New Vanilla 2 Inspired theme

    Heya,

    I really liked the new Vanilla 2 theme, but after 4 hours or trying to get it to install with NGINX, I moved onto bbpress.

    I like the simplicity of bbpress, but was hoping for a snazzier theme. So I ported over the Vanilla 2 theme to bbpress.

    I think it’s a nice example of where bbpress can go if it maybe sheds some of the legacy tabular layout.

    This is bbpress 1.02

    Cheers,

    -J

    Looks good. In Firefox 3.6, the Remember Me checkbox overlaps the submit button on the homepage sidebar.

    That’s amazing! Do you mind sharing that bbPress theme?

    I like it a lot. I agree with Kevin, you should share it!

    I like it too – I would love it if you could share it; even if it’s just a skeleton that others can work with (as I understand this theme has been mostly customized for CheckFront, though I may be wrong).

    Wonderful work.

    Thanks guys,

    I’ll need to remove some custom stuff in the theme. Will package it up some time this week.

    Cheers,

    I see it’s now using Vanilla – not liking bbPress Checkfront?

    @checkfront

    Yeah we had to switch. The current bbpress is missing needed functionality (read-only only forums, e-mail notifications). The existing plug-ins seem abandoned.

    We’ll check back on 1.1. It’s looking good.

    wow

    this is definitely a very nice theme

    I have a few questions:

    ***on the forum list

    it shows categories and subforums and its post count

    first remark: my post count on categories is always 0, as they are locked

    can they not show the 0, or even better show the sumtotal of all subforums?

    second: can I have it to show only categories and their sumtotals

    and when i click a category it expands to show the subforums

    ****Extra Lines

    one: just below the bbcrumb, same line as just above

    and color in between lightgrey same color as search box

    two

    on the bottom, just above the footer text

    and color below lightgrey same color as search box

    ***bbcrumb

    can bbcrumb, when i click on forum show me a page with all categories listed, instead of front page

    just before the bbcrumb on same include a link to home

    so it would be like this

    home forum/category/subforum/topic/post

    ***PostView

    the tag overview on the right is a simple list, could it be a cloud or multiple columns, it takes up a lot of space if somebody enters in a lot of tags

    greatly appreciate any help you can give me

    Hi Gideons,

    I suggest you talk to the author directly at http://www.jasonmorehouse.com/bbpress-vanilla-theme

    :)

    when a logged out or guest user goes to the post page

    the login box area gets mixed with the yellow post info box

    as soon as the suer logs in

    that problem is solved and the yellow area just moves down to make room for user info

    how can I make the same behavior for a guest user?

    again i like the design, clean and simple

    Hi Gideons,

    Mate, with respect, these aren’t really bbPress issues, it’s an issue with an independant theme given away some 2-3 months ago.

    It sounds to me like a basic web design CSS issue, thats outwith teh scope of this board, but if you’re still struggling, please contact the theme author at: http://www.jasonmorehouse.com/bbpress-vanilla-theme

    :)

    Since the original source is no longer available

    and the theme is GPL I am mirroring it here:

    http://bbshowcase.org/themes/cf-vanilla.zip

    (Note the original poster’s link is no longer running bbpress)

    It is a nice theme quite similar to one of phpdugg’s theme.

    hello, i was wondering how do i remove the top header from the actual template? i tried removing the header tag and it went funny…is there anyway i can take it out of the header template file so it just shows the rest of the page as i’m going to be using a css frame at the top for a custom header

    okay i fixed the above problem now :) , i properly looked through the header and made the right adjustments!

    i was wondering if anybody had a fix for when somebody searches for threads and it displays the thread in the results, if the name is too long it breaks the layout and makes it look terrible, any solutions?
