vBStyles Demo is a for that you can let your members, guests or clients view your styles before they download or purchase your vBulletin Styles.

Version 1 Beta

We would like to announce our new plugin, " Style Chooser Demo". Now its pretty much about finding the bugs and getting them out of the code.

As this is not yet the official release, please use it for test purposes - do not use on a live site unless you feel really confident.


To install, download the file and unpack it on your hard drive.
Next goto your admincp / Plugins & Products
Choose Download / Upload Plugins
Browse your hard drive for the .xml file and upload
Next, open up the style you want to use, preferably choose the Default Style on your demo site and goto common templates
In the header find <!-- logo -->
Above that, past $includedphp and click save.
Now, upload the vbstyles.php in your root folder or where ever you have your demo forums.
Open your vbstyles.php file and find line 9 require_once('../Connections/styleconfig.php'); and edit the styleconfig.php to your server variables., save and test it!If you have any questions, bugs or you just plain dont understand on what to do, please head to our support area and we should assist you there.

Thank you for trying our custom plugin and please help our community grow so we can bring new ideas to life!

Not working. I think you forgot to add mysql querry in the database. I took this error when ı install

Table 'vb.vbdemo_style' doesn't exist

And in vbstyles.php I saw these codes;

mysql_select_db($database_panelconfig, $panelconfig);
$query_vbStyleChooser = "SELECT styleid, title, displayorder FROM vbdemo_style ORDER BY title DESC";
$vbStyleChooser = mysql_query($query_vbStyleChooser, $panelconfig) or die(mysql_error());
$row_vbStyleChooser = mysql_fetch_assoc($vbStyleChooser);
$totalRows_vbStyleChooser = mysql_num_rows($vbStyleChooser);

But there was no table created like above.

is this not the same thing as modifying your header to have the style chooser at the top of you site and then adding a small bit of text saying how many styles there are?
Or am i missing something cause that seems like alot to do just to have your style chooser at the top when all it takes is a small copy and paste from the footer to the header.
just wondering

On the contrary, you are right and wrong. 1...as simple as you may try to make this seem like thats all you have to do, it isnt. You can control it with an on or off switch as well as user groups. So yes it has permissions to do this and do that. It also has a switch incase you want to sell the style, itll show the price with a link to paypal sandbox. There for, it is not the same and is not even a vBulletin script, its totally custom which runs off of vBulletin. I used to use this when I coded with XMB Group. :) However, I will not release this just yet until I get other things done soon. I dont even have any staff, so I have to do all the bug reports to myself and so on. No telling when I will release this, so with alittle support, I will asap.
