Hello,

The arrows can be easily replaced. As for the header modification – do you want to place additional information into the header or you just need to add some addons to the theme?

Thanks for reply!You did a greate work! like way of thinking and organizing space!Hope to pay you for well done job! I think space near LOGO can be used more effective!!!Now there is no any >div< but you can put there somthing as slider or link list or else usefull content

PixelGoose

The point is that the header has white space depending on number of tabs and the logo. Because some people use quite wide logo images, so there could be problems with enough space in the header.

Hey, how do I change the icons in the main menu navigation? I want to switch out the standard “plus sign” with something else.

Awesome theme. I really dig it though I have an issue I can’t figure out. For some reason my social icons aren’t showing up when every other image is.

Hello,

Thank you for the purchase!

Can you contact us via our profile page and send a link to your forum? I need to have a look at the code.

I am having a hard time with the icons on the navbar tabs. The only vBulletin tab that is standard is the Forum Index tab, but my other four are custom. On those four the Plus Icons is displayed.

How can I change those to the other ones you have?

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.

Hi, great theme ;)

I have 1 problem. The forum icons, non displayed in the title. Why? In the acp, “Forum Icon Configuration” path to the icon image is ok.

Thanks.

PixelGoose

Hello,

Can you show a screenshot of the issue?

PixelGoose

Is this an addon?

Pulling my hair out here… How do I change the URL of the header logo? It points to the forum by default and I want it to point to the homepage.

Tried changing {vb:link forumhome} to {vb:raw vboptions.homeurl} in Header, no luck. Any ideas?

Figured it out.

Style Manager >> Variable Editor >> Modify User Option Templates >> Navbar

Using mod above, success!!

Thank you for the purchase! And feel free to contact us if you still have any questions :)

Can anyone recommend some image libraries for the Navigation that are in the same style of the theme?

PixelGoose

Hello,

You can use some of the shapes from Font Awesome. They fit well!

Can we add .jpg/ .png type logo? how to add logo?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Yes, you can add any type of logo image (jpg, png etc).

Hello

The style color chooser we see on the demo is it only for the demo or can we have it somehow to our forums?

PixelGoose

Hello,

It’s for demonstration purposes only. It’s just a piece of raw html-code. But if you’ll need it, we could send the code to you.

Default-user

Thank you very much! It looks nice theme and I’m considering buying it. Your style chooser, although you have used it for demonstration, is a nice alternative for the current style chooser which is old and boring. It will be good to reconsider its use. :)

Another thing I would like to ask is if there are going to be future updates or will that happen only if a new vb version comes up?

PixelGoose

Yes, we are going to support the theme as long as it’s popular. And we are planning to create a vB5 version too.

Hi can this theme work on vb5? interested in buying this theme. Thanks

PixelGoose

Hello,

No, it’s only compatible with vB4. But we are planning to create a vB5 version as soon as vB5 is more stable.

How do you configure a CMS page as Homepage so that the CMS navtab is not selected when you view?

PixelGoose

The problem is a tab assigned to a page will be highlighted anyway if you’re visiting the page. It’s set as ‘selected’ and it’s selected for both pages in your case. Unfortunately vBulletin doesn’t give any additional classes or id’s depending on a certain page…

hmm… Seems like we’re close. Your first recommendation turned it off. Any way we can make that one tab aware or page aware? Thanks again for all your help, such a massive product, really awesome stuff!!

The best thing to do is to have only one tab per page. If we create two pages with the save location, we can have problems and conflicts.

Amazing theme. We’re very happy with it. How can we change it from “metro” in the header to our website name instead?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for the purchase and for the good words!

“Metro” is an image logo. So you should just create own logo. Here’s a video tutorial how to do it – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9tsMHO4R_w

I Love this theme, I have it running for the last few months on VB 4.2 Will this run on VB 5 ? Any plans to update it?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Yes, we plan to create a vB5 version of this theme, but we want vB5 to become more stable. It’s so unaccomplished yet…

Hi support, I would like to be able to reduce the width of the .navtabs but can not remember where to change. you can get some help?

thanks

PixelGoose

Hello,

It’s in the ‘vbulletin-chrome.css’ template of your theme. Find the following line -

.navtabs li a.navtab {

Hi,

I bought this theme, but I’m running vB5 (didn’t see the themes were not compatible with 4.2). However, I can do some code. Are the 2 engines that different? Is it possible for me to kind of hack it and make it work on vB5? Also, when do you guys plan on releasing a vB5 version?

Thanks!

PixelGoose

Hello,

Unfortunately, vB4 and vB5 themes are completely incompatible. We planned to release a vB5 version too, but stopped creating it because vB5 is so unstable. But we still have plans to release it. I hope it will be ready by Christmas.

Default-user

Ah bummer, but thank you for the reply!

Hi,

I want to replace the About us and Links box to 1 image. Is this possible?

Greetings Roger

PixelGoose

Hello,

Sure, you can. You should disable the Links block and put your image inside ‘About us’ block.

Logo image

Hi, in one of your posts here you said the below

Hello,

You should alter ‘left’ and ‘bottom’ properties of the .logo-image class. It’s positioned absolutely.

I need to know how to get to this to be able to alter it as my logo image is to far one way and the other.

thnks

Default-user

not to worry ive done it.

PixelGoose

Hello,

OK, feel free to contact us if you still have any questions!

The theme looks great. :) Good Job. :)

Few Doubts: Does this theme come with HTML files? We are interested in using it for an ASP.NET application.

PixelGoose

Hello,

No, it’s a vBulletin 4 theme without html-templates.

Sent email w/o response. Need to know how to change/add icons with menu additions…also how to enlarge forum title, description and last post fonts on forum home. Thanks

PixelGoose

Hello,

Sorry for delay. I’ve answered you, check your inbox.

Thank you!

Hello, I have a forum that is mostly free but has some forums that are for paid subscribers only-reading the license agreement I am not sure if I can use your $25 license or not? It seems to say I can’t charge a subscription to my website and use this?

PixelGoose

Hello,

You can use the theme for any kind of forum – free or paid subscribers without any restriction!
