Pixelgoose, i have bought the metro for desktop for vbulletin. If i buy this one, will it be easy to install and not bugg at all with the desktop version?

Hello,

Sure, you can install it in addition to the desktop version and they will work OK side by side! Installation is almost the same and I think you won’t have any difficulties with it (if you have any, just contact us, we’ll help you).

Hello,

vbulletin displays mobile theme based on devices/browser list, which is a bad idea, the very best is to use user viewport. Does metro mobile use viewport or it uses vbulletin default method?

Thanks!

Hello,

Metro Mobile uses the default method – device/browser list.

I just bought this theme and it has the same problems with VBSEO as the default mobile theme.

When I click in a forum or a thread, I get redirected to the wrong url: Instead of: http://www.website.com/forum/something/ I get redirected to http://www.website.com/forum//forum/something/

I am using vBulletin 4.2.2 Patch Level 4 with vBSEO 3.6.0 PL2.

Could you please help me solve this issue? Thank you.

Hello,

The problem in vBulletin core files not in the themes. You should better ask at vBSEO support forum, they have to help you to solve the issue.

Do you have any themes for vBulletin 3.8 ?

Hello,

No, we don’t have ones.

Will this theme word on a vBulletin 4.2 installation WITHOUT being the “Suite”?

Sal C.

Thank you. I’m going to give it a shot tomorrow…

One more question. Is there any detection method so that when a user browses with a mobile device the mobile theme is used instead of the standard one? Or do I need an external modification for that?

Sal C.

You don’t need any additional modification – vBulletin itself detects user browser and shows him either the mobile or desktop theme version.

I’m experiencing the same issue, the forums will prefixes loop to the same page, the threads dont load

Hello,

Do you have the same issue with the default vBulletin mobile theme? Could you please check it?

Working great with VBulletin 4.2.3 so far. Thanks!

Hi,

I bought the Metro theme just to use as my mobile theme. I would like to keep my desktop theme the same. But when I go to the style editor in VB, the only mobile theme showing up is the default mobile theme under mobile themes.

How do I make metro my mobile theme? thanks.

Hello,

Please check your email!

I have installed the Default theme with No Parent and when I click on the grid> articles>

there should be a displayed button of Sections & Categories- these 2 buttons do not exist. They display in the source code, but do not display in the theme itself.

Secondly- the words “Articles Posts” should have a back button in front of it as it displays in your test theme here on themeforests- but this back button does NOT exists either and is not found in the source code of the main theme.

In fact there is no way to go back at all except to reload the grid and start over. There are no breadcrumbs, no navigation choices, nothing.

I emailed you as you requested (within 5 minutes of your request) and provided you with a login to view the broken design directly and still have not received a response. Here are screenshots of the issues, side by side with the DEMO Version showing what the theme is supposed to do vs what the theme is actually doing:

Also- I’ve looked at the source code of your demo vs the source code returned from the uploaded Default Metro and they are different. Are you sure the latest updated code is available for download after purchasing??

http://www.screencast.com/users/Budget101/folders/Metro-Mobile/media/1e2fbdd5-f9ee-4b9e-ade3-433c511ae078

I’d really like to get this all straightened out… Please respond.

again, here is another screenshot showing that in the DEMO version there is a line of code that creates a Back Button & a navigation structure- but this line of code does not appear in the downloaded purchased version. http://www.screencast.com/users/Budget101/folders/Metro-Mobile/media/1a1dff2b-6824-4329-b1ca-986f1e449b09

Hello,

Please check your email!

Forum images (like avatars) aren’t working. This was an issue with my other mobile theme, hence why I bought this. So maybe the issue is with something else: [EDIT: Link removed]

Go to any thread and see how avatars are messed up (they show as empty boxes). How can I resolve this? Thanks.

Edit: I also don’t see where the mobile avatar path is set. Not sure how or why it is different than desktop.

Bump. Thanks.

Issue solved: chmod the thumbs directory so it can be writeable, and then run the rebuild custom avatar thumbnail rebuild script .

So will this work with any desktop theme? i have a custom desktop theme and wanted a mobile theme to work side by side when someone comes to the forum from a mobile device! and wanted to make sure it works.

Okay, and will work with vb 4.2.2 patch level 4?

And what is different between your mobile theme and the default vbulletin one?

Thanks.

Yes, it fully supports vB 4.2.2.

And what is different between your mobile theme and the default vbulletin one?
The main html-templates are hardly changed. The main changes are inside css-templates. And all graphics are changed to match the ‘metro’ style.

I see! Thanks!.

On the registration page we have a custom profile field. We noticed on this mobile theme the description is hidden. The description is needed to answer this question. How do we show the description for this field on the registration page for mobile?

Thanks.

Thanks. I assume this is it? https://www.speedsolving.com/forum/forum.php?styleid=24 I don’t recall ever deleting it, but the one above and Metro are the only 2 mobile styles I have.

If the one above is it, on the registration page the description is hidden on that too. Is that normal?

Yes, that’s the style I meant. And if it’s hidden too, it’s something with the mobile theme structure that causes the issue. Could you please contact us via our profile page and explain in details which certain field is hidden. We’ll try to fix the issue.

Email sent. Many thanks!

Hi, I realized that Ipad doesn’t recognize the theme. Could you help me?

Hello,

Yes, the theme is only shown automatically for phone browsers. iPad resolution is quite enough for a desktop theme.

I have noticed the when you goto the What’s New tap in the mobile theme it is not showing anything or maybe the last 2 post. I have it set for the last 24 hours in the main forum. Is there anything that can be done about this?

Thank you for your time.

Thank you for your time.
