Hi, I liked and bought this theme. Now I want to use this like HTML template (HTML, CSS, JS). How can I get that? How you can help me? I only need html pages, without any PHP codes.

Hi J,

This a phpBB theme. In order to use it as HTML/CSS you’ll need to remove all the php variables in the template files.. But that it’s not really easy to do. You would be better off starting from scratch following the classes/id available. If you build your basic HTML5 structure you could import the Bootstrap files, and then the basics.css stylesheet. Then you would follow the HTML5 structure like the forum.

I want to buy the theme, but one friend of mine that used it, told me it’s hard to get the recent post layout to work, I don’t know if that’s the case but if you have me know how to do it, ill buy the theme that same moment. It’s the only deal-breaker for me

I am sold! Buying it at the moment! See you on the other side ;)

Awesome! I’ll see you on the forum !

Yep. Am already on the forum, used the chat away thingy CAUSE ITS AWESOME and now am installing the theme! Ain’t that great? You probably gonna see me on the forum cause I like to ask everything without thinking but that’s ok :D

Hi, yes you can and they will be responsive with my embed BBcode. Once you purchase the theme you can find the instruction and the addon on the community forum : http://www.sitesplat.com/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=14 Cheers! Dave

So on the screenshots there is a mini-chat box. Is that a mod or is that part of the theme?

I cannot login to the sitesplat forum. I am sure I am entering correct details I received in the welcome email, says account cannot be found. When trying to reset password I am getting same message? Please help.

Got it. :-)

I want to buy this but Envato won’t accept my PayPal payments so I guess I won’t be buying this one.

Hi there, sorry for my late reply. Are you still having issues with the payments? Envato does accept PayPal payments. Let me know if I can help you further. Cheers! Dave

Cheers! Dave

can this be installed on existing phpbb3? the reason being is that i would prefer to use softaculous installer (to ease my upgrade).

If it’s possible, what is the different between installing on an existing board vs. fresh installation. any lack of functionality?

Hi Gigon,

For sure you can but I wouldn’t suggest softaculus even if it was the last resource on earth! It creates so many problems. I can install it for you if you like. You can do existing forum or a new forum. Its up to you.

Let me know Cheers! Dave

PS. the documentation guides you step by step for either one options.

One of the best customer support I’ve encountered. :)


I just wanted to step in again and say that I purchased this theme a few weeks ago and am still blown away by it. Easily the best purchase I’ve ever made here, and Dave’s customer service is phenomenal. You can check out my forums at SportsGamerRevolution.com for proof. Thanks again Dave you’re awesome!

Thanks Again!

Having issues installing the template. I have successfully installed the Automod but when I go to upload the bbcore it doesnt appear in the styles tab.

Hi there ;-) Please send me via email your FTP info and forum Admin info. I will take a look at it for you.

Cheers! Dave

Cheers! Dave

Thanks. see you soon at forum :D

Before buying, i just wanna ask something. 1) Can I remove the box- like thing around the forum? 2) I would like to change the header to a custom HTML and CSS file(this worked on the official prosilver theme). Could you help me do it?


Not a problem. once you purchased the theme you can post over at the community support and I’ll help you with your custom header etc. ;-)

Cheers! Dave

Bought it! Looks damn good!

Works perfect. Thank you.

Best support & Super fast loading.

Do you happen to have an approximate date when BBOOTS will be ready for phpBB4?

Hi Ini, you mean phpBB 3.1? Probably couple months after the official release. It’s pointless to have the style ready right away when the actual phpBB software will still have bugs to be ironed out. Also keep in mind that all the current MOD’s for phpBB 3.0.12 will not work with phpBB 3.1. People will not be to keen to move to a software that cannot be extended easily. There will be literally few extension developed by the official team for the time being. With that being said, all my premium addons available on sitesplat.com will be working on phpBB3.1 ;-) Dave

Hi ThemeSplat,

I love your Forum template. I am planning to use it for a community. Quick question tho… is it possible to add small icons below each users stats like the ones on Themeforest Authors? Example: After 10 posts, the user gets a small special icon, 100 posts another icon, 1000 posts another icon…etc. Something like what Authors get on Themeforest; an icon for $1,000 + sales, user has refered 1-2 members…etc.



for sure you can! I can build the custom addon for you. Cheers! Dave
