    What is your board's URL? The extra links should have been placed inside of the "More" menu, I don't know why they haven't been on your board.
  2. Stars25 added a post in a topic: Download: Orange Octane   

    The skin was created for 3.1.x and I decided to not upgrade it to work with the latest versions. The download listing clearly states what software version the skin is compatible with.

    Yes, you should be able to disable the color picker in the settings template file. Just change this the "on" to "off" in the style_switcher setting.

    Then to make a certain color default, open up the globalTemplate and find the following:

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{$this->settings['css_base_url']}style_css/{$this->registry->output->skin['_csscacheid']}/blue.css" /> <link rel="alternate stylesheet" type="text/css" title='blue-css' media="screen" href="{$this->settings['css_base_url']}style_css/{$this->registry->output->skin['_csscacheid']}/blue.css" /> <link rel="alternate stylesheet" type="text/css" title='red-css' media="screen" href="{$this->settings['css_base_url']}style_css/{$this->registry->output->skin['_csscacheid']}/red.css" /> <link rel="alternate stylesheet" type="text/css" title='green-css' media="screen" href="{$this->settings['css_base_url']}style_css/{$this->registry->output->skin['_csscacheid']}/green.css" />

    You'll see the first blue is the default then the next blue, green, and red have rel="alternate stylesheet"

    Just delete or comment out the colors you don't want then change your default from "alternate styleseet" to just "stylesheet"

    Yes, it works for 3.3. Other than that one user, no one else has had any issues with it.

    I'm assuming by XY you are referring to any amount of videos? If so, then yes, you set the amount you want in the settings for the block.

    I have replied to your PM.

    Please keep all support issues within the topic.

    The skin was designed with a simple HTML text logo to be used, not some large, fancy image logo.

    And it is impossible to make it so the banner will NEVER affect the navigation bar unless one of the two are positioned using absolute positioning.

    As for the Promenu, Robert Simmons says he can't replicate your issue, I will be trying to replicate it myself in just a moment, but it sounds like it is not a skin issue since another customer has the promenu and it is working normally.
  7. Stars25 added a post in a topic: Download: Variance   

    I see you have centered the navigation menu, am I correct in that you just want the positioning to be moved back up into the black bar?

    For the width changing, are you changing the default width in the CSS or are you referring to entering 60% in the dynamic width changer I created? Because using my width changer, the branding area does in fact inherit that width also. If you are changing the default width in the CSS, you must edit .contentShadow as well as .main_width.

    Adding a background image is simple, just find the body style in the ipb_styles.css file and you'll see it has a background-color. Just change that to:

    background: #1d1d1d url({style_images_url}/YOURIMAGE.ext) repeat-x fixed left top;

    Of course you'll need to edit the name of your image, the repetition you want, if you want it to be fixed or not, and its positioning.

    Could you link me to an example where the user profile is broken when using the Promenu? Because if it works on all the other pages then it should work on those two pages as well because it all has the same globalTemplate. I would first clear your browser's cache on both of those pages and see if it is still broken.
  8. Stars25 added a post in a topic: Download: Variance   

    Yesterday I received a copy of the promenu so I will be able to now make my skins compatible with it in future releases. Usually, designers don't guarantee that their skins will work with all third party addons because it's impossible to make them all compatible. The promenu shouldn't kill the skin other than the promenu buttons not looking to match the skin because on another customer's board with the promenu all I had to do was skin the menu buttons to match and it worked like a charm other than that.

    Since you mentioned that most of your users have Full HD monitors with high resolutions, then you could just modify to positioning elements in the CSS for the navigation menu.

    Find #primary_nav in ipb_styles.css and change the top value to -78px (don't delete the semi-colon when making the change)

    Here it is:

    <a id="logoText" href='{$this->settings['board_url']}' title='{$this->lang->words['go_home']}' rel="home" accesskey='1'>Variance</a>
  10. Stars25 added a post in a topic: Download: Variance   

    It all depends on the user's resolution. At your current width, some users will experience the menu as below yet others with larger monitors/resolutions will not see the menu like that.

    With the default logo text, the applications menu created the "more" button if there wasn't enough space, but I don't know why it isn't on your board. Did you edit the community_app_menu in the CSS or HTML?
  11. Stars25 added a post in a topic: Download: Variance   

    Your image is too wide for the menu to be aligned in the branding bar. You either need to have a smaller in width logo or remove some items from the navigation menu.

    As for reversing the menu, 3.3 made that easy, you can re-arrange menu items in the ACP.
  12. Stars25 added a post in a topic: Download: Variance   

    I see what you mean now. Strange, it was aligned in Chrome when I viewed it before, must of accidentally altered something that affected it in Chrome. I'll include the fix in the next released update.

    As for the easy logo changer, you must revert the defaultHeader template before using it because the default logo is not actually an image file, it is just plain HTML text so the average user could easily change it to say whatever they want.
  13. Stars25 added a post in a topic: Download: Variance   

    When using the Grid layout, it displays a unique icon per forum. To add your own icon per forum, you need to get each icon then rename the icons as the number of the ID for that forum as a PNG file. In the next version update, I will have an option to turn this off to use the skin's default icons used in the category layout.

    Are you talking about the quick nav icon that is not centered? What browser are you using because it's centered in all the ones I viewed on my board. The skin isn't available to guests on your board.

    For the logo size, you just need to increase the height style in the CSS for #branding
  14. Stars25 added a post in a topic: Download: Variance   

    Skin has been updated with some fixes for RTL support. If any more issues are found with RTL please post them here.
  15. Stars25 added a post in a topic: ProMenu Basic   

    I just went through a customer's board of mine that had the promenu and a skin of mine installed so I could make the two compatible.

    One suggestion I have about inserting arrows on list items with menus, I think it would be much better if you put the arrow as an actual image inside of the anchor tag rather than the background of the anchor tag (this is how the IP Content menu does it). I had to completely recreate the CSS for the navigation menu on this skin of mine since it had backgrounds on the anchors (like most skins do). With this, the customer lost the ability of the active tab display because your arrow is the background image and the background could then only be a solid color.

    In summary, my suggestion is to make the layout of your dropdowns match the layout of the IP Content dropdowns and possibly use the standard classes that are already in the skin so there is less to alter for those not proficient in CSS.

    Hey bro, can u let me purchase the Blue Octane skin?

  2. Stars25

    Is the hide sidebar button cut off for anyone else?

    1. Glumbo

      It is

    Where is the promised 3.2 blog?!? :)

    1. Charles


    2. Stars25

      Well not promised, but the staff said there would be a blog every M/W/F.

    3. Charles

      Where did we say that? I hope we didn't.

    4. Stars25

      I will have to look for it, but I am almost 100% sure I saw it unless I was dreaming..

    5. Herofiles ★

      Yupp, first blog post about 3.2, they said what Stars says! Now i cant find it anymore.. -.-

    6. Charles

      We never ever said there would be a blog post ever m/w/f forever.

    7. Stars25

      Yeah but it was said just a couple weeks ago!

    8. Aisha

      Yeah, I remember someone said it in a status update, but it wasn't promised or anything. Still I was looking forward to it. :(

    9. SCS

      Charles said "every M/W/F through end of Feb" on his status update, that's all I've seen (and it doesn't mean forever)

    10. Ryan Ashbrook

      Like SCS said, the only promised blog entries were for February through timed publishing. There are still many more to come, though! Once they are ready, of course.

    Is there a reason why when upgrading to Nexus 1.2.0 that the upgrader said it was Alpha 1?

    1. .Ian

      usually goes through each release during the upgrade.

    2. Stars25

      I don't remember every seeing something like this before though when I updated anything.

    3. Michael

      Yeah, it's always done it that way. Each version could have its own specific SQL to run. You probably just didn't notice this before, or the app you upgraded didn't have any alpha/beta versions with SQL queries to execute.

  5. Stars25

    I think all status updates that ask for support should be deleted like a few hours after they are locked. Because now they are cluttering up statuses that could be useful!

    1. Fishfish0001


    2. iRobbo

      +1 = topic locked! :L

    3. iRobbo

      On a serious note at least others realise not to do it.

    4. Stars25

      That's true, but I'm sick of seeing a gazillion of those locked icons!

    5. Collin S.

      They will eventually weed out, just like locked topics. We don't want people to start posting status updates saying "WHERE ARE MY STATUS UPDATES?!"

    6. Stars25

      Yeah I know they will eventually disappear from the list, but the problem is that is makes statuses that could potentially be full of information or be important to be kicked off the list.

  6. Stars25

    Octane Orange now available! Blue version coming soon!

    1. csm

      I thought this looked great. I'll check your site. I was considering trying to find another skin. How long after IPB makes a change does it take you to reflect that in the design? Good job

    2. Stars25

      It depends on the change. When they release a simple app update then that is usually reflected in my skins within the first day or two. If there is a major change like the new gallery or 3.2 then that will be a little bit longer.

  7. Stars25

    Skin submission has been approved, just waiting on the blog! :)

    4. Shadow82x

      Very nice theme!

    5. alexp999

      Just spent the whole weekend looking for a skin, I loved lots of different bits about lots of different skins, none quite did it as a whole. I couldnt afford a custom skin, but if I could, this would be it. Its perfect! All the little features and design styles I wanted. Will be purchasing pronto. Thank you!

  10. Stars25

    Just submitted a new light skin to the marketplace! :) Waiting for approval!

    1. TheGamingCenter

      Can we have a demo?

    2. Stars25

      There is a demo of it in the listing. Just be patient until then!

    3. TheGamingCenter

      ok :)

    4. Olivier Turbis

      How is it called?

    5. Stars25

      It's called Indentation!

  11. Stars25

    @Matt, could you take a look at our PM conversation? I'm still having the issues with the permissions.

    1. .Brian

      He is sleeping.

    2. Stars25

      Liar! He was last active 26 minutes ago!

    3. TheRevTastic

      And now he is on again!

    4. .Brian

      It's 4AM there...

    5. Mikey

      he never sleeps!

    1. ørret

      At least you get an answer ^^. IPS want feedback but they don't respond to it. It was not like this half a year ago. I think the weekly updates, and all the new apps going on is eating up their time for support etc. I'm quite dissapointed myself.

    2. Mark

      ørret, I must be missing something - you say support time is slipping but right now, you have no open support tickets, and the last one you submitted was resolved in under 24 hours.
      Feel free to drop me a PM if you have any concerns - I'm interested to know what makes you say that :)

      Of course, I'm assuming you're submitting support tickets for support issues, not posting them in the feedback area, as the big box at the top of that page tells you not to do ;)

    3. mat206

      Stars25, to be honest, this is your fault for using the wrong forum. Open a tech support request. Company Feedback is not a support forum.

    4. Stars25

      I'm suggesting that they add checkboxes to the package fields and that they have the option to cost money. In my world that is feedback.

    5. ørret

      Mostly referring to the need for feedback, and when we give you feedback, you won't bother write a line as response. I'm just not bothering anymore, so no need to ask for feedback (it won't be seen anyway) If you want to pick up good ideas I suggest you add a mod to keep track on posts with no response, the problem on these forums is that new topics will fall off the first page pretty quick and be forgotten.

    6. Charles

      If we replied to every feedback topic that's all we would do all day. They are all read though.

    7. ørret

      I love you man.

    1. ørret

      Nice =)

    Thinking about upgrading my iPhone 3G to the iPhone4. Is it worth it?

    1. Matt

      Yes! Faster, better screen, iOS4. You won't be disappointed.

    2. ᴡᴅツ

      no no no no no

    3. Jaggi


    4. Rοb

      Paid £299 for my iPhone4, got £95 for my old Nokia. Am on a 12 month contract and will sell iPhone for a profit when iPhone5 is out. Not hard at all if you're smart :p

    5. DarkGizmo

      It's worth it but be sure you get a case for it that'll fix the antenna issue. :)

    6. Robulosity2

      Upgrading to an iPhone4 is like being a cave man and discovering fire only to be told there's better options a year later..

    Anyone have their hosting with GoDaddy? I called them to increase my memory limit from 64M to 128M but they said there is nothing they can do...

    1. EBrown

      Is it dedicated, virtual dedicated, or shared?

    2. Stars25

      It's shared and they said that's the reason, but there's gotta be something...

    3. EBrown

      Send me a PM. I will tell you how.

    4. Glumbo

      Don't use Godaddy for hosting

    5. I am Freddy G

      I haven't had any problems with godaddy >_<

    6. FadE.


      Edit the .htaccess file in the Drupal root directory. Look for the section:

      # Override PHP settings. More in sites/default/settings.php
      # but the following cannot be changed at runtime.

      and immediately after this add the following line:

      php_value memory_limit 32M

    7. Nick²

      Try adding this to your conf_global.php:

      ini_set('memory_limit', '128M');
