The AlienBlue vBulletin Style was originally to be released at AlienSector, however never made it past the initial demo stage on the website. The AlienBlue vBulletin Style has since been converted by SixteenOhNine to work with vBulletin 3.5.4.

Comes in Blue, Red and Green colors with fixed and fluid versions for each color. An unbranded version is available at the below link for $25 (does not include links back to SixteenOhNine).

v1.01 includes a fix to the logout link, a correct version of the Fluid Blue style and the merging of the two zip files into one.

Release URL: http://www.sixteenohnine.com/vbulletin-project-8.html

Please be sure to click install if you use this style! It will ensure you are notified of any updates.

Screenshot is available below.

While not bugging, he was online and tempted me to find the older of the styles released a while back at AlienSector :). Given 2 hours and a little modification to the original style, it's up and running once again and is actually being released this time around ;).

That's hot, Great work :D

Thanks much. We're tossing around a few ideas for a few new styles as it stands as well as a premium download center on-site soon. We're going to start offering priority support through our website with the lauch of our community and a quite a few additional options for subscribers :).

While all of the details have not been ironed out, we're planning on offering subsribers the option to request additional color modifications of the style, access to additional downloads, priority support, on-site downloads and a bit more.

Hopefully we'll see quite a few of you around once the community project is launched :).

I can't get the images to display. :/

SixteenOhNine
28 Apr 2006, 05:07
You need to have a /styles folder just as you do a /images folder. So in your directory listing you should have:

./admincp
./modcp
./customavatars
./images
./styles
...etc

The style will have to be modified if you upload the ./styles folder anywhere else.

Yeah, I fixed it a while ago.
Nice to see AS skins back online brother =)

SixteenOhNine
28 Apr 2006, 06:25
Hoping to bring a few more online once I can find them :). Got a few new ones in the works as well, though not all will be released to vB.com/.org, quite a few will be Premium Member releases only through our community.

This is not to say we won't be releasing any additional free styles as we will :).

Aken
28 Apr 2006, 11:18
Through I won't be using the style, I am very pleased to use a handful of the images! They fit in quite well with my scheme :)

Thanks!

brilliant i'll be popping over to your place to pay you to have the branding free after our family holidays (we are saving up like loonys for that at the mo).

This is one of the best i have seen around.....

SixteenOhNine
28 Apr 2006, 20:07
Sounds good, let me know when you register :). We'd love to have you aboard and we're looking to expand even more so in the very near future. Hopefully we'll grab a few comments and suggestions from our visitors & members!

Hope all goes well over the Holidays :).

got javascript errors on mine. also the catbg in the nav is not showing up in the fluid version.

SixteenOhNine
29 Apr 2006, 16:06
Please detail the JS errors and also check the .tcat style setting. All was working fine upon release :).

I will be glad to look over things, however and make sure all is working.

I have both Green and Blue running on 3.5.4. I've done some tweaking, but they look great.

They were built on 3.5.4, however there are not a great deal of changes from the 3.5.3 to 3.5.4 so it *should* work fine.

possible to make the navbar similar to the orignal ones?

SixteenOhNine
05 May 2006, 04:40
If you're looking to revert back to the older navigation bar that vBulletin uses as stock, simply remove the navigation bit from the header template and then simply revert the navbar template back to it's original state :).

If you're looking to do something more, please be a bit more specific and I'll do my best to help :).

Great style, but it is possible to change something with the link color ? The Links you post in this Style have the same color as the text so you can see if it's normal text or an URL. Maybe it's possible to Change the Link Color or underline the URLs in a post. And if you don't want to change it in this style, maybe it's possible to tell me how i can underline the URLs. :)

cu !

SixteenOhNine
08 May 2006, 17:33
All the link colors can be modified through the original style settings. The style link color controls are below the 3 textarea/text boxes when you are editing the styles settings.

Simply change the color codes over to those that suit your needs :).

Firefox.

Also, I think a couple of images are missing.

Great great style! I'm currently using it for my forum and my users love it!

I was just wondering how I can add padding to the top of the forum to make it drop down a little.

nm, just added a br to the header.

Hi SixteenOhNine,

Just bought the unbranded version and tried to install it. Please can you help me as it has gone wrong...www.newbusinessportal.co.uk where you will be able to see the problem!

Just can't get certain parts of the site to change style.

Thanks

The left column doesn't work with vbadvanced, but it's a great theme. *installs*

This is a really nice style :)

Was going to use it before I bought my current one. And now that I'm looking on adding another style - figured I'd come back to this one, problem is - i'm using 3.6 now, any chance this will be updated to work with 3.6?

I added the AlienBlue-fluid and I am missing icons now and the coloring isn't like the standard AlienBlue-Fixed. Also when in threads alot of the thread options don't work like rate thread, thread tools and search this thread. Any idea why? I am using vbulletin 3.5.4 and vbadvanced. Some of my vbadvanced modules are showing up now that I added this theme. Thanks.

SixteenOhNine

Wow, have I missed a lot of posts. Sorry guys. Looks like my spam filter was gobbling up all the posts.

3.6 is in development as I speak. I hope to launch it shortly.

To fix most of your display problems, install the fixed version, then install the fluid version on top of it. The fluid version doesn't contain all the details, it only modifies the fixed version.

No, that's not pointed out in the documentation or anything (my apologies), it'll be taken care of as well. I'll probably make the fluid a full version so you don't have to mess with this anymore.

I'm not real familiar with vBAdvanced, but I don't think AlienBlue will support it fully right off the back. If anyone does any modes to increase it's vBA support, feel free to PM me with the details so I can share with all.

Thanks!

I have this installed on 3.6.4 and i'm having some issues with vbmenu_register

the DHTML menus work fine throughout the site except for inside a multi page thread. menus like "thread tools", "search thread", and "rate thread" will only work on a single page thread. once it goes to multiple pages, they die.

when I look at the page nav

alienblue has this : id="pagenav.16" class="vbmenu_control"
all of the 3.64 templates that work have this : id="pagenav.42" class="vbmenu_control"

I'm just starting with VB3 so I have no idea where that id is generated & I can't figure out why it's different in the alienblue skin. I don't see any template change that would have effected it.

here's the javascript error I get

fetch_object("pagenav_form") has no properties
http://www.sternfannetwork.com/forums/clientscript/vbulletin_global.js?v=364
Line 1718

if anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it

I've just fixed the problem with vBulltin staff's help. Please try this:

Edit navbar template, append this code to the end.
<!-- PAGENAV POPUP -->

<div class="vbmenu_popup" id="pagenav_menu" style="display:none">
<table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="1" border="0">
<tr>
<td class="thead" nowrap="nowrap">$vbphrase[go_to_page]</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="vbmenu_option" title="nohilite">
<form action="$vboptions[forumhome].php" method="get" onsubmit="return this.gotopage()" id="pagenav_form">
<input type="text" class="bginput" id="pagenav_itxt" style="font-size:11px" size="4" />
<input type="button" class="button" id="pagenav_ibtn" value="$vbphrase[go]" />
</form>
</td>
</tr>

I'll have to search the templates because the menus were working on some pages so now I feel like this div may be doubled up on some pages
