Thank you!

Maybe I don't have it uploaded correctly. It does not "sense" any other language files. It only gives me the option of English. I placed the settings.swedish.php file in the apollo language directory and the swedish images in the images directory in its own folder. Is that the correct way to do it?


I would put those in themes/default/languages instead.

That way it will be visible for ALL themes. I also think "catching" more languages automatically only work there..not in other themes language-folders. If you put any files in those, they will override default ones...but if default does not have one in the first place, I guess it won't work.


OK I am just not quite grasping this for some reason.

I have installed the apollo theme via the theme manager with no problem. The "language" files I downloaded for this theme are really just the buttons in each specific language.

Question 1
Where do the specific language graphics go? In the apollo images directory or the default images directory.

Question 2
The only php file I find for the languages is the Settings.language.php file. Where does this file go?

Question 3
Are there any other files I need and if so where do I find them?

Question 4
So far everything else has been easy to install via some kind of installer, is there no way to install languages easily as well?

Thanks for you help.



ah..I misunderstood you, I thought you were installing ALL the swedish language files. They should go in themes/default/languages. There are meny of them, and they can be downloaded in the download section on this site.


1. themes/apollo/images/swedish (create one if it isn't there)
2. themes/apollo/languages (create one if it isn't there)
3. as mentioned...probably ALL the other xxx.swedish.php files...put them in themes/default/languages (this folder should already be there)
4. No, not as I know of I am afraid.


OK, Now we're cookin'   :D

Thanks for your help!!



i just installed Apollo theme ad i like it!
However, how i can modify the template to see non-bold topic titles in the main screen?
I mean, currently apollo template:

last post titles are bold, i would have it non bold like in the old yabb theme


Open BoardIndex.template.php and find this code:

                                if (!empty($board['last_post']['id']))
                                        echo ' <a href="', $board['last_post']['href'], '">
                       <img border="0" vspace="3" hspace="5" alt="last post" src="' , $settings['images_url'] , '/post/xx.gif" align="left" /></a> ', $board['last_post']['time'], '<br />
                       <b>', $board['last_post']['link'], '</b> ', $txt[525], '
                       ', $board['last_post']['member']['link'];

Just remove the <b> and </b> around ', $board['last_post']['link'], ' there and the subjects will be in normal weight. :)

Really sorry .. real life is demanding my full attention .. will be back soon hopefully :)


I will try to adjust it so it validates. (the first theme I made actually :) )


Hi Bloc,
some users suggested they are missing the "previous/next post" links to the bottom of the post (like in the classic theme).
Currently Apollo display "previous/next" on top only:

Is this a change i can do by myself or should you think about these request on future versions?

Thank you  :)


I will add this. :) Going to update this theme shortly anyway.


Apollo is updated for both SMF 1.0.5 and 1.1beta3. They should also validate.

See first post for download links.


I just updated to the latest Apollo and i have 2 major problems.
First, i have missing images:

Second, once i'm logged in, the shrink/unshrink don't work anymore.


Which one did you install? the 1.0.5 or 1.1 version?


 :o sorry...i installed the 1.1 having SMF 1.0.5....i'll retry with the correct version... :o


Got a quick request.  Is there a way to make a shop and arcade button for this theme?  or are there already some(can I get the link to that if so)?
