Fall is here, and Thanksgiving (my second favorite holiday) is right around the corner.

'Give Thanks' features -
Many original images
a Thanks button for those who use the Post Thanks mod
Separated forum categories

Installation Instructions
Download the zip file to your computer and extract it (I put it on my desktop, it's easier to remember where I put it!).
Open your ftp client to your server. Go to your forum's images folder, open it, and create a styles folder.
Next, upload the thanks folder via FTP to your server, into the styles folder, so that your image path is images/styles/thanks/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 thanks-style.xml, and double-click it so it loads in that box, then hit the Import button.
The zip file contains a 'blanks' folder where you'll find a blank header and buttons, all in PNG format, for easy editing. No PSD's are available.

Don't forget to click "mark as installed" for support!

If you have any questions, just holler.

Enjoy! https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/

formula_z is correct, alax, but it's hard to explain this.

If you'd like for me to take a look, I'd need admin access to your forum.

Actually, you have 6 styles installed, and all but 2 of them have a display problem.
Try uninstalling the xml file, and import it again.

I need Arabization buttonsThat's something that you will have to do yourself, or have someone else do for you. A blank button is in the Blanks folder.



still i am installing two theme only , still i am facing same problem.......PM me your admin login and I'll try to find the problem. No guarantees, since you're having the same issue with others' styles as well.

I can't get it to work on 3.7.1

Ohiosweetheart
25 Oct 2008, 15:21
It's designed for 3.7.3. But, I'd need details to try and help.

Ohiosweetheart
25 Oct 2008, 15:22
There is no solution ............. what happen admin & Mod ??????????There's no solution because I can't figure out what is wrong. You have issues with styles other than mine, as well. I have no idea what to do because I don't know what the problem is.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

In your AdminCP >> Forums & Moderators >> Forums Manager you can edit your forums.

Your problem is that you have these forums at the top level (no parent) of your forums so edit your forums and select a "Parent Forum" for each one. Simply create a parent forum and set that partent as a "CATEGORY" by setting "Act as Forum" to NO!

Some styles require this to look correct and it will make life easier for you if you try to establish special permissions for parts of your site. Now, I didn't reconfigure my site to verify this is your issue but it looks like that is your problem to me too!

You have to set up your forum with categories and forums for most styles to work right.

To do this -
login to your admin cp
scroll down to Forums & Moderators > click on Forum Manager
If you already have forums set up, You'll need to create a category, such as Community Forum or General Chat, or whatever you want. When you get to Act As Forum, select NO. This makes it a category.
To move forums to that category, Make sure you select the name of that category where it says "Parent Forum".
Save
To add a new category, under Forums & Moderators in the left column, click on Add New Forums.That's it.

ok, you still have to go through each of the forums and make that category a parent forum of each forum.

I'm looking at the screenshot. I've never seen that problem before, so I have no clue what the cause would be. If you want to pm me with admin access to your admin control panel, I'll take a look and see if I can figure it out.

you completely misunderstood what I said. Most of your forums are marked as forums, with no parent category. Styles will not display correctly like this. Plus you didn't have the subforums set up to display correctly. I fixed that setting. I also fixed a category and changed settings on 3 forums so that they display properly in that category. You'll have to take it from there yourself.

You have to have a category, then group forums into the category. I really don't know how to explain this any clearer, as I'm not good at explaining things anyway lol.

BTW - you also don't have the images uploaded correctly. which is why they're not showing.

Excellent theme, only one problem in my opinion:
The header image is not clickable to bring you back to the forum home. Easily fixed:
In the header template, look for

<td align="center" valign="top" width="698"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/header_sample.png" width="698" border="0" alt="logo"/></td>

and change to:

<td align="center" valign="top" width="698"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php$session[sessionurl_q]"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/header_sample.png" width="698" border="0" alt="logo"/></a></td>


Like I said, a very simple fix. I don't plan on changing the header image at all, so this works perfect for me. Thank you so much for the time spent doing this!

Ohiosweetheart
16 Nov 2008, 16:54
Thanks for the tip, I'm glad you like the design. I purposely don't link the header back to the forum, because some people don't like it. I don't, personally.

Also, in that example you have the header aligned center. It should be aligned left in this style ;)

Hrrm, showed up as left to me both ways, not sure why it doesn't center properly, but you're right that center should be left.

I'm currently running VBulletin 3.74 and this skin won't work. Is there a way to change something to make it work?

Works fine with 3.7.4. Define "does not work". Some sort of an example would help ;)
I know it works with 3.7.4 because I'm running it there myself, right now.
