with some struggle we updated the theme, as suddenly forum posts seemed oddly indented.
But after upgrading from v5.0 to v5.0.1 with the Envato toolkit,
And now the whole site is messed up 🙁 .. seems a lot of the customizations got lost
– the backgroud is missing
– the blue frame is msising
– colors have changed
– font sizes changed
– members avatars suddenly in round and further apart instead of square

can you help?August 12, 2015 at 6:35 pm #66982This reply has been marked as private.August 12, 2015 at 8:06 pm #66987
we found what happened … the update changed the default skin from what we had (“Custom Plus”) to “Clean Green”, and thats why everything looked so different.
we changed it back and named it Scaffies and made it also the default skin.
However, the forum posts are still indented for some reason.August 12, 2015 at 8:41 pm #66988
we also found the avatars are now always the same size (small, 48×48 px).
They used to be small in listings, but 150×150 px in Forum postsAugust 12, 2015 at 9:02 pm #66989
hmmm.. I guess that is new that the sizes changed.
The profiles now have really big pictures (300×300) which looks good.
I guess its mostly the indented posts in the forums thats an issue.August 13, 2015 at 9:09 am #66998
Thanks for the review 🙂
The issue is now fixed with the indentation as far as I can see. But you have a plugin causing an error in the background. It’s coming from a plugin, but unfortunately I can’t tell which one. You’d have to disable them one-by-one to see which is causing it.August 13, 2015 at 12:44 pm #67019
thanks for the response!
The indentation of the posts is still there – all posts are like that:
here is an example which is SFW:
Same as Screenshot:
The avatar, member name and votes were (and are meant to be) on the left, not 2-3 inches shifted to the right.
Or is this what you mean be another (unknown) plug-in causing an error, making the avatars shift to the right?August 13, 2015 at 1:18 pm #67020
BTW, we also noticed that the origin IP number for each post is no longer shown under the avatar – could that have anything to do with it?August 13, 2015 at 1:25 pm #67021
We did de-activate every single plug-in that was touched rcently, cleared all (local) caches (the W3 cache on the site is now gone, too), but each did not make any difference.
The only one we could not turn back is WordPress 4.2.4, which updated itself automatically.August 14, 2015 at 10:10 am #67038
we found the culprit (plug-in) – in a way. Even though we have not touched it, the indenting goes away when we de-activate the plug-in (Rating Widget). We contacted the author, who has previously helped us with another issue.
However, even with the plugin de-activated, the icons are still displayed small, meaning the username gets broken into 2 lines. see here on these screenshots from http://scaffies.nl/forums/topic/blue-balls-shots/#post-22727
Is the avatar size something that can be adjusted?
And out of curiosity: how come the avatars are now round? did this come from wordpress or from your theme update?
Thanks!!August 14, 2015 at 11:29 am #67047
Ok, take a look at the indentation now.
I’ve made the avatars square for you too and re-enabled the IP addresses.August 14, 2015 at 11:57 am #67053
Thank you! Square avatars are better and thanks for bringing the IP back for the admins!
The indentation isn’t resolved yet – some do appear on the left (awesome!) other do not.
such as here, a post with many entries:
some are left, others still indented. I cleared local cache, and even started the page in a broswer never been used for Scaffies, and its the same look.
Maybe there is something else that can be done?August 14, 2015 at 12:06 pm #67055
I hope I am not pushing things .. but since the theme update, the spacing of the avatars changed, too. On the homepage, in the “Last Active Members” widget, we used to get 4 in a row, now only three (with spaces in between). We had to reduce th enumber of members shown in it as a result.
Is there an adjustment possible to bring it back like that?
Thank you so much for your help!!August 14, 2015 at 12:07 pm #67056
P.S.: the avatars also had rounded corners in the square mode – could you set it back to that as well?
in all displays they are now sharp edges.August 14, 2015 at 12:14 pm #67057
and there are few other things, which changed with the theme update, and which we could not adjust anywhere (we find them as we go):
when we click on the “send a private message” the “send” button is no longer visible – it used to be white letters on a blue background, and now its white on white – it is still there and works but you cnanot see it.
Statistics Contrast (this may be related to the Button Contracts):
The Forum Statistics (on the lower right of the home page) are not readable anymore (thats why we took them off initially) – the numbers used to be white on blue – now they are black on blue, i.e. hard to read.
It would be awesome if you could fix that or tell s how / where to adjust the settings – we didn’t make any adjustments after the theme update.
