Hi, I've just seen in the OP that Prosilver must be active - I've had it deactivated (but still installed) for some time now and haven't noticed any issues. Could there be things I'm missing, or is it fine to leave it deactivated?

Cheers

How do you change the background image in the header? I tried changing the picture in /theme/images/bg.jpeg but it still shows the old image.

I purged the caches, have load settings setup so it should automatically load, deactivated style, nothing worked.

Quick question,

With this style, I don't seem to be able to see my custom profile fields in viewtopic pages under the users avatars. Not 100% sure its the styles fault (as its my only style) although it is a fresh install of the board so not sure what else it could be! - Any ideas?

They are moved to the dropdown menu. Try clicking on a user's avatar (or username). It should show a popup with all the info.

Great theme! Really solid work so thank you for that. I have couple of questions though, and please bare with me, I'm a phpbb noob..

My previous website, which the forum I'm starting is based on contentwise, had a white and red theme with some dark grey in it. So I thought I would possibly use your theme for the forum I'm starting, but change the colors. Changing the links etc. is no problem, but I can't seem to find where the buttons like "new topic" are located. I can only find some of the other icons. Could you point me in the right direction?

Also, is there a way to use some of the prosilver themed buttons in the pbtech? If so, how?

The colors for the buttons are defined here: https://github.com/PayBas/style-PBTech/ ... #L648-L689

The actual icons that are used are defined here: https://github.com/PayBas/style-PBTech/ ... 1462-L1470

Not really. What you have to understand is that PBTech is actually a child style for PBWoW 3 (but released separately). What this means is that it uses all the CSS of PBWoW 3, and puts an additional layer on top of that (PBTech).

So some CSS rules are located in pbwow.css, and the others in stylesheet.css.

Because PBWoW 3 replaces all the CSS of the prosilver buttons to use FontAwesome (instead of .gif icons), most prosilver buttons will no longer work.

But it should be pretty easy to add more buttons.

No wonder I wasn't able to find the images for those perticular buttons ;) But yeah, that made a lot of sense and I got it working as I wanted. Thanks a lot!

great work but the first thing that hit me when I installed it was the "missing icons"

these are very attractive and to see the index page with just white space where the icons could be is such a shame

I think the "Read Me" might have details on that but is there a really simple guide to having "the icons that are shown in the demo" I would love that :lol:

found this after searching on http://pbwow.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=11714

Yes, this true. However if you also use prosilver theme, you get double icons.
so, a problem if you do have both styles? I'll have a go :P

are the icons at PBTech_icons_psd.7z? I can't find them? are they in PBTech_icons_psd.7z? how do you extract them then? :D

You can get them here, under "additional files".

http://pbwow.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11649#p21680

For the next release I'll change it so it will display normal forum status icons if there is no custom icon defined.
