Hi,

I like this theme very much, the black and gold accents give it a very stylish look. For my forum, I would like to incorporate a background image in the header area, just like you did in Actualism. Would you be able to assist me with the code?

Thanks

Lovely theme :)
I'm using it on 2.0 gold, the only issue I have is that the text in the reply box is appearing rather large in all browsers.
Any way around this?

Find and replace this part of Quick≥Reply in css/index.css

Code: [Select]
/* Styles for the quick reply area.
---------------------------------------------------- */

#quickreplybox
{
padding-bottom: 1px;
}
#quickReplyOptions .roundframe
{
padding: 0 10%;
}
#quickReplyOptions form textarea
{
height: 100px;
width: 635px;
max-width: 100%;
min-width: 100%;
margin: 0.25em 0 1em 0;
}

that should do it.

Hi Crip

I'm loving your theme on my forum since I've upgraded to 2.0.  It's given my forum a fantastic facelift.

Like a poster above, I'm finding that when I reply to a topic, the text in the box is quite large.  I've tried what you recommended previously but it hasn't really changed anything (those are the dimensions of the quickreply area already on my forum css/index.css).

I have this problem when replying to a topic and when modifying a topic in the topic view area.

EDIT:

I'm also having an issue in my error log saying that the following file doesn't exist forum/Themes/ambassador_2_0/images/theme/frame_repeat.png

Can you tell me where it is or send it to me so I can put it in the right place?  It lists about a hundred refering pages so I'm guessing there is something not obvious missing from the theme folders.

Thanks!

Ah, yes, the problem with the frame_repeat file. What I did was place a dummy frame_repeat.png file (i.e. an empty txt file renamed to frame_repeat.png) in there. I already contacted Crip about it and he said that the file isn't needed, so all you need to do is remove the reference of the file in the ambassador css file.

So find in Ambassador's index.css:

Code: [Select]
/* the content section */
#content_section
{
background: #2c1B1B  url(../images/theme/frame_repeat.png) repeat-y top left;
padding-left: 20px;
}
#content_section div.frame
{
background: url(../images/theme/frame_repeat.png) #3f1B1B repeat-y top right;
display: block;
padding: 0 20px 0 0;

Replace with:

Code: [Select]
/* the content section */
#content_section
{
/*background: #2c1B1B  url(../images/theme/frame_repeat.png) repeat-y top left;*/
padding-left: 20px;
}
#content_section div.frame
{
/*background: url(../images/theme/frame_repeat.png) #3f1B1B repeat-y top right;*/
display: block;
padding: 0 20px 0 0;

Best / easy way , is delete it out of there..css/index.css
Code: [Select]
/* the content section */
#content_section
{
background: #2c1B1B  url(../images/theme/frame_repeat.png) repeat-y top left;
padding-left: 20px;
}
#content_section div.frame
{
background: url(../images/theme/frame_repeat.png) #3f1B1B repeat-y top right;
display: block;
padding: 0 20px 0 0;
}



Until it looks like So:
Code: [Select]
/* the content section */
#content_section
{
background: #2c1B1B;
padding-left: 20px;
}
#content_section div.frame
{
background: #3f1B1B;
display: block;
padding: 0 20px 0 0;

Thanks MiY4Gi & Crip!

MiY4aGi's suggestion seemed to work.  I'll try Crip's suggestion on my forum soon.

Can either of you figure out if it's possible to make the text in the posting box smaller?  Whenever I reply to a topic on my forum the text in the box is enormous.  I'm not sure where to find this on the stylesheet.
Title: Re: Ambassador

Hi Crip!

I have had a few users with a slight issue on this theme and hoped you could help.

On the forum page or topic list, if there are 'new' replies a little 'new.gif' image displays (it's just a yellow gif with the word 'new' on it).

Some of my users say that the gif doesn't work at all...  they get that default broken image pic instead and it doesn't look good.  I've tried everything I can think of - I even linked the gif in a post, and they saw it so it worked, but for some reason it's not showing up on their screens in the topic list.

We've also tried:
clearing the cookies and cache
changing the settings on their browsers
different browsers
mobile phones

The same problem exists across all browsers for these two or three users.  I can't replicate their problem, the image works for me on all browsers and PCs so far.  I don't suppose you have some clue what this could be?

Thanks!
WS

This doesn't sound like a theme problem. It could be a server problem (on your side), or a router/internet problem (on their side).

Do those users have antiviruses? From what location were they logging into the forum (work or home)? Do they use proxies?

Thanks guys!

I'm gonna try to get online with them this weekend (they're in a different timezone) to figure out what's up.  Incidentally - none of the theme's 'new' gifs work.

Strange, since every other gif/png/jpg seems to work, just not THOSE ones. 

((Checked out your site, MiY4Gi!  Got a place I can comment on it?))
Title: Re: Ambassador
Post by: MiY4Gi on September 12, 2011, 06:42:23 PM
Heeeeeh?! Really?! Thank you. There's no place on the site to comment, but you can tell me here what you think. I've still got plenty of work to do on it, so it will be a few months before I start advertising it to the public.

So what do you think? I'm still a bit skeptical about using a dark theme since I don't know if new forumites will like it. Most forums I've been on use light colored themes. Anyway, one major change I'm considering making to the theme is to the make the main menu and other headings rectangular (the curved edges bother me), but I'll still deciding whether it would make the theme look better or worse. I'm very picky, and I won't settle until I'm totally satisfied.
Title: Re: Ambassador
Post by: WantSome on September 13, 2011, 04:34:09 PM
Hey MiY4Gi...  I couldn't resist checking out your site *is also from SA originally and a fan of anime*  WHY WASN'T YOUR SITE AROUND WHEN I LIVED THERE?!

I use the dark theme as my default theme (because my own tastes run towards that) and I have Crip's Flagrantly theme set up so users can choose a lighter theme (some people prefer this if they have poor eyesight).  I actually prefer rounded corners but I suppose that's just a matter of personal preferences. 

I don't wanna clutter up Crip's thread with comments so I'll PM ya!


CRIP!!
I love both the themes.  I suddenly realised I didn't gush quite enough about how lovely they are.  Nice work!  Your Ambassador theme fits perfectly with my forum's feel (to me) so it was a gift to discover it upon upgrading to 2.0 and browsing new forum looks. 

The only thing I changed (baring a custom logo)  is the little image that displays if new posts are shown in a child board (called 'on2.png').  The two white pages seemed a little out of sync with the gold/black dots of the other boards.  So I made a brown one (hope you don't mind).  It's just a darker version of the 'on.png' image for new posts in main boards.   :laugh:

(still haven't worked out why the 'new.gif' doesn't work for two members.  will report back if I ever come up with a solution!)

How do I change the color of that forum frame? I edited the color in the css, but it seems that there's a color gradient at the top 3rd of the frame that seemingly can't be edited in the index.css file.

The code I changed is:

Code: [Select]
/**** The border like frame for ambassador. ****/
#border-wrap {
border: 2px solid #000000;
background: #825b32/***#1f1f1f***/ url(../images/frame/border_bg.gif) top left repeat-x;
padding: 10px;
}

I just changed the color #1f1f1f to #825b32.

How do I change the color at the top of the frame?

Hi Crip,

Very sorry to bother you but I've noticed two things I'd like to fix while I'm setting up my new board:

1)  There seems to be a gray area at the bottom of every page on the forum (beginning with the index page).  See image (https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.aedes.us%2Ff%2F5FRB0.jpg&hash=f0d2f030243a5ef552b78d958df01ea3)  This is in the footer.  Is there any way to make this black like the rest of the pages?

2)  The default font color seems to be a gray color and doesn't show up quite as brightly as I'd like.  What would I need to change and what would I need to change it to to make the text brighter or even white?

I'm in the process of reworking my site logs to more closely match the colors in Ambassador.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Crip!

I use your Ambassador theme as my default and really love it (never had issues before).  But yesterday a user posted that when he uses his iPad to visit the site, it displays strangely.  The image demonstrates:

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi1055.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fs516%2FAviseCookies%2Fphoto.jpg&hash=7f5dbeffb22f398a90e1e2ed7c55bc59)

Can you think what this might be? Is there a way to fix it?  I also use your Flagrantly theme and have asked the user to change themes and report back if the same thing occurs on Flagrantly.  I'll let you know what comes back.

Hi Crip!

I'm not sure if it was a bug, or how it got fixed, but the user with the issue reports that suddenly there isn't an issue with the theme on his iPad any more. 

I don't have an iPad in order to test it either, but my android tablet displays fine.

Go figure, right?  It's a miracle.

The menu does not drop down.
Even if I install Menu Editor, it wont work.
Any ideas?

usually i find the menu doesn't drop most times , because above it is an > (overflow: hidden) which will stop a Drop_down .......look for (overflow: hidden) above the menu..? find it comment it out..more less trouble shoot?

so i'd say therein lies the drop problem? .. or a .mod?

Bro'  .. i just really do not know whats up.. your guess is as good as mine..
I would say a mod is the cause?

Hi, Thanks for the theme. It looks great.

We noticed that in the top menu drop down, the background of the menu goes transparent on the 10th entry (I know, long menu) Wonder if you could suggest a fix?

Thanks for your great work!

Hi Crip, I am using your theme and do truly like it. I am no expert and have tried to fix a small problem with the theme.
When someone uses the reply section the size of the font appears to be '12' point but, when you see it posted it looks
smaller than '10'p. This is the setting that I think covers the reply box:
Code: [Select]
/* The font size of textareas should be just a little bit larger. */
textarea
{
   font: 130%/150% verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;
}

I would like to have the same size font show up when posting something as right now, you actually have to change the font size for it to be seen by all.
We do have a few older members and they have said it gets a little hard to see.
I am running 1680x1050 resolution and am using Palemoon 64bit browser but have been told it does it in all browsers.
This next section is what I THINK should have the change done to it;
Code: [Select]
/* Set a fontsize that will look the same in all browsers. */
body
{
   background: #757575;
   font: 78%/130% "Verdana", "Arial", "Helvetica", sans-serif;
   margin: 0 auto;
   margin-top: 15px;
   padding: 15px 0;
   background-image:-webkit-gradient(linear,  left top,  left bottom,  color-stop(0,  black),  color-stop(1,  #757575));
   background-image:-moz-linear-gradient(center top,  black 0%,  #757575 100%);
   background-color:#757575;
   margin:0 auto 30px auto;
   padding:0;
   min-width: 780px;
   width: 100%;
   max-width: 2300px;
   height: 100%;

Any help you could give would be very appreciated. One more thing, I noticed that you have made revisions to this theme, is there a reason that the theme needed to be revised ? and, if so, would it be useful for me to update what I have?

Thanks and this is my site's URL; http://greycastleoz.org/Forum2/index.php (http://greycastleoz.org/Forum2/index.php)

Text-Area should be this:

Code: [Select]
/* The font size of textareas should be just a little bit larger. */
textarea
{
font: 100%/130% verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;
}

The other stuff you mentioned , please explain better please?

Personally, I'd check the install path and theme path of your site. I had a similar issue once and that was the fix for me.
