Light Style

Notes
I would include the PSD's used to make the skin but PS crashed before I saved them :|
I have removed the tcat collapse buttons from forumhome, and IM icons from the normal postbit because they did not fit the stye I was going for.
There are 2 .xml files in the zip; the one with 'X' at the end had a table width of 100% set and the file with out has a width of 750px (you can always change this in the header template)
You free to use this on your forums and the rest of your site as long as you retain the copyright notice at the bottom :)

Installation

Unzip “fromBasics_Light” and upload the files in the upload folder to the correct places.
Log into your Admin control panel.
In 'Styles & Templates' Go to 'Styles & Templates' and Import Style XML File.


Enjoy!

And please don't forget to click Install! (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/vborg_miscactions.php?do=installhack&threadid=111356)

The colors and format of this style are great! The only thing that I don't like about the style are the lack of alternate colors. It makes it more difficult to distinguish between the two areas. Pending the colors chosen for the two alternate colors, a different color border might be necessary too. Otherwise, I really like it. *installs*

Thanks guys.
I might consider varying the colours in the future, could be confusing on large boards :)

Thanks,

You can find the New Post icons in the images folder named 'fB_Light/statusicon'. Just replace the images in there with the ones you want.


how do i change the logo?

The logo is in the image folder named 'fB_Light/misc' under the name 'header750x100.png'. As the name suggests the default logo size is 750px by 100px, if you want to enlarge the image you will have to edit the CSS.

Thanks,
Mat

bah i aint got a clue what to edit it to!?

what ever i try it just says no new posts. even with forums with new posts!! :(:( help dude! pweese, btw it looks so good in this style :P

also the code im removing and replace with the text is :

<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" />

Nutz
27 Mar 2006, 01:38
OK.

## FIND ##
<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" />
##########

## REPLACE WITH ##
<if condition="$forum[statusicon] == 'new' ">
#New Post Text#
<else />
#Old Post Text#
</if>
###################

That should get you started :)
Just note that there can be 5 types of $forum[statusicon]

new - New Post
old - No New Posts
old_lock - No New Posts and Locked
new_lock - New Posts and Locked
link - the forum is a link


So you can add condictions for each eg.
<if condition="$forum[statusicon] == 'old_lock' ">
#Old Locked Text#
</if>

Hope that helps :D

Thanks,
Mat

PS: Please click the install button :D

thanks dude was thinking if i gotta use the else command, but theres another template with the nopost etc? was well confusing :S lol cheers bud

oh edit.

wot about code for changing colour size etc??

just <font size=#> wrap around?

Nutz
27 Mar 2006, 02:52
You could use <font> but I would use <div> tags as so:
<div style="color: #FFFFFF;font-size: 10px;"> and so on.

This style refuses to load the buttons. Yes the files are in the right place.

It installed fine and everything shows on the board fine except the images, ive never had a problem with a style before.

Dunno what im missing here.

looks like your image paths are wrong eg.

in your admincp find your way to the "Light" skins StyleVars and make sure all the locations are correct.

hey mate, installed this style, it's nice...

but the title image path in style options, i've got my banner and it's not picking up on it. The title image is defined in the parent style, and the other child style are getting it, but not this one...

any ideas?

thanks

Hi Guys.

I installed this style on my board (vB 3.5.3) but the style is very wrong in the forumhome. Any solution?

Firstly, excellent style NUTZ! Couple of issues, there is no reply_small.gif for the reply with quote button (PMs). Also there is no standard reply button there. No major thing, just you have to reply with a quote everytime!

The other problem is i don't seem to have the smilies box with your style. It's switched on in the options...but it doesn't display. Is that a style issue or where could i edit to make sure the smilies box shows on the reply post?

Lastly, oh bugger we lost in penalties :(
