Side Panel

Hello @cabot,
Would it be very difficult/time consuming creating a sidebar for this theme?
Would you consider making a paid version of this theme with a sidebar option?
Thanks in advance!!

Hello,

There are no plans for a paid version of the style, but it's very easy to add a sidebar.

I can prepare the layout for you, and all you have to do is add your own content to the sidebar.
But you'll have to be more specific about what you want.
Should the sidebar be displayed on all pages?
Or only on the index, the list of forums/topics, the posts, or all three?
Other ?

Or, even simpler, you can install the Board3 Portal extension.

It's not possible to display the top 5 posters without an extension.

The easiest way is to install the Board3 Portal extension and make the settings to display the blocks you want only on the left.

Image

What's more, you'll benefit from much greater flexibility, as you can add the blocks you want from the ACP.
The modules in the center and right-hand blocks can be ignored, as only the left-hand column concerns you.

Image

Then simply adapt the style files to :
  • remove the link to the portal
  • adjust the content of the "statistics" block
  • modify the responsive behavior
What I've done for you (it's not possible to attach a zip file here, I've published it on my board).
Unzip this archive and place the folder it contains in the styles/ directory of the Board3 Portal extension.

Result:

Hello cabot,
Thank you for your help! Your screenshot is exactly how I envisioned my board!!
Question please...
domain.com
-ext
--Board3
---Portal
----Styles
-----prosilver
There is no prosilver_fr folder in Styles folder.
I placed your prosilver_fr folder and its contents in Styles folder, no changes.

Deactivate/reactivate the extension and purge the cache. ;)

Hello cabot,
I hate to disturb you again, especially via PM, but still not working.
I'm sure it's because I didn't follow your instructions correctly.
Would you mind please check your PM's?
Thank you cabot!!!

Hello Cabot,
You're amazing, not only in creating such a great theme, but also for your kind, generous and continued patient help; here and via PM!
It finally sank in, how the modules work within Board3 Portal.
I was able to create what I envisioned; with prosilver_fr, and Board3 Portal combined!!!
Thank you again, Cabot, I'm grateful!

I'm glad you understood how the extension works and were able to do what you wanted. :)

Ps: Mazeltof did all the work on the style, I did virtually nothing.
