Majestic v4

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    This theme is no longer for sale after M4. This will be the last version. I'll continue to update this and all previous versions but this is final. Thank you all for your support.

    M4 is complete (for the most part) and available for sale with branding removed.

    I hope it inspires you all.

    One thing I have to do, and it will be a massive overhaul would be the main topic template. I'm definitely not proud of it. Wireframe it and just see what works. I'm up late but I changed the sidebar a little bit. In this theme I've envisioned it to be the central hub for almost everything cramming yet keeping it minimal at the same time.

    The profile drop down menu (not shown) has been moved into the sidebar as well using the template conditions. @psychobunny has made one hell of a template system. Kudos. Lets make it even better.

    Here are some questions asked by the community. I'll take the time to answer them now.

    Q: How is M4 built?
    A: M4 was built atop of M3 with many modifications to the templates. These modifications only include a 1% of code change (for the timestamps, chat, and modal(bootbox))). Because of the plugins and powerful template system, building themes such as this one are a breeze to make.

    Q: How long did it take to do M4?
    A: Roughly 12 days working 16 hours per day. There's a total of 592 iterations + 183 more, so 775 and then some. Today I made 23 more iterations but this is all done behind the scenes of course.

    Q: Why so many iterations?
    A: Because 55% of the time things are done "on the fly" so I think of a great idea and just implement it. Only about 10% of the ideas stay however.

    Q: What keeps you motivated?
    A: Well honestly, the developers and their passion infused with my love for this platform as well as the community of course with all of your lovely feedback and wonderful upvotes.

    Q: How do I purchase Majestic?
    A: You can send me a message here, or click here to purchase with PayPal.

    Q: Why don't you have a download/purchase link?
    A: Sorry about that. You can always send me a message for more details. There's no "purchase" links as to which you can simply download these themes, yet. Because of the iterations per day/week via Github, I wouldn't be able to guarantee a seamless update as of right now unless you can do it yourself. That wouldn't necessarily break the theme, but more than likely unexpected things may happen.

    Updated OP with more information and purchase link.

  • Hello @trevor loving your work. Is this an upgrade to majestic? Would this be included in our purchase?

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @Giorgio-Chiodi Absolutely.

  • @trevor Finally got to try M4 out on mobile on your convoe site.

    Few glitches on my Samsung Note 3 using chrome.

    Hitting reply works ok but when the keyboard pops out the composer is entirely obscured. Kind of inoperable. Also has this rather confusing "Replying to What s.." in the middle which throws me off completely.

    I like where you're going with the upvote buttons on mobile, the rest of them also need appropriate resizing i.e. quote/reply/share.

    Do the standard widgets operate well with M4 or are the widget areas preset to what we see?

    Screenshot attached:

    Keep up the good work sir. Just constructive feedback for you.

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    Thanks @nik I really appreciate the feedback.

    The replying to whats... This looks like the font should be resized appropriately for mobile. Kinda been neglecting the composer but now that we have mobile and desktop capabilities per template thats will make design easier.

    Definitely will resize the quote/reply/share buttons.

    Yes it uses the widgets, but they don't use the widget properties as they are imported on the site - so no I don't use the standard widget panel for none of it. I can easily implement this in there but haven't taken the time to do so yet.

  • @trevor any time. Let me know when you've patched it up so I can give it another once over.

  • I've just dropped you a PayPal, great work on the theme, itching to try it out.

    Check your email please, thank you.

  • Will it be possible to load all the posts categories etc on the same bg as the home page's (which currently loads on a white bg)?

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @TopicLess Yes, that shouldn't be a problem.

  • I absolutely love the theme (especially the landing page looks delicious). Is the resemblance to Medium intended?

    Nonetheless, it is inspiring what is possible with nodeBB. Can't wait to get started with my own themes.
