TrekBreak

Link to the theme


This is a "Classic" era Star Trek theme. It uses gradients for the category and title backgrounds, and Star Trek themed icons.

Please note: Firefox (and other browsers using the Gecko engine) and Safari/Google Chrome (and other browsers using the Webkit engine) will see the optimal version of this theme. All others (IE, Opera, Konqueror users) will see a less-than-optimal version. At this time, and without making large coding edits, this is the closest I can get to optimal on non-Gecko/Wekbit browsers.

Theme is based on DzinerStudio's DarkBreak theme. Most of the icons are copyright to Cmdr. T. Weimann of http://www.lcars-interface.de. All other icons made by Eliana Tamerin.

And as for me developing it for SMF 1.1.x? The short answer is no.

Long answer:

Because SMF's next default theme is really what this should be made for.

The main issue here is that catbgs and titlebgs are all one image for IE and Opera compatibility purposes, and unless I go through and change ALL the code for catbgs and titlebgs, or do some kind of hacky javascript fix (which I'm not doing), the images have to have every component for the catbg and titlebg.

In more practical terms, that means that while the category and title backgrounds display fine on the Board Index, they cut off on the other pages. I can overcome this in Firefox and Google Chrome/Safari by using a CSS property that is specific to those browsers (actually their engines).

But in short, to fix this would require a recode of all pages, and this would be pointless since SMF's next default theme already does this and includes the necessary code. So we'll all have to just wait for it to be released until I can actually "fix" this theme.

And as far as converting it to 1.1.x, it would be even more work to change the coding and so forth when SMF's next New Default Theme comes out. So really, this is something that can be achieved, optimally on a theme based on Curve, and not Core. And SMF's new default theme will be for SMF 2.0 only. So that further negates the benefit of theming this for SMF 1.1.x, since it still won't be "fixed" for 1.1.x.

If you or someone else wishes to convert this theme to SMF 1.1.x for personal use, that's fine. Just leave the credits to me and Bikken/Dziner there.

If someone wants to convert this theme to SMF 1.1.x and redistribute it or share their changes, then they'll need to contact me for permission first.

Nice job. I was wondering when you'd do the official release over here.  ;)

ETA: You've got some code displaying across the top of your demo page.

Yeah, that's a bug in SMF 2 Beta 4. I'll comment out the code that's causing it.

EDIT: Fixed.

Eliana,

I have made a Star Trek RPG site using this wonderful theme and of course, SimplePortal. :P

I must say, as a trek fan, I love this theme, and only had to make a few minor changes to fit into the site and style. I'd love to have your opinion on how it looks, with the changes I made.

How do you do that trasnparency effect? I loved that

EDIT


OMG I realized it is an image ... I know how to do that, but I saw transparency effects in other themes of the same website where the demo is...  interesting !
