Bright gradients of oranges,yellows,and reds make for a pretty interesting theme.
Not my thing, maybe it's yours. Either way,it was fun to put together.

This is a great Style!

I marked as installed.

I also gave it an Excellent rating with the assumption that a few things will be fixed.

The text is not showing up with a bunch of my widgets.

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

The text is not showing up on the Recent Article Widget. I am assuming that it is due to the same problem.

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

Also, can you make the Hyperlinks a different color than the rest of the text so that it stands out as a link? Sunset theme color perhaps?

You can have a look at my site to see what the Sunset Style looks like: WainwrightForum.com (http://www.wainwrightforum.com)

Thanks! :D :up:

Thanks!

That is the difficult part about developing anything. Whether it is Styles for Vbulletin, Software products or whatever. It is extremely difficult to get everything perfect with the very first release because it is very hard for you to see every situation. When many others try it out and give you feedback, then it helps you to perfect it. :)

It's my fault for forgetting to label it as forum only :( ,I do not currently have the cms or blog on my own site but a friend of mine does. I am sure he will let me develop this style to fit the blog and cms as well as the forum. Right now he's not around. I will get on it as soon as i contact him. Sorry about the temporary issues, they will get resolved as soon as i can get to them.
Thank you MikeLac for the input and encouragement. I will label this as updated as soon as i can get working on it.

Not a problem! I guess that would make sense why it was working great on the Forum and not so much on the Home Page.

Looking forward to having the CMS and blogs look like the Forum. :)

I just installed the Update.

Looks great!

I only have 3 Issues.

How can I make it Full Screen? The other Styles that I have uses the Full Screen. With this Style, some of my Widgets don't fit properly in some of my sections because everything is more compressed.

I would like the hyperlink text to be a different color so that it stands out and people will know that it is a link.

Could you make the sections menu background and border the same as the Recent Forum Posts and the Recent Articles? Without that, it is too much black.


Thanks! :)

P.S. I really appreciate the work of Developers like yourself that spends time to develop Styles and Mods and then shares it with the rest of us. :cool:

Alright man. Did some more stuff for you.
No more customizations.

You did some more stuff JUST for me? :erm:

When I try out a Style, Mod, or whatever, I like to give the Author some Feedback on any flaws that I see or some suggestions on how I think it could be improved. Isn't that what you want when you post a new Style? Some Feedback? I gave you a 5 Star rating right from the start assuming that a few things would be fixed. I could have done what some others did. Downloaded and installed it. Saw the things that they did not like and uninstalled it and gave a 2 Star rating because they could not be bothered to offer suggestions. With the updates that you have done, it is now worth the 5 Star rating that I gave you.

There are many Mods and Styles on this Forum that have been greatly improved upon because of Feedback from Members such as myself. When I offer suggestions or point out flaws, I always try to make sure that I don't sound like I am being critical. Because developers such as yourself spend many hours of their time developing Styles and Mods for everyone's benefit. A developer does not need someone taking their work for Free, not even offer up a Thank You or any kind of appreciation for the hard work, and then turn around and criticize the work.

The Stuff that you did SPECIFICALLY for me will benefit everyone that downloads and Installs your Sunset Style. I certainly do not mind making donations to developers for their hard work in developing the Styles and Mods that I end up using on my site. I plan on doing just that. A little short on cash at the moment.

That being said, I am really grateful for the work that you have done developing this Style as well as your other Styles. It is greatly appreciated! And Thank You for doing the Updates! :cool:
