  • @alexandregnb, for edit css it's better you use chrome (inspect element - shortcut F12 ). You can change the font-size height of header, or anything like you wanted to do. But remember it just change a view in chrome way, not to changed the css forever.

    This is an example :



    For find the the css, use file seek (find in google), this application let you to know where to find the code of file that you must to change exactly.

  • @kuncoro Thanks, had responded to your post erroneously before but now deleted, its very good tip, will help me in many other projects besides this current, thanks

  • alexandregnb: Change the order of the code of each item for organize (from bottom to top)

    Im using some elements on a theme Ive already been working on, but can I just ask, how do you get the pages.gif icon to display next to the comment, when someone creates a page?..

    • No option to comment posts of group
    • The "toggle" of comments in the post of creation group ("user" has created group "groupname") controls the remaining "toggles" of comments.
    • Button answer in group discussions is not visible on wall (is visible by clicking on "edit" for another answer)
    • When editing responses for discussions of group creates a new response.

  • FIX Gray dots in the inputs change password account, new password and confirm password

    delete mod/cool_theme/views/default/core

  • @ Ve First of all thankyou for taking out your valuable time in fixing the bugs of this theme. I want to ask how can i change the option of adding the widgets only to admin. Secondly the widgets are being added to dashbaord page in sidebar_alt column but not showing the contents. For example if i add the friends widget then the title of widget can be seen but no content or let say no "friend icon". This doesnot happen in other pages ex blog pages etc.

  • coolsam001: Thanks for your comment.

    I have not been able to use widgets in this version of the theme. But the widget manager plugin has the option adding the widgets only to admin.

  • @ Ve thanks for your reply. However the widget manager has admin option for group page only. 

  • coolsam001 you're right

  • In Firefox the links "Register" and "Forgot password" appear displaced (in Chome is ok)

    FIX Edit: mod/cool_theme/views/default/cool_theme/css.php

    and add margin-top: 18px;

    #facebook-header-login .elgg-menu{position:absolute;margin-left:-160px;margin-top: 18px;}

  • I can't get the icons to show. I've changed the WISB to cool_theme in the css file but still nothing.

    Also does anyone know how to change the "News feed" name and add the friend requests icon on the top?

  • @Alex: For visible icons -> View page 3 then run upgrade.php

    Friend requests icon on the top appears only when there is friend requests.

    Change text "News Feed": edit mod/cool_theme/languages/en.php

    'newsfeed' => 'News Feed',

    then run upgrade.php

  • Can any1 help me how to add widget to the sidebar_alt

    thnxx in advance...

  • Im looking for a chat plugin for this theme , others chat plugins need bottom_bar installed , im an elgg rookie ,  for example twizanex-bottom-chat doesn´t work properly .


    thanks !!!

  • Its almost been above 120 days when this plugin was updated, Do we see an upgrade in this plugin for 1.8.11 incorporating the latest feature in it.   Any help will be appreciated

  • @Federico B, thanks for your concern. Can you explain what you mean by "twizanex-bottom-chat doesn´t work properly"

    By the way, there is another New plugin that you should try with this theme. It will redirect your users to a logout page just like facebook does. For more information, find it here :

    Let me know if you need any help.


  • I found when using this theme some browsers would display the Friend, Messages and Notification icons behind (under) the search bar at the top of the screen. The fix for this overlap was a quick CSS fix in the Cool Theme mod. Specifically I altered the file mod/cool_theme/views/default/search/css.php to look like this:

    Hope that is of some help to others.

  • Het, guy is it possible to upgrade the theme to latest Twitter bootsrap

    if plz tell me the procedure
