What can i do to remove some of the buttons that say news and stuff? I only need the one for the arcade.

egtrix

Andromeda2875, thanks for your post :) , you can replace the unneeded buttons with the empty buttons in the empty buttons folder or you can edit the PSD file.

For some reason or another the drop-down menus for Thread Tools, Search This Thread, etc won't drop down.

Any ideas?

I've found some suggestions about reverting the navbar when this happens, but that didn't fix anything. I also tried installing this style again just to see if it maybe screwed up while importing or something, but that wasn't the case.

This is the code for the navbar you've provided... does it match what you're running?:

<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function log_out()
{
ht = document.getElementsByTagName("html");
ht[0].style.filter = "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(grayscale=1)";
if (confirm('$vbphrase[sure_you_want_to_log_out]'))
{
return true;
}
else
{
ht[0].style.filter = "";
return false;
}
}
//-->
</script>


<!-- breadcrumb, login, pm info -->
<table cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
<tr>
<td width="100%">
<if condition="is_array($navbits)">
<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
<tr valign="bottom">
<td><a href="#" onclick="history.back(1); return false;"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/navbits_start.gif" alt="$vbphrase[go_back]" border="0" /></a></td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td width="100%"><span class="navbar"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php$session[sessionurl_q]" accesskey="1">$vboptions[bbtitle]</a></span> $navbits[breadcrumb]</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="navbar" style="font-size:10pt; padding-top:1px" colspan="3"><a href="$scriptpath"><img class="inlineimg" src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/navbits_finallink.gif" alt="$vbphrase[reload_this_page]" border="0" /></a> <strong>$navbits[lastelement]</strong></td>
</tr>
</table>
<else />
<div class="navbar" style="font-size:10pt"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php$session[sessionurl_q]" accesskey="1"><img class="inlineimg" src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/navbits_start.gif" alt="" border="0" /></a> <strong>$vboptions[bbtitle]</strong></div>
</if>
</td>



</tr>
</table>

<!-- / breadcrumb, login, pm info -->



<br />
<if condition="$show['forumdesc']">
<table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
<tr>
<td class="alt1" width="100%"><strong>$foruminfo[title]</strong> <span class="smallfont">$foruminfo[description]</span></td>

Hello SilentNoise and thank you for your post :) Well this skin is the same one in the demo link which can be found at : http://www.forumshelp.com/vb/forumdisplay.php?f=2
and things are working ok there, so I think that you might have a conflict with another installed mod that changes the skin's layout. And reverting the navbar has no relation at all with your problem. From what I see that there is another mod that is using the Popup menu controls and causes this mess, try to revise your recently installed mods and simply disable the one causing the problem.

Oh ya, I forgot to mention that I loved the header in this theme.... great layout.

Of course I wanted to make the board fluid to 90% and that meant recoding a good portion of the header...... maybe that has to do with my problem?.... but I never touched anything other than the graphical layout (I figured that this would be easy enough, but the the way you've coded that thing gave me more work than expected :)), and I've changed a bunch of the graphics on this to customize it more it our needs...... it could've saved me a bunch of time had I known there was already a blue version of the theme too, but whatever :P. Haha.

If you want to see what I've done: http://forum.fordpower.ca (FYI: I still have to give you your "layout by" credit before the look is done)


Anyway, back to what I was talking about earlier:
Hmmm.... well the only mods I've installed are psiStats (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=127980&highlight=psistats)and the code the separates stickies from regular threads (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=117944&highlight=sticky). Both are now uninstalled and I'm still having issues....... I'll pick through it some more though and see what I can come up with.

Good job but yes you would probably have saved much time by using the blue version :)
As for the drop down menus problem, I still have no clue as the installed mods shouldn't change anything or make a conflict with the skin.


mktrilogy, thanks for your post :) yes you can open the header and footer templates and search for the Google code and remove it and this won't affect the skin in anyway.

SilentNoise
06 Oct 2006, 20:34
it's coded into the header and footer. You can just go into the templates and remove it

what does that mean?

Oh sorry man, I somehow didn't see your last post (it's been a crazy and stupid day here at work so far). I was replying to mktrilogy's question:
thanks, i really like the style :) Is there a way we can remove the google adsense?


Anyway, I'll keep looking and see what I can find, but thanks for your time. It's appreciated. I'll let you know if I figure it out.

SilentNoise
07 Oct 2006, 00:56
WOOT!.... OK, it figures that it was something so retardedly simple, but that's usually the way these things are.

Anyway, when I was recoding the footer, I removed this from the very very bottom of the footer code:

<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
// Main vBulletin Javascript Initialization
vBulletin_init();
//-->
</script>


Lesson be learned.... DON'T MOVE OR REMOVE THIS :p
hehe... oops!

Anu idea what's going on here? The tables seem to be messed up, I though it was just on the previous style I installed but the same thing is happening on this one.
See screenshot below. Hope someone can help cos it is really annoying.

egtrix
25 Mar 2007, 22:28
If both styles mess up when installed to your forum, then there is a plugin or a template modification that you have installed as well and it's not compatable with the style, so please provide a URL and let me know if you have done any template changes lately.

Spank
25 Mar 2007, 23:12
Hi, thanks for the quick reply. The theme I was using was working fine, it only messed up when installing a new theme which I've since deleted. I haven't edited any templates manually , I've installed some hacks which didn't effect the forum index.

Subforums are looking ok though. This has really got me stumped.

You are welcome :) What are the values for your forum and sub forum depth?

Spank
26 Mar 2007, 19:51
I have the depth option all set to '0' in the 'Forum Listings Display Options'

egtrix
26 Mar 2007, 20:45
That's probably the reason for the problem please change the following settings:
Depth of Forums - Forum Home ---> 2
Depth of Forums - Forum Display ---> 2
And please let me know whether this will solve your forum's problem or not.

Spank
26 Mar 2007, 20:52
Nope, that just added subforums to tho the forum listings. =S

hi, love this style.

question, i just uploaded ibproarcade.

how do i make it so the arcade button goes to the arcade?

i did the first 2 template edits. the third one just put a arcade word between the buttons and wrecked the layout.

For the life of me, I forget what font you're using for the buttons...its a generic one too, what is it?
