View Full Version : Black and Blue Style

Hello, all!

I finally decided to release a style. It is a vB 3.6.5, 951 pixels fixed width, dark blue and deep gray/black style. I developed this theme on my test installation on my PC, so unfortunately there is no live demo, but I've attached a couple of screenshots. The theme has been tested with FireFox 2.0, Internet Explorer 6 and 7, and Opera 9.0.

I tried to make it so customizing it is a relatively painless procedure. In the header template, I commented where you can add your own logo, 468x60 ad code, and customize the links (Link1, Link2, etc.).

Included in the zip file are the xml file, button PSDs and icons with a dark matting.

There is no theme copyright in the footer, or any links to any sites of mine. Please, though, do not redistribute or sell the theme.

I'll support it as time allows, and I'll do my best to keep it up to date with each new vB release. If you wish to hire me to do extra customization on it, such as develop a logo, change the buttons, statusicons, etc., just send me a PM.

Please remember to "Mark as Installed"! Bonus points if you decide to throw a donation my way. :p

1-12-2007:
Added the PSD for the layout to the zip file.

5-03-2007:
Added a fluid version of this style. The installation instructions are the same, except for the obvious file name differences. Additionally, the fixed version of this style has been adjusted so that you can set your logo graphic in the "Title Image" field of the style manager, instead of having to edit the header template.

9-10-2007:
Updated the .xml files for vB version 3.6.8.

Installation Instructions:

1. Unzip the "blackandblue_fixed-style.zip" file.
2. Upload the two folders, "icons" and "blackandblue" in the image directory to your forum's image directory.
3. In your admincp, click "Download/Upload Styles" under "Styles and Templates".
4. In the "Import Style XML File" section, browse for the file, "bb-fixed-style.xml" included in the zip file and click the "Import" button, leaving the rest of the options at their defaults.

Enjoy!

Installed on my board (www.houston-dsm.org/forums) and it looks/works great in IE6 and IE7... but Firefox users are having trouble with the navbar.

Screenshot from a FF user is attached... any ideas? :)

Edited to add: The user who took the screenshot is on FF 1.5. I realize the style was tested in 2.0. Is there a fix so this will work in FF 1.5, or do I get to tell my user his browser is outdated and he's SOL?

Edit 2: I also have a FF 2.0 user telling me it's doing the same thing for him.

That's odd. Do you have any plugins installed which affect navbar functionality?

I have iTrader, vB Banner Rotator (by frapegliko), and your style installed. That's it as far as mods go. I don't believe any of those should affect the navbar. vB 3.6.4

In fact, users are telling me that with this as my board's default style, there is no way to log in when the page is viewed in Firefox.... see below:

I have been trying to log onto the board for several days, and it shows the top banner, and then says Archives.

It does not show me anyplace to log in, or view the forum. I thought the board was down, but just now I tried opening the site in IE, and it works.

Can the page just not be viewed in Firefox?

This is what I see when I go to this page in Firefox.

(after one of the other users suggested that he change to the standard vB style to log in):

Is this the banner rotator you have installed? http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=129418

If so, did you add the $GLOBALS[bannerads] bit to the style's header or footer? If not, that might be the cause.

I installed this yesterday and it is great. The only thing I have noticed is that smilies have a white halo around them because of the dark background color. Any idea on a work around for that? Is there a smilie set for dark colors with a transparent background instead of white?

SmashinYoungMan
25 Jan 2007, 16:44
I didn't include any smilies because most folks use smilies of their own choosing anyway. There are tons of free smilies to be found on the web, though, as well as free smiley sets here.

If so, did you add the $GLOBALS[bannerads] bit to the style's header or footer? If not, that might be the cause.Yup, I added $GLOBALS[bannerads] in place of the "sample ad" banner that comes with the style.

I think this was my screw-up. When I first installed the template, I wanted to rem-out the "Link 1 - Link 2 - Link 3 - Link 4" stuff, since I didn't have any links to throw in at that time.

See code below. I added the tag in green, but forgot the tag in red. It worked correctly in IE and I didn't give it a second thought at the time. That'll teach me to install mods at 2am. :o


<!-- LINKS -->
<!-- REM OUT JEM 01/13/07
<a href="/">Link1</a> - <a href="/">Link2</a> - <a href="/">Link3</a> - <a href="/">Link4</a>
-->
<!-- /LINKS -->


That is the only difference I can think of between the default style and this one. The default style also has the $GLOBALS[bannerads] on it, but the default style works correctly.

I am betting MSIE would read the (incorrectly modded) HTML differently than FF. FF appears to be reading it as "remark tag is still open". That would certainly mess with the navbar.

Thanks for the help, I will let you know if that code change (adding the close-remark tag) doesn't fix the problem. I'm betting it will fix it.

EDITED TO ADD: Confirmed with a FF 1.5 user. The fix worked. Yay! :)

Thanks for the help - and for the awesome looking style.

In this bit of code in the header template:

<a name="top"></a>
<table width="951" height="134" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" align="center">
<tr>
<td rowspan="2" width="399" height="134" align="center" style="background: url($stylevar[imgdir_misc]/header_1.jpg);"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php$session[sessionurl_q]">Your Logo</a></td>
<td width="37" height="134" rowspan="2" style="background: url($stylevar[imgdir_misc]/header_2.jpg);"></td>
<td width="484" height="111" align="center" style="background: url($stylevar[imgdir_misc]/header_3.jpg);">

Replace the text "Your Logo" with the link to the image you want to use. Alternately, you can follow the instructions in this post (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1157015&postcount=7).

looks nice thanks but i notice now i have a white box with a X inside of it I guess this is called buttons search, quick links. How can i currect this
Did you upload the "buttons" folder in the "blackandblue" directory? If so, double-check to make sure you uploaded it to the proper location per the installation instructions.

Thank you, this is one of the best looking skins I've seen in a long time. Everything went smooth, but I am having minor problems when the postbit is set to legacy...the blue borders stopped wrapping after the first post. Is there a fix for this? Thank you, and keep up the excellent work.

I got most of this working, I uploaded everything according to the instructions, however I am not getting the title images (header_1.jpg, etc..) to display. I applied the changes you have listed above and I understand how to get the logo in there, but any idea why the header images are not showing up?

Hello, all.

Sorry for the delay in replying, but there have been health problems in my family that have kept me away from design work and the vB community.

This skin requires no updating to be 3.6.5 compatible, so you can safely upgrade from 3.6.4 without issue or needing to update any templates if you already have it installed. I updated the zip file with a new xml so folks installing this for the first time on a 3.6.5 forum won't have to fool with clicking "Ignore Style Version".

As a catch-all answer to creating different width templates, that isn't something I can do just now. Due to being out of action for an extended period, I need to dedicate my time in the following days and weeks to paid work. If you have a paid job you're interested in having me take on, just PM me.

Once I get caught up, I'll try and do a better job of keeping this particular skin updated and taking on requests as time allows.

I have the Mk Portal CMS system that integrates with Vbulletin. Would I be allowed to use this style for the Mk Portal CMS part of my site because it lets you use the forum skin for the portal section of the site (I would still have any copyrights you may have on the portal section of my site)?

I am keeping this for others if they want to do something like that, but I am no longer using a CMS for my site. I am only using Vbulletin.

Any template modifications you've done will need to be redone, yes. Plugins that don't require any template modifications will be fine.

I'll try and get this updated for 3.6.7 within the next day or two. Right now, I'm trying to get my clients' sites updated, as well as my own forum.

After my upgrade, I noticed that the image navbits_finallink.gif was a red X. I did some research and noticed that the navbar template was changed in the new version to look for an image called navbits_finallink_ltr.gif. Small change but it's enough to break the image. Instead of modifing the template I just renamed the old image to navbits_finallink_ltr.gif.

SmashinYoungMan, you may want to fix this in your navbar template for future downloaders.

First, let me say... Awesome style... Me like...

I have a question that involves vBulletin, PhotoPost and your template... Well, all templates for that matter... I have vBulletin 3.6.7 and PhotoPost 5.62. I went through all the steps to integrate PhotoPost within vBulletin and so far, so good. I then stepped through installing your style as per the directions... All is well in Shreddedville except for a couple of things...

The title image which is defined in vBulletin as 'images/shredded_logo/SHREDDEDonline3.gif' shows as a red 'X' (basically, image not found) when over in the integrated PhotoPost. Obviously, there is a problem with the pathing because the two entities reside in different subs. /forum/ and /photopost/ under the domain.

The title image directions say 'relative path under forum' which, to me, makes it unable to be found when over in the gallery. As I type this, I realize, this is not really an issue with the style... But, if you may have any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,
Scotty

I love everything about it, & I also run th Admin CP. My problem is a minor one. With the style installed, I lose my link to my Arcade in my Navbar. If I uninstall the style, it pops right back in the navbar again. That, plus the fact that link doesn't disappear if I use any of my other styles, hints to me tha coud be the problem

If I understand correctly to get the full width, I need to use the fluid style, I believe I am using the fixed one at the moment, it's bee a while, since I installed this theme, and we love it, its used as our default, but really do want to get it full width.

if I may I will post the url to the site, if your not registered it's OK it will still show you the narrow of the theme

www.ftaview.com

do I just upload the fluid zipped file, upload to the server and import the new xml file

I really don't want to mess up the board, so I will wait for some clarification to this

we are a young board and not a lot of experience in making changes, with out messing up,,,LOL

thanks for a great theme, and the anticipated help on this matter.

in the attached screen shot you will notice it's not full width, but the grey on either side

You can change the logo by editing the "Title Image" field in the Style Manager.

I don't know that I'll have time to make different colored versions of this in the near future. I desperately need to make up lost work time. Perhaps someone else can give you a hand with this.

Anyhoo, I'll try and get this updated for 3.6.8 sometime tomorrow. I upgraded and updated Eyedolize today, so the template updates I need to make are fresh in my mind.

In the header template, the code for the links is placed between the <!-- LINKS --><!-- /LINKS --> comment.

You mean the text field itself? If so, this can be done by modifying the CSS for the "Input Fields" section in the Style Manager. You would also want to change the CSS for the "WYSIWYG Editor" section just above it to match.

Ah, okay. You mean the surrounding panel, which contains the various controls, I believe. You can change this at the bottom of the Style Manager in the "Text Editor Control Styles" field. If you go too dark with it, however, you'll need to update the editor graphics so they'll be legible against a dark background, and to eliminate the jaggies that will inevitably appear.

Very nice styles, using both of them for my site.

How do you remove the 4 links completely, I've tried removing the code but this messes up the graphics.

I'm also having a problem when I create a new thread, return to the homepage and it does not display until I hit refresh (IE and Firefox). I've tried this with the default vb style and don't experience the same problem.

Thanks,

Hi Mark,

Just open up your style manager and comment out the html in the 'LINKS' section located in the header section. Easy.

A question of my own now.

I'm having the same problem I noticed others were having with the 'Reload this page' broken img link next to the nav bar. The error goes away when I load the default template which makes me think its something missing in this template. Correct? I aimlessly tried copying the navbits_finallink_ltr.gif to the misc folder for this template but to no avail. Any ideas?

Hello All,
I installed this style recently and it was PERFECT for the theme of my site! Good job designing this! I intend to contribute once the site starts to make a little $$. :)

I just changed my image in the right side header and now I have a problem in the background. The "bars" between each banner are no longer lined up. All that I did was change my image from one with sharp corners to the one that has rounded corners as you can see in the link below. Now the background is screwed up. I don't know if I inadvertently moved something or what? :confused:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
