Clicking the “Login” link at the top left side of the page does not work in IE, Firefox, or Chrome. The #login-box functionality seems to be hit or miss.

After having logged out, the top-left “Login” link sometimes starts working, but when visiting the page fresh for the first time, the Login link does not work!

I recommend changing that login link to not drive a Javascript popup form, instead just make it a standard/separate login page as in all other normal phpbb themes (and even some other parts of the Metro theme itself!).

by the way, this is Metro Black & White. I can send my URL via Private message if needed.

Can someone PLEEEEEASE help me install this through FileZilla? I am a complete NOOB when it comes to this. Thanks!

Can I edit the template through the phpbb admin without using FileZilla (FTP)?

Update!!!

So, I’ve managed to figure out how to edit my them. However, these are some issues I’m having:

1). How to I get the the sidebar to show up on every page?

2). Can I change the theme to a B&W theme where the tabs and blocks are black and the page background in white? If so, where exactly would I go to make these changes?

3). How do I make it to where certain tabs link to specific forums?

Thanks, in advance :-)

Exactly how do I add unique id’s to navigation tabs? Where do I locate these unique id’s?

Default-user

Some header tabs are “unclickable”, and have no icon—Contacts, News.

Last thing… what all do I have to edit to turn this into a straight black and white theme where the tabs, blocks and texts are all black, and only the borders are grey?

Thanks!

Forgot to put “black” icons, as well…

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for the purchase!

How to I get the the sidebar to show up on every page?
Just read the documentation, it’s described there.



Can I change the theme to a B&W theme where the tabs and blocks are black and the page background in white? If so, where exactly would I go to make these changes?

Yes, you can change the theme to any color you want. All the colors are stored in theme .css-files. You can find theme here -

/styles/YOUR_THEME/theme/
So just find and replace colors to those you need.



How do I make it to where certain tabs link to specific forums?
All the tabs are inside ‘tabs.html’ template. Add your links there.



Exactly how do I add unique id’s to navigation tabs? Where do I locate these unique id’s?
The id’s are inside each tab. What is a css id



Some header tabs are “unclickable”, and have no icon—Contacts, News.
You have to add them via css using your unique id’s.

Thanks, for responding!

Okay, so I pretty much have everything done, but how do I get the “welcome” and “social icons” block to show? Also, even though I have the correct id’s for the tabs the icons are still not showing up.

Thanks!

PixelGoose

Okay, so I’ve followed your instructions and have figured it all out with the exception of 2 things:

1). I’ve read the documentation and have followed the instructions in regards to replacing the nav-tab-id with a unique id but the icon still does not show up.

Where do I find these id’s? I assumed they were in the imageset folder, but I’m clearly not not doing something right.

2). How to get side bar to show on every page?

Thanks, in advance!

Nevermind 1). I’ve figured it out.

But, how to get side bar on every page?

Been busy at work and haven’t been fully listening when you say “It’s described in the documentation” but it CLEARLY is described. Sry for the repetitive questions. I got the side bar to work.

No problem! Feel free to contact us if you still have any questions.

The only question I have for today is how do I set up links for my tabs? When I click on the tabs I’ve created nothing happens.

Thanks!

PixelGoose

You should just edit ‘href’ inside the tab – add there your links.

Hello, I just bought the theme, all works fine, but i need to change the background color. I made the change in stylesheet but don´t work. Any ideas?

Thank you.

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for the purchase!

Did you try to clear the theme cache?

Default-user

I got it, to change the background-color I change the value in

Colours and backgrounds for common.css -----------—- */

html, body { color: #333333; background-color: #HERE; }

@dardenick , to change your background color just login to your ACP ,go to styles > themes and hit Edit at the theme you want to modify. After that hit ctrl+f and type html, body . From here you can change the background-color .Hit Submit and you are done.

Hi i just bought the theme,,, i want to add pages or you can say tabs in it but i am not sure how

  • {L_FAQ}

    this is the thing to add the tab…. where did i add id like”faq-link” and where did i find the href source that is “{U_FAQ}” where did i find this information…. to add new tabs like this.

    Asif

  • PixelGoose

    Hello,

    Thank you for the purchase!

    ‘L_FAQ’ is a default phpbb3 page, so you don’t have to find any additional links for that, just use as a link this code -

    href="{U_FAQ}"

    Hi, I want to put the icon on the tab how can i do that i tried to put it through common.css but it s not working…. below is my url

    http://forums.epakistan.com/

    PixelGoose

    Hello,

    Thank you for the purchase!

    Just use a code like this -

    #header li#latest-post a {
             background-image: url("./styles/metro_blue/imageset/YOUR_TAB_IMG");
            background-attachment: scroll;
            background-repeat: no-repeat;
            background-position: left top;
    }
    Default-user

    where to put this code

    PixelGoose

    Use ‘common.css’ for that. And don’t forget to refresh the theme after you edit it.

    Default-user

    i have added that already in common.css but its still not appear and how to refresh the theme

    Default-user

    PixelGoose

    Hello,

    Do you only want to place there a new registered user name or more complex information?

    Good afternoon

    This theme is awesome, looking forward to using this as a base for my site

    Question – how hard is it to have a LEFT sidebar that is in the same style as the right? I have this on my current forum on the front page only

    Kind regards,

    David

    PixelGoose

    Hello,

    Yes it’s possible. I wouldn’t say it’s so difficult, but you need some css knowledge to do it.

    Hi Please any help to make thismod working on the theme?

    Thank you
    PixelGoose

    Hello,

    It will work with the theme. But it may need additional styling. And one more thing – that popup login can conflict with our login window, so you should disable it.

    Default-user

    Please, I need some help..almost all mods (No appearing in this theme)...i need some instruction at least for (phpbb_jquery_base). Thank you

    PixelGoose

    When you follow mods instructions, make changes to the Metro theme, no the ‘prosilver’. And everything will work OK!

    Default-user

    I already tried…but many codes (to replace) are not found in same template!!! and no errors in console!!, Please can you send instruction example for this mod? Thank you

    Thanking you in anticipation.

    hi i’m again :)

    is there a chance to disable the signature of posts only in the smalest smallscreen css? what have i to do to disable it?

    thnaks and regards Patrick

    PixelGoose

    Hello,

    Do you want to disable signatures when a user visits your forum from a mobile device? Yes, it’s possible. You just have to add some css-rules hiding signatures into the ‘responsive.css’ template of your theme!

    Default-user
    pare Purchased

    Hi, yes that is the thing i want to have :) is it possible, that you told me this rules? :)

    PixelGoose

    Use ’.postbody .signature’ – it’s the signature class. Add it to the ‘responsive.css’ template to those parts that describe low resolutions. Just hide the signature block through it!

    There doesn’t seem to be any notification regarding a new PM… either as a banner or a popup… is this intended?

    PixelGoose

    Hello,

    No, there is notification. It looks like this –

    MurrinMedia

    Yeah, I meant some sort of banner that makes it obvious :) It’s ok though I made my own , basically mimicked the solid bar that has “view active topics” etc and made it green.

    PixelGoose

    OK, feel free to contact us if you still have any questions! :)

    MurrinMedia

    I do actually …. haha

    Is there a way to not force responsive?

    Either stop it all together or have a “Full version” link that means it is the full version on the phone/mobile device

    PixelGoose

    Hello,

    You can only completely disable ‘responsive’ mode. Find the ‘stylesheet.css’ template and delete this line -

    @import url("responsive.css");

I want to change the forum title and in the last row where it says “Last post by” In which css are theese so I can change them? How are they named? I didn;t figured out with firebug, sorry. Thanx in advance Elias

    PixelGoose

    Hello,

    You should use ’.forumtitle’ and ’.lastpost span’ for that.

    Hello.. Any plans to launch this theme with alternate header? Or maybe new theme? This theme really looks great but I am looking for a theme with a header banner.. Rotating banner would be great as well.. Also is it possible for your to develop widgets for the siderbar for recent posts or comments/replies?.. Regards

    PixelGoose

    Hello,

    No, we don’t have plans to create an alternate header. But if you have some knowledge in html and css, you can easily create an own one.

    Also is it possible for your to develop widgets for the siderbar for recent posts or comments/replies?
    You can use a mod for that from the phpbb3 mod database. The sidebar works ok with mods!

    Thanks!

    PixelGoose

    Hello,

    Thank you for the purchase!

    1. You can change it by editing the ‘doc_background’ variable of your style. You can find it here – AdminCP – Styles & Templates – Style Manager – YOUR_STYLE – Style Variable Editor

    2. It’s not a banner, it’s an html-block and if you want you can place an image inside it.

    3. Yes, you can. Each forum block has an own css-id, so you can easily assign a background image to it.

    4. Here’s a video tutorial – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSK1ieIjmW4

    Default-user

    1. Hey PixelGoose, thanks for the reply. Are you sure this attend to PHPBB3 and not vBulletin? There is no “Styles & Template”, only “Style” in PHPBB3 and I cant find to see a style editor in there :)

    2 & 3. Where can I think the html_code for it and the css_file? :)

    4. I did manage to put an image there by clicking Forums -> Category -> Manage Forum -> Edit -> “Forum Image:”

    However when I add a new icon the old one is still there to the left :) Here is an image: http://s17.postimg.org/yeytcqh8v/Untitled_2.png

    How to proceed? Thanks!

    Also is it possible to get a sidebar like in the vBulletin-version? http://themeforest.net/item/metro-a-theme-for-vbulletin-42-suite/full_screen_preview/3555714

    I do notice a sidebar.html in /metro_red/template/ ;)

    PixelGoose

    Hello,

    Are you sure this attend to PHPBB3 and not vBulletin?
    My bad! Sorry.

    1. The background color is in the ‘colours.css’ template.

    2. Look for ‘overall_header.html’ template – the logo code is inside it.

    3. No, phpbb3 doesn’t have additional css id’s depending on certain forum block. But you can set an image background for all the forum headers.

    4. Try this mod – http://www.phpbb3bbcodes.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=582

    Also is it possible to get a sidebar like in the vBulletin-version?
    Sure! It’s described in the documentation how to add the sidebar.
