My newest skin, Shine, uses black and gold, on off-white, for a clean, sleek, professional look.

This style features, 95% original images and a built-in left side column.
I've included a Read Me page in the download, with ALOT of information in it, so please read it!

LIVE DEMO (http://www.themesbydesign.net/forums/index.php?styleid=72)


Installation Instructions -

Download the attached Zip file, and unzip to your computer.
Open the shine folder. There you'll find the xml file, a folder of blank images and another shine folder.
Upload that shine folder into your forum/images directory, so that your path is images/shine
Import the xml file by going to your ACP --> styles and templates --> download/upload styles --> browse --> select the xml file where you have it saved on your computer --> import-- The side column is very easy to edit. Open the FORUMHOME template for this style and find:

The table in blue is your login information. Don't mess with that unless you really know what you're doing!

The table in red is my AuctionAds code (the money-maker!). I put my code in there as a place-marker for you. If you want your own code, instructions for signing up with AA are below. If you want to remove it, remove the code ONLY, not the table!

The table in purple is a blank table. Just give it a name where it says "block name", and put your content where you see the word "Content". https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/

If you want to add more blocks, just copy and paste that last blank box -

<table cellpadding="8" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100%" align="center" style="border: 1px solid #000000;">
<thead>
<tr>
<td class="tcat" colspan="2">Block Name</td>
</tr>
</thead>
</table>
<table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center" style="border-top: 0px;">
<tr>
<td class="alt1">
<div class="smallfont">
Content
</div>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
Be sure to add a <br /> between each table so that there's a space between your blocks.

** Special thanks to miner @ minerskinz.com for his generous help with this skin.

NOTE!!
IF you have the category separator hack installed on your forum, this skin will not work, as it has built-in category separators, and that hack throws it completely out of whack.

Yes, it is similar to Blaze. However, miner at www.minerskinz.com (http://www.minerskinz.com) assisted me with the code for this skin. Thanks for the compliment.
