So you want to try out Geeklog, but don't want to install it just yet? Well, now you can, on our Geeklog Demo Site,

http://demo.geeklog.net/

On this site, you'll find

  • a default installl of Geeklog 1.3.9sr1
  • the Forum plugin 2.3
  • 78 themes

To get a look "behind the scenes", you can log in as the Admin user and create users, blocks, approve stories, etc. The site is reset every hour, so in case it's getting messed up, simply come back again later.

And before everyone asks, a word on the themes ...

The themes that are installed on demo.geeklog.net have been updated to 1.3.9 manually - and possibly not correctly or completely. So, we're not offering all the themes for download there but suggest you'll have a look in the usual places, i.e.

The theme changes are documented, so it shouldn't be too hard to update any old themes yourself.

My themes "White Pointer" and "APV_Aeon" seem to be messed up. It seems the right blocks, find themselves outside the main body... Though it looks cool, it is not meant to be displayed in this way. Can someone IM or email me on how to best help get my themes restored? Thank you very much!

See below - both themes were missing a file for the forum centerblock, so I had to copy one over from the standard forum theme, but that doesn't seem to quite fit.

Simple solution: Provide me with the proper missing file or updated themes. I think I've downloaded both from geeklog.net ...

bye, Dirk

Hey Dirk,

My latest theme on geeklog.net should be the latest on the demo. I've downloaded the theme here and it runs as intended on my copy of 1.3.9sr1 right out of the box.

Although the theme is quite buggy on the demo it sure does look beautiful. I'd like to leave it like that for someone to brave enough a template from it.

What I mean is that bug is now one of my feature request. I'd like someone to improve upon that bug and make that hack available. Only thing I believe needs to be addressed is how the forum center block appears.

Fix the centerblock so it appears correctly, fix any discrepancies and make the choice available in either interface or hardcode. I'd really like to theme something with that layout.

Please look it over. Thanx!

The APV Aeon and White Pointer themes come with their own forum theme files, but seem to be missing the centerblock_bottom.thtml file. I've copied one over from another theme now, but it doesn't look quite right ...

Forgot to copy the entire forum directory for the Wintermute theme - fixed.

If you find anything else, please post it here. I'll keep an eye on the server logs, too, as some of the themes seem to be missing a few images ...

bye, Dirk

I'd really like to get my hands on that foundation theme. If anyone has a copy of it I'd greatly appreciate it. I checked the links provided in this story, but no one seems to have it.

please email rav at dslextrme dot com if you happen to have it.

It's in the download area now. This is a straight copy of the files from the demo site - no guarantees ...
