Background image change within a template by topics
« on: November 23, 2007, 07:59:33 PM »
Hi

I want to have the same theme for every topic but with different backrounds.

So far I did this by installing the same theme multiple times and changed the background images in their directory, then assigned the "different" themes to the relevant topics.

I'm sure there is a more sophisticated way to do this.
Anyone can tell me pls?

Funny enough, that is how I would have done it and came into the thread with that exact suggestion in mind.  Will be interesting to see if someone else has a more efficient method.

You mean by board right? Because by topic would be alot of backgrounds..lol.

You could do something like this in index.template:
Code: [Select]
if(!empty($GLOBALS['board']))
{
echo'<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="',$theme_url,'/style',$GLOBALS['board'],'.css" />';
}
else
{
echo'<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="',$theme_url,'/style.css" />';
}

Now in case you're thinking, wtf does that mean, here is an explanation:

Using the variable "$GLOBALS['board']" we will get the ID of the current board that is being viewed. This means that with our code, style5.css will be used on board 5, for example, while a normal css file will be called when you are not viewing a board. You can simply make copies of style.css with the right changes and rename them what they need to be.

Alternatively you can hard code the background in index.template while using that variable and just changing the background image itself.

It doesn't want to work for me.

index.template.php
Code: [Select]

/*
 Camo Theme for SMF
 By: simply sibyl based on the default theme for SMF
 http://www.smfhacks.com

 Built in support for SMF Gallery, SMF Store, SMF Articles, SMF Links,
 Tagging system, Staff List, Contact


This template is, perhaps, the most important template in the theme. It
contains the main template layer that displays the header and footer of
the forum, namely with main_above and main_below. It also contains the
menu sub template, which appropriately displays the menu; the init sub
template, which is there to set the theme up; (init can be missing.) and
the linktree sub template, which sorts out the link tree.

The init sub template should load any data and set any hardcoded options.

The main_above sub template is what is shown above the main content, and
should contain anything that should be shown up there.

The main_below sub template, conversely, is shown after the main content.
It should probably contain the copyright statement and some other things.

The linktree sub template should display the link tree, using the data
in the $context['linktree'] variable.

The menu sub template should display all the relevant buttons the user
wants and or needs.

For more information on the templating system, please see the site at:
http://www.simplemachines.org/

I only changed the : background-image: url(images/seeds.jpg); in the other style2.css style3.css etc.
The pictures are in the /images folder, the .css files are in the same folder where the style.css.

The site always shows the original  backround wich is declared in style.css.

Maybe I have to put the code to an other place?

Thanks by the way!

I'll take a quick look.

Remember you'll need a style.css for every board, even if you don't want the background to change.

I don't understand what do you mean?
I have the original style.css.

You're going to have to link me to your board, because i can't understand why it wouldn't work.

umm..

ok, then. If i can't have a link, could you at least view the source on a board page and see what stylesheet is being used?

the board names are not in relation with the ID I guess, but apart from that the bg should change, shouldn't it?

I can send u the username and passw if needed.
Thanks!

It doesn't look like the variable is even working.

If you want, you can set me up a test admin account, i'll figure out why it's not working.

Oh wait, board isn't a global by default.

Code: [Select]
// The main sub template above the content.
function template_main_above()
{
   global $context, $settings, $options, $scripturl, $txt, $modSettings;

make that:

Code: [Select]
// The main sub template above the content.
function template_main_above()
{
   global $context, $settings, $options, $scripturl, $txt, $board, $modSettings;

Ok, i fixed it.

Problem is that you didn't replace the current stylesheet link tag, you just added the code i gave you in without removing the other link tag, so the page was linking to both stylesheets...

Uh,
a HUGE thank you for you!

but do you mean this part?
Code: [Select]
// The ?fin11 part of this link is just here to make sure browsers don't cache it wrongly.
echo '
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="', $settings['theme_url'], '/style.css?fin11" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="', $settings['default_theme_url'], '/print.css?fin11" media="print" />';
// the bg changer code

Sorry but I met with php only a day ago. Since then I keep trying to decypher it..

again, thank you very much for your help

Yeah. You were supposed to replace that part, but it's fixed now, no harm done. Glad i could help.
