Fakebook, a theme for social media lovers

@awesomerobot once again thanks so much for this great theme.

One bug that I have - if I want display sub categories at the top of a category page, then the list below of the topics becomes extremely narrow. Not sure why.

Is there a workaround?

@awesomerobot I am having a slight issue with the theme. Selected tab’s text is unreadable in the invitation panel when using Fakebook

I have also made a pull request for this

Google be wanting to make the users love Google+, and then later throw it off a cliff.
But on-topic, this is an amazing idea, the UI of Google+ is pretty good.

I noticed this issue too. The formatting breaks when the category subcategories are turned on. I’ve been able to correct some of the formatting issue so it displays sensibly by using the following SCSS in a custom theme component:

body.categories-list.category {
    .category-heading {
        p {
            font-size: var(--font-up-1);
        }
    }

    table.topic-list tr.topic-list-item > div.main-link {
        display: table-cell;
        width: 100%;
        
        .link-middle-line > .topic-image {
            margin: 10px 0;
            > img {
                width: 100%;
            }
        }
    }
}

Still a bit of work to go to make it behave as normal, though. I think it is a bug in the theme. I will take a look when I get a chance and see if I can identify the issue and fix it. I’d like to display subcategories, and it’s not possible in the current code version.

@awesomerobot let me know how I can help =) If you have any pointers or ideas, I’m all ears.

空间布局不合理,分类选择居然占了三分之一的宽度!或许重新调整下界面中各个组件的比例会更好。
另外,能否单独将topic样式单独做成一个组件?我喜欢这样直接显示部分内容和图片的展示方式。

The space layout is unreasonable, and the classification selection actually accounts for one-third of the width! Perhaps it would be better to re-adjust the proportions of the various components in the interface.
In addition, can the topic style be made into a component separately? I like this way of displaying part of the content and pictures directly.

Hello,

It’s really a very nice customization :heart: :heart: :heart:. Is it possiable to have your “Fakebook Modern Plus” theme?

I am actually interested in knowing the same thing. I’ve been thinking about it for a while. I’m glad I came across your post.

If there is a way to replicate (at least) most of the looks and functionality of Google+ VIA themes and plugins, I would be all for it!

Here are some images I could find online. The entirety of Google+ was not archived well in its final days.

Could you have more option to be the same as facebook?

  1. Hide title
  2. Image first
  3. Multi image layout
  4. Icon font

Hey guys, would it be possible to tell the theme to only customize the feed section and leave the inbox alone? It’s not a very clean UI for messaging lol.

I would like to know how to customize this Fakebook theme, because I have implemented this theme in my application, I need to changes some css styles but I couldn’t find any editor to override the existing css. Please let me know how to achieve that.

Just use Topic List Previews (tiles) or Topic List Thumbnails with Layouts Plugin and a right and left sidebar.

Thanks. I am currently use Topic List Preview. Working perfectly!

I just tested Layout Plugin, a little more complicated.

I hope sidebar will be officially in Discourse. :slightly_smiling_face:

Feel free to ask for support on the Layouts Topic. It’s pretty straightforward. Just add widgets by installing them as theme components and then select them in the plugin settings.
