Got a few questions about the multi theme tutorial

Post by MicBoring on September 3rd 2012, 7:53 pm

Hi there! Hello


(here's the tutorial I'm using http://help.forumotion.com/t71484-add-multi-themes-to-your-forum)

Since I couldn't ask these inside the thread, I saw no other option but to make one. I apologize if it's in the wrong spot. :/



I'll put through step by step what I did so we might be able to find the problem:

First I found the themes I wanted to use, then I put their css code in the document like the tutorial said to. After that, I got he attachment of the HTML code, and also put that in a document. I then put it in the new HTML box. (here's where I think I messed up).

I changed to names of the "DEFAULT" "CUSTOM THEME 1/2/3" to the names I wanted my themes to have.

Okay, so this part:

In section 2, you will see the URL http://testorial.forumotion.com - Change that to the URL Of your forum.
You will see 5 numbers proceeding the URL, change that to the numbers we recorded earlier ( 1 per line ) as that is your next theme.

My problem is that I did not see the "http://testorial.forumotion.com". There was however a "http://yourforumsaddress.forumotion.com/77-ltr.css", which I replaced with my site address. There also was not 5 numbers proceeding the URL; it looked like this:


REF=" *DEFAULT THEME REMOVE THIS* http://yourforumsaddress.forumotion.com/77-ltr.css">');
} else if (scheme == 'Black') {
document.write('<LINK REL="stylesheet" TYPE="text/css" HREF="http://Custom Skin 1">');
} else if (scheme == 'Purple') {
document.write('<LINK REL="stylesheet" TYPE="text/css" HREF="http://Custom skin 2">');
} else if (scheme == 'Yellow') {
document.write('<LINK REL="stylesheet" TYPE="text/css" HREF="http://Custom skin 3">');;
}

Another problem, is that all of this is in the section that says "remove this" If I remove it, it looks like this:



If I don't remove it, it looks like this:



I am very confused on this, so help would be appreciated. Smile

I believe that // is a comment for jquery and javascript. after (toxigeek.com) press enter after that and see what happens

i'm sorry i scrolled right through this skimming. i see your issue

Code:
REF=" *DEFAULT THEME REMOVE THIS* http://yourforumsaddress.forumotion.com/77-ltr.css">');
} else if (scheme == 'Black') {
document.write('<LINK REL="stylesheet" TYPE="text/css" HREF="http://Custom Skin 1">');
} else if (scheme == 'Purple') {
document.write('<LINK REL="stylesheet" TYPE="text/css" HREF="http://Custom skin 2">');
} else if (scheme == 'Yellow') {
document.write('<LINK REL="stylesheet" TYPE="text/css" HREF="http://Custom skin 3">');;
}

Don't remove anything. href="http://CUSTOM SKIN 1">'); well change CUSTOM SKIN 1 to 78-ltr.css or whatever those css's are at. if you are having any other issues please be more specific on each step by step. starting with one thing then move on the next and i'll help

Sorry it wasn't clear enough. Smile

Hmm, I did put the .css code in there; here's what I put there for that section:

Code:
HREF=" *DEFAULT THEME REMOVE THIS*  http://luxspelunca.forumotion.com/138261-ltr.css">');
} else if (scheme == 'Black') {
document.write('<LINK REL="stylesheet" TYPE="text/css" HREF="http://testspelunca.forumotion.com/147216-ltr.css">');
} else if (scheme == 'Purple') {
document.write('<LINK REL="stylesheet" TYPE="text/css" HREF="http://testspelunca.forumotion.com/138261-ltr.css">');
} else if (scheme == 'Yellow') {
document.write('<LINK REL="stylesheet" TYPE="text/css" HREF="http://
testspelunca.forumotion.com/138332-ltr.css
">');;

ok and it's not working? try taking out your sites link in them. make it so it only says

Code:
/138261-ltr.css">'
not your sites url testspelunca.forumotion.com because i believe what this does is

testspelunca.forumotion.com/testspelunca.forumotion.com/138261-ltr.css written like that when it searches.

I just tried that, and it had the same results as the bottom screen shot.

Well I just put it in a js and it worked to some extent; the theme only halfway appeared, but I'm guessing that that might have just been when the code got a little sloppy.

*edit* only problem is that only one of them works, and that one only works half way. bwi
