I revisited my old blue and grey theme, revised it to look much nicer and then ran it through the upgrader to make sure it works well with v7.1.

I added it to the community downloads a while ago and have since done a little more to it. I have attached the updated file to this post. I hope someone enjoys it and finds it useful :) And maybe the attached file can replace the other when someone gets time to validate it?

It does work with the theme wizard to change the colors but since I changed a lot of the original colors that the theme wizard produced for the base I started with it produces some odd results. Something I am aware of now and will try not to do in future themes.

You can see it in my gallery pictured as a fixed width and it is also demoed in a zone on my site as a fluid design

Brian,

This Blue & Grey Theme looks great with the new ocPortal 7 and CSS3 box-shadow feature.

Well Done!:thumbs:

I am starting to wonder if there is something wrong with the way I added it to the community downloads....I added it two weeks ago and it is still not validated?

Ah, looks like we missed the validation email – just done this now.

Do you think we should just let people submit without validation? There is currently no particular review process, although if something looked suspicious by a user I didn't recognise, I might investigate deeper.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thanks Chris!

That is a tough call on validating submissions….maybe not allow everyone to bypass validation but allow certain user groups to bypass it?

That way if they made it into that user group odds are good that they are a contributing member with good intentions.

I agree with Brian.

I was faced with the same issue for my website. I figured that if members had accumulated enough points to achieve a certain usergroup, odds are their submissions will be legit.

Yes, I join Brian and BobS!

This would also make it easier to follow-up on the submissions and edit them with improvements overtime.
