Module: Easy Color Scheme Manager
August 08, 2007 06:22AM
This module allows you to create a color scheme, based on any template, preview it, and apply it to your forum. You can also save and reapply different schemes.

When you first open this module it will pull the color variables from your currently applied template. These colors will be saved to the "DefaultColors" scheme. Note that any colors found in the template that use a color name rather than the hexadecimal value will be converted to their respective hexadecimal values. You can then change any color by selecting it or clicking in the color code field. You can either click one of the colors shown in the color table provided or enter your own color names or hexadecimals values (be sure to include the #). Once you have chosen your colors you can save them as a color scheme then preview that scheme or apply it to your forum. The currently applied global color scheme is always shown at the top of the settings page.

As always, requests for added/improved features are welcome. Either post here or email (email included in readme).

This module can also be used in Phorum 5.1 but you need v1.03 which is found here.

Easy Color Scheme Manager v2.01 - Added Ability to Change Emerald Background Images
August 09, 2007 03:23PM
I have finished v2.01 with these changes:
- Added the ability to edit the background images used in the Emerald template. You can make your own gradient images or a solid image by using the same upper and lower colors.

- Fixed a bug which would cause errors if a deleted scheme was applied to a forum or template but not removed from the forum or template.

I have uploaded a screenshot of the Emerald template with my own "Emerald_Crimson" color scheme applied. Please note that this mod will not recolor the Phorum logo. That would have been a lot of coding which is probably unnecessary as I assume you will have your own logo to replace it with.



Please note, if you are using the alpha version of Phorum 5.2, you will need the latest release of the Emerald template which supports variables for the background images.

The file at the top of the page contains the latest version.

I seem to be having trouble editing the background images in the emerald template. I've got the new version of the template, and have tried turning the module off and back on again.

Maybe I'm being blind to something, but I can't see a way to edit these images at all.

Any suggestions?

Tom.

Tom,

In the settings page, goto to the line "Get default settings from a specific template:" and select the Emerald template, then click "Get Settings". This will ensure you have the proper settings.

Now, edit the settings labeled: header_image_upper_color/_lower_color for the header image, top_image_upper_color/_lower_color for the top image, and message_image_upper_color/lower_color for the message image. You will see in the default that the upper color is a light green and the lower a darker green. In my "Crimson" scheme shown above the upper color is a light red and the lower a dark red. Save these settings and the mod will create new header/top/message images as needed (aka only if you change the colors) in the mods tmp_images folder.

Let me know if this helps or not.

nothing, the options for header_image_upper_color etc dont appear. I'm using an up to date copy of 5.2-dev with the latest updates to the template.

Shall keep trying, maybe I'm missing something obvious.

Ok, looking through the dev site I found that the templates were changed a little differently than what I had originally asked for and this was throwing off this mod. I will have a patched version up shortly, sorry for the trouble.

Azumandias, you might want to check the change by maurice in [www.phorum.org] .
It was a faulty commit from me previously.

Thomas, thanks for the update. I guess I can now retract v2.01a as that was the only issue it addressed. ;)
