This update brings DarkTabbed up to speed with the latest NulumiaBase framework and features, and includes updated templates and support for Xenforo 1.5.17. There are also several style tweaks and bug fixes.

Changelog

NulumiaBase Changes

  • Added Resource index slider compatibility with [HA] Featured Resource Layouts mod

  • Fixed a bug where the New Posts sidebar widget did not have space between the block heading and text

NulumiaBase Changes
Fixes & Improvements

Mod Related Changes
NulumiaBase Changes
Fixes & Improvements
  • Revamped the theme spacing system to use more consistent padding between content areas (header, footer, slider, etc). Padding has been removed from the .pageWidth controller and now follow traditional Xenforo methodology of using the parent div -> pageWidth -> pageContent div system, with padding on the pageContent element.
  • Reworked the footer columns and footer legal area to use correct padding, particularly when transitioning to responsive layouts
  • Added new conditional logic to control the slider padding and stretch-to-edge mode during various configurations
  • Fixed a bug where the slider would overlap the screen and cause scrolling on mobile layouts during various theme configurations. The slider now correctly inherits the padding from the contentResponsive property during responsive transition.
  • Fixed a bug where the slider would not show up on the Resource index when 'Next to Sidebar / Above Content' mode is enabled
  • Fixed a bug where the Resource List slider would skip (clear) to below the left sidebar
NulumiaBase Changes
Fixes & Improvements
  • Fixed a bug where the Node Last Post container would have incorrect styling on regular default mobile layouts (No side-by-side or custom background modes enabled)
  • Re-fixed a bug where a previous correction to sidebar sectionFooter elements having the incorrect border color stopped working
  • Removed text underline on concealed type links in the body or header area (footer link underlines remain by default)
  • Added the default Xenforo form-type overlay shadow to the new Popup Login Form
  • Removed a white background which would occassionally show behind the Signup Button on forum home
  • Removed the padding container around the Signup Button in most themes (Button now floats at full width of sidebar)
Theme Changes

Overview

This update includes the beta release of DarkTabbed for Xenforo 2!

As you may be wondering, I have not yet released a new product for the XF2 theme. This release is mostly intended for existing customers who would like to start using DarkTabbed on their Xenforo 2 site, while I finish up the written documentation.

Although there's no instructions yet, existing users should feel right at home editing the features before I launch the standalone product in a few days -- nearly all theme settings work identically with XF1, plus a few improvements.

How to get the theme:

Simply re-download your theme package at www.nulumia.com, and you will find the XF1 and XF2 themes now organized in separate folders.

Features

As my Xenforo 1.x themes were the result of nearly 18 months of development, please bear in mind that not all features made it into the XF2 edition. However, I'll be releasing very frequent updates until everything gets to par, and look forward to surpassing XF1 with even better features.

Feedback

Please leave any questions or comments you may have! I'd love to hear from you and enjoy making these themes even better :).

Overview

This is the first rollout of the new features introduced by NulumiaBase version 1.7.7, including Custom Node Backgrounds, Popup Login Form, and Logo Icon Slider. Further enhancements to these features will be coming soon in next versions.

Changelog

New Features
  • Added new Custom Node Background feature (available via [Nulumia] Node Settings property group)
    • Add custom background images to your nodes, or use solid background colors
    • Style nodes and node elements separately when Custom Node Background mode is enabled (node title, last post box, text color, etc)
    • New compatibility with Side by Side Node feature
  • Added new Logo Icon Slider feature (available via [Nulumia] Logo Icon Slider property group)
    • Add up to ten partner/sponsor/featured logo icons
    • Auto-Play setting
    • Infinite Scroll setting
    • Control numerous options, such as number of icons to show per row, number of icons to scroll, show or hide dot controls, auto-play delay, and more
    • Style slider elements via custom Style Properties
    • Fully responsive
    • Control number of icons to show per row on different sized screens (tablet, phone etc)
  • Added new Popup Login Form feature (available via Login Bar property group)
  • Added new Slider Features and Locations
    • Slider now has numerous new improvements for handling different sized slide images and across different screen widths
    • Toggle between Letterbox Mode and Auto-Crop image mode. Images which don't fit standard dimensions will be scaled or fit accordingly depending on the option set.
    • Set both a max width or max height for the slider
    • Add the slider to new pages, templates and locations (Choose from Forum Home, Discussion List, Blog List, Resource Index, and Page Node templates)
    • Separately choose whether to display a full-width slider, or narrow (next to sidebar) slider, depending on whether the page uses a sidebar
Fixes & Improvements
  • Changed standard body font in most themes from Open Sans to Roboto
  • Added new theme support for legacy IE and Edge browser fixes
  • Added new body class system to handle styling when various features are enabled, removed numerous instances of using Xenforo conditional statements for CSS
  • Various small bug fixes
Breadcrumb
  • Fixed a bug where the FontAwesome home icon would collapse in certain browsers
Header & Navigation
  • Improved CSS handling of the Xenforo navigation SplitCtrl dropdown arrow
Forum & Node List
  • Heavily reworked how margins and padding are handled for various node elements, including the main container block, Last Post area, read/unread icon containers, etc. This new method helps bring much better consistency to appearance and display, and assists the new Custom Node Background mode.
Property Groups
  • Added new custom properties to handle styling the navigation search input
  • Fixed several outdated Style Properties which were deprecated during recent version of Xenforo
Footer
  • Added further style support for [bD] Widget Framework blocks within the footer block layout
  • Dramatically improved code and CSS handling of the footer block layout
  • Spacing and margins between blocks and columns is now much more consistent, particularly when scaling between different device and screen sizes
  • Column positions and spacing are now handled separately depending on whether there are 2, 3, or 4 columns displayed (now automatically detected via Jquery)
  • Improved consistency of text and link colors within the footer
Mod Related
  • Changed image sprite based alert row backgrounds in the DB Tech Shoutbox to pure CSS gradient-based
  • Fixed a big where DB Tech Shoutbox alert rows would have incorrect text color for links
  • Updated and tested all supported mods under their latest versions
Theme Changes
  • Fixed an issue where button elements added via mods would inherit theme floating box-shadows
  • Added a solid background color (nlPrimaryBackgroundColor) to the slider to help with the new slider Letterbox mode
  • Updated numerous Style Properties to reflect values of current NulumiaBase framework
  • Added full sets of default Node Background images for DarkTabbed and all color preset themes. Images may be edited via the "nl_custom_node_backgrounds.css" template within Xenforo admin.
  • Added default customized styles for node elements to each theme when Custom Node Backgrounds mode is enabled

On Adding Custom Node Backgrounds

This is a very new feature and as all Nulumia features are handled via the theme (and not plugins!), the Custom Node Backgrounds will require a basic understanding of editing CSS.

For full instructions, please refer to the documentation/readme file in your download package.

What didn't make it into this patch
  • The new DarkTabbed presets are still in the works and won't be available until the next update. These include Yellow, Teal, Red, Purple, Orange, Jazzy Pink, Splash, Chroma, Slate, and Punk.
  • The image heading banner option for the new Popup Login form has been deactivated and won't be usable until the next patch
  • A method was in place to make the footer layout Top Row parallax background use a slow scrolling effect, instead of fixed position. There were some cross-browser issues regarding IE and Edge and this feature has been removed/delayed.
  • Earlier I announced that the Custom Node Backgrounds mode would have several node style presets to choose from, currently there is only one in place. You may still fully override styling of node elements (Title, Last Post box, links, container etc) for when this mode is enabled. However, I'd like to add up to three different layouts by default, thus giving the user more starter options and removing the need to keep editing the same properties to arrive at a desired result.
  • A feature to use fixed width or full width header and footer elements is being worked on for next patch. Currently elements such as the top bar, mod bar, and <footer> area are fixed at full width.
In consideration for future patches

Currently the Custom Node Backgrounds' css template contains three different sets of CSS entries -- one for using image backgrounds, another format for using solid background colors, and another preset for using alternating background colors (up to three colors, but more can be added -- i.e., nodes cycle between @primaryDark through @primaryLight in sequence). The user must currently uncomment the format they wish to use and comment out the other formats.

I may add a checkbox option to activate any of these modes at a time, and using separate templates for ease and convenience. I would enjoy hearing feedback from users on using this system and their recommendations.

Overview

This is a small update that adds a few fixes and improvements - breadcrumb icon fixes, auto center footer row content, and control the size of thread poster avatars.

Notice

As this update was released between a larger feature, you will notice a property group named [Nulumia] Logo Icon Slider. This group and its settings are currently inactive and produce no result. It will be released in the next update, which will give you the option to display Featured or Sponsor icons, logos, or other small image links anywhere in your theme.

Changelog

      • Removed a hard-coded reference for nav and breadcrumb home icon sizes. Sizes can now be controlled via [Nulumia] Fonts & Icons property group.
      • Improved handling of Jump Menu Icon box in the breadcrumb to better scale according to whether FontAwesome is enabled, or using the default image sprite
  • Theme Changes
    • Style now imports with the title "ThemeName - Parent (DO NOT EDIT)". This will be the default naming method moving forward, to help distinguish between a master/parent-style (which you should use for updates), and your child-style (for customizing)


Changing the avatar size

Making your post avatars larger is very simple!

Just browse to Style Properties -> Message Layout -> Avatar Holder

Then, change the left & right padding to be smaller or larger (they should also be the same!). Decrease the padding to make the avatars larger - recommended range is 10px-30px.

Addresses a bug where page link buttons do not display correctly when there are many pages of threads.
  1. Paste this in extra.css or znlextra.css:
    CSS:
    .PageNav .scrollable {
        height: 34px;
    }
  2. Style Properties -> PageNav, Link Groups and Tabs -> Settings -> Page Nav Link Width -> change to 30px
An automatic method will be in upcoming update.

Overview

The latest release of DarkTabbed introduces many new feature, most of which were introduced into NulumiaBase framework from the latest Simplicity Pro style. Most notably, you can now add full video background wallpapers to your theme (accepts .mp4 and .webm formats). Version 3.1.3 also offers greater control over various theme layouts, included regular and boxed-content format.

Previously, DarkTabbed used hard-coded layouts, and now has been converted to use NulumiaBase's own floating content system -- giving you more control of your theme. For anyone using the footer row feature, there's now an additional top row for extra content!

There's also much greater style support for adding [bD] Widget Framework blocks to the Nulumia Footer system, so widgets display nicely in your footer :). The default theme also has slightly enhanced colors and background images, making custom color themes appear more vibrant. Check out the full changelog below!

** BEFORE YOU INSTALL **

Please note that the footer Top Row item has been slightly reworked, with better styling and default content. After upgrading your theme, your top row content may appear somewhat different in the new design. It is recommended to close your board while upgrading and check the display of your content if you're using the footer Top Row feature.

For most purposes with simple centered Top Row content, it is sufficient to add
text-align: center;
to the extra CSS field of the Primary Top Row -> Inner Block style property.

Overview

NulumiaBase Framework v1.7 is here! NulumiaBase is the powerful theme framework which powers all styles available at the Nulumia.com shop. Version 1.7 is the largest release yet since the original 1.5 overhaul, and brings hundreds of new changes, bug fixes and enhancements.

While not vastly feature heavy, NulumiaBase 1.7 is all about consistency, uniformity, and polish.
This release focuses heavily on streamlining the Xenforo appearance -- virtually no small corner, tab or menu has been left untouched -- bringing much greater consistency to your forum when using a Nulumia style.

In addition, 1.7 does bring several new features, including FontAwesome Rich Text Editor, full style support for the Xenforo Resource Manager, Side by Side Node style improvements, and improved mobile message layouts!

A reminder on upgrading..

As always, you should install your theme in a parent-child configuration to safely receive upgrades. Never overwrite your only existing copy of your style, unless you absolutely know what you are doing!

In order to place your theme in a parent-child configuration, install the theme as normal, then deactivate it from user selection. Next, create a new child-style with your original theme as the parent. Then, make all customizations in your child-style, and set it to user selection. Only ever upgrade your hidden, parent style during upgrades.

Q: Is DarkTabbed coming to Xenforo 2?
A: Yes!
