Hi,

under the word “vBulletin Metro Theme by Studio PixelGoose” I’ve added the copyright, but i can’t remember how to do it :) what is the name of the template to edit?

Thanks again

PixelGoose

It should be ‘footer’.

Nice theme… I applied it this weekend and found most things I needed to modify for my site, short of this one.

Where is the css to change the text/font size, etc, of the threaddetail, ie, the “stated by: XXXX ” info under the post title on forum display?

thanks!

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for the purchase and for the kind words!

Where is the css to change the text/font size, etc, of the threaddetail, ie, the “stated by: XXXX ” info under the post title on forum display?
It’s a global Style Variable ‘small_fontSize’. And it can be changed via Style Variable Editor. But as I say it’s global. So if you change it, a lot of blocks using this small size will increase its size. So if you only need to increase this block font size, you should edit it directly via css template. You can find it inside forumbits.css template, this rule –

.forumbit_post .forumlastpost .lastpostdate {
    font-size: {vb:stylevar small_fontSize};
}

You should just set ‘font-size’ to what you need, replacing {vb:stylevar small_fontSize} to ‘13px’ for example.

Thanks for the info. It’s just THAT instance of the font specs that I’m looking to change at the moment, can’t do it globally.

Picked this up a few weeks ago, very happy with the theme and the user support, which was excellent :)!

One question – how would it behave with PhotoPost?

thx!

Hello,

The theme works with all plugins and modules. But sometimes you’ll need a little styling to match the theme.

Really liking everything so far, most issues have been resolved. One big one left that I cant figure out.

I’ve been modifying the theme a lot … but left the parent theme along. No template changes, all css. So I checked your stock version, same thing. The newpost page is perfect, all buttons, smilies, etc. all align correctly. But when you go to “go advanced” from the post reply, the entire screen is jumbled ( screen shot here: ftp://dirtrider.net//public_html/A1_BOBVO/advancedreply.png )

Thoughts?

PixelGoose

Hello,

I can’t see the screenshot – authorization required. Could you post it somewhere else?

Odd… it’s all strightened out now… I discovered html turned on for all the forums this morning and turned it off … could that have done that? BTW, that was all major & latest browsers on mac & pc, as well as an android and apple tablet. It was hosed pretty good

PixelGoose

Hello,

BTW, that was all major & latest browsers on mac & pc, as well as an android and apple tablet.
I think there was something wrong either with the templates or the forum software. I double checked the theme in major browsers and it was OK. But if the issue appears again, please let me know, I’d like to test it online.

It has that layout problem when an image or video is in the post …. it’s like the size of the attached media blows the layout.

PixelGoose

Inside the edited post or inside a post above?

Default-user
okiewan Purchased

click edit on a post…. then click go advanced, if there is an image (or whatever) in the container that holds the post you are about to edit….

make sense?

PixelGoose

Just checked it using both remote images and locally stored one but it’s OK. Did you change any default bbcodes or add any custom ones?

Can we install this theme on word press setup?

PixelGoose

Hello,

No, vBulletin is a separate software. You should install the theme via vBulletin AdminCP. Please check the theme documentation, it’s described there how to install the theme.

Default-user

Thanks.

I’m having a problem with uploading images in topics see screenshot: how can I fix this?

It’s not working in chrome, IE, firefox

PixelGoose

Hello,

Please make sure you’re using “Metro” version corresponding to vBulletin version (4.2.2 = 4.2.2).

Default-user

Yes I am using that version …

PixelGoose

Hello,

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

I have hosting with Just Host. I have two other domain names attached with this hosting.

Now i want to use this theme for my next domain. I haven’t yet bought the new one but creates a folder to attached the new domain.

/home5/yourpart/public_html/forumentertainmentisonline

Inside this folder, i have created a new folder: images and inside images folder i copied metro folder.

Now, next step in the documentation is: Log in to your forum administrator control panel and go the Styles & Templates > Download / Upload Styles section.

Where to go to find forum administrator control panel and Styles & Templates > Download / Upload Styles section

Please advice. Sorry i am very new to vBulletin.

PixelGoose

Hello,

Inside this folder, i have created a new folder: images and inside images folder i copied metro folder.
If you already installed vBulletin you should have that folder. And then when you enter your forum as an administrator you’ll see ‘Admin’ link down the page to enter AdminCP.
Default-user

As i am new to this. Please suggest.

I have bought your theme. I am happy to buy your software for $160. I have hosting and domain.

Please advice, are these things enough to bring my forum site up and running? What i mean is, do i still need a developer to help me bring this up?

PixelGoose

Hello,

As a matter of fact vBulletin is not our software, we only create themes for the CMS.

Please advice, are these things enough to bring my forum site up and running?
Sure, that’s enough. But sure, if you can’t set the forum yourself you need a developer for that. Though if you’ve already set up your domain and hosting you can install your forum yourself using this tutorial for example – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvFi_eaWZyc
Default-user

Sorry, Youtube is blocked in Pakistan. Please suggest a difference source.

Default-user

So does this mean, DATABASE stuff will also be handle automatically by the software?

PixelGoose

Sure! You just need to install it and software will take care of the rest itself.

Default-user

Bravo. Thanks.

I have made the big Navbar buttons (forum, articles etc) a little smaller, and I am trying to figure out how I can align=center the text inside the buttons. I have tried to use “text-align: center;” in every possible css setting, but the “Articles, forum, Whats new” is still aligned to the left in the buttons. Can you tell me what to change?

What is the width in the fixed version? How do I change it? Is it wrong if I change to 1000px for example?

The problem is to change the side bar to 300px and the forum is way too small. In fluid is way too big.

Thanks!

PixelGoose

Hello,

The width of the fixed version is 950px. And you can change it as you want. You just need to edit one StyleVariable -

ACP – Styles & Templates – Style Manager – YOUR_THEME – Style Variable Editor – Global – doc_width

Hello, Very thanks! Sorry, I make two queries please:

I add a tab in Navigation Manager but does not darken when entering the page. How should I do? Is possible to change the default icon for other I like?

The second is: I have problems with vBadvanced. The navbar is not displayed. In vba options I can disable the navbar, but I remove all the header. http://i.imgur.com/eLtdiKh.jpg

Thanks for your time and sorry for my english.

PixelGoose

Hello,

Just edit the menu item using this guide – http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=2333206&postcount=4

The second is: I have problems with vBadvanced. The navbar is not displayed.
You just need to add a single submenu item and the issue will be fixed.

Thanks, but I do not how it’s done. Sorry.

TAB: Should I create a plugin? What would be the content?

I have installed this: mysite.com/index.php (vbadvanced 4.2.1) mysite.com/foros/index.php (vbulletin 4.2.2)

vBadvanced: I did not understand. Should I add a submenu in the navbar?

Hello, I would like to say that your template is one of the best I’ve seen. It took me a long time to decide which to use. There were 3 choices, and it took me awhile. What I love about yours is the different color templates to chose from, and the clear indications on what to click. What would be nice is on your live preview, you have those squares that allows you to click on for a different color. Any way for us to be able to use that?

Also, the logo.psd file seems to be really small. If I were to add my own logo onto the site with the same size as what you have it now, will it make it bigger automatically? How would you recommend on making a logo?

Thank you for making this amazing logo.

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for the purchase and for your kind words! We are glad you like our work!

What would be nice is on your live preview, you have those squares that allows you to click on for a different color. Any way for us to be able to use that?
It’s only a raw html-code for demonstration purposes. But if you want, I can send you the code and instructions on installation. If so, just contact us via our profile page.

If I were to add my own logo onto the site with the same size as what you have it now, will it make it bigger automatically? How would you recommend on making a logo?
Yes, you should just replace the default logo with your image of any size and it will automatically appear with the right size.
Default-user

Oh, that is wonderful! So, I can use any size of an image and it will adjust itself automatically to the right location?

Default-user

Thanks so much. I sent you a message. :)

Default-user

How do you change the logo? I don’t see it in the instructions. Also, did you receive my email?

PixelGoose

Hello,

I replied you! Please check your inbox :)

I having issues with the side bar color change code. The format of how I installed the color templates are different from what you have set up. I tried to fix it but it’s not coming out right. Any ideas?

Noticed a font issue using Internet Explorer 10 and 11. The Post Quick Reply, Go Advanced, and Cancel buttons do not use the Open Sans font.

Can confirm this is only an IE issue. Buttons display properly using Safari in OSX, FF and Chrome in Windows, and FF and Chrome in Linux Mint.

Oh. And one more request. While most of our users are loving the new theme, some are wanting a darker tone. Would a “dark” Black and White theme be possible?

PixelGoose
Would a “dark” Black and White theme be possible?

Do you mean “inverted” colors?

Default-user

I guess? You know users, they never say. I guess a darker background. Making it easier for night viewing. While most really like the theme with the colour options (us owners of the site do to, why we licensed it :) ) they say its too bright for their viewing.

PixelGoose

We may release such version but I can’t say when it will happen :)

Hi, sorry for the trouble, I have fixed it with the following thread: AdminCP -> vBulletin Options -> Thread Display Options (showthread) -> Number of Characters Before Wrapping Text set that to 0.

Sorry for all the trouble. Thank you for your help and the great work!
