great work and the larger icons for the forums are a definite plus in PBTECH but possibly not prosilver

Yes, this true. However if you also use prosilver theme, you get double icons.
I have installed PBTech and the larger icons, but I have definite complaints from my senior prosilver users who don't like the double/ larger icons they are now getting :o oh well

Thanks for great style!
But it would be nice, if the rows can be clickable, not only the text (I know, there is also link to the last post in the forum, and maybe it could be a problem).
Like on this picture:

Image

I've tried to apply a part of this MOD:
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/ ... pic/101486
In viewforum_body.html of PBTech:
after

Code: Select all

<!-- IF 
topicrow.S_POST_STICKY --> sticky<!-- ENDIF --><!-- IF topicrow.S_TOPIC_REPORTED --> reported<!-- ENDIF --
>"
add

Code: Select all

onclick="window.location.href='<!-- IF topicrow.S_UNREAD_TOPIC -->{topicrow.U_NEWEST_POST}<!-- ELSE -->
{topicrow.U_LAST_POST}<!-- ENDIF -->'"
But now it's clickable only small area, not at least the whole forum icon (i don't have good coding skills). :(

I think it could be nice improvement of the PBTech base concept.

sounds possible! ;) also, just noticed the responsive capabilities of PB TECH, what happens is, the RECENT TOPICS shove over to the top of the index page entirely, just as in Prosilver, very impressive! :D the responsive process on PB TECH seems to be just as good as on Prosilver!

For the PB TECH icons.....

For the next release I'll change it so it will display normal forum status icons if there is no custom icon defined.
sounds great but this does not download a zip file

it downloads a .7z which my Windows doesn't know :oops: I'm running Windows7

Try Total Commander or WinRAR. ;)
If you want something free, you could try PeaZIP - many archive format support and many translations.

cheers nfsmaniac, :mrgreen: WinRAR works good

SO if you have these fine icons kindly supplied by PayBas, (and they are great!) I believe it would look better for your Prosilver users as pointed out by another member, that the "double icons" situation be addressed

the following code changes do that, in prosilver's forum_list_body

[SAVE A COPY of FORUMLIST_BODY]
[FIND]
<dl class="icon {forumrow.FORUM_IMG_STYLE}">

[REPLACE WITH}
<dl<!-- IF not forumrow.FORUM_IMAGE --> class="icon {forumrow.FORUM_IMG_STYLE}"<!-- ENDIF -->>

[CLEAR THE CACHE]

now you have JUST the icons supplied for PB TECH in both styles :D much better

Firstly, I just want to say that thank you so much for creating such a wonderful theme for phpbb is fantastic. I love the simplistic but yet very effective look.

I do have some noob questions, so please dont hate. I tried the search feature but i wasnt able to find anything that assisted me with this. :(

I was wondering are we allowed to customise the background and the header? What is the ideal size of an image for a new forum?

Cheers heaps :)

There isn't one. I sliced and diced the current logo together. I don't have a font or anything ;).

This is tricky, because there are numerous elements inside of the forum row container, some of which are links themselves (subforums, links inside forum descriptions, etc.), so it could result in unexpected behavior.

Basically the only way to do this without breaking HTML validation is by using JS like you said. I haven't experimented with this yet though, so I'll have to get back to you on this.

You can change any part of the style you want. You can simply replace the images included in the style to change the look.

As for forum icons, I think anything up to 50x50 px will work just fine.

Sorry for going off-topic, but do you guys see a horizontal scrollbar at the end of the first post? The image attachment is causing it, but I thought this was already addressed and fixed before.

It can be fixed if you change the following in content.css:

Code: Select all

.postbody img.postimage {
    max-width: 100%;
}
To:

Code: Select all

.postbody img.postimage {
    max-width: 99%;
}
Or:

Code: Select all

.postbody img.postimage {
    box-sizing: border-box;
    max-width: 100%;
}

First and foremost, what a superb style, kudos to you for that.

Could I ask PayBas, how do members know there are new posts in the forums from the index?

Image

The pipe and tobacco forums both have new posts in them by other users but I am seeing no indicator letting me know there are new posts in them, I know there are new posts there for they are showing in your recent topics extension.

Is there something I am supposed to do manually to make an indicator show!?

The new topic indicator is the Paper icon next to the "(Topics: 2 | Posts:8) Image"

Image means new topic or post.

Image means nothing new.

Thank you for that reply, I thought they might be it and was hoping there would be something more obvious for members to see, right so, I shall work from there and make it a little clearer.

Thanks for pointing it out. I will investigate. I think this is an actual problem with prosilver as well.

I'm planning on making the indicator a bit clearer in the next update ;).
