Desert Sand is a light tan colored theme designed to be easy on the eyes. I couldn't find another tan colored theme, so I made one myself. I've attached some screenshots, but the theme would be better appreciated by viewing it here ...

DEMO HERE (http://www.the-armory.net/forum/?styleid=67)

(Please be sure to mark INSTALLED if you use this style)

Added - For those of you using the [AJAX] Post Thank You Hack (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=165673), I've added a "Thanks" button. Thanks to "jaycob" for your suggestion.

Lastly, you may want to also check out some of my other skins...

Desert Green (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=178457)

Version History:
version 1.1 - Added additional colored default images to better blend with color scheme.
version 1.2 - Cleaned up smiles and posticon images and added "Replacement Variables" to point to the images\styles\desert_sand\ directory.
version 1.3 - Updated to be v3.7 RC4 compliant. Note: No need to update if you already updated using the v3.7 RC4 update. This is for new installs only.
version 1.4 - Updated to v3.7 "Gold". Colored the im_skype.gif to match the color scheme. Corrected the "Replacement Variables" "...posticons/" path to read "...icons/" instead.
version 1.5 - Updated to Vbulletin version 3.7.2 (PL1)

gator you did a very nice job here! GOOD coloring of the default vB images to match the style. If you extended that custom work to the default images in the WGO box, i.e. stats.gif and whos_online.gif , I'd give this 5 stars. ;)

Keep up the good work! :)

Yes, I'm a novice, so I apologize about that. I'll use the edit button next time to add minor items like graphics :D

I had a really interesting problem with this hack. It produced this with the smilies:

http://www.myforums.com/images/styles/desert_sand/smilies/mad.gif

Instead up the smilies going into the "images/smilies" categories, it put them into the "images/styles/desert_sand/smiles" category. I tried deleting the smilies file within the uploaded folder because I tough it would revert it but that didn't happen. The images are still linking to this styles folder.

I've never ever seen that happen before. How do I fix it?

I've never ever seen that happen before. How do I fix it?They are going to the correct path. Did you read the "readme" file that came with the skin? If you don't have a folder named ""images/styles/desert_sand/smiles", then you must create one. The images have been aliased to work with with color; hence, this is why they are located in a different folder. If you have anymore problems, please let me know. :up:

Uh, I have smilies for my other skins and the entire board that read from the "images/smilies" category. All of my other skins do this. In order for me to do that, then I'd have to copy more than 500 smilies from the main smilies category to the one you created. No disrespect but it doesn't make sense for me to have two entire sets of smilie files with the same smilies.

Ok then, if you want them to read from the same directory, then you will need to remove the "Replacement Varible" at the bottom of the Style Manager. Once deleted, the smilies will read from the default "images/smiles" directory.

Goto your Admin Panel > Style Manager > All Style Options "Go" > Select your style.

Let me know of you have a hard time finding it. :)
