Hi guys, I'm new to this whole vBulletin scene. Purchased vBulletin and still workin on my own board right now hehe...Anyway, on the vbulletin.org main forum page, you see categories such as "Code Hacks", but it has a metallic color to it. How do you do that? I'd like to do this to my site if possible. Thanks! :)
I asked the very same question on vb.com. :)
Goto your styles page, where you enter your colors, edit header etc. In the catagory strip color box, where its #93939 hex for the color, add something like this:
Thats how I have it on my test forum (working out the gradients some more then I'll put it on my real forum).
I simply made like a 25pixel high, 1 pixel wide image in Photoshop, and chose a gradient. Save it as .gif, upload it, and enter the code and it should work. :)

Well I did try that, and it just gave me a red strip instead of a gradient filled grayish color which is what I wanted....hmm..any ideas? Thanks again! :)
Is the background you're using a gradiant image?
I just did it on mine and looks cool :D

Yep! I got it to work...It does look cool and all, but how come it changes the link colors and distorts some things? Weird..but cool nonetheless! :) Btw, how do you get it to where the gradient color doesn't divide right in half down the center? I mean, when I did it and it worked, it looked like the bar was seperated and the top half was one color adn the bottom half was another color hehe...Anyways, thanks! :)

Same problem here.
I think its because the cat style isn't being applied to the table? Make sure you didt remove it.
