Title: [Theme] Matrix for SMF 1.0x
Post by: forsakenlad on April 22, 2005, 04:42:56 PM
I would like to present you my first try on theme creation: Matrix Theme for SMF. It's a classical Matrix theme, green on black. It has the news fader placed on top right (the fade time can be set in the admin panel). I would like to thank A.M.A and Alperuzi for their ideas. Here it is:

Download:

http://turkish.doom9.org/smf/matrix.tar.gz
http://turkish.doom9.org/smf/matrixfont.zip (The Font Used In The Logo)

Demo:

http://forum.turkish.doom9.org/index.php?theme=6;language=english

Samples:


Mods:

Experience Bar for Matrix - click here (http://www.oi-forums.com/files/MatrixExperienceBar.zip) (Thanks to OIDanTheManIO)

Notes:

1. Turkish buttons are coming soon...
2. There has to be more than one news item for the fader to work...
3. If you don't like the animated new post icon (https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fforum.turkish.doom9.org%2FThemes%2FMatrix%2Fimages%2Fon.gif&hash=43f7f957b4518345634d7c7bd93f1d72) (on.gif) you can replace it with this: (https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fforum.turkish.doom9.org%2FThemes%2FMatrix%2Fimages%2Fon2.gif&hash=82ef4ddd917ec3cedf05103e1a853ca2) (on2.gif)...
4. The buttons are derived versions of the default buttons... (thanks babylonking)

Great theme :)
but if you matrix-ize the icons of topics, it would be perfect ;)

Elegant theme! I like this combination of black and green, it gives a very good contrast and makes it easy to read.

// Show a random news item? (or you could pick one from news_lines...)

        // Prepare all the javascript settings.



echo '

To make this part go into a place you want all you have to do is to copy and paste this code somewhere in the index.template.

anyway you can post the psd files i need an icon that says chat and also i want to be able to change the smf  name to my own

I don't have PSD files for the buttons. They are edited versions of the default ones if you can post here the chat button I can matrixize it. And about the logo, all you have to do is to delete the text and enter your own. I have added the font to the first post....

@charlottezweb

Thank you :) Glad that you have liked it...

I was personally going to create a matrix theme myself, although this is a great starting base i could use.
Would it be ok if i enhance it, create new buttons, header, etc?
I will relese it to the public when done, and ofcourse, credit will be given. :)

Yes of course, you can do whatever you want with it as long as the created content is used for SMF, and credit is given ;)

I'm sorry it took so long.  I ran into a lot of problems with this mod.  Here are the instructions as well as a link to the updated file.

1) Copy Display.template.php over from Themes/default/ and put it in Themes/matrix/.
2) Copy Modifications.[language].php over from Themes/default/languages/ and put it in Themes/matrix/languages/.
3) Download the Bar of Experience Bar for the Matrix Theme (http://www.oi-forums.com/files/MatrixExperienceBar.zip).
4) Go into Admin > Edit Features and Options > Layout and Options and check the box next to "Enable The Bar of Experience".

Enjoy :).

You get the precentage, you see the bar show up when its loading. But there is no bar when the page is done loading.
