Your Guide to Using the Tessellate Style for phpBB.


Tessellate is a sharp, elegant and refined style. It is designed to not only enrich your content, but also to provide an overall artistic base, with animated extras, to impress your visitors, and best reflect the primary focus of your forum.

No videos, no flash, no animated GIFs... no nonsense. Using the power of HTML5 Canvas and WebGL (browser dependent), the animated and interactive header can be created dynamically through a script with configurable colors and styles.
