Stop user select the Prosilver theme?

Post by volgograd » Thu Nov 06, 2014 2:34 pm

I don't want users to select the Prosilver theme because some MODs look strange. No Logo no styling. But I dont want to uninstall prosilver because its good to have.
What should I do?

You can 'disable' it without uninstalling it.

ok I see.
I think I could delete the HTML code to change, for the user. Then change in ACP or database if Admin needs the other theme.

But I have Artodia mobile theme and another Prosilver based theme.
So users may change from one to the other, so change option is necessary.

My solution: I will change the "alias" of Prosilver to "Unsupported non-Russian theme". Nobody will chose it.

The theme selection isn't done by HTML. All the pages in phpbb are controlled by php, which loads templates and sends the information to the template. It'd require some php modifying to stop users selecting it. Though I find it hard to understand why you wouldn't want users to select prosilver if it's available. All MOD's created have to work with prosilver so I don't get how they can look strange.

If you only want them to use one style then choose it as default and set the override user to yes in the board settings page of the admin panel. that will make everyone use that one style and they won't even have a choice to see any other styles etc.

if you are using more than one style that you want them to be able to choose from but just not prosilver, then deactivate it and it will not show up in the choices.

Robert - I am not sure which to do?

I want all laptop and PC users to use my default theme.
But for mobile users, and small tablets it changes from the MOD to Artodia.
So I can not "override" users because then the Mobile users don't get the mobile theme.
Right?

There wouldn't be much point to an "override" setting if users could still change styles with it enabled.

Why not fix your mistakes in installing the MODs in prosilver rather than trying to work around the errors?

Nooooooooooooooo it took me so long! I had enough of MODs. Everything is fine in my normal tema. I disabled Prosilver, nobody can select it.
