Ant's Curve Variants
« on: June 19, 2011, 02:26:43 AM »
Link to the theme


This is going to be a catch all page for my 2.0 default theme variants. It's still WIP. No theme demos at the moment.

ETA: No further updates will be done to these until after 2.1 is stable.

I've finished updating the Prince of Darkness and Chocolate Curvaceous variants for 2.0 Final. These have numerous small CSS improvements over the 2.0 default, and also have had Superfish javascript menus added.

Full PSD's will be available for all customised images in the variants. For convenience, I've added a zip containing what PSD's are available for the 2.0 Final default theme. Unfortunately this is not a complete pack, but it does contain most of the useful ones. Thanks to Sinan for doing the stats_pie.psd, and to Bloc for doing the on_off_redirect.psd.

For anyone who would prefer to use Adobe Illustrator, ttteflon has made a copy of the main_block image in .ai format.

Terms of use are that all content from the theme download page, including PSD's, is free for use in any context on an SMF forum. I would like some credit if anyone asks where you got them, but if anyone chooses to be dishonest about it I'm not going to lose any sleep.

The theme zips will have an edited copyright (containing the theme name linked to my simplemachines.org email) but retaining the edited copyright is not necessary. Since the single variants do not have any template edits apart from the copyright, it is perfectly fine to just copy images and css to your default folder if you prefer to do that.

NOTE: If you wish to install my Dynamic Memberlist mod, it will not be necessary or desirable to install it on these variants. They will provided with all necessary index.css and rtl.css edits already included, as well as a custom image for the memberblocks and sorting buttons. Simply install the mod on the default theme and it will automatically work on these variants.

If anyone needs the default theme PSD's for 2.0 Final, they have been added to the download page.

Ok, after much stuffing around with CSS trivia and images, I've uploaded Chocolate Curvaceous. That means the theme and the PSD's for it. Being a fussy sort, I couldn't just do the minimum number of RC5>Final edits. I have to do things the hard way. :P

I've also reloaded Prince of Darkness. The first PSD zip for that one was missing the image for on/on2/off/redirect, so I've repacked them all. The theme itself has had further CSS and image tweaking for various elements.

I'll probably also whip up a tweaked css/js pack for Curve itself, with lots of little things the grumpy lead dev wouldn't let me pig around with for 2.0 Final. I'm sorta using these variants as a testbed for improvements in 2.1. ;)

Prince and Chocolate now come with Superfish jQuery menus as a standard feature. These have been tweaked for faster response as per this post.

The which? This is the latest zip for PoD, and the only one currently on the download page: http://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?action=download;lemma=2428;id=14271

If you're using an earlier one it's up to you whether you install the new one. I'm constantly pigging around with tweaking these things. Like I said before, I'm playing with them as test beds for 2.1 (since they basically are the default theme) and keep getting ideas. The older ones still work just fine though. Suit yourself. :)

BTW, I've re-thought the multi theme idea a bit. Instead of packaging the three "colour variants" (PoD, CC and BS) together I'm going to do something a bit different. I'm going to keep them separate but add layout variants to each one to show an alternative use of the 2.0 variant system. These will be css-only variants done on default markup and should hopefully give people some more ideas about what is possible without hacking templates.

Oh and I haven't uploaded Blue Steel yet because I'm not happy with it. It's kinda cool and has potential, but it's never really rocked like the other two and I'm not quite sure what it needs. Will think of something when I have time.

Very nice theme you made, thanks for that..

I was wondering if you could help me with some edits?

I want the greeting message to display at right side, under where the smf logo is now.

I tried to mess around with the #upper_section and #top_section code in css, but a noob like me would not figure this one out lol.

Those errors look to be caused by one of your mods. I notice you appear to have a custom buttons mod and an icons mod (or are they part of the same one?)

Anyway the undefined index is something to do with the way the button titles are handled. Suggest talking to the mod author about it.

I love this theme and am currently using it on my site. (I replaced Crips "Raven" theme with this one) But I am having a problem, as with Crips "Raven" theme, on the registration page all the fields are a dark color except for the "Choose Password" fields. They are both white and the text is also white so a user can't tell if/when they're typing in those fields. Any way to fix this please?

Thanks 8)

Any updates on Blue Steel? I'd like to get oldiesmann.us up to date at some point... I'm not in a huge hurry as the site is pretty much dead at this point, but it's on 2.0 RC3, so it's kinda outdated :P

@Bozilla: I'll fix that and reload the zips, as well as giving the code for the changes.

@Oldies: been up to my eyeballs in crap for the last week so no, aint any updates at the moment. I should just churn the thing out and be done with it. Will try to get it sorted this weekend.
