Dreadnought Theme [ support topic ]

Recommended Posts

First of all, congratulations talman for this theme which seems to be well designed and very configurable and which I am testing before its installation on the site of a large community.
However, I have some basic questions for which I have not found an answer:

  1. How to modify forum icons?
  2. Can I put different icons for each forum?
  3. How to change the color of a forum icon depending on whether there are new unread posts or not.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Best regards,
Jean-Philippe

Hello, 

 

1. Do you mean the default forum icons? if so it can be done with a custom css, i can provide help on that.

2. You can upload your own forum icons here ACP > Forums.

3. You have two color settings in front-end colors tab for that ? 

 

Have a good day,

Taman,

Taman,
I'm about to finish (re)configuring our existing website with your theme, but there are a few details I would appreciate some help with:
1. Is it possible to reduce the height of the main navigation bar (not the font size, only the height of the bar).
2. Same thing for the secondary Navigation Bar
3. How to change the background color of the search field (by default #1B1C21) and the color of its border.

Thank you very much for your help.

Best regards ... and congratulations again for this fantastic theme !

Yes, with custom css

 2. Same thing for the secondary Navigation Bar

There is no height on secondary navbar. it is auto and depends on your navigation menus

Just now, Jean-Philippe said:

 3. How to change the background color of the search field (by default #1B1C21) and the color of its border.

 You can change the quick search filed background color in Header & Navigation tab. the border color by default is same as background color only with some opacity to separate it. but you can use a custom css

 

I can help with small css customization's ?

Hello @TAMAN,

I just updated the theme from 2.1.8 to 2.1.9 and I encountered a small problem.

My forum icons are default after update (using font awesome icons).

The codes from custom.css are still there untouched, but they aren't read anymore.

Example:

[data-forumid="39"] .fa-comments:before {
    content: "\f059";
}

[data-forumid="96"] .fa-comments:before {
    content: "\f1ae";
}

 

What can be the problem and how to make them work again on the new version?

Thanks for your time.

Hello,

 

No sure why

but, try this 

[data-forumid="39"] .fa-comments:before {
    content: "\f059" !important;
}

[data-forumid="96"] .fa-comments:before {
    content: "\f1ae" !important;
}

@TAMAN I tried searching for this but im getting this error "Template core/global/global/includeJS is throwing an error. This theme may be out of date. Run the support tool in the AdminCP to restore the default theme."

Some things to note:

  • Ive updated to the latest version of IPB 4.3
  • Im using the latest update of dreadnought 2.1.9
  • I manually deleted the lines of code you said to in your readme
    • ta_base and ta_swiperslider

Here are some pics of where the error is located:

any ideas on a quick fix for this?

I love this theme its been awesome.

Hello,

You seem to have modified  includeJS  template 

Please revert it back to default by clicking the "Revert" button

If you have modified other templates then revert them back as well, because modified templates will remain same when you update your themes or your site

Tysm. BTW, this may be a noob question, but are modded templates identified by the little "x" as seen circled below?

Yes, but that is "M" not X ? 

You can select this option to list all the modified templates and revert them back to default  ?

BUT, Do not Revert the globalTemplate & navBar template. 

AND any templates inside ta_template group

If you have made changes in CSS templates then do the same revert BUT not any templates in custom group

Does it work with 4.3.5?

Yes. 

P.S. only 2 templates modified  in this theme i would say %98 the theme will always work with latest ips versions ? and if it is required to update i usually update themes the same day as the new ips version comes ?

Great theme, I love it. 

Is there an easy way to check which colours are for which setting? 

I know sometimes I can use inspect but doesn't always work. 

If not I can see me asking A LOT of questions
