I created this a few weeks ago, and now I thought maybe I should upload it here… I wanted a clean, simple Adium message style, and couldn’t find one that I liked, so I decided to create my own. It's a simple text-based message style – no images, only simple WebKit animations.

Very nice. :-)

I just downloaded it and it's a keeper. Could I please ask you though to make another similar style that makes the time stay put or at least give instructions on how to do so?

Thanks! Glad you like it :)
Sorry, I won't be adding a variant like that, since I wouldn't use it myself (I just kind of threw this one together for my personal use). Anyone is free to fork my repository on GitHub though (, and make the necessary changes. You'll want to modify the ".message .time" rule.

Have you tried designing a userlist to go with it? Or which one do you use yourself?
It is very nice theme, probably the best in this site actually.

@sshmob Thanks for the kind words! :)
I'm using a simple iChat-like contact list style with the iChat Matte icons available on this site. Screenshot: (I've slightly modified the Adium source code to allow for more iChat-like group headers.)

Oh you got it nicely done. I just modified Black is Beautiful theme for my liking and to go with this chat theme. I used the alternating from that skin and removed bubbles and disabled group to just show online users and its quite nice now. But I have a question about Adium chat window size (I don't like tabs), it keeps returning to some quite small size (400x300 or so) but I'd like it to be always one size and something like 500x300 or a bit more in width. How would I solve this?

# window.resizeTo(500,300)
as Footer.html in Resources did the trick.

Took embarrassingly long time for me to figure that out.

With html script tags (apparently this messageboard doesn't allow posting html tags).
