Arras Wordpress Theme for XenForo

Discussion in 'Styles [Archive]' started by Junior, Apr 10, 2011.

    This is the XenForo version of the wordpress theme Arras.

    I've constructed the theme in two versions. One with the original XenForo navigation, and another with a customized navigation drop down to better match the original theme. Live demos of both themes are available here:

    Arras - XenForo Navigation
    Arras - New Navigation

    You may log into the demos with the following accounts, or you can create your own!

    Did you get the permission of the original theme developer for this?

    Upon completion of the template and ensuring he was still ok with the release:
    I'm personally not a fan of recreating themes but this one was too beautiful to not share with XenForo. Sorry for the quotes ^ ^ I'm sure a simple yes would have done for most but that should satisfy the rest.

    can you make an option, that we can upload our own Logo and set the Path to the Logo in the Settings?

    Open up template logo_block. Replace all with:
    <div id="header">
    <div class="pageWidth">
    <div class="pageContent">
    <div id="branding" class="clearfix">
    <xen:include template="ad_header" />
    <xen:hook name="header_logo">
    <div class="logo"><a href="{$logoLink}">
    <span><xen:comment>This span fixes IE vertical positioning</xen:comment></span>
    <img src="@headerLogoPath" alt="{$xenOptions.boardTitle}" />
    <span class="helper"></span>
    This will take the logo assigned by the style vars and center it vertically within the height of the header. I have not tested it on an image larger than the height of the header.

    Such a clean and light-weight skin! If only there was a script allowing XenForo to take over WP comments. :(
    I know it has nothing to do with your skin.

    I'm satisfied with your response, but I do have a quick question:
    I don't use WordPress, but I'd imagine this Arras skin on WordPress has some kind of copyright? Has he allowed you to recreate it without any form of copyright necessary? That'd be strange... especially if it's enforced on the WordPress version.

    zy.sg is the original creator, and he asked permission before posting it (or thats what I take from the reply).
  16. James

    James Well-Known Member

    Yeah, I'm aware of that. I was just wondering about this:
    I wasn't aware whether the original creator issued permission for it to be recreated copyright-free, that's all.

    Very nice skin. But please do change the default status forum icons.

    wow thanks, Arras is one of my fav wordpress themes so to have one for xenforo too = AWESOME! :D

    No worries I know exactly what you're asking. The arras wordpress themes has the option inside the wordpress admin skin manager to remove the copyright. This is not a problem.

    No problem!

    You know, I knew someone would mention that and of you we're one I figured! I kinda like the taste of them on this skin but I would be happy to whip up something else by tomorrow. Forgive me. :oops:
