Hi, the porting of this theme to drupal 5.x is possible ? I don't ask you to port it, only if it possible (license, function hard coded, etc etc). If yes I want to try to port it (for myself study and after release to pubblic). Tnx.

Absolutely you could do this. The theme is GPL and you can make whatever modifications you'd like.

However I warn you that a lot of the features are more advanced than most themes and it contains theme settings, which became part of core for Drupal 6. If you're interested in porting to D5, you'd probably want to have it dependent on the D5 Theme Settings API module: http://drupal.org/project/themesettingsapi

template.php would need quite an overhaul because of the preprocess functions new in Drupal 6. Basically it's a matter of doing all this stuff backwards :) http://drupal.org/node/132442

Good luck! I'm sure it would be very educational and welcome by the community.

Jeremy (http://drupal.org/user/72964) has ported this (at least the look and feel of it) to Drupal 5. We won't be putting it up here in CVS because it will be unsupported, but will put it up for download shortly and link it here.

Cool, thanks for posting it sumitk. I spent roughly two hours on the port so I hope it works well enough for everyone. If there are any major issues with it please shoot me an email and I'll try and get them fixed, but from what little testing I did it seemed solid.

Jay did an outstanding job coding it in the first place, I just removed some Drupal 6 template code and "downgraded" it to Drupal 5 :)

wouldnt it be better to create a new project page for this port?

easier to distribute now and future versions (if any) i think.

I'll do my best to include the lastest CSS updates with each release in this issue. So I'll be adding a .zip file of the theme's latest files as I update.

eternalistic, thanks for keeping us up to date. I've currently have this problem http://drupal.org/node/316637, the error with the css block headers. Anyways, I'm trying to figure out what the fix was.

Anyways, this theme is awesome, and I appreciate your time converting it to drupal 5.

Hi Eternalistic,
This theme doesn't work well with panels 2. The panel pane positions are kinda messed up...Is there a fix to it?

By the way, good port!

This port is great. Thanks the contributors for this.

When I add sub menu on Primary menu item, I can not get them displaying in IE6. It works in FF3 and Gnome.

The screenshots as follows.

Any one help?

Thanks anyway.
