Very nice and very smooth.   I like it.  I wonder what that theme would look in a cool Longhorn or XP blue?  Hmmm.

Post by: Satsume on September 23, 2004, 10:48:05 AM
What I meant to say is I could mask the adress bar by filling it with an other web adress each page, but this takes a refresh on almost every action, so this would be a nuisiance if I have a lot of users on my web,

and since al my pages are situated in phpbb2 folder now i can't just make a new folder and replace evrything just like that =S
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC1
Post by: roboter88 on September 23, 2004, 11:01:30 AM
Hi Satsume :)

Well i had exactly the same problematic szenario with a wrong SMF folder (i used 2 dirs 1st smf and phpBB2 -test install then i kept it liek this a while :) ). Well its not big deal to fix it!

Mybe this topic helps
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=16166.0

I fixed it with checking all LINKAGE inside the admin area.
Also i had to manuel update my SQL.
Todo so make a backup of your existing database and then open it with some editor.
Now 1st check if their after you changed the directorys inside the admin area still wrong (old) pathing.
Search for eg. phpBB
Now when their still pathing to the old directory replace all wrong pathing with the new.
eg. replace: phpBB with SMF -> save new and copy/past inside eg phpMyAdmin as sql query. Before this u must drop all bbs related tables...so keep the backup - just incase :)


cheers

You can move your forum from one folder to another. I have never done this myself but I'm certain it's possible and shouldn't be all that hard. I'll tell you what I think you should do.
First upload the file "repair_settings.php" (link to download page (http://www.simplemachines.org/download.php?converters)) to your /phpbb/ directory. Then create another folder named /phpbbtmp/ (or anything else). Download this tool (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=10844.0) and open redirect-settings.php with notepad. At the bottom you can find a the text "$forumurl = '';" . Replace this line with "$forumurl = 'http://mt.mxhost.net/SK/forum/';".
Now you need to upload these redirection files to the directory /phpbbtmp/. You're getting close to the end now.
Open your ftp program and rename "phpbb" to "forum" and rename "phpbbtmp" to "phpbb" and then open your browser, go to http://mt.mxhost.net/SK/forum/repair_settings.php and run it...
Wow this story ended up being a bit too long and I'm not even 100% sure that repair_settings.php will fix it... :D

Post by: bloc on September 23, 2004, 12:23:35 PM
Ok, updated the file with the right thumbnail. It is the same as the one displayed in the overview of themes in this board...same name too, so it can be just saved over the old one.

Nice work Bloc!  I just put up my first SMH board yesterday (oh, the joys of configuring MySQL and PHP on a Win2K server!) and used Helios as my theme .... tweaked the quotation parameters a little and adopted a different smilies set, but so far my viewers really like the look!

I noticed a small flaw with the news fader color (<div id="smfFadeScroller"...).

You need to change the code inside /SMF/Themes/Helios/BoardIndex.template.php
on line 46 from #000000 -> #FFFFFF (white).

thx + cheers

The reply button...that I will have to fix. But in my firefox both my test-forum and yours show up just fine? I use Firefox 0.9.3 though..maybe older versions differ.

Or do you mean the stats/time/login part is a bit wider than the rest? If so, it's intended to be a bit wider.. ;) Sort of "braces" the page under - or so my idea was anyway.

I mean that in 800 by 600, Firefox it streches out the page..If you can try my forum out in 800x600 Firefox, you should see what I mean.

Yes..I am sorry about that. It is the graphics that declares this. Instead of making the layout more complex in wrapping the buttons on low resolutions by more tables, I just declared the row unwrapable. That way it wont push the buttons downward and break the design.

Not a good solution, I know.

Post by: Apnomis on September 29, 2004, 08:20:13 PM
I really like this theme, and I plan to use a modified version of it (coloured slightly differently to match the site). I've coloured most bits how I want it, however I would really like to be able to add a background colour in the "special header boxes", ie the User Info, News, and the board icon key area (if possible). Currently it can only be the same colour as the background ie black and changing anything in the style.css file doesn't do anything.

It seems that these areas are designed to have a grey rounded border around them but have no background. Is there a way to change it so the background to these boxed in areas could be made a different colour?

Also could someone tell me how I edit the theme to make the user info and news boxes to go side by side sharing 50% of the width each instead of being one under the other.

(I hope I explained that correctly enough for you to understand what I mean!)

Thanks to the author..
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC1
Post by: bloc on September 30, 2004, 04:21:56 AM
That tutorial is excellent, but to answer his question about background - one will have to find in index.template.php the line that begins with : $topbox=

This variable holds the frame aorund the newsbox and userinfo and if you add a bgcolor="yourcolor" in the last <td> of that line, you will change the backgroundcolor in both. BUT there is one problem...the graphics for the frame(and everything else btw) is NOT transparent in order to achieve a smooth transition, so you will have to change the graphics as well if you dont want a abrupt change from your color to black.I designed with black background in mind, and have to change all graphics and a few places the bgcolors in order to get a different background...

Moving the newsbox can be done, but you will have to take out the code for putting a logo on the right, and changing widths in the user-info box as well.

Post by: Apnomis on September 30, 2004, 04:37:09 AM
Thank's very much for those replies. I've been using that tutorial, but changing the thing it suggested didn't change what it said it would! However, Bloc's suggestion sounds like just the ticket!

I am aware I'll have to change some of the graphics. At first I was going to change the whole background colour, but it seemed like far too much like hard work to Photoshop all those images! That's why I wanted to give the header boxes a background instead, so I had less to change! I've never done a theme before, or any PHP for that matter, so appologies if these are simple questions to the experts here!

P.S. Great work Bloc, I'm looking forward to seeing your next project ;)
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC1
Post by: bloc on September 30, 2004, 07:15:44 AM
Thank you. :)

My next project is almost ready, and will be less graphic intensive and more "allround" I suppose. ;)

I am enjoying so much the freedom SMF allows in making themes that it is pure fun just setting it up. And of course - without YaBBSE/SMF I would not be into the forum business at all, so this is also a way to give back what the developers have put in of dedication and time making YaBBSE/SMF what it is...

When I was asked to set up a board for a bunch of women :) trying to start a site without the ****** ( excuse my language) that often comes up on similar boards , I tried out several. But fell in love with YaBBSE immediately and never looked back. My poor members had to endure a lot of changes, but never complained - and are now using SMF and its actually increasing the traffic..!

Ok sorry for being a newbie here I'm sure you're busy and all, however although the first bit was nice and straight forward, I can't get the newsbox thing to work ???

I think I've figured out the area that controls the the position of the news and info boxes, but changing them makes know difference. I must have to change that logo placement thing you mentioned. Would you be so good as to tell me where that is and how I change it? Thanks so much!

Well, it is not that much to change anyway so here goes..!  ;)

Find this code in index.template.php :

        echo '
                                                </td></tr></table>';

        echo '</div>'.$botbox.'</td>';
        if((isset($settings['userlogo']) && !empty($settings['userlogo'])) && (isset($settings['userlogospot']) && $settings['userlogospot']=='corner')) echo '<td align="right" valign="top"><a href="index.php"><img border="0" src="'.$settings['userlogo'].'" border="0" alt="logo" /></a></td>';
        echo '</tr>';
        if (!empty($settings['enable_news']))
               echo '<tr><td style="padding-right: 10px;" width="50%" align="left" valign="bottom">'. $topbox.'<div style="padding: 6px; text-align: center;">'.$context['random_news_line'].'</div>'.$botbox.'</td></tr>';

        echo '</table>';


..and replace with :

        echo '
                                                </td></tr></table>';

        echo '</div>'.$botbox.'</td>';
        if (!empty($settings['enable_news']))
               echo '<td width="50%" style="padding-right: 10px;" width="50%" align="left" valign="bottom">'. $topbox.'<div style="padding: 6px; text-align: center;">'.$context['random_news_line'].'</div>'.$botbox.'</td>';

        echo '</tr></table>';


Hope that helps. :)

Hey, awesome job on this theme Bloc! ^_^ I installed it and it works great right out of the box. My members like it too, but I've found that the theme has limits on the size of the avatars. If the avatar image is wider than about 150px the scrollbar shows up on the bottom of the image. If the image is taller than about 200px, the avatar doesn't show up at all. I know that those seem like large sizes, but I've never wanted to have any restrictions on the images that my members could use .. well within reason of course. ^_^;; Please, any tips on how to cure this would be welcome. Also, I would also like to add by site banner to the top of board index, and I'm afraid that I'll need a little help with that too.
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC1
Post by: bloc on October 03, 2004, 06:21:51 PM
I tested it with a 200x300 avatar on my test-board and I do not have any problems there really...if you mean the userinfo-box. But in the display-view the scrollbar does show up on the bottom , meaning the avatar is bigger than the space allowed for user-info on the left.
This is what you can do:

- open up Display.template.php in your Helios(?) theme folder and find:

                // Show information about the poster of this message.
                echo '
                                <table width="100%" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" style="table-layout: fixed;">


- take out the style="table-layout: fixed;" bit and the avatar will show up in full.



A banner to the top of the boardindex? If you mean on top of everything - userinfo too - you can just go to the admin section , find "current theme setting" and fill in the "logo" box with a link to the banner (picture), then choose "location of logo" to "top".

Much Thankies Bloc-san! The avatars now all look okay. ^_^ The logo settings thing is something new that I haven't seen before and a nice convenience. Did you come up with that yourself or is it a new feature that came out with RC2?

No, that is my idea..who knows maybe rc2 will have it too :)

And a nice idea it is too ;) Although as a tip for future revisions, it would be nice if you could add HTML code to the logo link from within the Admin area, if I tried to do anything like set size, add a hyperlink, add alt text etc it wouldn't work. In the end I had to do it myself manually within the php file. Maybe something to think about for the future!

I launched my customised version of your theme on my site this weekend, and it's proved to be a resounding sucess. Couldn't of done it without you bud ;D! I also notice that you've taken on the idea of having dual info/news type boxes at the top of the page for your site too! ;)
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC1
Post by: bloc on October 04, 2004, 04:52:05 PM
Yes I have. :)

I have tinkered with the idea of having a box for html-code, especially for the Themis theme - where i wanted to have a sidebar with all your extra buttons,links etc. (in html). But a severe limitation is that the variable that holds that in the database is set to a fixed size...

So it was hopeless to put in more than a couple of links+image tags in there. I assume one must do something with the source files in order for it to accept more characters.

You're welcome! The color you used is really "spacey".. ;) Gives a special feeling to the site.

I am planning to add RC2 features to the theme - mainly adding "mark unread" button and other small bits, and will update at the same time the admin panel with option of centering left/right/center the logo + once again get the place to put it working right.

I have been busy starting on a new theme, therefore not doing this at once.... ;)

Question on Helios...

For some reason, the Helios Theme thinks that the "online" icon is the "YIM" icon

I looked in the code, and the area is calling for YIM...  but it's showing the online "face".

Does anyone know what is happening here or where the actual use of the icon is determined?

--Kindred
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC1
Post by: bloc on October 27, 2004, 12:12:59 PM
It fetches the icon from Yahoo..so it must be there the error occurs.
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC1

Shouldn't it use the YIM.GIF file I have in my images directory?
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC1
Post by: bloc on October 27, 2004, 05:15:33 PM
Not sure, actually...in my setup, the YIM part of the profile shows online status image - not the icon that look like "Y!". So I am not sure why this is.

Here is link to my board

http://www.thebandalliance.org/smf



I get the exact same error message, and when I asked about it [Unknown] was the only person to answer.  He said something like, "it must be something serious, because that error message is rare." (heavily paraphrased)  But the long and the short of it is that nobody seems to know why it's happening.

Personally, I think it must be something to do with an incompatibility between RC1 and RC2 (forum versions) - the skin was originally made for RC1.  And if you go into the update thingy on your forum, all the Helios templates show up as needing to be upgraded.  Trouble is, I don't know if that would screw anything up even worse.

Any ideas, Bloc?  Would updating the templates screw up the skin?  Thanks :) 

BTW, my forum's at http://www.cafedoom.com/forum/index.php? - haven't been able to centre the banner, because I can't access the template.  Thanks for the skin tho - I think it's the best one of the lot :)

Well, I am going over all my themes for RC2 ASAP, been delaying a bit for the contest :), and will make necessary changes then. Upgrading skins? I think the upgrading only occurs in the default theme..and if you have Helios AS the default(folder called default instead of Helios for instance) the theme will surely break. They are quite different.

I really like the design of this theme. I really would like to see this done in light colors. Blues,whites,and grays maybe.

Yes, I have been thinking about a "lighter" version. We have to see what I come up with. its just the graphics + some color codes that needs changing after all.. ;)
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC1
Post by: Kindred on October 28, 2004, 10:23:18 AM
remember, you NEED to keep the "default" theme folder inviolate...

Well, not quite so bad... but Helios only modifies a few of the *.template.php files. Any files not modifed by (and present) in the Helios directory are looked for in the Default directory.

So, If you want to make Helios your board's only theme...
make sure your default directory remains as it is from base SMF (or modded)
install Helios as a seperate Theme in its own directory
set your board's theme options to use Helios as the default theme and uncheck the box that allows users to change their theme.
Check your mod files to see if they mod any of the *.template.php files in the Helios directory and apply the mods manually to those files.


BTW: I am running RC2 with the Helios theme without any issues....

They are slightly smaller (height) than the standard Helio set, but with a black background, it's not obvious... and I like the icons and colours.

hi i have the same problem - i'd like all the links to be the same colour whether visited or not, and i'd like to change the text colours.

Check the style.css file for :

Code: [Select]
/* Normal, standard links. */
a:link
{
        color: #e0ffe0;
        text-decoration: none;
}
a:visited
{
        color: #e0e0ff;
        text-decoration: none;
}
a:hover
{
        color: #fff080;
        text-decoration: none;
}

Just change all the color-defs to the same value(your preferred one)in this section and links will be the same whether normal, visited or hover(if you wish).

For text colors all over..there are a few, but start with the "body" section and see how far you get:

Code: [Select]
/* By default (td, body..) use Tahoma in black. */
body, td
{
        color: white;
        font-size: small;
        font-family: verdana, helvetica, serif;
}

Glad you like the theme. :)

No, its a "bug" sort of... ;) It will soon be corrected together with some other enhancements. The code for it to show on the right is missing ( the newsbox is there instead now ), but the option is still active. I will put in the choice of putting it right, and at the same time pushing the newsbox under userbox/newsbox to make room.

Or perhaps some other setup, have quite decided yet....

Yes, try to backup at least your style.css,and on.gif, on2.gif and off.gif first. Better yet - the whole theme and then just update with the new files...after that you can overwrite the style.css and images again with your own.

(sukk) Det står faktisk "svar" - det er skrift-typen som er slik. Det er tatt fra den danske oversettelsen - og den er vel ikke feil?

For others that are curious - the font used in this is a bit special, sometimes a "v" looks like "u". ;)

If anyone wants my modded template file let me know and I will get it to you. Again great work everyone at my site likes this one best so far!

Post by: bloc on November 17, 2004, 05:05:04 AM
 ;D It looks great! I assume you have placed it in the theme files? If you want it taller, you *could* put your code inside a <div> or a <table> tag..specifying the height there. But I agreed that  shoutbox in a block is better.

As for blocks and portals, I am doing a small portal of my own...tightly integrated with the themes and SMF, but its early stages yet. I just dont want 2 systems on my forum/website, so I am doing it as a mod within SMF.

Anyway, just ask if your are stuck on something in the theme - maybe I can help out. :)

Yeah with themes for YaBB I was much more confortable working with them. My PHP is lacking at best. I am good with html and I know the PHP basics. I can look through a file and kinda tell what is going on but in the end, I can only get things to work by trying 50 of my "theories" :P I mean at one point on my page when you minimized the header the entire page with the exception of the topbox where you put your banner would minimize lol. In the end I finally managed to get it to work :D

Well honestly I myself at one time preferred the a yabb version better, although after a few months on here, I have LEARNED SO Much about PHP / HTML and sites.  I would not trade this experience for anything.  I read today someplace about unknown talking about learning from building this forum, well he is right, SMF brings the webmaster into the development of the forum and the theme.  The easy way isn't always the best way.  This is a powerful forum, at version 1.0, I dare to imagine version 6.0 or later.

with that said, do what I did, change into comfy cloths, some coke, and read, read, read, post, post, post.  You will not find a better support staff anywhere.


Now, why I am here, Helios (Green), I hope this is the right topic. I was wondering if Version 1.0 will have the News in the header like the brown one?  Or can I make that change myself? 

Also my button request: Staff, Tournaments, DanceLogs, Chatrooms, Arcades, Machines, & other

no, hurry, when you get the time... :) Thanks a Bunch....

Um, not quite sure what you mean by news on top? The newsbox is either to the right of the userbox or underneath it..I think in both RC1 and RC2 versions. But is it your wish to have it on top instead of the current setup?

Having another critical problem, I went to alter my menu and wait for the images, although somewhere there is a restriction on the width of the menu? I added some buttons and Poof logout vanished.

Any work around?  Also, thinking about maybe building a slightly diffrent menu bar that is kinda detached from the flow for larger menus.  Maybe I should just eliminate some button links.  lol

Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC2

Yes, this one is rather limiting...maybe take away altogether the bar under the main buttons will help. That way buttons can just flow on 2 lines if need be.
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC2

I thought about that, although I really do not want to take away from your theme that way.  I was looking at all the images used to build the the theme and thinking of a way to put something together and would stay in the spirit and look of the original theme. 

Although I was going ask you and Babylonking if I could merge the Topleft box a little. I love is PM message handling.   :D  I won't with eather of you have a problem with it.

Yes, it means that. You would just have to replace the single "pod" folder inside "images" - so your buttons, code and mods stay intact.

Hi,

I'm from The Netherlands and i've downloaded the Dutch language pack for my forum.
But there are many wrong words in the Language pack

I've updated / changed the whole language pack, so every word is now spelled correctly,
and I've used a new font

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sharewarez.nl%2Fforum%2FThemes%2Fhelios%2Fimages%2Fdutch%2Fnew_topic.gif&hash=374fa01deb6ce1bfddd5c7a1668e6e80)

Thank you...but I assumed the dutch buttons in the default theme was correct? I took the text-strings from that theme.

If the default theme is wrong you should contact the dutch translator though. In the meantime I think I will just keep the strings which is official at this stage.
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC2
Post by: R3Mo on November 24, 2004, 05:58:24 AM
You can do that,

but I can guarantee you you've made a few mis-types at the new buttons..

Example;

Has to be "verplaats" instead of "veerplats"

Has to be "Poll verwijderen" instead of "poll verwijder"

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sharewarez.nl%2Fwrongbuttons%2Fgo_up.gif&hash=3f1c873584fb9cc18a2788c4a157b719)
Has to be "omhoog" instead of "omhuug"

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sharewarez.nl%2Fwrongbuttons%2Fnew_topic.gif&hash=f332068f3f1ed04d5d3cfd29e329849d)
Has to be "nieuw bericht" instead of "nieuew bericht"

Dutch is really a hard language to learn for foreign people, but i'm born here, so trust me, they really are wrong  ;D
For example;
(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sharewarez.nl%2Fwrongbuttons%2Fadmin_remove_poll.gif&hash=87c8957970cd3f8495a1e177433625a2)
Like I said, it has to be "Poll Verwijderen" but "Verwijder Poll" is good too, but "Poll Verwijder" isn't

I am almost sure that the buttons were translated by someone who was a native-speaker of Dutch and lived in the Netherlands.

Are you sure this couldn't be a different accent/style or something?  Similar to Berliner German...

-[Unknown]
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC2
Post by: R3Mo on November 24, 2004, 06:42:09 AM
No, I'm sorry

Please believe me,
there isn't a accent in The Netherlands that I don't know!
And even if it was an accent, why should you use an accent instead of the real dutch translation?

The translation i've made is 100% dutch, without mistypes!

I think the translator of your version of the dutch language pack has done it with a translation website, or something like that.
Dutch is a very hard language, and there isn't a common place for a word in a sentence, like I mentioned in my 2nd post.

Trust me, I wouldn't create a new translation just for fun  ;)

I can surely update the themes I made.. :) but for default theme I think you maybe have to talk to Andrea about it.

It would benefit everyone if the translation is correct - and new themes/buttons would not have to be updated again at some point.

I will explain it to Compuart in dutch,
and i'm positive that he has never seen these buttons before, because they really aren't right..

@Compuart

Het gaat over de spelling op de knoppen van het Nederlandse language pack op het Helios theme..
Ik weet niet of je al eens op de spelling van de officiele buttons hebt gelet, maar ik heb er toch vrij veel fouten uitgehaald,
maar volgens mij geloven [unknown] en Bloc dat niet  ???

Zou jij ze ff van de spelfouten op de hoogte willen stellen??

I'm pretty sure there are no spelling errors in the default theme, but the buttons differ from the default theme and therefor do contain some small errors.
You can do that,

but I can guarantee you you've made a few mis-types at the new buttons..

Example;

Like I said, it has to be "Poll Verwijderen" but "Verwijder Poll" is good too, but "Poll Verwijder" isn't
Yep, R3Mo is right.  This is how the text labels currently are stored in the language file

$txt[132] = 'Verplaats onderwerp'; (button text can also be 'Verplaats bericht')
$txt['poll_remove'] = 'Verwijder poll';
$txt['topbottom4'] = 'Omhoog';
$txt[33] = 'Begin een nieuw onderwerp'; (but the button text should be 'nieuw onderwerp')
$txt['poll_remove'] = 'Verwijder poll';

I HAVE done a "silvery" version , but wasn't quite happy with it...I might try a couple of ideas though. It would just mean the graphics , nothing else - as in Helios Green. ;)

As promised, heres a "silver" version of Helios. Its just graphics, so just upload the folder "pod" into your own folder named "pod" - in themes/helios(?)/images/ and overwrite the existing files there.

Download: http://www.bloczone.net/files/helios/helios-silver-pod.zip

If your forum is this one - http://www.jrbk.net/dsmf/ - I would suggest you update the forum to RC2 - the latest. The errors is caused by missing language strings...Helios is designed for RC2 and use additional strings that do not exist in Beta 5 version.

Very nice modification with the silver, Bloc!

I do still stand by my comments in the first post I made though... maybe I'll try and bend it to the way I want it some day, because converting your silver theme into gold would make it fit into my site very well... :)

I have green and silver in too and they both work fine. I checked the files i extracted and sure enough none of them are gold. Anyone else have this problem?
Filename is helios-gold-pod.zip

I wanted to also note that the thumbnail for each color has not been updated, is the file there and I am not seeing?

Firstly -  I am sorry the Gold file was wrong. There was a mix-up of files, but it should be right now.

Secondly - no, thumbnails for gold/silver isnt there..they should be in the "images" folder and the archives only contain the pod folder inside "images". But you could perhaps use the images from the first post? Just rename them and put them in right folders..

Wonderful theme I must say, but it is not XHTML transitional.  Some minor thing are forgotten, like not closing a <span> at one point, incorrect number's of </td> and </tr>'s and other things.  Not terribly hard to fix, and I have done most myself, but it needs to be fixed in the main skin.

Post by: bloc on December 05, 2004, 02:11:45 PM
Yes, I know. It has been on my todo-list for a while...just not on the top of it. :)

When I made the theme, i wasn't so aware of XHTML and I have kind of postponed it. But right now I have more time again, so I will take a look at it.

Yes..I am working on that. Its IE that behaves strangely - dont update the image. Just refresh the page and the image appears. Or better yet use Mozilla.

Example:

The letters typed in on this image are C and S: (https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.virtuadarkness.host-dot.com%2Fimages%2Fpersonal%2FC+and+S.gif&hash=413b38a457e87b08bdaf64a91a450324)

By the way, It only does this for the Helios set, the Apollo set works fine.  :)

the posting box gets its background from "input, textarea, button" style defined in style.css.
Try to make a new class for "textarea" alone and remove it from the above style - then change the background-color.

For the login-box - the one on top? - look at "headerbodies" and "headertitles".

Good. :) just curious, what IE do you use? I use a IE6 and it would not update the image before the fix.

BTW, the thing with IE not updating should now work. I ended up adding a querystring to the image - which force IE to get the new generated image.

Works fine in IE for me.

Same here IE 6. Before to generate a button I would have to refresh the page. Now I can use the render button like it's supposed to be.

Speaking about the button generator, when I type in a C into it it looks very much like a O. The S looks like a 8.

Example:

The letters typed in on this image are C and S: (https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.virtuadarkness.host-dot.com%2Fimages%2Fpersonal%2FC+and+S.gif&hash=413b38a457e87b08bdaf64a91a450324)

Other then that, very nice button generator! :)

By the way, It only does this for the Helios set, the Apollo set works fine. :)


I have modified slightly the truetype font on those exact letters. Let me know if there are others that are wrong.

Thanks for the generator.
As in above the "X" is an "H".

 8) Great Template

I got a question though..........as it is right now......the PMs get displayed with the most resent at the bttom of the page, is there a way to reverse that ???? So the most resent is at the top????

That should be possible to set in your profile - under "look and layout preferences". It isn't spesific for Helios.

Hi, Bloc :)  I've been using your Helios template for a while now (just added the new skins too - great stuff).

Anyway, I've been trying to integrate the forum with my website by bringing buttons in from it and adding them to the main template, but I keep getting parse errors and a white screen.  On vBulletin, it was easy to add buttons, but it's giving me a real headache trying to do it on SMF.

Just wondering if you, or anybody else here, could give me a few pointers about where to add the button fields, whether I need to use any special tags to keep the PHP happy, and also where and how to paste the preload javascript - I put it in the head, but it didn't seem to like it.

Many thanks for any help :)

First off, you have to put those in a echo statement - like echo 'your code above';
In other words your code inside single quotes.

But - as your code already include single quotes, you have to make them NOT end the statement, but rather be "escaped". That is, before all YOUR single quotes put a \

You could possibly leave out single quotes in your javascript alltogether...but check first on that one. ;)

Thanks, Bloc - I'll try it, but it doesn't seem to matter what I add to the template, I still get a parse error.  For example, I added

Code: [Select]
<span></span>
with an echo, yesterday, and it still threw up an error.  Tried it without an echo, moved it around, tried all sorts of things, and it always failed.  I think there's something wrong with my forum that's causing the trouble, but I don't know enough to find out what it is.  The only thing I can think of is the write permissions on the server - for the default templates it's 755, but on the Helios themes it's 777 - and it refuses to change when I edit the permissions.  It says it's changed, but when I check its back to how it was. :-\

Where should I be adding the button code?  Before or after the body tag?

Code: [Select]
        echo '
                        document.getElementById("upshrink").src = smf_images_url + (mode ? "/upshrink2.gif" : "/upshrink.gif");

                        document.getElementById("upshrinkHeader").style.display = mode ? "none" : "";

                        current_header = mode;
                }
        // --></script>
</head>
<body>';  [color=Red]****here?****[/color]

No, not after the body tag...if you dont want them on top of the page that is. (and really not very elegant either.. ;) ) It depends on where you want them...but if next to the other main buttons, you will have to find the function "template_menu".

The images show in the buttons alright, but the rollover effect doesn't work.  I guess I can live with it like that (hell, I'm happy just to get them to show at all) but if you can see anything obviously wrong that's stopping it working, I'd appreciate a nod in the right direction.

Thanks very much for the help - I was about ready to quit. ::)  (Still can't edit the template from within the forum - have to edit it directly, BTW - weird)

Edit:  It looks like the button field is in the wrong place in the code I've posted, but it still shows up - I'll have another go at it tomorrow :)

Hi Blunt,

For editing online ( within the forum ) you must de Index-template.php chmodden to 777 than you can edit him online..

Greetings Martin
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC2
Post by: bloc on December 27, 2004, 02:56:06 AM
Also a few changes in admin.template.php is needed - I am not sure what version of Helios you are using.

Otherwise....
For rollovers you make want to look at this:

Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for RC2
Post by: blunt on December 27, 2004, 05:03:54 AM
Martin - I do change the permissions on the server, but they won't change to 777 - just stay at 755.  Funny part is, I can edit the two that read 755 from within the forum software, but not the four Helios skins, which are set at 777.  All I get is a message saying the index template "can't even be found."

@Bloc - I downloaded and installed the version that is on the front page of this thread (RC2) yesterday, or the day before, and I've been using it as a test theme, so that the rest of the forum doesn't mess up every time I do.  But at the top of the index template, I notice that it still reads RC1 in the blurb.  Could it be that you've mixed up the downloads on the server, or is it the right one for RC2, and you didn't edit the blurb?

Thanks for the link to rollovers - I'll take a look at that now :)

No, the RC1 there is just something I left behind. The files are changed to RC2 where need be.

The error "cant even be found" is most likely the themes.template.php. I will look at it now.

UPDATE:
No, the themes.template.php is correct too. This is strange. What path do you use for the theme? does it have any spaces in the folder name?

1st: v many thanks for this beautiful theme.
As you see, the new gallery button is misaligned.
Here is the code:
Code: [Select]
        // Show the [home] and [help] buttons.

        echo '<td><a href="', $scripturl, '">', ($settings['use_image_buttons'] ? '<img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/' . $context['user']['language'] . '/home.gif" alt="' . $txt[103] . '" style="margin: 0px 0;" border="0" />' : $txt[103]), '</a></td>';
        echo '<td><a href="', $scripturl, '?action=help" target="_blank">', ($settings['use_image_buttons'] ? '<img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/' . $context['user']['language'] . '/help.gif" alt="' . $txt[119] . '" style="margin: 2px 0;" border="0" />' : $txt[119]), '</a></td>';

// How about the [gallery] button?

echo '<a href="http://alone.esolutionswork.com/gallery/">', ($settings['use_image_buttons'] ? '<img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/' . $context['user']['language'] . '/gallery.gif" alt="' . $txt[801] . '" style="margin 0px 0;" border="0" />' : $txt[801]), '</a>', $context['menu_separator'];
I'd most apreciate advice on making the new button fit.

Thank you!

Put a <td> in front of it and a </td> behind it, and it will line up like the rest. If you look at the other buttons, you will notice a <td> just before <a href... in those. ;)

Nope, it's "/home2/blunted/public_html/forum/Themes/"

I've got a funny feeling that when I delete the Helios default theme, and switch over to using the four fresh installs, the problem might just go away - or the whole lot will collapse :o

There is something strange going on though - if I choose to use the default SMF theme, and then go to edit the Helios template, I can get to it fine - I just can't do it from within the Helios skin.  How strange is that? ::)

From a user's point of view, you click on the arrow next to the 'home' button, at the top of the forum.  From an admin POV, you can get to it from within the main admin c/p, where it says 'edit news'.

I made a red-looking version of the green one - more plastic-like. See if you like it. ;)

Also made a more neutral blue-grey version is available - less "chrome" in it.

I have one fix, for the Helios for MkPortal. The google image you use doesn't have a transparent background and so it looks weird. I have attached a google logo with a transparent background.

But following up to my previous question, how do I use the pods for the MkPortal theme, not the Mkportal+SMF theme but the one used only by MkPortal.

Sorry forgot the image: http://www.google.com/intl/en/logos/Logo_25blk.gif

Post by: bloc on January 01, 2005, 08:37:20 PM
Update: Helios is now for SMF v1.0 . Adjusted some of the new things(last post icon most importantly) and updated the admin error thing.
- To update just download the archive in first post again and overwrite the helios theme folder with it.

theantidote:
You mean the Helios MKPortal template...that one I haven't converted. The graphics there is smaller , it is to be used in the side-blocks mostly anyway.

So no, you can't directly use the extra color-versions here for that.

Ah, the google image. Thanks. :)
I havent got around to adjusting it, though I have seen it for some time now. ;)

I am happy thay I can now use the last post feature on the Helios theme.  :) I also like how each category has the topics|posts|last post header next to each one of them now. And it saves time being able to edit the style.css in the admin panel now.  ;)

Great job, thanks.

Post by: codenaught on January 02, 2005, 12:01:48 AM
It is doing that for the categories with new posts. Since there is no catbg2.gif image in your helios/images/pods folder it will show that. What I did was took a copy of catbg.gif and renamed it catbg2.gif and uploaded it to helios/images/pods. That will make it use the same category image whether forums in that category have new posts or not. Or in style.css of the helios theme you can change

Code: [Select]
.catbg2
{
        background-image: url(images/pod/catbg2.gif);

to

Code: [Select]
.catbg2
{
        background-image: url(images/pod/catbg.gif);

It appears the Helios theme doesn't have a new posts in category image as far as I can see, just an image for no new posts in a category.

There are 2 settings in your admin section - in "current themes settings" :

1. "use a topbar" - above everything. there you have to use html code for a image.
2. "logo" - either on top(under "topbar" though) , or to the right of the userbox. Here you can just put in the path to the image. No html.

I did not think of that. ;) Yes, perhaps thats the best way...allowing admin to choose one way or another.

If there is an interest I might make a template for these graphics - allowing people to make their own variations that fit in the theme code.

Is Helios compatable with SMF 1.0.1?
I'd like to update, but not be the first one to post errors about it here.

If it isn't, I have to go mess with the space-time continuum some more.  Because nothing changed in 1.0.1 should break this theme ;).

Hi bloc,

I like your helios-theme very much, thx for it! Good work!

I used the helios-theme in my mambo-portal.
But I have one big problem with my mambo-template and the helios theme.
The "mainbody" bgcolor of my mambo-template (AkoDarkGem) is white.
I've choose the white color only for the screenshot to show, it's better to explain.

If I change the bgcolor in my mambo template (index.php) from white to black, it looks correctly.

Picture 1 (white):  <td valign="top" bgcolor="#ffffff">
(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg139.exs.cx%2Fimg139%2F2040%2Fhelioswhite8vw.th.png&hash=08984276b676a6322530fcb6bf77770e) (http://img139.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img139&image=helioswhite8vw.png)

The only way for correct layout ist to change "bgcolor" to black:

Picture 2: (black) <td valign="top" bgcolor="#000000">
(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg76.exs.cx%2Fimg76%2F2598%2Fheliosblack5fv.th.png&hash=cd09b68c17bc83d46e9b59cdb852e849) (http://img76.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img76&image=heliosblack5fv.png)


But I won't use the "black" color in my mambo "mainbody".  :(
Is there no other way to change the backgroundcolor?


Have you any ideas, who I can solve this problem?

This is an issue with the two CSS files...

(I played with this myself, a couple months ago, but I can't remember the xact details of what I changed around)

you need to play around with the definitions in the CSS files regarding the colours of various items. Once you figure out which item controls the background of the mainbody of mambo, you can use an alternate "name" for defining when SMF is loaded...

Hi kindred, thank you for the answer.

Can you make an example for "alternate name", I don't understand exactly what you mean, sorry.  :(
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for SMF 1.0
Post by: Kindred on January 16, 2005, 02:01:32 PM
By default,

template_css.css for akoDarkGem uses
Code: [Select]
BODY {
  background-color : #000000;
  color            : #CCCCCC;
}

style.css for Helios uses
Code: [Select]
/* The main body of the entire forum. */
body
{
        background-color: #000000;
        margin-top: 10px;
        padding: 0px;
}

OK..   no conflict there...

Then you get into the parts of akoDarkGem that define the sections, modules, etc...
Code: [Select]
.sectiontableentry1 {
  background-color : #475063;
}
That is the default, light grey (with blue tones) color of the main section of the akoDarkGem web theme...

Code: [Select]
.sectiontableentry2 {
  background-color : #363D4C;
}
This is a darker grey... I'm not sure where this one is used...


So, you can define the class of something (so that it refers back to the CSS file)...

For mosMainBody(), it would seem to use sectiontableentry1... but I'm not willing to spend the time right now to track it any further through the php function calls...
In theory, you can define a class in the start of SMF's index.php (if you're using [unknown]'s version of the bridge) or smf.php (if you're using Orstio's basic version) that would call a different class for loading SMF...

I made my header logo graphic and included a hotspot with a link back to the overall site home page.

However, it links to the forum home page by default.

How can i change this please.
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for SMF 1.0
Post by: bloc on January 16, 2005, 04:59:18 PM
If you use the "logo" box in admin section of Helios it links back to just the forum startpage...

To change that find this in index.template.php in your themes/helios(?)  folder :

        if((isset($settings['userlogo']) && !empty($settings['userlogo'])) && (isset($settings['userlogospot']) && $settings['userlogospot']=='top'))
               echo '<div style="text-align: center; width: 99%"><a href="index.php"><img  src="'.$settings['userlogo'].'" border="0" alt="logo" /></a></div>';


and also:

        echo '</div>'.$botbox.'</td>';
        if((isset($settings['userlogo']) && !empty($settings['userlogo'])) && (isset($settings['userlogospot']) && $settings['userlogospot']=='corner'))
               echo '<td style="padding-right: 10px;" width="50%" align="left" valign="bottom"><a href="index.php"><img src="'.$settings['userlogo'].'" border="0" alt="logo" /></a></td>';



The parts in bold is what you need to change to your own path/link.

Hi kindred,

The background-color for mosMainBody() is defined in the "index.php" of akodarkgem-template:

Code: [Select]
<td valign="top" bgcolor="#2E3440">
          <?php if ( mosCountModules (&#39;banner&#39;) ) { ?>
            <center><?php mosLoadModules( &#39;banner&#39;, -1 ); ?></center>
            <?php
          
?>

        <!-- TOP Modules -->
        <?php if (mosCountModules(&#39;top&#39;)>0) mosLoadModules ( "top" ); ?>
        <!-- Main Content Section -->
        <?php mosMainBody(); ?>
        </td>

And I don't know, how I can change the background-color to "black" when I call the componente "SMF 1.0.1" without losing this nice darker green in the mosMainBody().

 :-[

I'm using the "MOS_SMF_BRIDGEv2.11stable".

Leftfield...  this should probably be split and sent over to the mambo forum rather than hijacking Bloc's theme thread...

hmmm... my akodarkgem appears to be different from yours. but then again, I never leave anything the way I got it....

I'd suggest checking with Orstio or [unknown] to be sure, but I think you could parse an IF condition in the template file to check if mainbody was loading com_smf....

I rather not you distribute a whole theme here.

Please change the archive to just include the "pod" folder and "style.css", since that is whats modified here. There is no need for all the files.

The main files of the theme should only be the most present version, not several versions that eventually others than me will have to update. It will only confuse.

paste in the section of code... Can't promise anything, but will try to help.

Did you hard code it into the PHP file or did you add it in through the admin section? If you used the Big Box then you need to use HTML code to make it show up.  I think with out code it will show as the text of the file name.

If you used the URL box below the big box you would have a image error (red X) box if something was incorrect. 

Give me a little more about the problem.

No red X only text "logo" and it acts as a link to my frontpage. I used that small box under HTML box in admin section "current theme settings"

Code for button i added to index.template.php

Code: [Select]
// How about the [chat] button?
if ($context['user']['is_logged'])
echo '<td><a href="http://www.xxonkforia.net/yabbse/index2.php?action=chat" target="blank_">', ($settings['use_image_buttons'] ? '<img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/' . $context['user']['language'] . '/chat.gif" alt="' . $txt[801] . '" style="margin: 0px 0;" border="0" />' : $txt[801]), '</a></td>';

// How about the [gsm] button?
echo '<td><a href="http://gsm.xxonkforia.net/" target="blank_">', ($settings['use_image_buttons'] ? '<img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/' . $context['user']['language'] . '/mobiili.gif" alt="' . $txt[802] . '" style="margin: 0px 0;" border="0" />' : $txt[802]), '</a></td>';
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios for SMF 1.0
Post by: Alisha on January 19, 2005, 04:40:06 PM
OK I see we have two problems. Since you used the URL for the logo, did you use http:...../logo.gif  the entire url?   Also, put the url in your address bar and make sure you can SEE the image.  Eliminate any small errors.

Now for the menu buttons, this is the code I use:

Code: [Select]
// Download Centre
if ($context['allow_calendar'])

                echo '
                               <a href="', $scripturl, '?action=download">', ($settings['use_image_buttons'] ? ' <img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/' . $context['user']['language'] . '/files.gif" alt="' . $txt['chatAlt'] . '" target="_blank" style="margin: 2px 0;" border="0" />' : $txt['Download']), '</a>', $context['menu_separator'];

you will need to make some changes, filename, url, alt text and of course the URL for the button.  This should work for you.

Post by: bloc on February 01, 2005, 11:51:33 AM
Not currently..I have done a version of it..but it just dont look the same. You see, the graphics in Helios give the illusion of fading into the dark background, and they stand out well because of all the black.

When I do the same with white, its the opposite - it "recedes" instead. If you look at Apollo its really a early stage of Helios, and it just don't give the same impact.

Of course you can filter out all the black background, but then it would look "fake" somehow, because of the graphics also have dark shadows.

But i do have plans for more white/light themes as well as black/dark ones, with graphics in them. ;)

Or just upload them to different folders, then place the path in the path-to-theme box and press install. They will be called "Helios" all of them, but thats just a name you can change by pressing its name in the overview. The paths will be different.

Thanks Bloc for the answer, and for making an awsome skin! I love the additional color choices.

I was able to rename the different color schemes for this theme by accessing the admin control panel, and under 'Forum Configuration' selecting 'Theme and Layout Settings'.
Then from the box on the right titled 'Theme Settings', I selected the first theme titled 'Helios' and that opened a new screen titled ' Theme Settings' and in the second box I found 'Theme URLs and Configuration' I simply edited the value for 'This theme's name: ' and it worked.

As you may be able to tell, I'm kinda new at this stuff, and it was a biggy for me. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

I really like this theme, and have installed the generic of it.. but before I install any of the colours.. I want to make sure I've done it right.

And I'm not so sure...

www.con-version.org/forum (http://www.con-version.org/forum)

I seem to have been missing the news box... found a code in here to make it side by side.. and that made it show.. but.. they aren't the same height.

Is there a way to force the same height for the Userbox and the Newsbox?

Well, you could set the heights to a set value, use inline css in the div's.

But...you say you opened up and changed...there is already an option for setting news either side by side or underneath the userbox, taking into account  if you use a logo too. Of course, if you altered some of the code there, it might not work...

I only made one change.. and that was putting the code you posted to someone else.. in order to make it sidexside...

previous to that.. it wasn't showing at all.... if I changed that code back (to the original.. which you've also posted in here, page 5 of thread, 2nd post down).. then I think it would show at all again.. but I'll try..

I think I have it turned it on, it displays in ther SMF default Theme..

I would check it out.. code is not my strong suit.. I can put in what I am told to put in..

There was a period where the positions did'nt work properly , and I posted that fix. But it is in the archive now. So you should just overwrite your index.template.php file with the newest, and see if it shows the way you want it to show.

Its a bit easier for me to show you how to arrange things if you use the same file as I do... ;)

Have you set "location of logo" to "top" and "enable news" in admin section / current theme settings? AND put in some news items in "edit forum news" - also in admin section?

If you check this link, this is what should appear then.. http://www.bloczone.net/smf/index.php?theme=5

Yep... Logo is set to top.. news is enabled.. and it's currently supposed to be informing people of when and where the next meeting is... but it doesn't show...

when I had cut and copied the code you had on pg 5 post 2.. it was showing there.. but it's height was not matching the Userbox Height...

You do not need a updated theme, because there are nothing to update in the actual theme. Nothing  in the theme files were changed in the update from 1.0.1 to 1.0.2.. :)

As for adding it to the TinyPortal install routine, it will not happen. The mod will just contain support for the default theme. Reasons for this is that not everyone have Helios installed, but they all have the default theme installed. And the helios theme folder could be named something else....making it impossible to actual find it by name on every .

But I am planning to release a special version of Helios to work with the mod. Its essentially just index.template.php that need to be modified a bit.

I am not sure...if they have their own template - no problem. if they modify something in Display view, MessageIndex,index or BoardIndex, you will have to add that to Helios too.

Look at the mods install files, and then apply it to Helios if needed.

This one http://www.vennekroken.net/bloc/apollo.php works properly
but that one http://www.vennekroken.net/bloc/helios.php print spaces instead of cyrillic symbols.

The problem is the font I use for Helios ..it does not contain support for cyrillic symbols. But I will add another font that do use them.

EDIT: added a option of using a font that support cyrillic sign/charachters. Let me know if its not working properly.

The silver pack is just an update of ONE of the folders of the whole theme. So you need to install the regular theme first, then just replace "pod" folder  with the silver pack.

But I have decided to make a Helios with all the color versions in it. Hopefully it will be ready later today.

I am using the Helios Red theme on my clan's website ( www.closecombatsquad.com ).  I've replaced most of the images I wanted replaced, some of which included the New Post indicator pictures that are displayed to the left of the board.  I made it so that boards with old posts said Old and I replaced the on.gif with my own image so that it displayed boards with new posts with the image I made.  The Old Posts picture works, although the New Posts picture DOES NOT WORK.  I tried replacing on.gif AND on2.gif with my own images but it STILL would not work.  Sorry if I confused anyone.  Any suggestions?

Awesome Bloc!  Thanks a bunch!

Now I have another question regarding this.  Every page looks great on our site EXCEPT when you're in the actual threads themselves.  I have attached three screenshots below to hopefully explain what I'm talking about, and have explained in detail further below what help I'm in need of.

Screenshot #1
This looks great with no problems whatsoever.

Problems here... explained better below.

See the difference between your screenshot and mine (#3)?  I want mine to look like yours, and I haven't edited the code at all.  If need I can email you what I have, but I really want the look to be continuous and flowing throughout all the different pages in the forums.  If it's a code issue could you please let me know what I need to change.  I do understand that I'm using your Gold version, and I think your screenshot is just the original Helios theme, correct?  Maybe that's why their appearance is different?

That link instead of the picture is a safety precaution in SMF. Doing this will prevent  hotlinking pictures from your site. Only members will see them, as it should be.

But just email the pictures to me and i will have a look.

I don't care about the hotlinking of pictures from my site.  This is the only feasible way to upload images onto our FTP server, so that I can use those images on our front page.  I don't have FTP access here at work.  :(  Can I make is so that it doesn't protect those images, and instead be a direct link to the GIF or JPG file?

The short answer is:  You have to edit your mambo and SMF CSS files so they do not conflict.

I still don't understand what difference you mean here..the graphics is all that is changed between original Helios and Gold Helios. Is it something different with some color...? or the placement of certain things?

When I replied last time, I assumed you meant that Boardindex looked different than Display(posts display), and explained that difference. But if that is not what you meant, you have to show me more in detail.

Hm..that looks like something is missing. Have you tried to manually upload all the template files for helios again? And then upload the "pod" folder from the gold archive to the same folder inside the Themes/Helios(?)/images , overwriting the "pod" folder already there?

From what I can see..it seems like BoardIndex.template.php is not the one from Helios..or that it don't have access to some of the images.

I think the problem is that you have a space in your Helios folder name - like "Helios folder". Try to change that to "Helios_folder" and adjust the path in admin section as well.

What should I change in templete to do it? So I can set the table background to black.

If you are going to do put the forum in a table, you will need to look at index.template.php in the forum theme folder - like {forum}/Themes/Helios(?) and possibly style.css.

Basically you can just find the <body> and </body> tags and set a <table width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="background-color: #000000"><tr><td> right after <body>. You may have to edit out the body style in style.css, on margins.

Have you tried copying all the necessary files using FTP?  I had numerous problems installing themes using the SMF upload utility, but doing it via FTP worked flawlessly.


I always use ftp to be sure i don't get those problems :-X
I think the problem is that you have a space in your Helios folder name - like "Helios folder". Try to change that to "Helios_folder" and adjust the path in admin section as well.

The image is there, but I think the CSS background style get the path wrong.

Thanks that did it ;)

Funny to see how stubborn IE is in those case  >:(

Anybody?   ???

Now I have another question about something else here. What file needs to be edited in order to an advertisement, special news story, image/photo of the week, in the area (below) that's highlighted in yellow? I've seen other boards use this extra "dead" or wasted space before. Thanks!

You will need to adjust index.template.php..easiest would be to just find this code:

Code: [Select]
        // Otherwise they're a guest - so politely ask them to register or login.
        else
        {
                echo '
                                                        ', $txt['welcome_guest'], '<br />


                                                        <form action="', $scripturl, '?action=login2" method="post" style="margin: 3px 1ex 1px 0; text-align:left;">
                                                                <input type="text" name="user" size="10" /> <input type="password" name="passwrd" size="10" />
                                                                <select name="cookielength">
                                                                        <option value="60">', $txt['smf53'], '</option>
                                                                        <option value="1440">', $txt['smf47'], '</option>
                                                                        <option value="10080">', $txt['smf48'], '</option>
                                                                        <option value="302400">', $txt['smf49'], '</option>
                                                                        <option value="-1" selected="selected">', $txt['smf50'], '</option>
                                                                </select>
                                                                <input type="submit" value="', $txt[34], '" /><br />
                                                                ', $txt['smf52'], '
                                                        </form>';
        }

        echo '
                                                </td></tr></table>';

And then just insert a extra <td>yourhtmlcodehere</td> right between the last </td> and </tr> in that block of code.

Yes, i know some buttons needs..updating. problem I don't speak the languages..other than english and some of the scandinavian ones. ;)

If you have the time to correct them using my button-generator (http://www.vennekroken.net/bloc/helios.php), I will gladly update the files, and add some credits. If its just the one, I will update anyhow though. Just in case there are more errors with the french buttons. ;)

ummm.... guys...  what's to do step-by-step?

unzip the theme file to your local drive
upload all the files into a directory under smf/themes (i.e. smf/themes/helios)
go to smf admin
choose theme settings
add a theme from a server directory (type in the directory you created and filled)

There...  your theme has been added.

Remember to upload the images from the helios-silver-pod.zip, not just the silver.zip.

The silver.zip only contain a few images that are to be in the /images folder, while all the pod graphics need to be inside /images/pod , overwriting the ones already there.

The color versions is just graphics...the regualr is the actual theme. Read the first post for how to install it. ;)

To purple? Well, you could just try to make all graphics in the pod folder a purple-like hue, and re-upload. Just experiment with it. ;)

Nice Work .... Does not come close Bloc....

I think it a great start, for the newbies such as me in the forum setups

I wanted to ask the language-packs are they to be installed in a directory of there own such as german like english...

The other thing you must use another program other than photoshop, I know you can use notepad for PHP but this is very long winded when being exact with graphics can I ask what other appz are used, as I would like to create a theme since yours is very good but a bit dark I think for aquatics.... LOL 

Your advise welcome

Many thanks Wayne
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios (SMF 1.0.1)
Post by: bloc on March 23, 2005, 08:05:53 PM
No, i use just Photoshop and a text editor. If you look at the code you will see some tricks that php can do. For instance, the looong line of laying out the html of one part of the "pod", is kept in a variable.

That means I can make one variable contain the top-part of the pod and one for the lower part. the first end with a open <td> and the second start with a closed </td>. So i can just type the top-variable+my content+bottom-variable.

And here is the beauty of it, instead of repeating these down the template, I can just name the variable where I need it.

This have to be typed for each new 'somecontent' , right?

echo '<table><tr><td>';
echo 'somecontent';
echo '</td></tr></table>';

echo '<table><tr><td>';
echo 'someothercontent';
echo '</td></tr></table>';

whereas this can just be repeated, and the code is maintained ONE place only:

$starttag= '<table><tr><td>';
$endtag= '</td></tr></table>';

echo $startag . 'somecontent'. $endtag;
echo $startag . 'someothercontent'. $endtag;
echo $startag . 'somethirdcontent'. $endtag;

When there is much html code - like in a graphic/table intensive theme like Helios - you can see the benefits.

Also, i believe strongly in writing up things on paper at first, then in Phtoshop with tables and all. After that then I code it, always using just the text editor, to make sure I have control(and overview) of all the tables etc. I don't want to leave that to a WYSIWYG HTML editor , because it would then be harder to spot mistakes, or make small, but significant changes.


- the german buttons for example will have to be in a folder named "german" inside "images"

Thanks Bloc for that...

Got some things sorted...

Can I be really cheeky and ask for some help with the index.template.php as I would like to be able to place a banner here... as show I just grabed a white one so you can see clearly...

Since this programing of PHP is rather new, I used to the basic HTML ....

I think this would be useful for others may be as well

Sure. :)

To place a banner there, look for this chunk of code in index.template.php:

Code: [Select]
        // Otherwise they're a guest - so politely ask them to register or login.
        else
        {
                echo '
                                                        ', $txt['welcome_guest'], '<br />


                                                        <form action="', $scripturl, '?action=login2" method="post" style="margin: 3px 1ex 1px 0; text-align:left;">
                                                                <input type="text" name="user" size="10" /> <input type="password" name="passwrd" size="10" />
                                                                <select name="cookielength">
                                                                        <option value="60">', $txt['smf53'], '</option>
                                                                        <option value="1440">', $txt['smf47'], '</option>
                                                                        <option value="10080">', $txt['smf48'], '</option>
                                                                        <option value="302400">', $txt['smf49'], '</option>
                                                                        <option value="-1" selected="selected">', $txt['smf50'], '</option>
                                                                </select>
                                                                <input type="submit" value="', $txt[34], '" /><br />
                                                                ', $txt['smf52'], '
                                                        </form>';
        }

        echo '
                                                </td></tr></table>';

If you look ath the last line there (</td></tr></table>) , thats where you make the change. Do something like:

</td><td align="right"><img src="banner.jpg" alt="" /></td></tr></table>

I am using Bloc Helios theme...which btw I love thank you very much.

As you can see I have it running with mambo and want to shorten the forums.  I want to get ridof stats, and the time..time is redundant since i Have that on the top menu of mambo.  I also would like to move where it shows how many private messages to maybe the bottom or something.  I really would like to get rid of the header is that possible?  Thanks

Yes, its possible. Although some code has to be removed. If you open up index.template.php and remove this:
Code: [Select]
        if(isset($settings['topbar']) && !empty($settings['topbar']))
               echo '<div style="text-align: center; width: 99%">'.$settings['topbar'].'</div>';

        if((isset($settings['userlogo']) && !empty($settings['userlogo'])) && (isset($settings['userlogospot']) && $settings['userlogospot']=='top'))
               echo '<div style="text-align: center; width: 99%"><a href="index.php"><img  src="'.$settings['userlogo'].'" border="0" alt="logo" /></a></div>';

        echo '<div id="upshrinkHeader"', empty($options['collapse_header']) ? '' : ' style="display: none;"', '><table width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">';

That will get rid of the whole header. But you probably don't want the upshrink button anymore, so remove this line too:
Code: [Select]
echo '<td><a href="#" onclick="shrinkHeader(!current_header); return false;"><img id="upshrink" src="', $settings['images_url'], '/', empty($options['collapse_header']) ? 'upshrink.gif' : 'upshrink2.gif', '" alt="*" title="', $txt['upshrink_description'], '" style="margin: 0px 0;" border="0" /></a><img id="upshrinkTemp" src="', $settings['images_url'], '/blank-upshrink.gif" alt="" style="margin: 0px 0;" /></td>';

You want the PM section available somewhere...present on all pages , or just on the forums start page?

Yes, you install Helios several times, and then overwrite the "pod" folder with the color version you want in each. The one language + buttons is placed in all the Helios installations.

The question I have is...

if you go here:
http://www.dirtyjeeps.com/nctuners/forum/ssi_examples.php

and look at the menubar function.  It has part of the bar graphic attached to it.  How do I get that off of there so I can use the menubar on the main page?

Thank you.

If you ar eon Mambo, then PMs are listed in the login form...  alternatively or additionally, you can add a link in the usermenu to index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=##&action=pm

Hi kindred, thanks for reply.

I dont have mambo and SMF bridged, in fact at this point users dont even login to mambo at all i disabled that feature only because I dont know if i really have a need at this point.  I do have coppermine and smf bridged though.  That really came in handy.

I will try that other option...thanks

It's very simple.  All you need to do is download the red pod package.  Extract the files and upload them to your /Themes/helios/images/pod directory.  It's something someone could do for you in just a few minutes, but it would require access to your server.

You should already have all the necessary images inside the "red" archive. Maybe you missed some when uploading? They need to overwrite current ones.

Also, check that you are using the latest version of Helios , there were some changes quite a while back.

How do I do that?
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios (SMF 1.0.1)
Post by: bloc on April 26, 2005, 04:49:31 AM
Easiest would be to simply upload - not use "browse" in admin section - the Helios theme to 3-4 different folders, named Helis_red, Helios_green etc. (don't use spaces).

Then upload the "pod" folder from the color variations and replacing the "pod" folder in each of these Helios folders...and simply install them all by writing in the path in the admin section and presing "install".

A bit cumbersome, but there you have it.
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios (SMF 1.0.1)
Post by: tconline on April 26, 2005, 11:09:55 AM
Hrmmm - looking at the 'pod' folder, the default one has like 62 picutres.  But uploading the contents of 'helios-pod-red' will mean it has 91 files.

What's those extra image files for exactly?

Also, there is another 'zip' file inside this one that have about 60 files in it.

EDIT: Don't worry, looks like the ZIP was just zipped up an extra time. It's the only one that has the extra zip in it.

It does work fine with both 1.0.2 and 1.0.3. I just haven't updated the title.

Hi
I am trying to reduce the width of the Helios theme, so that it fits with the widlth that I have for the rest of my website. Where do I go to reduce the width to 760px? Thanks

Easiest way is to find this code:
Code: [Select]
<body>';And replace with:
Code: [Select]
<body><div style="width: 760px;">';
and finding this:
Code: [Select]
        echo '
        </body>
</html>';
replacing with:
Code: [Select]
        echo '</div>
        </body>
</html>';
Title: Center the Helios theme???

Hi

I would like to get SMF, using the Helios theme, centered but cannot figure out how. Here is the website. http://www.tagderry.com/youth/home.shtml If you click on Forum (up top) it will load the SMF with Helios theme. Any help would be appreciated.
Title: Re: Center the Helios theme???
Post by: bloc on May 06, 2005, 07:47:57 PM
Try removing all the "align=center" in the first divs..they center the content rather it seems.

Have you tried setting align="center" in JUST the first <table> tag, leaving the aforementioned divs free of any alignment?
Title: Re: Center the Helios theme???
Post by: jrbk on May 06, 2005, 10:47:36 PM
Hi Bloc,

Thanks for the reply. I am not sure... I would assume that you are referring to index.template.php??? I have tried a few different things in between the <body> tags, but my knowledge of php code is limited. I did find a message on the smf forum that talked about it but it didn't seem to provide a solution. You can find it here. http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=33355.0 What was suggested is to create  a table to surround the entire forum with align="center". Each time I do though it returns the follow error message. I have tried changing things around in addition to adding the '; after the html commands.

Template Parse Error!
There was a problem loading the /Themes/helios/index.template.php template or language file. Please check the syntax and try again - remember, single quotes (') often have to be escaped with a slash (\). To see more specific error information from PHP, try accessing the file directly.

You may want to try to refresh this page or use the default theme.

I have even tried to tell the style sheet to center the body but I am not sure what the code is that would give it that command. I feel like I have done all that I know to do. If you haven't checked it out yet you can see it here. http://www.tagderry.com/youth/smf/index.php

Bloc, any suggestions would be helpful

Hi Bloc,

Thanks for the reply. I am not sure... I would assume that you are referring to index.template.php??? I have tried a few different things in between the <body> tags, but my knowledge of php code is limited. I did find a message on the smf forum that talked about it but it didn't seem to provide a solution.

Basically you need to add both a containing <div> right after the <body> tag, and THEN a <table> tag with align="center" after that. Then it will be centered. The key here is to have something aligned, it must be relative to a container.

I have attached the modified file here, in case you need it. Just rename it to index.template.php.

This is a theme called Helios for those interested. :) It's probably not everyones's cup of tea, but I enjoyed making it tremendously - and hopefully others will find a use for it. There is a test-forum at http://www.bloczone.net/smf where the theme can be seen in full effect.

Add-ons:
If you want a different look on the theme, just download one of these alternative sets and upload its content in the ..themes/helios(?)/images/pod/ folder, overwriting the original files.

As with my other theme, the option of adding a logo ( picture ) is in the admin section ("current themes settings"), along with choosing where to put it. If you don't want to use it, leave the textfield blank. Graphics are free to use as long as they stay within a SMF forum.

Any comments are welcome.

How do you gather all the zip files together so you can install everything at one time, not sure. You know the additional upshrink buttons and all. Or will the admin panel know what to do with those files, and if this is so what and where do you find that on your admin pane.? ;)

Unfortunately, that must be done manually.  Extract the theme and it's modifications and combine them.  Once combined, re-zip the files (with NO subfolder) and upload the Zip file through your Admin panel.

Helios is now updated to a multi-color theme, changing to all the color variations in easy to click buttons on top. Also added adjustable width and centering the theme. Plus easier addition of extra buttons.

Take a look at first post for details.

I just installed the new multitheme, and it doesn't work properly - it appears that the grapics are linked in my numbered directories, but the actual directories seem to have color names . . . I am just figuring this out now . . . but otherwise this is a really nice looking theme.

Im not sure if this has been posted, I read a few pages and got tired of reading.

In IE6 if I goto my forums I can see all the graphics.  When I click on the color chooser everything immediately goes to "x"s.  If I close the browser and reopen it the images come back.  In Firefox they all work fine.

This is on two forums:
http://www.nctuners.com/forum/
http://www.dirtyjeeps.com/forum/

ANY help would be appreciated!
Thank You.

In my Cpanel I checked my error log.  It saying that images in /home/nctuners/public_html/forum/Themes/helios_multi/images/pod/ are not there.  For instance:

Code: [Select]

I go look under /public_html/forum/Themes/helios_multi/images/pod/ to see whats there.  I have the color named folders but no graphics at all.  So its looking for the graphics under /pod/ but not under /pod/green/ or /pod/blue/, etc....

What do I do?  I love this theme and spent alot of time today customizing it.

hm..it sounds like the color choice somehow get lost. It should not..but a quick solution is to simply copy whats in one of the color pods into the regular pod directory, so you have a fallback.

I will check to see if I can duplicate this on my site.

Post by: bloc on May 20, 2005, 08:59:35 AM
Ok, I found the bug - and a solution. It seems that IE don't send values in submit buttons that are of the type "image" - which i use. FF does not mind though.

So i have adjusted it to use the normal on Firefox, but rather colored submit buttons on IE instead. It should now search the right folder for its files.

You can either uplaod the whole archive again, or just exchange the index.tempalte.php file attached. The change made are this:

Find this:
Code: [Select]
         <input style="border: solid 1px #808080;" type="image" src="'.$settings['images_url'].'/thumbs/brown.jpg" value="brown" name="options[theme_color]" onclick="this.form.submit();">
         <input style="border: solid 1px #808080;" type="image" src="'.$settings['images_url'].'/thumbs/red.jpg" value="red" name="options[theme_color]" onclick="this.form.submit();">
         <input style="border: solid 1px #808080;" type="image" src="'.$settings['images_url'].'/thumbs/golden.jpg" value="golden" name="options[theme_color]" onclick="this.form.submit();">
         <input style="border: solid 1px #808080;" type="image" src="'.$settings['images_url'].'/thumbs/green.jpg" value="green" name="options[theme_color]" onclick="this.form.submit();">
         <input style="border: solid 1px #808080;" type="image" src="'.$settings['images_url'].'/thumbs/blue.jpg" value="blue" name="options[theme_color]" onclick="this.form.submit();">
         <input style="border: solid 1px #808080;" type="image" src="'.$settings['images_url'].'/thumbs/silver.jpg" value="silver" name="options[theme_color]" onclick="this.form.submit();">

And exchange with this:
Code: [Select]
         <input style="border: solid 1px #808080; background-color: #503000; color: #503000; font-size: 6px;" type="' , $context['browser']['is_ie'] ? 'submit' : 'image' , '" src="'.$settings['images_url'].'/thumbs/brown.jpg" value="brown" name="options[theme_color]">
         <input style="border: solid 1px #808080; background-color: #600000; color: #600000; font-size: 6px;" type="' , $context['browser']['is_ie'] ? 'submit' : 'image' , '" src="'.$settings['images_url'].'/thumbs/red.jpg" value="red" name="options[theme_color]">
         <input style="border: solid 1px #808080; background-color: #908000; color: #908000; font-size: 6px;" type="' , $context['browser']['is_ie'] ? 'submit' : 'image' , '" src="'.$settings['images_url'].'/thumbs/golden.jpg" value="golden" name="options[theme_color]">

Buttons? the font used is axaxax.ttf. A bit obscure, and I had to modify it abit because it rendered a couple of letters too close to each other...

But as mentioned in an earlier post, a generetor is here:
http://www.bloczone.net/button-generator/helios.php

I will try to add some icons that more resemble these things you want, but for now you can at least get the texts/button.

First off, i want to thank everyone and anyone involved in the development of SMF. Coming from the world of the bland phpbb2, its uplifting to finally find something that is well designed and hella fast.

too my question..

On my board, im running 1.0.3, with the Helio Multi theme. Im pretty good with the straight HTML, and Adobe.. I just need some assistance with the code in making a RADIO button for the Shoutcast MOD within the theme. I need some assistance with which file would i be modifying, where, and best way of going about it.

Many Thanks!

Title: Re: [Theme] Helios (multi-color) for SMF 1.0-1.0.3
Post by: bloc on May 27, 2005, 12:57:08 PM
First off, i want to thank everyone and anyone involved in the development of SMF. Coming from the world of the bland phpbb2, its uplifting to finally find something that is well designed and hella fast.

too my question..

On my board, im running 1.0.3, with the Helio Multi theme. Im pretty good with the straight HTML, and Adobe.. I just need some assistance with the code in making a RADIO button for the Shoutcast MOD within the theme. I need some assistance with which file would i be modifying, where, and best way of going about it.

Many Thanks!

Sully

Do you want it on all pages..or just the frontpage of the forum?

Hiyas Peeps...Bloc this is an awesome theme thanx ...fits our site perfect... www.crazyfirst.com is a gamers site... I am curious if I can add a button to open a program called teamspeak ... can be found at www.goteamspeak.com , it is a realtime audio chat program we use when playing as a team online, I would like to be able to have this button open the program on each person computer as it is resident on the users pc, but I am not sure what to point the button to or if its possible... and if it can tell the program to connect to our personal ip once it opens? any words of wisdom? thanks all for the great support and work here!

Last I looked into it it just took a class from style.css in the Helios theme folder to render them..I am not sure if it still does that, but in any case it was the catbg or titlebg classes that were used.

And I see they are using that now.. ;)

Hey, I love the theme, it will probably be the only theme I use until I am able to get a custom skin.

I was toying with the coding a little, trying to get my ads to show up in the header area, but I was unable to, I kept recieving parse errors.  As you can prbably tell, I do not know much about PHP.

I was wondering if someone could either tell me, or just zip an edited file, how to place and iframe in the PHP so it would show up where I want it, as shown in the attached picture.  I want the ads to show up on every page, so I am guessing the changes would be made to index.template.php.

Thank you very much,

Whoops, cant attach anything yet, here is the pic:

If you want a static one you can goto Admin>Current Theme's Settings - then put the URL of the ad in the Logo : field.

In the latest Helios version, for the button - use one of the "custom-button" options to simply link to the arcade page. For display in posts you need to change Display.template.php with required code. I think thats it.

Dunno if this has been mentioned here yet, but the German language files don't reflect these changes in Admin-->Current Theme's Settings:

- Forum width:
"Forumbreite:"

- Use either numbers(pixels) or a percent, like "700" or "85%"
"Verwende entweder Pixelanzahl oder Prozentangaben, wie "700" bzw. "85%""

-  Default theme color:
"Standard Forumfarbe:"
("Original, Rot, Grün, Silber, Blau, Gold")

- Turn off the color chooser!
"Schalte die Forumfarbwahl aus!"

- Use button 1
"Verwende Button 1"

- Path:
"Dateipfad:"

- Just use the filename, and be sure to put the image in "Helios_Multi/images/"
"Einfach den Dateinamen angeben und die Bilddatei in "Helios_Multi/images/" ablegen"

- Link:
"Auszuführender Link:"

- Show for members only?

Here's a patch for the issue addressed above. It's really needed since nothing showed up for all the points described above. (Not even the English texts.)

So extract the file "Settings.german.php" from this archive (http://www.schwarzsilber.de/apix/Settings.german.zip) to:
Themes\helios_multi\languages\

I couldn't change the colors' names but I guess that's okay.

You are better off adjsuting the code first, to get in at least.

Just go into index.template.php and find id="upshrinkHeader" in there.

Then the next words are something like "empty($options['collapse_header']) ? '' : ' style="display: none;". Set this to ....display: auto;

I don't why this has happened, but you probably have edited it such that the rest of table is "hidden" when upshrinked. Thats what the id="upshrinkHeader" will do. So you need to check if thats set on something not closed for example. Use the original Helios as a reference.

Post by: Kolya on June 26, 2005, 09:20:59 AM
First of all: This is NOT a problem related to ORIGINAL Helios multi.
Don't worry anyone.  :)

The problem is obviously related to that permanent Users-Online-Display at the top, you built for me.
I haven't changed the file myself. I'm not much of a PHP-Coder... :-[
Since it worked before, that hack might be incompatible to the latest upgrade to SMF 1.05 somehow.

I tried setting it to auto, as you said and could get in. But it only worked so far.
Clicking the button still made the forum vanish. A simple reload brought it back though.
Currently I have reverted to the original index.template.php of Helios Multi, which works fine as I said.

Hopefully you can have a look at the file to reintegrate that hack sometime, as I really liked it, but it's not urgent of course. Anyway thank you for your help. :)

File: /www/htdocs/kolya/Themes/helios/Display.template.php (eval?)
Line: 317
Either my path is wrong or that's a bug...checking...
Well it seems like it's looking for a file (Arcade.php) that would be part of a mod I guess (SMF Arcade 1.0.3). Does that mean I have to install every mod that Helios is premodded for?
I would consider this a bug since I never had the Arcade installed nor did I change the files of Helios_Multi_Premodded in any way.



The titlebar of "UsersOnlineToday" uses the titlebg.gif whereas all the other stats (Members, Forum Stats, etc) use catbg.gif in their title.... Is this information more important than the others?

Possibly the colorchoice could load different css-files matching the themecolor?
For a start one could create the css oneself as long as the choice loads them.

After going through the archive it seems I made a mix-up of some files..so I went over them again and updated them. I suggest just download the 1.1 version one more time (its updated) , and remove all template files ,and upload the new ones. Be sure to reomove them all, since 2 files should not be there at all.

Or simply uninstall and re-install this new one. Sorry for the confusion there.

seammer:
Don't install the 1.1 version on a 1.0.5 forum. They are different, thats why I have 2 versions. The 1.0.5 version CAN work on 1.1 forum, but not the other way around. Plus of course the error I have corrected, as pierse reported.

Helios does not use Stats.template.php at all, and the Stats.php is a source file.

Its SMF 1.1 the mod won't install on. Probably because the code has changed, and the package manager can't find the right code to replace.

How would I be able to change the font for the boards to a different font?

Ex. Changing the font for everything to  Arial

Try to look in style.css for "body" tag and change "font-family" values to for example Arial.

So for example, it'd be font-family: Arial, Arial, Arial; ?

It won't be wrong..but there is no need for it. And if someone don't have Arial on their system, its nice to set a second choice like helvetica or sans-serif at least. Although that too won't "break" anything if its missing.

Hello. I have recently installed this forum software and the Helios theme. My users love it to pieces and they have one requested change.

On our old forum http://www.autoservltd.com/sssc the posts are seperated from one another by a space. I provided a link so you could see what I am talking about.

I would like to do this to the Helios theme as well but I have no clue where to even begin.

Any help will be appreciated.

Which version of SMF are you running?  Is your version of the Helios theme compatible with the version of SMF you've currently running?

There is button-generator for Helios over at http://www.bloczone.net/button-generator/helios.php which you can use.

This is not too hard to make..but it requires adding a little code. Open up Display.template.php and find this:
Code: [Select]
                echo '
                <table width="100%" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0" border="0">
                        <tr><td class="', $message['alternate'] == 0 ? 'windowbg' : 'windowbg2', '">';

                // Show information about the poster of this message.
 

then just add a break or 2 right before <table> tag , like  ...<br /><table width.... If you also want to have slight border around each, I would suggest adding this to the <table> as well:  <table width="100%" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0" border="0" style="border: solid 1px #606060;">

No, they should be there.

Check that you have a "Themes/Helios(?)/languages/Settings.english.php - and if you do, check that it contains approx. 20+ lines. If not, you need to exchange yours with the one in the archive. All strings are contained there.

Is it possible to remove the login option from the board index?  I'm using Mambo right now, and I've found that when users log in from the forum index they are not being bridged to the Mambo user table.

I'd like to keep the user information there once logged in, but I don't want to give the option to log in from there.  Can this be done?

Post by: bloc on July 06, 2005, 05:30:46 AM
Yes, by excahnging the login form with either nothing - or a small message that syas "log in from Mambo" or something. You need to find this code:
Code: [Select]
        // Otherwise they're a guest - so politely ask them to register or login.
        else
        {
                echo '
                                                        ', $txt['welcome_guest'], '<br />


                                                        <form action="', $scripturl, '?action=login2" method="post" style="margin: 3px 1ex 1px 0; text-align:left;">
                                                                <input type="text" name="user" size="10" /> <input type="password" name="passwrd" size="10" />
                                                                <select name="cookielength">
                                                                        <option value="60">', $txt['smf53'], '</option>
                                                                        <option value="1440">', $txt['smf47'], '</option>
                                                                        <option value="10080">', $txt['smf48'], '</option>
                                                                        <option value="302400">', $txt['smf49'], '</option>
                                                                        <option value="-1" selected="selected">', $txt['smf50'], '</option>
                                                                </select>
                                                                <input type="submit" value="', $txt[34], '" /><br />
                                                                ', $txt['smf52'], '
                                                        </form>';
        }

and do something like:
Code: [Select]
        // Otherwise they're a guest - so politely ask them to register or login.
        else
        {
                echo 'Please login from Mambo';
        }

That would show user-info once logged in, but not the login form when not logged in.

That's exactly what I wanted to do.  Another thing... Am I missing something?  Prior to 1.1b3, there was an option to either enable or disable News Fader.  I can't find it anywhere.  When it was disabled the news box in the helios theme didn't even appear.

To get rid of this box do I need to modify something on the template, or is it an easy setting that I'm missing?

"Enable News?"
"Show news fader on board index"

Both in admin / current theme. first is in all pages, second just on main page(the fading thing).

The mod doesn't change any of the template files - as far as I can see - so it should work fine. BUT - if the mod won't work on SMF 1.1beta3, then you will need to get the mod author to update it.

Any ideas on how to correct, anyone? I have downloaded the latest update and will install it once I can get to the SMF Admin again.

Great work on this theme, Bloc. It is one of the best looking ones I've run across. I plan to later modify the colors just a little to better fit with my overall site coloration, but other than that I am very happy with it.

You are missing a image , Northener. "Blank.gif" in the "images" folder of your Helios theme.

The link you are seing is the key to the automatic upshrink routine. It will remember the state , even if the page isn't refreshed( = goes through the server again). Simply by sending a query through that image.

The file "MOS_SMF.php" is not part of SMF, maybe the Mambo brigde? Anyhow, looks like its messed up somehow. I would suggest starting over with Mambo/brigde/SMF, especially since its a local installation.

but as shown above the white box with red x shows different properties as shown in the code window.

just so you know i am using IE6 and thats where im getting the error. i opened up the forum with Firefox and the up/down buttons work fine and no mess ups happen.

so what is different that things arent working correctly with IE??

maybe join my forum and see if you have the problem yourself with your browser?

I keep getting this error, Session verification failed. Please try logging out and back in again, and then try again. , whenever I try to change a user's karma from topic view with this theme, works fine on the default theme, any hints to why this would happen.

Edit:
Hmm looks like I found the problem:

Code in Helios Display.template.php:

<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=modifykarma;sa=applaud;uid=', $message['member']['id'], ';topic=', $context['current_topic'], '.' . $context['start'], ';m=', $message['id'], '">', $modSettings['karmaApplaudLabel'], '</a>

Changed to this:

<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=modifykarma;sa=applaud;uid=', $message['member']['id'], ';topic=', $context['current_topic'], '.' . $context['start'], ';m=', $message['id'], ';sesc=', $context['session_id'], '">', $modSettings['karmaApplaudLabel'], '</a>

...Anyhow, looks like its messed up somehow.

Ya think? bwahaaa... Sorry, Bloc, just kidding--I simply couldn't stop laughing at the above line. Actually I did start over again and all is right with learning Mambo and SMF again. Re-installation is kind of touchy due to the fact that without a complete and utter dumping of all concerned files, some vestiges of the old configuration remains behind. This time I completely deleted all traces of Mambo, SMF and the bridge from my web server directory hierarchy, cleared cache and cookies, shut down the browser and started as if I'd never installed any of the software before. That was the only approach that finally worked for me, although other's mileage may vary of course.

Now I am furiously rebuilding the site to deploy it on my new ISP's servers middle of next week when my new domain is ready to go. Keep a weather eye on: blackswanonline.org in the upcoming week (probably nearer next weekend, actually) to see the site in action, replete with Helios_Multi_Blue. Don't suppose you'd turn all those theming talents toward a WoW (Alliance faction) template could you? :P

Depends on how your ISP has it aliased in their DNS settings and lookup records. Some alias so that it works either way. Some alias that the www is required. Ask your ISP what their preference is and go with that unless they will enter it in their lookup and reverse lookup tables to work with or without the www prefix.

Great site, by the way. Little too many graphics gizmos for my taste, but a great design and layout, nonetheless.

Bloc you were such a great help with the break tags I was wondering if you knew of a good place to put google ads on this template. I am using version 1.0.5 of this theme.

I would like them to be toward the bottom of the forum. The top is alright but the side is no good at all.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Now I am furiously rebuilding the site to deploy it on my new ISP's servers middle of next week when my new domain is ready to go. Keep a weather eye on: blackswanonline.org in the upcoming week (probably nearer next weekend, actually) to see the site in action, replete with Helios_Multi_Blue. Don't suppose you'd turn all those theming talents toward a WoW (Alliance faction) template could you? :P

Cheers!
Ci

Will check it out when its online. As for WoW theme, I do have a draft lying around, haven't had the time to look more on it though, so no promises. :)

All pages would be best. Unless there is a way to turn them off in non-public areas. Then I would want them in all public areas but not in the members only sections of the forum.

No I haven't generated it yet. I am up in the air about the colors I want to use. I want to ads viewable by everyone so just showing it to guests really won't help me any.

Thanks for the thought though. I know the adsense script is in java so i can post some previously used code to give you an idea of what it looks like..

Code: [Select]
<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "removed";
google_alternate_ad_url = "removed";
google_ad_width = 728;
google_ad_height = 90;
google_ad_format = "728x90_as";
google_ad_channel ="";
google_color_border = "000000";
google_color_bg = "262626";
google_color_link = "FFCF90";
google_color_url = "FFCF90";
google_color_text = "FFFFFF";
//--></script>

Post by: Minsc on July 11, 2005, 09:18:28 PM
Im not sure if this has been posted, I read a few pages and got tired of reading.

In IE6 if I goto my forums I can see all the graphics.  When I click on the color chooser everything immediately goes to "x"s.  If I close the browser and reopen it the images come back.  In Firefox they all work fine.

This is on two forums:
http://www.nctuners.com/forum/
http://www.dirtyjeeps.com/forum/

ANY help would be appreciated!
Thank You.

In my Cpanel I checked my error log.  It saying that images in /home/nctuners/public_html/forum/Themes/helios_multi/images/pod/ are not there.  For instance:

Code: [Select]

I go look under /public_html/forum/Themes/helios_multi/images/pod/ to see whats there.  I have the color named folders but no graphics at all.  So its looking for the graphics under /pod/ but not under /pod/green/ or /pod/blue/, etc....

What do I do?  I love this theme and spent alot of time today customizing it.

I'm having these errors on my forum in both IE and Firefox.  They happen using both the 1.0.5 and mod version of Helios.  Know of anything else that could cause this?

I can't really see the link to the theme by the errors..they seem to occur in the Sources files. The last one - in theme's BoardIndex.template - might have been carried into the theme.

Have you tried to upgrade the forum? Not update, but upgrade - so you remove any traces of earlier mods/faulty(perhaps) installations?

Look in index.template.php , under "template_menu()" .All the main buttons is defined there, so you can just duplicate one of them and adjust it to what you need.

Sorry for my english.

It can be single color quite easily - go to admin/current theme settings and choose "turn off color-chooser" , then choose your color in  "Default theme color" listbox above that.

You will then have a single Helios, with the colorversion you like. None of the other color versions will then be fetched at all.

Optimizing - or even repairing the tables(in phpmyadmin) and "clear non important logs" in admin section?

If these also seem to change nothing, try to upgrade the forum again, you may have some faulty files.

I use themes for specific topics on my site. It seems when I change colors, it just goes back to the board index page, rather then the topic I use the them on. Also in my admin center, I have empty boxes, but nothing else, there is like 5 of them, and check marks, but there is no text next to them to tell me what they are for.
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios Multi (SMF v1.0.5 / 1.1beta3)
Post by: bloc on July 22, 2005, 08:39:35 PM
You need to use the theme - set it temporary in your profile - to see all the options in "current theme settings" of Helios. Editing it when inside another theme won't work properly because the template modified by Helios is NOT loaded then...only the current theme's own template(that of course does not have these options).

The color changer always goes back to startpage. If there is another theme selected as the default one, you won't see the difference.  I would recommend having just one set color when you are using Helios in a single board.

I am not sure..if it are writable, then it might be something else.

But..to change it to silver you could use the settings to turn-off color chooser, and make silver the default color-choice. They should be right under the "edit index.." etc.

2.  I cannot see the "pod" pictures.  They are the round objects that can change color.  I would love to see them

any help would be great.  I am using version 1.0.5

it also wont let me edit the script via the admin panel.  "The file you are trying to edit... can't even be found!"

I think you need to put the contents into a folder - Themes/Helios/ - and not just right into Themes/ . That won't work.

Its put that way in the template. To change it you would have to shift the various code blocks in template_menu() inside index.template.php. You will see that they start with a comment ( // comment here...) So you could pretty much just move the whole block which seems to belong to a comment - up and down.

Bloc.. I still can't get my banner to install using those blocks for logo, etc.  Do I need to set the permissions differently to do this?

No, you should be fine..but the "userlogo" is for path-to-a-picture only, while "topbar" must be html code.

autumn_whis - what I did was copy my forums banner into /public_html/forums folder. Or into the folder that is where SMF is installed.

Then go to your admin page, click on Current Theme, look for "Theme Options and Preferences" then look for the "Logo" field. Just type in the name of the banner, save the settings and then do a refresh of your forum (hit F5). The banner should appear now.

Hope that helps.

Bloc - is there a PSD file for the 'New Posts' icon? I like the 'glowing' icon, but have trouble at times distinguishing if its a 'New Post' or 'No New Post' icon. Do you its possible to share the PSD file? and I can even share the resulting icon (if i my PS skills are up to editing. we can work via PM if you like).

No..I am afraid I just did those quickly for that occasion...never kept it. The whole design is in PSD of course, but I changed the on-off when doing Helios_multi, just replacing the gifs.

The message icon when looking at the list of posts in a forum is Red X'ing on me in the list.   Any idea?   The icons are there when you post, and when looking at the post...but not when you look at the list.

Is it a setting I am missing?

Basis:  That didn't work either.   :(  Whenever i try and make changes in those fields the theme changes from Helios back to the default theme that came with SMF... and the logo never shows up at all.  :(  :(

I tried putting: nameofimage.jpg in the logo: field, but that didn't take.

Then I tried: nameofboarddirectory/nameofimage.jpg and that didn't take.  And each try make the theme default back to the SMF theme that came with the board.

I put the jpg file in the directory where the board is.  I didn't put it in themes, or in the Helios folder... just in the board's directory.

Any other ideas?

Are you sure they just don't have their Shrink header button pushed? Ask them if the triangle is up or down. If it's facing down, then they have it Shrunk and should click on it. That's the triangle to the immediate left of the Home button (if you knew this, I apologize in advance for lecturing!).

Hey Bloc - Great work on this theme!!! I've got this theme running on three boards, two at 1.0.5, one at 1.1 beta 3 Public.  I was going to PM this to you but thought maybe others might have seen this and have an answer.

My issue is small and simple. On the 1.1 beta 3 version, my avatars are being "scrunched" down. They look like they're about 20pt's short of what they were intended for.  For instance, my avatar is 80w x 120 h, and it looks like it's scrunched to 80x100. I've searched all through the AP and can't find any place to adjust avatar settings, and have searched through the files associated with this Theme thinking that possily there's some height restrictions in the Header, but can't find anythere there either.

Weird, but if anyone has any ideas, feel free to share them!

No, this is the easiest..but if you get errors you can rateher upload it to a Helios folder inside Themes and point the second text box to that folder(just add "helios" or what you use to the end of that long path there), then press install.

You will lose them I am afraid...if you simply overwrite the files. You could compare them though and maybe re-apply..its not that many changes.

That was an error on my behalf. You need to use the newer Display.template.php from the archive - it has been updated.

I'm sure Bloc will chime in with an easier way to do this, but the way I did it (and you can use temporarily until Bloc tells you a better, more elegant way... ;)) was to go to the table that is set up to hold your menu buttons (on or about line 309 in my editor; I've done some other customization so your line numbers will most likely be +/- 10 or so). Look for the comment:
Code: [Select]
// Show the menu here, according to menu sub template Turn on the border for that first table <table... border="1">. You can now play with the various left/right-margin settings, width, height, etc. After you get the menu tweaked the way you want it, set border="0" on the table, and wah-lah, centered menu buttons.

Cheers!

Can you give me a link to your forums so I can see what header you're speaking of?  Better yet, have you checked under Forum Configuration - Current Theme Settings - and verify if you have a check in the box besides Enable News?  Just want to see if you add an announcement in the News section if it appears.

http://shadow-clan.com/forums/

I have changed the way that menu is shown for Helios_multi..so instead of aligning ti the left, its aligned centered in that theme. But you can apply the same in your theme:
This is the code you need to find:
Code: [Select]
                // Show the menu here, according to the menu sub template.
 echo '<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" style="text-align: left; margin-left: 20px; background-image: url(' . $settings['images_url'] . '/pod/pod-midbar.gif);" ><tr>';
 echo '<td><img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/pod/pod-leftbar.gif" alt="gfx" style="margin: 0px 0;" border="0" /></td>';
 echo '<td><a href="#" onclick="shrinkHeader(!current_header); return false;"><img id="upshrink" src="', $settings['images_url'], '/', empty($options['collapse_header']) ? 'upshrink.gif' : 'upshrink2.gif', '" alt="*" title="', $txt['upshrink_description'], '" style="margin: 0px 0;" border="0" /></a><img id="upshrinkTemp" src="', $settings['images_url'], '/blank-upshrink.gif" alt="" style="margin: 0px 0;" /></td>';
                template_menu();
echo '</td></tr></table>';
        // The main content should go here.  A table is used because IE 6 just can't handle a div.

And replace with:
Code: [Select]
                // Show the menu here, according to the menu sub template.
 echo '<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" style="text-align: left; margin-left: 20px; background-image: url(' . $settings['images_url'] . '/pod/'.$options['theme_color'].'/pod-midbar.gif);" ><tr>';
 echo '<td style="width: 39%; background-color: black;"> </td><td><img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/pod/'.$options['theme_color'].'/pod-leftbar.gif" alt="gfx" style="margin: 0px 0;" border="0" /></td>';
 echo '<td><a href="#" onclick="shrinkHeader(!current_header); return false;"><img id="upshrink" src="', $settings['images_url'], '/', empty($options['collapse_header']) ? 'upshrink.gif' : 'upshrink2.gif', '" alt="*" title="', $txt['upshrink_description'], '" style="margin: 0px 0;" border="0" /></a></td><td><img id="upshrinkTemp" src="', $settings['images_url'], '/blank.gif" alt="" style="width: 2px; height: 20px;margin: 0px 0;" /></td>';
                template_menu();
echo '</td><td style="background-color: black;width: 59%;"> </td></tr></table>';
        // The main content should go here.  A table is used because IE 6 just can't handle a div.

As you can see, I just made the table 100 % in width, but added a empty <td> at first and last which together adds up to 99%. The rest will then be pushed against each other, making it centered. :)

I think you are using the Helios_multi11 theme on a SMF 1.0.5 version, thats why it won't work. Its meant for SMF 1.1beta3 hence the "11" number in it. ;)

Download the Helios_multi archive instead and try that.

One suggestion, that I found with this theme, if you can put some kind of logo in the Current theme settings, under the Topbar, add in a logo and then as long as your users have the header expanded, they can click on that logo to go back to your Forums home page. Just a suggestion, as I have a problem seeking that home button all the time....

Awww, you guys give me way too much credit.  You're sweet.  :)  You know, as a quick FYI, the zombies in that image are made by a friend of mine... he makes them from scratch for his Halloween yard haunt each year ::: amazing!  http://www.pumpkinrot.com is his site, and seriously.. be prepared.  ;)  The first time I saw his new skelly... under the 2005 section, I thought:  "anyone missing a relative?" lol  he's awesome.

Again, thanks you guys.  Those compliments mean a lot coming from you all.   :)

PSSST!  Bloc!  C'mere!  I have about a 200% chance of getting my zombie-makin' buddy to give an okay on making a dark theme using his ghoulies. ;)  And, the original images are huge, high res... and just ready for hot theme designer to bring them to life.

... that's not a hint or anything.   ;D

A theme based on these images? ;D I would like a try...if you let me.

Btw, the image you sent, I haven't forgotten it - just been so busy with updating themes and stuff. If you still want to do something with it, I can send you some ideas we can work further on? ( could do this on PM though ;) )

don't know if it has been already said (I've checked the last pages of this topic ...)
There is some "bugs" in the french version of Helios theme :

first, the home.gif correct spelling is "Accueil" ;)
here is the button : (https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg235.imageshack.us%2Fimg235%2F6920%2Fhome8ld.gif&hash=7fc9ad89c22380374771cd5779409335)

The second bug is in admin, setting the theme's properties :
English version :
(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg291.imageshack.us%2Fimg291%2F2047%2Fheliosadminenglish9ui.th.gif&hash=fef7bac2eaf444188fe331d46c16a8df) (http://img291.imageshack.us/my.php?image=heliosadminenglish9ui.gif)

French version :
(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg154.imageshack.us%2Fimg154%2F6518%2Fheliosadminfrench4wg.gif&hash=465fb4ac24ca9c0f0820efa96c73e021)


Something is missing I guess ^^
Here is the translation :
Forum Width = "Largeur du forum"
Use either numbers(pixels) or a percent, like "700" or "85%" = "Utilisez soit un nombre (pixels) soit un pourcentage, comme "700" ou "85%" "
Default theme color: = "Couleur du theme par défaut :"
Use button 1 = "Utiliser le bouton 1"
Path: = "Chemin :"
Just use the filename, and be sure to put the image in "Helios_Multi/images/" = "Utilisez simplement le nom du fichier, et assurez vous de mettre l'image dans "Helios_Multi/images/"
Link: = "Lien :"
Show for members only? = "Montrer uniquement aux membres?"


And the last point :
the "new.gif" image is missing in french... it's not really a problem, 'cause it's replaced by the text version "Nouveau"...

Thanks for this nice theme ;)

I tried to put some links, but never saw results :S

Thansk for the translation, I will add this to the archive.

Button 1-3 are your own links/buttons. But you MUST add a link and a image path to it, otherwise it won't show. Its done like this so you can hide any of them, by just setting them to blank.

Its not theme specific then.

Title: Re: [Theme] Helios Multi (SMF v1.0.5 / 1.1beta3)
Post by: Gargoyle on August 06, 2005, 01:13:55 PM
Yes I have done all of that. I agree on the random thing. It picks and chooses which files are good enough for it and which ones are not pretty randomly.

Hey while I have you here how can I change the highlight color on the calendar view? Mine is really off. It's like a light blue color.

Thanks for your time... ;D
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios Multi (SMF v1.0.5 / 1.1beta3)
Post by: bloc on August 06, 2005, 01:59:08 PM
The calendar? You need to adjust default theme colors then..since Helios doesn't use its own calendar template. Admin/Calendar/ ..find the colors defined down there.
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios Multi (SMF v1.0.5 / 1.1beta3)
Post by: Gargoyle on August 06, 2005, 02:47:29 PM
No I mean the highlight color in the calendar itself...

You know when it highlights the current day when you are viewing the calendar ?

I would think it would be in a .css file or something. Maybe a setting I can edit or add to the helios .css file ?
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios Multi (SMF v1.0.5 / 1.1beta3)
Post by: Gargoyle on August 06, 2005, 07:23:08 PM
It's line 37 of Calendar.template.php

For some reason it is hard coded. I know you are not responsible for the code in the default template but do you now how I could go about making it a variable ?

Just curious... ;D
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios Multi (SMF v1.0.5 / 1.1beta3)
Post by: bloc on August 06, 2005, 07:46:35 PM
You could just copy the Calendar template over to Helios, adjust it and then that will be used instead of default theme. I haven't included it because it was just one tiny change.

Does that hold true with all of the template files ? If I just place them in the helios directory they become the default ones ?

If so that would make life a bit easier on me...

Thanks for the tip Bloc.

Post by: bloc on August 06, 2005, 07:53:26 PM
Yes, thats exactly how you create a theme.Copy the ones you want to change, and the rest will just be falling back on default theme.

The benefits are great, because you basically can just alter index.template and style.css, and not worrying about all the other templates - if thats is what you require.

When I check the detailed version checker, for the current themes (helios multi for 1.1), I get this:

Quote
Current Templates   1.1 Beta 3   1.1 Beta 3 Public
BoardIndex.template.php   1.1 Beta 3   1.1 Beta 3 Public
Calendar.template.php   1.1 Beta 3 Public   1.1 Beta 3 Public
Display.template.php   1.1 Beta 3   1.1 Beta 3 Public
MessageIndex.template.php   1.1 Beta 3   1.1 Beta 3 Public
Settings.template.php   1.0   1.1 Beta 3 Public
Themes.template.php   1.1 Beta 3   1.1 Beta 3 Public
index.template.php   1.1 Beta 3   1.1 Beta 3 Public

Only calendar.template.php is 1.1 beta 3 public. Since the templates work, can I just change the version thing on the top of the templates?

Your forum stat stuff doesn't look like it's working either...

What version of SMF are you using? Also what version of Helios are you using?

I ran both 1.0.5 and 1.1 and had no problems. But I have read if you have different versions of the theme and SMF stuff won't work right.

Moose, your site says' it's running SMf 1.0.5, but you have beta 3 Helios!  If you look at the very bottom of your forums main page you see the SMF 1.0.5 tag line. Then if you right click and open up the page source you see this line down maybe line 20ish or so:

Code: [Select]
        <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://moosetv.net/forum/Themes/helios/style.css?beta3" />

This indicates that you have Helios them for 1.1 Beta 3, and it will never work right.  I also fell into this and had to uninstall the Helios theme, and reinstall the one for 1.0.5.

I found a bit of a bug... Not really a bug but a coding improvement for the 1.1 version. The members awaiting approval link does not go where it should go. I changed mine to the following and it works perfectly.

index.template.php lines 223-226
Code: [Select]
// Are there any members waiting for approval?
                if (!empty($context['unapproved_members']))
                        echo '<br />
                                                        ', $context['unapproved_members'] == 1 ? $txt['approve_thereis'] : $txt['approve_thereare'], ' <a href="', $scripturl, '?action=viewmembers;sa=browse;type=approve">', $context['unapproved_members'] == 1 ? $txt['approve_member'] : $context['unapproved_members'] .

Never owerwrite the default folder..because Helios use a great deal of the templates there for itself. That is - the ones that are not modified. You see, the default folder is a "fallback" for all other themes. Put Helios in a another folder, and allow members to JUST use Helios, if you wish to use just one theme.

Go into "current theme settings" and set "default color" there once. Press save.

ah..you either don't have all the files that Helios needs(Themes.template most likely) or you're using an earlier theme that did not have automatic color changing..or possibly "left-over" files from that is still present...

Try to upload Helios theme files again, overwriting with the most recent, link is in first post here. Be sure to pick the right version , depending on what SMF version you have. :)

i was afraid you would say that since you had helped me with so many changes on a lot of the template files when i first installed. i had made the changes to so many different things but i guess i will have to re-do it all.

This may have been answered already but, Have you done any work on making the visual warning mod show up on the Helios Multi?

I have it installed and once I switch back to the sm default, everything is visable.

I have some folks that get a little carried away at times and they need to me reminded when they step out of line.

One last thing, This is a great looking theme!

I did a search of this thread but I didn't find what I was looking for.  Please forgive me if it has been answered.  I want to add a header image to the helios theme, but I cannot find where to do it or how.  I have looked in the index-template.php file for headerarea, but there isn't one.  Is it in some other file?

Thanks!

Heres somthing a little screwy.

I'm using the Helios Multi theme and have flash chat intergrated with it. At the bottom of the page, there is a block showing how many usres are in which room. For the bulk of the users on the board I am told that everything looks fine but have had reports of a blank white box showing up from several users.

Has anyone else seen this problem? If so, what is the fix?

I am not sure what that can be..but since its code meant to fetch data from flashchat, it may be some color: white; defined in there? Could you post that code bit?

One more question:  Is there any way to change the button order on the top menu?  I want to move the Logout button to after the 3rd user button.  I tried just moving

Code: [Select]
// Otherwise, they might want to [logout]...
        else{
              echo '<td><a href="', $scripturl, '?action=logout;sesc=', $context['session_id'], '">', ($settings['use_image_buttons'] ? '<img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/' . $context['user']['language'] . '/logout.gif" alt="' . $txt[108] . '" style="margin: 0px 0;" border="0" />' : $txt[108]), '</a></td>';
              }

after the third button, but that just caused parse errors.
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios Multi (SMF v1.0.5 / 1.1beta3)

Try to make it like:

// Otherwise, they might want to [logout]...
        if($context['user']['is_logged']){
              echo '<td><a href="', $scripturl, '?action=logout;sesc=', $context['session_id'], '">', ($settings['use_image_buttons'] ? '<img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/' . $context['user']['language'] . '/logout.gif" alt="' . $txt[108] . '" style="margin: 0px 0;" border="0" />' : $txt[108]), '</a></td>';
              }

Its originally part of an IF statement, thats what the "else" is about. But adding the IF again should solve it.

You can take a look at the site and see if the Helios theme is carrying through for you. Like I said its just a few folks that have made mention of it.

This is a browser thing..if you have got the latest version of Helios_multi, just upload the preferred color version into the "pod" folder as well , in addition to the color folders. At least then its getting the files, even if a color is not "set".

ah, by looking at your link I guessing the path where Helios is installed, is the cause. Don't use spaces in the folder for Helios..it will confuse the stylesheet. Exchange it with _ or something, and correct the path in Admin/themes and Settings afterwards.

Err... I have a problem...

Okay, I added kirby's theme changer thing here
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=34453.0

I added this to the bottom:
Code: [Select]
// This neat function finds and returns info about all of our themes.
function getThemeData()
{
global $db_prefix, $user_info, $scripturl, $settings, $options, $modSettings;

$themes = array();

// Get all of our themes.
$request = db_query("
SELECT value, ID_THEME
FROM {$db_prefix}themes
WHERE variable = 'name'
AND ID_THEME != $settings[theme_id]" . (empty($modSettings['theme_default']) ? '
AND ID_THEME != 1' : '') . "
ORDER BY value", __FILE__, __LINE__);
while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($request))
{
$themes[] = array(
'id' => $row['ID_THEME'],
'name' => $row['value'],
);
}
return $themes;
}

and this after the guest login thingy

Code: [Select]
$themes = getThemeData();
        // Super duper theme changer slash! :D
        if (!empty($themes))
{
echo '
<form action="', $scripturl ,'" name="themeForm">
<select name="theme" onchange="if (this.selectedIndex > 0 &amp;&amp; this.options[this.selectedIndex].value) window.location.href = smf_scripturl + \'?theme=\' + this.options[this.selectedIndex].value.substr(smf_scripturl.indexOf(\'?\') == -1 ? 0 : 1);">';

foreach($themes as $theme)
echo '
<option value="', $theme['id'] ,'">' .$theme['name'] . '</option>';

echo '
</select>
<input type="submit" value="Change Themes!" />
</form>';
}

This code works on the default theme. How come on helios it just doesn't display anything. If I take out the ! in the empty function, it just displays a drop down box with nothing in it. HELP! Thx in advance

{
    global $boarddir;
    require ''.$boarddir.'/Themes/themechanger.php';
    }
else
{
$themes = getThemeData();
        // Super duper theme changer slash! :D
        if (!empty($themes))
{
echo '
<form action="', $scripturl ,'" name="themeForm">
<select name="theme" onchange="if (this.selectedIndex > 0 &amp;&amp; this.options[this.selectedIndex].value) window.location.href = smf_scripturl + \'?theme=\' + this.options[this.selectedIndex].value.substr(smf_scripturl.indexOf(\'?\') == -1 ? 0 : 1);">';

foreach($themes as $theme)
echo '
<option value="', $theme['id'] ,'">' .$theme['name'] . '</option>';

echo '
</select>
<input type="submit" value="Change Themes!" />
</form>';
}
}

Just in case that's the problem. That works for default theme too..

while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($request))
{
$themes[] = array(
'id' => $row['ID_THEME'],
'name' => $row['value'],

}
return $themes;
}

I used
Code: [Select]
// This neat function finds and returns info about all of our themes.
function getThemeData()
{
global $db_prefix, $user_info, $scripturl, $settings, $options, $modSettings;

$themes = array();

If you upgraded from 1.0.5 to 1.1RC1 then its bound to have problems. But from 1.1beta3, which Helios_multi11 is meant for, may work better.

I haven't got around to updating yet though - for the RC1 version.

One more thing.  Since I installed SMF 1.1RC1, I get the following error when I click on the "Mark as Read" button:

Code: [Select]
Session verification failed. Please try logging out and back in again, and then try again.
It was suggested that I follow the instructions here (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=50411.0#post_index)  and make changes to the templates.  Since this is your work, I didn't think I should be messing with it.

I started looking through the changes and everything seemed pretty straight forward, until I reached here on the display.template.php.  The instructions say find this:

Code: [Select]
<div align="', !$context['right_to_left'] ? 'right' : 'left', '" style="margin-bottom: 1ex;">
<form action="', $scripturl, '" method="get" name="jumptoForm">;
<span class="smalltext">' . $txt[160] . ':</span>
<select name="jumpto" id="jumpto" onchange="if (this.selectedIndex > 0 &amp;&amp; this.options[this.selectedIndex].value) window.location.href = smf_scripturl + this.options[this.selectedIndex].value.substr(smf_scripturl.indexOf(\'?\') == -1 ? 0 : 1);">

however this is not in the file.  So I thought instead of messing it up, I would let you know of the issue.

This is the slickest theme I have seen and and I have examined a lot of themes.  My only problem is that I have a support group forum.  I fear the black background is a bit inappropriate to the specific forum topic.  Would it offend you if I asked how I may turn the background to a deep dark blue?  I don't want to give this theme up.  If I must, I might try it as is and try to read the reaction.

I commend you for an incredible theme that stands apart from other designs.

Thanks for the invested effort.

All you have to do is change the background color in the styles.css file.  Some of the graphics will need to be made transparent, though.

Bloc,

I know nothing of html so making the graphics transparent is over my head for now.  I may try to brighten it up as I learn a bit.  If I do I am sure it won't look as good as it does now.  I love the actual functionality I wish I could find something even near this slick and functional that was a bit more cheery.  For now I need very  basic answers to two questions:

How do I make a button image to match you buttons.  I want to make 2 buttons to link to other sites.


Also, in the HTML box that places text above the header box, how do I make that text or even and actual link clickable to take me to a site?

If you upgraded from 1.0.5 to 1.1RC1 then its bound to have problems. But from 1.1beta3, which Helios_multi11 is meant for, may work better.

I haven't got around to updating yet though - for the RC1 version.

I did a fresh install of 1.1 added the helios multi 1.1 beta3 and it still has problems . I have attemped to do it manually per the thread that talks about updated the files, some of the stuff it says to search for is not ther ein that theme . The error i get is on this theme and on the techhead theme

error is
Session verification failed. Please try logging out and back in again, and then try again.

whjen i switch back to default theme i dont get that error only on the helios and techead theme and that is after a brand new clean install of smf 1.1 rc so it is definately somthing with the theme, when are your plans to update these?

thanks

I have been useing it for a while now on my web sites forums, however lately i have been trying to add a new forum to it and i keep getting this error in the administration panel

How do I make a button image to match you buttons.  I want to make 2 buttons to link to other sites.


Thanks for enduring a newbie that dare mention changing something on an awsome theme.

Use Bloc's button generator  ;)

Pretty neat I would say.   Your answer and Bloc's design solved the button problem with style.


Does anyone have a example of what I can do with the "Topbar : (use your own HTML code)"   ?

I entered a simple url that gets displayed but I don't know how to make it clickable.

Heres somthing a little screwy.

I'm using the Helios Multi theme and have flash chat intergrated with it. At the bottom of the page, there is a block showing how many usres are in which room. For the bulk of the users on the board I am told that everything looks fine but have had reports of a blank white box showing up from several users.

Has anyone else seen this problem? If so, what is the fix?

Bob

I am not sure what that can be..but since its code meant to fetch data from flashchat, it may be some color: white; defined in there? Could you post that code bit?

Bloc,

Tell me what part of what you would like to see.

You can take a look at the site and see if the Helios theme is carrying through for you. Like I said its just a few folks that have made mention of it.

Here's the link to the board: http://www.computermagiconline.com/yabbse/index.php (http://www.computermagiconline.com/yabbse/index.php)

If I post the code here, or provide a link to the code, would you consider looking at it?

I used the button generator thing which was awesome by the way I was trying to figure out how to get buttons on therel ol  :D

I added the Button information to the Index.template and the buttons are not in the menu there off and to the left.. Its not a big deal the buttons still work fine and dont look bad there but I would like them in the menu bar.

and second if you look at the top of the forum theres two of the colored boarders but there both on the left side. not sure whats going on with that..

Thanks for your help!  :)

*Edit ive noticed the color bar is only missing on the "home" page view of the forum. if your in a board or topic the full color bar goes accross the screen.. Thanks in advance

The fonts? Just the common ones really..verdana or sans-serif, tahoma, courier for the code quotes etc. They should render fine on all browsers.

The buttons are graphics, so they will show the same on all..if that is what you meant. :) Incidentally that font is called axaxax.ttf.

Other than that I don't think there are other mods. Of course you can just go into the template and make the boxes..but a bit hard to update. Unless you just use an included php file. Then you can just update that.

Thanx for quick reply :) I needed that information since some Linux distributions (like Slackware) do not have True Type fonts included.

BTW, I have changed new_none.gif, new_some.gif, off.gif, on.gif, on2.gif and star.gif images. Is that OK with you to still continue using this theme as Helios Multi? (I guess that is ok, but I thought it wouldn'hurt me to ask you, just in case :))

if RC1 is better, why then, in the mods section is there only mods for Beta3?

RC1 is better, because it has many bug fixes(from beta3)and is a "release candidate" - meaning its just one or 2 steps from the final version , which is considered as "stable".

As for the theme...you can use the 1.0.5 version of Helios on versions above that, you can use the 1.1beta3 Helios on 1.1RC1 even, but many things will render errors. Like the mark_read buttons...several javascript routines is changed and so on. So its BEST to use the correct Helios version for whatever SMF version you run.

The modsite will be updated with the choice of RC1 soon - its just a display marker to quickly see what the mod support. Many mods are now made for RC1 and state that in the description instead.

Hey

I just wanted to say I really like this theme.  The gold color really matches our color scheme well at www.scgarrison.net

Anyway- I'm sure this is not the right forum for my question, but if anyone can point me to where I can learn how to remove the "stats" and or the avatar at the top by the user name that would be great!  I don't really like the logged on time, and it makes the top box bigger on some displays.


anyway- thanks again- you theme really stands out from the rest!

I may be blind, but all I can find are the check boxes to turn off ALL of the avatars.  I just want to get rid of mine, or some of the stats at the top.

In other news, is there a simple way to make the news fader box smaller in height?  I found where to do it in index.php and it worked like a charm, but when I swapped out the files, none of the links worked and the (ironically) avatar at the top dissapeared.

thanks again, I just applied the borders around the posts mentioned on page 38 and that is a VERY cool trick!

well- what do you know?

Somehow I managed to bumble my way through editing the code again and got the logged-on stats to disappear AND to get the news box smaller.

a little

/*  ...  */  around the logged-on section got rid of that and I think the top box looks much better now,

and by finding the news fader height in BoardIndex.template.php and changing it to "10" I was able to shrink it considerably.  The thing is- I thought I did this earlier and just ended up with a smaller box followed be a ton of broken links...

I don't know.  Thanks again, though.  Everyone LOVES your theme on our board.

Hey Bloc,

I ran across this today:
(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.deadboneplatoon.com%2Fsmf%2Ferrors%2Fsmferror_01.gif&hash=ec338ef1a4c4e98c3b5fc48329618b31)

As you can see, the other offline icons are there.  The online icon works.  But this one specific icon doesn't.  It isn't a matter of refreshing the page, either.  It looks like buddy_useroff.gif is missing.

Just upload the buddy icon from the smf default theme

BoardIndex.Template.php   Where it says height="10" it used to say "60"  I have no idea how the values in PHP work, so it's feasable that I could have problems later with different news items...

        if ($settings['show_newsfader'] && !empty($context['fader_news_lines']))

                echo '

                        // If days is just zero, don't bother to show it.
                        if ($context['user']['total_time_logged_in']['days'] > 0)
                                echo $context['user']['total_time_logged_in']['days'] . $txt['totalTimeLogged2'];

                echo '<br />

p.s.  PHP seems really touchy about syntax, so make SURE you always have an unmodified copy before you edit!

I can't tell you how many errors I got just by changing or deleting a few characters...

totally wierd- I don't know why that is...





I also adjusted the left margin a little in the Display.template.php file

basically I just changed the 15% and 85% and then the 16% and 85% to 10% and 90% on each of the 2 sets of code below.  Does anyone see any problems arising from these 2 changes?  Or is there anywhere else I might need to change it too?  (look for the arrows)

well, I thought you'd like to know that I have gotten tons of compliments on your theme and someone even said they though it was the best one they've seen on the internet!

anyway, thanks again and after using my "edits" to the code for about a week, I see no real problems except that on smaller displays the avatars have little scroll boxes around them.

I suppose I could fix this be making that poster info box a set pixel width... no to figure out just how to do that....

Thank you. Best on the net..? wow. :)

The avatars gaining scrollbars can be cured...but that will allow the column to expand for big avatars, it may be not what you want perhaps?

btw. love your avatar. 5th element is one of my favourite movies, right up there with Bladerunner and LOTR. ;D

he heee. :)  Thanks, Bloc.  It's one of our favorites too.  I always think mul-teee-pass  in my head when I see that picture.

So if I mod the code to allow for bigger avatars, will that also allow for bigger screen names?  I noticed that long screen names just extend past the margin (into the ether apparantly) in my currently modified version. I already set the size limit of avatars to 75x75 to minimize the effect on my top banner picture.

We are also eagerly awaiting the release of tiny portal!

thanks again,

Yes, it will. in fact, its the value "overflow: hidden;" that makes it like that. take it way, and both avatar and name will show in full.

Any reason why?  The theme seemed to install properly but I can't choose between the different colors and what not?

The toggle functions only work when you're using the theme

The color selector is top right

I sincerely apologize if this has already been brought up. I just went through all 58 pages of this, and after page 30 or so, things started blurring together.

Anyway, the banner for my anime club's forum doesn't fit in the box for the logo. I've since moved it to the header, but it would be quite nice to allow it to be in the box. The other admins think it looks better in there..Except then the user stuff like the avatar gets all bunched up.

Is there a way to wrap that text around? Or should we just make a smaller banner? :)

( Here's an example of what it does- http://jade-angel.net/images/nowraparound.jpg

And off that topic, this is my favorite theme ever. And I've used a lot. :)

Post by: bloc on October 27, 2005, 08:21:42 PM

Unfortunelately its the table used that does this..so you would need to make the banner smaller. Since you are using it on the top now? you could instead render the same metal border around it, that might look better.

Hello, I am a fairly new admin to the SMF forum program, and I must say first that this theme kicks a$$!

I am having trouble trying to find / figure out how to insert my own logo into the top-box (as I have seen others do with some screen-shots). I have looked through a majority of the posts, and I am all confused about what to do. If someone could give me a detailed explanation of how to go about adding my logo, I would be the happiest admin here! Ok...maybe not....but man I would greatly appreciate the knowledge!

was wondering if its possible to change the default theme for the multi? I've been lookin' at the php and can't seem to find the place :\

[now that there's a bar @ the top of the screen rather then uploading the various colors]

uhm, not sure what you mean..changing the default color scheme of Helios?

There are 2 settings in "current theme settings" that will help: setting a default color and setting the chooser on/off.

Ok, I don't know if this has been asked yet, I don't want to search through 59 pages (the search feature is down)...

Will there be any updates for RC1? I would like to use this theme, but it doesn't show the buttons for my arcade  :( .

Helios_multi is made for several versions of SMF, including 1.1RC1..but the one with bulit-in support for arcade is only at 1.0.5.

Then again ist not difficult to copy over the 2 things to a 1.1RC1 that the arcade mod needs: look after "arcade" in index.template.php and Display.template.php. Then just copy over those 2 code-blocks to the RC1 version in the same spots.

Awesome, thanks. Sounds easy enough. Also, is there a way to set the blue as the default instead of the brown?

Ok, I've looked into the scripts. Is it just the following?

Display.template.php:

Quote
if(@is_array($context['arcade']['champions'][ $message['member']['id'] ])){
                            foreach($context['arcade']['champions'][ $message['member']['id'] ] as $tmp){
                                //print_r($tmp);
                                if($tmp['thumbnail'] != ''){
                                     echo '
                                                                <img src="', $tmp['thumbnail'], '" alt="" width="20">',$tmp['name'],' ', $txt['arcade_136'],'<br />';
                                }
                                else
                                    echo '
                                                                ', $tmp['name'], ' ', $txt['arcade_136'],'<br />';
                            }
                        }

Index.template.php:

Quote
// arcade?
        if(isset($modSettings['arcade_version']))
                echo '<td><a href="', $scripturl, '?action=arcade"><img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/' . $context['user']['language'] . '/games.gif" alt="' . "Arcade" . '" style="margin:  0;" border="0" /></a></td>';


That's what I copied, but the button isn't showing up.
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios Multi (SMF v1.0.5 - 1.1RC1)
Post by: bloc on November 12, 2005, 07:48:43 PM
it needs a button called games.gif placed in images/english folder(for example), do you have that?

The blue version can be permanent by going to "admin / current theme settings" and setting blue as "default" and turning color chooser "off".
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios Multi (SMF v1.0.5 - 1.1RC1)
Post by: draysniro on November 12, 2005, 09:38:26 PM
Yes, I uploaded the image.

Also, I added a little background image to it so it would fit my site better. The blue could be a little brighter to match, but I like the look.  I think it looks good, but the black around the template images kinda ruins it for me. I dunno, take a look and tell me what you think.  DRAYSNIRO (http://DRAYSNIRO)


***UPDATE***

Ok, I've been messing around and searching the files. I thought I had found a problem in the index.template.php file, but I guess I was wrong. I edited the line for the arcade, but it still doesn't work. Here's what it looked like:

Quote
// arcade?
        if(isset($modSettings['arcade_version']))
                echo '<td><a href="', $scripturl, '?action=arcade"><img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/' . $context['user']['language'] . '/games.gif" alt="' . "Arcade" . '" style="margin:  0;" border="0" /></a></td>';



Here's what it looks like now:

Quote
// arcade?
        if(isset($modSettings['arcade_version']))
                echo '<td><a href="', $scripturl, '?action=arcade">', ($settings['use_image_buttons'] ? '<img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/' . $context['user']['language'] . '/games.gif" alt="' . $txt['Arcade'] . '" style="margin: 0px 0;" border="0" />' : $txt['Arcade']), '</a></td>';

I thought that making it match the other button codes, it would work. As of now, I am completely lost. I don't know what is wrong with it. I have started from scratch with editing and have re-uploaded the image with no success.

I apologize if my questions are getting annoying. I'm teaching my self php and it's frustrating when I can't find what I'm looking for.  >:(

The button doesn't show still? Try to remove the line that says:

Code: [Select]

Its supposed to check if arcade is present by checking one of its variables..but I guess  those have changed or something. ;)

I just want to use the green one, is there any way I can download just the GREEN one? :)

Thankyou.

Ah..saw your other post first now..yes, you can. Well, not JUST download the green version, but once downloaded the full theme and installed it, go into "admin / current theme settings" and sett "default color" to "green". And finally set "color-chooser" to "off".

That will make it use only the green color.

I have a quick question about the logo. In the setting for logo URL, I set it so that clicking it will return you to the main site home page. The problem is that, it will work one time then it will go back to linking to the forum index. How do I get it to stay the same? (When I go to the settings, it still says it's linked to my home page)

I am bit unsure what you mean...is it the "logo" or the "topbar" you are reffering to?

Try to find template_menu(); and try to add the code under there. You will need to echo it.

        menu sub template, which appropriately displays the menu; the init sub
        template, which is there to set the theme up; (init can be missing.) and
        the linktree sub template, which sorts out the link tree.

        It should probably contain the copyright statement and some other things.

Try inserting the echoed code like you did :), but right after this line instead:
Code: [Select]
// The main content should go here.  A table is used because IE 6 just can't handle a div.
Then it should show up.

Beautiful theme.
Congrats.

There is a compatibility problem though with the colors in the calendar.

The forum is all dark so the CSS codes all "links" colors to be very light.
No prob with that.

But in the calendar, the current day is highlighted in "sky blue" making it impossible to read the events which are all links.

I could not find a way to either edit the current day background, or set a specific color for the calendar links.

Can you help ?
I beleive a dark background fo courrent day would do the trick.

Thanks

Its mentioned before..but basically you need to copy over Calendar.template from default theme and then adjust that. I believe its located at:

Code: [Select]
// If this is today, make it a different color and show a border.
echo '
<td class="windowbg" valign="top" style="', $day['is_today'] ? 'height: 96px; border: 2px outset; background-color: #C1E5FF;' : 'height: 100px;', ' padding: 2px;">';

And just change the #C1E5FF to something darker. ;)

Hi Bloc - First, I must say that your skills in all this are amazing.  I've been impressed with your work with SMF and TP for quite while now.

Here's my issue:  Previously I was running SMF 1.0.5, without TP installed.  I've got several of your themes installed, and all of them working correctly, with the exception of one.  Helios, for quite a while, worked fine. I had multiple versions of it installed, for the different colors.  Not too long ago, my favorite, Helios_Red, lost it's header, or topbar, whichever you'd prefer to call it.  The other versions/colors remained the same and had no issues.

Now, I'm still running SMF 1.0.5, but I've upgraded to TP, removed the old versions of Helios and other themes, and installed the new TP compatible version of Helios_multi.  The topbar/header is still missing.  Is there something that I'm missing here?  Is there a checkbox or setting that I may have inadvertantly changed to show/hide the topbar/header or is this a deeper problem? 

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks a bunch..
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios Multi (SMF v1.0.5 - 1.1RC1)
Post by: bloc on December 17, 2005, 12:44:19 PM
Thank you. :)

The topbar is left out in TP version..because of the portals "topbar" (not implemented yet). But you can easily add the code to show the topbar again, also in TP.

Is it the Helios_multi_tp version you have installed? ...not any 11 or 11rc1 behind it?
Title: Re: [Theme] Helios Multi (SMF v1.0.5 - 1.1RC1)
Post by: jackjr on December 18, 2005, 08:23:11 AM
It is the Helios_multi_tp version that I have installled.  And no, there's no 11 or 11rc1 code on my board just yet.  I've considered upgrading, but everything seems to be running just fine with the version I'm running, so I'm not exactly 'running to the gate' to get the latest rc1 version installed.

Would I be adding code to the BoardIndex.template.php file?

I really do appreciate your assistance in this..

If its bigger it will probably break the "bar" it reside in..how about making a bigger logo/name on top instead? The "topbar" option allow you to put any html there.

Bloc...this theme is awesome...I have the Visual Warning v1.27 mod installed and your theme installed great...but I have a couple quick questions:

First...any idea why my home page looks like this?

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg7.picsplace.to%2Fimg7%2F5%2Fcut_home_page_helios__Custom_.jpg&hash=0f615443155e18aee25922bf94948908)

Second...how did you add on all of the stuff in the boxes seen on the left?

That looks great and if it's not too difficult, I would like to do something similar on my site.!

And thanks so much for the premod version, the multi-color choosing, and especially the button generator! I used a gif morph program and I have made several of my most needed buttons that are most frequently used even have blinking icons!

Your theme made setting up my site with SMF v1.05 as a novice to all of this a great experience!

You rock dude!

Keep up the great work!

Post by: Kindred on January 09, 2006, 08:26:47 AM
Bloc,

I am using the helios multi theme wrapped with joomla.
Because of this, I ended up remving all the newsbox, etc info at the top of the index.template.php.

In order to make it fit in, I moved the colour boxes FORM into the linktree graphic bar (in boardindex.template.php)

The other theme_colour code, I moved into the <head> section of my overall joomla template...

Code: [Select]
if(!$context['user']['is_guest'] && isset($_POST['options']['theme_color']))
{
   include_once($GLOBALS['sourcedir'] . '/Profile.php');
   makeThemeChanges($context['user']['id'], $settings['theme_id']);
   $options['theme_color'] = $_POST['options']['theme_color'];
}
else if ($context['user']['is_guest'])
{
   if (isset($_POST['options']['theme_color']))
   {
      $_SESSION['theme_color'] = $_POST['options']['theme_color'];
      $options['theme_color'] = $_SESSION['theme_color'];
   }
   elseif (isset($_SESSION['theme_color']))
      $options['theme_color'] = $_SESSION['theme_color'];
}
if (isset($options['theme_color']))
   $mycolor = $options['theme_color'];
else {
   // Defaults.
   $options['theme_color'] = isset($settings['default_theme_color']) ? $settings['default_theme_color'] : 'brown';
   $mycolor=$options['theme_color'];
}

if(isset($settings['color_change_off']) && $settings['color_change_off']==1)
  $options['theme_color'] = isset($settings['default_theme_color']) ? $settings['default_theme_color'] : 'brown';


Now, however, I get 8: Undefined index: theme_color errors on EVERY page except boardindex.

I believe these errors ar eonly coming from users who have NOT selected a colour at least once, which (to me) seems to indicate that the default colour choice is not being set somewhere.   Any suggestions?

You can't do it by using the "topbar", if thats what you meant. Rather you need to insert the code(which is explained in the mod's help text) into index.template.php.

Hi Bloc,

I have a slight problem, nothing to major but if there is a way to solve it that would be great.

Hi Bloc,

I have a slight problem, nothing to major but if there is a way to solve it that would be great.

You need to supply a <table><tr> before calling the ssi menu, and a </tr></table> after it. The menu only render <td>button></td>. That might explain the misalignment.

Open BoardIndex.template and search for "info center". You get that line in a comment a bit down..all underneath there could then be removed.

I had a few snags installing new themes in RC2. I found that re-uploading the files via ftp a couple of times did the trick.

and somehow Helios looks cooler in RC2 than it did in v. 1.0.5

maybe I'm just imagining things?

No you're right. In fact it even looks better from RC1 to RC2 but that's an SMF thing, they changed the layout a little

From searching I saw that it was like 380 of the theme's index.php file, which is located in this section:

Code: [Select]

echo '<pre>';
print_r($actionArray);
echo '</pre>';
        echo '

The actual line 380 is this one:
print_r($actionArray);

What can be done to fix this?

Okay..I just installed this theme on another board of mine. Soon after installation I began to get "Sorry, unable to connect to the database, it might be busy"...that one. Ick. After a few refreshes it works fine again, but I checked the repair thing.

This is what it said, with Helios as the theme-
http://www.jade-angel.net/images/oookay.png

I use 1.0.5. I downloaded the one that said 1.0.5.

..So is it an issue with the theme (as my trouble didn't start until I installed it) or am I just unlucky?

Hm..it could seem there are some trouble with the 1.0.5 version. But the theme should not have any impact on the database as such. have you tried other themes to compare?

The version numbers you see makes no real difference, its just me not having updated those. The code itself IS 1.0.5 code.

 I've run into a small snafu with the Helios pre mod running on 1.0.5 of SMF in that the the 'Users viewing this board' section if I have more than 6 or more users it skews the forum and makes it so that you have to scroll in order to see the entire forum. Is there a way to force the 'Users viewing this board' area to a fixed width and force a wrap arround of the names?

Any tips or slaps up side the head would be appreciated.

Thanks

Bloc, great theme. One question though.

I'm using this theme for one specific topic of my whole board, which you will see in "Keirans Kustom of the day" board.  The problem I have is that one some one would change a color, it will just go back to the index page of the whole board, rather then just back to the forum topic that uses the theme.

I just need to know what file I need to edit to fix this for my site, othewise I'll just use the one color. Thanks for all the hard work. Themes like this are what make this software so cool!

Thats right. 1.0.5 themes work fine on 1.0.6.

loudog, I never implemented remembering where you were when you change colors, but this code:
Code: [Select]
      echo '
      <form action="', $scripturl, '" style="text-align: right; margin-right: 30px; margin-bottom: 2px; margin-top: 2px;" method="post" class="smalltext">

Needs perhaps to be something like:
Code: [Select]
     $querystring=$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];

      echo '
      <form action="', $scripturl, '?' , $querystring , '" style="text-align: right; margin-right: 30px; margin-bottom: 2px; margin-top: 2px;" method="post" class="smalltext">

I haven't tested it though.

Changing the theme won't help I am afraid - if the forum doesn't work in MKPortal in the first place. I suspect it has something to do with the new patches in 1.0.6 that deals with database/php. The theme system is exactly the same in 1.0.5 and 1.0.6.

Have you edited the subs.php file in your forums sources folder as per the instructions that come with MKPortal?  Your original edited subs.php file would have been overwritten by the new one when you updated to 1.0.6.  I just installed SMF 1.0.6 with MKPortal 1.0 on my local test server and it all works fine.

I a newbie (installed two days ago) at SMF (but love it so far www.oldhippie.com/forums)  -- but have a lot of experience with vBulletin (www.moparstyle.com) and phpBB (Hacker's Highway!).

I'd like this theme and would like to install it -- but want to verify that I won't have problems installing the .05 version of this theme in .06 -- and verify how I install the theme.

Download and unzip
FTP to a new directory in my themes directory
Admin, Install theme, and browse to it
anything else?

I'm hoping to avoid going through 65 pages of figuring out the answers -- if someone can roll me a bone.

Thanx

Hey really like the theme.....very nice flow to it.....like the dark side to it and multible color picker.  Just what I was looking for. 

I got a question and dont know if it should be asked here....but here it goes.  Where the news box set under the logo box (not the fader box) what code would I change to shorten it up and center it?  I want to place a shout box next to it also just trying to figure how to place it in and what code to replace.  Thanks if anyone can point me in the right direction.

Thank for your fast responce.  I am looking for where I need to replace the information.  in the mod for the shout box looks like this.

Example:
If you want to add the shoutbox to the LEFT of your web page, you could make the following change in index.template.php.
Find:
Code: [Select]
<table width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr>
<td id="bodyarea" style="padding: 1ex 20px 2ex 20px;">';

and replace with:
Code: [Select]
<table width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr valign="top">
<td width="120">', smfshout(), '</td>
<td id="bodyarea" style="padding: 1ex 20px 2ex 20px;">';

I dont know what area to replace or what text to paste in....sorry I am very new at this and dont want to mess it up.

You said you were going to work up a patch and the necessary files and instructions when you got a chance.

Any progress on this yet?

I just thought I would check in to see...

I would really like to put TP on my site...and your pre-mod version sure makes modding and installation easier...thanks again!

Ok, guys im using SMF 1.0.5

but when I go into the Theme & Layout Settings

there is a section called Install a New Theme
yet above it, it says this: Warning - you cannot create or install a new theme as your themes directory is not currently writable!

1)What should I upload?
- the zip file or do i extract the files and upload the folder in which i extracted the files to the directory /_themes/ in the server
2) How do I install it?
- How do I install it when it displays that warning...

P.S. Great skin...I would really like to have it

Thanks,
Manwho

You need to chmod the folder to 777 to allow themes to be uploaded via smf.

Helios theme are NOT to be installed through package manager. Rather you use the "themes and settings" / "install new theme".

The "logo" option is not used actually..rather you can use the "topbar" option, in where you write the html code for a logo instead. if you need some pointers there, just ask. :)

I am planning to use the topbar function (which I tried and is working perfectly) but if the logo would work my forum would look way better cause that blank black space gets covered up.

Have a nice day.

Edit: Is there a way to use the topbar to display data in that black area towards the top-right of the screen?

Edit 2: I ventured onto your website and I dont think i need anything else now, thanks a lot  :D

Shout box mod in helos

Example:
If you want to add the shoutbox to the LEFT of your web page, you could make the following change in index.template.php.
Find:

Code:
<table width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr>
<td id="bodyarea" style="padding: 1ex 20px 2ex 20px;">';

and replace with:

Code:
<table width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr valign="top">
<td width="120">', smfshout(), '</td>
<td id="bodyarea" style="padding: 1ex 20px 2ex 20px;">';

I dont know what area to replace or what text to paste in....sorry I am very new at this and dont want to mess it up.

The code in the index.template.php does not have files that say this.......I dont know what to replace and have messed up my board everytime.  I am two weeks into figuring this out really could use some help.

Open Helios's index.template and find this:
Code: [Select]
        // The main content should go here.  A table is used because IE 6 just can't handle a div.
        echo '
        <table style="margin-top: 4px;" width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr>';
         echo '<td align="left" id="bodyarea" style="padding-left: 3px; padding-right: 8px; padding-top: 0px; padding-bottom: 10px;">';

...replace that with this:
Code: [Select]
        // The main content should go here.  A table is used because IE 6 just can't handle a div.
        echo '
        <table style="margin-top: 4px;" width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr>';
       echo '<td width="120" valign="top">' , smfshout() , '</td>';

Bloc I gotta say I am very happy with this theme and do not want to use another...

However one issue I am having, and one that may have been addressed some where along the 69 pages of posts here...

My total post count on the board index is not adding in the posts from the child boards.

A couple of the boards have multiple child boards and none of these totals appeared on the forum index. I tried to do what was suggested to me from another thread about this and it caused an error. Since I was already having permission problems I simply erased the first SMF instalation and started over again.

Now since you designed this Theme I figure you would be of super help to assist me in solving this issue.

Title: Re: [Theme] Helios Multi (SMF v1.0.5 - 1.1RC2)
Post by: bloc on March 03, 2006, 04:51:46 AM
Its actually a setting in the admin section of SMF, not in the theme. Try "admin / boards / settings / Count child's posts in parent's totals".

This is for SMF1.1.x however, its not present in the 1.0.x.

When I tried to do that I messed up something royaly and the forum crashed indefinately.

Post by: bloc on March 04, 2006, 03:58:11 AM
It would seem it just displays in the template the topics and posts number for each child board too..nice. :)

the reason you can't find the code there is probably because Helios has a slightly different BaordIndex.template..but its quite possible to find the code anyway.

But...is displaying the posts/topics next to each childboard really what you want? In SMF1.1 its rather calculated into the parent board number of topics/posts - which is more logical? I think also can be done in the template - with a bit of code change. ;)

OK sorry Bloc, I am a bit lost so bare with me..

What I meant is when a member posts in one of the child boards the post/topic count, from the child board itself does not add into or appear with the post/topic count on the board index.

It seems as if there is a "glitch" in it somewhere because sometimes the title of the post will appear on the index as the last post, then other times it will not.

http://mnrat.com/boards/index.php (http://mnrat.com/boards/index.php)

If you look there you will see I have some forums with multiple child boards, in which none of the topic/post counts are appearing on the board index.


Bloc I understand you may be a busy person, but I honestly do not feel comfortable making these code changes that may be needed. I messed up once and lost everything. If you would be willing to help me out I would appreciate it.

If its exists a spoiler mod, most likley they will change something in the source files..if they are meant to work on 1.1RC2 for example, the Helios version will also work fine with them.

It seems it adjusts the Display.template...you can mod Helios Display.template with that too, but since many users will not use that mod, it won't be a default feature in Helios, no.

It sounds like your trouble is due to wrong versions of Helios. .are you sure you use the correct version? There is different versions for SMF, but also TP versions of the same SMF versions. basically a TP version is just a SMF version with added calls to the portal functions. otherwise the theme is the same.

I've had a few problems since upgrading and wondered if you might be able to help me understand what's going on.  Helios has been my default template for the past 18 months or so, but I had to upgrade to Multi when I updated the forum software to 1.1 RC2.  After installation, the header and footer sub templates don't show up on the index screen, the spellcheck no longer works and there are several other bits and pieces that don't work.  I had some trouble during the upgrade of both the forum software and the theme - the host kept cutting the connection to SmartFtp.

What I'm wondering is whether Helios Multi calls templates from other directories to function, such as Babylon, for instance, or is it completely self contained?  I suppose what I'm asking is, which templates do you think are corrupt/missing and need replacing, and where are they?  Any ideas gratefully accepted.

Thanks :)

Any templates inside Helios is changed versions of the same files inside default theme. So any "wrong" ones should first be checked in Helios, then default. Its only a few that Helios actually change though, the largest number is still in default - which Helios fallback on.

Thanks for the info, Bloc.  I changed a load of the tepmlates in 'default' and that cured a lot of the problems, but I still have the problem of the forum banner appearing in the middle of the wrong box :-\

Any idea what's causing this, please?

You need to add the code manually in BoardIndex.template.php. Check the mod docs for what code is needed.

Post by: bloc on April 21, 2006, 07:53:13 PM
You need to open index.template.php and find this line:
Code: [Select]
        // How about the [search] button?

then, before that line, insert something like:
Code: [Select]
                echo '<td><a href="YOUR_LINK">', ($settings['use_image_buttons'] ? '<img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/NAME_OF_IMAGE_FILE" alt="JUST_THE_NAME" style="margin: 0px 0;" border="0" />' : 'JUST_THE_NAME'), '</a></td>';

Just insert the things in uppercase with your actual button info. And if you need more buttons just re-use that code bit as many times you need. Beware that space might be tight though, since it will NOT wrap - its a table with just columns after all. :)

Hello Bloc!

I really love this theme. Thanks a lot for your work.

The only problem that I've got with it is that my users (and I) are unable easely distingish to recognize links in the articles as the colors and style isn't that different from normal text. An example would be a text where it says "Here you can find the newest videos" and only the word "here" is linked to another site.

Do you have a tip what change might make sense? I already thought of changing the links's css styles to bold but I don't want to lose the function in the mains sheme where linked titles of sub-forums with new articles are set in bold and the others in normal.

Thanks a lot,
Sven

Try to open style.css and change the color defined in a:link, a:visited and a:hover. The first is all links, second links you been to, and third hovering over them.

Well yes, I know that, thanks. The problem is that I don't really have an idea of what changes look good as design isn't my favour. And I thought that if you think that other link colors and/or style would look better it would have been integrated in the basic theme so that I just would need to use future versions and others would profit of it as well.

I am afraid there is no easy way to convert exisiting data - you will need to copy over every article etc. manually.

Once TP has reached 1.0 and having more modules I will see if converters can be made. Until then, its only possible manually.

I have added a custom logo that is 175 pixels high. This causes the avatar and the stats to the left of it to start too low. What do I need to change in the index.template to make it start at the same height as the logo no matter the size? Here is a screen cap to show what I mean.

Thanks.

Hey Bloc, great theme as everyone has mentioned.  I've read through the first 10 pages or so, and I'm having a hard time seeing at this point, switching between tabbed websites messing with my forum all the while http://forum.mirrorstonemusic.com  I noticed a couple of sites that have the menu bar left justified and I would like to do the same.  One thing I notice is that the header shrinker icon is different in my version 05.02.2006 vs the other sites I have visited, maybe an older version?  Can this be adjusted in the index template file?  Sorry if it's been posted earlier in the thread, great reading though!

Yes, it was changed to just a button like the rest. Moving over to left should be easy though, just find this in index.template.php:

Code: [Select]
echo '<td style="width: 39%; background-color: black;">and change to:
Code: [Select]
echo '<td style="background-color: black;">
That should move it left I assume. Let me know if it works.

That certainly did it, and that was the area in the index that I was looking to make changes, just wasn't sure what the changes consisted of.  Thanks a million, just a small preference.  I noticed earlier in the post that some people were having a hard time finding the font you used to make buttons for the menu, are you still doing custom ones?  I need "Mirrorstone Home" (without quotes), "Tour Dates", "Discography" and "Contact".  I may have more later, still under development.

Installed TinyPortal so it looks better centered now, but nice to know how to move it around.  TP rocks BTW.  I've been messing with forum software since about 2001, and it was of course, phpBB back then.  I installed the first version of SMF when it came out as well.  I'm running a site now that supports cPanel and Fantastico, it's very kewl how easy they've made it to get SMF up and running.  My hosting company only supports 1.07 however, so I had to go back and do it the old fashioned way to get the board itself up and running, but loving all the new features!

This is by far, the best template that I've ever seen. Only one question, how do you get those extra side bars on your left? Would that be a mod, and if so, which one?

www.tinyportal.com  It has a menu on the right as well, I just chose to hide it.  It turns your forum into a functional website as well.  Pretty sweet deal and very customizable.  One word of caution, I had to tear down SMF 1.07, since I had a lot of trouble getting TP up and running on it, it's possible, but it was easier to simply rip it out and start fresh with 1.1RC2.  If you use TP, and are planning on using Helios Multi, make sure to use the TP version of Helios over the SMF Helios.  It's all on their download site.  Also, you need to sign up for the forum on TP's site in order to see all the downloads available.  TP also supports other themes as well.  Have fun with it, I am!

If you uploaded via FTP, you still need to install it.  Go into administration, themes and layout.  Give it the path to your theme and install it.  You can also upload the zipped theme and install that way too.

While I am considering to upgrade from Helios 1.1 to 1.1rc2 finally, I had hopes that an old problem would have finally been fixed - but it hasn't. Which leads me to the possibility that it might be a mistake on my side.

Following scenario:

I am using helios-german and all checkboxes are severely screwed, as in not having an kind of background or anything. I changed back to english for the snapshot, so you get an idea where it comes from. The problem persists with both the old helios and helios1.1rc2

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.runschke.de%2Ffiles%2Fhelios_multi_checkboxproblem.jpg&hash=bd35115086e8bab179ac4be7d9b563d9)

As you can see it is rather hard to pin down the actual location of the checkboxes. If I remember correctly this problem popped up when I switched from Apache1.3 to Apache2.0 a few months ago. Ever since that I wasn't able to fix it, without making manual changes to the css - but I am not really into that css stuff ;)

Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I'm using Opera 8.54 and since it seems you suspected it to be a browser issue, I tried IE6 and it showed perfect results for the checkboxes - white background with shades at the border it seemed.

Would it be possible for you to check into the reasons why Opera isn't displaying it properly? Maybe IE6 isn't interpreting the CSS like it should, but corrects some kind of missing definition by itself - making it unnoticable for IE users. I really wouldn't make me wonder... as I usually expect Opera to show the real results and IE just making use of some proprietary definitions noone else uses in that way.

Does anyone have this image that I can copy and upload?  For some reason its not in the 1.1 RC1 nor the upgraded version unless I missed it.

Much appreciated, and looove this template.  I've been using it for ages now and its the best IMO.   ;D

Just installed SMF via auto-installer & then auto-updated leaving me with SMF 1.07

I want THIS theme! It's perfect. Problem is I see a 1.06 version & a 1.1RC version.

Can I use this theme on 1.07 totally safely?

(not willing to make any modifications to theme or that manual upgrade of the forum to 1.1RC version).

(not willing to make any modifications to theme or that manual upgrade of the forum to 1.1RC version).

I did the same thing Arma, and it worked fine.  The thing that I found was that when I wanted to start using Tiny Portal, they didn't have a 1.07 TP theme, so I went ahead and upgraded to 1.1RC.  Actually there are a few more features in 1.1RC, not that I can name them off the top of my head, but it went smoothly.  I was even able to maintain all the posts and members without much trouble, but make sure to back up your MySQL database if you decide to undertake that route.  Just my 2 cents  ;)

Just noticed, you used an auto-installer.  Did you use Fantastico, or something similar?  It's not hard at all to set the board up by hand either, by the way, all you have to do is upload the unzipped files and use the PHP installer, like http://www.mycompany.com/forum/install.php.  Make sure to delete the install.php file once you're done, that is, if you decide to go that route.  I may be completely wrong about this as well, so please correct me if I'm wrong Bloc, just saying that this was my experience, and what I did to work around it.

I think I'm having a problem related to this. Total Time Logged in stopped increasing and I have feeling there are other problems happening. The only modification to my SMF 1.07 board is Helios Multi 1.06 d/led from the theme page after you guys said it should be fine. This template thing is the only discrepency I could see:

SMF File / Your Version / Current Version
Current Templates / 1.0.1 / 1.0.4
Profile.template.php / 1.0.1 / 1.0.4

Any ideas?

Hi Bloc.

I'm using the helios_multi theme on my board and my members and i really like it a lot. i am having a small problem however. the red and silver versions seem to be missing some graphics or something. all other colors work fine, but when i switch to red or silver much of the board graphics are missing, with only "gfx" tags in their place. i read through this board and didn't notice anyone else having the this problem. i didn't knowif you have a fix for this or if u know what i can do to fix it myself. btw, my board version is 1.1RC2 and i did install the RC2 version of the theme. thanks.

Hey, bloc, I use this theme and I love it. Best I have found by far. I have a slight problem. I make little modifications to files all the time just to sort of tweak it out to my specifications so to speak and may have messed up a setting somewhere. Anyway, in my MessageIndex.template.php file there is a spot that by default calls for titlegb in this area in the first picture. But notice also there is a problem with the link itself:

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg374.imageshack.us%2Fimg374%2F7830%2Fscreencap185uh1.jpg&hash=a3e16ce17b42cfb50afb2af61ef7279f)

I never could figure out how to fix it so I just switched it to catbg2 which doesn't have the problem with the link area. See below.

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg20.imageshack.us%2Fimg20%2F331%2Fscreencap186bf6.jpg&hash=d4fe35fbe47a305e12d94a0d2c3db503)

I checked your demo site and it didn't have this problem either so it must have been me. Any idea what I need to change to remove that part behind the link?

I am having an issue on RC3, which seems to apply to all of my themes, not just my forum default, which happens to be Helios Multi. My users cannot change avatars. The whole upload process seems to go smoothly, but there is no change to the av. It has been suggested that I re-upload EVERYTHING on the site....there has got to be a better way - I hope. Any suggestions? I first noticed this error within Helios, and some of the other themes have the action working properly...which has me a bit confused, since I imagine that a global error would effect all themes....

Very well made theme Bloc, lovin the red version of Helios. I used to make themes for phpBB, my themes were merely graphical manipulatons of their existing base theme mind, but I have lost faith in that software and am going to look at contributing to SMF by way of themes, if I can.
Could you tell me what I should do about the link at the bottom of the Helios theme being a dead link?
Do you have a new website URL I can replace the dead link with or should I simply change the link to send people here?
Keep up the superb work Bloc, most impressed by your work, if you're curios you can view my phpBB efforts here:

Most beautiful dark theme I have found! You can also load a header without being a coding genius. I have it up on 2 sites now but I have a problem.

The buttons won't show up. Just get the frame and the little X in the corner. I am a total noob and don't know where to try to fix it at. I do have my own CPanel and file manager so I can get in and fix something if I had a clue what and where. This is the latest version of SMF and I am using the _multi version.

Been going through this forum but it is almost 2AM and there are a zillion pages. Any help appreciated.

I think the error was that one, as I don't have Tportal.
