  • What is different about this upload from the original? I tried installing the original and it corrupted my database. So, I am a bit weary about testing this one out.

  • Sorry but why would anyone want a facebook knock off anyway.  Just my opinion I could be wrong.

  • @goofbucket ~ I was thinking the exact same thing.  It looks like there was a lot of hard put into this - but still.....

  • yah, I agree, nice work but facebook has the niche locked up.  One use might be as a click dog.  URL it something like faceboook.com or any version of a typo and hope to get impressions.

  • I think you have done a remarkable work in here.
    I have tried to bring the register form into the index page for few days but haven’t been able to manage it.
    Can you give me a little hint how you made it.

    Regards

    @The_one, thanks for trying the theme,  but the credit should go to Baltej Singh who designed it. but nowdays dont where he is ..... He as a great personality.... who submitted this gr8 job... He has been Banned from the elgg community....

  • This actually looks pretty cool, but I would never have my registration form out naked like that without having CAPTCHA or something to guard against the obvious...   Greeat job to all who have worked on it.  Would be great to see some color scheme variations.  Maybe a darker theme..

  • Your right this is a facebook knock off .. BUT .. its all about layout. Yo get it and install it and edit the graphcs it uses to make your own look! So at least you know the layout and navigation is working fine, just find the graphic files and edit them to make the site NOT look like facebook.

    Well done Baltej and Betty.

  • I am having a problem with this theme..

    On the TopBar, the tools menu doesn't drop down, The "green pop-up system messages" are not clickable to "dismiss", and the elggchat isn't working with this theme.  Does anyone know how to fix this? Thank you so much!!

    I love the look of the theme! Thanks

  • AntiFM, YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank YOU!!!!!!

  • I managed to remove the "latest groups". Check here http://www.buddhaland.asia

    BUT when I do the same with "latest files" or "latest blogs" it doesn´t work :-(

    I post here the code so you can just delete the code.

    I try to remove the "latest files" and "latest blog post" and "latest video"

    I only want the picture, login form and latest users.

  • Hi AntiFMRadio, my hommie!!!
    You put me on the right track!

    Thank you so much. We did it!!!

    A few comment to help others.

    Don´t remove the codes like

    <?php
        if(is_plugin_enabled('file')){
    ?>

    OR

    <?php
        if(is_plugin_enabled('blog')){
    ?>

    This gives you the WHITE/BLANK PAGE.

    Go to video setting and deselect Show on homepage.

    That´s it!!!
    Awesome!

  • Guys i'm getting a problem with Elgg 1.6 with this theme, it seems javascript don't work any more ( messages can't be dismmised, and the dropdown for tools menu doen't work anymore after activating plugin)

  • Yess like your theme/template here But help Please

    I am having some problems with getting it to work all the way. Is any one using it with 1.61. For some reason I can not get the wedgeds to move and save when you edit user profile or change the default wedges in admin. It is like the script not sure if it is java or not is broken or something that is the only thing not working. How do I make this template work with other plugins wedgets.

    Thanks for your help
