You can download it in the attachment below. You can also see how it looks using the 2.1 demo site. If it does not show automatically for you just use the "Theme Select" block at the top left and change it to the theme of your choice:

Have fun!  :D

Looks pretty darn good! :)


Are these themes getting any easier for you to update?


Keep up the good work.

I forgot to make sure the responsive part was updated!  :idiot2:

I have updated the attachment in the first post.

Looks pretty darn good! :)

Keep up the good work.

Yes, I'm very surprised at how well I've been doing considering this is not my forte and have just really started getting deeply into this. LOL

Thanks! Les has helped a lot, mostly with the images.  O0

I noticed but thought it was just for the Demo?


Glad it is getting easier.  :)  Thanks to both you and Les.

Hello,


Looks great...but can I ask a question. I'm currently using the CripZone Back n Black theme on my SMF 2.0 forum (image attached)

I've been looking around for something similar to keep my eye on when 2.1 comes out. Do you have any plans on doing something similar to the old Back n Black?
Title: Re: Ambassador 2.1 For RC2 Is Here!!!
Post by: Skhilled on Aug 03, 19, 08:11:44 PM
Yes, I plan on updating all of the 70+ themes here so they will be used with 2.1. And since you've asked next I'll work on Back N Black next. ;)
Please keep in mind there may be many changes to the 2.1 RC versions and who knows when it will finally be released. But I'll keep up on it.

That's awesome man! Thank you!

How easy would it be to make say, 3 different color schemes? Rather than just a blue like that, how about also a nice purple, and maybe something else? If it's a lot of work...don't worry about it, I sincerely appreciate you taking a crack at this as it is.

Purple and Blue are 2 of the colors through the main site, so it would be nice to try to match them up. Maybe someday, if my forum ever actually got traction, I'd pay for a specialized scheme to be created to try and match better with the shopping side.

Post by: Skhilled on Aug 03, 19, 11:20:58 PM
Funny that you should mention changing colors. I've been look at how to code multi-color themes since I've never tried it. It may require a bit of work but should be doable.

Can you show me a link to your site so I can see exactly what colors you want?
Title: Re: Ambassador 2.1 For RC2 Is Here!!!
Post by: Dragon41673 on Aug 03, 19, 11:59:12 PM
Sure thing...

Main sales site is www.ariesgamesandminis.com

I've been toying with different colors on a test site, none sit well with me, but changes to colors are forthcoming.

You can see there is a blue that is used on the main site, which is kind of a teal/light blue...that's going to change to a bit darker one.

The purple I'm going to slowly work in, as I did with the hover coloring on the product listings...but I think I may want to go a bit darker that the purple that's showing. That was being used as a test bed for some people I trust to give me proper feedback on how it looks to them (many are pro artists that I happen to know...so they come in handy for that kind of stuff).

The blue I'd like to use, is featured on the "robot" that is the mascot of the site...just need to dial it in just right...and find time to actually do it.

Didn't realize you were ready to jump right into this! LOL
Title: Re: Ambassador 2.1 For RC2 Is Here!!!
Post by: Skhilled on Aug 04, 19, 08:35:34 AM
LOL, I just finished Ambassador and was trying to figure out what theme to work on next. With 70+ themes there's a lot to choose from. I made a comment in the CleanWhite topic asking if anyone had a theme they wanted to see updated. One person said Ambassador then you asked for Back N Black.

Yeah, I know nailing down colors can be a challenge. I used to be into Photoshop a lot more years ago but stopped to do other options like running a hosting company, beta testing software, etc. as well as starting to teach myself how to do this.
Btw, great looking site!  O0

Post by: Dragon41673 on Aug 04, 19, 12:07:30 PM
Yeah, all the colors I like, don't look good on the background, which then makes me pull out other colors for the background, which then make the site look like poop. Oh well...

Whatever you can do, would be awesome! Thank you very much!

Post by: Skhilled on Aug 04, 19, 04:34:23 PM
First, I'll have to learn how to update the multi-color theme for RC2 then I can begin editing the separate themes. My partner who know a little more than I is currently in the hospital. I may have to wait for him to get out first...if I don't figure it out sooner.
Title: Re: Ambassador 2.1 For RC2 Is Here!!!
Post by: Dragon41673 on Aug 04, 19, 11:05:35 PM
I'm sorry to hear that...hope they recover from whatever is going on quickly!

This theme has been updated for a forgotten color change. The first post has been updated. :P

In index.css, change line 2454:

Code: [Select]
#pick_theme .selected {
background: #cddbe6;
}

To this:

Code: [Select]
#pick_theme .selected {
background: #1f1f1f;
}

Awesome theme Thank You  O0

How do you like the hovers...when it changes colors when you put your mouse over various things?

I finally updated SMF to 2.1 RC2 and I installed this amazing theme!
Thank you so much!

Hi

Just saying that I tried the amabassador2_1 theme today and had to edit index.template.php to include missing function "template_quickbuttons", which I copied over from the standard SMF2.1 default version of index.template.php.  Got "server 500" errors without this function in place.

Good looking theme I have to say  :)

What mods do you have installed? I haven't got those errors.
Title: Re: Ambassador 2.1 For RC2 Is Here!!!

This was an upgrade from 2.0.17 with virtually all files overwritten.

It's on one of my home servers so still under test.

When browsing topics I noticed I could only ever see the first post. Checking the PHP (7.3.13) log I noticed a lot of these...

Quote
[02-Mar-2020 13:44:00 Europe/London] PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function template_quickbuttons() in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Forum2.1\Themes\default\Display.template.php:865
Stack trace:
#0 C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Forum2.1\Themes\default\Display.template.php(255): template_single_post(Array)
#1 C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Forum2.1\Sources\Load.php(2539): template_main()
#2 C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Forum2.1\Sources\Subs.php(3476): loadSubTemplate('main')
#3 C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Forum2.1\index.php(176): obExit(NULL, true, true)
#4 {main}

I picked up the 2.1 repo from Github 7 days ago.

As I said, as this theme provides its own index.template.php file the default one isnt being loaded, meaning that button function was missing.  Copying the function over fixes the issue.

I do know that SMF 2.0.17 is not actually ready for PHP 7.3. So, you may get other errors or problems. AFAIK, it only works properly up to 7.2. There should be an update coming sooner or later...

Thanks for the tip about that function. :)
Title: Re: Ambassador 2.1 For RC2 Is Here!!!
Post by: shambles on Mar 02, 20, 11:18:56 AM
Yeah I'm on 2.0.17 (7.3.13) on all my production and test sites, apart from this one which is on 2.1 RC2

7.3 is fine for 2.0.17 though there are still a few deprecated function still within the source files (though the errors are masked out)
Title: Re: Ambassador 2.1 For RC2 Is Here!!!
Post by: Skhilled on Mar 02, 20, 11:26:28 AM
Sorry! Busy doing too many things at one time. LOL Just realized you did say it was 2.1 RC2. LMAO

Yes, the deprecated functions are a problem with 2.0.17. On some sites they give a ton of errors. :P
Title: Re: Ambassador 2.1 For RC2 Is Here!!!
Post by: Skhilled on Mar 03, 20, 09:37:43 AM
One question... Did you just add that function at the end of the file or replace the "function template_button_strip" with the "template_quickbuttons"?
Title: Re: Ambassador 2.1 For RC2 Is Here!!!
Post by: shambles on Mar 03, 20, 10:23:00 AM
Just added it to the end of the file :)
Title: Re: Ambassador 2.1 For RC2 Is Here!!!
Post by: Skhilled on Mar 03, 20, 10:24:06 AM
OK, thank you very much, just making sure first. :)

After that win, you can get your hands dirty with Crip's BlackBox theme  :2up:
Title: Re: Ambassador 2.1 For RC2 Is Here!!!
Post by: Skhilled on Mar 03, 20, 10:36:15 AM
Okey, dokey. That'll be next. I had thought to hold off on doing more themes for RC2 until RC3 is released cause then I'd have to just update them all again and there's 70+ themes here! But who knows when that'll be.

I'll be glad to do requests from users. :)
EDIT: First post updated with the missing "template_quickbuttons".  O0
