How do you make forum block like “Buy «Metro Theme» on themeforest”?

PixelGoose

Hello,

It’s just a piece of raw html-code pasted into the sidebar. But there’s a good ad manager inside vBulletin, you can use it for your banners!

Default-user

I know, it’s on Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Blocks Manager. But how can you make it borderless? Also without the title… Custom template for that particular block?

PixelGoose

It’s pasted directly inside ‘forumhome’ template. You can find “sidebar_container” there and add there your image. But sure it’s not very convenient.

Hi pixelgoose. I did a search for “resize” but didn’t throw up anything with my problem.

I purchased and installed metro on my forum (bordersdown.net) – style is called BDv4(beta).

In the normal style I can resize the text entry window e.g. quick reply box, using the little arrow shaped thing in the bottom right of the window.

However in the metro style, it doesn’t work. Please advise? Much appreciated.

PixelGoose

Hello,

Could you please create a test account for me and send login and pass via our profile page? I need to have a look at the text box.

Default-user

Done!

Default-user

This must have been a problem at my end – today it’s working. Sorry to bother you.

PixelGoose

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

Trying to moderate threads. I check box each individual thread, but under the “Moderation Tools” button at the bottom it remains at 0. So when you click it, it takes you to a page that says “You did not select any valid threads”

Hello,

Thank you for the purchase!

Do you have JS enabled in your browser? And what browser are you using?

I made some changes in the theme. I can not find where I made a mistake

PixelGoose

If you remember which templates you edited, you should revert them – AdminCP – Styles & Templates – Style Manager – YOUR_STYLE – Edit Templates – YOUR_TEMPLATE – Revert button (to the right). Or you need to reinstall the theme.

PixelGoose

One notice – edited templates are highlighted red, so it would not be difficult for you to find them.

How to fix Google font rendering problem in Google Chrome?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Here’s a quick solution – http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10953037/google-webfonts-render-choppy-in-chrome-on-windows?answertab=active#tab-top

But until Google implements better rendering we can hardly do anything.

Hello PixelGoose,

I Like your themes.

is it possible to customize it, like this one > kmplayer.com or can you please create another good one.

PixelGoose

Hello,

It’s possible to customize, but it will take too much time to work. As for such kind of style, I think I’ve seen somewhere a ready to install Mac-style theme. You should ask about it on vbulletin.com forum.

Hello, how to change font size only for content of post- http://grabilla.com/03c1c-ab0e6aed-ea78-4f25-b06e-f09756b7137a.png
PixelGoose

Hello,

You should use css for that. You can try something like this -

blockquote.postcontent {
    font-size: 14px;
}

Hello,

First of all thank you for this beautiful theme.

I wanted to know, can I remove “vBulletin Metro Theme by PixelGoose Studio” from the footer of my forums.

Thanks,

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for the purchase and for the good words!

Yes, you can remove it.

Default-user

Hello,

Thanks, how do I go about it.

Regards,

PixelGoose

It’s inside ‘footer’ template: AdminCP – Styles & Templates – Style Manager – YOUR_STYLE – Edit Templates – footer.

Default-user

Thanks, that did the trick.

Ability to create a new color theme? How hard is this to do, is there a single location to change the color easily?

PixelGoose

Hello,

It’s not so difficult, though it’ll take some time. First of all colors are stored inside Style Variables – you’ll have to go through all of theme and change manually, second – some of the color codes are stored inside css-templates, so you’ll be able to replace theme via “Find and Replace” options – and this part is quite fast.

Default-user

Thanks, did most of them. Can’t find the style reference used for Foot Block 3 & 4? Where can the variable to change these?

PixelGoose

Hello,

You can find the styling inside ‘metro_theme_prefooter_blocks.css’ template.

Thanks, but can not find a reference in the violetred theme to the VioletRed color in that file you referenced? (ie. #C71585). Is the color in the block 3/4 done via a graphic file? Thanks for the advice on what to change…

PixelGoose

Here it is. It’s the ‘background-color’ and it uses the common link color.

.column-right {
    background-color: {vb:stylevar link_color};
    padding: 24px 12px;
    border-left: solid 12px #F6F6F6;
    vertical-align: top;
}

If you want you can replace it with a hex-code, it could look like -

background-color: #C71585;

Thanks, that fixed that one. One last one, where is the color that effects the forum table on this page? You’ll see it works just fine on forum home, not sure why it doesn’t work inside of a forum…

PixelGoose

It’s ‘threadlisthead_background’ style variable.

I have another question :

How do you change the icons in the navigation of blogs, forums, what’s new etc ? Thanks -)

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.

Default-user

Thank you !

Is it possible to have the color scheme randomized with each page load?

PixelGoose

Hello,

I think it’s possible. You can load random theme each time.

Hi there is there a huge difference with vbulletin vs phpbb? Which would you recommend for a beginner?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for you interest to our work! I would recommend vBulletin – it has much more features and options from box. The same options are available for phpbb3 too, but quite often you only get them by installing third-party mods. In addition while installing those mods you need to edit the phpbb3 files directly (99% of vBulletin mods are installed automatically).

Default-user

Wow thanks for the info. I notice phpbb is a free source however the vBulletin is 249.00. By any chance does this theme include the vbulletin? Or is my info wrong? greatly appreciate it.

PixelGoose

Yes, that’s right it’s only a theme. If you need a vBulletin license you should buy it on vbulletin.com. And frankly speaking it’s rather expensive.

Hello,

We need help.. for some reason [quote] BB code isn’t working on our forums.. the quoted message does not differentiate from the original message they look very ugly. I have seen other forums with the same theme and it seems to be working fine for them therefore I am sure that the problem is only limited to us.

An example can be seen HERE

We will appreciate if you can let us know what we have done wrong.

Thanks,

PixelGoose

Hello,

Something ruins the code. There should be ‘class’ string there. Did you install any plugins that could interfere with the code?

Default-user

Thanks for your reply.. Yes, I have installed a couple of them:

—GlowHost – Spam-O-Matic —MonkeyStop Keyword and URL Moderation

I am not sure but I also have Panjo enabled in the list, something that I did not install.

These plugins are especially to stop spammers, do you think any of these are the problem.

Thanks once again

PixelGoose

Try to disable all the plugins temporarily and check the theme. If it doesn’t help, we’ll try something else.

Default-user

Hello,

I have tried disabling all plugins but it did not help. what do you suggest next..?

Sorry for the delayed reply.

Thanks,

PixelGoose

Check the bbcode_quote template. And look for those classes – do they look ok inside the template?

I am kinna noobie and I do not know how to add new icon to the png file nav-icons.psd and assing it. Can I just replace the + icon?

Thanks!

Hello,

Thanks for the kind words and for the purchase!

Can I just replace the + icon?
Sure, if you only need one icon, you can replace that ‘plus’ icon!

Hello! I just bought your theme, its awesome but I have a few questions. My website-forum-logo its bigger than 100px of height.

How Can I change this height (and the color) in order to put correctly my logo? If you need more info of the website, just tell me it.

Screenshot of what I want to change (the “blue metro” box): http://gyazo.com/f1cc586b9740b995bf5f7c5dbd9e4973.png

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for the purchase!

Just replace the default logo image images/metro/YOUR_COLOR/misc/vbulletin4_logo.png with your image. That’s all!

Default-user

No, that’s not the problem. I know how to replace the logo, but my logo is bigger than the blue space. I want to know how to to make the blue part highest. I dont know if you know what i mean. Because if I put my logo (that is higher than 120px) protrudes up.

Default-user

And also, if you can tell me where I can change the phrase of “login to your account” to another in spanish… (Screenshoot: http://gyazo.com/0fa612a842ddcf0ac8cc425a20960077.png) I looked on the vBulletin ACP but i did not find it.

Installed a product by VB Advanced (Links), and can not figure out why the theme is not correct in the upper navbar (too tall), and does not stay highlighted (like other tabs)?

http://www.christianmom.com/links/

Any advice on how to fix? also, when I look at std. VB4 default theme, it works correct….

Thanks for your advice…

Did you add the tab via the default navigation manager of via a third-party plugin?

default navigation manager in adminCP

PixelGoose

Hello,

I checked your forum. The item is not highlighted with the default style too. Here’s a quick tutorial on setting new menu items – http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum/vbulletin-4/vbulletin-4-questions-problems-and-troubleshooting/413049-navigation-parent-not-highlighted-when-child-is-clicked

As for the height. You should add a submenu link to that menu item and the header will look alright!

Hello,

No, we don’t have such plans. But you can do it yourself – mainly you’ll have to change some css-rules.
