Hi, i want to purchase and have custom installed for me with Advertising banners able to be added and swapped out. Not google ads though, custom banners that i create and sell and sell advertising space. Can this be done and what would time frame be approx?

Hi Tony,

Please send me an email to: info@sitesplat.com and we’ll continue from there :-)

CHeers! Dave

I have tried a version that I found by interent but there are phrases like: MAIN_MAIN_STUFF, MAIN_TRENDS, MAIN_SEARCH_IT_UP, SOCIAL_P, GET_IN_TOUCH, YOU_ARE_HERE, etc, etc. In the paid version appears well? I’m interested in buying it


I’ll be honest here, I don’t even know what to answer to this. You mean a pirated copy… Definitely not cool. Never mind asking question about it? I just can’t wrap my head around these type of things/behavior.

The proper thing to do would be to buy the original copy and then get in touch with the Author. Wouldn’t you agree?


I have simply used it to check the design if it meets my expectations and check everything before buying it. I will never use a non-original copy for a project. My apologies if I have offended you or violated your rights. It was not my intention.

That’s why there is a live Demo… ;)

In any case, I’ll be happy to help you if you need help after the purchase. you can contact me via email or even better use the dedicated support forum

Let me know

Cheers! Dave

pre-buy question why is your Premium Add-ons section on your support forum locked ? i would like to see how much you sell thos before buying the forum theme

Hey RK,

Thanks for reaching out!

That is custom freelance work and is exclusive for the clients. Its not needed nor part of the theme and that is why is not advertised in the first place.

Some are not even available at all as it’s just a showcase and what I do for some other clients…

Therefore the prices etc are not available for the general public.

You can reach out via email if you have further questions or you are interested in custom work. :)

Cheers! Dave

hi love your style going to buy it. please is there a way to put recent topic or trending topic on top of the page pls.

Hi :)

Yup join the dedicated support forum to find out all the tutorials, free and premium extensions, custom work and much more!

You will need the purchase code from the theme once purchased in order to register to the dedicated forum:


Cheers! Dave

Hi there,

I would like to buy this theme for phpbb3.2 and I would like to know if it can use 100% of the screen instead of what the demo show. I would like it to act like my actual 3.0 theme : http://forum.megasquirt.fr

Thanks, Manu

Thanks Dave ! I’ll move my forum from phpbb 3.0 to 3.2 and I’ll then buy your theme. regards, Manu


Don’t forget to follow carefully this guides on how to upgrade:


Do not follow what’s on phpBB.com as its NOT accurate and I have many clients who messed up their forum because of the poor guide they posted there.

So follow what’s on sitesplat.com.

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.

Hey Map,

late to the party? not at all! :) Thank-you for supporting the project.

Don’t forget to join http://sitesplat.com to get all the good stuff exclusive for the buyers ;) I look forward to seeing you there.

Cheers! Dave

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


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 :)

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!

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 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

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?

Bump for response

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

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
