Help Needed..
« on: July 27, 2009, 11:34:17 PM »
I am using the theme carbon orange its cool...

In this theme the Board names are centered. Is there a way to align them to left??

And also whats the correct size of logo, I made one 900*156 px but on some users screen its overlaping with the avatar.


Also Iam a noob in HTML or any other programming so pls forgive me if I ask question which u feel are very easy to do..

Thanks in advance...

Hi Again

1. Are you after the board names and the category names moved to the left or just the board names

as for the logo / header the reason it overlaps is because is in a fluid design on the width and hence the logo doesn't scale

But said that you can fix the width easily and then fine tune the logo or for general use use a logo around these sizes 550 - 700 width and 150 in height

Let me know how you get on and if you need more help with the header size then just drop a link to you site and we can get it right between us

Hi Ya

A nice easy one

find the following in the Theme's style.css

Code: [Select]
h4 {
text-align: center;

and change to

Code: [Select]
h4 {
text-align: left;

remember to backup first

Now to change "Child Boards"

Find the file

index.english.php - it can be found in the default Theme \ languages Folder

do a search for

Code: [Select]
$txt['parent_boards'] = 'Child Boards';

And change 'Child Boards' to what ever string you require

Once the edit is complete you need to flush the file cache

Go

Admin > Maintenance > Routine Maintenance > Clear Cache (This is at the bottom of the page)

Any problems let me know

Cool thanks Shortie...

Its working and it looks cool...
Changed the logo to the size u mentioned... waiting to see if anyone has a problem now...

Can I ask another question here...

If yes..

Q :  I installed the reflect image code on my forum...

Done exactly what ever was required and it shows the button when ur making a post but when u use it with [img] code the image disappears and if u use it alone just [reflect] [#reflect] with " / " instead of "# " then it acts like the img code and the image is shown but again no reflection..

Can you please help with that...

Also wanted tho know how can I add more BB codes like blink and add different Message icon ?


Thanks a million for your help..

[blink]You rock...[/blink]

Can you provide a link to the Mod and I will have a look :D:D

The bcc codes in the main are just CSS tags so what are you looking for and I will see what can be done and which files need to be edited – [blink]Just a note Blink is a funny one[/blink]  as it is browser specific so if you view this post in IE the text is stagnant but if FFox and a few others it blinks which is all well and good as long as members understand that but if you are not carefull you will end up answering the same question all the time “Why is my text not Blinking” :D:D

Message icons are easy you need the graphics first :D:D

But go to Admin > Smileys and Message Icons > Settings

There is a check box which says “enable custom message icons” check this and after you have clicked save an extra menu option appears

Any more Q’s just shout

Here are the 2 links from which I D/L the reflect bb code and both don't work similar issues..

Code: [Select]
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1397
Code: [Select]
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1415
Would like to know the details about the Message Icons.. like graphics size and exactly where to U/L  them ....

Also I installed the Thank 0 Matic  MOD but the text doesn't show properly on the board..(check the image below)



[blink]Thanks again for your help..[/blink]


PS : I had to reduce the size of the logo to 550*150 or 560*150 to keep it from not overlapping the avatars..

Okay for the Thank-o-Matic

Copy the attached images to the following directories and all should be okay

"thank_you_b.gif" Theme-Directory/images/buttons" />
“thank_you.gif" Theme-Directory/images/buttons" />
“thank_you_lock.gif" Theme-Directory/images/buttons" />
“thank_you_open.gif" Theme-Directory/images/buttons" />
“thank_you_delete.gif" Theme-Directory/images/buttons" />
“thank_you_maintain.gif" Theme-Directory/images/admin" />
“thank_you_settings.gif" Theme-Directory/images/admin" />


Theme-Directory = the directory where the individual themes are installed e.g. The_PlayGround_v1

As for the reflect mod we need to install it for the PlayGround theme

So what we need to do is uninstall the mod and then reinstall but when you reinstall there is a drop down section at the bottom of the screen where you can install it in to additional themes

If this is unsuccessful I will sort out the edits and what files to edit

Any problems give us a shout

Yep I know what that is

My preference really as I don't like it BUT not a problem I will sort the code out - a bit of poetic justice from the Designer :D:D:D

Shortie

EDIT:

In BoardIndex.Template.php in the carbon Theme

Find

Code: [Select]
// Show the "Moderators: ". Each has name, href, link, and id. (but we're gonna use link_moderators.)
// if (!empty($board['moderators']))
// echo '
//

', count($board['moderators']) == 1 ? $txt['moderator'] : $txt['moderators'], ': ', implode(', ', $board['link_moderators']), '

';


And Replace with

Code: [Select]
// Show the "Moderators: ". Each has name, href, link, and id. (but we're gonna use link_moderators.)
if (!empty($board['moderators']))
echo '

', count($board['moderators']) == 1 ? $txt['moderator'] : $txt['moderators'], ': ', implode(', ', $board['link_moderators']), '

';


All Sorted - also you will probably find this in all my Themes :D:D:D
