Theme problems and troubles, Need help!

Post by Neoroify on April 4th 2011, 10:53 pm

Greetings,

I am encountering a very serious problem with my forum theme, Basically and to not make it long explaining to you...

Compare between this:
http://demo.nicetheme.com/forum?theme_id=159370

and this:
http://n-tbotb.net/

The text are underlined, not professional looking like the first one, the background is not constant and it is repeated not like how it looks in the first one..

Also the font, etc.. is not modern like the theme preview, When I installed the theme I agree'd to replace the CSS, I know it might be the problem from there because I messed up with the CSS to change few stuff and I believe i messed up soo bad, And I can't undo that because when I select a forum backup (22nd Jan.) It stays the same, and guess what? with no theme at all, and like that standard php silly looking underlined font! aswell as the "Minimize" button, In the preview it says "Minimize" and a "-", but in my forum it is "-" only...............

I do not want to continue replacing the forum images to the one to fit my forum category until i fix that weird problem!

If you please, I need a solution A.S.A.P.

Hi, your title not related to your question and not facilitating research via the search option, I'm not answering (nor is any other member) until you change your title for an explicit one, related to your problem
Why we ask for explicit titles
The forum's search engine bases its research on keywords found in topic titles.

When you do a research, do you use "help", "urgent", "problem", "SOS" or "question" as keywords to look for topics about your problem/question?
Certainly not! So this is why it is important to use titles related to your problem/question. Doing this makes the researches much easier for visitors who use the search engine to get an answer to their question.
Thanks for your understanding.

Cordially
Forumotion Staff

Let me guess...... The CSS related to the theme is... A THEME problem.. Isn't it? I don't find anything not related to the problem I am explaining like how you're complaining.

Plus, It is a "serious" problem because this is provoking me and my members, Plus they're annoyed from the font and everything and they started to go inactive, yeah guess what they do care about the outer look.

And I can not roll back to an earlier date where everything was set to default, because actually when i use a backup it f---s it up more!

You have too many same rules with same properties in CSS, try adding this to the bottom of your CSS.

Spoiler:

This is for your body that isn't good.
Code:
body {
background-attachment: fixed;
background-color: #111111;
background-image: url("http://hitskin.com/themes/15/93/70/i_background.png");
color: #FFFFFF;
font-family: Arial,Verdana,Tahoma,sans-serif;
font-size: 11px;
line-height: 135%;
margin: 0 auto;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: center;
}
This is for links.
Code:
a:link { color: #F5F5F5;
text-decoration: none;
}
This is for minamize photo.
Code:
div.maintitle .expand, div.maintitle .contract {
background: url("http://i25.tinypic.com/2cmk74i.jpg") no-repeat scroll 50% 50% transparent; cursor: pointer; float: right; height: 20px; width: 80px;
}

If it doesn't go well, edit your present rules (this three) and change the settings liks mine.

Uhm..... Before I added these stuff, I tried to submit the settings might they've not been saved and this error came up:

Code:

[b]Error[/b]

Detected error
We
 have counted a different number of "{" and of "}". It means your CSS
risks to be not valid and will not be posted correctly on your forum.

We advise you to reread your code.


EDIT: I think i should return my forum overall style/css and themes to default... how to do that?!

Ignore it. Nothing's going to happen. You don't have eaqul number od open {, and close } tags. Every rule must have open and colse tags. Sometime skins from Hitskin come like that. You can try to find it and delete the spare. I see it fixed a lot of things. To have the same backgoround you should use this link in your body http://i26.tinypic.com/9bd4pd.jpg
You can always reinstall your theme but you will lose changes you did to this skin in CSS if you've done any.
That should be it or you need to change something else?
