View Full Version : CA Morpheus

Style name: CA Morpheus
Style version: 1.0.1
vBulletin version: 3.6.7

Style includes 5 color schemes:
Demo (default): demo (http://www.stsoftware.biz/forum/index.php?styleid=22) (ca_morpheus.zip)
Demo (blue): demo (http://www.stsoftware.biz/forum/index.php?styleid=24) (ca_morpheus_blue.zip)
Demo (gray): demo (http://www.stsoftware.biz/forum/index.php?styleid=25) (ca_morpheus_gray.zip)
Demo (green): demo (http://www.stsoftware.biz/forum/index.php?styleid=26) (ca_morpheus_green.zip)
Demo (purple): demo (http://www.stsoftware.biz/forum/index.php?styleid=27) (ca_morpheus_purple.zip)

Notes:
- This is a port of my old phpBB style to vBulletin. You can find phpBB version on phpBBStyles.com (http://www.phpbbstyles.com).
- Demo forum shows only postbit_legacy, but usual postbit is also included in template and screenshot is available in attachment.
- Almost every template was modified to include rounded headers, not only index. So xml files are rather large.
- PSD files are in attachment.
- If you want some additional color scheme(s) please pm me (note: custom work is not free).

Installation:
Unpack zip file, upload contents of directory "upload" to your forum including subdirectories. Use style.xml to install template.


Screenshots and zip files are in attachment.

Because of 10 attachments limit, only few screenshots are attached. See demo links instead.

Every color from the original phpBB2 theme except Purple, the one that I need :)

It's ok though, I'll install Green and replace the colors and images from the phpBB version.

Thanks for doing this, you've seriously saved me days of work!!

I'll convert purple one too. Didn't think anyone wanted it

I've already started changing it over to purple, but it's probably easier if I leave it up to you. You're the expert :)

I have a friend who has been on phpBB2 for a long time. I switched to vB nearly a year ago, got sick of having to reapply all the modifications I installed every time phpBB released an updated version. Having the same problems with my friend's forum, but part of the deal is that if I pay for the license and get it looking nearly identical to the phpBB forum (using Morpheus Purple theme), then I'll be able to convert the forum across to vB. It's going to save me a LOT of maintenance time, vB takes only a few minutes to upgrade, phpBB takes hours!

You have no idea how much I appreciate this!

Is this the same purple as in your phpBB2 theme? This one seems to have a much more blue tint to it.

Its the same purple as in MorpheusX Purple phpBB style, not Morpheus Purple style.

Quick question: new posts show up in orange and I can't figure out how to change the color. Any idea?

I'm trying the blue one. Looks great! Very nicely done, CA.

PSD files are added to first post.

Quick question: new posts show up in orange and I can't figure out how to change the color. Any idea?
Edit class "row-new" in "extra" css template. This is the code you need to edit in default color scheme:td.row-new a, td.row-new a:visited { color: #FF7E00; }
td.row-new a:hover, td.row-new a:active { color: #FF7E00; }

I did some customization to this to make it look like "Morpheus Purple style".

Original Morpheus Purple style phpBB2 forum:
http://bbhosts.net/files/nih_phpbb2.jpg

Modified CA Morpheus Purple style vBulletin forum:
http://bbhosts.net/files/nih_finished.jpg

Now it's a perfect blend of the two themes which everyone loves so far!
I've changed the colors of normal/visited/hover/new links, the orange wasn't very popular.
I've got them as:
Regular Thread Link: Purple
Visited Thread Link: Dark Purple
Hover: Orange with Underline
New Post: Bold Purple

Thanks once again for doing this, I didn't even need the PSD files in the end, I just modified the defaults slightly in Fireworks.
Also "ported" across the classic style for PM notifications, now it shows up as a box in the middle:
http://bbhosts.net/files/nih/pm2.png

And modified the postbit to vertically align signatures at the bottom of posts instead of directly underneath the message, but that could apply to any template.

I can't thank you enough for releasing this!

Installed and love the style.

One question: how do I set the column widths to be identical in all categories on the main forum page? I see the same "uneven" look on your screenshots that I am seeing on my forum. I'm pretty much a novice, so take it easy on me if you can. Thanks!

CyberAlien
20 Feb 2007, 09:13
In template forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost set width to columns in this code:<tbody>
<tr align="center">
<td class="thead">&nbsp;</td>
<td class="thead" width="100%" align="$stylevar[left]" nowrap="nowrap">$vbphrase[forum]</td>
<td class="thead" width="175" nowrap="nowrap">$vbphrase[last_post]</td>
<td class="thead" nowrap="nowrap">$vbphrase[threads]</td>
<td class="thead" nowrap="nowrap">$vbphrase[posts]</td>
<if condition="$vboptions['showmoderatorcolumn']">
<td class="thead" nowrap="nowrap">$vbphrase[moderator]</td>
</if>
</tr>
</tbody>

Hovewer it might not work anyway because columns will expand because of different content in those columns.

nhlnut
20 Feb 2007, 15:33
Thanks...I'll play with that to see if I can get my desired look.

Is there no setting that will prevent the content from expanding the column widths?

**EDIT**
Nevermind...got it. Thanks again

CyberAlien
20 Feb 2007, 15:35
Nope. Browsers will adjust columns as needed to fit all content if something doesn't fit in width set for a column.

Hi
I have installed this, but it isn't working right. It seems to miss the graphics out on the top category.

View here http://www.southcoastpetsupplies.co.uk/forum/index.php

Notice the top one that says "Your Pets" that it hasn't got the graphics.

Also how do i get the orange bits to show, as that was the reason i installed it for. But they aren't showing anywhere.

Any help please.

Cheers Richard

That corner is a part of logo image.
Orange topic links are used only for forums with new posts.

Spiceworld
17 Mar 2007, 01:33
Hi

Thanks for the reply.

I can live with the corner missing off the image, as for the Orange i'll try and change that myself.

The bit i am really wanting to get fixed is the bit like i say where it says "Your Pets", i take it is suppose to show like the "General Chat" bit and have the graphics around it.

Anyone else solve this?

Cheers Richard

Don't worry about orange - in a few weeks, when I'll finish project I'm working on, you'll be able to set as much orange (or any other color) as you want. ;)

Good Skins ~~~~~~~

verrin
03 Apr 2007, 06:00
I upload this skin to my forums root and in images and I get faded colors in vb3.6.5. The navbar is light grey, I don't have the nice round edges, it's square looking and a lot of images look like they are missing.

CyberAlien
03 Apr 2007, 06:48
Then you ether uploaded images to wrong directory, or somehow managed to not install xml file (one person already managed to mess up xml file installation, so it is possible).

Category might be square looking if you use category description so title and description would fit in header. Remove description and it will be rounded.

Dont ask why or how, but it makes it feel like the forum im using is phpBB not vBulletin, i think its because it looks soft and most phpBB skins are soft :)

CyberAlien
03 Apr 2007, 09:01
That's probably because this style is a port of my old phpBB style :)

Just tried to install this after upgrading to vBulletin 3.6.6, but had no luck. Will you be updating this style?

Yes, it will be updated. It just takes time because there are about 50 template files to update.
