Link to the theme


Fishing/Outdoors-man type theme.
This theme contains CSS3, and is not compatible with some older browsers.
Demo can be seen at: hxxp:www.pixelmansion.com/demosite [nonactive]

any comments? ..... Good or bad?

I see where you were going with this. But, the colors seem a bit too sharp for my taste. A more faded look on the background image would give the impression of glass on the rest of the forum. The header wood also seems a bit too sharp, maybe try various wood patterns until you get a better look.

;)
No, I will not offer free downloads to Premium DzinerStuido themes. Please stop asking.

Hope someone is still lurking here to help me with this one. I was redirected here from the "SMF Coding Discussion" page.

Can anyone tell me how I can remove the forum name from my pages (the red square in the picture)?
I have been searching for it a while......very new to css and having tough time understanding how it works compared to HTML. Using the 'gone fishing' template.
Thanks
Chips

In ~/Themes/GoneFishin/index.template.php, find this around line 293:

// Each tree item has a URL and name. Some may have extra_before and extra_after.
foreach ($context['linktree'] as $link_num => $tree)


Just before that, add this bit, which shifts the forum name off the link tree.

// Take off the forum name and assign it to this variable.
$forum_name = array_shift($context['linktree']);

Thanks CREW.....that got it.

Can you direct me to locate where I can change the 'page' color or remove it altogether in the white box in the image below? There is another one that appears below the opwt window That I would like to change color or remove as well.  Is it on the index.template.php page as well?
Thanks again.....Chris

In ~/Themes/GoneFishin/css/index.css, find this around line 491:

.pagelinks
{
padding: 0.6em 0 0.4em 0;
}


Replace it with this:

.pagelinks
{
padding: 0.6em 0 0.4em 0;
color: #fff;
}


The CREW, out.  ::)

Haha, it's cool. Glad to be of assistance. :)

ChipsXJ

FYI...............I posted an update to this issue on my original post in the SMF coding Discussion board giving you the credit. Hope that's ok.......?

http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=490902.0

Thanks again Craw.

The Craw

That's better than fine. It's recommended. ;)

@Chips

As I said before although Craws help did er help users are usually best to ask the theme authors themselves which is why I directed you to the Pixel Mansion link.

ChipsXJ

Hey Old Fossil. I hear you.....and That's where I'll go in the future for issues in that arena.

Just felt I need to update this post that a solution was found and give him the credit.

I appreciate your direction.
Thanks

It seems to me that a person should be able to ask a question in the themes support topic. After all that is what it's for. Unless of course the author explicitly states that support will be provided from his or her own website only. Which isn't to say that there's something wrong with going directly to the source, just that these topics are here for a reason, and I see nothing wrong with using them accordingly. Just my two cents.

Also, just so there's something in this post that's relative to the topic, I do like this theme. Besides the aforementioned color issues, it's pretty slick. :)

hello again.

If someone has the time and they are so inclined to assist me............I have another issue.

I have been trying to find out where/how I can change the background of the forum insert. I like the image for the background on the page but would like to set the forum background to not be transparent but a solid color.

I have not been able to locate code where to change it.

The other thing is I have not been able to get the menu bar to center.

web address is okfishtales.com

thanks
Chip

For the background, find this around line 3723 of index.css:

#bodyarea {
padding: 5px;
margin: 20px 0 0 0;
padding-left: 15px;
padding-bottom: 30px;
padding-right: 15px;
color: #444444;
box-shadow: 1px 13px 13px 8px #000000;
border-radius: 20px;
}


Put your background after border-radius, like:

border-radius: 20px;
background: #111;





For the menu, find this around line 3646 of index.css:

#topnav ul {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}
#topnav li {
float: left;
margin: 0;
padding: 0 0 0 2px;
position: relative;
list-style: none;
}


And replace it with this:

#topnav ul {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
text-align: center;
}
#topnav li {
display: inline-block;
margin: 0;
padding: 0 0 0 2px;
position: relative;
list-style: none;
}


And that's all. :)

Wont work. You can't use a basic text-align to center a menu made of floated <li>'s. You have to get tricky and use relative positioning. There's a tutorial in Tips and Tricks, and I made a mod that does it for the default theme.

The Craw

You can if you set the list elements to inline-block. CSS hacks FTW!  ;D
