Potato Theme


The SMF Potato Theme that has nothing to do with potatoes.

WARNING: Does not work with ancient browsers. Compatible with SMF2.1 RC3+



Screenshots



Installation
Download the latest release package and upload it to your forum's theme section.

Updating
To update the theme, you can either manually apply the changes to the theme's files, or overwrite the theme files with files from a new release package.

Overwriting files with new release package files
This means that any custom file edits you may have made to the theme or any mod's modifications to the theme files will be lost, the former is not a problem as long as you remember your custom edits. The latter can create big problems with your forum setup.

So the only way for you to update the theme this way, is for you to avoid installing mods that edit the theme's files and make sure the theme's files are untouched.

Manually updating
If for whatever reason you cannot leave the theme files untouched, the only other way is for you to make the theme edits made from your version to the latest.

To list these edits, simply use the following URL by replacing the `VERSION` by your theme's version number and `NEW_VERSION` by the latest version number which you can see in the releases page.

Newbie question incoming.

RC3 is yet not released... ?

Anyway, looking good although have not tried it - Actually all of your themes seems to look good, the 3 in 2.0.17 you made are on a level for themself. I'm shortening my list of themes, deleting them one by one while testing and yours still on the list.

Although I guess they won't work with RC2 or RC3?

In any case nice work.

-edit-
The color of the new theme reminds me sorta when the potatos has gotten to much sunshine... Although there exist many colored variatens of potatoes really...

My bad there, I should edit the description to explain better, the theme will work with the dev builds (i.e dev version directly from github) I wrote RC3 because technically the dev version is about to be tagged for RC3.

No, but I will most likely update them for 2.1, NightBreeze is halfway updated.

Nice, I thought you might, as these gems are some of the finest themes around for sure for SMF. Is it a big work to make them able to run on the new version of SMF?
Like what sorts of things changes so they need to be edited, names of things to the CSS?

It is a lot of work, because I am not making changes to them to make them work with 2.1, I am essentially rewriting them for 2.1

Mick.

Nice theme bro, I dig.

I just looked at rc2 css file. Holy cow...a bit bunched up and it may deter folks from themeing. Im still playing around with it.

Just giving this a test run on my local.  What a fantastic theme you have produced here SychO. ;)

I do however have a issue, but it might just be me not quite grasping what things are supposed to do.  The Secondary Color: Doesn't appear to do anything when I change it.  The Primary Color: seems to change just fine. 

I did log it as an issue on GH anyway.   ;)

Thanks mate :) glad you like it.

Thank you, I appreciate issues getting logged there, it makes it easier to keep track of them.

Yea the secondary color is actually only used in maybe 4 or 5 elements, like the alerts counter in the header if you take a look at the screenshots above. It's not a noticeable color at first, but you'll see it used eventually :P

Thanks for the explanation, and therefore it probably is working as designed then.  Sorry.   ;)

In my head it was telling me as the Primary changes the header / footer colors the Secondary would change change the stuff in between. lol..   A sort of split between the two main colours.

SychO

yea it's not very clear since the secondary color is used very little, perhaps I could improve the description of those options or something.

Well you could do, but I'm a self confessed idiot, so in fairness it might not be needed for anyone else..  :D

You can't even use the old and just update them? :/
Oh my.

I could, but that'd probably be more tiring than rewriting them.
