First, thanks to everyone for all their work on v7.6.0 (Gizmo, id242, ....). I just installed it. The install took all of 15 minutes and was flawless. Now, of course, I realize I need to update the graphics to really make it mobile friendly.

I'd like to start with new style templates. Are the following style templates available for purchase (or for a donation to the cause)?

UBB Dev - Worn
UBB Dev - Worn-Larger Font
UBB Dev - Zen

Thanks!

"Zen" is included within the UBB.threads 7.6.0 package.

Have a quick read through this link

"Worn" is a unique style created for UBBDev.com only. It is not for sale or sharing at all.

Duh..... I... must... learn... to... read!

Not sure how I missed that! Sorry! It's now installed and looks good.

The only think I need to do now is to create a new Forum Logo (my old one was too wide for good viewing on mobile devices) and then to update all my custom inserts.

Thanks again!

You didn't really need an image for what you had before, something similar to this should work just as well:
Code
<div style="color:#455A64;font-size: 3em;font-weight:700;max-width:100%;text-align:center;">
<a href="/">Your Forum Name</a>
</div>


Remove the text-align if you don't want it centered. If you wanted top/bottom padding you'd add: padding:10px 0px; (top/bottom left/right) or padding: 10px 0px 10px 0px; (top, right, bottom, left; clockwise).

Thanks. We used to have a nice graphic image but a wide image is not mobile-friendly. I had replaced it with just a text logo. Now I updated it with your code. It looks fine on my laptop in Firefox but is scrunched on my iPhone.

I really like the update. I updated all of our individual forum custom inserts. So it looks great. The "UBB Central - Zen" style template is far nicer than the old one I had developed.

Thank you smile I worked for a great deal of time on creating each of new Styles (and updating the classic ones). "Zen" was one of my favorites to create. Just a perfect balance of BlueGrey & Grey.


I noticed that you have several incorrect uses of the IMAGE tags.

For example, you have this:
<input alt="Expulsion from Paradise" src="http://byzcath.org/images/icon-cheesefare-expulsion-4a-detail.jpg" style="width: 227px; height: 112px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 5px; float: left;" type="image" />

Which should instead be this:
<img src="http://byzcath.org/images/icon-cheesefare-expulsion-4a-detail.jpg" style="width: 227px; height: 112px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 5px; float: left;" alt="Expulsion from Paradise">

And taking it a step further, if you wanted that to be mobile friendly (such as your iphone), update the style tag to this:
<img src="http://byzcath.org/images/icon-cheesefare-expulsion-4a-detail.jpg" style="width: 227px; max-width: 100%; height: auto; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 5px; float: left;" alt="Expulsion from Paradise">

The magic is that section which has been bolded

Thanks! I made the update. I need to update my html skills. 20 years ago I used to be able to hard-code with ease in notepad. Then I moved to CMS for most everything. And things have changed a lot. I need to find a useful online html editor to use to make these things interesting.

LOL - Of course, this means that I will need to update all of my custom headers again.

Jake, one last thing

In the footer of your posts, you have a custom Facebook / Twitter module installed.

from the facebook <iframe ...> element...
1) Remove the width:450px;
2) Update it from height:24px; to height:20px; so that it matches the twitter iframe

Doing this change will allow your pages to fit perfectly on mobile screens.

Cheers laugh

You know what, I just noticed that the "custom Facebook / Twitter module" stuff is actually part of UBB.threads. I didnt even know it was in there. It wasnt anything that I had ever used or that I knew was configurable. But once I saw that on your site, and someone elses site, I had to confirm with the source code. Hmmm.

I'll make some changes for 761 and for the update here for you to use now, if you feel comfortable making those changes yourself.

I'm in awe right now.

thanks!

id242,

Thanks for the update. I was going crazy searching through my backup for "Facebook". I was only finding it in fa.min.css.

Jake

Yep. I edited my original post. I started composing it before you posted. I'll look for your post with the upgraded file. I'm comfortable with doing the update. Especially if I can manage to read the directions first. Thanks. laugh

Jake, if you need anything else, either James or myself are usually around -- or on our mobiles.

Good day laugh
