Xenforo Wordpress Theme

Discussion in 'Styles [Archive]' started by D.O.A., Dec 11, 2010.

    Xenpress (latest: version 2.1)
    A wordpress theme for xenforo.
    [no longer supported or maintained -- no time sorry]


    Demo
    http://tak79.com/
    Install instructions.
    http://tak79.com/xenforo-wordpress-theme/
    Setting up the navigation menus
    http://tak79.com/the-xenpress-menu/

    The design is minimal but the rest is heavyweight. It is recommended you run a caching plugin along with this theme. Any questions or help needed, just ask. The theme requires configuration to get it going (xenpress settings) but most is self-explanatory.

    Next version (2.2) should include the fixes for above and possibly a jquery registration slider at the top of the page similar to xenforo forums (If I can link it all up).

    Nice work D.O.A, it would even better if the sidebar region has the light blue backround like the article section has. How does this work ? Does it work with specific plugin & bridge ?

    Thanks, will try out your sidebar suggestion too, it does look a bit plain. I have a heavily modified version of this theme working on a a live site with xfrocks wordpress user add on from here,
    http://xenforo.com/community/threads/wordpress-3-bridge.5398/ so you can basically style it using the available member functions for wordpress, and forum users can comment. Pulling the xenforo avatars would be nice but for now I go with gravatars.

    I've got another old theme that lets users submit content for moderation/approval from the mainpage with a custom drop down form so I'll try to wrangle that into a future version. For now my main priority is getting what I have working in IE before release :mad:

    A question, how did you apply the cufon article titles :)
    Is this a wordpress plugin or have you set the wordpress style for it.

    It's in the theme, although it's easy to do. http://cufon.shoqolate.com/generate/

    feel free stealing my source files from tak79.com.

    PHP:
    <script src="http://my.sources/cufon.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="http://my.sources/Graublau_Web_400-Graublau_Web_700.font.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">Cufon.replace('h1');</script>
    PHP:
    h1 {
    color#176093;
    font-size2em;
    font-weightbold;
    }
    PHP:
    <h1>something headerish</h1>
    done. :)

    Thanks Digital Doc, I use breadcrumbs for category display category > video etc if someone lands on the page, for navigation purposes (I dont display categories in a tab list, only in a drop down that may be missed) but it's only about 8 lines of code to remove if you dont like it ;)

    update...

    I've taken a few ideas here on board, ditched the bread crumb, styled the sidebar and footer area. Finally got tabbed navigation working and highlight for categories, pages etc. Added support for 4 widget positions in the footer, and another few spots are needed for the right hand sidebar(s) it's all hard coded in the style there the moment.

    because I'm hooking this into the forum with registrations and stuff, and my site has people publish content themselves, I've got some places where user info appears, on the frontpage and a kinda author bio. These are all easily removed, in fact the whole thing is easy to edit.

    I've just updated tak79.com with what I've got so far anyway :)

    I figure I can add 8 spots for widgets now (another two under the articles), the rest you can hardcode :D

    Looks great. Please also include Adsense space for header banner, sidebar 250 X 250 or 300 X 250 banner and inside article banner.

    Would it be possible to add the xenforo alerts on the wordpress page in any way? Like beside "log out"?

    Version 1.0 will be released tomorrow, ran out of time tonight, a few small things left to do.
    http://tak79.com/xenforo-wordpress-theme/

    I'm going to do that in the next release, 1.0.1 should be done by this weekend :)

    hmmm awesome idea, I'm guessing it would take a lot of javascript trickery and PHP, and xfrocks wordpress bridge to create that. Way beyond my capabilities no doubt lol.

    +1 I think it's a cool idea, but that mandate is more of a bridge thing than a style thing.
    Sounds like DOA would consider doing the style work if the backend bridge work was setup.

    Could this thread be renamed from Xenforo Wordpress Theme to
    Xenpress: Xenforo Wordpress Theme ?
