

By the way, "Reply with Quote" and "Edit this Post" are showing up awfully close to "Report this Post" and I can easily see posts being "reported" by accident. Are those buttons showing up so close together for everyone?

The templates you listed all are for 3.0. We are on 3.1 and the 3.0 templates won't work. This is why I can't bring the old templates back. Look at the 3.1 templates.

The link is in Ghostlady's first post in this thread. The one you posted but said, ".. not specifically this one" is the correct link to demo the different skins.

The more I use it, the better I like that little notification bell on the upper right!

And the envelope next to it tells you that there is still a PM in your outbox - thats cool.

Oops. Didn't realize they weren't for the current board version.
No brown themes that match then. :(
You've already copied over the best ones for 3.1.

The closest one I found was Latte. It is just not full page. I may email the creator and ask if he would do a full page for Latte. There is also a Latte Red that you can select. That is the one that I am using. Highlights red instead of the green.

I chose Latte Red because it was easier on my eyes, but never noticed until I read your post just now that it was full screen. Thank you!

Fingers crossed that you can get the Regular Latte to work in full screen - I find that template the most soothing for me.
