Is it possible to add Google Adsense in theme? Is it easy to add it? Is this wordpress website?

Hi Roy! yes of course… This is a forum, phpBB software. Are you trying to get a forum community going?

yes. but need to show google adsense so I can cover up maintaince cost of website.

Yup that’s not a problem at all. You can do it manually with the theme but of course I reccoemnd instead using the plugin, (extension) mini CMS which will allow you focus on what matters quickly and directly via ACP (Admin Control Panel) http://codecanyon.net/item/bboots-mini-cms-/8536989?ref=ThemeSplat

If you need anything I’m here to help.

not affordable for a phpbb theme. I will buy it if it goes on sale.

Hello There. I am web developer and I am interesting in builiding a forum. So I want to ask you something. If i buy this theme, is any administrator panel in php available?

Hi sorry for the delay of my reply! yes you will have the ACP to make changes to the forum options etc.

See the phpBB installation page. https://www.phpbb.com/downloads/

I’ll be happy to help you install phpBB and the theme if are not sure where to start. Send me an email after the purchase.



Bonjour j’ai une question préachat ce thème est il compatible avec les extensions cBB Chat et Quick Title Edition ? qui me sont indispensables pour mon forum

Je vois que apparemment d’après les commentaires des acheteurs la plupart des extensions disponible sur phpbb.com ne sont pas compatibles sur vos thèmes donc j’attends une confirmation sur la compatibilité des deux extensions que j’ai besoin pour mon forum.

Hi scree! sorry I just saw your comment! I believe canidev supports my theme for his extensions.

He has a section or I think they are included in the main downloads for his packages.

you need to check with him to make sure.


Support rtl ????

Hi T,

I personally dont support RTL but many admins like you in the sitesplat.com community added RTL.

There are also languages available. but you would be on your own in trying tweaks etc.


Is it still avaiable for 3.0 ? And BBOOTS – Mini CMS system for phpBB?

Hi TW,m sorry I just saw this comment! Yes I still offer the themes and some plugins for the phpBB 3.0 line. (in fact I leave the clients the full phpBB lines. 3.0 , 3.1, 3.2 and 3.0. all available in the main download. ) However, please understand, its not supported nor recommended to use.


**Five stars from us*

This developer is reliable, I found they`ve made this fantastic and easy to use template. Support is Awesome and Fast…Template Coding also Easy to understand…. All files are well organized and easy to follow Dave, Best of Luck to you and your team @SitePlat. Certainly, its a Great Template and Great Designers behind siteplat, I would recommend it.

Thank-you so much! Enjoy. :-)

Looks like a great theme. Unfortunately i cannot leave it a great review because i am having issues installing it and have reached out to support for weeks now with no response. Guess ill move on….

I’m sorry!!! I missed your emails! I just installed the theme for you. I sent you an email. We’ll continue from there.

Does this theme expand to cover the entire screen or does it always have the grey boxes on both sides of the forum? also, is it the same for your other theme, Flatboots

Hi Gp,

yup it is possible. Only needs to add a class which is already built-in as my themes are the only ones using native bootstrap framework.

once you purchase it and signup on the dedicated buyers support forum, you can find the tutorial for your request here:


Looking forward to seeing you joining the happy admins using my items!


I like your theme but I must admit I am even more interested in your extensions such as BBchat and most importantly bbgdpr which is required by law. Question I have is if I purchase this theme and get access to your website sitesplat what are the prices of the extensions? and do they work with other themes outside your themes? the ones I just mention anyway. I can’t access to even get a good look at the extensions or see if anyone is having any problems with them.

I used the box at the bottom right. Let me know if you didn’t get the email.

Hi I did not receive an email from you after?


Sorry for the late reply. Just got back. we’ll continue via email.


just purchased, but how to edit recent topics?

Hi there!

check the dedicated support forum, sitesplat.com All you need is there :-)

let me know how it goes. Either post there or send me an email please. The comments here is just not a good way to provide support. that’s why I prefer the client to send me emails or just use the dedicated forum :-)

Cheers! Dave

I already registered but there are so many rooms, so many topics in your forum and I can’t create new topic related my problem. Please send me directly link the answer like I want or tell me here in my busy time..

Hi J,

Run a forum search? :-)

here’;s what you are looking for: http://sitesplat.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=1351


Can we add post “vote ups/downs” like on reddit?

Hi WF,

there is a LikeBB premium extension or BBreaction I made for “post voting” Its part of the paid premium extensions set I develop for my clients that use my products.

You can see some of the professional premium development here: http://www.sitesplat.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1332 and: http://www.sitesplat.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=2789

The one posted in those links are not all and not all the latest ones. There are so many products! :) Currently more than 50 premium extensions.

This is a professional development has been going since 2012 :-) Tons of stuff has been built and maintained since then.

Cheers! Dave

is there an easy way to add advertising from google on this theme?

Bump for response

Do you have a corresponding wordpress theme? i was reading the comments and you sad 1 year ago that there was something in the pipeline coming out soon here: https://themeforest.net/comments/16113841 any news on this?

Hi Ray, Tons of premium products have been under development for over a year now. 80% of these products will be released very soon. There is a lot of stuff coming up :-)

Are you specifically waiting for WP products? What’s holding you back from joining?

Cheers! Dave

yes im looking to move away from an other WP/Woocommerce theme from themeforest as its full of bugs and the author is not really fixing it.

i would like my forum and my WP to have to same look.

i just had a bad experience with 2 themeforest theme.

im now wondering if i should get your theme and get the forum BBOOTS – Mini CMS tho i wander why its not coming with the theme why is it separate?

it adds up to be more expensive than your other forum theme FLATBOOTS plus my exchange rate for it.

Do both forum themes have the same options?

Is one better then the other if so in what way? Are you planning in supporting bboots for the coming years?

Hi im interested in this theme just wandering if it comes with avatars as we see on your support forum and in the demo. if not is there a way to get em ?

Hi RayK,

Sure you can have those. There is actually a premium extension which is free for my clients… Allows to set custom avatars, or random gravatars (which is what you are seeing in the DEMO)

Let me know if you have other questions or need anything ;) I would love to seeing you join the sitesplat.com community and enjoy my custom products!

Cheers! Dave

does it support RTL languages ?

Hi Mesh,

So sorry but I don’t support RTL in my themes.

However there are translations by some other users who use RTL and also created their RTL fixes. This is on the clietn support forum over at: www.sitesplat.com

Cheers! Dave

Hi im just wondering if your planning to add new fetchers to your themes i mean bboots latest chang log seen on themeforest links to a page that dates back to may 6, 2015… if we go on your site we can not see the newest changelog http://www.sitesplat.com/phpBB3/changelog.php?product=bboots32 says we need to log in…

im just wondering if new changes are done often.

Also, whats blocking me from buying is that i have many add-ons that i have on my phpbb and would like to see how much it would cost to replace them with your pro add-ons…

we cant even see what is available in the marketplace to start with without buying your theme, we can not see the prices of your marketplace on your site http://www.sitesplat.com/phpBB3/marketplace.php before buying your them… that’s a big blocker for me as i have new clue how much you charge for each pro addon you have on your marketplace.

so without access to your pro addon list and prices there is no way for me to know how much it would cost me to replace my current add-ons and to go with your theme.

Hi Ray, thanks for reaching out.

TL;DR: No need to replace anything with the premium extensions. You have free extensions. Premium development and custom work is optional to make your community special and unique. it’s not a requirement, is an option. This being custom development is not open for users that are not clients.

Same for change-log or any other special information or services. ( The reasons are many and will not get into the details of why I chose to keep it for the clients only.)

LONG STORY: This is a professional development and given the fact I’ve been working on special development like this one for several years, there are in facts tons of premium addons I produced as freelance in all these years. I then decided to make this ecosystem available to all my clients as the requests kept growing and growing.

You might be aware that there is no development like this on phpBB unfortunately and therefore the need for professional and modern products has been high since I went public with my development.

I offer many free premium addons for the clients, tailored specifically for my themes. There are also paid premium addons which I offer as a freelance work (beside all the custom work I currently do on a daily basis with phpBB and WordPress and other more modern platforms and technologies. ) – This is standard on Envato market and only the professional authors will offer freelance work, (custom work) on their products and also third parties products.

Beside the free premium and the paid premium there are also the FREE extensions that come from phpBB.com or other talented developers I work with and I make them available on http://sitesplat.com. These are also checked again for security and quality to make sure they match my themes perfectly and look great. :) many have extra functions as well and they are still included for free.

Like I said its a whole ecosystem made of great professional products developed throughout the years, (free and paid products) and above all a great dedicated community with tons of Admins like you who help each other out. Tons of tutorials as well and many things and info to stay in the known :)

Great theme, easily customizable. Can fit any kind of project. Very active support. Do not hesitate to preview and buy. Bravo!


Hi – I’m a bit late to the party. I have recently started a forum, and found your theme. I just had to buy it! Amazing work! I love the mobile skin too. Thank you for all the hard work.
