  2. Thank heavens you're back to help again Pete! It's a shame to read this, but it's sadly true. I have some feedback as well if that's okay. Often, lots of the themes have really nice artwork and immediate visual impact, but when you look closer or start using them for a few days on your site, that's when the annoying issues really come to light that really should have been spotted before the theme got released. You ideally need to do some more QA testing! I don't use the majority of themes because they are so much different from the dark crime drama 'theme' of my main community, so I rely on the seasonal Themes. However I just don't understand why so many of the themes continue to have so many issues, it seems that often they are the same ones, time and time again or that are broken in the same areas on several themes. Remember last year I made that list of issues that routinely crop up in several themes? I thought if you are using a framework, they could be fixed more easily. The broken category footers... ... are a regular thing, but how can they be missed in so many themes, especially after we've already reported them? Here's a fresh one though! I'd spent quite some time trying to figure out why one of my members kept complaining she was missing new content, it was no longer showing unread items in bold in her Activity Stream. It turned out to be the CSS in recent Halloween themes. In the default theme I was using, new unread items appear in bold, but not in the Halloween theme. The themes are also often absolutely huge. Hallows Eve and Happy Halloween despite looking great were over 12MB page size on my site and when you look at them, they are bloated with unnecessary vendor CSS code for old and outdated browsers. with HTML 5 and CSS3, things like box-shadows and linear gradients are supported as standard on modern, safe browsers. Take a look at this example: background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #454300 0%, #252200 100%) !important; background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%,#454300), color-stop(100%,#252200)) !important; background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #454300 0%,#252200 100%) !important; background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #454300 0%,#252200 100%) !important; background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #454300 0%,#252200 100%) !important; background: linear-gradient(to bottom, #454300 0%,#252200 100%) !important; -moz-box-shadow: inset 1px 1px 0px 0px rgba(93,88,0,0.3) !important; -webkit-box-shadow: inset 1px 1px 0px 0px rgba(93,88,0,0.3) !important; box-shadow: inset 1px 1px 0px 0px rgba(93,88,0,0.3) !important; border: 1px solid #000 !important; } #elProfileStats { background: #dbc19d !important; background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #f8dfbc 0%, #866b44 100%) !important; background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%,#f8dfbc), color-stop(100%,#866b44)) !important; background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #f8dfbc 0%,#866b44 100%) !important; background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #f8dfbc 0%,#866b44 100%) !important; background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #f8dfbc 0%,#866b44 100%) !important; background: linear-gradient(to bottom, #f8dfbc 0%,#866b44 100%) !important; border: 1px solid #000 !important; color: #000 !important; text-shadow: 0px 0px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.2) !important; } a:hover { color: #eb821b !important; text-shadow: 0px 1px 1px #000 !important; text-decoration: none; transition: all 0.35s ease-in-out !important; -webkit-transition: all 0.35s ease-in-out !important; -moz-transition: all 0.35s ease-in-out !important; -o-transition: all 0.35s ease-in-out !important; -ms-transition: all 0.35s ease-in-out !important; } I don't think the CSS has to have the !important tag on every line either. It just causes more problems and more more bloat. I've also found in Halloween theme that it is specifies to use Ringbearer font, yet the 2 Google Fonts imported are different, Taviraj and Triong. Also, for a performance improvement, these two separate requests when both fonts could be requested at the same time in one request. /* Fonts */ @import 'https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Taviraj'; @import 'https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Trirong'; @font-face { font-family: 'ringbearermedium'; src: url({resource="ringm-webfont.eot" app="core" location="fonts"}); src: url({resource="ringm-webfont.eot?#iefix" app="core" location="fonts"}) format('embedded-opentype'), url({resource="ringm-webfont.woff2" app="core" location="fonts"}) format('woff2'), url({resource="ringm-webfont.woff" app="core" location="fonts"}) format('woff'), url({resource="ringm-webfont.ttf" app="core" location="fonts"}) format('truetype'), url({resource="ringm-webfont.svg#ringbearermedium" app="core" location="fonts"}) format('svg'); font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; } A couple of other bugbears are themes packaged with a logo saying IBSkin.com in the actual logo as would be correct on this website, but which means on every other site they are to be used it won't match the name of the clients actual site, and therefore must be edited with the .psd, which many don't have the knowledge, time or software to use. I also don't understand why your time is spent theming the AdminCP, it was a ridiculous idea on IPS's part in the first place. I don't think anyone logs in AdminCP to see a theme! Or stays for long enough to enjoy it! Usually there are only 1 or 2 people with Admin access! I just feel your valuable time and limited resources could be better utilised. After all themes are best when you have them showcased on the front end! I'm not sure why there are so many really obscure or outdated themes being re-released instead of getting the more modern, higher demand ones working better, and developing new themes? I'd love to see Sherri's artistic talent shine again in some new Christmas Themes this year, but hopefully less cartoony though! Thanks for reading!
  3. Today
  4. We have never tested the Group Name Indicator on any theme and at moment i am unable to look this as trying patch up all theme for current list plugins that we do support, i should add the plugin to be supported for end of November eariler December.
  5. What I have noticed, the Group Name Indicator is not displayed. All styles except Seascape 4.4.8 & Here Comes Santa 4.4.8 will be displayed.
  6. These are the new problems, that was not the mistake. It was about the Kategrie Links. They lead to the index of the forum, which they still do after the update.
  7. Unfortunately, the problem was not resolved, quite in the opposite direction, now the pictures are gone from the games ... See by fanfan
  8. Yesterday
  9. Fix for "Here's Come Santa Theme". In The Here Comes Santa Theme. Edit Theme's CSS. Find ibtheme.css Find: .Member { background: url({resource="member.png" app="core" location="team_icons"}) no-repeat !important; display: block !important; text-align: center !important; height: 40px !important; /** HEIGHT OF YOUR IMAGE **/ margin: 0px 0px 0px 22px !important; } Change to: .Member { background: url({resource="member.png" app="core" location="team_icons"}) no-repeat !important; display: block !important; text-align: center !important; height: 56px !important; /** HEIGHT OF YOUR IMAGE **/ margin: 0px 0px 0px 22px !important; } Making a simple change to the image height so the Member Team Icon will full display. Before Change: After Change:
  10. still have users using IE 11 that's the problem looks like I have sorted it, re-installed theme did the trick. not sure why the old one on my forum and this one shows incorrect but sorted
  11. doesn't always go for me the same way, sorry. I reloaded the xlm file. Still the same problem
  12. The xml same as one downloaded i also fixed group as noticed should be in premium group.
  13. hi here is not going for me can you give me the xlm thank you I paid the theme
  14. Edge is more updated vs IE 11 as Microsoft know its pointless, never been fan any the browsers to many issues to name.
  15. its the same when viewing the list of topics but this time member name is out of line. Just realised this is with using IE 11, Edge is ok
  16. Hi Hope your all well just updated to 4.4.8 and everything went ok but just spotted a slight issue. I will try and explain, when looking at the forum index the title of a topic is not aligned correctly and there is now a gap. The issue is on this forum as well as my own, could you provide me with a fix/edits so I can correct it on my forum. Thank you
  17. For Here Comes Santa i needs update that just about to upload as fixes issues with arcade, member icons.
  18. I too am having the same problem with Here Come Santa theme. No Team Icon is displayed. CSS Code: Resource Info: ========================================================================================================================== BUG: On the IBTheme Site, the Team_Icon also isn't fully being displayed. Bottom is cut off.
  19. Sorry, just stand on the hose, what file?
  20. Send the file to my PM box I take look soon as, see if item I can fix if not I add ticket to ips see if Matt could look into error.
  21. From designer mode, I have no idea. I'm also very grateful for the help here.
  22. Last week
  23. The group via loads globally vs using the custom code we use, the issue you have with the image is not theme issue, but if correct it's way the back end code not syncing correctly. The way normal fix it turn designer mode on see if image correctly stored in ID file, but not good if site live as eats resources.
  24. I did the following, uninstalled and reinstalled the style. Now it is synonymous me indicated. How can I disable the group ad only in posts? Since I have formatted username and want to keep the index? The whole thing would look better if the group ad did not exist. As well as here, if the red admin were gone, everything would look better. Know me a bit with css, that's all.
  25. Ok not sure do much do know much about designer mode ?
  26. Yes, but no users in there, because I still set it up.
  27. That seem be bugs again with resources this was around back in 4.1, 4.2. fixed in 4.3.x but not seen issue in 4.4.x Matt from IPS has fixed few times as he normal one does that fix or bfarber as nothing wrong with the css, is this theme on live site ?
  28. Okay, I followed the steps. I also inserted it in css. Only it is not displayed in the forum.
