I don't know about you, but the default ACP in phpBB3 looks, well, ugly. There is an unusual contrast scheme which makes me wonder whether its developer worked in a room with the lights off. At least for me, the ACP pages cause eyestrain which gets worse as the room brightness increases. In addition, due to the unusual contrast scheme, the "success" and "error" blocks have outright garish colors.

The attached ZIP file contains a replacement
admin.cssfile, along with the phpBB3 logo used in the ACP starting with phpBB 3.0.11. The logo goes in the
adm/imagesdirectory, and the replacement CSS goes in the
adm/styledirectory. Once the files are in their proper locations, go to your ACP, and refresh the main page to activate the new CSS. You will notice an immediate difference!
I strongly suggest that you rename your current
admin_old.cssbefore adding the new CSS. In that way you can easily restore your old CSS should you not like the new look of the ACP.
If anyone decides to improve on this new CSS, I would appreciate your posting the changes here. Enjoy!
