Yep that is correct this is how to install a theme

For a member to change a theme to a personal favorite you need to change it in your profile Description / Instructions Here... As long as the administrator allows members to change their theme  >:D>:D

Note that this Theme has not been implemented at GM yet it will in time but there is more work to be done  - So just hang on a little :D

Hi

I left the actual logo out so that it will integrate directly into you community

First question do you have a logo which you would like to use ?? if you have not then I am sure we can create one for you

If you have a logo upload it to an area on your web server and note the URL

The go to the admin control panel and select current theme and about a third of the way down the page there is an input box where you can enter a URL for your logo and then it will show up the size of the logo is 550x140 but it can be half transparent if you require something smaller

If you need any help give us a shout and we will be able to make it work for you

Hope this makes sense

Edit I just tried you site and my logo is there if you would like to test it

Just go to the above and add the following URL

Code: [Select]
http://skinmod.es/foro/Themes/Deep_Terracotta_2009/logo/Deep%20Terracotta%202009.png
Let us know how you get on

Shortie

Thanks

I have just injected the LOGO temporary and it will look okay here is a screen shot

Also your avatars are larger than the default 65 x 65 not a problem you just need to change one line in the CSS if you let me know the size you use I can give you the code

Okay one at a time

The Avatar

open style.css

find the following code

Code: [Select]

And change it to the following and all should be okay

Code: [Select]

Code removed to save future confusion

If you prefer send me a PM with an admin account and I will do it for you

All the best

Shortie - Once this has been done we can address any other issues

Now install the mod touches, let's see if I can have now completed 4.

a question.

can I use barindex.template and index.template a theme, then load the other 3 themes?

that are the same, just change the color?

or am I wrong

thanks

Yes it can be done

I assume you want to be able to change the theme via a set of buttons like this



So that there is one theme installed but consists of 4 colours

If you want to do this there are some tutorials on SMF but as you are running Simple Portal there is a theme changer block with in that so I would just use that and it would solve your problem with out having to code a new theme

if those buttons are even more beautiful.

and besides, I see that there are a lot of colors to choose

where can I find these manuals?

the more you get more things like this theme. jejeje

Hi

You may want to have a read here, the details explained also relate to RC1 - but it is not as simple as they make it out - especially if you want to change buttons and icon etc

Tutorial Here....
