Hey everyone! I really do hope you enjoy Ozone. This is my first time developing a theme, so if you run into ANY problems at all just let me know, I’m sure we can work through them. You can post here with questions or email me (see my profile for contact email), I’d love to hear from you, and I’ll do my best to help you fix whatever problem it is that you’re having.

nice work..

Looks very good.

good luck with the sales ;)

This looks really nice. Bought a swiss theme, regretted it immediately judging by how it lacked support :(

Yeah I was bummed by that as well, which is actually the entire reason why I decided to create my theme in the first place. As such, you can count on support for this theme. I’ve even helped customers with custom modifications.

Will be getting this theme next week! Excited :D

Hey js!

I just bought the theme, now I’m using it on my forums. I am having a super hard time trying to figure out how you did the ribbon and under-the-logo specific titles.

I’m really new to Vanilla and have only bee using it for a few hours, literally, so your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your support,

Sent you an email, shouldn’t be too hard to get the look you want.

If you like Ozone, don’t forget to rate it 5 stars!

Let me know if you need anything else.

I have recently set up Vanilla and am shopping for a theme. Before I purchase will the plugin Pockets work with this? I just need to make sure ;)

Pockets should definitely be compatible. The only pocket locations you might have trouble with are “Before Content” and the Head pockets, because of the way the content pane is rendered.

For anyone else who is wondering, you can make above-content pockets work by encasing your code in div tags with the “DismissMessage” class. For footer pockets to work properly, you’ll need to make a quick addition to scripts.js. It will be included in the next update to Ozone, but if you can’t wait, just send me a message and I’ll walk you through it.

Hi, I just purchased your theme and love it. I was wondering if you happened to know of a wordpress theme that would match this Vanilla forums theme. Thanks.

Can’t say I do, but let me know if you find one!

Hi, the preview of this theme is different to the one that I got when I bought it and downloaded.

I was expecting announcements to be marked with the ! icon and locked topics to have a padlock.

Any ideas how I get a version of the theme that supports these?


That’s in the next update, should be coming soon.

Version 1.2 with the new announcement/closed icons is out, along with some other bugfixes and minor improvements. Check it and let me know how it works!

Probably the best Vanilla theme I’ve seen…great work! Just purchased. :)

I have a couple questions before I purchase this theme…

1. does the style switcher come in the theme? if not will you provide the code you used for it and where to insert?

2. if i wanted to switch something to standard/stock/default vanilla theme features , would you help support?

3. will all plugins work with this theme?

4. In discussion view the avatar is a pretty small size, anyway to make this bigger?

5. Will motion gifs work with this theme?

1. The style switcher does not. I could provide the code if you want, but it doesn’t really work all that well. There’s a lag whenever you load a new page that causes the theme to “flicker” from the base theme to the ozone theme, and it can be very jarring. I wouldn’t recommend using it for a busy forum.

2. Sure, what did you have in mind exactly?

3. I can’t speak for “all” plugins, no one can, but most of the popular ones should work fine (and keep in mind this is just a theme, plugins won’t break it necessarily, but may not display properly). If you have a plugin that doesn’t display properly, let me know and I’ll add support for it.

4. Sure, it’s just a matter of adjusting the CSS . In particular, on line 744 of custom.css (under /themes/ozone/design/), you can add lines underneath ”.Item .Author img {” such as “height: 80px; width: 80px;”

5. Yeah, the theme has nothing to do with your browser’s support of GIFs. ;)

support seems to be over with lol

Nope, just frustrating that Themeforest doesn’t notify me of new comments. :/

seriously, thanks so much for this theme. amazingly sexy and thank you for all the support you’ve given me.



got a 404 error when activating the theme?!

Hmmm strange, what version of Vanilla are you using?

Hi ! Just bought the theme, awesome work here ! I have some troubles to active a locale (french).

I used these steps : 1. Copy the locale pack (French Transiflex) to your /locales folder. 2. Go to you dashboard under locales and enable the locale pack. I also deleted the .ini cache files.

The texts are still in english. Can you help me ? Thanks a lot.


Problem solved.

Awesome lean and clean design! Purchased. :)

Really loving this theme! Just goes to show how much you can really do with Vanilla! :D

I found a layout issue. If you visit http://www.secondwindprojects.com/ozone/entry/password you can clearly see that the layout styling is off. Perhaps missing a div?

Besides that, everything seems to be working fine. However, I welcome new front and back-end features. I look forward to future updates, thanks! :)

Sounds great! I am so looking forward to it. I wonder what this update will hold. Perhaps more supported plugins? In any case, I am monitoring these comments for an update. Thank you!

FYI fixed this issue in the latest update (1.3)

Sweet, I hope your update gets approve asap! :) P.S. Thanks!

Hi, I would like to know if there will be a chance for me to have a banner or ads on this theme maybe some ad words also? I would like to know if those banner can be utilize for mobile version also? If I need to do modification can you help? By the way I do really like your theme.. is one of the best and clean interfaces! congratulation…
