Multiflex3 is a fixed width, neutral green and grey business style layout originally created by Gerhard Wolfgang.

Screenshot Here

There are a lot of options that you can browse in the "multiflex3/multiflex32_original" folder that take advantage of different block colors and other effects. I included all of the original CSS so you should be able to plug-n-play new class properties in the .thtml files if you so desire. Also, I included a collection of country flags for use in the top header. They are public domain and can be found in "multiflex3/flag_icons.zip" To use them, simply unzip the ones you want and upload them to "multiflex3/images" folder. Finally, this theme supports the Forum plugin v2.7, with its layout options in "multiflex3/functions.php" with some navbar layout enhancements that didn't make it into Blaine's final 2.7 release, but which will be incorporated in future updates.

I feel the theme is at a point where it is time for some feedback. Please check it out at my test site: lab.familycorner.us and post any glaring issues you come across in this forum thread. Once it passes beta, I'll release it to the public.

Thx!

I've updated the theme a bit. Please give it a whirl over on my test site. If there aren't any glaring bugs, I'll package it up and get it out the door sometime this coming week.

Thx!

Great work on this theme.
Seems like the thing I'm looking for.
But....
Would it be difficult to get rid of the fixed width?
Because so far I've been using and loving the 'Smooth blue theme', but it hasn't gor the expanding menu buttuns that this theme has...

Or could I export these expanding buttons into the Smooth blue theme....

Hope I still make sense and hop e you could help me,

Kind regards,

Erik Crins

It would require some significant re-working, yes. Basically you would need to change all the instances of width:900px to something like width:99% in style.css. Beyond that, you would have to change the header graphics (since the header and footer sections currently have 1 big image per section). You would probably want to redo the images into tables, so you can get a fluid width.

Sure, that might be the better way to go. The code you are looking for resides in Multiflex's header.thtml and style.css files. In header.thtml copy:

PHP Formatted Code

      <!-- A.3 HEADER BOTTOM -->
      <div class="header-bottom">
     
        <!-- Navigation Level 2 (Drop-down menus) -->
        <div class="nav2">
       
          <!-- Navigation item -->
          <ul>
            <li><a href="{site_url}/">Home</a></li>
          </ul>
         
          <!-- Navigation item -->
          <ul>
            <li><a href="#">Static Menu 1<!--[if IE 7]><!--></a><!--<![endif]-->
              <!--[if lte IE 6]><table><tr><td><![endif]-->
                <ul>
                  <li><a href="#">Link 1</a></li>
                  <li><a href="#">Link 2</a></li>
                </ul>
              <!--[if lte IE 6]></td></tr></table></a><![endif]-->
            </li>
          </ul>          

          <!-- Navigation item -->
          <ul>
            <li><a href="#">Static Menu 2<!--[if IE 7]><!--></a><!--<![endif]-->
              <!--[if lte IE 6]><table><tr><td><![endif]-->
                <ul>
                  <li><a href="#">Link 1</a></li>
                  <li><a href="#">Link 2</a></li>
                  <li><a href="#">Link 3</a></li>
                </ul>
              <!--[if lte IE 6]></td></tr></table></a><![endif]-->
            </li>
          </ul>    
         
        </div>
      </div>
 


Then in style.css you'll need to grab all the class="whatever" selectors as mentioned above, in addition to the menu css (everything that starts with .nav2).

Hope this helps!

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the quick response!
Both options sound doable.
I'd probably want to redo the top graphic anyway into something to do with the aeroomodelling club I'm making the site for and sticking that into tables shouldn't be to big a hurdle.
And thank you for the code on the menu buttons too.

Now to find some time to re install the site and theme.

Ciao,

Erik
