is the forum has the option to change ALL his menus, layout and text, and display view to RIGHT TO LEFT ?
do you mean support for the RTL languages? – You’ll need to do some tweaks. I don’t support it by default due to the extremely low requests for it. You’ll need to google up a bit. For example : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19730598/right-to-left-support-for-twitter-bootstrap-3
Let me know if you have any other questions and I can help you make a decision.
Still here to help if you need. I would love to seeing part of the SiteSplat’s community.
I really like this style and I think I will purchase it but I have some questions.
Right now I am using a free style with phpBB 3.1.6 and some extenstions,can I still use my extentions with the BBoots style?
Google Analytics extenstion
Notify admin on registration extension
Precise simular topics extension
Recent topics extension
Share on extension
For me it’s quite important to use the above extensions on my forum.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks for reaching out. All the important, stable and well coded extension have been ported to work with my themes.
You can see some of the premium extensions I develop here : ** http://www.sitesplat.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1332
Having said this, from your list they are all almost available except for:
- Google Analytics extenstion, (which you don’t need an extension for )
-PhpBB Directory extension,
-Recent topics extension (which you dont need under BBBOOTS becuase you can use the top5 extension specifically styled.)
Thanks for yor reply.
This means that I can’t use phpdirectory anymore?
Is there an alternative to create a page with categories and links to other websites?
Its just an overkill the phpBB Directory. All you need is the Pages extension, which is available. Then you can build a nice layout with BBOOTS and Bootstrap. This way will be much more flexible and good looking
I know BBOOTS is the style but what do you mean with Bootstrap?
Bootstrap is the framework my themes are built on top of. Its original and untouched and this means you can sue any bootstrap compatible layouts. For example tons of snippet to use here: http://bootsnipp.com/ perfect for the pages extension and in your case your custom phpBB directory
Dave whats happening to forum , doesent work ?
Just some server upgrade. Sorry about it. Hang in there. Should be up and running in a few hours.
I am looking to update a 3.0.11 phpbb forum to the latest version 3.1.7. I would also need an extension to create medals/badges that can be rewarded to users. And I stumbled across your forum after some googling. It said that you are offering this feature, but i can’t se the cost for it unless I first buy the theme? I would like to know more about this mod/extension before I take the plunge and buy anything.
Glad you made it here. Can you send me an email? Click on my username then use the email form bottom right inside.
I’ll meet with the decision makers in two weeks. I’ll get back to you on email after that.
Great thanks for letting me know!
I wanted to buy your theme but this prevents me..worst SEO implementation.. it should only be done on homepage not every page/topics on the forum:
<meta name=”author” content=”SiteSplat www.sitesplat.com”>
<meta name=”designer” content=”SiteSplat www.sitesplat.com”>
<meta name=”viewport” content=”width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0”><!- Set the viewport width to device width for mobile ->
<meta name=”Description” content=””><!- Set Your forum description here inside the ”” tag ->
<meta name=”Keywords” content=””><!- Set Your forum keywords here inside the ”” tag and make sure they are separated by a comma ->
<meta name=”application-name” content=”FLATBOOTS”><!- WIN8 Tiles setup forum name ->
<meta name=”msapplication-TileColor” content=”#ffffff”><!- WIN8 Tiles color ->
Glad you pointed it out, so perhaps now you can also explain the same thing to the phpBB developers and ask them to improve the current SEO structure on phpBB.
Its a topic has been discussed for years now.
PS. I can you fine tune the SEO part if you have specific needs
I think it will generate duplicate contents on google search results.. having the same description/keywords on every pages. And last question do you offer a free plugin for social sharing? I wanted to buy the BBoots theme and the Mini CMS today.
Yes there is a possibility, but seeing as those are the standard meta tags google will ignore them anyway and have no SEO importance anymore. The important things are the topic links nowdays.
In any case I can show you how to tweak it further but the “problem” is the phpBB implementation of the overall_header which is as you guessed on every single page:) It will change in the future…
Anyway, tons of free extensions : http://www.sitesplat.com/
I would love to see you joining the community forum and be part of the excited Admins there much to try and discover and a special place where to find Specially crafted premium products
For anything else or would like to know more about the custom work, fee free to email me.
Thanks Dave! See you later in the forums
You’ll love the place
PM me or open a public topic there.
Confused.. flatboots or bboots.. waaaaaaa
FLATBOOTS is for people who like minimalist design and where the content is king rather than the user information. Needless to say the clean and Flat design just makes everything smooth and pleasant to browse.
BBOOTS is for busy Admins where they need to display many info at all the time.
Like links, social medias, gaming clan where they need the user profile in view with all different custom profile etc…
Hi Dave, just wanted to let you know that I purchased your Flatboots Theme looking forward.
Awesome! Send me a PM once you are registered on the support forum.
Hello. Really like it. Can i use it on phpbb 3.1.8?
Yup of course.
Don’t forget to join the official community forum for updates, tutorials and many other cool things
So i think I’m going to pick Bboots but just wondering:
1) will all the phpbb functionality, features etc still be there?
2) without the extra cms module, can nothing be changed without getting in to the code?
3) do you know how to make it so guest can only read a few topic/posts before being prompted to register?
I think that’s it for now. Thanks
down to the questions:
1) yes of course, why wouldn’t they be there? There is actually more under then hood that either add functionally or improves the default behavior.
2) that’s not mandatory. You can still follow the documentation to get things done.
3) yup sure, post on the official community forum: http://www.sitesplat.com
this way I can follow up with you better
Hey, I’ve not yet bought this but if I do buy it, is it easy to add own custom rank titles in HTML and CSS that will display on all forum posts and user cp
Sorry for the delay of my reply. Just got back from a couple of days holiday.
You can add your own custom ranks title and images via the Admin Panel and they will show up in posts, member profile etc.
Register to the official community forum for further help, tutorials, extensions and more: http://www.sitesplat.com
Thanks for making such a cute forum for us to buy and use. Please its been three days I have been trying to upload and use the style. I have uploaded and installed on my forum. However, I really don’t know how to do the final installation using the Automod. I am a newbie in all these just need your assistance. Thanks a lot.
Happy to help new people getting familiar with the forum system.
First things first, Register on the official support community: http://www.sitesplat.com
Then send me a PM from there and i’ll get back to you soon
Can’t find a way of sending you a PM. Pls I have been checking for a way to do so.
Got your PM. we’ll go from there.
Hey I am interested in buying the theme but I just have one question before I do. Is there any way to turn on users avatars and ranks in viewtopic when viewing the forum in mobile?
Also is this theme based on prosilver or subsilver
Hi Okl and thank-you for reaching out.
sure it can be done. I can write the code for you and for free after the purchase.
Regarding the base style, that’s exactly what you will NOT ever see with my themes.
They are build from the ground up rather than just some poorly written CSS and other code based on the obsolete prosilver (never mind subsilver) which what everybody does here and then its marketed as premium theme unfortunately.
Mine is a professional development with a community built around it:
where you’ll find tons of free resources, tutorials, MODs/Extensions and all entirely re-written to support the modern Web Technologies. Many cool services like a COLORIZE to change your color scheme in one click style and a super cool changelog system where you can see and merge the changes to each theme updates even in the case you HEAVILY modify the theme
I do a lot of custom code for freelance and develop many premium products sold separately which truly brings a new experience to forums and your users.
If you expect the theme to be working and behave like prosilver then I would NOT suggest this product. Check out the Demo to make sure you truly like it before purchasing it
Okay, posted in the support forum in sitesplat
Replied. Sorry for the delay
Hi, i have some questions.
1. How to remove “This is the forum index page”
2. How to edit the footer Recent Topics. I see some topics from BBOOTS, how to change with my topics from the forum?
3. How to remove copyright?
4. How can i remove the Umbrella on the header (under the logo)
I’ll be able to follow up with you better from there.
1 - Does the template add more functions in Admin Panel?
2 - Are those extensions free when theme purchased? bbembed, bbemoji, bbootsminicms, bbprefix
3 - Is it possible to change the user profile from left to right? In posts..
2) Those are exclusive for the clients and are not free ad its part of my freelance work.
3) Yup you can with the Mini CMS addon I linked above
Let me know if you need anything else.
Alright, that really much money, I though if I buy the theme I had access to all those extensions for free, not going to spent like 50$ to just a theme and few improvements.
There are TONS of free extensions available on the support forum email@example.com together with tutorials, resources and more…
The custom premium extensions is premium work added as a “perk” for the clients, they are not needed to enjoy the theme which is $17 (about 14 Euros in your case).
It’s much like you buy a new car but then you decide to get the special rims for it.
They are extra optional and not part of the car purchase.
its the owner decision to make the car looking even more beautiful and shiny
Hello Dave, the problem is only with Theme I will not be able to change some parts. Example in Footer, I cannot change Twitter, Recent Topics, About etc. Thats why you created the Mini CMS to add support to it, the only way to change it is change directly in the files. I had a look on it already.
I think I have confused you. Let me rectify this,
What you need to do with the theme can be done with NO Mini CMS and the included documentation explains how to do it step by step. (the change of the profile is included in the tutorial over at sitesplat.com )
having said this, the Mini CMS is only needed if the Admin wants to to the changes directly via the ACP rather than editing files manually. its a beautiful addon that saves you time – Again its not a must have if you feel comfortable in editing files.
Having said this, contact me via PM on the forum after the purchase so I show you exactly what to do to achieve what you need
Does this work with 3.1.9? Are most extensions compatable?
thanks for reaching out!
Yup, this is a professional development so all the phpBB versions are supported (Soon 3.2.x as well)
The extensions, the most important and the best coded are chosen and ported to my styles. They are available for download over at the official support forum: http://sitesplat.com together with tons of tutorials, resources and also premium addons to take your forum to next level
If you need anything else or have questions let me know.
let me know if I can help you with anything else.
I would love to seeing you join the community over sitesplat.com with many Admins like you.
Hi What is the different between FLATBOOTS and BBOOTS and can i chance theme color, for example white to dark. Thanks
I believe we are in touch by emails already.
In any case, there are two different products.
If you check the demos out you will be able to see which one you like best.
Which one do you prefer?
I think about buying your theme but I have some questions first:
1. Is it easy to create a custom page which is reachable through the main menu and displays for example some buying recommendations with links and so on?
2. Can I customize the complete footer area (Recent Topics, Twitter…)?
3. Can I add a sidebar with the facebook plugin or other stuff on the main page? And if yes, do you have some example-websites which I can check?
4. Does the “share on” extension work with the theme and/or is there a possibility to share forum-entrys?
Thanks for reaching out!
Down to your questions:
2) sure you can. It comes already with some smart areas. For example yo ucan ge the recent topics to work with this free extensions ported to support BBOOTS theme: http://sitesplat.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=1351 then the twitter feed is working, you just need to follow the documentation and learn where to put your twitter ID to have the widget displaying your twets. then you have favorite links, this again pretty straigh forward, wehere you place your custom links, and then you have the about us.
Thre is also this addon: https://codecanyon.net/item/bboots-mini-cms-/8536989 which will allow you to take control of many theme’s blocks and areas ddirectly via the Admin Panel.
3) for the sidebar , sure you could manually. However I suggest my premium addons I developed for my clients. One of these premium addons is called “BBsidebar” a totally kick-ass sidebar tons of options and blocks. see here for more info on some of my recent custom work with many premium addons: http://sitesplat.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1332 and here: http://sitesplat.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=2789
4) yes there is a version here: http://sitesplat.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=1284 however I cannot reccomend it. it’s pretty limited and it does not do anything special. What you need is “BBopenGraph” again a premium addon that not only allows you to add the sahre functionality but adds some super SEO stuff to your forum. Porper SEO tags, GOogle+, Twitter cards, Facebook options and more.
If you need anything else please let me know.
thank you so much for your quick answer! I am going to buy the theme and I think I will add some of your premium addons as well! I hope you will support me if I have some more questions while working with it then!
Terrific! I’ll see you over @sitesplat.com then
Dave, I have one more question. I bought the theme and some extensions. So before installing it, I wonder if I should install the version 3.1 or 3.2. I cant find phpbb3.2 for downloading, I can only find version 3.10. So is 3.2 an upcoming version and should I start with 3.1.10? Or is the theme version 3.2 working with the latest phpbb3.1.10? Sorry if it is a dumb question, but this is all new stuff for me.
Thanks a lot, Andy
3.2 is not suitable for a live forum yet. Install phpBB 3.1.10.
Then, upload the theme, install the latest version of the BBcore (the lastest version is always on sitesplat.com) and then you can install the premium extensions
I’ll be happy to set it up for you, seeing as you are new with this system…
Send me an email and we’ll go from there
great, thank you so much. I will come back to your offer after I made my first experiences and let you know in which areas I need your help! Thanks so far for your great support and have a nice weekend!
Awesome! Thanks Andy.
Email me or post in the forum if you need anything
Dave, good day!
I have few questions before buying.
1. Ru language – is Bboots multilanguage?
2. Does it supports such mod as Quick Reply by Tatiana? ery useful for me and my forum.
3. Can I see list of supported mods? Some of mods are needed on my board.
4. What the cost of additional mods? Such as bblikes/dislikes, bbemoji and others.
Just want to plan money and time)
Can you send me the above via email? Thanks!
