Hi, an event index_body_forumlist_body_after is lost (I mean I cannot find it in the theme and it’s critical). Please look for the lost events and fix it. [I am using metro blue] When you can fix it?

Hello,

Thank you for the report! We’ll fix it in the nearest update!

When I can expect it? It’s important as I am trying to upgrade the look of my discussion board…

Hello,

It will be ready in a few days. But if you want to get it faster, please contact us via our profile page, I’ll send you the edited template.

It is not responsive. Please give my money back. This theme fail to Google Mobile-Friendly Test https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/?hl=en I waste my money and time with this theme.

Hello,

First of all, Google Mobile-Friendly Test doesn’t show if your style responsive or not. It only shows if the style ‘mobile-friendly’ or not and uses private Google evaluation.

Secondly, the Metro for phpBB 3 is fully ‘mobile-friendly’ as Google says in this test – https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/?hl=en&url=http%3A%2F%2Fphpbb31.pixelgoose.com%2Findex.php%3Fstyle%3D2

I have bought the Metro theme for PHPBB and I want to translate the buttons. You have included a PSD which contains all the buttons(called buttons_en.psd) but in the file there’s an issue with the PM button(s). They aren’t available as type(probably converted to object in Illustrator). I want to change the text of the PM button but it’s an object so I can’t modify the text. Can you send a PSD which has the button available as editable text?

Hello,

Please contact us from the account you used to buy the theme. We only support verified users.

Is it possible to put big logo for computer webiste and small logo for mobile website?

Hello, I would like to see how posting a new thread looks and more stuff but it doesn’t let me because you have disabled the registration. Give me some demo login details or allow registrations on the forum please!

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

No problem! Just contact us via our profile page and I’ll send you a demo login.

how can i edit the link-name of the quicklinks. in german it’s called “Schnellzugriff” but the word is too long and goes out of the box see findyourchallenge.de

also it doesnt work to add a custom link

or it seems, that it just takes a while until the changes apply, although im emptying the cache etc

Hello,

Yes, the cache may be the reason. Thank you for the report, we’ll add stuff about the cache to the documentation.

Hello, I wonder if you can help with this? I’m using latest Metro on 3.1.8 with phpbb Directory Extension. I have it all working OK but would like to use a tab Icon for Directory. At present I’m using the .svg icon from quicklinks tab. Can you help with an .svg file for my image? I’ve tried the online converters, but they won’t work. Thanks Glenn

Hello,

I think it would be much easier for you to use a free svg icon. You can find here a lot of them ready to use – http://www.flaticon.com/packs

But if you don’t find a proper icon, please contact us via our profile page, we’ll try to help you.

Hi,

i would like change the background under the logo by a photo (not a colour) ! How i can do that ? Thanks.

Thanks

But now how do I add or edit a navigation link? I do like in support (navbar_header.html), and it doesn’t work !

Hello,

Did you try to clear the system cache after editing? It’s here – AdminCP – General tab – Purge the cache – Right now

Hello there,

I have purchased your theme some time ago, but only now managed to install it. The delay was because I couldn’t get my board upgraded from 3.0 to 3.1 version.

I am quite pleased with your theme, I must admit, and I am quite impreseed that itb even supports Ukrainian language on which my board is running.

However, I need one little help.

I noticed that on the board’s header, MCP, ACP and FAQ titles do not fit into their boxes when written in Ukrainian.

Please have a look at this sceenshot, to understand what I am about: http://clip2net.com/s/3wy4DNg

Where do I go to rename these titles? What file (and in which directory)?

Your assistance would be very much appreciated.

Best regards, Alex Satler

Hello,

Thank you for your good words! We are glad you like our work.

As for your issue, I think you have two options. First – just as you want to rename the titles. You’ll need to edit your language file for that. It’s here – /languages/uk/common.php. Open it with a plain-text editor, find and rename your titles. Secondly you can decrease the font size inside the menu tabs via editing the css-styles. If you don’t know how to edit css, please contact us via our profile page, we’ll send you instructions.

Thanks for the advise. That did a trick and worked like a charm! To make me completely happy, will you be able to advise if I can add an additional box to the forum header, which would say “Home” to allow users to navigate from forum back to website’s home page, or perphaps, you have a better solution for this? I would be quite thankful.

HI there, is there an install guide for this or can you send me one or link me to it before I purchase please? Thanks Allan

Hello,

The installation guide can be found inside the theme pack. But if you want to get if before purchasing, please contact us via our profile page, I’ll send it to you.

Hi, thanks for your response. But now how do I add or edit a navigation link? I do like in support (navbar_header.html), and it doesn’t work !

Hello,

Did you try to clear the cache after editing the templates? It’s here – ACP – General tab – Purge the cache – Run now button.

Hi guys, I am having hard times with site_logo on mobile (site is http://e46forum.pl) – what do I do wrong that image is not scaled when on mobile…?

Hello,

There’s a great tutorial on the subject – https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=2270871

Yup, but if you redirect me to a tutorial, then I guess metro is not really that responsive :/

Hello,

The problem is forums have different logos. Width and height differ much. We can’t set a single css rule for a 100px width logo and 500px width. This common rule can make a logo look ugly. So we just added this tutorial for better customization.

Question on your latest update if I may I think V2.0.6 Can I simply upload my colour scheme and overwrite what’s already there, or do i need to delete all current schemes and start over?

don’t worry about this…not sure why I asked. what main changes have been made?

Hello,

All the changed files are listed in the update list (a link can be found at the bottom of the theme description page). We didn’t change any css-files this time so your color scheme won’t be afftected in any way. As for the changed files – you can simply upload them to your style folder and rewrite the older ones.

Will you be able to advise if I can add an additional box to the forum header, which would say “Home” to allow users to navigate from forum back to website’s home page, or perphaps, you have a better solution for this? I would be quite thankful. Please have a look at this screenshot: http://clip2net.com/clip/m52510/1460719097-c77ca-48kb.png

Hello,

It’s fully described inside the documentation. Step 3 (How do I add or edit a navigation link?). Just follow the steps!

How can I change to display column with author avatars etc. on the left instead of the right?

hi – I purchased a copy long ago but did not use it – now we are thinking of making a forum and I checked for a new download and found out that you implemented all this dangerous google-stuff, fonts and jquery-library etc … for Wordpress its simple to block google-fonts with special widgets but how to get rid of it here? I do not allow any extern hosted scripts or fonts on my server, it must be safe and all self-hosted – is it possible to get that google-stuff out ? thanks and greetings

Hello,

The stuff is not dangerous at all) But if you want to host the scripts yourself, you sure can do it. Just contact us via our profile page, I’ll send you instructions.
