Updating Crip Zone Themes
« on: February 11, 2019, 01:42:06 AM »
I started working on updating the themes when the RC1 pre-release was in Github. A few days later they released RC1 so I figured I should start over in cause of any major code changes that may affect my work. RC1 does contain a number of bugs according to others. I've only found a few but have not really looked for any just yet...too busy working on the themes.

I 've been working on one theme but had problems and then switched to trying another hoping it would be easier. After a few days I was informed that I needed to disable minify JS anf jQuery in the admin while updating themes then things started falling into place. Here's the original theme using SMF 2.0.15:

And here's what I'm working on in 2.1 RC1:

https://skhilled.com/smfrc1/index.php

There's still a ways to go before completion but I'm getting there and learning a lot!  8) I may even change a couple of things to keep up with the times but they will mostly stay the same.

The OrangeLine theme is nice and easy on the eyes, good work Steve.  :thumbup:

Thanks! I don't think I've got much farther to go with this particular one. This is something I've been wanting to do for some time but have been far too busy to get started. I wish I had more time when Maxx was around cause he was great at it! There's a ton of themes to do! LOL

Well, got the home page looking good! :) Just having problems with the topics pages. But shouldn't be long before it's done...I hope. LOL Once I get the theme right I'll make upshrinks, etc. for TP. I may also convert these themes for myBB...after I get the SMF ones on track.

Thanks, guys! Been spending most of my time doing this for the past week or so and not much else. Currently, I'm stuck at a few parts. :P

Once I get one part looking the way I want it inadvertently screws up something else cause the code is connected together somehow. LOL

This reminded me that we don't have any of Jeff's themes installed here on OFF, so I snagged Ornament and uploaded it.  :thumbup:

Got over my largest hurdle which was category item alignment and height. I've also added the posting icons which SMF chose to remove for 2.1. Have a look, it now has a similar look (minus the images and colors) to most of Jeff's themes including this one:

As opposed to the default, Cruves2:
