Release Notes

Made compatible with Mobilize (place Easy Theme at the bottom of your plugins list - with Mobilize imediately above it)

Optimised The Custom Index page, so that the order makes more sense on a mobile.

Made a small change to the Walled Garden page.

  • Thanks. Yes it does appear on standard theme I suppose. Unless if i am mistaken and I was using a different theme. Please help me here

  • I've had a look, and the search box doesn't appear on the standard theme either.  It would probably be better (and quicker) to ask about the search box on the mobilize plugin page.

  • There is a white box behind my logo and it is very significant on Mobilizer. Is there a way to remove that box without removing the link or the logo?

  • Try this...

    Open the 'mod/easytheme/actions/easytheme/save.php' file.

    Look for this bit:

    .elgg-heading-site, .elgg-heading-site:hover {
        font-size: 2em;
        line-height: 1.4em;
        color: #000;
        font-style: italic;
        font-family: Georgia, times, serif;
        text-shadow: 1px 2px 4px #333333;
        text-decoration: none;
        background: #fff;  
        padding: 20px;
        padding-left: 15px;

    Remove that 'background: #fff' line. Save the file.

    Then go to the Easytheme settings page and "Save" the settings.

  • Cool. Thank you.

    Is there a way to make the header 100% without making streching the body? Like default Elgg theme.

    When I set the 2nd setting to 100%, the body is also streched currently and some images that I use get distorted. When I set it to theme default then it gives a bit narrow look....

    Also, how can I make the surrounding space the same as the central area space and get rid of the borders, so that it looks seamless and gives a wider impression? I have changed the Centre panel :: What colour do you want for the left and right border? to #FFFFFF but apperantly it is not the correct way to do it.


  • I have same question on making the header 100% without the rest.

    @inca For surrounding space, modify the background file to white and upload (option 9)


  • You can do it with css.  probably something like:

    .elgg-page-default .elgg-page-body > .elgg-inner {

        width: 90%;

        margin-left: 20px;

        margin-right: 10px;           


    In the file "mod/easytheme/actions/easytheme/save.php".  (Whenever you make changes to that file you need to go to the easytheme settings page and save the page.)


  • The top-bar color change doesn't seem to work (Option # 18).  Running elgg 1.9.

  • Hi Elimist,

    Easy Theme doesn't change the elgg topbar colour. Option # 18 changes the colour of the module box when you are using the custom_index / front_page plugin.

  • HI. Thx for this really cool theme. All is perfect. But one problem i have.

    On the user profile and dashboard i can not set teh widgets in 2 rows only in one row.

    On the profile page all widgets are set under the profile image. I can not set it to the right side .

    Please can you write me how to fix this. 
    i have also tested it with 100% wide but does not help at all.


    thx for your help

    regards Chris


  • Hi Chris,

    I will upload a new version of the theme as soon as I have the time. For now...

    Remove the "mod/easytheme/views/default/css" folder.

    Then, add the following code to the "mod/easytheme/views/default/easytheme/css.php" file. Put it *after* the php close (?>).

    .elgg-page-header {
        padding: 0px 0px;    

    .elgg-page-default .elgg-page-footer > .elgg-inner {    
        border-top: 0px;



  • I too love this theme and sure hope it will be upgraded to work with 1.10 sometime soon.  Or give us an idea which files to change to make the upgrade.

    Thanks Bob

  • I've uploaded an updated version of Easy Theme here

    I'm currently working on a completely new version of EasyTheme and it should be finished, and here on the Elgg site for download, with a week or two.
