same problem :surprised:

did you find anything to explain it ?

did you upload the entire cmas folder to the images directory?
did you rename any files or folders? (I had someone do this, which is why I asked)

I can't figure out what the problem is unless I have a link to your site so I can check it out

thanks m8 but one of our admin has sorted it :)

not spoke to him yet but it looks like it might have been the image paths as its been installed in our test forum and the path is not the normal www/forum/images/cmas path.

thanks anyway m8 ;)

thanks and sorry im greenSince I don't know what kind of errors you got, I have no idea. Most likely there is a hack/modification causing the errors, as this particular theme is mostly css-based. If you want it validated, you'll have to go through it and do it yourself. Sorry.

Peggy, I have a user inquiring into centering the header image, he says its showing left-justified with his monitor set to a high-res setting. I didn't install the newest update, I have an older one; would it be centered with the new one? Or is there a way to center it with the older one? I hate updating a skin if I don't have to because there are so many individual things I have to change every time I install or overwrite a skin. :P

I hate updating a skin if I don't have to because there are so many individual things I have to change every time I install or overwrite a skin. :P No, this is designed for the header to be on the left. If you want it centered, go into your header template and change the two instances of left to center, and save.

Hey Peggy~

Back on the previous page, Agitated was having difficulties, so I offered the older version, but have not done so, as I don't feel comfortable doing that, and would like to hear your thoughts on the situation. I think perhaps they're just not doing the install correctly.

agitated
03 Dec 2007, 17:36

Hey y'all, my apologies for the problems. It was brought to my attention on my site that there is a blip in the current .xml file, so I downloaded a new one and checked it out thoroughly. I've now replaced the xml in the zip file, so please download the zip again and re-import the new .xml

Again my apologies!

This is the first time I've done anything at ALL with styles...

I using the latest vB and just downloaded the file a few minutes ago (so it should be the latests file too).

A couple of questions -- first, it doesn't appear that it is grabbing the background.

The second question is that it has done something strange to my chatbox (if you look at the regular site screen shot, you will see there are icons in the chatbox to go to the different channels), if you look at the Christmas skin attachment you'll see that I don't have a background and something wonky happened to my chatbox.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated I am a totally newbie on this stuff :)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated I am a totally newbie on this stuff :)I have NO idea what it could possibly have done to the chatbox. That's one complaint I've not seen til now. There are absolutely no template edits in this theme, so I really am at a loss for that one.

There seems to be something strange going on with the .xml file, which I've yet to find. It's working perfectly on my site, but others are having issues such as the bg and other images, all in the misc folder, not showing.

I've sussed out in the code how to alter the colour of the flakes to show against a white forum background, just trying to work out which bit is the frequency of snow and snow character/size.
