In what sense does it not work? If you mean you don't see the images then be sure you've uploaded the folders to the correct place, you'll need to follow the second instructions "Where FORUM ROOT is not ROOT directory". Alternatively, if you know where you have uploaded all the images to then you can go to ADMIN CP > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Black and Blue > Stylevars > Image Paths and point them to where you've uploaded the folder using the full path, eg. http://www.yoursite.com/forum/black-blue/statusicon.

OK, where have you uploaded the "black-blue" folder in the zip file to? If you give me the complete address (eg. www.yoursite.com/forum/black-blue) then I'll make another product file that should fix it for you.

There are only two folders to upload if your forum is not your site's root forum, such has a lot of people have with vB Advanced. This is because the image directories are relative paths, so if you're viewing you site at www.xyz.com, images will be www.xyz.com/black-blue, but if you're visiting from your forum at www.xyz.com/forum then images will be www.xyz.com/forum/black-blue. That'll happen with any style that has custom images such as button or reputation.

If none of that means anything to you don't worry. If you download the zip file again, upload the "Black-Blue" (Black & Blue Style/Upload/Black-Blue) folder to anywhere on your site, and then give me the full address as to where you have uploaded it I'll create a product file that will work specifically for your site.

face it dude it does not work,
whether you upload to "forum folder root", "public html root" or
"yoursite/root" they all act as the root to your soft ware.
when you say: Upload the "Black-Blue" folder to your FORUM ROOT directory.
what i have wrote above is where you would upload the image folder "Black-Blue" to.
this day an age you should not have to go in to edit shi.t to make a style work.
now every other bloody style on this forum vb-org either says:
upload image folder to forum root - forum root/images - forum root/styles - forum root/images/styles.
no one seems to have any problems do they?

anyone else get this style installed without editing the Image Paths, which i have all ready tryed.

I'm sorry, but it does work. I have installed it on my board fine, and also done a fresh install on a test board, without editing anything contained within the zip file. It is only because you could not get it to work that I asked you for the full address as to where you uploaded the folder, so I could check to see that it was the right location.

If your forums are at www.yoursite.com then black-blue should be uploaded to www.yoursite.com/black-blue. If your forums are at www.yoursite.com/forum, then then black-blue should be uploaded to www.yoursite.com/forum/black-blue.

ok, hears where you ++++ed up ok!

you have it that the "Image Paths" all say - black-blue/buttons, black-blue/statusicon etc:
now when i change to caps eg: Black-Blue/buttons - Black-Blue/statusicon
the style works.
now it all comes down to the caps ha? maybe change your folder name to black-blue (no caps)
and case closed.

edit...also change the black-blue/misc/Title.png to title.png (no Caps)

now everything works great :)

Mystery solved! Case sensitivity isn't a problem on my server, so that's why I wasn't aware of such a problem. I've repackage the zip with the appropriate cases to eliminate any such problem for other users. Thanks for the info.

Glad that you finally got it to work :).
