Hello, I change the logo, but now my logo is show too small. How can i change the size of the logo at the theme?

The logo file (.png) have the right size but when i uploaded it appear really small online.

Thanks a lot!

PixelGoose

Hello,

Did you add the new logo size to ‘imageset.cfg’ as written in the documentation? And you should refresh the imageset in the AdminCP after that too.

I have installed this mod, but don’t know how to activated. I mean, what to change in index_body.html???

PixelGoose

Hello,

It should be described in the mod documentation. Please read it carefully.

{ RECENT_TOPICS } Topics Replies Views Last post There are no topics or posts in this forum.

I have read it carefully, and on my sidebar that’s the text that appear!

And, btw, the author said: A manual how to install the mod on any other page of phpbb3 is included (see zip-file/contrib/Addons/add_any_page/install.xml).

Is not true, there is no Addons folder in contrib folder.

I have bought the theme but I have the following issues; Clicking the “Login” link at the top right side of the page does not work in IE, Firefox, or Chrome. The #login-box functionality doesn’t work. The “About Us” and “Join Us” bars at the bottom of the page in the Live Preview are not part of mine. Please urgent help is needed.

PixelGoose

Hello,

Are you using https?

Default-user
riere Purchased

No, I am running it from my laptop which is my test platform

PixelGoose

If all the files uploaded properly you shouldn’t have any difficulties. Try to reinstall the theme.

Default-user

Okay, I will try reinstalling the theme. What about the “Login” link at the top right side of the page does not work?

PixelGoose

The login box is using the jquery script and it’s downloaded directly from google servers. I think something may block the script and that’s why the login form doesn’t work.

Thanks. My laptop wasn’t connected to the internet. But I am fine now.

Hello,

Which version of phpbb are you using? The theme is supposed to work with phpbb 3.0.11 only.

Ah that might explain it then, update in progress now :)

Thanks all fixed, the upgrade didn’t help but it was a multi file upload mod that was killing it…

OK, good luck with your forum! And feel free to contact us if you still have any questions.

So I guess this was not in the latest update =(. Also chrome is giving this error for $(document).ready(function() {

“Uncaught ReferenceError: $ is not defined “

This only shows up for https

Hello,

Sorry, it’s not modified yet. But I promise we’ll fix it.

I like how the vB version has the sidebar that disappears. Is that not possible in the PHPBB version?

MurrinMedia

And just a side note – I’m having a lot of fun implementing and redesigning this theme! I’ve been searching for a theme to update my forum with for years. All other PHPBB themes look like it’s 1994.

I’ve changed some of the imagesets so that the visuals for new posts, no unread .. etc are all footballs. I’ve used CSS to make a “tabbed” sidebar area (though IE doesn’t work damn). I also made a header image so there is a grass image behind the title rectangle and boxes. I’ve mixed and matched different colours (blue, black and white, red) so make a different feel.

I’ve also created CSS/code so that when you get a new private message, it pops up with a large green rectangle above the “view new posts” bar, like a notification.

PixelGoose

Wow, your forum looks great! Just wonderful! Congratulations! :)

I like how the vB version has the sidebar that disappears. Is that not possible in the PHPBB version?
It’s possible but it needs some coding. We’ll think about implementing this feature.

Hello,

As I see you managed to add the sidebar on that page?

I need to test one mod for this. I’ll do it tomorrow and let you know!

Hello,

You can use this mod – http://www.flying-bits.org/download.php?mod_id=5 It works OK!

How this theme looks in ie8 and in russian?)

PixelGoose

Hello,

It works OK with Russian language. But you will have some issues with IE8 – first of all it won’t be responsive and you’ll need a fix for submenu icons – but it’s easy to do.

With this version, is there anyway to have the same color-switching abilities as seen on the vBulletin version (color bar menu on left of page)?

PixelGoose

Hello,

It’s just a piece of rough code, it’s not a module. So you can just take it and implement to your site. Just add links to your styles.

Great theme! Can you tell me how to switch the sidebar in the posts to the left hand side please (and move the online image across aswell)? Thanks!

PixelGoose

Hello,

The sidebar’s position can be changed via css.

and move the online image across aswell
Which online image you mean? In the post block?
Default-user

The ‘Online’ banner to signify that someone is currently logged in. I would like to position it on the other side aswell after I move the sidebar from right to left. Basically I am looking to mirror its position on the left rather than the right. I hope that makes sense.

Just stumbled on this theme “by mistake” and checked out the demo. Great GREAT theme. I bought it just to support your work even though I don’t even run a forum. Imo this is how the phpbb3 makers SHOULD alter the original forum theme into.

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for the good words and the purchase! We are glad you like our work! :)

Oh … And please consider make one to SMF2 forum : http://download.simplemachines.org/ also. I’d buy it right away for twice the cost. ;)

PixelGoose

I’m not sure, but we may create a SMF version too!

Default-user

I hope you can/would consider it. Personally I switched to this since it has a lot of “built in” functions ( on a free script ) that is very usefull to smaler companies.

phpbb = the BIGGEST one. But it lacks functions that a company needs.

vBulletin = A great script, but for a smaller company they may not be able to afford and/or want to spend the money on it.

smf2 = A free “inbetween” option that is underrated, but very usefull to smaller compains due to it’s functions you can turn on/off.

Hi,

First of all, thank you for this wonderful theme. It has been a great addon to our support forum. Already gave you a 5 star :)

Now for my query, I see that you are using jQuery version 1.6.x within your theme. I had to update it to 1.10.x because of some other requirements of mine. I also saw that inside overall_header.html template, you had some jQuery code with .live API (mainly to show the login modal box). Since that is deprecated I changed it to .on API and everything works as expected. My question is, is that all jQuery code used in your template or are there more? If more, then can you please give a list of files I need to edit to update them (PS: I can update them myself. But a list of files would be really helpful).

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for the purchase! And thanks for the 5 star rating! :)

is that all jQuery code used in your template or are there more?
Yes, it’s the only part jquery used for.
iPanelThemes

Great thanks. Perhaps you’d update it in your upcoming release :)

iPanelThemes

Also, just a heads up. The forum rules seemed a little buggy on topic pages (eg, creating a new topic or replying to one). The main reason seemed the link was not wrapped inside span.rules-header. I’ve fixed it with some minor CSS. Thought you’d like to know.

PixelGoose

Hello,

Which forum rules you mean? The default one or a third-party addon? If it’s the default rule system, could you please send me a screenshot of the issue? Just contact us via our profile page, please.

iPanelThemes

The default one. Sent you an email.

and copy UNDER it or paste this line –

Hello,

phpBB was updated to 3.0.12 a few days ago. Is it safe (theme-wise) to go ahead and update to the new version? I’m on 3.0.11.

Hello,

Yes, you can use the Metro theme with phpbb 3.0.12. It’s safe.

Hi there, purchased the theme and currently working my way through setting-up. Is it possible to have a logo for desktop viewers and a different logo for mobile phone users?

Currently whilst viewing by mobile phone, my logo goes over the Navigation Menu button and looks messy.

You can view via www.lnffl.com

PixelGoose

Hello,

You can change logo width with css media queries. Just set low width for mobile devices. If you don’t know how to do it – contact us via our profile page, we’ll help you.

Hey i purchased the theme and I’m currently stuck on the sidebar, did everything else

I need to have a small square image on the top ( just like in the demo which could be removed ) and then a list of the most active users, possibly by rank or something? kind of a leaderboard.

Thank you

PixelGoose

Hello,

You can use a mod like this for showing user statistics – https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/top_five/

Default-user

Could you give me the exact instruction on how to make a sidebar just like the demo?

I am having a hard time, the tutorial file says

Replace ‘Your Sidebar Block Header ’and ‘Your sidebar content goes here’ with the content you need

I don’t really know what to put there ( don’t know code as well )

PixelGoose

Hello,

I don’t really know what to put there
You should replace it with what you need, e.g. “Welcome” for ‘Your Sidebar Block Header’ and some welcome text for ‘Your sidebar content goes here’. Try it!
