Hi, i'm running vanilla 2.1. Currently, i'm embeding the forum with my wordpress site. as you know, version 2.1 is new, and there arent much themes that work with this new version of vanilla, especially when embding it to wordpress. The default Embed Friendly theme that came with this version didn't work either. I used to use the Brand Friendly theme for version 2.0.18.10, it works perfectly with my site. I've just upgraded my forum to 2.1, and now none of the themes seems to work well with this new version.

I would like to know if anyone interested in making a theme like BrandFriendly for my site that works with version 2.1, and how much would you charge for it?

Thanks.

    give me a link and I can better tell you what is involved .

  • vrijvlindervrijvlinder Papillon-Sauvage MVP

    Most themes only need a little help to work... just use that theme you had, and link me and I will see how to fix it.

  • http://giesu.net/forum running embed friendly.

  • vrijvlindervrijvlinder Papillon-Sauvage MVP

    yea, please use the theme you liked that you say does not work , the brand friendly. That is the one you thought went well right?

    Any way to make the Body better:

    Add this to the custom.css

    #Body{
    padding:10px;
    }

    hi, it works ok with the padding now. is there anyway to modify the category color or hightlight it, so it doesnt match the post color? thanks.

    Good, glad that helped.

    Not sure I understand , the category in the categories list ? The category link in the discussions list ?

    Maybe take a screenshot of the things you want so I can understand better.

  • i'll come back to this later. sorry for bothering you so much, but here's another question i want to ask, i just tried a theme called Bootstrap, it's looking nice, but everything seems to crunch together, is there anyway i can expand it to fit nicely? thanks. http://giesu.net/forum

  • hi, just modified using width: 100%; still the same.

  • vrijvlindervrijvlinder Papillon-Sauvage MVP

    ok, add it like this this should work.

    width: 100%!important;

  • wow, that did the trick! thanks.

  • hi, i post a screenshot of where -- when i drag the mouse over a category next to the post, it's so light, it's blank when i'm not hovering over it. i use bootstrap theme with "readable" theme option. which section do i edit to change the background of the hover? sorry, i'm really new to this css stuff.

  • vrijvlindervrijvlinder Papillon-Sauvage MVP

    Try this

    Tag, .Item .Meta .MItem.Category a {
    background-color: #007AFF;
    }
    Tag, .Item .Meta .MItem.Category a:hover {
    background-color: #7CBBFF;
    }
    

    If you learn how to use a web inspector like chrome web inspector or safari web inspector or even firebug web inspector you could do all this yourself and more ....I don't mind helping you. I prefer to post it here instead of PM because it may help others at another time.

  • thanks, that work great! i'm not here to bother anyone or offend anyone. it's just that i'm really new to this, and i dont have much time to learn, sometimes, i just dont know where to start. i'm running a non-profit website, i dont make any money from this, i dont advertise on my site, there are a lot of things i have to take care myself, i rely on others' knowledge & kindness to help me out. someone once said ...if you want to figure something out, it's the matter of "time" or "money". i agreed. it's not that i dont want to learn, but i really dont have much time to learn a new language for now. a user here said to me ...best thing is i pay someone to do it for me, that's why i'm offering to pay for a theme. i think the things i asked for help are just lil things, but for me, it's a big thing, because i dont know where to start. anyway, if you require a donation or anything like that, just let me know. i hope i dont bother you much.

    here's the next question ... i installed your plugin "GuestBigButton", as shown in the screenshot below, it display well, but too close to the signin & register buttons, how do i move it down a lil bit?

    my second question is, how do i delete the word "Categories" on top of the "All Categories" ? (also in screenshot).

    thanks.

  • vrijvlindervrijvlinder Papillon-Sauvage MVP

    ok for the button

    .Button, .NavButton, .PhotoWrapLarge .ChangePicture {
    margin-top: 5px;
    }
    

    for the Title Categories

    .Box.BoxCategories h4{
    display:none;
    }
    

    By the way , if you use a web inspector you don't need to learn a new language. You just edit right there and can see what works or not. That is what I use. I right click on the part I want to edit and select inspect element and it shows you where that code is and what css rules it has.

    sinner
  • hi, i'm learning web inspector like you introduced. can you teach me more on this? for example, i want the text of the post to be smaller, i use web inspector to view it, then where do i view where it's at and edit it in my css file? (screenshot attached). thanks.

  • vrijvlindervrijvlinder Papillon-Sauvage MVP

    Ok good, look at the column on the right , notice it says Style and below that it saus element.style { you double click on there and add the css

    or find the css rule for what you selected in your image you selected h1 so look in the right hand column and you will see the firs rule after element.style area is h1

    To edit or add you double click right after the last ; and add your rule or edit one that exists . I am sure I posted a tutorial on how to use the editor.

    Once you figure it out you will be able to this easier .

    that would be a locale thing. I think these should work just change the spanish to your language and put them in your locale file

    $Definition['%s comment'] = '%s comentario';
    $Definition['%s comments'] = '%s comentarios';
    
    $Definition['discussion'] = 'discusión';
    $Definition['%s views'] = '%vistas';
