Link to the theme
Amber is a modern theme with a side-centered user-info part rather than one on top, plus use of shadow effects and curves. There is also a sidebar where you can insert your own html code.



I just installed the Amber theme, it's great - thanks  :)

Which pictures are you referring to? :)


The message icons.
They work when you're replying/posting a msg (standard/exclamation/etc)
but then in the actual forum and the posted topics they don't work


hey nice job bloc! ;)

Only members can access your forum, so I cannot reproduce the error.



great theme guys. however i have a slight problem. i want to change the banner and also delete the text currently in place (the bit that says "my community") and then the date and time. Is this possible?

I would be really grateful for any help


The newest version of SMF is 1.0.7 i think.  Anyway thats what im running.  This theme does look nice, but on 1.0.7 when you enter the forum there is a pic missing next to every thread.  I dont know what it is.  Any suggestions?  gov.rayard.com is the link


I may have found my problem with the errors I posted -
Does Amber have a version that will work on 1.0.7?
It really is the theme I'd like to use..

Its only made for SMF 1.1RC1-RC2 I am afraid. It will sort of work on 1.0.7..but give errors on things.



Im running SMF 1.1 RC2 with the Amber theme.  What i would like to do is replace the search feature on the left side with a custom flash script.  I got it to look the way i want by copying the source coe via IE and dropping it in a text file and editing the code then making it index.php and uploaded that.  It looked perfect but then no one was able to log in or out.  Apparently i messed something up so i put the old index back.  These are my current forums followed by a link to the custom index.php file.

How would i PROPERLY edit the index file to do this without disturbing anything else on the forums?
Any help on this would be extremely appreciated.  Thanks.


No, you can't edit index.php..you rather edit index.template.php inside the Amber theme folder.

hello! :D im using this theme as my default.. but i have a slight problems. everytime i click the reply button, i have to log-in again and again. im not the only one who's experiencing this kind of problems. my members are asking me about this kind of issue also. we love the theme and we wanna keep it as our default. i dunno if what's wrong.. if you can just help me guys. otherwise, thanks to Bloc! the theme looks so good..


Hey bloc thanks, that helped alot.  I got it working perfectly.  Thanks so much.  I have one last issue though, I cant seem to change the name of the cell on the side.  Since it was the search block, the tab says "Search"  I want to change that.  I can find where i would change it for News and the other side blocks, but for some reason I cant find it for the "Search" block which is now my custom flash block.  Please help out, its the last thing i need lol.  How can i edit that "Search" tab to say what i need it to?


Its in fact just a language string..so find this and change it:
<b>', $txt[182], '</b>


BLOC!!  Thanks xD  You rock


Is there a way to make it so You get a pop up when you recieve a personal message via the admin panel without having to edit every users account manually?  I see that i can edit their personal messaging options myself, but that would take a long time to do, and i would like it so the user cant turn this feature off.  PMs arent send often on my forums and when they are its usually for an important reason, I want to make sure people see them as soon as they login.  Thanks.


Cool thanks..Me loves it
