PLEASE REMEMBER TO CLICK INSTALL

UPDATE: the color mismatch found in the gradient for catagories has now been fixed in the new version, this should solve the problem that occurs where people use forum description in their catagories.

Hello guys, this is my third skin i've released on here so i hope you guys like it.

Anyway this skin is supposed to be an imitation of the proboards black skin, with a few touches of my own, i've gotten it as close to the skin as possible and its a pretty basic skin that doesn't require much to load.

I'm not very good at button making so i left the default ones, but if anyone wants to make some for this skin please let me know so we can add it here.

anyways i'm pretty pleased with the way this turned out as i was just messing about with some settings when i discovered it looked similar to the proboards skins i used to use when i had one (a LONG time ago).

there isn't much to do on your part and installation take around 3 minuites or so.

screenshots are provided ^_^ anyways i hope you like it.

THIS SKIN IS FREE BUT IF YOU'D LIKE TO DONATE TO HELP FUND US PLEASE FEEL FREE TO DO SO BELOW:

this might be a really stupid question but will 3.6 skins work on 3.5.4? im not ready for the upgrade and will be sticking w/ 3.5.4. i thought i read somewhere on here that they were simular in base structure and some things were compatable. great looking skin though.

Neo_Angelo
23 Jul 2006, 20:59
thank, i believe this skin to work on 3.5.4, since there no real template edits made so i assume it would yes.

what about some new icons for dark background? the original vb icons looking bad.

Neo_Angelo
24 Jul 2006, 20:59
yes, i'm not a button designer.....i admit i'm terrible at button icons, thats why all my skins get stuck with the vB icons. thats why my skins lack compared to everyone elses, and is why in my release i ask for button designers to come up with some buttons ^_^

to do this go to your style VARS for the proboards black skin and then alter the logo url for it.

Neo_Angelo
15 Sep 2006, 13:34
i started out on proboards and i always liked the black theme, which is why i re-created it for vB. plus i know a few people who like it. and it must be liked with so many downloads ^_^

Beautiful skin....Can someone help me? I'd like for the entire forums to be fixed at 982W for this template, but I'm new to VB. I've tried and tried, but can't get the forums to center, stay the size I want, or match up with my header image.

Bill

there is space for the forum descriptions if you use them. my example screenshots are from my own forum which doesn't need big descriptions.

the tables themselves expand the more text you put into them.

Have you checked the Button Set area of the Graphics section here?

thank you MeMySelfNi.

the skin generally does look good on forums, and using the proboards theme i think looks very smooth and original on vBulletin. glad people like it.

hey Neo, nice theme,

my only grip is:

can you fit the theme to accomodate forum descriptions, the text looks off and is hard to read,

example:

Do you have a MAC? Just asking cuz I see it as clean as well. My only experience with any fonts being unclear is on a the MAC, but that is true for most fonts when it comes to these computers, as they don't always remain as true fonts. :confused: soz

Yo Tom...BTW: This style is very cool... :cool: Thumbs up man!

Nice, this is a basic CSS style right? Im looking for these. Thank you.

edit: and im number 100 install ;)

Neo_Angelo
16 Nov 2006, 20:10
yes this skin is VERY basic and just mimics the simplicity and basic looks of the proboards black style. its aim was to be a mimmic of that skin whilst being easy to load on servers as well as look nice.

20 Nov 2006, 15:39
Very nice very fast loading buttttttttttttttttttt only problem is i got like 20 sections
the bar for each section which makes diffe categ is too narrow needs to be 1/4 inch larger it confuses each categ to each other.... other than that its a winner if u can make this with a Center section so each title will show in the midle it makes it look even better...

Neo_Angelo
20 Nov 2006, 21:41
thanks for the feedback, i will be updating this skin with fixes soon. and i'll try to fix that problem ^_^.

i think i know what is happening, because i made the gradient bar 30 pixels in height, message boards with descriptions make itstrech but the image still stays the same siz,e if i can figure out how to strech the image to it would solve it, but i have another idea should it fail. i'll release the update sometime soon.

I have this skin installed and it looks stunning.

www.photography-forum.org

my only problem - please be patient as Im relativley new to the coding side.

I love all the colours - the text etc.

but when you go to make a post - in the smileys box - the button marked "more" which then opens up the extra smileys box is the same colour as the background so you cant see it - it is there because when you hover over it it changes colour.

How do I change just that buttons colour without changing all the text ??

Neo_Angelo
28 Nov 2006, 13:12
i'll have a look for you i'm pretty sure its something to do with the highlight colour.

Neo_Angelo
23 Dec 2006, 21:18
try looking in STYLEVARS, i'm not sure about that myself since i've never needed to alter mine. but i'm pretty sure theres an option for it. i'll look into it.

I think it kinda sucks how you stuck with some vb default graphics, expecially how they are not transparent on the boarder and are blue when your skin is black. The css is a 10 pointer though, ;)

Neo_Angelo
18 Jan 2007, 14:52
yeah i'm not an great button maker so buttons are not my strong point, and i left it with the defaults so users could choose new button sets from the variety available here.

Neo_Angelo
10 Nov 2007, 12:30
The style works in 3.6.8 as far as i'm aware, not alot but the colors changed in the release. since its only a basic skin with no really modifications it'll work on ANY version. if you run into problems i'll try to help you out.
