It looks good, but I can't get it running. A couple times I installed it, it left smf with no theme at all. And then a couple times it left the screen totally blank. What am I doing wrong? Thanks

how are you installing it?
what version of smf are you running? This theme is made for smf 2.1 rc 4, are you running smf 2.1rc4?

smf 2.1 rc4  :-[



Just tested this theme, and got the same error message.   

Theme has been zipped up incorrectly and is double foddered.   I zipped it up again properly and them installed fine. ;)

All you should need to do is increase the height of the header area.

Open custom.css and find

#header {
    background: #1c1b1b url(../images/custom/header.png) repeat-x;
    padding: 2px 2px 12px 2px;
    display: flex;
    align-items: flex-end;
    height: 100px;
}

Change height: 100px to whatever the height of your banner is + 25px. So if your banner is has the height of 150px it would look like

#header {
    background: #1c1b1b url(../images/custom/header.png) repeat-x;
    padding: 2px 2px 12px 2px;
    display: flex;
    align-items: flex-end;
    height: 175px;
}

open custom css and find
h1.forumtitle {
    font-size: 1.8em;
    font-family: "Tahoma",sans-serif;
    padding: 0px 0px 2px 4px;
    font-weight: 400;
    flex: 1 1 auto;
}
replace with
h1.forumtitle {
    font-size: 1.8em;
    font-family: "Tahoma",sans-serif;
    padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
    font-weight: 400;
    flex: 1 1 auto;
    text-align: center;
}

You will also need to replace the padding under .header from
padding: 2px 2px 12px 2px;
to

padding: 2px 0px 12px 0px;

Would it be possible for me to change the home button to my sites homepage instead of forum, Without affecting the breadcrumbs.

I have looked for a home link but have not been able to find it.

I do not think there is an easy way to do this through the theme itself unfortunately. I know with SMF 2.0 you needed to edit the Sources/Subs.php to accomplish that.  I believe it is the same for 2.1.  I suggest making a separate topic in the SMF 2.1 Support section to get this information.

Open custom.css find(line 118) -
.cat_bar .desc {
    color: #fff;
    font-size: 12px;
    line-height: 1.5em;
    font-weight: 400;
    margin: -22px 0 0 160px;
    background: rgba(0,0,0,0.4);
    width: max-content;
    padding: 3px 6px;
    box-shadow: 0 0 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.9);
    border-radius: 16px;
    text-shadow: 1px 2px 2px rgba(0,0,0,.2);
}

go to the margin and replace 160px with a higher px amount. I'd suggest this -

.cat_bar .desc {
    color: #fff;
    font-size: 12px;
    line-height: 1.5em;
    font-weight: 400;
    margin: -22px 0 0 170px;
    background: rgba(0,0,0,0.4);
    width: max-content;
    padding: 3px 6px;
    box-shadow: 0 0 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.9);
    border-radius: 16px;
    text-shadow: 1px 2px 2px rgba(0,0,0,.2);
}

Sorry me again just noticed this see image

the description doesn't allow for longer category names.

I don't really want to increase the margin again as will look weird on smaller named cats.

Unfortunately that is a flaw in the way I have done the description styling.

I will play around and see if I can find a better solution.

Lets consider this a bug that is being looked into.
