Rating ID Theme Name Problems Install
BRONZE 4042 1337 Does not show consecutive status messages Development.png
SILVER 4987 Adium Matte Consecutive messages are not in the bubble Development.png
SILVER 7890 ANNA Header covers the top messages that are impossible to read Development.png
GOLD 7925 Andromeda Header covers the top messages but there is a button to hide the header Development.png
PLATINUM 1385 Candybars - Development.png
PLATINUM 3306 Cinematic - Development.png
BRONZE 4728 Dinosaur Comics No dinosaurs in the chat. Rename {t,T}emplate.html to fix the dinosaurs problem Development.png
PLATINUM 7366 Durarara - Development.png
GOLD 2141 Ethereal Files are unzipped in a subfolder. DefaultBackgroundIsTransparent key in Info.plist should be used Development.png
PLATINUM 2463 GoneDark/GoneDark Polarized - Development.png
GOLD 7435 Hard Bubbles Header covers the top messages but there is a button to hide the header. Some variants seems to be broken (White, White Bubbling, Modern, and relative Alt *) Development.png
BRONZE 8063 Lighty Does not show baloons Development.png
GOLD 7780 Mnmlsm Header covers the top messages but being semi-transparent you can read it Development.png
PLATINUM 6638 Mochastyle - Development.png
GOLD 5367 Model Portfolio The theme seems to be working, but there is an ugly line in the middle that should be on the side. The DisplayNameForNoVariant key from Info.plist should be taken into account in the kcm Development.png
PLATINUM 3629 Modern Bubbling/Modern Bubbling Compact Header covers the top messages but there is a button to hide the header Development.png
RUBBISH 2158 Modern View Renaming {t,T}emplate.html becomes gold. The hide link in the header is broken (opens a browser instead of hiding the header) Development.png
BRONZE 6218 NoteBoard Does not show consecutive status messages Development.png
GOLD 6938 Pretty Simple Scrollbar goes outside on top Development.png
PLATINUM 198 Pushpin/Pushpin Vintage - Development.png
PLATINUM 6766 Ravenant - Development.png
SILVER 1779 Ruler Consecutive messages are not in the bubble Development.png
RUBBISH 7936 SimpleSky Invalid style. Renaming html files to uppercase becomes platinum Development.png
GOLD 2564 SmoothSeparateLines The screenshots show that the sender should be displayed for every message, but it's not for consecutive message. I suspect that this could happen for other themes Development.png
BRONZE 6058 Sticker Style Does not show baloons. Renaming {S,s}tyle folder becomes platinum Development.png
GOLD 4745 Succint Header covers the top messages that are hard to read Development.png
RUBBISH 7997 Taz "Taz.AdiumMessageStyle" is invalid style! Renaming {i,I}ncoming becomes Platinum. We should check the colours of the status message using this theme! Development.png
BRONZE 345 aNon Does not show status messages Development.png
RUBBISH 7003 coly/coly.names The name in the dropdown menu is wrong (Actually because the Info.plist file is info.plist instead). Default font is so small that it is impossible to read anything. Using a custom font aligment are completely wrong. Renaming {M,m}ain.css becomes platinum Development.png
PLATINUM 1907 h4x0r - Development.png
PLATINUM 8259 iMessages Very slow to load Development.png
GOLD 7756 xMous Timestamps are very small with default font Development.png
SILVER 5474 yMous Silver Development.png
BRONZE 5812 zMous Timestamps are very small with default font. Status messages are not shown Development.png

Other Themes

Theme Name Rating Problems
Gone Dark (from Adium repo) Platinum Not sure if it is a bug but the "Jabber" text appears over the separator line using custom fonts
Mockie (from Adium repo) Platinum
Smooth Operator (from Adium repo) Silver Header covers the top messages but there is a button to hide the header. There are a few visual issues (different in different variants)
Stockholm (from Adium repo) Gold The avatars seem to be outside of the window
minimal_mod (from Adium repo) Platinum Variant "SenderColor SingleLine" displays "%sender%" for status messages, for the rest is perfect, the header covers the top messages, but disappears automatically when you scroll to the top
Renkoo (default theme) Platinum
SimKete (default theme for group chats) Silver Appended messages are wrong, The DisplayNameForNoVariant key from Info.plist should be taken into account in the kcm


Rating:

  • Platinum: Perfect
  • Gold: Perfect but with some minor glitch
  • Silver: Usable, but with some major display problem
  • Bronze: Almost usable but with some major bug (messages/status not displayed, etc) or serious graphic bugs
  • Rubbish: Unusable
