I really like this style. I am personalizing it a bit and am having a hard time. I am trying to make the white area behind the forums a semi-transparent color. I have the corners, header and footer done, but cannot figure out how to get the area inside the borders the matching color. I can make a semi-transparent png to match it, I just cannot figure out where to put it to make it work. If you could help me out, I would really appreciate it.

I am completely clueless and I am gonna try to build a few web sites. Please don't get too agitated if my questions appear dumb.

That part is the main body, which is just a bg1/2/3 color FFFFFF, You can set the opacity with this: opacity: 0.5;

I have submitted a minor update, which I call Blue Fog. Instead of red links, I changed the color to Blue and did some minor corrections to the text-shadow effect to look better on chrome. Internet explorer still doesn't support text-shadow, so you won't see the text glowing effect if your using that browser.

You can edit the colours in Bl@ck/theme/colours.css

It's pretty simple to edit them if you have an understanding of css.

Hi sevenalive, I love your theme and have been using it for ages.

With the recent update to 3.0.8 I want to use the Q&A captcha but it's not displaying with even the latest version of Bl@ck. A search of the support forums indicates I should ask you to update or do the updates manually. Well, I tried doing them manually (according to viewtopic.php?t=880735) but it is still not displaying.

This is the text I see where I should get Q&A captcha:
To prevent automated registrations the board requires you to enter a confirmation code. The code is displayed in the image you should see below. If you are visually impaired or cannot otherwise read this code please contact the %sBoard Administrator%s.


Confirmation code:
{ RECAPTCHA_EXPLAIN }

Are you able to help me - either by doing an update or letting me know how I could fix this?

Thanks.

Re: Feedback - Header Question

by cedras » Wed Jul 20, 2011 2:41 pm

I have installed your style, which we like VERY much, and I've replaced the site_logo.png file with our own logo, but I need to eliminate the black URL address on the header (unnecessary and detracts from the look of the banner). Can you tell me what I need to change to fix this? Here is a screenshot of what I'm talking about:

And, if I can get that sorted out, is there a setting that adjusts the width of the site_logo? I created it wider in PhotoShop, but it's compacted into the space you've created for the original style site logo.

Thanks!

The size of the site_logo.png is set in /styles/Bl@ck/imageset/imageset.cfg where the logo resides.

To remove the text your are referring to. It's the site title and description in overall_header.html in the template folder.

Find and remove:

Code: Select all

<h1>{SITENAME}</h1> <p>{SITE_DESCRIPTION}</p>

Thanks very much, Seven Alive ... almost there.

I removed the URL text from the header. Here is a screen shot:

Image

By removing that text, I've lost the search function in the header and the text that normally runs BELOW the header is now in the header space. Also, now the entire page is narrower -- not just the header -- so before I did anything else I wanted to come back to you for your advice on how to restore the header appearance and the width of the page/header.

If the width of the page is still set in the theme.cfg file, I find that file in the Theme folder, right? The site_logo.png is located in the Imageset folder, but there is no theme.cfg file in that folder ...

I appreciate your patience with these questions. I'm just trying to be careful so I don't screw anything up. :-)

You must of made a editing error in overall_header, just redownload the style and replace overall header or use a diff tool to find out where you went wrong. The cfg file only controls image sizes. The width of the whole style is dynamic to your browser window, to edit that, you would need to edit borders.css

Thanks, I'm quite sure I DID do something wrong because I went about it the hard way. Your instructions were perfect and it worked beautifully.

Love the new style SO much, if you wanted to check it out, please do [url]allforone-oneforall.net[/url]

Seven,

I have installed and reinstalled this theme after deleting it from my site and I've downloaded it from a few locations so where do I download the correct version to follow your instructions?

I am using phpbb3 ver 3.0.10.

The theme.cfg only contains 4 lines that aren't commented out are:

name = Bl@ck
copyright = &copy; Seven ALive
version = 1.2.3
parse_css_file = 1

There are no sizes mentioned?

I quote the following:

And, if I can get that sorted out, is there a setting that adjusts the width of the site_logo? I created it wider in PhotoShop, but it's compacted into the space you've created for the original style site logo.

The size of the site_logo.png is set in the theme.cfg where the logo resides.

The size of the logo is in the imageset.cfg so I would like to know where the final version of this theme is located.

Thanks,
