This style was developed by my firm Epic Designz as a promotional tool for a new site called YourIndex. This style is free to be used on any forum provided that you retain the small promotional message in the footer (We made it as unobtrusive as possible.) The package includes the full set of PSD's, so you can make changes to suit your board or apply the same layout to non-vBulletin portions of your site. If there are any problems with the style, please report them to me in this thread, so I can get them resolved as quickly as possible.

Update 11/22/2006 Version 1.50
* XML file updated to vBulleitn 3.6.4

Update 11/9/2006 Version 1.40

I'm glad I downloaded it before you change your mind and charge for it:)I have absolutely no plans to ever charge for any of my themes on vBulletin.org - I enjoy giving back to the community that helped me out so much when I first started working with vBulletin about two years ago.

Do you know of a way to make the legacy postbit a fixed size rather than shifting sized for each member? Other than that, I have it working great on my site. Thanks!!

now that is one very nice theme, just wondering, how do i change the width of the column on the left?That would be in the FORUMHOME template, and it's currently set to 250 I think (Just do a text search for width="250", and you'll find the spot.)

cygy2k
24 Aug 2006, 00:43
I found out what the problem is with the legacy postbit, it is tied to a hard coded width and works fine in Firefox but in IE it is completely crappy looking. I'm using the stock template with no changes and it isn't working well.

how can i remove the left side bar ?The easiest way would be to revert the FORUMHOME template and then reapply the category spacing template mod to it from this thread (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=123530&highlight=category+spacing).

Attempting to setup the IBPro Arcade into that template, and cannot find various things in the templates.

In postbit_legacy template cannot find <if condition="$post['joindate']"><div>$vbphrase[join_date]: $post[joindate]</div></if>

In navbar template cannot find <td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="calendar.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[calendar]</a></td>

Andrew
25 Aug 2006, 17:14
The first bit is different because of the background and borders I place around postbit items - Just do a text search for "$vbphrase[join_date]", and you shouldn't have a problem finding it.

As for the navbar item, I moved the navbar into the header template, so if you look in there instead, you should easily find the spot to add your link.

Thats the main problem, the navbar was in the header, cleared that up, added what was needed. Works fine now, juts have to edit the color codes for the arcade and plaza.

Nice skin!
I have a question though. When I create a new forum it does not appear in the right frame (on the home page) but rather takes space across the entire width. It also seems to be missing the borded around it.
I'd like to know if anybody else has that problem... ?

Thanks,

You need to create categories and add forums into the categories - Adding top level forums won't work with the category spacing mod.

What template should i change?

Andrew
31 Aug 2006, 02:11
You would need to move the container table that I have around the forum list in the FORUMHOME template into the header and footer templatest. That would put the left column on all of the pages.

I know it's came up on here a lot, so you might try searching for "adsense conditional" to see what comes up.

I just followed your instructions, and most of the stuff works, however, there's still a lot of blue in the header, forum view, etc.

How would I get rid of that?

Did you upload the images folder via FTP to your forum's root directory ?
I did.

Looking through the folder, I might know where the problem is (just not how to solve it).

in the Blaze folder (same folder that the images folder is in), there's some files called:
layout.html
small button.psd
subforums.psd
blanklogo.psd
large button.psd

etc

which directory should these be uploaded to?

Andrew
03 Sep 2006, 07:02
Those files don't get uploaded - Those are the Photoshop source files for making new buttons and stuff.

Andrew
04 Sep 2006, 15:31
There shouldn't be any problems with either of the postbits - I tested both of them before I released the style. Have you made any other changes to the templates ?

jyajay

I just changed the header code for adding a link for the advanced rule mod. But thats it.

If you browse through the forum as a guest or a normal member the tables are looking fine.

Oh - I forgot that I had placed the login/info panel into that left column. You'd have to move that back into the header or navbar templates most likely, but your starting to get into slightly more complicated territory.

hi,

i have one question concerning your style and flashchat!

normaly in the standard style you have to edit "navbar" template.


"At this point, you should be able to edit some HTML code directly from within your web browser. Locate this text:

<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="login.php?$session[sessionurl]do=logout"
onclick="return log_out()">$vbphrase[log_out]</a></td>


and insert "<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="chat/flashchat.php"
target="flashchat">FlashChat</a></td> ".

with the default style this is easy. but where in the "navbar" template of BLAZE do i have to put the line in? i can't locate the position :( maybe you can help?!


greetings

buma

Andrew
05 Sep 2006, 23:54
The navbar is located in the HEADER template - I literally just cut and pasted it from one to the other, so if you do the search in that template instead, you shouldn't have a problem finding it :)

I got a few wishes; but I would first like to thank you for the Great Skin you Made :D

I would like to know howto add another Table, below the Forum Statistics, like on the forumlink that AR Forums posted.

I also got a small problem, there's a few images not shown, and I have no clue were the problem might be (see attachment),

look at the left side of the title "A few Addons/Updates" , and then you'll see, that the image source is somewere in a folder called "tren_z", but I can nowere find that folder in my vB forum Folder...

Any clue?

You'd prolly need a plugin/mod of some sorts to display the other information that you were after - I don't think you can do that with just a template edit.

10 Sep 2006, 13:17
how did you first add them? I might be able (with alot of reading), to add one myself, by doing some template edit xD

or, AR Forums might be helpful, as it seams that you allready have added 2 additional boxes

Andrew
10 Sep 2006, 14:28
Oh - That's what you were wanting to create. Just open up the FORUMHOME and copy and paste one of the boxes that I already have there right below it. Then just change the content it of it to whatever you'd like.

I honestly cannot determine what is causing that problem for some of you guys - I've been completely unable to recreate it on my dev forums, which leads me to believe it's being caused by one or a number of mods that affect the postbits somehow.

the problem is infraction.gif . It seems fine when you post because you cant give infraction to yourself, it seems fine when you look the board as member, because members cant see infration button.

Great style, it fits very well with our website :)

There does seem to be an issue with either the way we have vB setup, or your style. This problem only happens when we use the Blaze style.

See the bottom area here: http://img179.imageshack.us/img179/723/forumstyleissuews9.jpg

We're running the latest version of vB.

Andrew
09 Oct 2006, 11:13
I just updated the .XML file with a fix for your issue - Upload the new one and you should be all set (I accidentally started the second part of that table within an IF statement, so when you disabled that portion, it didn't create the tables properly.)

rps_1984
10 Oct 2006, 02:07
Works great!!

Does the Your Index link at the bottom need to stay a link? The OP says "you retain the small promotional message in the footer" which to me means the text needs to stay. The message still displays even without it being a link.

Also, I moved it down to the bottom where the other notices are at. I think it looks a little bit better when the link displays in that specific section.

Thanks again! Once our site is up I plan on sending you a PM, I don't think you have any idea how well this style fits with our overall website.

Quick question though. If I wanted to change the color scheme, how would I go about that? Probably a horribly noob question, but I'm racking my brain trying to figure that out, haha.

Also, I'm curious if you could assist with the editing of the navbar. I'd like to add a "home" button to it since I use vbAdvanced CMPS. I was looking in the navbar template, but couldn't see what exactly I needed to do. Any thoughts?

Works great!!

Does the Your Index link at the bottom need to stay a link? The OP says "you retain the small promotional message in the footer" which to me means the text needs to stay. The message still displays even without it being a link.

I was asking me about the same question because this site looks like a parked page with a lot of "usual" spam links. I'd find it a better solution if I can link to a site where you present your work.

Tell us what you think about that.

Great style but may I suggest you make the links darker? I changed them to "#970000" and it's a lot easier on the eyes.

Also, I moved it down to the bottom where the other notices are at. I think it looks a little bit better when the link displays in that specific section.Yes - That link needs to stay in the style, but you are more than welcome to move it to another section as you did.Great style but may I suggest you make the links darker? I changed them to "#970000" and it's a lot easier on the eyes.That's a very small change, which people can do themselves after installation if they choose to do so.anyone? Plz? :(Changing the color scheme of this wouldn't be a quick or easy job, as a lot of the color comes from the images. I don't have the time right now to undertake such a project myself, unless it was a paid service request (Too much going on with school, being in Europe, and my other jobs to be doing free work right now.)

nice design

22 Oct 2006, 20:58
Hello,

Love the design, but I have two problems I can't seem to fix:

1.) Where and how exactly do I modify the header/footer templates so that the login box and forum stats stays up throughout the forum?

2.) How would I put banner ads below the "Users currently browsing" box?

So far, I've succeeded in inserting them in all the wrong places....any help would be appreciated.

I was going to ask a question like the one he asked.

I am wanting to make the sidebar go through out my Teen Forums (http://www.4teensonly.com) is there a simple way of doing so?

I really think it looks better being on all the pages, so if you could help me, I would thank you bunches ;)

I noticed that on IE7 Final the footer moved to the middle of the site on pages which don't require a scrollbar:

Yeah - My xHTML and CSS is perfect acording to the W3C validators, so I would guess that Microsoft has rewritten their own version of the HTML standards yet again. I'm only using Linux at the moment, so I can't get onto an IE7 installation to try and fix it until I get back home in December.

Has anyone had issues with 403 errors when they have installed this style? We have it installed and members are now stating that they are getting random 403 errors when they try to access areas in the forum. I've had the same issue, so I know it's happening. You'll click on say "New Posts" and it will give you a 403 error.. refresh the screen a couple times, and it goes away.

Andrew
03 Nov 2006, 15:16
Adding a style wouldn't cause 403 errors - I would assume it's more along the lines of a problem with your server.

Ophelia
03 Nov 2006, 16:47
It's only happening with this style though. If I turn it back to the one we had before this, we have no issues at all... turn it back to this style, start getting the 403 errors again.

Andrew
03 Nov 2006, 19:51
Anybody else having an issue like this ? I spent a while on my dev forums from a variety of machines that I have access to, and I couldn't get any kind of error. It could also be some sort of disagreement between the style and a mod/hack that you have installed, but again, I don't really have much insight on resolving something like that.

But again....how would I fix it so that the control panel, and forums stats stay on the left throughout the entire forums? And how could I fix it so that banner ads could go below the forums stats?

I've tried to insert the code in the style manager, but keep putting it in the wrong place...

.... little help?

Andrew
05 Nov 2006, 12:12
Moving the sidebar into the header and footer would be quite an intensive process really, which I can't easily explain here in a post. You'd basically have to move the table that contains all that info from the FORUMHOME template into the header and footer templates. I'm also not sure if the statistics portion will work on any page besides the forum homepage, so even if you move it, that section might only work on certain pages unless you're able to right a plugin that can pull the information you need on every page. If I wasn't swamped with school and work right now, I'd be more than happy to help, but I doubt I will have any free time until the term ends in December.

As for the ads in that column, you'd just have to copy and paste one of the tables that's in the FORUMHOME template below itself and just change the title of it and the HTML content.

The .XML file has been updated to vBulletin 3.6.3, but there weren't any changes in the templates.

Ophelia

The .XML file has been updated to vBulletin 3.6.3, but there weren't any changes in the templates.

When installing it states:

This file was created using a different version of vBulletin from the one you are running.

Your version: 3.6.2
File version: 3.6.3

Andrew
09 Nov 2006, 16:25
Yeah - You're running a vBulletin 3.6.2 installation, which is why you're getting the error. You either need to upgrade to vBulletin 3.6.3 or check the little box that says something about ignoring the file version (There weren't any changes between 3.6.2 and 3.6.3, so it will work just fine.)

Hi Andrew,

I installed Firefox 2 and checked my board and your demo again - got the same thing here also. So it can't be only IE7 related. (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0)

Viper007Bond
10 Nov 2006, 08:11
Well in IE6, I have to scroll down to actually see the footer bar, even if the content is really short.

Which is odd, because it should render as it does in FF & IE7 -- at the bottom of the content rather than the bottom of the page.

skin is really cool and really good work but i have a problem

http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/3990/houstonproblemkl9.jpg

how can i fix it ?

The solution for this is very simple for IE.
In the postbit_legacy is writen for this colume "width=175px".
And a small calculation, the buttons are bigger then that together. And IE is a little bit dumber then Mozilla. He can't make a new line. That is the problem.

Change this line in postbit_legacy

Before:

</tr>
<tr valign="top">
<td class="alt2" align="left" width="175px" style="border: $stylevar[cellspacing]px solid $stylevar[tborder_bgcolor]; border-top: 0px; border-bottom: 0px">



After:

</tr>
<tr valign="top">
<td class="alt2" align="left" width="20%" style="border: $stylevar[cellspacing]px solid $stylevar[tborder_bgcolor]; border-top: 0px; border-bottom: 0px">

19 Nov 2006, 08:31
My guess is you uploaded the images to the wrong place - All you needed to do was upload the images folder in the archive over top of the images folder that was already there. It'll add the correct directory structure for it to work then.

I uploaded all the files in the images file directly into the immage file on my board/root.

for a second try I uploaded the blaze folder into the image section. So now under images I have a folder called blaze.

I was thinking I brought the contents to far up the ladder and should've left the blaze folder. Maybe one of them didnt upload I'll go mess around.

keithsan
20 Nov 2006, 03:46
messed around with it. couldnt fix it. re- uploaded everything again but nothing changed. I get the feeling I uploaded everything one level to far altering my original vb to look part blaze, part vb orig, and not all files were allowed to be transfered for names or whatever reason..

Think I'll just switch styles see If i can get a different one integrated correctly.
Maybe I can just return to the orig.

once I figure this all out, I'll upload it again as I like it.

Hello to everybody,

I'm having some issues with this and another style created by Andrew, vBadvanced is the problem, all main forum pages are ok. You can check out the following links to see what I am talkin about:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1141556&postcount=168

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1142058&postcount=170

Thought I'd post these in here too just in case someone has allready resolved these for Blaze.....

Any ideas are welcome, thanks....

PS. Both styles are awesome and working 100% perfect with vBulletin forum, its just stupid vBadvanced that's causing me problems.

This needs to ahve the mod, Visitors today. in Blaze, find the visitors today file by searching for $whotoday and replacing all contents of that file with nothing. Don't delete it, just empty it :D

P.S It may look better if you remove 'Most users ever online was ' from that most users online phrase, but it may not look as good on other themes, so trial and error is the way to go!

I hope you like my minor mod for this skin, i suck at PHP!

This skin rocks.

EDIT: Oh and i did try to add members who posted today aswell, but it made it look realy bad as it repeated alot of names, it also looked fake.

I only support the current version of vBulletin with my styles, so I don't save the previous versions of the .XML file unfortunately. If somebody doesn't have them, then you might have to upgrade or try and import the newer version of the style and check for error (A lot of times it will still work - You just might have to do a couple of quick template edits to get it to 100% functionality.)

Last night I began making the change after 4 years of phpBB to vBulletin. I was VERY excited to see this theme, as it is almost identical to the color scheme on our main index webpage: www.texasbbqrub.com


However. I'm having a problem with the forum right now. it seems like it is not displaying the footer or header backgrounds. Unless template.html goes somewhere, but in one of the posts in this 11 page thread I read that it's jsut for personal use.

Here is the vBulletin site I am working on http://www.texasbbqrub.com/forum/

Anyone have any pointers? I'm pretty new to vBulletin and I wanted to get the theme set up before I do anything else so I can see how it looks. Thanks in advance.

Andrew
12 Jan 2007, 01:08
Somewhere in your vBulletin options you have a trailing forward slash after your forum URL. If you look at the source code it's looking for http://forum.texasbbqrub.com//images/blaze/header_background.gif, which has two forward slashes at the end of the URL.

TexasBlake
12 Jan 2007, 01:19
Perhaps the subdomain is part of the problem too. Either the subdomain isn't set up correctly or it is still taking time in DNS because http://forum.texasbbqrub.com goes straight to my index and not to the forum. Thank you. I will try to remove the trailing slash and see if that fixes it.

TexasBlake
12 Jan 2007, 01:27

First I'd like to say its a great theme, and looks very professional.

I am having a problem with my site showing the footer_background.gif on the index ONLY. It shows in the UserCP as well as forums and threads, but not on the index. The Header background shows however. I don't have any modifications or anything else installed besides this style.

I'm not good at all with coding, sorry.

Where you put that forum sponsors section into your homepage you closed the table containing it twice. That involuntarily closed the main table, which is why that background isn't showing up I think.

The easiest way would be to revert the FORUMHOME template and then reapply the category spacing template mod to it from this thread (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=123530&highlight=category+spacing).

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. But I'm trying to get the log in stuff on the top.


I go to my styles and templates. Go to FORUMHOME and push the revert button. Then I go to that Category Spacing mod and do what that says.

My log in box completely disappears. I've done this 4-5 times now to see if maybe I'm missing something in the directions. But I'm just trying to follow what your quote says.

Here is what FORUMHOME looks like:

It's not so much that it's not an easy change, it's just a time consuming change when it comes to reworking the templates. If you're interested in paying to have it done, send me a PM, and we can work out the details. I just have too much going on right now to take the time and do it for free.

ThanksI assume you're referring to the logo ? If so, then all you have to do is change the alignment of it's table cell to center.

great theme, just wondering if there will be blue color version lolDoubtful - I just don't have the time right now to start recoloring things. If you have Photoshop and a couple of hours, it's really not that hard to do on your own, as I've included all of the .PSD's.

Can Upload Animated GIF for Signature Yes

allowing [IMG] is fine with me, i dont mind signature pictures...I however do not want to allow the option to upload them to my server...How do i shut this off? Is this a part of your template or is it a VB thing that should be asked on their main forum?

This Style is missing something that the AddonChat is asking for editing and adding. So basicly its impossible to integrate the chat. The only thing you will see is the button "Chat Room" but when clicked would not do anything.

Well it really depends on how you want it, change the width/height of the image as well as where it is located on the sever. Find this in the "header" template in the common templates.

You decide with and height.

See the bold width and height, you can change that to what your logo's width and height is as well as where the logo is situated aswell in the bold

height="86" width="576

If ya need help I could change it for you or just give me the code, it depends on what you want your logo to be size wize:)

Where do you upload this to and what folder? I've had problems with this skin before. I uploaded last time and it installed properly. Now I have uploaded it again with a fresh install and I have issues with my navbar and banner that come default with this skin: They are not appearing.

You upload the folder "blaze" to your images folder, what vb are you running?

Ok, I installed this style and I love it! However, I have three important questions:

1) How can I add the whole PM box that's on the left side of the screen to show up on the top right (inside the same box with the root folders like the pm box is on default style)? The PM box showing up on the left is fine as-is for the forum home page but once you leave the homepage to view threads/posts I would like the PM box to appear inside the root folder box on the top right like the default style, that way, users don't have to go all the way back to the forum homepage everytime to check for new PM's.

2) I noticed that there have been plus signs (+) after each username that's logged in (stats box at the bottom). Is there a way to stop it?

3) How do you add banner(s) to the VERY TOP RIGHT like you have in your demo?

THANKS IN ADVANCE! :up:

I know this is a long shot, but none of the background images in this style are showing when I install on vb 3.6.4 Anything I can check or do to make them work? The link to the image seems valid (I went to page source and pasted the link to header_background.gif in a new browser window and it showed up no problem).

If you want help, I'll help you PM me.


It's the same like I got after the first day on my board. I'm running 3.6.5
Can you please post the solution for the problem with the missing background of the navbar if you were able to fix it?

It will work, make sure you have "Ignore Style Version" as Yes when uploading the .xml file

How can I change the main font colour? I want to change it to black, I've attached a screenshot of what I mean.

Thanks,

Have the first or second alternating colors set as "#000000" for the font colors found in "Main CSS"

Hi!

Love the style, and tried to follow your instructions on how to implement an Adsense beside the logo. The problem is that it's too close to the logo, i would want it to aligned to the right.

This is my header code:
<!-- logo -->
<a name="top"></a>
<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="fullheight">
<tr>
<td height="105" style="background: url($vboptions[bburl]/images/blaze/header_background.gif)"><a href="http://www.freakshow.no"><img src="http://www.freakshow.no/forum/images/blaze/logo.gif" alt="Logo" border="0" width="400" height="105" /></a>

<!-- Advertisement Code Here -->
<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-9563329202702130";
google_ad_width = 468;
google_ad_height = 60;
google_ad_format = "468x60_as";
google_ad_type = "text_image";
google_ad_channel = "";
google_color_border = "CCCCCC";
google_color_bg = "434343";
google_color_link = "666666";
google_color_text = "333333";
google_color_url = "666666";
//-->
</script>
<script type="text/javascript"

</script>
<!-- End Advertisement Code Here -->

</td>
</tr>

To make logo clickable edit this in your header tempate in "Common Templates"

<a href="http://yoursite.com"><img title="Logo" src="images/blaze/logo.jpg" alt="Logo" border="0" height="86" width="576"></a>


Make sure to change the width/height.


Anyone know exactly where that code goes? The header template for this style is much different from the default header template.

Hey Red, my question was about where IN the header template? (amongst the lines and lines of code)

I know that the style isn't supported anymore but I am hoping someone who has made this mod on this style already can help me out. P.S. thanks for grey blue skin from AF it served me well for over a year :)

Red Matrix

NP Raize. To answer your question, you can open up your "Common Templates" and expand your header window. Look for your logo text: <img title="Logo" src="images/blaze/logo.jpg" alt="Logo" border="0" height="86" width="576">

and all you gotta do is add this (<a href="http://yoursite.com">) before, and </a> after.

Hey guys. Just wondering how to add the login box to the navbar and so the PM's show up in the same place as well. This will be a huge help to my members so they can see their PM's throughout the site. Here is a pic to show you guys what I am talking about and where I want this added.

I assume you're referring to the logo ? If so, then all you have to do is change the alignment of it's table cell to center.





Where or how do i do this.

I have installed this skin, and like it very much.

I am having one problem that I hope someone can help with. The "New Post in Forum" icon on the main page does not change to "No New Posts in Forum" icon the first time a user reads the new post...it only changes after the user goes back in a second time.

Can anyone help determine how to fix this?

Thank you

Since the developer doesn't support this skin any more.

Cant someone step up to the plate and update it to work with all the new versions vBulletin puts out.

I'd like to know why all the new updates always miss's up all these styles.

Cheers

The style only had about 3-4 templates to revert on the 3.6.7 PL1
Even though I don't see how the navbar template needed reverting
