Just wanted to stop by and say this is probably one of the nicest themes for phpBB that I’ve seen in a LONG time. It’s simple, effective, and definitely worthy of $15.

Great job!

PixelGoose

Hello,

hi there, may I know please; 1. Is it RTL support also? 2. which plugin can use to make it Multilingual? something like WPML plugin. thanks

PixelGoose

Hello,

1. Sorry, no RTL-support. 2. You don’t need any plugin. Just install a new language – https://www.phpbb.com/kb/article/how-to-install-a-language-pack

Hi, 1. Is it compatible with Menu System MOD (phpBB Slovenija) to create lots of sub-menu? 2. Can I make each group in different color to be recognized either by others?

PixelGoose

Hello,

1. It will work but it needs much css-customization as the Metro tab menu differs a lot from the default one.


2. Yes, it’s possible. AdminCP – Users and Groups – Manage Groups – YOUR_GROUP – Settings – Group Colours

You made my day. Finally a wonderful phpbb theme!

Before purchasing: is it possible add some adv banner’s code without “damaging” normal and mobile layouts?

Thank you

PixelGoose

Hello,

Yes, it’s possible. If it will be an image ad – it will just be squeezed to fit the width.

Default-user

First of all, thank you for response. So, what about banner code in iframe? It will “squeezed” too?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Yes, it will work.

Hi,

I am trying to add Google Analytics code to the template and I searched the web and found the following instructions.

“In the overall_footer.html file of whichever styles your are using just above the tag.”

I added my Google code as per the instructions and the website appears to hanging when I hit refresh. I see at the bottom window taskbar that it looks like it’s waiting for Google.

I removed the code and the site is back to normal.

Where should I place the Google Analytics code? Thx

PixelGoose

Hello,

The GA code is usually placed either in the <head> tag or in the footer. It always works. As for your issue – it seems to be a network issue not a theme one.

Hi, thanks for the quick reply. But, I am still lost because there are many template files to choose from. In which template file should I add the google analytics code? thx

PixelGoose

I usually add the code into the <head> tag. It’s in the overall_header.html – paste it just above the closing tag </head>.

Again, thanks for a quick reply especially on a Friday night! Hope this helps future purchasers.

Hi, I love your Theme again as I bought last time for vB also. You are doing really good, good luck at sale. I will be happy to know, please: 1. How to insert image into New Navigation bar tab same as you did in theme? I Just can insert Text same as your instruction. 2. How can I have Multiple Text/Image Poll and survey on my Theme with or without posting any thread? any suggestion or Plugin? 3. any suggestion about stopping spams? 4. Do you have plan to make it RTL support also? 5. any suggestion for Advertisement Plugin? Thanks

PixelGoose

Hello,

1. Use css-rules for that.

2. You should look for phpBB addons for that. I think there should be something like that.

3. Preventing Spam in phpBB3 – https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=2122696

4. The theme support RTL-forums mostly. There are some blocks that don’t but we plan to add a full RTL-support.

5. Lots of them I think. For example – https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/advertisement_management/

I have a question; If I get it, is there any way I could make the sidebar on the homepage be displayed everywhere (not only on the homepage)?Thank you a lot!

PixelGoose

Hello,

Yes, it’s possible, but it needs more coding.

This theme is wonderful! Worth the money! Anyway, I was wondering if it would be possible to just make the forums full width, instead of the non-existing side bar taking up space, I’d rather just have the forum there _. If this isn’t possible, do you think you could add this in a future update :)?

PixelGoose

Hello,

It’s possible and it should be in this way. It’s our fault, sorry. Please contact us via our profile page – I’ll explain how to fix it. Of wait for fixed version – it’ll be available very soon!

then i installed only the theme folder from the metro_purple folder – it didnt work again

Basiclly I can`t see the theme under the styles tab

Hello,

You should put the folder “metro_purple” with all it contains into your “styles” folder. It must work if you do it.
