    Advanced Footer [ Support topic ]

    Your custom css worked and it looks much better like that. Thank you! But rows are enabled, yes. Will send you credentials. Edit: Taman resolved my issue. Turned out the Magnum theme just needed to be reinstalled again, and for some reason something became corrupted in my global template the first time I tried to reinstall it. ADVANCED FOOTER IS WORKING 🙂

    Advanced Footer [ Support topic ]

    I just doublechecked, and as far as I know I followed each of those instructions exactly. Have been repeatedly emptying my cache. I'm willing to settle for the native footer in Magnum -- but I would lose my Twitter feed or it seems the ability to use raw HTML such as to embed Twitter with raw html. However, this little bit in custom.css is no longer doing its trick to get rid of the dotted lines and make them solid: .af_Container .linksBlo .ipsDataList li, .af_Container .articlesBlo li {border-bottom: 1px solid;} Maybe that's because this only ever applied to the advanced footer, but it would be nice to get rid of those dotted lines in the native footer in the absence of the advanced footer.

    Advanced Footer [ Support topic ]

    Hello, first off I am a big Taman fan. Having a problem though getting the advanced footer to work or even be visible. I must be missing something very basic since this seems to be working for others. I had the Magnum theme and Advanced Footer plugin and left site alone for a while. Came back today and did forum upgrades and then the colors/contrast/everything essentially broke. So, I installed the latest Magnum theme and lost all customization. This fixed all of the contrast issues from the upgrade and I've updated most of the configs by now. Unfortunately, as would be predicted, the advanced footer was no longer working right -- but I did read this support thread and do understand that it's an application now. However, I've tried installing/reinstalling the app (after uninstalling the plugin) and now I cannot get anything to appear as an advanced footer. For a short moment I got one column to work but cannot reproduce that. I've been trying every tweak I could think of on the settings but so far not getting anything, so unless I can resolve this it's goodbye to my advanced footer, which makes me sad because it was perfect for its purpose and also gave me a Twitter feed. I'm on IPS cloud hosting using the latest versions: IPB 4.3.4.

    Advanced Footer

    I am happy with how this turned out after some tinkering and gracious help from Taman. I liked how the red arrow icons turned out. I did that with: <ul class="ipsDataList"> <h3>Site Links</h3> <li><a href="Example.com"><i class="fa fa-caret-right" aria-hidden="true"></i><strong>Link Title</strong></a></li> </ul> What specifically gave the red arrows was. Not sure if 'aria-hidden="true"' is necessary or not: <i class="fa fa-caret-right" aria-hidden="true"></i> Also, using a trick that I dug out of the support thread, the default dotted lines was replaced by adding this to custom.css: .af_Container .linksBlo .ipsDataList li, .af_Container .articlesBlo li {border-bottom: 1px solid;} This was the final outcome: I initially had problems getting this plugin to work at all for reasons that I can't explain (was told that the fields were empty by default) but Taman was quick to help me get it fixed. This plugin works with all themes. As a note, I disabled the footer on my site's theme which is Magnum (also by Taman and highly recommended).

    I dropped that into custom.css and it worked beautifully. You're a genius.

    Thanks Taman. Much easier to see with a darker color. However, the logo text is still pretty hard to see with thin letters. I tried putting <strong > </strong > tags into various parts of the global template but that did not work. Is the template to complicated for a simple fix like that to implement bold logo text? Perhaps it would just be better to use a transparent text logo

    Hello, Does anyone know what Front-End Color represents the site title on the default white palette? I'm trying to making my site title a little bit darker so it can be seen. This is what it looked like with the default colors. Also, I could not find which color is under "create" and the notifications in the upper right. Trying to make that much darker because on mobile it takes up the whole row and does not look good to have two rows with the same dark blue like that. I tried to go down almost the whole palette changing everything to bright pink and back to figure out what is what, but that proved to be a difficult task.

    No luck on getting the Twitter feed to work. Any suggestions? I will leave my ACP credentials the same as yesterday if there is something you might think would help to check. The Twitter url I'm trying to connect to the feed is: https://twitter.com/vnetworking Input: Output (No tweets):

    T.I.T License Copyright Removal

    I was happy to buy this to show my support. Taman is the best thing to happen to IPB since IPS 4.0.

    This is still working on IPS 4.2.5. Awesome! This is a wonderful feature. It's a shame that it's not built into IP.Board but it's great that a plugin still works for it. Had to enable it for all users for it to work initially. Not sure if that was necessary but gave me some trouble at first until I did that.

    Thank you for responding. I re-installed the plugin and it is working now. Would have given up otherwise so I'm sorry for jumping to conclusions. *Confirmed working on 4.2.5*

    (NB40) Reorder Pinned Topics

    I installed this, enabled it for all groups, yet there is no "Pinned Topics" button available. This does not appear to work on 4.2. Edit: Found an alternative solution and confirmed it to work on 4.2: Still would have been nice just to be able to sort the topics but I had to uninstall newbie LAC's app. It has not been supported in two years but is a useful concept so had to give it a try.

    Magnum Theme [ support topic ]

    Hello, new fan here. About how difficult would it be to make a footer look like this? If I try to more than two columns of "Site Links" then it pushes it down into another row rather than cutting across the right half of the page. This example below is from a different theme in which the footer was the only part that I liked. It would also be desirable to be able to remove the ".........." separators in between the footer links on your theme or to use visuals similar to what's above. This is what the ACP in the footer section looks like in the them pictured above: I tried to copy those setting values over but it didn't work. Edit: Below is a screenshot of the best I could do using the parameters in the footer section on Magnum. Too much space under and above the headers and can only make those two columns. I also believe it would look much more professional with the divider style in the screenshot at the top of this post. Those columns also afforded this same text just enough space not to force anything on two lines. The column on the right also is a bit bigger (a better width). My target would be to have four columns with the same width of column two, with the discretion to use one of them as an "About me" but not in BB code.

    Magnum Theme

    I loved this so much that I bought the copyright-removal as a thank you. I was about to give up on IPB after many years of waiting for theme which could accomplish my goals and not be a complete headache. I was about to delete my hosted IPB account and change my content concept to WordPress, but downloaded this theme to give IPB one last chance. Not only is this headache-free, but it is getting scores on WebPageTest like I've never seen before: If I added an Amazon S3 bucket that B could probably turn into an A and I would get a perfect score. Load times are also under 3 seconds, and with a large image in my slider! The attention to detail you must have paid in order to accomplish out-of-box speed test scores like this is staggering. Going to keep this as my site's exclusive theme. Great work and please keep this updated.
