Change Color Scheme

Silverbullet comes in 4 unique color variations.
You can change the scheme by simply opening pligg.tpl and finding s_blue.css
and replacing it with one of the following s_orange.csss_purple.css s_green.css

Add Your Logo

You can add your logo here /templates/silverbullet/images/logo.jpg
That will replace the default logo with the one you upload. The header was set up too contain almost any size logo without having to modify template files.

How do I install a Pligg Template?
Installation is a simple 3 step process:

  1. Download and extract the template file from the internet
  2. Upload the extracted folder to your /templates directory where Pligg is installed
  3. Navigate to your Pligg Admin Panel and click on the Configure link. Then under template you will need to change the name to the folder you uploaded into /templates.

Of course, you don’t have to donate, but if you do so, it will encourage me to release more free templates.

  9. Hi,
    I had that theme uploaded, than deleted, than uploaded again. Whatever, I downloaded the theme from here again and now it works.
    I have to thank you a lot man. I was giving up with pligg but you gave me with this theme a reason to use it.
    Want to donate a beer to you, but get this error:
    We were unable to decrypt the certificate id. :'(

    Regards and thank you again.

    10/23/08, 8:45 am
  21. But how can I change the color of the words on the topbar?

    10/25/08, 11:59 am
  22. qkinweb

    di, You will have to make some changes to the css for that. Just open the css file that you are using and look for
    .topbar a {


    .topbar a:visited {

    and change the colors from #888888 to whatever you want.

    10/25/08, 2:54 pm
  23. It wasnt a question , it was the answer for lipsmega .Thanks anyway your template is great. Ill donate for your great work. All of modules works great and is very fast the only problem i get is that i cant activate image module.

    10/26/08, 5:08 pm
  24. Di, I have installed the image module on this template a few times, if you need more help just send me an e-mail.

  25. Hi, I like so much your template but i want to ask you a simple question.

    How to put the header buttons (popular,upcoming,submit…) near than the tittle Silverbullet??

    because i want to turn the submit button more visible.Thank you so much

    11/03/08, 5:43 pm
  26. hi, hey you dont need to answer the question last question! now i now how to change the place of the header buttons.

    anyway, I’d like to suggest: I’d like so much your template, but there’s no user’s photo at the main pages, no icons… just text.
    in the next versions of silverbullet, make silverbullet more atractive putting icons beside “add this link to, send to a friend, bury…”
    ok? thanks

    Does anyone have any input as to where to place the Google Analytics code within this template? I tried to place it in pligg.tpl but it resulted in an error message.

    Hi, your theme is perfect! Absolutely great work!

    Is there an update for the latest release (1.0)? I tested it with 1.0 and the only problem I saw was the not working voting-button…

    Best regards

    Sorry for the inconvenience. I have decided not to release the updated version of silverbullet untill pligg 1.0 Rc2 is released. Rc2 is rumored to come out sometime next week.

    Hello qkinweb,

    i just downloaded your silverbullet template.

    Some things don’t work completly yet.
    I have Rc1 from Pligg so maybe you can already prepare before Rc2 comes out.

    1. Sidebar doesn’t load good getting error:
    Fatal error: TPL: [in line 0]: syntax error: file ‘silverbullet/sidebar_stories_wrapper_top_today.tpl’ does not exist in C:\wampserver\www\1-Ontwikkeling\Pligg 1.0.0 RC1b\class.template.php on line 923

    2. Button Published News is not dark blue when it’s active

    3. Subcategoies don’t show up as indented but in same line a the main categories

    Just to let you know 🙂

    02/16/09, 4:50 pm
  36. qkinweb

    Thank you for the information. I am not surprised with the issues you are having. Don’t worry everything will be fixed when I release the 1.0 version which should be this weekend if they release rc2 on schedule.

    I love this template so much. I am regularly visiting this site to see if you update and publish new vesrion of silverbullet.

    I am sure , as u said earlier you will be working on this..but to be honest, we can’t wait to get it as soon as possible.

    Your efforts are much appreciated. If possible can you please include comments feature in sidebar.

    Thanks Qkin

  50. OH

    Wondering if you could help me with this problem with the side bar?

    Warning: include(sidebar_stories_u.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /Users/nothingagain/Sites/Pligg/cache/templates_c/c_2fe7921f1383d2c6f8fd8c36a52f93ff.php on line 4

    I tried chmod 777 for the file, but it didn’t help.


    06/13/09, 8:26 pm
  51. The sidebar issue is related to the fact that the template hasn’t been updated for a while.

    The new version will be available soon, I promise.
