I like it and installed it but on my photopost and vbadvanced pages the theme is not working correctly (missing the images in the header and footer)

How do I fix it or do I have to upload the FH_Faddah_F folder to both of the other area's image directories?

Another great theme egtrix - I really like your fluid styles. We'll be using this on a new venture currently under construction.

Many thanks - keep up the excellent work!

Mntsnow, glad that you like it :)
As for the photopost, this means that photopost folder is not placed under the vBulletin folder, so to correct this problem all you have to do is to edit the header and the footer template and change all the image paths from:
images/FH_FaddaF/ImageNae.gif

to

http://www.YouDomainName.com/vBulletinFolder/images/FH_FaddaF/ImageNae.gif

ofcourse substitute "YourDomainName" with you domain name and so the "vBulletin Folder"

As for the vbAdvanced problem, copy the CMPS index file under your vBulletin directory and that's it.

Thanks.... I did the edits (whew...alot of image links :) )

just wondering but is there a way to use "custom call" (dont know what to call it) in this situation where it would be something like

[vbforumurl]/images/whateverstylefolder/nameofimage

that would fix it with a heck of a lot less editing and would make the theme style more friendly?

I know what you mean, but for photopost (from what i know when it was called vbagallery) that it's installed outside forum folder, so in the case, the forum home for photopost will still be http://www.domainname.com/galley and not www.domainname.com/forums and that's what causes the problem and not the header code :)

Ahhh.....I see what you mean now.....Below is what I was thinking...

$vboptions[bburl]/ images/whateverstylefolder/nameofimage

Id love to see some "dark" styles from you as well. I really like your header work especially

Man this is an awesome Style!! I cannot wait to install it. A question I have is...how hard would it be to add my 468x60 banner to the left of the google ads or possibly to the center of the screen in the area just below the advert area?

To me this is the best stye I have seen so far and I have been searching everywhere!! Kudoz...

The Bish, many thanks for your post and I'm really glad that you like this skin :)
As for placing a banner beside the Adsense one, I'm afraid this is not possible as this will mess the html table and the site header won't look ok.

Its funny, i saw this long time ago, and dismissed it.. but, now that i have a news site, it is something pretty neat! thank you.

BTW, Fiddah is Silver in Arabic and not Faddah. Its ermm like saying Salver instead of Silver :)

I like this style, and i think it can suit many sites, just for me i think it is bit bulky.. just too heavy from the top. I wish there was streamlined version.

heh, i think you should make me one for the arabic correction ;) lol.

Hi egtrix, A question...
Is it possible to remove the gooogle adds totally from the header and footer ???

Nice theme! Unfortunately, my forum won't show the cat_top_bg image. How do I fix that? (All other images work perfectly.)
I had this problem too, to fix you need to go the styles main css and scroll down to the additional CSS section and change this:
.cat-top {
padding: 0;
margin: 0;
background: url(images/FH_Faddah/misc/cat_top_bg.gif);
width: 100%;
text-align: center;
color: #004669;
font-weight: bold;
font-size: 11px
}

To:

.cat-top {
padding: 0;
margin: 0;
background: url(images/FH_Faddah_F/misc/cat_top_bg.gif);
width: 100%;
text-align: center;
color: #004669;
font-weight: bold;
font-size: 11px
}



There's also another one in that section that's wrong too:

Change this:
#footer {
background: url(images/FH_Faddah/misc/footer_bg.gif);
height: 40px;
width: 100%
}

To:
#footer {
background: url(images/FH_Faddah_F/misc/footer_bg.gif);
height: 40px;
width: 100%
}

wi11ie1950, thanks for your post :)
Yes open the header and footer templates and search for the Google code and just remove it. This won't affect the skin in anyway.

caco, you are always welcome :)

This problem exists at your forum because you are using the fixed skin version and not the fluid one that is in this thread. So please install the fluid one and the logout button will appear.

egtrix
23 Oct 2006, 22:14
Greek76 many thanks and really glad that you like it. They are both there but Google sometimes takes time to display it's ads or they won't show in the case that you have more than 3 Google ads in the same page :)

Thank you guys for your posts and sorry for the delay in answering them but I was out of business for a while after selling my website, and now i'm back and starting a new site. And I will make new releases for all the free skins again and I will start with both Faddah Style & Cairo Style which will be updated next week with such bug fixes.

Any chance for a faddah style for 3.7.3? I love the style and have been postponing upgrading VB because I dont want to lose it. Thanks,
