Hello,

Im having some spacing issues with my footer links running off to the right. As well as both sides (left and right) of forum running off. How can i fix this please. I dont think ive touched any of the defaults with the theme.

Hello,

Did you change the background color? You just have to add some right and left padding to the footer block.

Default-user

I uploaded a background image…

Default-user

the footer block is the in stylegenerator.css?

PixelGoose

You don’t even have to edit css-templates. You can just edit ‘footer_padding’ stylevar.

Default-user

awww doh ok thanks:)

Default-user

and one last thing and I think my forums is pretty much done and ready to go WOOT!

I had to change the color of my middle header background to a light color so that my logo did not clash. As a result the forum home and whats new icons when not chosen blend in :(

How can i resolve this without having to go with a dark background color? Preferable make them brown all the time?

Also Id like to get rid of the separator above the navbar and beside each navbar tab.

PixelGoose

Hello,

You should add color to the tabs. You can do it by editing css-rules for ’.navtabs > li’. You can find it in the ‘additional.css’ template of your theme.

Default-user

thanks im a bit unsure what exactly im changing and how as i tried replacing the last line of this and it did nothing.

from: } #vbtab_whatsnew > a { background-position: left 0 !important; }

To:

} #vbtab_whatsnew > a { background-position: left 0 !important; background: #34126; }

PixelGoose

Add this -

.navtabs > li {
background-color: YOUR_COLOR;
}

I have the vbulletin skin. Is there anyway you can do up a quick static HTML template of this so I can make a dummy page that I need for my vbulletin site? I don’t want to make a custom vulletin page…. only a static one.

Thanks!

PixelGoose

Hello,

You can just save the page and upload it to your server (with all the images and styles).

Default-user

Gee thanks.

Could you please tell me which stylevar it is that changes the backgrounds of the headers for the sidebar and widgets? It’s black on Metro and I want to change it to something else. Can’t find it anywhere. Have uploaded a pic to tinypic of the Activity Stream widget, it’s the black bar across the top that holds the title…

PixelGoose

Hello,

You should look for ’#sidebar_container .blocksubhead’ element in the ‘sidebar.css’ template.

PixelGoose

Hello,

By default there’s only one button in a thread – “Reply to thread”. How did you add the second one? Is it a custom modification?

Hello,

Thank you for the purchase!

It seems you didn’t upload the images properly. Try to reupload them in the proper folder.

I’ve installed the style but their are several Problems with the navbar. The buttons are put together and overlapping and so on. But only for a few user. For me everything is fine. I think it has to do with different screen solutions but not sure. I use in doc_width the paramter 80%. Till 950 pixel it overlaps for me too after 1050 px it’s fine. Now with 80% the problems which I described.

What can I do

Default-user

I fixed the problem. The search in header was the problem. I’ve deleted it. But it there another solution by keeping it?

PixelGoose

Hello,

It seems some of your members have long nicknames. I think you should just decrease the font size of the header nicknames. It could help.

Default-user

The problem is still there for some Users, also for Users with short nicknames. E.g. one of them with 6 characters has the problem one with 13 characters in nickname does not.

PixelGoose

Could you please contact us via our profile page and send us a link to your forum?

Default-user

It was my mistake. I forgot to fix the width. Now everything is working fine. I do not have installed the fluid theme so it is of course not possible to use the width in percent.

I have an issue with the Activity Stream – some people’s avatars appear too large and block some of the text.. Any ideas why? Avatars were set to 150×150px and I’ve reduced them to 100×100px, but it seems those with external avatars are messing up the formatting..

This works for 4.2.1?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Yes, this theme is fully compatible with vBulletin 4.2.1

Default-user

Ok bought it. Side note: Instructions say: Upload the folder “metro” to your web server using an FTP client. The folder must be placed to yoursite.com/images/.

But my forums are installed in the webroot in another folder.. so Do i still install it within images?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for the purchase!

>>But my forums are installed in the webroot in another folder.. so Do i still install it within images?

You have to put the ‘metro’ folder into the “images” folder of your FORUM installation. It your forum is installed in other folder – just put it there.

Default-user

Nice it worked. Is there an online instructions where i can change theme color?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Most of the colors can be changed by editing StyleVars – http://www.vbulletin.com/vbcms/content.php/290-How-To-Find-a-StyleVar-%28video-version

But some of the colors are in the css templates of the theme – AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > YOUR_THEME > Edit templates > CSS templates. You can replace them quite fast just using “Search and Replace” tool.

Default-user

Hi, I tried looking, but couldn’t exactly find how to change the color of the theme? Is there no easy way of doing that?

Default-user

Also, how do I make the forum more full screen like in the demo? With the sidebar, when it closes it becomes longer as well, looks much better than forums.techin5.com now

PixelGoose

Hello,

>>I tried looking, but couldn’t exactly find how to change the color of the theme?

The only way to change theme colors is through visual StyleVars or directly through css-templates.

>>Also, how do I make the forum more full screen like in the demo?

Just use a fluid version of the theme.

Default-user

When I click to use fluid version, it randomly goes back to default vbulletin theme. Did I install it incorrectly?

When I tried to install Metro Green Fluid, the theme was blue??

PixelGoose

Hello,

Yes, it seems you didn’t install the theme properly. Try to reinstall in due to the documentation.

Default-user

Hi, Re-installed the Metro Fluid, but please see – http://i.imgur.com/exP4zKN.png

When I choose ‘Metro Gold Fluid’, The fluid theme is active, but ONLY the blue color comes out. Why is that?

PixelGoose

Hello,

As I see, you install the fluid theme as a child of Metro Blue, but you have to install it as a child theme to the Metro Green (Gold, etc). Each color variation have it’s own child fluid theme.

How can I…

1.) Change the fonts everywhere and in the posts? 2.) change the height of the navtabs? I was not able to do this. I’ve changed it in additional.css and in the stylevariables but it doesn’t work. Can you explain it more detailled please? 3.) for your information: I think the problem with the search-buttons on frontpage is generally. It collaps e.g. with the facebook-connect button.

Default-user

3.) Is it possible to change the Linkcolor and background color of the prefooter without changing the colors of other links and backgrounds?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Please contact us via our profile page, we’ll explain how to achieve all this.

Hello,

Loving the mobile version but for some reason it does not display groups as an option. How can i make it so that the options page includes groups? Willing to replace it with articles if needed.

Beverly

PixelGoose

Hello,

Unfortunately, vBulletin doesn’t allow to see ‘group’ page in mobile view. This page is only available in full view. You can test it with the default theme. You can ask this question on the http://vbulletin.com/. If there is a way to show the page, we could help you to style it.
