Title: [Theme] iblues
Post by: andrea on January 09, 2005, 02:35:22 AM
This theme came into being while playing around with the SMF template files.

The theme uses an MSN style color combination and menu bar. The header news are in the style of a postit. The button set used is my iblues set - and I had no better idea for a theme name.

The message index has a vertical color striping.

Attached to this post are thumbnail and the theme package.

Some previews are below.

Here you can see the theme in live action (http://www.andreahubacher.com/smf/index.php?board=1.0&theme=3)

For the buttons please view the iblues buttons thread (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=2121.0).

Great design, Andrea.

This theme is really good. Only problem is this below:

Does anyone know what this means -

Notice: Undefined index: mark_unread in /data/members/paid/i/o/iowcomputers.net/htdocs/www/forum/Sources/Load.php(1090) : eval()'d code on line 188

It comes up when looking at a message on the forum at the top where the reply button is.

Please upgrade to 1.0.1, the latest version of SMF.  You're using an older version.

Hi Andrea, the Iblues theme is excellent.

I have to notice a small problem that seems to be specific to Iblues theme. The horizontal line, glow and shadow doesn't show at all or it is not shown correctly, especially in white background.
Code: [Select]
[hr]
[glow=red,2,300][/glow]
[shadow=red,left][/shadow]
The default theme, YaBB SE classic, Aquamania Dark Greenblue02 ,Curves SMF, Apollo, Chat Bubbles2, Juno, Longhorn, xtSMF, XP, Spaceman work OK with these options.

There is also a problem with font faces not working in MSIE but OK with Mozilla - Firefox in all themes but this is not a theme problem, rather a browser one.

Hi,
when If I try to add some smiles to a popup windows in the message compose window, I have this error with both IE and Firefox.

Code: [Select]
Error: moreSmileys is not defined
source: javascript:moreSmileys();
Line: 1

The window doesn't show up.

How can I fix it?

Thanks

Hello Andrea

Could you please take a look back to my message
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=23812.msg229774#msg229774
in this thread. I posted it on March 13.

I don' t see also any responce to messages afrer mine.

Is the Iblues theme abandoned?
Title: Re: [Theme] iblues
Post by: andrea on May 13, 2005, 07:33:20 PM
The iblues theme is not at all abandonned. But I haven't yet found the time to care for that.
Title: Re: [Theme] iblues
Post by: agridoc on May 14, 2005, 05:04:35 AM
I can understand this. I didn' t find any other  important flaw until now. I managed to cure the line problem by changing message background from white to light grey in the stylesheet so the white lines show now or someone could change . It might be all in the stylesheet.

Thanks for replying.
Title: Re: [Theme] iblues
Post by: agridoc on May 15, 2005, 02:26:52 PM
I finally did it. It' just a stylesheet problem as I supposed. The same foreground and background colors are defined for both text and backgound for message display in lines 175-185 in style.css file.

It' s OK for standard text but the same background seems to stop special effects like glow and shadow. To cure this problem.

Find in line 175 in style.css of Iblues theme the code
Code: [Select]
/* Alternating backgrounds for posts, and several other sections of the forum. */
.windowbg, .windowbg td
{
color: black;
background-color: white;
}
.windowbg2, .windowbg2 td
{
color: black;
background-color: #dbeaf5;
}

and replace it with
Code: [Select]
/* Alternating backgrounds for posts, and several other sections of the forum. */
.windowbg
{
   color: black;
   background-color: #eeeeee;
}
.windowbg td
{
   color: black;
}
.windowbg2
{
   color: black;
   background-color: #dbeaf5;
}
.windowbg2 td
{
   color: black;
}

You will also notice that except the solution explained I have changed the background color of the white message alternative to light grey (#eeeeee instead of white in line 179). This is for the white lines to show correctly.

If you want to keep the white - cyan combination you may change the line to a darker color. You will find it in line 105-111

Code: [Select]
hr, .hrcolor
{
height: 1px;
border: 0;
color: white;
background-color: white;
}

Change to whatever color you like and test it. It' s just a .css file.

It seems that gradually I am coming back after many years not struggling with programming. Windows made me lazy...

Download the tar.gz file to your local disk. Then direct your browser to the admin theme install menu and select the option "install from a file". This will upload the theme files to your server and create the theme entry in your database as well.

Dennisronja do you want to install the theme or my change in style.css http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=23812.msg264987#msg264987 ?

If your server runs in safe mode the theme won't install from tar file in your hard disk.

Please explain what you want to do. I might know how to help you.

Title: Re: [Theme] iblues
Post by: agridoc on June 06, 2005, 03:37:13 PM
misjka I don' t see any swedish button blue button set in http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=2121.0

You probably don't have uploaded a swedish button set in Ibues theme.

That' s the reason that you don' t see the buttons and the "news" graphic.

I use the Iblues theme in Greek language but I have made my own buttons with Bloc' s button generator http://www.bloczone.net/button-generator/apollo.php. Another excellent button generator by Marco van Veelen can be found in http://www.yabb.nl/buttongenerator/index.php.

You can copy the default' s theme buttons for Swedish in Iblues theme. Copy the images/swedish directory to Iblues/images. Then you will have working buttons until you find or make a more suiting set.

In SMF you must have another language' s buttons in the correspondind directory (images/lanquage of each theme you use. Otherwise you won' t see the buttons if you choose this language.

Iblues theme uses a different approach in displaying the main menu buttons. In other themes you won' t see even them, if you don't have the language' s button set uploaded in the proper directory.

You may also ask Andrea to make a swedish button set for Iblues.

Title: Re: [Theme] iblues
Post by: agridoc on July 02, 2005, 04:58:33 PM
It' s OK with 1.1 in general.

You can have a look at SMF 1.1 beta and Iblues theme here (http://www.aeromodelling.gr/AMSMF).

It' s a test forum, you can try it. It's in 1.1. beta2. I have put Iblues as the default theme. My working forum is in 1.03, I am waiting for some mods upgrade.

The few messages may look greek, they really are in Greek language.

Deoxys you can find the download file link for Iblues theme in the first message of this thread
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=23812.msg188637#msg188637

Look for iblues.tar.gz after the theme preview thumbnail.
Title: Re: [Theme] iblues
Post by: Bela on July 16, 2005, 08:39:20 PM
Thank you for the theme. I like it very much, and with my favorite color (light blue). Excellent!  :)
And if something does not match in color, not a big deal to modify the color settings in the style.css to get the 'flavor'. Just some "compulsory" HTML and Style Sheet knowledge, and everything is OK. The Sun is shinning - or the Moon - the birds are singing, or sleeping... Everything is nice, until the next step, toward the top.
Thanks once more.

And to be more specific in CSS theme, here is the picture illustrated css-tutorial, dedicated to SMF. (But must be familiar with the code anyway.)

Title: Re: [Theme] iblues
Post by: agridoc on October 13, 2005, 02:19:39 AM
Hello Leoj90

This is a theme topic. There is a Spanish button set for the Iblues theme in the topic Blue Button Sets - how do you like them? (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=2121.msg23808#msg23808) 

The buttons have Spanish text, I think this is what you are looking for.

For the international versions of SMF look in the Downloads (http://www.simplemachines.org/download.php) section  for language (http://www.simplemachines.org/download.php#lang).
Title: Re: [Theme] iblues

Attachements are not showing under the posts in SMF 1.1 RC1?!??!

I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix that. I have made sure that it is set to show in the admin panel, however they are not showing! Thanks

Rob
Title: Re: [Theme] iblues
Post by: agridoc on October 26, 2005, 03:56:24 PM
Rob I don' t understand if this is a specific Iblues theme question or a general question. I mean the attachemens are not showing with Iblues theme or the same problem exists with the dafault theme?

In 1.1 RC1 You adjust attachements permissions through the Admin panel -> Attachments and Avatars -> Attachment Settings

Yes with Iblues theme they show in 1.1 RC1. You can see it working in my test forum in the Upload test (http://www.aeromodelling.gr/AMSMF/index.php/topic,3.0.html) (I will leave Iblues as the default theme for a while).

Iblues theme is mostly a graphics theme so adaptation is easy. Unfortunately Andrea, the creator, has no presence in this forum since May 2005.
Title: Re: [Theme] iblues
Post by: Rob on October 26, 2005, 05:47:05 PM
The problem was with Iblues itself. It didn't have any problem in the default theme. I had gone thru the admin panel and made sure that the Attachment settings was right.

So, with my limited knowledge of PHP, I went thru the Display Template, and changed it around. It works now, but I don't know what was wrong!

What happened to Andrea, he/she made some great themes?
