Solved Portfolio Photos

Post by dmleforce on May 4th 2013, 9:50 pm

Out of the themes available for my forum version (Invision), this is my favorite one. Unfortunately the creator expects you to go to their site where everything's in French. And except for the main page - they expect you to register & login to see most of the posts. So if you add a link to Google translate & try to translate the entire page it expects you to login. Even if you're registered & logged in it still expects you to login. So you do then whatever was translated goes back to French.

After copying/pasting bits of text into Google Translate for translation, which is a pain in the rear, I finally figured out how to download a zip file. But I'm not finding any real directions in any language.

Not even the ones in French teach you how to make your site:

look like their demo site:

It did say their zip file would include that banner image so you could edit it. But I'm not finding it. I'm also not exactly sure how to switch out their banner image w/ url to one of your own. Or how to remove forum title & description after I've edited & changed that banner image.

Any help would be much appreciated. Smile

I answered some of my own questions. I thought I'd do so here to help others interested in this theme.

On the skin details page creator's posted a link to their site where you can get blank banner image & zip file.

To remove site title & description from page simply delete from forum configuration.

Change the link from creator's banner to your banner here

Code:
#userlinks{
background-color: transparent !important;
background-image: url('http://i64.servimg.com/u/f64/13/24/64/14/demo_h10.png');
padding-top: 69px;
margin: 0px;
margin-bottom: 0px;
width: 922px;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
}

Note - if you upload to free image host that came w/ site it will resize. So for banner I'd use another free image host who doesn't resize.

To make your front page look like demo add this code to Display - Home Page - General - Home Page Message

Code:
<table width="922px" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="3">
<tbody>

You will have to switch out images, text & links.

The original images are in the zip file so you can tweak them.

I was having a problem w/ tiny link text but I fixed it by adding font size to above code.



Now I'm having problem w/ link text dropping:



Any help w/ this problem would be much appreciated. Smile

I've done it again - answered my own question.

If you use creator's PSD files - switch out their pics w/ others & save - the links won't drop like in the above pic.

Now except for the gallery I've got this figured out. And I speak about the gallery elsewhere so I'm marking this one solved. But I hope you do leave it for future reference. Thanks. Smile :wouhou:
