Flamingo Theme
#1
Hello folks. If you have any questions or need any support I'm here to help.
I have also made a page to give instruction on the features of the theme (http://robkellas.com/blog/flamingo/).

Here are some of its features:
- The theme is responsive and has four states for various screen sizes.
- It uses HTML5 Boilerplate to help with correct markup for all browsers and devices
- Multiple pages for your theme, 2 column, 3 column, 404 page and blog index page
- FancyBox is integrated
- Google Analytics code is ready to roll (just add your UA code)
- Simple Twitter feed integration in the footer. Just change your username in a footer component
- Simple CSS charts with minimal code

You can see a working example of this theme on robkellas.com

Thanks n00dles101!
I'll probably work on making a version with top navigation for lengthier navigation at some point. Currently the setup is more for simple portfolio sites.

I wait for a more menu-points ;=)

Connie, I've updated the theme so that you can have longer nav items. What I've done is created two styles. Style1.css and style2.css. Locate the inc.start.php file and use which style you wish to use. Style2.css is the style for lengthier nav's.

Enjoy!

I can't get the background images to work, at first I thought it was because I installed the theme at /flamingo 2.0/ and the style.css was redirecting to /flamingo/ but that didn't seem to solve my problem.
The whole background is blank.

Downburst - Sorry about that. I've updated the theme. Re-download and the background images should pull in just fine now.

Make sure to download the latest version. 2.2 - it fixes some minor validation issues and fixes the references to the themes background images.

Thanks, I got it to work.

To other people still having this problem:
-rename the Flamingo2.2.1 folder to Flamingo2.2 before uploading Wink
-make sure the website url at the settings is not http://yourIP/yoursite/ but http://yoururl.com

Rob, I have a question about the FancyBox integration. I pasted the the example code from your site into a test page (using source) and changed the jpg's to ones of my own. When I save and then load the page, I see thumbs of all the photos and when I hover the cursor over the thumbs they are highlighted with a blue box. But when I click on the photo, I get the message: "The requested content cannot be loaded. Please try again later." I'm not sure what I'm overlooking?

FYI: I noticed on your Flaming example page the photos loaded as they should, but on your Portfolio page the do not.

Heyrobt,

Sorry about that. I have yet to finish my own site :/

What you are missing (without seeing an example) is a reference to the larger image in the "a href"

Currently my code example looks like this <a class="fbox" href="javascript:;"><img src="/data/uploads/blog/flamingo/jungle.jpg" /></a>

In order to get the image to load replace the "javascript:;" with a reference to your larger image, such as, http://yourdomain.com/images/thislargeimage.jpg\"

I hope this helps!

Thanks,
Rob

Thanks Rob, it worked like a charm. I knew it was something simple.
