A modern, responsive theme for the Nova 2 roleplay management system.

Report a BugContributeWrite a Review

Overview

Andromeda is a modern, responsive theme for the Nova 2 roleplay management system. Andromeda offers customization options unlike any other Nova theme. Users can select between light and dark modes of the theme without having to change their preferences, and administrators can edit CSS files directly from Nova's control panel. Andromeda was created by Emily Wolf and released under the BSD 3-Clause License.

Table of Contents

Getting Started

Installation

  1. Begin by downloading andromeda.zip of the latest release (v1.0.0).
  2. Upload the /views/andromeda folder into your website's /application/views folder. Ensure the theme's directory name is andromeda. Any other folder name will break the skin.
  3. Upload the /controllers/admin.php file to /application/controllers. If you have a custom Admin controller, copy lines 16-40 into the admin.php file.
  4. Login to your Nova website as a System Administrator. Navigate to Control Panel > Site Management > Skin Catalogue and click Install next to the Andromeda banner on the top of the page.

Cookie Disclaimer

This website uses a cookie to track each user's dark or light mode preference. This theme does not track user any other user data.

Screenshots

Configuration

This theme offers several configuration options available in a built-in theme management panel. Once the theme is installed, any account with permission to access Nova's Skin Catalogue will have access to the following configuration options. The built-in panel is visible below the default admin sub-navigation menu (under Theme Manager > Settings or through http://YOUR_WEBSITE.com/index.php/admin/theme).

Alternatively, you can edit the configuration file located in /andromeda/global/config.php (link).

Dark Mode

The Andromeda theme uses cookies to track each user's preferred theme mode. The two options are "light" (default) and "dark" modes, which each user can change by clicking the icon on the bottom right corner of every page. The Theme Manager's Settings page allows administrators to set a default mode and control the visibility of the mode switcher.

Game License

The Andromeda theme allows Game Managers to define a license for all of the content made available through the game's website. The recommended license is the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International, which is pre-loaded into the theme. Game Managers are welcome to define a preferred license or no license at all.

Game Rating

The Andromeda theme allows Game Managers to define a rating for the content on the game's website. The theme uses the RPG Rating system to define content through an image in the site's footer. The theme accepts input for language, sex, and violence on a scale of 0-3. Game Managers also have the ability to turn off this feature.

Discord Widget

The Andromeda theme has an option to add a Discord widget to the sidebar of the Admin Control Panel. Your Discord server must have the Server Widget enabled (Server Settings > Widget > Enable Server Widget). To enable this widget, copy your Server ID from Discord and place it in the appropriate location in the Theme Manager's Settings page. Game Managers can also edit other attributes of the widget, such as the default theme, height, width, and CSS styles.

Customization

Header Image

To add a custom header image, replace the header.jpg image located in /andromeda/global/images.

Stylesheets

The Andromeda theme supports editing CSS files directly from Nova's control panel. The editor gives Game Managers access to four main CSS files used by this theme. Modifying or deleting any code may break this theme! Please test your changes before implementing any code.

You can find original copies of the Andromeda's stylesheets in the theme's the GitHub repository:

Font Awesome

This theme uses the free version of the Font Awesome 5 icon set. Several buttons throughout the theme use Font Awesome, but Game Managers are welcome to use the resource for other links (ex: social media buttons).

To use Font Awesome, please follow the following format:

<i class="fab fa-discord"></i>

This will display Font Awesome's Discord icon.

To learn more about Font Awesome, view their icon gallery or read their documentation.

Rows & Columns

This theme supports responsive rows and columns using a 12-column grid. You can use this grid through the following format:

<div class="row">
  <div class="col"></div>
  <div class="col"></div>
</div>

Example using custom sizes:

<div class="row">
  <div class="col s12 m6 l3"></div>
  <div class="col s12 m6 l9"></div>
</div>

This will create two columns that take up the full width of a small device and half width on a medium-sized device. On larger devices, the first column will take up 1/4 (3/12) of the screen while the second column will take up 3/4 (9/12) of the screen.

Support

If you need any help installing, configuring, or customizing this theme, please join Anodyne's Discord server and use the room #help. Otherwise, send me direct message on Discord (@Emily#6153) or email me.
