HI, fantastic style, thanks.

I have sent you a couple of messages but i now have another problem.

I have a custom Game Reviews mod which lets members rate and review ps3 games. on my previous style, supernova, it looked fantastic, however after importing my game_review.css into the stylesheet.css all my H3(headings) text, fonts and sizes text wont inherit, even though i have rules for them in my css, they stay the same as the main styles, i never had this problem with supernova, its as though its ignoring my css file. Any ideas??

Just a suggestion concerning the available social media networks that can be placed in the prefooter area. Are there any plans to make graphics that fit in with the theme for other networks like Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, etc?

I’m considering making my own or finding a reasonable similar set of graphics and customizing the CSS to my needs, but it would be even nicer if they were officially supported. :D

Hello,

Yes, we plan to add other social icons too)

Hi, I love the look of this theme and I am highly considering purchasing it.

Is there any plan to add retina ready icons and buttons. I think this will really make the theme even more fantastic.

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for your interest. Yes, we plan to add retina support.

Hello, Nice theme and I am considering buying it. Does the regular license purchase come with the full source code for the theme?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for your interest.

When you buy the theme, you get the theme in phpbb3 template format and all the graphics in psd-format.

Hello,

Default-user

No, i havent touched css, if you tell me file to check i will upload a fresh copy.

PixelGoose

Could you send me a link to your forum? I need to have a look at the code. You could do it via our profile page.

Default-user

I dont mind doing it here, is only visible when on index page and metro style is default style though so you would need to create an account. http://www.ps3coffindodgers.com

Default-user

Sorry, meant to say metro is not default style yet as theres a few things i need to fix/sort first

Could you please create an account for me and send login/pass via the contact form?

Hi! In which file is the text for the titlebar, so I can change it from “yourdomain.com” to my website’s name?

PixelGoose

Hello,

You can change it in the AdminCP – just edit you forum name there in the settings.

hi,

i’ve got one question more :)

I use the board with an fullscreen background and it looks amazing. My Problem is, that the header logo and the navigation quarters have an space which ist complete white, and that looks not so nice. Also the same problem i have with the prefooters, the have also a white space between the left and the right side. Could you help me, where i can change this to transparent?

Here you can take a look: http://cruze-forum.de thanks a lot.

Hi,

Is it possible to edit the link buttons’ names (e.g. replace “news” for something else)?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Please contact us from the account you used to buy the theme. We only help verified customers.

Default-user

I just purchased it.

How can I adapt the theme to another language (Portuguese)?

Thanks a lot.

Default-user

Actually, I already figured it out.

But I still don’t know how to adapt the “new topic” button to Portuguese. It just vanishes after I change the language.

Thanks!

PixelGoose

Hello,

But I still don’t know how to adapt the “new topic” button to Portuguese. It just vanishes after I change the language.

You should just rename ‘en’ folder (it’s inside ‘imageset’ folder) into ‘pt’.

Default-user

Thank you so much. That was great help of yours.

Could I ask you one more question? I’m having trouble trying to install the PSD icon links in the header. How can it be done?

Thanks again!

PixelGoose

Hello,

The icons are stored in the following file -

images/metro/COLOR_THEME/misc/nav-icons-bg.png.

It’s a sprite (http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_image_sprites.asp). The PSD-file containing the icons is called “nav-icons.psd”. You can add own icons to the sprite and assign them to the tabs you want using css-rules. All the css-rules for the tabs can be found in the ‘additional.css’ template of your theme.

That is you should just add extra 120px (for each icon) into ‘nav-icons-bg.png’ and then assign it via css.

Default-user

Thanks a lot for the information. I must confess I am completely unskilled in this whole thing.

Would it be possible for me to hire you to add a couple links in the header of my forum? I guess I could learn from that.

I don’t know much about phpBB3. I would like to purchase the theme but was wondering if it comes in an HTML version.

destinesystems

...in order to use with another system.

Hello,

Sorry, but this is only a phpbb3 theme. We don’t have an html-version.

Hello, Presale Question. i have some question, I would like to purchase the theme but is mobile style support notifications ? likes .. PM and topic prefix ? on mobile or table viewing ?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for your interest!

Yes, the mobile view has the same notifications as the desktop one. Here’s a screenshot – http://i.imgur.com/OPCwEkZ.png

Default-user

how about topic prefix ? have any screenshot ? thanks.

PixelGoose

Do you mean a mod like this? – https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/topic_prefix_mod/

Yes, it’s also possible to implement.

I need help on the installation. I uploaded it to styles and I see it in there but when i click install it says Cannot find style on filesystem.

PixelGoose

Hello,

Can you post a screenshot of the issue?

Default-user

Just tried it again and it’s working now not sure what was happening yesterday.

I do have another question. I need to change the red color to a warmer one for branding purposes I was able to go through all the psd files and change the red for the icons etc. Where do I change the color for headers navigation etc

Thanks!

PixelGoose

Ok! Feel free to contact us if you still have any questions!

Default-user

I do have another question about changing the colors. it is in my previous response

PixelGoose

Hello,

All the colors are stored in css-template files. Here are the files -

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

You can just use a mass replace – it’s quite easy and fast.

Default-user

Hi, I opened up the all files in dreamweaver and did a search and replace for the #b21a41 color and changed it. I uploaded that edited version but when i load it I’m still getting the original pink color

Default-user

Hmmm nevermind for some reason it’s not even showing the edited one as an option. The one I was loading is the default metro_red theme with the #b21a41 even though I never uploaded the original metro_red to my styles folder.

PixelGoose

Did you try to clear the theme cache? You can do it here: ACP – Styles – Style Components – Themes – YOUR_THEME – Refresh

Default-user

Yup got it! Thanks so much!

Gah!!! I wish you had a MyBB version of this. I love MyBB but all the themes, including “premium” ones, have design quirks that just ruin the entire experience (they all feel like 1995 design schemes or modern-”ish” themes with strange and unpleasing quirks). I’ve been trying to customize a few with different ones but as I’m a bookie type of guy and in no way artsy, my iterations keep coming out amateurish and weird. Metro’s design is just so perfectly modern, the mobile version is great, and I think as a last resort I may have to trash the idea of MyBB and go for phpBB…

You’ll get a purchase from me soon, I bet.

Default-user

The Live Preview is broken, by the way…

PixelGoose

Hello,

I’m sorry to say but we don’t have plans to create a MyBB Metro version at the moment. MyBB still has an old-style table layout and it would not be so easy to create a fully responsive design.

PixelGoose
The Live Preview is broken, by the way…

Do you have any issues with it?

Default-user

still has an old-style table layout and it would not be so easy to create a fully responsive design.[/quote]

So that explains the backwardness! Thank you, I’ll seriously look into phpBB since MyBB 1.8 and 2.0 seem a good while away.

Live Preview is broken, by the way…[/quote]

Argh, sorry about the Live Preview bit. I was getting a “DNS not resolved” error, but the page loads fine when I go through a VPN. Probably a problem with my ISP.

PixelGoose
So that explains the backwardness!

Yes, we can try to rebuild the html-structure, but for many users it will be quite difficult to install some mods then.

Default-user

OK, there’s really no question that this is the most visually appealing and functional theme ever. I look forward to using it!

PixelGoose

Thank you for the purchase! We are glad you chose our work. Feel free to contact us if you need any assistance :)

Good day,

I have installed the theme, realy like it! Realy responsive on my phone, wil be a great deal for my community. There comes the but :P, I have installed http://phpbbsocialnetwork.com/ a social platform for Phpbb3, and the theme is not compatible with it, okey didnt expect it :P but i would like it to be :D.

The Activity page like it is now, is just a page with everything below eachother, tabs, modules and stuff are not on the place were normaly prosilver_style has them, like on the printscreens from phpbbsocialnetworks.

There is a extra page “activitypage.php”, i quess i have to connect the stylesheet from Metro in anyway.. Ok i know my way in css, but to connect them, i realy dont now, i am playing with the files a while but cannot figure it out.

I hope you could join in the social platform, or help me in any other way :)

Thanx

Ophidian

I think this is a common problem within, the “Social” program. Did not work with my prosilver to so or i did something wrong or its theirs. Hope i will get it work with your great theme!

PixelGoose

Hello,

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

Yes, phpbbsocialnetwork has some style issues because it’s using own css-rules. And the original Metro css-styles are included in it – you just have to change some css-rules to match the main theme.

If you still have any difficulties or questions, feel free to contact us via our profile page!

Does this theme come with the ‘Members’ and ‘News’ Mods???

If so, I’ll be getting it.

PixelGoose

Hello,

‘Members’ is a default part of phpbb3. But ‘News’ tab is for demonstration purposes only.

Default-user

Thanks for the reply!

If I were to purchase a 3rd party mod for news and blogs would they fit into the metro theme?

PixelGoose

Yes, all the 3rd party mods work OK with the theme. But you may need to give additional styling for some of the mods. As you see the header is quite different from the default phpbb3 theme, so some mods working with the header part (there isn’t much of them) will need some modification. But you can always contact us if you need any assistance.

Default-user

Sounds Good! Thanks for the reply, boss. Just gotta find the right mods and we’re in business.

ok, a couple of issues:

1) seems the #subheader-menu li background image is not showing on large screens – perhaps that’s the idea, but itIS showing in IE8 and completely blocking the text-based links in the submenu. Can this be fixed, thanks.

2) Seems the main site logo is not showing in correct position (at all!) in IE8. Can this be fixed, thanks.

I know you write that you don’t support IE8 on this style, but hey – Seems these are small CSS fixes for somebody with your skills :-) – my userbase is 99% IE8 the next 6-9 months, so it would be very nice if I could use this style for the new support-forum. Thanks !

PixelGoose

Hello,

I’ll test it and try to fix the issues :)

Default-user

Thank you !

you wouldn’t happen to know if your theme works with mchat would you?

PixelGoose

Hello,

It will work, but it may need additional styling, I think.

Default-user

instead of mchat I went with ishoutbox. I’m trying to embed the shout box into a sidebar. My sidebars now appear below right above the footer instead of on the sides. I’m guessing this is because my chatbox is too wide?? Do you think that is my problem? and if so what width should i set my chatbox to so it fits.

here is my forum http://www.community.fear-guild.com

thank you

PixelGoose

Hello,

As I see you just didn’t install the sidebar properly. You should follow the steps from the documentation exactly as it’s written there. Now you sidebar is pasted below footer.

Default-user

ok maybe im not reading it correctly but I thought I followed instructions exactly so where did I go wrong? how do i paste code here for you to look over?

Default-user

edit

pasting code failure

PixelGoose

Hello,

Now you have the sidebar code inserted after the footer. And it must be just before the main block. There’s a special comment inside the template -

<!-- Sidebar goes below -->
So you just insert in below the comment. Read the documentation, it’s described there quite clearly.
PixelGoose

Yes, it’s looks OK… Could you try to use the default ‘tabs.html’ template for a test? It seems there’s something wrong with your tabs.html.

Default-user

yes it works with the default tabs.html I will try to re do my tabs.

PixelGoose

OK! Let me know if you still need any help.

I’m trying to buy your theme from Nigeria but the two payment methods (Skrill and Paypal) don’t accept cards from Nigeria. Is there any other way I can make payment from Nigeria?
