I know it's kinda spamish, but who cares about a couple of links in exchange to a great skin :). Anyone who doesn't like it may change or remove them, it's a free skin after all.
This skin was really hard to convert, it took me about a week. The result is lots of configurable settings, must see it ;)

is it only me or the skin is buggy ?

Problems:
1. Posts not being paginated, instead displays it as whole.And despite the fact that it displayed everything already, still displays "more" even in single post mode.

2. Long pages (also posts possibly) gets truncated, and doesnt display the whole content no matter what..

Example :

http://www.tilqi.com/ozlusozler.php/thomas-alva-edison/thomas-alva-edison-s998aouml-zu-buyuk-fikirler-kaslarda-yatar

Explanation:

Code

Büyük fikirler kaslarda yatar.<!--nextpage-->Great ideas originate in the muscles.

See ? the post is actually two pages, but it shows them all at once, and even if you are at the single post mode, it still displays the "more" text..

2. Example

http://www.tilqi.com/ozlusozler.php/al-capone-kapon/al-capone-tum-ozlu-sozleri#c192

Code

* Bir adamı sabah gördüğümde tesadüf olarak kabul ederim, öğlen aynı adamı bir daha görürsem kuşkulanırım. Akşam karşılaştığımızda tereddütsüz silahımı çekip vururum. Tesadüflere inanmam
 
    * Zararın neresinden dönersen dön, dönek derler.
 
    * Çocukken her aksam yatmadan önce Tanrı'ya bana bir bisiklet vermesi için dua ederdim. Bir gün Tanrı'nın çalısma tarzının bu olmadıgını anladım. Ertesi gün gittim kendime yeni bir bisiklet çaldım ve her aksam yatmadan önce Tanrı'ya günahlarımı affetmesi için dua ettim.
    * Ayağımda ayakkabım yok diye üzülürdüm hep,yolda giderken ayağı olmayan bir adam gördüm ve onun için bu haldeyim

3. How does it "relate" posts anyway ? That related posts embedded near comments is not properly functioning.

Have some other issues as well, but i dont know if it's just me

1. Disable all rendering plugins and find the broken one. Clear prerendered posts cache first.
You can see paginated post here http://demo.sonorth.com/blog2.php

2. All demo posts display excerpts and teasers in post list mode and full content in single mode.

3. Related posts get selected by tags, probably within the same blog. The default b2evo feature used.

speaking of which, i would really love to see a more accurate related plugin..By which i mean, one not depending on tags, but uses actual content to relate posts with posts/ads/etc.. sparks anything ? i am all in if you are willing to develop one, and if i can chip in anywhere.

sth like a combined score of:
tags + most used words in content + title words + other parameters that could make the results even more accurate

The plugin will need to search through the entire database (blog), count words in title and content, compare post properties, make some calculations on each reload! It will work even slower than my Advanced search plugin ;)

We can probably cache the results in a separate table and update them each time a post is created/edited/deleted, we can even do this with a cron job.

Sounds like a lot of work to me, I'm currently busy with [url=http://www.thumbshots.ru]website thumbnails[/url] project.

BTW you may want to check my another unreleased/abandoned plugin :)
It allows you to easily cross-link posts. It searches for specified keywords and links to either individual post when only one post matches or to a search results list if multiple posts match the term

Download [url=http://www.sonorth.com/travel/download/4BH6ISCBH5]Crosslink plugin[/url]

It doesn't have any GUI so just use the following syntax in posts

Code

You can [easylink:cat, duck, some other, keywords here]click here[/easylink] to view posts about cats and ducks.

Agreed.Making that each time should put one hell of a load on the page.Caching makes sense.

Imagine how it sounds to me :D It's obviously a very complicated task to make such a plugin function smoothly.OTOH it sounds very useful and seo friendly to me.Maybe we can get it started sometime and see where it goes.

Good luck with your thumbnails project.Not to discourage you or anything, but how's it different than hundreds of other thumbnail shot website/services available ?

I'll make sure to test the plugin..Sounds useful and related to the "related" functionalities (:

Well, i've cleared the prerendered cache , nothing changed.. weird..
i dont have any rendering plugins running other than default 'texturize, autolinks etc." stuff. And i dont run any front end plugins at all.. I 've even tried disabling 'usual suspects' but still doesn't work..

I would understand if there were a js conflict and the tabs etc. didnt work, but pages not working ? no full content on single mode ? those are really strange, cant think of any reason

It's the only [u]Russian[/u] thumbnails service that actually works, plus it has many advantages over competitors (mostly for East European and Asian users). Won't advertise the features here :)

i see.. definitely gotta have a domestic equivalent for major websites.That's why i am building that quote index, tilqi.com already, there's no particular quotes website other than the leading wikiquote.which offers no additional functions in terms of browsing quotes, it's basically just a simple archive.

This Skin is really cool and at the moment is used for my main blog skin http://www.j24bail.com/blog

My only gripe is that on your demo blog it shows a small preview then has the click to see more on my blog it shows all content which some of my post are extremly long and take time to load. if there is a way to make it where only a partial preview of the post is seen that would be great.

The web Preview plugin is nifty does pretty good job on most sites a few it can't render. and when you click the twitter link it opens in same window.

Shame it doesn't open in new window, but anyway keep up the great work.

Thanks for your feedback

if there is a way to make it where only a partial preview of the post is seen that would be great.

Go to Blog settings > SEO and select "Post excerpts" in "Main page / post list" section.

The web Preview plugin is nifty does pretty good job on most sites a few it can't render.

Can you please point to a post where the preview doesn't work?

and when you click the twitter link it opens in same window.

You can change it in index.main.php , line 58

Code

class="nav-extra twitter"

replace with this

Code

class="nav-extra twitter" target="_blank"

This is the first release of the skin, all bugs will be fixed in later versions ;)

Just bringing my comment over from the extend section. (you put the wrong link to forums, by the way!)

You should widgetize the header so someone could put their banner/logo there and it acts as the blog title with its original click-able abilities.

Maybe also allow the blogger to choose the social networks they use so that more sliding icons can be placed (linkedin, facebook...)

Can author avatars still show up on the individual post page as well.

Also, as a chick I ask for pink as one of the color options Wink

Hi there,

I'm trying to embed a National Debt Clock widget in the skin which worked fine in my prior skin but not in this one. It seems a little bit like the skin is overriding the widget's color choices.

Any thoughts?

The widget I'm trying to use is here:
http://www.facingup.org/national-debt-clock

You can see what it looks like at the bottom of the left sidebar on my site at http://rossputin.com

But another widget from a different site had the same problem.

Also, can someone tell me how I might change the width of the sidebars?

Thanks!

  <tr style="background:#ffffff">

The widget code worked great.

One other question for you, and I'm guessing the answer is in styles.css again, but I'm not an expert...

How can I change the layout of the stuff at the very top of the web page, i.e. the blog name, the sub-title, etc (such as font and font size), and change the background image?

Also, is there a way to use a different background image for the top than for the sides?

Thanks!

So far, this skin has everything I've ever needed. It's the best I've ever used, and it will probably make it to all of my blogs.

How's the header/logo addition coming? That's the only thing that's missing at the moment.

Good work!

You can change the top image by replacing the original /images/header.jpg with your own.

To add your logo edit the following code in styles.css

Code

/*** LOGO & HEADLINE ***/
 
#site-title{padding:4em 0 3.6em 0; position:relative}

Code

/*** LOGO & HEADLINE ***/
 
#site-title{padding:4em 0 3.6em 0; position:relative; background: no-repeat left center url(http://myimage.url/image.jpg) }

Another question, and please excuse my amateur understanding of the code (I get by with help). Is there a way to remove the blog name from the stop of the skin (the Title field)? I have my Title field blank because it conflicts with the logo I put up, which replaced the need for the Title to appear on the skin. But having the Title field blank also causes other issues with ping and such. How would I keep that from showing up on the skin without using the method I've already taken (keeping in mind I've put my logo/header up there)?

Thanks again.

Hey Sam,

When I enable the "user tools" widget, it doesn't display "register" (including when I'm not logged in.)

Any thoughts on how to get that working?

(Since I'm going to require users to be registered to post comments, it's sorta important.)

Also, is there some way to remove the "Admin" link from user tools for people who are not logged in or are logged in but don't have admin privileges?

Best,
Ross

Hey Sam,

The "register" thing worked. Thanks for that.

How about only showing "Admin" for people who are logged in and have Admin privileges? (It's not that big a deal; if this can't be done, I just won't show Admin at all.)

Thanks again,

I've checked the code, the admin link will not appear if user is not logged in or if user doesn't have perms to view the backoffice.

Can you give a link where the "admin" link is displayed for visitors?

I don't know why the "admin" link is there.
Open /inc/widgets/widgets/_user_tools.widget.php and edit the following

PHP

if( is_logged_in() )
{
    user_admin_link$this->disp_params['item_start'], $this->disp_params['item_end'], $this->disp_params'user_admin_link' ] );
}

This should at least hide the link from visitors

Hi,

As I wrote you before, post links are broken in your blog.
Please open Blog settings > URLs and SEO tabs, and compare those to demo blog.

The skin has nothing to do with it.

URLs tab ->

Sam, thanks so much for your help... the links are now working beautifully. And thank you for being patient even though it wasn't an issue to do with the skin. It was great to be able to compared your demo blog settings, and use them to get things working.

All the best.

Hi,

I'm using your skin at http://www.insidesql.org/blogs/. The homepage aggregates most of the various blogs below this top-level. I noticed today that the category list on the right was not displayed correctly. I guess due to the number of list items the height was not adjusted correctly for displaying all items and so some were located "somewhere at the top" where the tab headers are. I fixed this now by simply reducing the number of categories, but is there any other way to deal with this issue? Maybe display some kind of scrollbar when the height exceeds a certain threshold? Sorry, if that's a stupid suggestion, but I'm no client developer, so I don't know if that's possible or not at all. :-)

Are you talking about the gray background? It's 2000 pixels height, if your list is long you will see a gap between top images and list items.

You can open this image in photoshop, make it longer, then upload to the server back.

Thanks for your reply!
Yes, that's the one I'm talking about. Surely this is a quick-win solution and one I will certainly apply. However, in the long run, I guess I wouldn't be the only one experiencing this issue. Wouldn't a code change, if possible, be a "better" long-term solution? Again, I have no idea if such a code change is feasable though. :oops:

Adding to the Mystique thread: for those looking to add a banner ad, such as from Google Adsense, sam2kb was kind enough to help me apply an ad to the top of the skin.

I had been using my standard Google Adsense code as Free HTML in the Page Top Widget container, which dropped the banner ad under my logo/page title. I wanted to put the ad at the top of the page, instead. So sam2kb suggested the following addition to index.main.php:

Code

<div class="page-content header-wrapper">
<div>GOOGLE AD</div>
<div id="header" class="bubbleTrigger">

I inserted my Google Adsense code where it says GOOGLE AD. I also had to add a center command to put the banner ad in the middle of the screen.

Thanks again, sam!

I just installed this and applied it to my blog, but I am having a couple of problems, or things that don't seem to work. I am sure the error is my fault, I probably changes some setting a long time ago, and as a result it is messing it up.

First, the image for the RSS feed and the Twitter, the one where you hover over it and it will slide up, well those do not slide up for me. (I just doulbe checked this, it seems to be browser specific, it works in FireFox, but not chrome)

Second, when you click the RSS feed it shows the contents of the mystique skin folder

Third, the side tab widget thing, the one that has a tab button for categories, tags, archives, etc, well the tab images show up, but no content. If you click any of the tabs it will also show the directory of the skin folder. I haven't figured out a way to customize this through b2evolution. (this does seem to display in FireFox, but not Chrome)

Fourth, the top link at the bottum of the page does not work (works in FireFox, but not Chrome.

The link to my blog is http://www.rhinomangraphics.com/lightscribe

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Ok thank you, I had forgotten about plug in, it stopped working long ago after I upgraded b2evolution. (I uninstalled it and installed the new version, currently it is not hooked up to my theme so it won't be visible if you check for that)

So that seemed to fix the tab area not working.

But I still have some problems.
- The RSS Feeds buttons (both the one at the top, and the bottom of the page) link directly to the skin folder, showing the contents. (Do I need to setup the RSS on my own or should this work automatically?)
- The 'Top' link at the bottom of the page does not work for Chrome

Once again I appreciate your help.

Ok, I've fixed it now. I reinserted both title and tag into the skin settings and it seems to work. Maybe the reloading containers solved it.

I wondered about 2 other things:

1. I have a slider on the main website (diapo). Would this be fairly easy to implement in this skin? Would I just add the code to the main php file in the skin folder? What about the jquery?
2. Have you thought about a social button for googleplus, or would it be easy to make one based on the others?

This works for me with other skins but not Mystique. It seems as if there is some kind of conflict with the tabbed widget. Could that be true?

The slider loads but the transitions stall and do not complete. At the same time using the tabbed widget becomes difficult (slow).

there's a good chance your api limit is exhausetd.. Your twitter widget may be using anonymous api hits to get your info from twitter..

Are you using a shared hosting ? Because the anonymous api limit is 150 hits per hour, which is per IP not domain.

Thanks tilqicom, ok that might be it. It just seems that sometimes the link to my account and icon above in the twitter widget disappears. It has been fine since last post though...

I have another issue to deal with. The widget automatically posts to twitter. On the widget itself on the blog the twitter short url is given t.co.... and on twitter the long is given plus #b2p. Not sure what this last piece is. I know it's in the blog settings ($title$ $url$ #b2p). I was thinking of using bitly to shorten my urls. What do people think about that? Could I incorporate this into the mystique twitter widget? If not, what's the easiest way to keep the widget but stop it from automatically posting to twitter? Thanks a lot

It's b2evo twitter plugin that posts back to your twitter account, not the widget. Just disable the plugin.
Twitter uses its own URL shortener, b2evolution has it's own shortener built-in. Check Tools > Slugs tab or go to Posts/Comments > All, note the short URL next to [permalink] button

It's b2evo twitter plugin that posts back to your twitter account, not the widget. Just disable the plugin.
Twitter uses its own URL shortener, b2evolution has it's own shortener built-in. Check Tools > Slugs tab or go to Posts/Comments > All, note the short URL next to [permalink] button

Why dont we put fields for consumer key & secret so that every blog owner can create their own twitter application and have their own 350 per hour limit ?

Sam2kb,

I just recently installed mystique for b2evolution. The site link is shown below.

I have a big issue on it. After I created a post, the sidebar went all the way down to the bottom?

Did I do wrong?

Thank you for the warmth welcome.

The only part I changed are the ones in the sidebar which includes the ad, facebook plugin, twitter, and the footer credits and links.

Other than that. No.

I just figured it,

I attemed to change _item_block.inc.php for the facebook plugin. I fixed it by removing the code.

Sorry for the bugging you up on this. My bad.

By the way, for the footer Theme Credit, Am I placing the correct backlink?

The link is ok. Feel free to remove any credits and links, it's GPL after all.

Hi Sam,

I was wondering whether I can make the 'popular posts' tab of the widget the default to display so that people see that first when they visit the homepage. Is that easy to change?

Thanks a lot

Quick question...if anyone can easily answer I'd appreciate it, or just tell me if you know it's answered in this thread and I'll search tomorrow with more awake eyes...

I just upgraded to 4.x and installed this theme, but only one category is appearing for each post, though I know I have multiple categories on every post. I checked the Settings and have multiple categories allowed. It seems I have to be missing something but can't find it?

I believe it only shows main category in post list mode. However you can see all cats in single post mode.

Of course, you can change that if you want to.

You can use the Menu container on the Widgets tab in backoffice. Just add a new Free HTML widget with the button code.

Something like this should work

Code

<li><a href="http://whatever.com">About us</a></li>

hi I've got 2 problems that I would like to solve.
1. I have added the Addthis toolbar after each post. It seems like overkill to have the native one, can I remove it? Relatedly, the toolbar shows on the homepage after each post listing! Which I think is weird and anyway the link from the toolbar in this case would be from the homepage, not the post that it is attached to. Must be a bug? How can I force things so that the toolbar is not shown on the homepage?
2. Is there a way I can get a widget container just above the sidebar tabs widget? I want to put a follow me/like me button there, below the sidebar tabs widget is just too far down.

Thanks as always for your great help in advance

to remove the "native one"; open your /_item_block.inc.php and find the part that says <table class="post-meta">...
remove the td :

PHP

<td><?php $Skin->shareThis() ?></td>

to display only after single posts, and not on homepage:

PHP

<?php if( $disp == 'single' ) {
 // html mode ?>
<script>YourAddthisScript</script>
<?php //exit ?>

wrap your addthis code with a disp single conditional like above.

Finally to add a widget container above your sidebar tabs, open your index.main.php, find the line that says $Skin->display_tabbed_widget();
and insert your container just above it, like so:

PHP

<!-- /search form -->
              <?php
               skin_containerNT_('Sidebar Above Tab'), array(
                        // This will enclose each widget in a block:
                        'block_start' => '<div class="$wi_class$">',
                        'block_end' => '</div>',
                        // This will enclose the title of each widget:
                        'block_title_start' => '<h3 class="title"><span>',
                        'block_title_end' => '</span></h3><div class="block-div"></div><div class="block-div-arrow"></div>',
                        // If a widget displays a list, this will enclose that list:
                        'list_start' => '<ul>',
                        'list_end' => '</ul>',
                        // This will enclose each item in a list:
                        'item_start' => '<li>',
                        'item_end' => '</li>',
                        // This will enclose sub-lists in a list:
                        'group_start' => '<ul>',
                        'group_end' => '</ul>',
                        // This will enclose (foot)notes:
                        'notes_start' => '<div class="notes">',
                        'notes_end' => '</div>',
                    ) );
                // Display javascript tabbed widget
                $Skin->display_tabbed_widget();

You will see "Sidebar Above Tab" container in widgets screen, if you dont, reload your containers.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to help tilqicom, that's great. I will try tonight. One thing about the conditional, the addthis code is just added in a free html widget in 'post bottom'. Is that still going to work? Thanks.

edit: so I tried a few variations on the conditional code and the 'post bottom' html (i.e. the addthis toolbar) is still on the homepage. Maybe if I add a conditional to the post bottom widget (or is that container?) Not sure where that is. Still wonder why that would be displayed on the homepage by default.

Yea the name "post bottom" kinda makes you think it will appear on the bottom of single posts.But yea i checked it's for every post bottom.
So if you wont need such functionality, just wrap the current container with the conditional.
_item_block.inc.php 180-183

PHP

if( $disp == 'single' ) {
// "Post bottom" CONTAINER EMBEDDED HERE
skin_containerNT_('Post bottom'), array(
        'block_start'    =>    '<div class="PostBottom">',
        'block_end'        =>    '</div>',
    ) );
}

Hello! First of all, I love love love this skin, and the sheer amount of stuff I get to customize. I'm currently in the process of making my website "complete," but there's just one thing I'm finding impossible. I've removed a few features (like the Share This widget in each post, since I have my own buttons), and have moved the background images around and about, and have further plans to make it a different color entirely (Pink), but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to add another "jumping" button to the menu (you know, facebook, flikr, myspace, linkedin, etc). I have a Tumblr button all ready to go and tilted 45 degrees and everything. I just can't figure out where they're stored on the site so I can copy the code and add an image. I found a PSD file with all the buttons, but that can't be it, can it be?

Thanks for the help and support, and for the great skin!

Okay, so, yes, I figured out my tumblr butto problem, but now I have a new one. The little verticle bar (pipe, what have you), that separates the blog name from the tagline... where is that? I can't seem to find any mention of it in the index, skin class, or style classes. I think I might change the wayt the blog name/headline might appear, and that verticle line seems to throw things. Do you know where I can find the code for that?

Heyo! I've got another question for you.

I really like the "Tabbed content" widget on the right of the page. I moved it around so that "top" posts are displayed first, then archives, categories, etc. That's no problem.

What is a problem is that when the "top posts" is highlighted (the star, which I've changed to be the default), the name of the posts are cut off. I have a lot of posts with long names, and they're not displayed in full. Example, my new post "How to Miss the Point of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" just says, "How to Miss the Point of the Hitchh..."

Do you know of any way to change it so that the posts display longer names before being interrupted by ellipses?

_skins.class.php Line ~ 483

Change "36" to how many characters you like

PHP

'"><span class="entry">'.strmaxlen($pItem->title36).

Hello! :)

I love this skin and I use it on a blog (meuquintal.com). :)

Currently installed a new blog with version "5.0.5-stable released on 02/Aug/2013" and again I use the skin Mystique (www.aguasdelindoiaturismo dot com dot br - WTF?).

Need to manually translate the text of the button "MORE" Tag as appears in English, FULL STORY.
Where can I find this text?

The same happens with "Sending a Message" in the contact page.

I appreciate if you can assist me. Because it's been a long time since I changed the other blog and I don't know where were these texts.

Thank You!
