Thanks:) Fixed!
I did not realize the id number changed after I reinstalled the style. I made a few adjustments to the fonts colors.

thanks again

I like the background and some of the icons but the green buttons don't go with the style at all...

Thanks for the feedback... I have a few more in the early development stages that should be a little more soothing and color coordinated.

Anyways, cmedic101 I can't seem to get the lightening to appear when I add my own logo to it. How does one do that? TIA.

I'm so confused!!

the logo is a .gif and the lettering will need to be placed with in the frames. Create your lettering design on frame one then if it does not transfer to the additional frames just cut and paste to each frame. I use Adobe Fireworks for all my graphics.

if you have any more questions or need help feel free to PM me.

I kind of like the skin. Just needs a few things extra and it should be fine.

Thanks Warden-b:)

I have a newer version coming in a day or two... It has cleaner buttons, background image has been touched up and enhanced and the font colors have been blended a little better.

thanks for your support

That is if I have it as a child style of another style it won't inherit the properties of the parent style. BTW this is only in IE. It works in Firefox. Is this a bug? TIA.

ETA:

It works now.

I'm using IE... and have not seen any issues. also the syle was created with the default templates from 3.72, What templates are you trying to revert?

If you follow the installation instructions listed above your install should go pretty smooth.

after the installation you must change the following line in the header template and Stylevars.

images/storm/misc/stormlogo.gif to images/styles/sosumi/misc/head_left.jpg Then refresh the page and your banner should be there.

enjoy
