[Theme] Simply White (SMF 1.0 / SMF 1.1)
« on: June 14, 2005, 10:43:01 PM »
Download for SMF 1.0
Download for SMF 1.1

Preview


Note: Please uncheck: "Show buttons as images instead of text" in the theme settings page for this theme.

It is a white and light gray colored theme and things are going fairly well for it.

Some of its unique features is that it uses no buttons but rather CSS. A good example of this can be found with the top buttons (Home, Help, Search, etc)
This should open room for multi-language support right from the start.

Looking nice .. light theme would be great addition indeed. If I may suggest, removing all the images even those for the topic icons as well. Also with multi gray scale Divs you can add a nice shadow .. something like this:

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

Thanks for the comments.

I changed the look of the top buttons making them look like tabs. This was done by simply adding a padding-bottom CSS to the class they were in.

I plan to do a similar effect to the New Topic, New Reply, etc buttons also.

Also on and off no longer are images. They share the same class as the top buttons currently.

Also no longer images are the bottom php, mysql, xhtml, and CSS buttons. Which are also currently using the same class as the top buttons.

Feel free to tell me what you think.  ;)

I think it is a great theme.  :) Are you planning on keeping the spacers in the menu? Maybe looking better without them.

I just removed the (|) between each of them. Though I am not sure if removing all of the space between them would look the best.

It has been something I have wanted to do for a long time and I am glad I am finally making a theme with the use of CSS instead of images. :)
Something similar http://www.bloczone.net/smf/index.php?;action=forum;theme=18 :)
The color scheme is quite similar, but I think the general feel of that theme is quite a bit different then this theme. :)

Screenshots anyone?

Here is something you need to be logged in to see:



As you can see the difference between the on and off buttons is the font color. Customizable in the stylesheet with ease. :)

Also note the category effect when a category contains a board with new posts. Too much? Just right?

After a whole lot of fixing upon how the theme appeared on IE and a ton of fixes of invalid XHTML, I finally present you with the download of Simply White.

See first post for download link and preview.

I hope you like it!

I like the look. Just FYI, the "User Info" and "Forum News" boxes are broken in Safari 1.3. They break out of the container, continuing off the right side of the page, requiring a horizontal scroll to see the right edges.

I will look into it, but unfortunately I don't have a Mac so I will be unable to test in Safari. But hopefully I can figure out why it is doing that. Thanks for letting me know.

Update: Simply White is now fully compatable with SMF 1.1 Beta 3 Public!

But not only is it compatable, but much has changed since the first Simply White that makes it better than ever!

+ Now buttons change colors when you hover over them. (style.css)
+ Headerbodies class is now used for both Forum News and User Info (index.template.php)
+ Logo added
+ Line Break added after "View Profile  WWW  Email" to make it look cleaner (Display.template.php)
+ Mark ALL messages as Read link now a button not just a link (BoardIndex.template.php)

It is highly recommended not to try to upgrade your Simply White theme until you are using SMF 1.1. I do not know how well the theme would work in SMF 1.0. If requested, I will provide the changes for SMF 1.0.

Hi,

I really like the theme ~ congrats
I'm using SMF 1.1 Beta 3 Public, I tried to upload the 1.1 version with package manager & got tis error

The package you tried to upload either is not a valid package or has become corrupted.

Any ideas? do I need to unzip it & upload manually?

Thanks

Simply White doesn't need to be/can't be installed through the package manager.

You can  install the theme for SMF 1.1 through "Themes and Layout". And if you are upgrading the theme from the one released for SMF 1.0, you can overright the files. Or just install the new one and delete the old one.

Ah! I knew I was doing something wrong but couldn't figure out what

Thanks for the speedy reply

One last thing the button images don't work (den.buildtolearn.net/forums/Themes/SimplyWhite1/images/english/home.gif)
There isn't an  english folder in images nor can I find the images

All help is appreciated :)
