I finally did it. It' just a stylesheet problem as I supposed. The same foreground and background colors are defined for both text and backgound for message display in lines 175-185 in style.css file.

It' s OK for standard text but the same background seems to stop special effects like glow and shadow. To cure this problem.

Find in line 175 in style.css of Iblues theme the code
Code: [Select]
/* Alternating backgrounds for posts, and several other sections of the forum. */
.windowbg, .windowbg td
{
color: black;
background-color: white;
}
.windowbg2, .windowbg2 td
{
color: black;
background-color: #dbeaf5;
}

and replace it with
Code: [Select]
/* Alternating backgrounds for posts, and several other sections of the forum. */
.windowbg
{
   color: black;
   background-color: #eeeeee;
}
.windowbg td
{
   color: black;
}
.windowbg2
{
   color: black;
   background-color: #dbeaf5;
}
.windowbg2 td
{
   color: black;
}

You will also notice that except the solution explained I have changed the background color of the white message alternative to light grey (#eeeeee instead of white in line 179). This is for the white lines to show correctly.

If you want to keep the white - cyan combination you may change the line to a darker color. You will find it in line 105-111

Code: [Select]
hr, .hrcolor
{
height: 1px;
border: 0;
color: white;
background-color: white;
}

Change to whatever color you like and test it. It' s just a .css file.

It seems that gradually I am coming back after many years not struggling with programming. Windows made me lazy...

Download the tar.gz file to your local disk. Then direct your browser to the admin theme install menu and select the option "install from a file". This will upload the theme files to your server and create the theme entry in your database as well.

Swedish buttons not displayed...
« Reply #47 on: May 24, 2005, 07:22:37 AM »
Hey, what a great theme this is!
But, I'm so sorry that only the "main" buttons work in the Swedish distribution, the topic buttons (i.e. post buttons) do not  :'(. Any solution to this?

Thanks!

Dennisronja do you want to install the theme or my change in style.css http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=23812.msg264987#msg264987 ?

If your server runs in safe mode the theme won't install from tar file in your hard disk.

Please explain what you want to do. I might know how to help you.

Sorry, but the news "flash" to the right of a new topic doesn't work either in Swedish... The graphic seems to be missing :(

misjka I don' t see any swedish button blue button set in http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=2121.0

You probably don't have uploaded a swedish button set in Ibues theme.

That' s the reason that you don' t see the buttons and the "news" graphic.

I use the Iblues theme in Greek language but I have made my own buttons with Bloc' s button generator http://www.bloczone.net/button-generator/apollo.php. Another excellent button generator by Marco van Veelen can be found in http://www.yabb.nl/buttongenerator/index.php.

You can copy the default' s theme buttons for Swedish in Iblues theme. Copy the images/swedish directory to Iblues/images. Then you will have working buttons until you find or make a more suiting set.

In SMF you must have another language' s buttons in the correspondind directory (images/lanquage of each theme you use. Otherwise you won' t see the buttons if you choose this language.

Iblues theme uses a different approach in displaying the main menu buttons. In other themes you won' t see even them, if you don't have the language' s button set uploaded in the proper directory.

You may also ask Andrea to make a swedish button set for Iblues.

I tried playing with this a bit, what I want to do is change the color of the Forum Name up in the header. I haven't found the right spot in the index.template.php file though. Do you have any thoughts?

Mmmm.... Another annoying thing is that urls in the news field are colored white... on a white background, hmm... so they simply get invisible  ::)

Never Mind... I found what I was looking for. I had actually found the right spot just was using the wrong code. Duh.

It' s OK with 1.1 in general.

You can have a look at SMF 1.1 beta and Iblues theme here.

It' s a test forum, you can try it. It's in 1.1. beta2. I have put Iblues as the default theme. My working forum is in 1.03, I am waiting for some mods upgrade.

The few messages may look greek, they really are in Greek language.

Nice theme  :) I can't seem to find the link to the theme for downloading....Where is it? If it is an attachment icon, I cannot see it (my browsers probably goofing).

Deoxys you can find the download file link for Iblues theme in the first message of this thread
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=23812.msg188637#msg188637

Look for iblues.tar.gz after the theme preview thumbnail.
