Detailed vBulletin skin installation instructions with images (http://www.bluepearl-skins.com/forums/topic/8317-how-to-install-a-vbulletin-skin-and-change-the-logo/)

Version 4.x of this template for vB4 uses no tables instead i decided to use CSS3 border-image, unfortunately Internet Explorer does not support border-image so the left and right border will not appear in IE, i added the top and bottom borders in IE with <!--[if IE]>

If you change the size of the logo (vbulletin4_logo.png) you will need to edit the header template and change the width to keep the logo centered perfectly:

In version 4.2.5 the border code was replaced to work with newer CSS3, with the older code the borders would not show in many browsers.

If anybody finds any bugs or needs support please post in this thread and not via private message. Thank you

awesome job, looks great

If I wanted to change the look of the border around the forums where would I find the code for it

Sean James

awesome job, looks great

If I wanted to change the look of the border around the forums where would I find the code for it

Believe it or not the border around the page is created using one simple image:

http://www.bluepearl-design.com/forums/images/Darkness3/darkness3/border.png

You can change the border by simple modifying this image.

If you want to have more control you will need to edit the CSS for <div id="darkbord">


#darkbord {
border: 11px;
-webkit-border-image: url(images/Darkness3/darkness3/border.png) 11 11 11 11 repeat repeat;
-moz-border-image: url(images/Darkness3/darkness3/border.png) 11 11 11 11 repeat repeat;
}


Which is hardcoded into the CSS file vbulletin.css which can be modified by searching the template files.

Also note that i had to add the top and bottom border in Internet Explorer with:


<!--[if IE]>
<div id="iesplit"></div>
<![endif]-->


But you can also edit this by modifying the image:

http://www.bluepearl-design.com/forums/images/Darkness3/darkness3/botbase.jpg

or the CSS id="iesplit"

Hope this helps

one teeny problem
on http://www.bluepearl-design.com/forums/group.php?styleid=100
in FF3.6 beta 5 (could also be a FF problem)
It doesnt come from your style.. but is a vbulletin issue.. as it is also happening in default style..
but adding a clear:both or something similar (floatcontainer) could fix that easely...

(you never know if or when vbulletin is going to fix it.. AND its better to have some enhancement..)

see screenshot.. (or it may come from the mixed characters) => i dont know...

text should be (as seen in sourcecode):
X---- cut and paste -----X sourcecode of that section:

Its definately a odd problem, i will look into this when i get time but hopefully vBulletin will fix this problem in 4.0.1.

I tested with Firefox 3.5.6 and dont see the problem, it could be a problem with the beta version of FF

Sean James

Darkness Version 6.1 released
-Fixed notification background color
-Fixed navbar_tab_selected_background image path
-Fixed album shadow colors
-Styled attachments page and popup
-Fixed background input/form colors
-Styled albums and groups

There may be other bugs, but these are all the major ones that i know of.
When vBulletin 4.0.1 is released i will do another update to fix other bugs that will be fixed in that version.

This has been my favorite style ever since I started using vBulletin. I've been migrating over to vB4 for the last week and asked my members for suggestions on what style to use on the new forums and apparently it has come down to this one again. Although, I need to come up with a new banner for the style since we are a MMORPG guild. I tried working with the current one, but I just couldn't get it to work. Nothing that needs to be fixed, I just need better skills working with graphics.

Old Site: http://vanguard.sacredhaven.org/

New Site: http://sacredhaven.org/forumsh/forum.php

My current issue is that the Arcade block background color isn't using the dark background from this style: http://sacredhaven.org/forumsh/arcade.php

That's a problem for the Arcade mod though.

--------------------------

I guess I spoke too soon! LOL. I just installed the newest version and now the reply text is the same color as the background. I noticed this same problem with the BP-Brown last week as well. I installed the newest BP-Brown and that one appears to be working now.

Get the image name of the current header image and search for it in styles. It's in one of the css files. Remove the line. Then edit the Darkness header style and the header image tag is at the bottom. Change it to the VB default header image tag and edit to suite.

One question please, On the demo and all of your other styles you have 2 boxes on the right hand side of the forum home page that you can collapse in and out, Is that part of this style or is that something else you have installed? The reason I ask is it does not show up for me :(

Exactly that same thing happens to me and in the Opera browser is worse, because the "remember me" does not appear ...

Also when I logging the phrase "welcome & username" also appears, only appears when you click to give part of "notifications", which also appear outdated or run to the left side and not underneath as it should be ...

Version 6.1 does not have these problems, and it looks good in color contrast in all browsers (the 6.0 had problems with contrast and other things) ...

6.3 I hope for these problems are corrected, it is the theme that I like and I think most use it forever ...

I have this style working for a sub forum, everything seems to be working except for the header and footer, neither want to show up at all. If I set the style for the entire forum they appear...

Also in the memberlist the letter A to Z are hidden by the white background, only if you highlight the letter can you see them.

Great skin, thanks. The only thing that seems a little out of place is the blue + and - signs that expand and collapse the section menu in the CMS.

Where at? In the last version, I was seeing white-on-white in the reply to message area and the post new thread area, but I'm not seeing it on this version.

Although, the Community -> Memberlist page has a parse error, syntax error on line 1. The links: New Posts, Private Messages, FAQ, Calendar, Community, Forum Actions, and Quick Links are going down the page rather than across.

This is found when users are trying to post replays or new threads. Happens in quick reply and in advanced.

Since updating to the latest version of this skin i have two issues:

1 - the username and password boxes for the login is no longer next to the registration link, but below it instead. This now places it behind the logo header.

2 - The logo header no longer appears on the arcade except for the name of the website.

Nice skin, but missing a few images

Darkness3/statusicon/post_old.gif - for hybrid/threaded mode
Darkness3/statusicon/wol_error.gif - for user "veiwing error message"
Darkness3/statusicon/wol_lockedout.gif - for user "veiwing forum closed message"
Darkness3/statusicon/wol_nopermission.gif - for user "veiwing no permission message"

Also, "remember me" tick box is barely above the logo image, just enough to be able to tick the box

So far, this is an excellent theme, just a couple minor missing items. Please update.

I was wondering if anyone can help me with the navbar.
if you go to www.sorrynoobs.com/board and look at the navbar, you can see that it does not move as it should i guess. If you open it, and make the window smaller, the buttons all move, go behind the search box and even down below where the navbar should be. I guess I'm making it hard to explain, easiest way to show you is to have you look at it. here is some screen shots. As you can see in image1, the navbar is fine so long as you have it maximized. In image2, you can see that if you make the window smaller, the navbar goes haywire.

Thank You,
Zain

I have a problem since upgrading to your new version of Darkness.

http://www.galaxyofstars.co.uk
My grid is 2 columns and a side bar. i.e. on the right hand side i'm supposed to have the "recent forum posts" widget. But it no longer appears since upgrading to your new style.

Now i've checked you forum and see others are having the same issue and you tell them to raise a support ticket with vBulletin.

However, when i change my default skin to the vBulletin default skin the CMS layout is perfect. But it is not when i choose your skin. Doesn't this mean it is a problem with your new version of the skin rather than a vBulletin issue?

please provide assistance with this.

Sent in a ticket to the VB team they came into my forums and fixed the issue. This is what they had to say


The problem is with your custom style. The column show up with the vB4 default style and templates. Using the default style I was able to edit the section and reset your CMS so it looks pretty good right now.

Hopefully I'm not reposting anything.

Just installed this on my current test site that's running 4.0.1. When I hover over the first forum in each category, the background changes to a darker shade. But if I hover over the 2nd or 3rd forums, the color does not change.

Looks like the hover is only being applied to the first forum of each category. This occurs on forumhome only. If you click on a category (forumdisplay), all forums will "highlight" when you hover them.

edit: This is only occurring in IE8, it works in FF.

Same, confirmed in both IE8 and FF. Sample VBB4 install has a wide "navigation" block. On the sample section "News", the "navigation" block moves to the right, but it still wide.

The third column on the sample CMS page (Recent blogs, Reccent posts, etc), is completely missing.

Make sure you dont have your CMS skin set manually. Goto your cms page and hover your mouse on the title until u see the pencil image popup.

Clicking ignore with the style is fine because there was no template changes that efffected this skin.

For the home/cms problem that is caused by caching, change this by going to your CMS and hover the title until a pencil pops up, click this and set the style manually.

The only thing i have come across that need some attention is the login text on the home page. When I log in I cant see what I'm typing (I assume it black text). Though in the forums I can see what I'm typing when I login. Is there an easy way to change this, I am not particularly literate in these types of things.

This is a fantastic style/theme. Well done :)

Are you using a vBulleitn version below 4.0.4?

Make sure your board is using at least 4.0.6, recommnend 4.0.7

Does this happen on my demo board?

Yep using 4.0.7

On your demo board it works as it should, the text is readable when longing in. I must have changed a setting accidently somewhere. any idea how to change it back to match yours.

cheers man for quick reply :)

Best way would be to upload the style again as a different name, and then compare the templates to your modified ones and see what has been changed.

Get the image name of the current header image and search for it in styles. It's in one of the css files. Remove the line. Then edit the Darkness header style and the header image tag is at the bottom. Change it to the VB default header image tag and edit to suite.

I can't seem to find the CSS, can you elaborate on which one to edit?

Last 3 day's is on the demo site a message that the are updating all styles to vb4.08.

Awesome Header! :cool:

Damn shame though with these updates VB is doing, the coders and designers can't keep up with all the changes . www.masterofwar.net trying to get ready for the Black Ops Release, now at the mercy of the coders....:erm:

Be happy to send a $20.00 donation to update for Darkness3 4.0.8

01 Nov 2010, 03:54
Thanks, it looks great in Firefox but I need to figure out the IE issues. I know I read something but been busy getting everything looking right. I'm sure as soon as I finish get it right for my site, somebody that actually knows what they are doing will get Darkness up to date. For me, it's a whole lot of trial and error on my test site.

On this time i have no reply from Pearl about the update. Maybe he wait till vb is upgrade to 4.09?

mmacrypt
05 Nov 2010, 16:54
I can for sure Iyama but I don't have everything figured out as of yet. My Bookie pages still needs lots of work. And I did so much trial and error, I'm not sure exactly what all I've changed but I will post what I can.

mmacrypt
08 Nov 2010, 16:53
I can give you the rest but I think I'm dropping Darkness for now, I just can't get my bookie page to work for me the way I want. My Crypt Bookie is a big part of the site and I cant have it looking like crap before back to back UFC events. So today, I'll be trying a couple of other dark styles. Once this one is made 4.0.8+ happy, I'm sure I'll come back cause I like the look in FF a lot.

iyama
09 Nov 2010, 10:01
Still no answer of the decoder here or from Sean mail. :(

Could you give me the settings for the widgets?
Thats only the thing i needed now.

Style is looking good in FF right now after the first fase. :D

In IE the border is gone buth that was already told in the first post here.
Version 6.0 of this template for vB4 uses no tables instead i decided to use CSS3 border-image, unfortunately Internet Explorer does not support border-image so the left and right border will not appear in IE, i added the top and bottom borders in IE with <!--[if IE]>

iyama
09 Nov 2010, 16:51
There is a answer from Blue Pearl:
Darkness our free skin will be updated this week, this skin is very complex so is taking abit of time :D

mmacrypt
09 Nov 2010, 17:07
Very cool, do you still want to mess with doing it manually Iyama or should we wait for a bit and see if the actual Darkness is done this week. I can promise you, anything he does will be a lot better than what I'm doing ;)

14 Nov 2010, 09:52
Just give me the settings about the cms widgets. The are white and dont look good.
If i was white the whole day, my doctor puts me on medication. :D

I'll get my changes posted today for anyone that wants to try them. But I can't really offer support or anything cause I really don't know what I'm doing myself to be honest. It's just trial on error on my test site till if figure it out, then update my live site.

Hello,

What's difference between 6.7 et 7.0 for this style ? Can I continue to use 6.7 version for VB 4.1 ?

Thks

Sean James
06 Dec 2010, 23:56
When you upgraded to 4.1.0 and if the vBulletin upgrade system managed to merge and update your template automatically you will be fine.

IF you have any notices in your ADMINCP about 'out of date templates' for Darkness then i suggest using 7.0

Hello,

It seems this style didn't work at 100% under IE. I don't have the same result between IE and Firefox (I didn't test all browser). E.g. borders didn't appears on left and right under IE.

I can't ask my users to run with firefox only :)

Griffin,

I love and hate this skin.

I love it because I think it's unbelievably awesome. I hate it because it always reminds me that I have absolutely NO sense for Styling my own skins. X3 Thanks a bunch for offering such a cool skin, an' for free!



I'm having some problems with it on 4.1.1 (using 7.0), but I'm hoping your 7.1 release'll fix 'em. Lookin' forward to it. :>

Hey Griffin not trying to be a pain just curious, did you release 7.1 or is it still in process? Thanks for all you do.

Problems I'm having with 7.0

1) vBH or other tab extras won't stay up when page selected.
2) The obvious i.e. issue.
3) I made child themes so I could change the header image and select each child them with a specific page but the header doesn't change.

Thought I would share those with you and see if anyone else is having these issues.
