After loading phpBB3 metro theme files on my server – via Filezilla – style sheets are not detected by Wordpress; I can not import the template into the wordpress dashboard. How to do? Why does the template contain 3 folders: phpBB3.0, phpBB3.1, phpBB3.2. Thank you for helping me because I can not use your model.
This theme is not for Wordpress. It’s for phpBB – https://phpbb.com. So first you need to install your copy of phpBB and then add the theme to it following the theme’s documentation.
this theme support the ONEALL extencion?
Mainly the theme supports all the extension that are supported by the default phpBB theme “prosilver”. But sometimes you may meet some style issues that can be fixed via css.
Find the styles directory inside the extension’s pack. Open it, then duplicate the prosilver directory inside it and rename it to metro_blue (e.g. if you’re using Metro Blue). That should help you!
I purchased this theme long ago but never used it nor used your support yet so I wonder how my support could “expire” if I never used one, I checked the sourcecode of the theme and found this horrible google.spy fonts in it and wonder how to get rid of them. Wordpress has a lot of googlefont blockers but its not fair to include 3rd party spyware like google fonts who can read out every single letter one types, my users IPs, their connections and track that everywhere. Same as included socical networks, even if one does not use them, as soon as they are in the sourcecode they can track everyone of my users and their connections, on the other hand I am missing options to set SYSTEM-font.sizes and colors as 13 px are too tiny meanwhile and I am missing responsive design. If you might plan a remake of the theme it would be great to have a wall inside like in social networks, some widgets on github aready exist but they are not supported and hard to build in.. And if you make a new one please leave google, social icons and other stuff away from the core code and offer it only as a widget for someone who wants it but please do not force everybody to use that thanks

having problem on loading website on mobile. the navbar load like shown in image below then it apears in its final view.
is there something to do to avoid this. I tested this in google speed test and on mobile I got this remark (https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.juridissimo.com%2F&tab=mobile).
What mobile browser are you using? I’ve checked on latest mobile Chrome and Safari and it works quite OK.
As for the Google speed test. The first recommendation suggests you to change the design like disabling the tabs and Metro-like header, but as you can understand it will fully change the layout and the theme will loose all it’s visual features…
The second optimization is about Google Analytics and Google Adsense codes -

Dear Author, I purchased the responsive theme for phpBB3 forum. I was wondering how i can change the text ‘METRO’ in the header to the name of my forum?
Best regards, Mahsun
Thank you for the purchase! If you need to replace the logo, just read the theme’s documentation, all the steps are described there.
Hi, how can I add the custom prefooter block? and where can i find those blocks?
Just read the documentation! It’s fully described there
Do you plan to provide an update for the new version of phpBB 3.2.2?
My version is 3.2.1 and I’d like to know if I can update my forum.
The updated theme has been submitted today. You’ll get an email notifications as soon as it’s approved!
Hello! Sorry for bothering. I have some questions! How do I manage Right Sidebar to insert ADS and “Widget”? Well, there is a “custom settings” in the ACP or I have to do it by text editor, css and html? Thanks!

Does this template base on Bootstrap or any other CSS framework?
No, the theme is built upon the default phpBB theme – “prosilver” and doesn’t include any third-party css-frameworks.
I’m pretty much successful installing the theme .. only one issue. At least when not logged in the theme displays an ugly document tree for a split second before it renders the theme design … do you have an idea how to avoid this ?
Do you get the same issue with the default phpBB theme?
There are some issues with the phpBB 3.2 theme:
These are just a few observations I’ve made so far. It seems somewhat misleading to me that the demo cannot be run for 3.2 to see these issues before buying.
“Board index” link at the bottom of the page doesn’t display correctly
“Quick links” text on mobile is off center and looks weird
Notification and PM number counts are not centeredIf text comes right after a quote (no
or newline) it looks “tight”
I have upgraded phpbb to the latest version (3.2.2), uploaded new metro_blue template version, but then I cannot log into admin control panel. It seems to be a bug. To workaround this I change the folder name to use the previous version of Metro, and then I can log in into control panel, and change back folders names as it was originally.
Then it works. The new version of Metro does not let me log in into the control panel. Cache is cleared, styles are recompiled. No more ideas why this happens. Any ideas?
Sorry for the delayed reply!

Do you mean you had two different metro theme versions at the same time? Anyway the situation looks very strange since the version is released quite a long time ago and we never met issues like that. Did you try to disable the Metro theme and set “prosilver” as a default one, then update Metro and try to enable it again?
Well, I use phpBB for more than 12 years and have never faced a problem like this. I did some tests and what I found out is this issue appears only on PHP 5.6.x. I cannot log in to admin panel and script is logging me out all the time. It happens only on Metro for phpBB 3.2.2. It is all fine with Metro for phpBB 3.2.1 and prosilver style.
Everything is fine when I use PHP 7.1.x. It is weird. Hopefully, you can focus on this a bit before next release.
I’m sorry you met the issues but the point is that the Metro for phpBB3 doesn’t include any php scripts at all. It only consists of html templates (without any embedded php) and css-files. So it doesn’t matter what php version you’re using. Moreover the difference between Metro for phpBB 3.2.1 and 3.2.2 is just a few dozen of html structure fixes that don’t even touch any login templates.
Anyway I rechecked the login function on both php 5.6.x and php 7.1.x versions and it works fine for me.
Can you tell me did you modify the older (Metro for phpBB 3.2.1) version in any way? Did you add any third-party extensions into the theme? Do you use any caching software on your server that could cause any issues like that? Do you get any errors inside your server logs after such failed logins?
We would like to help you to fix the issue, so please contact us via our profile page? we’ll discuss it via email.
I do understand this behaviour should have nothing to do with Metro styles, but I just wanted to share my experience with you. I do not edit much, just added some additional HTML and CSS in header and footer. I also tried to reconfigure cookie settings, but no result. I will keep an eye on this and see if this issue remains in future versions. Thank you for the support!
OK! But feel free to contact us if you need our help fixing the issue!
I have bought this responsive theme for phpbb3.2 but my captcha is very old and i don’t know how to activate last google recaptcha in your theme ?
The Metro theme has nothing to do with captcha settings. The theme is only styling. If you need to change or tune your captcha you should change phpBB settings inside the administrator panel – https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3.1/kb/article/how-to-configure-q%2Ba-captcha/
How can we add other menu items to the Quick Links menu? Thanks!
Just read the theme’s documentation. It’s fully described there!
Editing the quick links drop down menu isn’t covered, but looking at the navbar header file we were able to get to what we needed.
When I use Metro as the default templateset, but add another templateset with some overrides on top, the JS files are not loaded from Metro anymore. The T_TEMPLATE_PATH marker is filled with the path to our templateset instead of Metro.
So our templateset “avrotros” inherits from “metro_bw”.
Is this a bug and if so, is there a workaround? For easy updates we’d like to keep Metro intact and we are only modding using a custom CSS. Ofcourse we can fix it by copying the JS files as well but you’d expect that isn’t necessary.
Never mind…. T_TEMPLATE_PATH was added at another point, not Metro.
But without the T_TEMPLATE_PATH the problem is the same.
I added T_SUPER_TEMPLATE_PATH for the forum_fn.js, ajax.js, metro_login_popup.js and metro_common.js and all is perfect now. Maybe you can consider this in the next update of Metro?
T_SUPER_TEMPLATE_PATH is not needed, I found the problem.
Uncomment the parent value in style.cfg:
And it works. Could not find this in the documentation though, maybe this can be added.
Sorry for the delayed response. Could you please tell me what certain phpBB and the Metro theme versions are you using? Is it phpBB 3.0?
