Discussion on Metro — A Responsive Theme for phpBB3

435 comments found

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.

Hi there, It is possible to convert this theme to a BBpress theme?

great theme Cheers

PixelGoose

Hello,

Sorry, we are not planning it that at the moment.

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,

Mike

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

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 ?

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.

We were glad to help you! Feel free to contact us anytime you have any question :)

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

It’s described in the documentation. Please look at the ‘How do I add my own logo?’ section there.

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
PixelGoose

Hello,

Thanks for the purchase!

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?

Found the problem, had to duplicate the en folder in imageset and rename to sv (+ translate), since we’re running the forum in swedish. Thanks for fast reply though!

ok just sent another message PixelGoose let me know if you received it .

PixelGoose

Ok, got it now :)

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

‘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,

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.
