Can anyone suggest a good themr and some settings pointer for irssi ?

Hello Guys. I stumbled upon this forum doing a google search and I had an error which some user in this forum help solve and everyone seemed friendly and no questions really seemed dumb to ask. So, I decided to join and ask questions and take part in this community.

I recently got a small VPS and I am running Debian 7 64Bit i believe. I installed irssi and i am hoping to get familiar with the software as I love irc and chatting and staying in touch with people over irc.

I have come across many people who had irssi installed with a theme and showed exactly how they set it up but that was like a year or 2 old. I tried using the same setup and i kept running into issues or not the same thing i saw in the screenshots or the videos.

I was hoping someone to show me how their setup is or if they have a custom theme, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

I generally use this:

Nothing about themes but plenty on options & usage.

According to it's man page, irssi has a lot of documentation in /usr/share/doc/irssi*
might be worth a look over to see if it mention themes.

Nothing on themes but perhaps the following might be useful:

Running irssi under the latest release of Ubuntu

Certainly deals with the basic connection and delves a little into scripts...
