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.

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.

How can I add image preview on the suggested topics?

Hello,

Create a new theme component or add this to an existing one.

Add to Common / CSS

This will display the topic image on suggested topics.

#suggested-topics {
  .topic-list .main-link {
    .link-middle-line {
      .topic-image,
      img {
        display: block;
      }
    }
  }
}

If you want to add the topic excerpt too then use this code snippet instead of the previous.

This will display the topic image and topic excerpt on suggested topics.

#suggested-topics {
  .topic-list .main-link {
    .link-middle-line {
      .topic-image,
      img {
        display: block;
      }
    }
    .topic-excerpt {
      display: block;
    }
  }
}
