Questions and Answers

Q. So what do we have here?
A. Well that's simple! It's a dark blue style for vBulletin 4.1.4 Suite (or Forum Classic).

Q. Anything in particular that I need to know about this style?
A. Simple - I don't advertise a lot, there are no advertisements shown when I make styles however I do know due to the centering of the logo, if you currently utilize the header ad locations you'll need to make changes if utilizing this style otherwise it will not display properly. *Fix planned for the 4.1.5 version and I'll patch this 4.1.4 version then as well, basically I'll be moving the header ad locations just above the normal below navbar locations to remedy this .

Q. This is 4.1.4 style why did you not release a 4.1.5 version and will you release and keep this updated unlike other styles on here?
A. Yes, unlike some other styles in the past I've released this is branded by our company and we do plan on supporting this style indefinitely.

Q. I see two different downloads available, which one do I use?
A. Simple:

- For vBulletin 4.1.4 through 4.1.7 use the file titled - Innovation_by_Instinct-Avenger_Blue-Compressed.zip
- For vBulletin 4.1.8 use the file titled - Innovation_by_Instinct-Avenger_Blue-vB4.1.8-Compressed.zip
- For vBulletin 4.2.1 and 4.2.2 use the file titled - Innovation_by_Instinct-Avenger_Blue-vB4.2.1-4.2.2-Compressed.zip

Q. I'm using a version for vBulletin 4.1.8 or up, why is the logo not clickable?
A. Well we have navtabs w/ a Home, Forum, and Blog button so why do we need more and more of the same links? Well I know some prefer it so here is a way to make it clickable:

You can utilize the transparent 1x1px transparent image to make the logo clickable again. *Please note this is not a default feature, to make the logo clickable you must edit template header and find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Remove the <comment> codes as shown in red:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This is how the code should now look:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

*If you use a different logo than the stock "Avenger Blue" and your making it clickable via the method above, please change the width="#" and height="#" to the correct values i.e. the same width and height as your new logo .

Q. Why is there a .zip inside the .zip?
A. Well the forums here have a max of 3.0MB file size limit on .zip files so I made it a .zip then added that one into another .zip, this reduced the file size from the 3.17MB down to 2.69MB! Now simply extract the main -Compressed .zip then extract the inside Innovation_by_Instinct-Avenger_Blue.zip and your ready to rock and roll!

Q. You have a link to your site in the footer, can I remove that?
A. You are not allowed to remove the link to our site i.e. "branding" unless you pay for a Branding Free Version. If I find someone running this without the copyright in place I will contact your host and file a DMCA complaint period the end. *Furthermore, we will not host discussions nor reply to any sort of inquiries on here in regards to paid or branding free versions so please do not bring up the subject of either in this thread.

*Click on the images below to view in a new tab/window, once in said window you can click the image again to zoom once more and see it clearer, providing a more accurate representation of the style .

a) Import the vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-Forum.xml file first.
b) Merge in the vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-CMS.xml (Options when uploading a style allow you to merge into a existing style, choose to merge this into the new style you just created using the Forum.xml.

okay, a bit confused right now. The update email notice has a link to your site to download the file:

vBulletin 4.1.8 Version has a download size that will not upload here, even being compressed twice therefor you must download from my site: http://www.innovationbyinstinct.com/vbdotorg/ and it's only one .zip file to extract

Right now getting a page not found when clicking on the link.

Thanks!!

That was only temporary, Markos noted why it was so large and I corrected. You can find the 4.1.8 .zip file above for download.

Both fixed and fluid have to be side scrolled now? I'm running 1920x1080 so this really shouldn't happen?

Markos,

In additional.css find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Change background-repeat: no-repeat !important; to:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I'll fix in the next version but that should sort the 1920 x 1080 where it's chopped off. Thread/Post counts will return but underneath the forum description and Last Post "title" on right column per say will not be returning, again as with the logo being clickable yet having more ways to reach the forums again and/or refresh I also feel anyone w/ common sense can tell what the last post is after using any form of forum software just once or twice.

Use the 4.1.4-4.1.7 version download if you wish to do that .

Hmm how odd since I run my pc on a 40" Samsung using 1920 x 1080 resolution and don't see that happening in Firefox, IE9, Chrome, or Opera AFTER I make the change:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Be sure to refresh the page (F5) a few times and/or clear your cache via the Maintenance tab in AdminCP (bottom left - Flush System Cache under Maintenance) and if your using a Mac instead of PC you must, I repeat must clear the browsers actual cache. Otherwise the background will not repeat and be chopped-off per your screenshot and per what I just saw when pressing F11 in firefox (full-screen) but updating the code should remedy this .

Well for me in all major browsers full-screened I see it just fine, 1920 x 1080 Full Screen - screenshot in Firefox:




Edit: Markos, just to be clear - this was the Fluid version correct?

If your on 4.1.8 then this may present some slight issues notably the double comma issues etc otherwise it should still work fine.

Take a closer look at your screenshot you just posted and you will see the scroll bar showing at the bottom. Mine is the same as Markos using the fluid version. Using 1680 x 1059.

Ok you two try this and tell me how it looks afterwords, in additional.css find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Paste over those two entire definitions (replace them basically) with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Now how does it look? And thanks for the help, I did notice the scroll bar after you pointed it out .
