I'm pretty sure Its due to conflicting mods of some sort. If you allowed me a admin account on your board I would happily take a look at it.

Actually from look at your source code you seem to have added links in the header.

<td id="triad" class="vbmenu_control"><a href="triad_main.php">vBTripleTriad</a></td>
<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="profile.php?do=invitation">Invite Your Friends</a></td>

There is no table for the navigation it's actually a list.. so you need to replace that code with this code

<li id="triad"><a href="triad_main.php">vBTripleTriad</a></li>
<li><a href="profile.php?do=invitation">Invite Your Friends</a></li>

can you re route the textedit.js file to somewhere else instead of overwritting the default one?

EDIT: I like it but I'm having an issue with links in my header.

ALSO: It's a good theme, but a lot of bugs


Smilies are trying to pull from images/blue_streak/icons/icon13.png
If images are too large in PMs it stretches the box instead of the page
Reply and Forward images are unchanged

1. The javascript file must be overwritten, that is the only way to style those specific parts of the editor. I suppose you could do the edits yourself but If you don't feel confident editing code then I wouldn't.
2. Whats the issue with links in your header? Let me know more about the problem so I can help you.
3. All smilies are pulling from that directory? I don't have a live board setup right now but If you could show me your board then I could look into fixing it.
4. Its a fixed width skin, if an image that is too large is posted the page will not stretch, I suggest a image resizer mod to take care of this.
5. Sorry about the default images, Will have to create those soon as I get some time.

Thanks for using the style and hopefully we can get your problems sorted out.

I just feel as though a style should be finished when you post it. So yea, please do fix the smilie issue.

Also a fluid version would be wonderful.

Sorry I have been extremely busy as of late. I will be recoding the navigation, fixing smilie issue, and updating any default buttons that were missed. I will also look into making a fluid version of the skin.

To TheInsaneManiac I have not been able to replicate your smilie issue and no one else has reported such a problem. Everything works fine on my devboard. If you continue to have this issue contact me directly.

Not sure how it looks incomplete. Also not sure what's wrong with the navbar menu.

To each their own I guess. :confused:
