Elegance Theme for Elgg 1.8 v1.0

  • @ azycraze. good work buddy. i like your work in displaying the registration form in lightbox.One question. Where have you implemented the tips. I mean when i activate the plugin and put my cursor on the menu no tips are displayed.

  • The tip can be seen only in links in which title attribute is set.

    Just hover over 'report this' link to see tips.

  • @ azycraze thanks. now i can see the tips. 

  • Thanx Azycraze.  I have installed the theme and it works fine.  However I can't get the social.gif image to display.  Is there a reason why this does not show?  Come to think of it the ad.gif might not also be displaying.  I've checked file permissions on the images and the directory and everything looks OK.

  • Great theme. Thanks¡¡ ;) I modify a little code in mine web. Sorry for my english "google" :)

  • I'm using this theme and I am delighted with his platform. but that became my problem is how to put the re-chaptcha on the registration form. ?

    Moreover there is no close button (X) in the popup registration form, how to closed it ?

    but I am happy with this theme, as lightweight and more search engine friendly. I recommend these plugins.

    thank you

  • @Komarudin Surya

    Close it by clicking anywhere outside the popup box.

  • is it possible to change the colors?

  • I'm looking to add my logo in the top header but I can't seem to find the right document to edit.

    3) How to make the menu's accessbile to only logged in users.

    Thanking you in advance for your kind help...

    To make menu accessible to logged in users use the following in mod\elegance_theme\views\default\page\default.php


    <?php if (elgg_is_logged_in()): ?>

    <?php echo elgg_view_menu('site'); ?>

    <?php endif; ?>

  • Hi,

    Could you please let me know how I'll be able to edit, I mean what is the code that I have to enter to add an image as logo.

    Also, in the demo image shown above, there is a banner showing "Connect with new friends" and login form is on the left side (bottom) and next to that newest member and latest blog post.

    Request you to kindly let me know how I can have the same appearance for my website as the home page does not have the same look.

    And how to change the ad banner shown in the bottom of the website. I have 2 images (ad1 and ad2), please let me know how to add the images in place of the ad banner

    Thanking you in advance for your kind help...

    With regards


  • To insert your own logo


    1. Copy file 'views/default/page/elements/header_logo.php'.

    2. Paste it in  mod/elegance_theme/views/default/page/elements/ folder.

    3. Edit header-logo.php

    4. Replace the following code

    <h1><a class="elgg-heading-site" href="<?php echo $site_url; ?>"><?php echo $site_name; ?></a></h1>


    <a class="elgg-heading-site" href="<?php echo $site_url; ?>"><img src="your-logo-path" /></a>

  • To add the images in place of the ad banner.

    Simply replace the ad.gif image in graphics folder with your own ad.

    To view your page exactly as in demo image please enable custom index, members, and blogs plugin.

    Please do let me know your feedback.Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your reply, after enabling custome index the look and feel of the website is complelty gone. I mean the "3 column river activity" Plugin is getting overlapped etc....

    And with regard to the replacing of the ad image in the bottom of the page, I have done as per your instructions but the allignment of the images is gone. Check the image attached. 

    Is this some issue with CSS, if yes please let me know what should be done. 


  • Hi,

    I was able to figure it out, and had solved the issue.

    Actually, I was using 2 images and in the footer of the website I had used <Div> tags for each of the image and was supposed to use only one.

  • so all of it has to be edited before you upload and put it on your site wow maybe you need to list that .next time it seems to be most people dont post much about there stuff 


Always behind my dreamz....
