Title: Ostara

The word Ostara is just one of the names applied to the celebration of the spring equinox on March 21. The Venerable Bede said the origin of the word is actually from Eostre, a Germanic goddess of spring. Of course, it's also the same time as the Christian Easter celebration, and in the Jewish faith, Passover takes place as well. For early Pagans in the Germanic countries, this was a time to celebrate planting and the new crop season. Typically, the Celtic peoples did not celebrate Ostara as a holiday, although they were in tune with the changing of the seasons.

So lets celebrate the sabbat to bring in spring with style on your forum.

Hi,
Is there a way to change the background pic to other pics for other occasions?

index.css look for

Code: [Select]
background: #98c3fe url(../images/theme/backdrop.jpg) no-repeat;

and change the url (the bits inside the brackets) to where your image is ... also change the color #98c3fe to what color you want

Wow you are fast!!! Thanks so much!!!
I actually already jet went to where the image was and replaced it with another...
Is there a way to make that image static though? It seems it would be in that line of code where it says no-repeat to something else?

Title: Ostara & SMF Media
Post by: dsantana on August 09, 2011, 04:26:32 PM
The Ostara theme is not letting SMF media thumbnails be visible.
If I change to the default them it is good.
What needs to change to fix this please?

its not the design, there is nothing in the design that would effect this, this is more something you need to ask the mod authors.

When I switch from Ostara to Curve I can preview the images in thumbnails.
When I switch back to Ostara I can't preview thumbnails, you say that is not in the theme?
Title: Re: Ostara
Post by: Deaks on August 09, 2011, 06:10:29 PM
yes I say its not the theme, why simple the theme is based on curve, there is no coding nor reason for the mod not to display on the theme, unless the mod could not make necessary changes to a file in the theme.   But as I said there is no coding or anything that would prevent the mod working.  Why not post link of the mod :)

Hi! I am using this theme, and I had a question about the transparency for the index page. The view/topic count cell appear to be solid while I am able to get the remaining cells transparent.

I tried to get that cell to be transparent as well by removing the image from the windowbg code, but while it does make the front index page transparent, it removes the background completely from all the other pages. Is it possible to just edit the front page to make that transparent without effecting the rest of the forum? Thank you.

you would need to alter thje code in boardindex.template and create a new class for it as this theme does not have a boardindex.template.php you would have to make a copy from the default theme folder and place it in the ostara directory, if you want further assistance please do what I suggested above and then attach the boardindex.template.php and iondex.css

Okay, I made a copy and put it in the same folder. What will I need to do next?

Not being actively updated still should work for SMF 2.0.x

Post by: Krivich26rus on December 09, 2015, 11:51:34 PM
SMF works on 2.0.11. The problem with the design of the theme - can't change color. Sorry, I use translator Yandex.

Good afternoon!
Mr. Deakin! I hope you can briefly pull on creativity?  :) I really like the theme of Ostara. Perhaps in the future I will be ready to buy it. In the meantime, I want to learn a few questions:

- why when the mouse cursor on the "search" it becomes very dark?

(http://s017.radikal.ru/i428/1512/7f/28ba47f7e9dd.jpg)

- why when you hover the mouse cursor over the button "send" and "preview" it becomes very dark?

(http://s018.radikal.ru/i510/1512/c5/daeface42ea8.jpg)

- why when you hover the mouse cursor on the "save" it becomes very dark?

(http://s018.radikal.ru/i501/1512/f2/d7b000fb7748.jpg)

How to make the background lighter quotes?

(http://s018.radikal.ru/i520/1512/38/09da3c681f57.jpg)

If you do not complicate - describe in great detail, with links.
Thank you very much in advance.
