      First off this theme is wonderful.  Thanks for the hard work.

      Onto my issues:
      I'm brand new to SMF; converting from vBulletin and I seem to be really confused.  I'm running this theme on the following page:
      http://www.parabellumguild.org/smf/index.php

      From what I understand, the theme is supposed to take advantage of the Subs.php under sources for the menu items and sub menu items.  I see the links, but I don't see any sub-menus for the sublinks.  Is this a feature that does not exist for this theme, is there something extra I have to setup, do I have some setting turned off? 

      Thanks.

        Hi and welcome

        There code is there but Pixel Perfect does not support dropdown mens

        The next version will more than likely -

        the issue is that the menu can not be centered in the way SMF currently does the dropdowns due to a double float left - yes you can center it but you end up with a scroll bar on the browser and from past experience people are not too keen on that

        All the best

          Understood, and thanks for the quick response.  This is more/less a "nice to have" kind of feature so I'm interested in seeing what you manage to come up with.  Back to toying with SMF and figure out what I'm doing  8)

            hey there again.

            could you please give me the name of the font you use in your "perfect pixel" logo? Looks real nice, i'm still trying to make a logo for my website, and i think it would look awesome.

            thanks!

              Wow that's a hard one I just create the theme logos without saving the psd

              But looking at it I would say it is either one of these looking closely I would go for Verdana as the dot on the "i" is square

              Hope this helps

                awesome, thanks mate

                Another Hint for users out there:
                For image resizers to work correctly (with link to real size image and all), such as nCoder resizer, you MUST edit the 4 CSS files this theme comes with, and remove the size limitation from the BBC_IMG tag.

                after that, modifications should work fine

                  Once SMF releases the final 2.0, I'll definately be looking to use this theme on my site. Great work Shortie!!!

                    Hi Bad2049

                    There will be a release of this theme for 2.0 and a few others but will probably create a new set due to the changes in the schematics of SMF

                      hi there again.

                      i'm trying to make my wordpress main-menu look like yours in SMF, could you make some basic CSS? I can't quite nail it.

                      At the moment it looks like this:



                      and i'm using this code (and you CSS where needed):
                      Code: [Select]












                      thanks  :wave:


                      edit: just making it bold won't work  :'(

                        Hi There

                        That should work

                        All i can thing of that in the Wordpress CSS the image path is wrong for the two span elements

                        Will be home later so will have some more time

                          nope, was missing one image, but it still looks the same after uploading it.

                          The font seems to be off... that's why i thought making some CSS adjustments just to make the position (using absolute position) and control the font would be easier

                          what's wrong:
                          -The menu itself seems to be 2 pixels higher than on SMF (position, not height).
                          -Font, should be somewhat "boldish" as in SMF

                            Hi Again

                            First thing is change you Wordpress font to Verdana

                            And see how you get on as for the highlight in the span you would probably need the whole main_menu class incorporated into word press

                            Sorry not to hot on WP never used it

                              here's the CSS i'm using at the moment, and the file that contains the menu, could you look it up a bit?

                              i'm not really good with CSS.


                              i can also provide ftp access and a test page if needed.
