OverClocked ReMix Re-Theming - Dark Skin 2010, OCR3, VGMix 2. Updated: 2012-02-27

Recommended Posts

Updated OCR3 and OCR Dark, added VGMix 2 theme:

Dark Theme

OverClocked ReMix 3 Theme

VGMix 2 theme

You'll notice there's some image replacement that needs to be done still, I'm working on it best I can.

In addition:

You'll find that, since the directory of the forums has changed, the sidebar removal NO LONGER works. I actually think removing the sidebar makes things look weird now, but if you still want to do it all you have to do is change the "phpbb" line to "forums".

PLEASE NOTE:

This can only be done if you are using Mozilla Firefox through the Stylish add-on or by editting the userContent.css.

There are also various ways to do it via Opera Browser. If you are using Opera and would like to use this style please read this and this.

FAQ:

After checking this thread out, I installed everything to try it. I can easily picture myself using this from now and ever.

If it weren't for this:

I haven't read the entire thread yet, so I don't I know if it's already been brought up, but this alone makes posting rather difficult.

you gotta switch to the standard editor, instead of the enhanced interface

it's under User CP > Edit Options

and it's at the bottom

I hope that is sarcasm. I mean...IE...Anyway thanks for this Rama! You rock!

That's not sarcasm. I need help implementing this. And I'm not going to be the only person to ask of this.

Not sure if IE has an option for this type of scripting. You'd have to wait for Rama on that one. Although I'd just recommend switching to FireFox.

Yeah, I read the more info on everything, and it never once mentioned IE. I think I'm screwed unless Rama knows something else.

I downloaded Firefox just so I can use this. It's running fine, and I've got the "Stylish" add-on.

But anytime I go to save it it yells at me:

The code you entered contains errors:

Expected color but found '#8d8c92repeat-x'. Expected end of value for property but found '#8d8c92repeat-x'. Error in parsing value for property 'background'. Declaration dropped.

And if I save anyway, the "style" doesn't take effect.

Halp halp.

When you apply the style, make sure you visit the website using http://www.ocremix.org/forums and then click on the forum you want. the links to each individual forum change when you use the style. So if you are accessing the forums using a bookmark right now, delete that bookmark, go to the forums using that link i said, and then click on the forum you want and you can bookmark that. Also remember you have to add both styles as Rama said in his post.

Well, clicking on your link solved the problem, but anytime I type into OCR and go into the forums any other way, other than using your link, it doesn't keep the skin.

Never mind about the other part. I've got it working. Looks great. Thanks for your help, guys.

Try clearing your cache with ctrl-F5.

Also, are you installing both of the scripts? Everywhere from the front page to the forums are showing up with the style installed, for me.

Hey Rama, how does the image replacement in the code work? I want to change the forum images that mark new posts in threads and the like back to the ones used in phpbb, but I'm not exactly sure how to go about doing that. I figured out how to change the New Post and Reply buttons, since the code was already there, but I don't know how to add new ones. Any ideas?

I wholeheartedly agree with this idea.

I figured out how to change the New Post and Reply buttons, since the code was already there, but I don't know how to add new ones. Any ideas?

That's actually what I planned to do, but I entirely forgot that PhpBB was STILL THERE.

Anyway code works as follows (Just using this as an example):

img[src="/images/projects/album_blood_on_the_asphalt_125.jpg"] {
background: url("http://ramaserv.thasauce.net/images/OCRCSS/OCR4-Contrast/RoFL.png") #000 top left no-repeat !important;
width: 0 !important;
height: 100px !important;
padding-left: 100px !important;
border: 1px solid #555 !important;
}

First line is the actual selector for the image. All images with the src of what. You can use "title" too if that's easier for you.

Next is the background image (new image) and the location, background color yadda yadda.

Width is ALWAYS equal to 0, padding-left is equal to the width of the new image, and height is equal to that of the new image.

It doesn't so much REPLACE the image as it does "shove it out of the way" =P. Anyway I'm gonna do this probably later tonight, or tomorrow anyway.

I got that error but saved it anyway and it works.

Yea, right now I loaded ALL the CSS that vB is running, and poke and prodded it where nessacary. Somewhere in the original code is something that Stylish doesn't like, so it drops it (I noticed in particular Stylish doesn't like how djp uses the background attribute) but this doesn't effect anything I've done.

Please remember, this is just my INITIAL release of the style update, and they'll definitely be more within the next few days.

Rama had an advance view of the vB forum. He was helping us out with testing. Thx again, Rama.

Is true, but not ENTIRELY why I was done so fast. I pretty much did the code while djpretzel had vB turned OFF to back up the database. I just left a page open with the forum still on it =P.

REALLY it went so quick because I had to edit almost none of style. The vB style is still in progress as it is and is pretty barebones. The whole edit can be broken down into just a few broad things:

1) Table Headers (black background stuff)

2) Sub headers (Grey background stuff)

3) TDs within table tboder (everything)

JUST editting those 3 things style 75% of the board. Also SINCE the style is new I really can't pinpoint individual things that need editting because djp hasn't classed or ID'd them yet (besides QUOTES and CODE and a few other thigns this isn't so much a problem with MY style but there's a few elements in the original OCR style with no padding that really bug me :( ).

When you apply the style, make sure you visit the website using http://www.ocremix.org/forums and then click on the forum you want. the links to each individual forum change when you use the style. So if you are accessing the forums using a bookmark right now, delete that bookmark, go to the forums using that link i said, and then click on the forum you want and you can bookmark that. Also remember you have to add both styles as Rama said in his post.

This is very important. The styles are URL SPECIFIC. They WILL NOT work for OCREMIX.ORG only WWW.OCREMIX.ORG. I'd have to put ALL the code in there twice to make that work, and it really just seem redundant to me.

Also: A lot of this wasn't mentioned in the first post because I figured most people already knew, apparently I'm gonna have to re-write it later anyway.

Updatedthe style to include any image replacement that I could steal from PhpBB.

This basically means all post icons except "threads you've posted in." I'll make new images for those asap.

Update: ALL post icons now replaced. Apologies to anyone who doesn't like the NEW post images, I did my best. I'm trying to keep all the images with transparency as GIFs, and I'm not really The Coop so I'm not skilled with pixel art -_-.
