A simple 'silver 'n' dark blue' theme with many hidden gems.

The theme is based on a 'Restaurant' scenario, but it can be adapted for any purpose by simply adding or omitting elements.

I will draw your attention to some of the changes made to the basic theme by referring you to the accompanying 'carousel' images!


The PSDs and FONTs that were used in the build have not been included as they add exponentially to t…

Just installed!
It looks wonderful with lots of classy details throughout the theme.
Well Done, Fletch!

That is reassuring. Thanks, Jean.

(wonder why the carousel and images are 'borked'?)

Awesome job, Fletch.  This is a great addition to the version 9 themes as it is generic enough that it can be adapted to a host of "professional" uses.

I'll be trying this out on one of my sites in the near future, thanks very much for the efforts!

Tell us when it goes 'live' so we can all see what, and how, you've adapted it.

It just dawned on me (a year or so late!!) that I never followed up!

I've had this running on one of my sites for quite a while and it's working flawlessly:

Thanks again, Fletch!!  :lol:

I really like what you did with the theme, and I'm only sorry that I was never able to sort out the 'links' problem. I'm sure there is a 'simple' fix for this (see the attachments), but I always got bogged down when I tried to change things in the CSS.

If you can live with it, I'm sure I can, but now that you've brought my attention to it again I shall have a look into how I can segregate the CSS application on the various page backgrounds …!!

Missing Image?

Avatar
An image code (underline) was referenced that does not exist

How do I fix this issue?

Update:
The call for the 'underline' image was an ocPortal legacy CSS call from an earlier version. It had been commented out in the CSS and replaced by the 'arrow' image, but for some reason the commented out line was still being read and worse, it got cached and refused to budge even when caches were cleared.

Mr Rat gave me access to his Admin and I was able to DELETE the commented out line in the global.css file and that removed the error.

Happiness all round …!!

Could you please send me the steps to edit the css file, Fletch?
I have the exact same problem on my site that I'm using Prato on.

Thanks!!!

I've responded in another thread you started. Let me have the URL, please …

Consistent error message across multiple pages

Avatar
Hi Fletch!

I have the theme installed and I really like the look and feel, however, I get the following error on multiple pages:

An image code (underline) was referenced that does not exist.

I'm hoping it's something simple like a missing file that I can just add in and everything will be great.

Thanks again for a great job!!

I think my previous advice to Mr Rat is still current, but I've uninstalled the theme from my sandbox site so can't be absolutely certain.

Send me the URL of your site (in a PT if you don't want it advertised as yet), and I'll take a look.

Can't say fairer than that …!!

Well, it's kinda/sorta current, LOL! :lol:

I went into the global.css and searched for "underline", as there weren't that many instances.  Based on your notes and comments, there is only one line (#550) that is commented out.  I was able to determine that that was the problem code, and so following your suggestion I went ahead and deleted it…

The problem is:  When I scroll down to click the save button, it generates a critical error - bailing out, so it actually won't let me delete that one line :(

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks again

Yeah ….

Don't 'delete' it; always prefer to comment it out with /* text */ before and after the actual line of text.

That way the rule isn't called into use, but will always remain there in case you ever have a change of mind and wish to restore it.

Try that, and it should allow you to save …!!

No luck.  Since the line is already commented out, I tried various formats, but all resulted in the critical error-bailing out again.

I went back to your post for Mr. Rat and in that message above, you specifically said that you deleted the line, so that's why I was trying to do the same.

Regardless, it seems that whatever I try I can't seem to make any changes to that darn file.

It would be interesting to know what the "critical error-bailing out" error message was. For example, a file permission problem, a missing directory.

I can say though that burying missing theme images inside CSS comments won't get rid of an error message generated by ocPortal because ocPortal still has to look them up if they're referenced in the file. 'underline' was a theme image in a much older version of ocPortal I believe.

I know it took me a while to track down the little blighter when I was tinkering with Mr Rat's site - and that I found it in an unexpected place!

Send me the URL and I will do the same for you.

Fletch and Chris:

I am going to PM both of you with a common log in account and the related info.  If you'd like to have a look at the global.css file, the line that I believe Fletch was suggesting to delete is line # 550.

Chris, the error message that it generates if I attempt to delete that one commented line and then save is:

Critical error €" bailing out
This is an error that has been elevated to critical error status because it occurred during the primary error mechanism reporting system itself (possibly due to it occuring within the standard output framework). It may be masking a secondary error that occurred before this, but was never output - if so, it is likely strongly related to this one, thus fixing this will fix the other.
