Hello guys,

I am new to vBulletin and want to purchase it and get the Metro Theme for both Desktop and Mobile. But I need to be sure of the way Metro Mobile Theme works before purchase since the responsive Metro Theme for vB5 is not released yet:

  • Has everybody here installed the mobile version and it works as expected?
  • Does the mobile version automatically detects mobile devices and open the vb4 with the mobile version when both desktop and mobile version installed and active?

Please advise.

Hello,

Thank you for your interest to our work!

Has everybody here installed the mobile version and it works as expected?
You can see the mobile version installed on our demo forum – http://vb4.pixelgoose.com/forum.php?styleid=36 It’s build upon the default vB4 mobile theme and fully working. If you want, I can create a test account for you to see it as a forum member.

Does the mobile version automatically detects mobile devices and open the vb4 with the mobile version when both desktop and mobile version installed and active?
Yes, it works in this way. Just go to http://vb4.pixelgoose.com/ with a desktop browser and with a mobile one and you see how it works.

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

Hello,

Sorry, vBulletin mobile themes do not support RTL languages.

hi. the defualt vbulletin mobile skin support it. can i somehow try it before i buy ?

PixelGoose

If so, Metro Mobile should support RTL too – it’s build upon the default vBulletin mobile theme and the structure wasn’t changed.

Do you have a hebrew language pack? I could install it and give you access to the demo forum.

Ok this is the first time I will be installing a theme on VB, I recently began managing an existing Forum and looking to update to have a mobile version. The site currently has an attractive design. So here is my question: is there a page I can look at that gives me a step by step process for installing this theme? I purchased it several months ago and stopped trying to install if after the first couple of days.

PixelGoose

Hello,

All the installation steps are described in the documentation attached to the theme, so just read it.

Hi,

I already purchased the regular metro theme. I think that a responsive version makes more sense. Are you planning in releasing a responsive theme? Can I hire you to build a custom (just header, footer, and color scheme) responsive metro theme?

Please let me know.

PixelGoose

Hello,

No, we don’t have plans on creating a responsive version of Metro for vB 4.2.2. But we are working on Metro for vB 5 and it will be fully responsive.

Purchased Metro Mobile and installed on vBulletin 4.2.1. AdPeeps running to rotate ads on the site in some places.

Installation easy and smooth, but theme is not working correctly. Blue is the only theme that has been installed so far. On desktop, as soon as you switch to Metro theme, the screen goes white except for a single ad being displayed. The only way out of it is to close down browser and restart session. Same thing happens on Firefox, Explorer, Chrome.

Please provide assistance. Thanks.

Hello,

Do you experience the same issues with the default vB mobile theme?

I got that issue resolved, but the theme is still not working correctly. The grid buttons aren’t displaying, but are showing as a broken link.

PixelGoose

Hello,

You could try to reinstall the theme and test it. It may be a bad editing results.

Hi. Loving the theme, but I’ve run into a slight problem with Image Attachments in posts.

In the postbit_legacy template the line ‘{vb:raw post.imageattachments}’ is not returning any images, despite the fact that the ‘Attached Images’ text appears on the post. Curiously, the Desktop Metro theme that we also have installed works just fine, with identical code.

Would much appreciate any guidance in this issue.

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for the purchase and for your kind words!

Could you please test the default vB mobile theme? Does it have the same issue or not?

Default-user

Thanks for the reply! Interestingly, no the attachments don’t show up in the default Mobile theme either, so this must be a wider issue we’re having. Apologies, I’ll look into it further.

Default-user

Ok, got it. I copied the postbit_attachmentimage template from the main Metro theme to the mobile one and now it works!

PixelGoose

Hello,

I’m glad you managed to fix the issue. But feel free to contact us if you still have any questions!

I installed the Metro theme (blue) on my site. I changed the logo image and made it the same size as the blue header block. It looks right in Firefox but the logo sits on top of the tabs in Explorer. Any ideas? http://www.ezhobbies.com

Flawless! Testing as we speak! Will you have any updates to this theme soon?

Loaded on 4.2.2 and it just shows a blank white page. I view the source code and there is plenty of code, but nothing shows. Any ideas? I’ve tried uploading a few times.

The skin appears to be loading the sidebar? Should it be?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Did you edit the theme in any way after installation?

The skin appears to be loading the sidebar? Should it be?
No, the mobile theme doesn’t have any sidebar. Did you install the theme properly as it’s described in the documentation?

Hey there, looks great! Is it easy to deactivate this theme from working on tablets and only working on mobiles etc?

PixelGoose

Hello,

Unfortunately, vBulletin doesn’t have such settings. It detects your browser by user agent and then gives you the mobile theme if you are visiting it via a tablet browser. But you should ask on http://vbulletin.com/forum/ . I think they might help you.

hello

did this theme have RTL forums support;

PixelGoose

Hello,

Thank you for your interest to our theme!

By default Mobile versions don’t support RTL-languages. But if you install this add-on (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=275494) in addition to the mobile theme, it will work!

PixelGoose

Hello,

Sorry, it won’t support vB 3.8.8 – they just differ a lot.

Awesome theme! Is it possible to control where a browsing user lands? I.e. on the CMS or FORUM specifically?

Thanks for your great work! :)

I’m interested in this theme. Can you share some screenshots of the style like if it is viewed as an admin? I would like to see how functional it is for moderating in a mobile device.

Thanks in advance,
