☁️ Discourse Air Theme

I want to use this with the air theme because I like the boxes and category setup

So you want no grey area cutting into the background image?

If so, you would use the same code above, but unset the clip-path property.

html .background-container {
    position: fixed;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    height: 100vh;
    width: 100vw;
    background: url(https://d11a6trkgmumsb.cloudfront.net/original/3X/8/3/8352b68….jpeg);
    background-size: cover;
    clip-path: unset;

This actually looks really nice with your image!

Thank you so much @jordan-vidrine so I have implemented the changes and this may not be on the theme necessarily but my versatile banner, but the background is duplicated across my versatile banner as well and this is the only change I made on discourse air

    left: 0;
    height: 100vh;
    width: 100vw;
    background: #003366; 
    clip-path: ellipse(148% 70% at 91% -14%);
    background: url(https://i.ibb.co/GCcS8Zw/Abstract-futuristic-Molecules-technology-with-polygonal-shapes-on-dark-blue-background-Illustration.jpg); 
    clip-path: unset;
  }
}

This is how my page looks now: is this something I need to change in versatile banner or something on the air theme?

I do not have a background image or color set for versatile banner.

Any suggestions?

You can try background-size: cover; or play around with variations on that.

Ahh gotcha, will do. It is the sizing when I zoom out the image just repeats:

You think I should remove the height and width padding too?

I’ll play around with the background-size: thank you!

Thank you !

Hello, how do I install this theme, what is the name of the theme?

At the very bottom of the first post of this topic is a table showing this information. This was probably not easily seen as there are a good bit of steps to set this theme up correctly. Please read through the first post, as well as the links for installing a theme and let us know if you encounter any issues :+1:

Hmm :thinking: , it’s hard to tell from your screenshot what page you are on, or what specific font you are referring to. In the image you have shared there are 4 or more different text items that could possible be customized.

You seem to be interested in customizing a good bit of Discourse for yourself, which is awesome :raised_hands:

Jordan, i see your above and last messages is all mention to read more, i understand that and i respect it, but please note i’m not designer and i spend almost a week customize the theme with my basic knowledge… and i’m not a rich to spend $500 customize on my “not profit community”.

so consider assist us in this will be apprecaite it not for me, for other user community who will definitely like your theme with them basic knowledge in customization.

The best thing about Discourse is while there is of course a learning curve (as with anything technical these days), you are highly capable of being able to customize the things you wish to customize. I promise!

We write these topics to help our community to learn how to do things on their own, and sometimes when things get a little too difficult, we are always here to help.

That being said, the help you are asking for can definitely be attained by reading through the topics I linked earlier!
