Pete Harris's plugins:
Simple Neutral Theme (Edit your project's description!)
This simple neutral theme is a stripped back default theme. It has a horizontal menu bar with links to the main sections.
The rounded boxes use the css3 border radius method - so will currently only be visible in webkit and mozilla-based browsers. (ie. Internet Explorer and Opera will have square corners).
Requirements: Elgg v1.1
Once installed to your /mod directory, go to Tool Administration, use the new up/down/top/bottom function to move the theme to the bottom of the plugin list (so that it loads last).
It contains skins for all the plugins in the elgg v1.1 full package.
Pete, fantastic themes there. I like the colour scheme of this one in particular, and was modifying it for my own website. One question I have is the solid white strip at top of page which houses the network title in it, is very narrow. I wan't it to be deeper to accommodate an image I want to include - however I'm tweaking away with the CSS and cant find the area which governs this. I'm finding myself pushing body content down, but the white header strip stays consistenty at 50px.
If you go to my site you'll see my logo image is 100 pixels in height, and runs down over the top of the solid grey bar and in to the body of the page. Any suggestions?
i'm having trouble installing themes.. i've followed your directions: download, unzip, upload to /mod directory, set plug-in to bottom of list, enable. I'm still stuck with the default theme. ANy ideas what i'm doing wrong?
thanks in advance, and sorry for the dumb question... total noob here..
I'm new on elgg. I just installed elgg on my server. And now, i try to install that theme.
but it doesn't work. I still have an ugly standard page, without formatting. What did I did wrong?
Hi ibondage, just reinstate
<?php echo elgg_view('page_elements/spotlight', $vars); ?>
in pageshell.php in the theme plugin (usually it goes just before the footer call). Also remember to include a spotlight file in page_elements - with your spotlight layout/contents.
Does anyone know if this theme work for elgg v1.2? if so how can i upload it to my site. I put it on my mod folder and click enable on my site but i keep getting an error and the site dont work at all. except for that error page. Can someone please help me out? I am very new to elgg.
@jp Yep, this theme works fine with elgg v1.2. What error page do you get? Does your site work ok out of the box? In Tool Administration, did you use the up/down/top/bottom controls to move the theme to the bottom of the plugin list? and as Dan pointed out, clear your browser cache and reload if the theme doesn't display correctly.
i tried to extract the zip file it ask me if i want to copy this folder without encryption?
a problem is preventing this folder folder from being encrypted.
I extract it anyway and put it up to my site it was already in the bottom of the pluggin list so i did not click on the up and down buttons.
I am unable to see your theme when tried to fire the URL onto my browser. I am seeing the same old theme (BLUE ONE) which comes by default when you installed the ELGG. I had installed ELGG1.2 and done exactly as you mentioned in this page. I cleared the caches but still unable to see your theme.
Please guide me what I am doing wrong!
