TB Methys Theme only configuration

Greetings,

Thanks for lovely free theme. I have tried both the profile and theme only. The profile of course creates a perfect replicate of the demo site. However, I am having troubles getting the theme only edition to look proper. I referred to the Methys II guide since there is no Methys guide (but i used Methys size images for style presets). Here are my major problems ...

1. Homepage slideshow - the images are small squares even though the view field calls the proper image style preset. The navigation errors look like some default and do not match the style of the demo. I tried comparing the theme only site with the profile created site and I can't find out what the difference is as all settings appear to be the same. It is my guess that the propers styles are not being called and slideshow is using some views default. Any ideas? This definitely has something to do with css problem but i am not sure how to solve it!

2. Where are social icons above main menu? I see in the profile two blocks in header but am unable to replicate them in theme only. I created the block social and copied code from profile site and it does not work.

3. On inside pages sidebar first goes away in demo. but in theme only version all inside pages have the sidebar first. how do i get rid of it without creating a .tpl file?

4. The mass top area is squeezed and not looking right.

My guess is all of these problems are related to one thing. I would just use the install profile since it looks perfect, but i have an existing database and content types and can not change the entire structure of the site. Any idea how to solve this? I guess I am missing something somewhere but not sure what?

Thanks!

Hi friend,

It's really long question, I'd like to answer each below:

1. Homepage slideshow - the images are small squares even though the view field calls the proper image style preset. The navigation errors look like some default and do not match the style of the demo. I tried comparing the theme only site with the profile created site and I can't find out what the difference is as all settings appear to be the same. It is my guess that the propers styles are not being called and slideshow is using some views default. Any ideas? This definitely has something to do with css problem but i am not sure how to solve it!
=> As I understand you are not able to configure the slideshow to looks like our demo page. In the free version of TB Methys the slideshow uses only 1 big image. That means the 3 column image you see, is actually 1 only. To make the slideshow work correctly as for our demo page, you need to cut and crop the image to the same dimensions. This might cause your issue.

2. Where are social icons above main menu? I see in the profile two blocks in header but am unable to replicate them in theme only. I created the block social and copied code from profile site and it does not work.
=> it's only a custom html block, you can copy the html to create a similar block. Have you done this?

3. On inside pages sidebar first goes away in demo. but in theme only version all inside pages have the sidebar first. how do i get rid of it without creating a .tpl file?
=> In Drupal, when you want to make a region go to any page, you only need to hide all blocks in that region at that page.

4. The mass top area is squeezed and not looking right.
=> It's only a block view with grid format.

Please let me know if my above answers are clear to you.
Kindly,
HaiNN

I did a firebug element

I did a firebug element inspection on the arrows that rotate the slideshow... on my theme only version are simply element tags... i guess some default stuff. On the live demo they it is #slideshow-wrapper .views_slideshow_controls_text span. why is the theme not seeing the correct css?

Thanks. Everything else I

Thanks. Everything else I will figure out. But if you can give advice how to make the slideshow look the same as demo I would appreciate that. I see now only some small square boxes and ugly blue errors on the sides. How do I connect this view with Methys styles so I get large pictures and arrows replaced by those in theme folder? Cheers
