well right click on that left area next to the block,then go for background image...
then you know what the name is,search it in your theme...that could be a part of your block,or theme.php or even your html header..if you have one.
when you find the image take it out but also the html part that creates that side area left and right as shown on your image.
so...its not only an image,but a few <td> as well....i guess.

Dude ?
Thats a good one...nice but i prefer just hitwalker.

Just look for the background image with the litle bit of html with it.

I got my start in PHP-Nuke, if you will, by fixing themes. It would seem there are two different mindsets at work, when it comes to themes -- graphic artists that have a gift from God when it comes to shapes and colors, but can't 'code' worth beans -- and ppl that lack imagination and originality, but can spot a 'code' problem a mile away, and know how to fix it.

Having said that, a common problem with many, many PHP-Nuke themes is they won't align themselves correctly. Often, for instance, the header and footer are one size, and the main body is another -- or they don't fully fill the page, sometimes by design; sometimes not

The reason you see this sort of thing so much is because there is NO easy answer. All themes are different. What works in one theme doesn't necessarily work in another, and so forth.

Generically speaking, what I try to do is trap a page inside a '100% width' table -- the whole thing -- then do away with the margins for this table. If you look at my production site, you will see this in effect.

In this case, I added an additional '100% width' table to the theme right after the body tag, and in the body tag itself, I added some code that does away wth the margins.

The table I added is simple:
Quote:
<table width=\"100%\" border=\"0\" cellpadding=\"0\" cellspacing=\"0\"><tr><td align=\"center\">


The code I added to the body tag is somewhat more complex. The body tag itself is simple enough:
Quote:
<b-o-d-y>


...however, in the CSS file I specified:
Quote:
b-o-d-y {
background-color: #000000;
color: #FFFFFF;
cursor: default;
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 12px;
margin-bottom: 0px;
margin-left: 0px;
margin-right: 0px;
margin-top: 0px;
scrollbar-arrow-color: #CCCCCC;
scrollbar-base-color: #313131;
text-decoration: none;
}


I did this for W3C compliance. If you don't care about compliance, you can use something like:
Quote:
<b-o-d-y marginwidth=\"0\" marginheight=\"0\" topmargin=\"0\" leftmargin=\"0\" rightmargin=\"0\" bottommargin=\"0\" ...>


Of course, once again, this may or may not work for you, depending on what the underpinnings of your theme are...

Heh! I don't know if this even addresses YOUR situation, but what the heck. It might help somebody...

Hi All great advice thanks for removing the left blocks, i have sorted them in the temp theme we are running,
i purchased a nuke theme from a link on nukecops but wot a head mash installing it.

ok templatemonster.com seem like they can't fix the theme or can't be bothered in my view, offered me a refund but i replied i'm not happy and want them to sort it,

pages are different widths to each other, right borders were hiding text in posts or any right blocks etc,

can anyone whos the dogs tell me if they can look at the theme for me and if it can be fixed? how much they will charge me?

any help on this greatly appreciated.

thanks

if you could please provide me a link to download your theme. I will attempt to get the bugs out for you. I will need the original package not one that you have edited in anyway. Thanks! Razz

I believe that you sent me the wrong theme. This one is a vehicles theme. It looks nothing like the one you posted at the top of this thread. Please check and resend if needed. This one is named 4779 located inside of a zip file called 7985. Thanks Smile
 
Bravo2zero
PostPosted: Fri Dec 30, 2005 11:05 am Reply with quote

yes the correct one is the 4779 folder, the outer folder and zip is 7985, that is how it came form the supplier, with instructions to unzip and upload the 4779 folder to the root/theme location as any other theme is done.

you are correct and it is a vehicle theme.

thanks B2Z

well, this theme cannot be a 100% theme. IS that what you wanted to do with it? Perhaps I am confused because I see now that the original poster here was not you, lol. What exactly is it that you want to do with this theme? Sorry for the confusion on my part.. that will teach me to glance and not read at posters ids..lol

lol, okay, so you just want the forum page to show the full size with no blocks on either side.. correct?

Okay, I have been spending time today on your theme. I do not believe that you will be happy with the results. IT appears to me that this theme is quite old. It is complety hard coded in so many places that making normal "tweaks" to it that a normal theme takes just fine, breaks yours. That is why you cannot achieve the full size forums amoung other things.

The theme also has no footer information. IT doesnt even want to accept the code without breaking. IT also has a pretty unattractive graphic error at the bottom of the footer around the keys. I am sure that if I were inclined to look further there would be more issues.

You said that they offered you a refund. If it were me, I would take the full refund. I dont know what you paid for it but I suspect it wont be worth the grief of trying to work this theme as you want.

I can understand why you like it in some regards. The header graphic is very nice. If I were you, and couldnt make my own theme, I would take that refund and find someone to make a new nuke theme using the same image concept. Then you would be sure that it would do what you wanted. There are some good designers out there, me included, who would be happy to work on a project like this for you. If you decide to you may look at my porfolio on my site and contact me if you want to discuss a new theme. Either that or post and ask people for suggestions on who should design your theme.

If you keep this current theme, I wish you the best of luck. I jsut think that you will spend a lot of extra cash trying to get someone to fix it how you want it to be. Either way, I am sorry that I couldn't do more for you.

i was dreading that outcome, thanks anyway, if i take the refund, i have to remove all traces of the the theme and sign the waiver to that fact or jail for me lol,

they are still looking into the fixing of it so may wait it out and see if they can sort it at their expense,

if not not sure what to do, as we already run the flash version on the start of the site, Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

how much approx for a theme based on that nature to match if poss are we talking about plz???

thanks

Hi, sorry about the outcome. I was just trying to be as honest as possible with you. To be clear though that is a splash page not a flash page. There is a big difference. Also, just as a side note, splash pages can interfere with getting your sites indexed in general. In case you didnt know that. For me a theme based on this that would be exclussive to your site would run about 75-125.00. IT all depends on the amount of details and or extras. Of course that is for a theme exclussive to you. I wish you the best of luck. I will be interested to see if they remake it for you. Razz
