Pirates

Link to the theme


A theme inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean and centered around it.

Demo Can Be Seen Here
The zip file contains the PSD for 2 sizes of headers: normal and wide. Also the font used is included in the zip file.

This theme was designed using SMF 1.1.1 default template and has been tested on IE7, FF2, and Opera 9 on the Windows Platform using a screen res of 1024 x 786, therefore optimal viewing res is the same.

This is a graphically heavy theme and my first one ever. I hope anyone who uses it likes it.

Just a small note:

The theme uses a fixed background, if you feel it is a bit 'jerky' you can easily set the background to moving by editing this line in the index.temlate.php file

<body style="background-attachment: fixed; background-image: url(\''.$settings['images_url'].'/sea_back.jpg\');">


Replace with:

<body style="background-image: url(\''.$settings['images_url'].'/sea_back.jpg\');">


And that will make the theme more fluid :)

enjoy

For people already using this theme - I over looked a small thing in the theme

Please fix it by uploading the style.css file attached to the theme folder

And the image attached to the /images/ folder

Thanks

Download these 2 files
Style.css (right click and save as)
Catbg2 Image (right click and save as)

i get the copyright problems....is there a code i need to get rid of the saying about copyright on the bottom?

Thanks

branded

Sorry, the copyright must be in the template.
Please notify this forum's administrator that this site is using an ILLEGAL copy of SMF!



thats what it say's on the bottom

Gobo

Please make sure of a few things...

1. That your forum version is 1.1.1, since this theme ws designed only for that version of SMF

2. Open you index.template.php file and make sure this part is there ', theme_copyright(), '

3. Check in the languages folder for file Index.English.php to make sure you have these parts in there:

global $forum_copyright, $forum_version, $webmaster_email;


and


$forum_copyright = '<a href="http://www.simplemachines.org/" title="Simple Machines Forum" target="_blank">Powered by ' . $forum_version . '</a> |
<a href="http://www.simplemachines.org/about/copyright.php" title="Free Forum Software" target="_blank">SMF &copy; 2006, Simple Machines LLC</a>';


Also you can try to reupload JUST the index.template.php and Languages folder to the Pirates theme folder and see if that fixes it.

Hey Thank you very much for your theme ... coz my site is Pirates site... this is very suitable for my site http://da-pirates.com , but i have one problem, when i select option in current theme "Hide post group titles for grouped members?
Enabling this will not display a members post group title on the message view if they are assigned to a non-post based group." it still showing for membergroups as Newbie.. etc ... plz fix this problem .. ty once again

Gobo

Thanks for letting me know - ill check it out and get back to u later today :up:

Gobo

I had a look and compared the default template to the pirates template

There is a slight modification I did which may have caused that...

To fix it, please open up Display.template.php file of the pirates theme and find:


// Show the member's primary group (like 'Administrator') if they have one.
if (isset($message['member']['group']) && $message['member']['group'] != '')
echo '
', $message['member']['group'], '<br />';

// Show the post group if and only if they have no other group or the option is on, and they are in a post group.
if ((empty($settings['hide_post_group']) || $message['member']['group'] == '') && $message['member']['post_group'] != '')
echo '
', $message['member']['group_stars'], '<br />';
echo '
', $message['member']['post_group'], '<br />';


Replace it with:

// Show the member's primary group (like 'Administrator') if they have one.
if (isset($message['member']['group']) && $message['member']['group'] != '')
echo '
', $message['member']['group'], '<br />';

// Show the post group if and only if they have no other group or the option is on, and they are in a post group.
if ((empty($settings['hide_post_group']) || $message['member']['group'] == '') && $message['member']['post_group'] != '')
echo '
', $message['member']['post_group'], '<br />';
echo '
', $message['member']['group_stars'], '<br />';

SMF 7 is where it gets good. That has time travel. You can go back and post before the guy who flamed you. :P

Gobo

Krysia

What an incredible theme.

And so thorough with the detail... Freaking fabulous! Makes me wish I had some kind of pirate thing going on so I can use it. :( LOL...

I have a lot of editing to do to integrate this theme into my forums fully since it's wrapped into my joomla installation.

I was wondering, is it okay to somehow edit it to BE my joomla template so that my site and my forums are in sync?  I wouldn't want to do this without your permission of course.

Also, right now I'm using a Space Faerie theme and I was incredibly limited, I want my site to be unique in everything. So far I am the only Neopets fan site using Joomla and the only site using SMF forums (almost all others are vbulletin or proboards) and I would be the only person using a pirate theme :D I'm loving it.

You certainly went above and beyond with this one, it is totally awesome!  Good work, and since this is your first, I can only imagine how your future themes will be

Gobo

Thanks :D

Sure feel free to use the theme as you please. If you need to adapt it for Joomla, mkportal or any other portal feel free to do so as well

install it via the Themes and Layout area in your admin panel

Admin --> Themes and Layout
and then at the bottom "install a new theme"

just make sure u are using the SMF version of the theme and ur forum is 1.1.1 :)

Superb theme.Thank you so much.

pirateluver

Um, I really need the BoardIndex.template.php file so I can change some things on the main page. Can you please give the link to it?  

Gobo

There is no board index template in this theme it only uses the display.template.php, index.template.php and as for the board layout, it grabs that from the smf core theme. (also known as smf default core)


pirateluver

So if I wanted something to display ONLY on the index page, where would I make the modifications?

pirateluver

akulion just said there wasn't one... ::)

xenovanis

So, copy the file from the default theme to the Pirates team directory and make your alterations  ;)

Ok. I'll give it a shot. I'm a newbie at PHP though....  :-[

Very professional looking Theme!  :)

willski4beer

I have really enjoyed your pirate theme for the following site: hxxp:pirates.closetgamers.com/forum/index.php [nonactive]

I followed the link at the bottom of it & ended up here

I was wondering if I could get you to do a similar style with a new theme such as perhaps loosely based off of the movie "Gladiator" and incorperating a other "Ancient Roman" stuff ie Colisseums and how the gladiators fought in them...

Look4you

this theme works with the last version?

AHMER

Congratulation for Theme Pirates, it is the theme better that i have seen :)

MoreBloodWine

Great theme but I have a question...

This is kind of bugging me but, when logged in as a non admin "regular member" the news bar at the top of the site with the search thing to the right of the news shows up for me. However, when logged in as the admin the news bar with the search thing to the right is gone / hidden. Whats up with that and how can I get it to show for me / anyone else it may be hidden from ?
