Discussion on Nexus - Premium Vanilla 2 Theme

39 comments found

So how would I install this? Do I need a account with Vanilla and thats it?

jspautsch

There are instructions included in the file. No you don’t need a Vanilla account (what account are you referring to?), you just need to download the open-source version of Vanilla, upload it to your webhost, and then drop Nexus in the themes directory.

freedommcflyy

Awesome I will pull the trigger and get this. It looks good! Thanks for the speedy reply =)

In the bootstrap.php file I found the code How would I set this for EST Atlanta Ga USA?

// Make sure a default time zone is set date_default_timezone_set(‘UTC’);

jspautsch

I noticed in your email that you were able to resolve this issue with Vanilla forums, could you post your solution here so others can see?

I keep getting this error message when I try to share on twitter? {request application cannot POST.”}

freedommcflyy

I can’t show them the emails you ignore.

jspautsch

For the record, I’ve been helping you out a lot and responding to a lot of your emails. I was delayed in responding to your latest emails to due life commitments and my full-time job, and I NEVER refused support to you.

However, I would like to point out that none of your latest issues were theme issues, they were issues with Vanilla itself or other third-party plugins, which I am not responsible for provide support for. And yet, I have still helped you out even with those issues, because I’m a nice guy.

I honestly I have no idea why you turned on me so fast, I was helping you solve all of your issues, even the ones not remotely related to Nexus, and you didn’t give me any warning simply because I was forced to wait a couple days to respond to SOME of your emails. Class act.

freedommcflyy

Totally a user error. My bad!

Nexus is great. But demo site does not show all functionality of vanilla forum engine, like text editor or embedding images and videos into the body of post. Or it is possible after installing? Thanks.

jspautsch

Not sure what you mean. Yes Vanilla has those features, either standard or via plugins (some of which are included, others you download from their open-source site), and so Nexus supports them as well.

I have a problem with my recent discussions page, it’s cluttered! Please check http://gyazo.com/72604d4b38e5f114d4bc95ccdcde13c6

You already have a test account you signed up earlier when you check my forums. Please fix asap.

And also how can we disable the Latest Post function for Category Titles so it won’t be too confusing? Check this: https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpa1/t31.0-8/10648356_10154550371400117_3485190049711769853_o.jpg

Hey, I really think there’s a problem with the coding that resulted to a clutter in the recent discussions page. Remember when I asked if we can put the sidebar on the right? I think that’s the reason. Can we fix it please? Is it possible if I send you cpanel details for you to check though?

Default-user

I’m willing to tip though.

jspautsch

Can you elaborate or provide a screenshot of the issue?

Just purchased this theme! Looks great, I hope you keep expanding and improving it. Also, don’t forget about Ozone, too! Keep up the great work! :)

Send me an email if you wish to see/know where I am using Nexus. :D

solved, I had to change name in themes/ and configure /conf/config.php...regards

jspautsch

Was this a documentation issue? Let me know and I can fix the docs. What did you have to rename exactly?

Update: The sidebar won’t scroll down on my iPhone 5S with iOS 8.0.2. You can see what I mean by visiting the forums at http://masseffect.VG using an iPhone. :)

Subdreamer

Thanks, man! I’m looking forward to the next theme update!

Keep up the amazing work! :)

jspautsch

The latest update should have fixed the sidebar scrolling issue.

Subdreamer

Thanks for the update, man! I can confirm that it did fix the sidebar scrolling issue. I tested on an iPhone 5S. I look forward to next update!

Great theme!!, you should have creds for that! I do have a problem though: The forum is integrated in a Wordpress installation and it works fine with the Baseline theme, but Nexus won’t load on the integrated page. I have scratched my heads for several hours on this problem and tried various solutions but now I am totally out of ideas to solve this problem. Any input is welcome! Thanks!

jspautsch

Have you enabled Embed mode on your Vanilla installation? Forum Settings > Embed Forum > Enable Embedding

jspautsch

Did you eventually get this working or is it still unsolved?

Bjorn_Granberg

No. Eventually I left Vanilla (haven’t been updated in a long time) and moved over to WoltLabs Burning Board instead. You can visit it here: forum.mobilkranforaren.se The site was released there days ago.

I’m having the same problem. All my other themes embed successfully. Nexus gives me those 3 loading boxes then nothing. Please assist.

ic

Default-user

yes. I enabled it and disabled it then enabled it again just to make sure. Also, when I logged out, i exited the dashboard. Now, because the forum won’t display, I am locked out of my forum and unable to log in to change the theme. I will try uninstalling the WP plugin and see what happens. I also sent you an email. Would you like me to create an admin account to my website for you?

jspautsch

Sorry I missed this, for some reason my theme contact email hasn’t delivered any notifications to me for the past 2 weeks. I’ll look into this.

jspautsch

FYI this has been fixed in the latest update.

I uploaded the Nexus folder to my Vanilla themes folder. Where do I put the assets folder that comes in the zip file?

jspautsch

The assets folder is for the documentation, all you have to worry about is the “nexus” folder.

Default-user

ok. I will ignore it. I thought that maybe it was the cause of the problem I’m having. thanks.

jspautsch

What problem? Something with the theme?

Hi. Love the nexus theme!! 2 comments: - no dashboard link when logged in as admin (or am I missing something?) - the ‘discussants’ plugin doesn’t work quite right; it’s pushing the ‘X new’ notification div to the right, on top of the voting details. I’m working on fixing it and I’ll let you know.

Thanks again!

Default-user

OK, one last question: looks like my users don’t want to use this theme for the desktop site, but only for mobile. I’ve been trying to figure out how to make “snow” the default colour scheme after putting the nexus theme into the themes/mobile directory. Can you tell me how to do this without using the dashboard page to do so (since it doesn’t show up when it’s not enabled as the main site theme)?

Default-user

OK, so now this theme is completely useless and I’ve wasted $16 – the desktop theme doesn’t work well enough (see ‘X new’ comment), and on mobile I can’t type anything into the comment boxes (no keyboard pops up on mobile, on several android devices). So very sad, I really wanted it to work for a mobile them. jspautch are you still out there anywhere? I’d love to help debug.

Default-user

Update: looks like it’s the cleditor that breaks the input boxes. But I don’t know how to disable that editor for only the mobile version (although the stock mobile theme does that; I’ll look into it).

AJcodes Purchased

Great job on this theme.

Question: Is there a way for an admin to set a default avatar image for all users who have not uploaded a profile picture?

Thanks.

jspautsch

If you’re using the Gravatar plugin, there should be a “default.png” image file contained within the plugin directory. You should be able to replace that with whatever you want.

Hi dude!! i bought your theme for vanilla, but i have an issue. When i try to logout with any user, nothing happend, the screen still white like nothing happend and the address bar has the following url: index.php?p=/entry/signout&TransientKey=5X6DND743ELO

whats wrong? Thanks!

danielmarquezdessler

Fixed!! thanks

jspautsch

Glad you resolved the issue!

kiddya Purchased

Hi, I’m having the same issue as the others. As soon as I uploaded Nexus to the themes folder, my forum went missing. I see the 3 boxes and then nothing. I have tried turning off/on Embed mode (it was working with Embed enabled before). Thank you!

jspautsch

Working this out via email. If anyone else has experienced and fixed this issue, let me know.

jspautsch

FYI this should be fixed in the latest update.

Hi,

Would please provide a link with more colours to preview. I’m don’t like green

Cheers

jspautsch

Certainly! You can preview the entire theme in any of the available colors on the live preview site: http://secondwindprojects.com/nexus/

Scroll down and find the “Preview a style” section in the sidebar. Just click on a color you want to see. Nexus has 7 color schemes: Nexus green (default), Blue, Purple, Red, Yellow, Slate, and Snow.

When using the option to use the forums for Wordpress commenting the form doesn’t show. Theme is great but the integrating seems to be a bit wonky.

Any help would be awesome!

jspautsch

Can you contact me at jspautsch@gmail.com? We’ll continue to troubleshoot via email. It looks like I’m going to have to rework a lot of the embedded/integration functionality.

jspautsch

Alright, here’s how to fix the “Nexus doesn’t appear while embedded” issue:

Go to where you uploaded nexus and find the custom.css file in nexus/design/custom.css. Go to line 5 and REMOVE the following lines:

body, html {
    height: 100%;
}

Nexus should now appear properly while embedded. I haven’t found any side effects from removing this, but if you see anything let me know.

jspautsch

The latest update to Nexus should fix all the issues you were having. Let me know if the problem returns or you find something else.

Hey when is the new update coming? :) I really love this theme.

jspautsch

Real soon! I just need to work out some issues with the new search design.
