Tangoed 4.0.0 RC2

This is my first vBulletin skin so if there are any problems let me know and I'll try to correct them.

I've spent a lot of time on this skin over the past 2 days so please be nice. If you don't like the skin fair enough, but could we just have constructive comments please.

I'll support this skin to the best of my abilities.

Update: I've changed the header on this as the solid Orange was a bit too loud, I've now added a gradient to tone it down as shown below.

If you've already installed this skin and want to update just upload the gradient into your root/images/gradients and overwrite with the new XML.

Blog - https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2009/12/3.jpg

CMS - https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2009/12/66.jpg

Forum - https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2009/12/3.jpg

Install:

1. Upload the "images" folder to your forum root and overwrite.
2. Go to your Admin CP>Styles & Templates>Download / Upload Styles and browse your PC for the file "CG69.Tangoed.xml" select it and click Import, if you are using a different version to VB4.0.0 RC2 then you will need to select "Ignore Style Version".

Optional:

3. If you want the page selection menu arrows https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/ (http://www.hostmypics.org) to match the skin, you will need to upload the folder "pagination" WARNING this will affect every style as there is no option for the "pagination" image directory in the Stylevars.

Hope you like the skin.

Please remember to click Mark as Installed if you use this Style.

EDIT 1:

I noticed a problem with the editor earlier on, so I've just put it right. Some of the buttons were Dark Grey against a Black Backgroud, such as, https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2009/12/6.gif https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2009/12/7.gif https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2009/12/8.gif.

New

Due to the 2MB upload limit here, I've had to upload an extra zip folder with just the editor images in. Make sure you keep the file structure in tact.

forum root/images/sbo/editor

EDIT 2: (Sorry hopefully the last)

If you use the CMS, I've added some images from the cms folder that were again Dark Grey on a Black background, they are now Orange like the editor images above.

You will need to download the Tangoed.zip and cms+editor_images.zip files and use the updated .xml for the CMS images to be displayed.

I've also added the Admin & Mod CP links to the header. as per this mod.

PS if you've already installed this skin, you will only need to upload the cms folder to root/images/sbo

Thanks for your patience.

EDIT 3:

This was pointed out to me via PM.

Thanks to Lynne for pointing me in the right direction, it's now fixed.

I really hope this is the last update for this skin lol.

If you've already uploaded all the files just download the Tangoed.zip again and just use the .xml file to import into the current syle.

I've just updated the Skin, they shouldn't be there now.

If you use this style, please click Install, I won't provide support on this style to anybody else who hasn't clicked install.

Appologies for this, but I am new to making VB styles lol but I think I've nailed it this time.

If you use the CMS, I've added some images from the cms folder that were again Dark Grey on a Black background, they are now Orange like the above editor images.

You will need to download the Tangoed.zip and cms+editor_images.zip files and use the updated .xml for the CMS images to be displayed.

So you want the same skin offset with what colour?

I'd be willing to make another skin, it would be a lot easier now I have this one to use as a base for something else.

Thanks Cableguy69, a perfect job you've made :up:

I've installed your style into my test forum ( won't go live before Gold version is available) and was working on a style myself, but it's quit hard to get it perfect... and yours is really perfect.

In my life forum I'm now using more darkred and orange as style ( see attached), would it be possible to create such colors in your style ?

Kind Regards,
Marcel

The "stick" posts apear on a too much light orange mixed with white letters making almost impossible to read this threads.
