Time for another subsilver2 modification of my own! In this opportunity, it's a barely tested but
probably perfectly safe hack to display the same user profile information in post footers as the prosilver style does in phpBB 3.0.x.
Basically, phpBB 2.x displayed the author's website URL, MSNM/WLM, AIM and ICQ ids in every post footer if they provided such information in their profile; this behavior is kept in phpBB 3.0.x, adding Yahoo! Messenger and Jabber links. However, for some strange reason these links are not included in the subsilver2 style, so only prosilver users can see these shortcuts in the viewtopic pages — subsilver2 fans must go to the user's profile instead.
This extremely simple template hack restores the subsilver2 shortcuts, providing an extra tiny bit of consistency for forums that allow users to choose between the good old subsilver2 style, and the shiny prosilver.

As with my earlier subsilver2 [code] selection hack, I am not going to submit this to the official mod database because, according to the official mod database policies, prosilver modification instructions are required for submission. Maybe I'll check if there's a way around that. Maybe.
