Discussion on Metro — A Responsive Theme for phpBB3

479 comments found

Hello, I have a problem with displaying the footer. The width extends over the entire page, not just the width of the forum. It’s that difficult to explain. You can realize by visiting the website here: http://www.forumdubateau.com

Hello,

As I can see you managed to fix the issue or do you still need our assistance?

Default-user

hello, Yes, it is solved, thank you.

Are supported Mods listed anywhere? For example, the official ones from the PHPbb website: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/modifications

PixelGoose

Hello,

Actually the theme supports all the phpbb 3 addons. The only thing – some mods (those that should be integrated into the header template) cannot be installed as written in their documentation because of custom Metro header. In this case you should install them depending on the Metro header structure.

Great thanks! I was using their AutoMOD tool and I think that was the issue. Got it working.

Hello, will there be update for phpbb3.1?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Sure! We are working on it!

Default-user

Great, thanks!

Hello, could you give me the phpbb code to display latest topics on the index page as your Quarto phpbb3 template http://themeforest.net/item/quarto-phpbb3-responsive-retina-ready-theme/8526816?WT.ac=item_more_thumb&WT.z_author=PixelGoose

not the additional info blocks, but only the latest topics so i can display them as a list.

Hello,

I think we can add this feature!

Hello,

We want to buy a phpbb v 3.0 responsive theme for our site www.anglija.lt. Currently we use old version phpbb integrated into our main template – http://www.anglija.lt/forumas/. I tried free http://www.artodia.com/phpbb-styles/ theme, but when integrated into our main template it falls apart – menu is displayed in absolute top left corner. So I wanted to ask If there will be no problems with Your theme.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I’ve seen some forums using our Metro style integrated into websites and they look OK. The only thing – you should make sure your CMS has a bridge mod to have phpbb3 integrated into it.

Default-user

Could You, please, send some urls with Your Metro style integrated into other websites. Thanks.

PixelGoose

Please contact us via our profile page – I’ll send you some links.

phpBB v3.1 is available. This theme needs to be updated. I just mention. :)

PixelGoose

Hello,

We are already working on it! I hope it will be available very soon!

Hello again, it is good to add quick style switcher to the theme :)

PixelGoose

Hello,

You can use this mod for example – https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=692625

Should I avoid updating to 3.1 for now?

Please let me know ASAP!

PixelGoose

Hello,

Sure, you can still use phpBB 3.0.12. It’s quite secure and usable. The only reason to update to phpBB 3.1.0 is to get new features.

MurrinMedia

Nah, my question was more can I upgrade to 3.1.0 with the current version of your theme?

4 Days ago it says you are “working on it” so I wanted to find out

PixelGoose

No, this version of theme won’t work with 3.1.0. We need to create a new version from scratch so it’ll take some time.

Hi,

my old prosilver theme had posting buttons and smilies visible in the quick reply editor. Could you help me to put these back there with the metro theme.

I also sent you a message about the online icon when moving profiles to left.

Thank you.

hello, is it possible to change the width of the sidebar? how?

thanks

PixelGoose

Hello,

Sure, it’s possible. Contact us via our profile page – I’ll send you instructions.

Hi,

I have seen several comments regarding if the theme will be updated to phpBB 3.1.x but never an estimated date for the release. I have a large project that is waiting to be launched and the only thing holding it back is that I want to buy this theme and use it for the project. For that reason I wonder what is the estimated release-date? If there is no estimated release date, how much time do you guess it will take roughly?

I also wonder if updates are free?

Regards, Nils

Default-user

Great, thank you for a fast reply! Looking forward to buying this software.

Default-user

Two weeks has now passed, I wonder if the release is close? When is it expected?

PixelGoose

Hello,

We are testing it at the moment. Depending on it it will be available very soon – a week or so.

Hello,

I just bought 3.0.12 version of this theme. When 3.1 version will be released, will I have to buy it again?

Thanks

PixelGoose

Hello,

No, you won’t have – it will be available for all 3.0.12 buyers!

Default-user

Thanks, very good news :-)

Hi Pixelgoose,

I want to use this theme on an embedded forum in combination with Wordpress. The person helping me setting it up got everything working with WP-United (wordpress and phpbb plugin) but when he embeds the theme, theres an error.

It looks like the theme is not working in combination with WP-United. Have you heard of this error before? Could you have a quick look at what this can be?

error PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare set_var() (previously declared in /home/airsoft/web/www.airsoftclubnederland.nl/forumz/includes/functions.php:28) in /home/airsoft/web/www.airsoftclubnederland.nl/forumz/includes/functions.php on line 56

I also have a backup off our forum set-up in case you wanted to go have the complete picture.

PixelGoose

Hello,

It may be caused by a mod that is installed (or not installed) into the Metro theme. You need to check those lines inside functions.php and see which mods use it.

Hi PixelGoose,

Thanks! I guess its WP-United as that also requires a mod in phpbb.

If I need the mod that is using that same line, what are my options? Find and replace all to change the name of the function for the theme?

PixelGoose

Hello,

I would suggest you to go through the mod documentation and look at the steps – just follow them and you’ll see if they were applied to the theme or not.

Hi, I want to install this theme, but I’m hesitating because I’ve a “Like” or “Thanks” mod which has been used extensively and for long. I believe I’ll have to install this mod again with the new theme. The question is I do not want to lose the “likes” record with the existing theme. Is there a way to transfer the existing data to the new theme? thanks.

PixelGoose

Hello,

As @file_submit wrote, the “Like” extension is still under development by its author and as soon as it’s ready you’ll be able to use it.

@ukuhi – those are stored in the database and not in the theme. however if you upgrade to phpbb 3.1 you will loose those likes because the new phpbb 3.1 doesn;t support old mods – only new extensions. currently they are developing “like/thanks” extension but it is not yet released.

PixelGoose

Thanks for your help! :)

I’m looking for some code that I could use to have the 5 latest posts displayed on my right sidebar. Do you have some recommendation?

Still on sidebar content, is there a way I can post the most active users for the week or month on my sidebar?

I would suggest you to use this mod. It’ll work for you.

Still on sidebar content, is there a way I can post the most active users for the week or month on my sidebar?
I think you can use this mod. It shows quite extended statistics but you can choose to show active members only.

phpBB version used is 3.1.1

PixelGoose

Hello,

The theme isn’t ready for 3.1.1 yet, we’re still working on it. As for mods. phpBB 3.1 using a new system – extensions. All the available extensions can be seen here. In addition you can use some extensions that are in alpha/beta at the moment.
