Link To Mod | Mod Discussion | Other SMF Customization Team Mods


Compatibility
For SMF 2.1.x

Introduction
Adds color settings for the the SMF 2.1 default theme

Installation
Any previous versions of this mod MUST be uninstalled BEFORE installing this version.
This mod is mainly for the default theme, custom themes might be compatible depending on the author of the custom theme.

Usage in custom themes (for theme authors)
If you wish to make use of the mod and allow admins to change colors in your theme, add an array with the following format to template_init()

<?php
$settings
['color_changes'] = array(
    
'COLOR_TYPE' => array(
        array(
            
'elements' => '.ELEMENT, #ANOTHER_ELEMENT',
            
'properties' => array('PROPERTY_NAME''ANOTHER_PROPERTY' => '{color}')
        )
        array(...)
    ),
    ...
);

You can use one of the already declared color types :

'background', 'foreground', 'primary_color', 'secondary_color', 'top_section', 'footer', 'links', 'gradient_end', 'gradient_start', 'blocks_color', 'blocks_alternate_color', 'borders_color', 'buttons_text_color', 'buttons_bg', 'buttons_border', 'special_titles_color'

or you can use a new color type, but you'll have to give it a text string in this format
$txt['cc_COLOR_TYPE'] = 'STRING';Properties will be given the value of the color, and you can also use {color} and it will be replaced with the color's value.

example from the default theme:
<?php
$settings
['color_changes'] = array(
    
'background' => array(
        array(
            
'elements' => 'body',
            
'properties' => array('background')
        )
    ),
    
'primary_color' => array(
        array(
            
'elements' => 'div.cat_bar, .amt, .dropmenu li a:hover, .dropmenu li:hover a, .dropmenu li a:focus,
            #top_info > li > a:hover, #top_info > li:hover > a, #top_info > li > a.open, .button.active, .button.active:hover'
,
            
'properties' => array('background''border-color')
        ),
        array(
            
'elements' => '#footer',
            
'properties' => array('background')
        ),
        array(
            
'elements' => '.button.active, .button.active:hover',
            
'properties' => array('color' => '#fff')
        )
    ),
    
'gradient_start' => array(
        array(
            
'elements' => '.dropmenu li ul, .top_menu, .dropmenu li li:hover, .button, .dropmenu li li:hover > a, .dropmenu li li a:focus,
            .dropmenu li li a:hover, #top_section, #search_form .button, .quickbuttons li, .quickbuttons li ul, .quickbuttons li ul li:hover,
            .quickbuttons ul li a:focus, .popup_window, #inner_section'
,
            
'properties' => array('background-image' => 'linear-gradient(to bottom, {color} 0%, transparent 70%)')
        ),
        array(
            
'elements' => '.button:hover, .quickbuttons li:hover, .navigate_section ul, .popup_content, .up_contain,
            .button:hover, #search_form .button:hover, .quickbuttons li:hover'
,
            
'properties' => array('background-image' => 'linear-gradient(to bottom, transparent 0%, {color} 70%)')
        )
    ),
);

А very useful idea.
Amazing!  :)

Haven't checked out the guts of it yet, but I'm guessing this adds a range of user-specific theme settings to deal with all the possible options.

Has anyone done some checking on the performance implications for large and/or busy sites?

Not user-specific, that would be too much :/

The settings are admin-specific.

Then why does it say "allow users to change colors"?

A tad ambiguous, as SychO's post demonstrates, but ok.

This is great... but it doesn't seem to work when duplicating the default theme into another folder for the newly created theme.

Also for some reason general text colour can't be changed.

Nice work, though :3

You can change text color, look for "Foreground color" option in "Configuration => Current theme" :)

I really like this. Wish this was bundled with 2.1 gives users more options.

I made a copy of the default Curve theme and added the code as shown above to template_init() right after:

if (!isset($settings['disable_files']))
$settings['disable_files'] = array();


, but I don't get the options for that theme. (I want to make it darker.) I am using 2.1RC2 and there aren't many (any?) dark themes compatible with it yet.  (Tried Lunarfall, but it garbles text for reasons I haven't figured out.) Is there something else I need to do?


GirlinGray

Hi, this looks great. My forum is running SMF 2.0.15.

Do you know if this will work with SMF 2.0.15 -- or must I shift up to SMF 2.1x first?

Thanks.

This is not compatible with 2.0.x

Thanks, good to know.

I was not even aware there was an SMF 2.1. Ahhh!
