Sorry! Me again…

I keep getting this message:

General Error The file ./styles/metro_red/template/abbcode.html is missing. Please notify the board administrator or webmaster

It happens when i click on Active topics and then try and go to a page or post or user…

I see I have a file bbcode.html in the templates folder, but no abbcode.html?!

PixelGoose

abbcode.html is not a core phpbb3 template. It looks like a template from a third-party plugin. The main template is bbcode.html.

Hello, any reason why the theme isn’t represented correctly on Internet Explorer? I have no issues with it on Firefox. Thanks.

Notice the “Members” icon is missing and the menu text below the site logo is overlapped with something.

I realize that the “Members” icon is missing if you are not logged in, so that’s fine.

The website still has issues in Internet Explorer and Chrome. Chrome the site log doesn’t scale properly and Internet Explorer is trying to display the smaller forum menu icons when it shouldn’t.

Any way to resolve this?

Thanks,

Hello,

>>Chrome the site log doesn’t scale properly

You mean “logo”? I’ve tested it with the latest Chrome version and it looks alright. Can you send a screenshot with the issue?

>>and Internet Explorer is trying to display the smaller forum menu icons when it shouldn’t.

Which version of IE you’re using?

MikeQuell
MikeQuell Purchased

Yes, sorry about that. I’m talking about the site logo.

I think I might have been on an older version of IE and Chrome at work. IE ver. 10.0.92 and Chrome ver. 27.0.14 works for me.

Firefox 21.0 still has the resizing issues with the logo though and overlaps the block tabs for “FAQ”.

Thanks!

Mike

PixelGoose

Well, your logo is just too wide. You should just add some css-rules to fix it. Please contact us via our profile page, we’ll try to help you out.

Alright thanks. I wasn’t sure since it works on other browsers.

First I would like to say I bought the theme this morning for my new forum and I love the theme. New board and first theme I have ever bought.

PixelGoose

Hello,

Glad you like it! And good luck with your community! :)

Default-user

I have one quick question, not sure if anyone else has asked this yet but, is there a way to get the tabs from the top to be added else where on the site. Like for an example I’ve added a portal page for my front page and I wanted to add the to the body of this portal page.

PixelGoose

I don’t quite understand. The tabs appear on all forum, CMS and blogs pages. You want to use them on other cms-software?

Default-user

I want to add the tabs in the area of like the body of the pages, not at the top. In the body itself of the pages is where I want to add them. Or in the area of the side block. Is any of that possible?

PixelGoose

Could you please contact us via our profile page and send a visual example?

Already purchased it but I’d love to see a dark version for this theme. I’m modifying it myself but it’s going to take quite some time.

PixelGoose

Hello,

No, we are not planning to create a dark version yet.

Hi

I was thinking if i could instead of a color in the navigation bar (big blue buttons and also were the logo is) have a png with repeat x ?

Best regards from iceland

PixelGoose

Hello,

Sure, you can have it. Just edit css-styles and add additional rules :)

Hello, Your theme is beautiful! I have one question right now. On the link entitled “The Team,” somehow it is listing moderators that have been deactivated or are no longer in the moderator user group. It’s like it is pulling historical results too.

Is there a simple way to only display current moderators/admins or barring that just remove “the team” link from all pages? As a side note to that, I have thought about making little bio posts for each of my team members. Would there be a way on “the team” page to include additional information other than just the list and rank?

Thanks so much!

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for the good words!

If you just want to delete the link, find the ‘overall_footer.html’ template of the theme, then just delete the following line -

<!-- IF U_TEAM --><a href="{U_TEAM}">{L_THE_TEAM}</a> • <!-- ENDIF -->

But I think there should be a way to delete unnecessary info without it. Did you try to purge the cache? It may be the reason.

>>I have thought about making little bio posts for each of my team members. Would there be a way on “the team” page to include additional information other than just the list and rank?

As a matter of fact phpbb has a huge number of addons for almost any case. And most of the can be found here – https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/modifications-1/

I thing there may be the addon you need for that :)

Thank you so much for the reply! I must commend you on your excellent and quick response! I had never seen “The Team” link – it is not active on my current forum from which I’m upgrading to your awesome theme. I didn’t realize this was a phpBB thing – thought it was something related to your theme. You took the time to answer my question anyway, which says so much about how much you care about your customers. I really appreciate it. Your theme is so incredibly beautiful and I am so pleased to have found it. And again, thank you for going above and beyond support-wise.

Hello, i wonder if i can change the color of the theme for a custom one.

can i do this on the Edit theme option on the admin control panel?

Thanks.

PixelGoose

Hello,

phpbb3 doesn’t have a theme option page. So the colors can only be changed through editing the css template files. These are the files to edit -

colours.css
common.css
content.css
cp.css
responsive.css

Hi PG luvin Metro my friend fits really well with my project.

Could you possibly point me in the right direction to change the Register link e.g. ./ucp.php?mode=register”>Register

thanks in advance
PixelGoose

Hello,

You can find it in the “overall_header.html” template. Line 192 -

<a href="{U_REGISTER}">{L_REGISTER}</a>

Hi, I found the same theme for vBulletin but for $25, tell me please which of these CMS is better in your opinion?

Thanks!

PixelGoose

Hello,

The point is that vBulletin is a commercial CMS and you have to buy a license to use it and phpbb is a completely free software. But vBulletin has lots of features that phpbb doesn’t have and if you want to add a feature like that into your phpbb3 forum, you have to manually edit lots of files sometimes. As for the rest they don’t differ much – they are modern community software.

Just purchased this, did some color and logo modifications, and it’s all looking great. However, I do not seem to have any method of quoting posts. There’s no quote button in this forum?’

Here’s the forum: http://forum.slashat.se/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1722&start=10

Hello,

The ‘quote’ button is right next to the avatar area – http://i.imgur.com/8HNJFOq.png

Please check the buttons images – maybe they are not uploaded correctly?

hi, sorry for bothering you but after about 20 installs and deinstalls I am desperated .. I installed phpbb social network and everything works so far but the information, what to copy into a new theme beside the original subsilver is not very clear and the makers of the social network are very unfriendly … could you pls just tell me what I have to copy to where when I get this message : template->_tpl_load_file(): File ./styles/metro_bw/template/socialnet/im_onlinelist.html does not exist or is empty thanks so much in advance – I am very close to purchase a professional network like fox …

PixelGoose

Hello,

>>File ./styles/metro_bw/template/socialnet/im_onlinelist.html does not exist or is empty

Is the file really located there? Did you check?

no idea – I am not a script-heroe ;-) first installed phpbb – then the social network, then after .. xxxx times it worked with the normal subsilver theme .. then I used FTP and sent your bw theme over it, installed and activated it in the admin panel, deactivated and deinstalled the subsilver and reloaded – peng, this message … so I went back and deactivated yours deinstalled yours, reinstalled subsilver – cleaned cache per c-cleaner, started new browser – but still same message … any idea what I messed up ?

installation guide of social network tells something about—you must copy all files from subsilver theme to your new theme .. but I hardly can copy the subsilver css.style to your theme because the styles would overwrite yours …

I tried adding a code from my Google AdSense ad into sidebar.html It shows a blank space. No ads from Google AdSense are working anywhere with this theme :/

PixelGoose

Hello,

AdSense is just piece of html-code. If it’s inserted correctly, it must appear in any place you paste it. Please recheck the code.

Default-user

I checked. Pasted the same code on a static html page and it works. It’s just with this theme.

PixelGoose

But the theme doesn’t have any scripts that can cause this issue. It’s build on the default phpbb3 theme and has quite a little code modification.

You are the first who says it has issues with AdSense.

Default-user

I know, I have been trying to figure out a reason for the same since morning. No luck :/

PixelGoose

OK, I’ll try to find out how to fix the issue. I’ll let you know if I find anything helpful.

PixelGoose

Just tested it on the demo forum. If I place the ad code into the ‘sidebar.html’ or ‘overall_header.html’ templates, the ads don’t show. But if I place the code into ‘index_body.html’, everything goes OK.

Default-user

oh. but why is that? i even tried in viewtopic_body.html doesn’t show

PixelGoose

‘viewtopic_body.html’ is ok too. Look here – http://phpbb3.pixelgoose.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3

PixelGoose

But it’s strange… Never heard of anything like that… Maybe an ad management plugin could help to solve it?

Default-user

I will try. Thanks.

Hey, instead of using a logo – how do I put text in its place?

I’d like to use the same font and a large size so it looks good.

Any idea?

PixelGoose

Hello,

You should find the ‘navbar’ template of your theme. Right in the beginning you’ll find the following line -

<img src="{vb:stylevar titleimage}" alt="{vb:rawphrase x_powered_by_vbulletin, {vb:raw vboptions.bbtitle}}" />

Just replace it with your text and style with css-rules.

Default-user

hey, Sorry.

I would like it to say “EMIOS.org Support Forum”

Can you give me the exact code to use? Sorry I’m not being lazy it’s just I’d rather have you do it as you coded this theme.

PixelGoose

Hello,

Just replace the code above with something like

<div id="header-title">EMIOS.org Support Forum</div>

Then style with css.

Default-user

Hi, it appears you gave me the code for the vBulletin version. This is the version for PHPbb. What is the code to find for PHPBB and where should I replace it in?

PixelGoose

Sorry, my bad!

Find the template ‘overall_header.html’, look for the following line -

<a href="{U_INDEX}" id="logo" title="{L_INDEX}">{SITE_LOGO_IMG}</a>

replace with

<a href="{U_INDEX}" id="logo" title="{L_INDEX}">EMIOS.org Support Forum</a>

Is it possible to put on the footer module the latest posts from the forum? Let’s say the last 5 or 10 posts. I would like to change the “about us” module but I don’t know what code to use there…..

When you have time please give me some instructions. Thank you

PixelGoose

Hello,

phpbb3 doesn’t have a core function like this but you can use a third party mod like this one – https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=628545

Pre-Sale : Is it really not compatible with IE 7 and below?

PixelGoose

Hello,

It will surely work with IE7 and below, but you will get some design issues. The versions just don’t support some of the modern technologies.
