** Instructions **
Open your ftp client to your server. Go to your forum's images folder, open it, and create a styles folder.
Next, upload the "ChristmasSpirit" folder via FTP to your server, into your forum's styles folder, so that your image path is images/styles/ChristmasSpirit/buttons, for example.
After you've uploaded the folder, open your admin control panel on your forum, and import the xml file, by going to Styles & Templates > Download / Upload styles > Import Style XML File.
Click on the Browse button, locate the christmas-spirit-style.xml file, and double-click it so it loads in that box, then hit the Import button.
Next, open the Upload to Forum Root folder and upload the following 3 images into your forum root directory: bleft_066cs.gif, bmid_066cs.gif, and bright_066cs.gifAgain make sure that these 3 files are uploaded to your forum root folder (same place where you have your vBulletin installed).

There is a blank header, in GIF format, in the "Blanks" folder. No PSD's are available.

Enjoy!

Yes, that happened to me at first. :erm:
You need to make sure that the uploaded folder "Christmas Spirit" has no space in it.
Rename it to "ChristmasSpirit" (no space).

No need to rename anything, because you don't upload the Christmas Spirit folder at all. You're supposed to upload the ChristmasSpirit folder that is inside.

I have installed this Christmas style, and it's great.

I've adjusted the header template as follows to allow for some more items on the header, but have a small problem (see the attachment), where we almost need a 'carriage return' after the links.

I'm sure this must be relatively easy to do, but for the life of me, I can't work out how to do it. Is anyone able to help me?

It looks like you have way to many items on that navbar. It is not designed to hold that many items. I would recommend doing a drop down menu like the one that is used for Quick Links.

I like this very much an may well use it this Christmas. I'd just like to know how to edit the blocks on the left, where there are links, and the box that says "text goes here"?

You'll find that in the FORUMHOME template.
