Is this theme compatibile with PhpBB 3.2.0RC ? Thanks.

Hello,

Not yet. But we plan to release such version too.

Can I display only latest topics (from all categories) on the front page instead of the categories and forums?

Hi There, Please could you kindly assist – I know my support has expired but I really have a small request. I need to make my logo larger and I need to remove the green background from behind the logo. Are you able to assist? Please.

Hi there,

My phpbb forum is currently on version 3.0.12 and I want to upgrade to 3.1.9 (the latest version). I am a first time forum owner and fairly new to this but know how to follow instructions. I read that if I upgrade to 3.1.9 there is a good chance I will lose my theme. How can I upgrade phpbb to 3.1.9 and make sure that my theme stays in tact. I fear that in the process I’ll do something wrong and lose all of the actual content on my forums. Do you have any instructions for this task?

Thank you in advance!

Hello,

The point is that themes for 3.0 and 3.1 differ much. You can’t just take 3.0 version and install it on 3.1. Unfortunately you’ll need to perform a clean install of 3.1 theme and then manually move all style changes (if you had any) to it As for the actual content of you forum (threads, posts etc) you can’t lose anything just setting a new theme. By the way here’s the official tutorial on phpBB 3 upgrade – https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3.1/ug/upgradeguide/upgrade3/

PixelGoose: on your demo for this theme you’ve got the same issue I’ve been having since I installed this theme back in 2013. Well, actually: in 2013, this issue was not present, if I recall.

The issue is HTML checkboxes. Here is a screenshot from your own demo page: https://proxy.img-cdn.ru/https://k0nsl.img-cdn.ru/chrome_2016-08-07_01-40-33.png Do you see what I mean? I’ve highlighted the relevant part. This is not just limited to the login, but everywhere there’s a checkbox. Any idea how to solve that? I have been going nuts trying to figure it out, but I haven’t been able to fix it. At least it’s good to know I’m not the only one with this issue.

Best wishes,

Hello,

If you mean a WebKit-based browser it could be “-webkit-appearance” css-property that was set to “none” back in 2013 for some css-conflict. I’ll double check it tomorrow and let you know.

Let me know if you can come up with a solution, @PixelGoose. If not, I’ll have a more in-depth look myself.

Hello,

Here’s the solution. Add the following css-code to you stylesheet -

input[type="checkbox"] {
    -webkit-appearance: checkbox;
}

It should help you.

Hi,

Thanks for you beautiful skin.

But I have a bug after instaling:

* icons are not visable ( search left top and everywhere else) http://dev.saleslinks.nl/forum/ * my programmer thinks its because of the dutch language pack https://www.phpbb.com/languages/

What can we do?

Thanks in advance!

Regards, Hans

Hello, Hans

Your server doesn’t seem to be configured to work with ‘svg’ images properly. Try the following fix -

1. Find and open (or create) .htaccess file (with the dot in front of the file name) inside your forum root folder (http://dev.saleslinks.nl/forum/). 2. Paste the following code in the beginning (very important) of the file -
AddType image/svg+xml svg svgz 
AddEncoding gzip svgz

3. Save the file and refresh the theme.

I added an icon to my forum image but for some reason it is not replacing the default folder icon. How do I get rid of that? This is what it’s doing.

Your help is appreciated.

That extension works but it does not remove the read and unread icons from the index. I am trying to get my custom icon to take place of the read/unread icon.

I tried asking on the phpBB styles forums and they said I should ask my question in the support topic for the style and/or the extension. lol

Hello,

As far as I understand you can’t set the forum images with an extension. You can do it via manual editing templates and adding raw html-code for each forum/subforum. Or you can use the extension mentioned above and just hide the default status icons via css editing.

So you are saying that you can’t upgrade to 3.1X without massive issues?

Hello,

If you don’t use any phpBB 3.0 mods you can do it rather easily.

Do you know where I can place my facebook pixel code to be able to track forum registrations through a facebook ads campaign?

Hello,

Are there any facebook instructions on the matter? Usually code like that is placed either inside the header area or the footer one.
