View Full Version : Style for Christmas

It's Xmas again.

I made it last Christmas when vb was 3.0.X. So I call it "LastChristmas".
Reminds me "Last christmas, I gave you my heart, but the very next day, you gave it away..."

So I lost the source files, like PSD, FLA files. :disappointed:

For the pain I suffered through style update, I try to edit as less templates as possible. And now only three templates are changed: header, footer and standard_redirect. This makes it compatible for all 3.5.X version. Next year, when I need it, I won't have to do much on the Xmas style. Well, this Christmas is the last christmas of next year also. :ermm:

There is a "big" header. If you don't want to use flash, you can use the head.jpg instead by modify the header template. Or for the download speed, I have this head.jpg sliced. See pics from "header_01.jpg" to "header_08.jpg". These pics are all in "styles/yyxmas/extra" folder.

The style's width is fixed to 770px. May be you like the width unfixed, you can edit the "header" template and "body" in main css. For I am busy these days, sorry.

This styles is made from a windowsblinds theme ChristmasTime by mormegil. Great thank to him.

1. Unzip the file downloaded.
1. Upload folder 'styles' to the ROOT directory of your vb.
2. Upload the XML style in admincp and your done!

The fla.zip contains three different snowing style. You can choose what you like.

Here is a fluid width style for unfixed width use.

I am busy and lazy, I am not clear about the new pics added for the unfixed style use. So, simple rules for simple person. Just copy the whole extra folder . Overwrite exsitings. That's it.

The unfixed version's xml file is in LastChristmas+.zip named vbulletin-style-yyxmas-unfixed.xml.

Enjoy~

Merry Christmas and Happy new year.

This images is only for demo. The style is nothing about the language your vb use.

I would be very happy if you'd be willing to share the PSD files for the buttons, so I can translate them to dutch....

Cheers :D

This is simply wonderful Yack and thank you. I have this style as an option for members because some of mine have slow connections and this would no doubt slow them down. Some of already using and just love it.

The snow falls only in the header at the top. There is a mod you can add to your board to get snowflakes over the entire forum though.

Stlye manager>all stype option> scroll your mouse down and you will see some thing like"Category Strips" "Tableheader"... in all these parts there are "background:...." put the full url for this one. I thinks in your site it is "back ground: /style/..gif" then put it like "back ground: http://www.yoursite.com/styles/image.gif"

Hope this help!

Due to the fixed width and me using a portal, I couldn't get it to look right on the site. However, the graphics were outstanding so I used them to temporarily decorate my primary style (just replacing buttons and icons). I also added the snow effect and it's looking pretty good IMO.

However, I did edit the the forum_new.gif and turned it into an animation. I've attached the file for easy download (if someone wants to use it instead of the default forum_new.gif.

C_P
06 Dec 2005, 02:17
Ok, since I have gotton so much help and positive response from this style, I want to see if I can help on some of the easier questions here.
1. apokphp awesome image, thanks it adds to an already great style!
2. Kerry Jones you go to admincp, vbulletin options, and select Style and Language settings in drop down.Second section down: Default Style
3. samu2 I looked at your site mumsonthenet.co.uk and it appears you have things in order but you must have combined the styel instad of creatin a new one or used the buttons in the wrong style directory.

@TonysDesigns: I am so sorry about the psd files, I made this style last year and now I lost the whole PSD folder. Now I have to use the Gif files edited to make icons and buttons.

@imported_ObiWan: I'll upload a unfixed width version later.

"The fla.zip contains three different snowing style. You can choose what you like."

Mght be a dumb question but what do we do with the .fla files, I did a quick search of the style files and didn't come across any .fla files.

noreturn
17 Dec 2005, 16:48
I have the same question. How do I install those fla files (or of course the 1 we would want to use)? Don't know what to do either. Sorry :mad:
However i also do want to thank Yack very much for all this sharing.

yack
18 Dec 2005, 06:52
@kylek and @noreturn

.fla file are source files of .swf file.

The .fla files here can be edit by Macromedia Flash. For the people wanna use the snowing effect on different background image.

in the instructions it says to uload the style folder to the root and the xml through your admin panel,,,,,i am assuming we should remove the xml from the stye folder first?
usually the xml is seperate from the folder you upload to the server or is this style developed totally different than most and it should be left as is?
thanks

figured this out,thanks

That's impossible for me to get the perfect work at all because vb 3.6.x have different structure (and needs some buttons so it's xml file don't have inside to get them work).

30 Nov 2006, 08:02
Only problem I have for 3.6.4 is that when I use the
vbulletin-style-yyxmas-unfixed.xml the header does not show with the snow effect, instead the top image is in place of the header.

Anyone else working on this?
