hmmm OK! Cool... BTW, I believe I read something about you not wanting to give out button information to make our own buttons? Although you would make them for us?  Where do I need to post that request ?  I am needing some... I believe I am going to switch to your Helious Green for RC2 :)

Thanks
Title: Re: [theme] Juno for RC1
Post by: bloc on November 18, 2004, 08:44:12 PM
:) I use a small button-generator for my buttons, so just post requests in the themes threads in here, and I will make them for you.

I am planning to put that generator up on my website, but haven't got the time to do it yet. It needs some tweaking too...

Glad you like the Helios Green. :) A bit more "plastic-like" than Helios.

Updated the theme to work in RC2. Also added several language-sets.

Hi Bloc - I've just put up my first SMF board and was looking for a really clean theme and I'm mightyly impressed with Juno. Great work.
Just a couple of questions - a few of my members are getting on in years and their eyesight isnt as good as it could be and they have asked if its possible to tweak the theme to make the text in quote and code boxes a little larger and also to use a clear background rather than the purplish one in the boxes.

Is this something you could help/advise on as I'm still very much a newbie on this one?

Second question is the subject of intergrating Flash Chat into the theme -  I've recently successfully integrated the flaschat button into the SMF default theme and it works fine - Id like to do the same into Juno but if I follow the flasgchat help file the button destroys the navigation bar and table layout. Do you know how I could just integrate the icon into, for example - the top left corner of the header of the header of the page  so it doesnt interfere with anything?

Hope I havent asked too much - any help will be most welcome
and thanks again for some great themes

Post by: bloc on December 07, 2004, 01:20:07 PM
I am glad you like it - this theme is a bit esoteric really. :)

Now, for changing the quote and code boxes you have to look in the file named style.css. In there you will find these things:

/* A quote, perhaps from another post. */
.quote
{
        color: #000000;
        background-color: #C3B8D0;
        border: 1px solid #000000;
        margin: 1px;
        padding: 1px;
        font-size: x-small;
}

/* A code block - maybe even PHP ;). */
.code
{
        color: #000000;
        background-color: #cccccc;
        border: 1px solid #000000;
        padding: 1px;
        font-family: "courier new", helvetica, "times new roman", serif;
        font-size: x-small;
        width: 99%;
        margin: 1px auto 1px auto;
        #ffffff-space: nowrap;
        overflow: auto;
}


And instead replace that with this:

/* A quote, perhaps from another post. */
.quote
{
        color: #000000;
        background-color: #fff5ff;
        border: 1px solid #000000;
        margin: 1px;
        padding: 1px;
}

/* A code block - maybe even PHP ;). */
.code
{
        color: #000000;
        background-color: #e0e0e0;
        border: 1px solid #000000;
        padding: 1px;
        font-family: "courier new", helvetica, "times new roman", serif;
        width: 99%;
        margin: 1px auto 1px auto;
        #ffffff-space: nowrap;
        overflow: auto;
}


That should make it bigger and lighter in background.

As for your second question I can make a extra button for you and insert the code, but I need to have a copy of you index.template.php file to make them. You can send them to my email-adress in my profile.

Hey Bloc:
I must say that you do great work and should be proud of yourself.

I really like the Juno theme......all your others are great too.

I need to ask you a question........is there a way I could add a small banner at the top  right next to the forum title ????
or since I never use the news box (I always use the fader) is it possible to put a banner/image there instead ???? Where would I put the code ????

Any help would be great!!! Thanks.............-X
Title: Re: [theme] Juno (SMF v1.0/1.01)
Post by: bloc on March 08, 2005, 07:26:32 PM
Thank you. :)

If you find this code in index.template.php:
Code: [Select]
           // Show a random news item? (or you could pick one from news_lines...)
        if (!empty($settings['enable_news']))
                echo '
                                        <div class="headerbodies" style="padding: 3px; padding-top: 5px; padding-left: 10px;width: 260px; position: relative;  margin-bottom: 8px;">
                                        <span style="text-align: left;" class="smalltext"><b>News</b></span>
                                                <div style="height: 50px; overflow: auto; padding-right: 5px;" class="smalltext">', $context['random_news_line'], '</div>
                                        </div>';

And just replace that whole code block with:

echo 'yourhtmlcodehere';

You should be able to put whatever you want there.

I really like your buttons and I would like to use them at my website,  but you made some (small) mistakes in the dutch text:
Here I have written the translation for you:

Name of image          Translation in dutch
admin_move.gif ---> Verplaats bericht
admin_remove_poll.gif ---> Verwijder poll
calendarpe.gif ---> Nieuwe gebeurtenis   or you can make it     Post gebeurtenis
delete.gif ---> Verwijderen
delete_selected.gif ---> Verwijder selectie
email.gif ---> E-mail
go_up.gif --> Omhoog
linktocal.gif ---> Koppel bericht aan kalender
markunread.gif ---> Alles ongelezen
new_poll.gif ---> Nieuwe poll
new_topic.gif ---> Nieuw bericht
notify.gif --> Mededeling bij reactie
notify_sm.gif --> Mededeling bij reactie

I would like to ask you if can make an extra button for the membermap (mod by Gobalopper)
In dutch the text would be: Ledenkaart or just Kaart

Thanx, hopefully you can help me!

Yes..because I use some special ones for the menu.

But I can make those "missing" in the same style and put them up here.

After update my forum to 1.1 RC1 in combination with this skin I have problems.
Get some errors:

Quote
An Error Has Occurred!
Unable to load the 'edit_list' template. 

Can the skin not be compatible with the latest version of SMF?

I have run the update while the skin Juno was active and I have tried to install Juno afterall again. No use...

Suggestions?

Hey! Cool!  :D
That's what I waited for!
Now I need a little advise.
Have 2 forums with Juno.
1 on version SMF 1.0.5 (because update did not work with skin Juno...)
1 on version SMF 1.1RC1 with a Juno working because installed AFTER update SMF!

What can I do best,
In case of update forum1 to SMF 1.1RC1: FIRST upgrade and then copy new Juno-files of first copy new Juno-files and then upgrade?

And in case of forum 2 just copy the new files?

Many thanks!

We've opted to use this nice theme, but are running into slight problems.  I hope someone can assist.

Everything works fine in the default English install, but having installed both Spanish and German languages, some buttons appear to be missing, or something is going wrong.

I've downloaded/unpacked/uploaded the appropriate buttons provided at the beginning of this thread, and those buttons show fine :)

But the "top" menu in the oval bar with the beige band in the middle (home, help, search, admin, profile, etc) doesn't seem to work properly.  In both Spanish and English, instead of having the links appear nicely in the bar itself, the appear as text, not images, and below the bar itself.  I have screenshots, but it won't let me post them here.

Where should I be looking to sort this out?

Thanks

In forum 1, do the SMF upgrade first, then just copy files over ftp. In forum 2, just copy the files. :) All the versions of Juno are the same in features, its just SMF code inbetween the html that needs updating.

the buttons for home,help,search etc. is located in Themes/Juno/images/spanish/images/  ...while the other "normal" ones are in just Themes/Juno/images/spanish/

But the buttons provided in langugae packs are the "normal" style, not the "plastic" style. I need to make those first. Spanish and German?

Ah ha!  I found those buttons now, in the appropriate English folder, and obviously, they aren't in the other languages since you haven't created them yet!  LOL

But the buttons provided in langugae packs are the "normal" style, not the "plastic" style. I need to make those first. Spanish and German?

Yes please.  Would much appreciate it.  We currently have Spanish and German users.  Probably will look seriously at installing French in the next wee while, so perhaps you might want to do that while you're at it (no pressure, just thinking *I* prefer to do as much as possible in one shot rather than be thrown requests a bit at a time :) ).

Cheers, and thanks again.

I should appreciate this also in Dutch... ;)
But the "normal" buttons I use allready in my dutch forum and needed to be edited because of some mistakes in the words... :-[
So I have planned one day to edit the english (plastic) ones in dutch.
It is possible (using Photoshop) but takes some time, I'm not a specialist...

When I will be ready I will give you a sign here!

About the tips for upgrade: Thanks! I will try it later today.

I don't mind doing a bit of photoshop work.  Do you, by any chance, have a "blank"?  And could you tell me which font you've used?  not that it matters terribly if I use a slightly different one, but for consistency's sake, would be cool.

Thanks :)

Post by: Pedja on January 15, 2006, 06:48:21 PM
I am new SMF user. SMF is nice replacement for phpBB2, but it is lacking nice simple and clean default theme. Hopefully I found out about Juno. Great job man! And you just updated it to RC2 so I can use it. :) This should be used as default.

Now, some problems:

I've set Logo image URL option in Theme Settings. However, logo does not show anywhere on page. Is it supposed not to be shown, or I am doing domething wrong? I entered correct URL to image.

I want to translate SMF to my language (there is no official translation jet) and found out about your button-generator. Nice tool. It lacks support for other character sets but ASCII. I cannot enter letters specific to my language, neither Latin1 nor Cyrillic characters. Is it possible to provide support for all character encodings?

Also, since I have to create all buttons it would be nice if your tool offers table of predefined all buttons needed for template, so we can simply enter custom titles. If you lack of time, i would gladly play with it if source is available.


It seems there are two bugs in template both showed up when I turned off showing news on index page:

- Upper bar still shows "News" title on the right end.

- main menu seems to have one spacing element hanging right of the menu. it shows in Internet Explorer (ver. 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519. Mozilla shows page correctly.

Minor issues:

- edit area for messages is quite short in height. It should show more lines, double would be good.

- purple colour used for quoting does not go along with otherwise so smooth designed theme.

- edit button on the bottom of message (just above "Report to moderator" and show member IP links) does not show popup with function explanation, neither shows url in status window

- forum title in upper left corner should be link to forum index page

- text links in messages should be coloured differently that plain text

- while reading topic, there is no option to create new topic

Post by: bloc on January 16, 2006, 04:35:21 AM
Thank you for some very constructive comments on the theme. :) I just replied a bit here...

- Juno does not use the logo field..rather, use the "topbar" window and use ANY html there, left- aligned etc. it will appear on top of the theme.

- about the button-generator....it could use some updating..however just texts on what the buttons/icons are could also be good. It should however show Cyrillic characters I think..since its just a "normal" font? Have to check more.

- "news" is just a graphic really, not a text that can be turned off. Providing a alternative image might be possible though - without the "news" text.

- spacing image? Do you mean the slightly longer right end of the main menu?

- edit area in messages share the same height as default theme really. You could easily change it by specifying "height: 150px;" on the actual textarea itself in Display.template.

- no, purple is..not optimal. Any suggestions...? :)

- Forum title linked..not a bad idea. I will add that.

- links already show a line when hovered..but could maybe use a diff.color to be more visible.

- Create new topic while reading topic is not present in default theme either..the way its done is to create new topic only when in messageindex. Thats more the way SMF works...and feels logical too. In a message view you reply, while in topics view, you start something. All subject to personal preference of course.

I can edit theme, that is not a problem. My sugestions were toward that I guess it is interesting for general usage for everyone.

I am looking to save some space on top of theme. Adding another header would be just wasting space. I am  actualy thinking to move maim nenu bar on top of top bar aligned right. It seems it would look nice and quite of space would be saved for showing forum contents.

By the way I found out another bug. When I turned of using buttons. Main menu showed up as text but link to collapse loged user info stayed as image. whole meny is also aligned to left instead of center. Does not look nice.

I guess button generator would work, if you set encoding to utf-8. Right now, there is no encoding set at all. Also, it is missing option to generate main menu butons.

I guessed if template can turn of news items on page according to forum settings, it is possible to do it in top bar too.

I guewss problematic bar spacer is one you are talking about, but it does not show within menu bar but as separate right of it. I tried on another computer, using the same IE and there menu looks right. Who knows, maybe mu IE went wierd a bit.

I guess, edit box height should be actualy option in forum settings. I will leave it as is to see if I can get used to it. :)

Try just a bit different gray or maybe light blue gray or orange gray for quotes. It actualy does not have to stand out from plain text too much.

Forum title linked to index page is actually requirement by usability standards. I was a bit surprised to find out that no SMF theme has that option, but leaves user to search for home button below.

Link does show underline when howered. That is okay, but again, usability standards require that link is visibly distingushed from plain text all the time. I think that even standard link colours would sit very well on your theme.

About create new topic. I agree, there are various opinions. However, I think this is the first forum I see that does not have post new topic everywhere. It is quite common that when one reads some post, gets an idea to start new topic.

It is actualy part of the most forums policy that users should keep different topics separated and do not post offtopic. Hiding post new topic button actualy encourages user to post as reply instead of new topic, since it is hardly that he will wait to read whole topic, close it and then start new topic. It is expected that user would like to post what is on his mind at one, as new topic. As you guess, am again talking from the usabilty point of view :)

As I said, my goal is to suggest you ideas. I will wait to see what you will accept and implement as default in your excellent theme, and then I will customize it to suit my forum needs.

Thank you for your time and will to help.
Pedja

Maybe strange question on this place but it is most direct from the source...

@Bloc (or other Juno-expert): I have made a mistake in editing the header-box, in Current Theme.
I placed some HTML and after this the whole forum is INVISIBLE!

I assume I have forgot an end-statement or something...

On the general forum we can not find the file to edit directly.

Can someone tell me which file contains this part???

The link to the forum:

Just open index.template and search for:
Code: [Select]
       echo '<div style="text-align: center; padding-top: 5px;">'.$settings['topbar'].'</div>';
then temporary make it:
Code: [Select]
       echo '<div style="text-align: center; padding-top: 5px;"><div>';

Go then into your admin - current theme settings and change the offending bit. :)

Yes! The forum works again in the right skin!
But...
When I now go to the admin-current theme settings I can't change anything: the box is empty!
Does this mean I can start again or is just the original file (topbar?) invisible?
I am afraid when I change something in the empty box and activate again the topbar-settings the old corrupt data will be back again!

EDIT: I could not wait anymore...  ;)
Just edited the empty box and restored the right code and it works fine again!
Seems the old input of the box has been deleted with the removal of the code...?
Anyway: it is solved! Thanks again!!!

Maybe still ONE question:
After move of forum to other server I see a strange thing:

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.croatiahrvatska.nl%2Fphotos%2Fscreen+forum.jpg&hash=03f11c24d50beaa40e733111fc269e31)

I mean of course the little part of the menu-bar on the right!
When I open the forum I don't see that, when I push 'home' even NOT, ONLY when I refresh the screen...
It is not a major mistake but on the old server I never saw that!

Also after move of the forum I got problems with some characters like: ë.
I got a ? instead... I have changed them mostly by hand but it is strange!
(characterset, etc. on both places is exactly the same!)

It sounds peculiar. I can't really see what is wrong...but have you just tried to un-install the theme and re-install it? It will then get a new "spot" in the theme-list on your forum, and might work better then.

Because of the earlier mentioned problems after the move of the forum I have reinstalled it maybe 3 times...
1 time even removed all data completely and install smf again.

Well it's not too big problem... ;)
Since this problems I have installed a TESTforum too!
Much easier to try new things without effect on the real forum!
I will try some things when I have the time.
Thx!

Still I have a problem and this one is bigger than the one above this.
The PREVIEW box is very small!
After I have completed typing a new message or answer and click on preview only one or two lines are visible and the rest must be scrolled with the scrollbar...  :o
In the original skin this is normal.
On the old server with Juno this also was ok.

Maybe you can give me the part of the script in which I can change the size of the preview-box?

I didnt noticed it before...

There is a change in width between the messageindex.template.php and boardindex.template.php / display.template.php. Can this be solved. If i switch from categorie to topic you can see the template changing. It's like the margins or tablewidths are different.

That might be due to some elements requiring more space. I will see if the messgaindex template do not stretch fully out.

Yes it can. Themes made for 1.0.5/6/7/8 will work fine on 1.0.9.

Download the one that has no "11" in its name. :) ( 11 stands for v1.1)

Hmm did I post in the wrong thread or something?  I see my post is gone.

I was wondering if you were going to make chat and link buttons?  I really like this theme and would like those buttons.

Thanks

I would like some help with the menu bar for Juno.

We want to replace it. It is turning out to be much more complicated than I expected it to be, and I could use some help pointing me in the right direction.

Must warn you I am still trying to figure out how to read the code, but I did manage first to add a new, matching button for the theme. But now our designer wants to change the look of the bar.

As it happens, I found the image files for this bar in two locations -- a few in images/images and most of the ones with links in images/english/images (All these in the theme's folder. We have the TP version but this should not make a difference. I think.) My plan was to rename the images we wanted to replace and, insert the new with the old names (Renaming the old one ,say, logouot2 and the new one logout).

We made new "segments" for the menu bar. I uploaded them (I get stuck with all the fun stuff! lol)  and in the images/english/images file was this "spacer" I opened it and there was nothing visible in the file. I took a peek at my site, with the new buttons installed, and there were parts of the old bar visible between our new "segments" . Not quite the look we wanted. How does the spacer work? What do we need to replace it with?

In addition, I accidentally deleted the admin segment (oopsie!) and got the expected red X, yet the bar put a blank segment in place of the missing one. The red X appears below the bar in my browser, and the link is there.

Is there someone out there willing and able to explain how this bar works so I can fix it?
TIA
Lady L.
