ChangeLog
======================================
- SMF 1.0 compatible
- ability to turn on signatures
- ability to show avatars on only left side


To configure the theme, go to Admin->Current Theme Settings.
Scroll all the way to the bottom, there are two checkboxes:

Thanks goes to nave@brokeninside.com for the member stars images.

I must say brilliant theme,
Just one question,

Like the bug b4 with the smileys the eval()'d one?
I've got the exact same bug in almost the entire search feature,
in the start, as search result, under each search result...

my guess is the $context array is either not filled properly or wrongly refered to,
as the entire bug text is:
Code: [Select]
Notice: Undefined index: simpleSearch in /home/mt/public_html/SK/phpbb2/Sources/Load.php(1090) : eval()'d code on line 31
obviously the array gets partially filled woth the right info, as the rest of the page looks ok (and is situated in $context), although when i run a text search for simpleSearch I soon see that it comes from Search.template.php near $context['simpleSearch'] (on indeed line 31).

I hope u can help sort this problem,
and I hope I gave sufficient info,
Also, I have my web link in my profile, so check it out!

thx a Ton,
Sat

I used that file to download the files a while back for my forum, on RC1, and it works fine. I did however have to create a theme_info file myself ;)

this is what i have:

Code: [Select]
http://www.melpowerforum.com/melabb/Themes/chat theme
http://melpowerforum.com/melabb/Themes/chat theme/images
/homepages/20/d107436098/htdocs/wsc107436106/melabb/Themes/chat theme

and it shows the buttons only and a few colors but not the bubbles, and it is like a combination of my default smf theme and this new one.

-richard

what good does it do to have a nice board when the author is not there to help you out!
go figure!

yeah, right now i am using the default theme i received in this SMF package. i doubled checked the paths and all images are correct, so far new buttons are ok and a few colors spread out here and there, but the only thing that is happening, i don't see the bubble effect. let me mentioned this really quick, i have installed the new languages for the smf rc 1 because i have many people for other countries using my message board, but i have no other themes installed except the ones (i repeat) that came with the package itself.

when i use the chat theme i get no errors whatsoever, the only thing is no buble effect! i made sure the paths are ok and everything seems to point to the right direction. i have even posted here the full paths shown on the theme settings, and everything i guess seems to be ok as far as paths goes.

i wonder if i am the only one experiencing this strange stuff with this theme.
