Dark Style

Notes
Although the screenshots say 3.5.x this IS a 3.6.x skin, just cba to re-take them :)
The zip includes PSD's for the header and statusicons.
You free to use this on your forums and the rest of your site as long as you retain the copyright notice at the bottom, your getting a free skin I don't think its to much to ask :)

Installation

Unzip “fromBasics_Dark” and upload the files in the upload folder to the correct places.
Log into your Admin control panel.
In 'Styles & Templates' Go to 'Styles & Templates' and Import Style XML File.


Enjoy!

And please don't forget to click Install!

For information on removing the copyright notice contact me via PM.
Other wise you may NOT remove it

Thanks.

I like the simplicity and lack of images, its great for Dial up or people who want low bandwidth and it still looks nice :)

newbie question sorry, where do i put the PSD files and Forum files. i know i should know this sorry again...

Nutz
25 May 2007, 13:36
np random we were all newbie's once :P

The PSD files don't need to be uploaded only the files in the 'upload' folder so the 'fB_dark' folder should end up here: "www.yousite.com/forum/fB_dark/'. The PSD files are only used for editing the images such as the header to change the text to your site name :)

Oh and don't forget to click install :)

Thanks,
Mat

thank you Mat! check it though, i have buttons on my navbar that dont show up when i switch to this style. like for instance i run ImageHost and a chat program and those options do not show up. is there a way to fix that an another newbie question since you handled the other withthout laughing. how do i change it from "yoursite.com" at the top of the site to "mysite.com"

Editing the header image (to change the text from 'YourSite' to 'MySite' requires a PSD editor to alter the ‘header.psd’ file (Photoshop, GIMP (http://www.gimp.org/) or another type of PSD editor), you would also need the font I used when making this, way back when… which I have now lost :P.

If you’re not to comfortable editing the PSD yourself I'll be happy to quickly change the text when I get home for you :)

As for the navbar buttons, if I remember correctly when you install those modifications 'ImageHost' and the chat program they would have required you make alterations to the 'navbar' template that would have added the links, so I would go back though them check the instructions and see if they did, if they did then simply re-apply them to this style :)

Thanks,
Mat

Hi Nutz,

Got around to installing your skin :)

One of my members pointed out that the member list page looks very, well messy when members don't have an avatar to brake up the page.

Your members have big avatars ;) um.. the only thing I can think of is disabling showing the avatars on the member list. Other than that its acting like it should =/

Thanks,

Hi, thank you very much for your work, I would like to install 3.6.7 and I've been waiting for this skin. I have customized my skin, if I install this new one I'll lost all my customization?

Many thanks,

matteo

Depends how many modifications you made and where, as long as it doesn’t clash with any of the few mods made to this skin ( namely the header and footer ) you might get away with setting this as a child to your modified skin, so that it would inherit the changes made to that one :)

Thanks,
Mat

I'm still running this skin, but I see now that it's last update on the files was in fabruary 2006, so it might be about time i update them. Starting to get quite a few out-of.date custom templates now.

Is this fully compatible with 3.8?

I seriously love this theme though, so thank you som much for still supporting and updating this. Best skin I eveer used. So clean and simple yet great. Keep up!

Would like to ask this same question as well.. I love this theme and its the only reason why I cant upgrade to 3.8 since I have no idea if the theme will be broken once I upgrade :(

Hope this gets updated. Im willing to donate if needed, I love the simplicity of this skin ;)
