Highly recommended

IMHO this is one of the best SMF 2.0.1 themes around. You can easily alter a multitude of settings from your Admin page eg switch between the five different colour variants. Don't worry about the logo - you can easily replace it with your own (500px by 83px).

@Ricky - I suggest you include the 'Default Green' as one of the 'Additional Screenshots'.

I have installed the freshlooks theme after upgrading to SMF-2 and I am very pleased with how it looks. However all new posts are centre justified. Can you please tell me how to change this so that by default posts are written with the text justified left.

I don't remember I had made any thing centered and justified. Can you post screenshot what exactly you are referring to ?

Thanks for the reply. It was my error. I had put in a custom header which affected the rest of the page. I fixed it by placing my header within <div></div> tags.

Update:

I was noticing on many installation that when user used a big logo, like more than 700px wide, it was breaking some layout.
I have now made some changes in this theme, it will not break layout anymore, and you can use logos of any size.

In this theme you can use any type size of logo, preferably a rectangle. What is dimension of your logo ?

PS: I just saw your site, your logo is looking fine over there.

I like this theme a lot and have it installed but....

If you look at the 2 screenshots attached you'll see that the portal headers in 'Freshlook' are basically non existent, in the other custom theme 'Sunshine' they are there.

On the fourm the headers are where they should be and change colours according to the settings by admin or members.

Is there a fix for the blanks on the portal page?

Thanks

EDIT: all css files and images from packages have been tranfered to the 'Freshlook' folders.

Hiya Ricky,

I've been trying a few themes trying to find one that's a fit of my forum.

After installing Fresh Looks and looking it over I installed and activated "Minimalistic Theme by CrimeS"

When I refreshed and again, after refreshing both the Admin & Visitor screens, all the menus and selections were placed in a long tree on the left hand side of the screen with all formatting, colors logos etc removed.

I returned to "Fresh Looks" and everything was back to normal so I thought it might just be a problem with "Minimalistic Theme by CrimeS".

I tried again installing and activating "CLS-Pro-ButtonBar MultiColor by ClickSafe" all the menus and selections are in a long tree on the left hand side of the screen with all colors logos etc removed.

I wnet back to "Fresh Looks and everything was back to normal, then I tried  "Core" and again everything was back to normal so I finally tried the default "Curve" theme and everything again was back to normal.

Would you have any idea what my problem could be? I would hate to have to reinstall unless it's really necessary.

Thanks,

Mac

Update: I tried another theme named "Duvvar" and met with the same problem which leads me to believe that the themes installed with SMF 2.0.2 were not affected by the changes made by "Fresh Looks" so how do I remove all the changes?

Thanks,

Mac

Update 2: Removed FreshLooks - MultiColor and it has left me unable to change themes.

I see that support for this theme and the issue is not forth coming and reinstalling shouldn't be the answer but it appears one that I'll have to resort to.

Good luck to others who decide to use this theme!

Dear TeacherMac,  I visit SMF community almost daily but I am not here 24 hours a day, I can see that you have posted query today and here I am here to answer.  I think its fair enough.

Here it seems that you are have problem which not at all related to theme at all, generally such things appear if theme's file etc is missing. Can you tell me what exactly issue you are now facing ?

I LOVE this theme, but I need to know how to make the white strip in the header taller, to accommodate a theme change dropdown.

Is it in one of the CSS files??

Well, that is added by mod or something, technically nothing should be there, you may ask in support thread of whatever mod you are using..

No, I'm asking how to make the white strip taller, not how to edit the dropdown.
