Bugs
  • 1.) A CSS issue w/ MSIE6+ and my Navigation Bars.
    2.) A few more colors have to be changed from the default proSilver blue.
    • 2 a.) Tabs when posting are blue.
    3.) Need Rounded Corners.
    4.) Need "wrap" div returned.
How-To Change Header
  • 1.) Inside the "aphoticumbra_aoc\contrib\aoc_header_background_source\" folder you will find three image source files.
    • a.) aoc_header_background_fireworks.png - Fireworks Source File
      b.) aoc_header_background_photoshop.psd - PhotoShop Source File
      c.) aoc_header_background_jpeg.jpg - Blank JPEG File
    2.) Please alter any of the above headers in your desired fashion and replace "aphoticumbra_aoc\theme\imagesaoc_header_background.jpg" with your new image.

    3.) The CSS for the header can be found in "colors.css"

    Code: Select all

    #aoc_header {
    	background-color: #000000; 
    	background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/aoc_header_background.jpg");
    	background-position: top center;
    	background-repeat: no-repeat;
    }

Great man, I've set up your theme on our site,

I'll continue visiting this thread. Although i gotta admit the first theme was far more fancy, I liked it better, but this one is very nice too.
But out of curiosity, why did you change your mind regarding the basis? Was the other too hard to debug or?

Nice!!
Finally its out :)
On the previous theme you made you captured the rounded corners. Is it ment to be or is it just bugged?

That's very nice. Any chance of a more bloody Conan'ish one in the future?

Rounded corners are coming in an updated release. I just pushed this one out to get it out to everyone.

Code: Select all

#aoc_header {
	height: 164px;
}

#aoc_header_main {
	height: 118px;
}

.aoc_header_bar {
	height: 23px;
}
( 2 x 'aoc_header_bar' ) + 'aoc_header_main' = 'aoc_header'

So just fix the math.

Exactly, and I like proSilver more. This one will be easier to maintain.

I really love and apprecitiate this style, I use it on one of my live sites.

Question.. you know those little circled buttons on lower right of pages? (circles with the triangle, that should bounce you to the top of the page when you click on them) Do they not work in this version, or have I screwed something up??

Nope, I think you are correct. It's trying to take you to an element named "#wrap", but "#wrap" doesn't exist anymore. Good catch, will add in updated. Thanks!

Thanks, chandlerou, it would be nice to have it back. All little things (such as the #wrap) are nice to have. It gives that "polished" feel.
