All themes are guaranteed to be supported for entire lifetime of 4.0

Q & A:

Q: Can I change the background?
A: Yes, simply rename any large sized image to the one provided in the upload or go into stylevars and edit doc_background. This is the background settings for the theme.

Q: Do lighter images work with this theme.
A: Recent updates have allowed lighter and brighter images to be compatible.

Q: How come ads aren't working?
A: If an ad location doesn't work, which happens alot in vBulletin, just go to the ad templates under the theme, and add the ad code in the respective location where you want it.

This is a very beautiful design, but the background image doesn't cover my entire
forum, it stops in the middle, and the rest is just black background color. Is there a way
to make the background image repeat and also where can I change the green fonts
for another color?

daveaite
24 Jan 2010, 07:55
I'm using a 26 inch screen monitor at 1920 x 1200 Resolution. I figured it should work for almost every user. What monitor and resolution are you using? I will see if I can get the image to repeat without looking repetitious.

Juggernaut
24 Jan 2010, 08:58
I'm using a 23 inch monitor with a 1920 x 1080 resolution.
and I don't get the background image all the way to the bottom.
After the image stops I get just black after that in the
background. The same for the portal and the posts, I only see
the background in the first two or three posts, after that just
black. Also I would like to change the green fonts. Thank you.

-Pixel Blue Released.
-You will need all of the Images from the zip folder in order to use Pixel Blue, all images will be included in that package. Just install the contents after the upload folder as normal. Then install both .xml files, or one or the other.

-Demos available for both

Edit: Droptop: Might be your layout. Doesn't seem like a theme issue. On my test site, (not my demo site since it only has forums), I have a left and right collumn. Actually you can see in the Demo Photos I have posted (thats from my test site) its working fine.

PukkaBen
24 Jan 2010, 17:11
I have done this before, and I will look into it now to see how the background image could be made static on vB4.

The main way to do this is to add this CSS...
body {background-attachment:fixed}
If anyone would like to give it a go, feel free!! I'm guessing you'd have to add that to the xml file prior to uploading as I can't see anywhere to add it in manually.

Fixed and uploaded the static version. Please Re-download the images files, re-write over the images because I made some edits to the background.

The image repeat didn't look as good when I woke up this mourning than 5am last night. ;)

Great style! Thanks so much!

Only problem I have is where you quick on say Links and get the drop down the links are almost unreadable because the bg color is about the same as the links.

Also, if a user goes to their settings and edits their profile then out to the right where there is text to help it's got the same problem. Can't read it because it's the same color almost as the background.

How can we change these now?

To anyone still trying to fix this problem you need to go into the StyleVar and change the Background for Postbit User.
I removed the Background image completely...i guess its up to what/how you want your forums to look like.
Hope this helps!

Found some other hard to see portions of the site:


When inserting a video using the image icon in quick reply, users can't see the button options to say okay or cancel
When editing a signature, the upload signature picture box has grew text that is very difficult to see
When viewing messages in a thread that have been soft deleted, the manage and view post buttons are not clearly visible until mouse over
When an admin or moderator looks at a post that has been edited to compare the versions, the text is not viewable due to the colors when you have the option to compare them.
Under Settings - Friends & Contacts the option to show avatars is difficult to read
Under view profile, where you can leave visitor messages, the B I U are all difficult to see
Actually, a lot of the lettering under Settings have text that is difficult to read due to the coloring
When posting a new thread, the additional options have some text that is not centered properly as well as some text that is difficult to see


This is all on White Pixel, it isn't a huge deal but just thought I would point these out for you.

Thanks for the list. If I have time I'll try to update these, very busy at the moment though.\

Those icons are dark because they are the default vB icons, and not theme "colored"

You can tone using an image editing program.

You'll have to edit the css thread settings

Yeah, but its time to move to 4.x. The more you keep investing into 3.8x, the harder it will be to part from it. In time, nothing will be supported for 3.8x. I'm not sure why vB keeps releasing updates for 3.8x as its old forum software. It just seems unreasonable to me to devote time to something expiring.

Thanks for the compliments. :)

Login box is affected by the tab background
Searchbox is affected by nav background I think

I don't know if the nav background effects the searchbox. The search box is showing white, and the nav background is rgb(51, 51, 51).

As for the login form, the tab background is a transparant image that's not white either.

Not sure where else to look.

Try using an addon for firefox called firebug. You can highlight certain components of vBulletin and it gives you hints to what stylevars it may be. :)

Thanks for the quick reply. Will it change it for all styles at once or will I be able to change it for each style independently?

Also, can you tell me what to change to make the image scroll with the forums? From what I read, this is like it used to be. I want the mustang one to move with the forums since currently, due to image size, most users only see the top half of the car, haha.

daveaite
16 Mar 2010, 03:04
You'll have to change it for each style accordingly.

Image scroll > doc_background > add to vertical > "fixed"

I wasn't aware that it wasn't fixed. If you want a reference, take a look at the other pixel style vars what they have for doc_background and just copy that. Right now my servers are down so I can't fix the themes as I switch to dedicated. I may be able to update the car theme though.

You'll need to custom edit the css. Its better to keep it white personally.
3. How to Make these lines white instead of black?
https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2010/03/38.jpg
Go into stylevars and changes the borders to white.

4. How to change these to images vice text?

Check under stylevars under calendar_ ...color

Installing this Style completely nukes every other style on my forum including the Master style.

Twice now i have had to reinstall ALL original files and re-import the master style to get rid of it.

If i dont resintall all original files i can get back most of my other styles by reimporting their xml files.

however in the CMS the navigation header seems to be hardcoded and so does the vbcms header text color.

what is going on here? :confused:

You may be installing over your original theme. I have this installed on a test server and on a demo server so

Here's what could be the problem
1. Your installation of vB is corrupt
2. Your installation procedure is wrong
3. Try catching me on dave@buypoe.com on MSN if you would like, I could try and see what the problem is.

Ok, Thanks Dave i have added you on msn.

I have been using vbulletin for some years and am a web developer myself, so am quite well versed in the install process and administering vbulletin to some degree.

i install as a new style with no parent, and upload the xml file to the server and specify the relative path to it, rather than choosing from my local drive.

i think i will load up a test site and let you have a look around so you can give it a go yourself.

When viewing: User Profile -> About Me
Contact & Stratistics have a line thru them. Think the line should just be under each title.

When posting new thread the text words are gray on a gray background. Slight shade diffference but extremely hard to read.

"Valid file extensions: bmp doc gif jpe jpeg jpg pdf png psd txt zip"
"Use these controls to immediately perform an action on the thread containing this post."

Under Visitor Message the color black used in the editor for bold, italic & underline are near impossible to see. Suggestion is to make the editor the same colorization new post?

Are you having grid issues? I switched in new grids (built into the theme) Let me know if you have problems

I also download the new "space" style and uploaded the new xml. Same issue with the right column being too wide. I will email you with a user account so we can figure out why this is happening.

One thing I noticed is that all your screenshots are of the "forum" and not of the "CMS"

If your CMS looks fine with these styles couldn't you just flatten the grid and post up the code so we all can use it??

I would think that would be an easier route vs. giving you admin access to my server.

Just an idea, seems more then a few people are asking for this grid.

Thank you for your help.

Contact me via MSN or email
dave@buypoe.com. You'll have to give me admin access for help.

I just downloaded the new xml..... Still the same issue.

I have the "whitespace" style saved as "test" under my style chooser.

You can see where the column is way too big vs the default vbulletin style.

Still not working properly on my board. The grid adds 2x 50% width columns, but the third is nowhere to be found. For right now, all of the standard layouts work side any 3 column layout, so I'm going to stick with a different default grid. A 2 column with sidebar works properly as well, so I'm thinking the issue lies in the third column somewhere.

I am having problems though, go to my "register" page like you are going to register. You will notice the font color on the menu for like security questions...etc... you cant read. In style var what do I need to change to change that font color there or the background image of that border that is gray making it too hard to read?

Also go to my profile: http://www.radarreviews.org/forums/members/radar-reviews/

The "About Me" page is messed up, has that big white box there so you cant read the text there about how many posts I have made...etc.. what would I change in stylevar to fix that?

Can you make the background images bigger or make them fade into the background color? On large monitors it looks weird how the backgrounds pictures just abruptly end then it's black.

I know what you mean on big monitors. I'm using 2 "26 inch" monitors to test the themes.

I didnt think it looked to wierd, although I can try to stretch the current images without losing quality. We'll see.

Anyone know how to add the "facebook connect" button to the log in area?

Seems we lost that with this style.

I'm unsure how the default vbulletin facebook connect works. Let me know if you guys figure this out. I have a feeling it has to do with the header code.

docvader
23 May 2010, 08:15
It's in the header code, and I can make it work once you're logged in. I can log in with the default vb4 style, and then move to your style and see the facebook connect logo in the header The problem is, with your drop down java log on, I don't know where to put this code.

The code is:
<vb:if condition="$vboptions['enablefacebookconnect']">
{vb:raw facebook_header}
</vb:if>

It goes in the member option area, usually right after this line in HEADER

<li class="welcomelink">{vb:rawphrase welcome_x_link_y, {vb:raw bbuserinfo.username}, {vb:link member, {vb:raw bbuserinfo}}}</li>

Now, if you can put this in the appropriate place in HEADER, and in your template for the log in area, it should work....

Also, you need to put the two facebook gif's into your misc (image) directories.

If you got the Facebook connect working, could you post your header code in it's entirety? Thanks!

24 May 2010, 11:56
Honestly, if you look at the vBulletin.com forums, facebook connect will be obsolete soon, and will be replaced with Open Graph or whatever its called. Facebook is planning on merging their Connect button with a bunch of other websites like Google/Yahoo/Myspace,OpenID, so that logging into sites really becomes alot easier for everyone.

So all these facebook connect problems will be a thing of the past give or take a few months-year at most...

In that time, you may lose all your members that joined through facebook connect, due to database config...who knows how it will be set up.

docvader
25 May 2010, 06:31
vb 4.04 is supposed to have a facebook bridge in it, whereby threads go to a facebook site along with your forum. I think vbulletin is staying on top of this issue, and, unfortunately, (I'm not a facebook fan by any means...) this whole interaction is here to stay.

I think that when you connect with facebook connect, and you're a new user to the forum, vb creates that user in your database. If you're a current user, and you connect with facebook, it will either log you in as that facebook user, or, you can associate your facebook account with a current forum account.

And then, to complicate matters, in the typical "take over the world" facebook fashion, when you log in with an account that exists on your forum, facebook creates yet another user (your forum user).

I'm not quite sure I understand it all yet. But, unfortunately, for those of us with websites, I think this is going to be a necessary evil.

It shouldn't be that difficult. in the Header, just put the code as I listed it. Problem is, I'm stuck with this style's log in template; I can't seem to find it. That code also has to go in the log in template. It should work at that point.

Well I can reverse the changes, and make the theme slighty more boring :P But I love the log-in system xD

docvader
27 May 2010, 05:32
Log in system is great, please keep it. Thought you might be able to add the facebook connect option to that part of the code.

Personally, I've drifted away from the whole facebook connect thing, but, given that vb4.04 is supposed to have increased facebook functionality, it's something to consider for the future.

Updates on this or perhaps it's just me?

When I check something such as the edit history of a post, I get this "white background" making it impossible to read anything (Attachment -- ignore the red box, I put that there).

Another question I have is about the postbit vs. postbit legacy. It seems like only the postbit legacy version takes on the stylevar for postbit_background: url(images/pixelpremium/bk2.png). When I use the normal postbit, the background is simply transparent. Is this a style error, am I looking at the wrong stylevar, or something else?

Thanks.

Here's a question. I've got a heavy modifcation that seems to work pretty snazzy, but when I look at it on an iPhone or an iPad, it comes out like this:

On Safari/IE/FF it displays correctly as designed:
117989

On iPhone (image scales and does not stay fixed in background):
117990

On iPad: (image scales and does not stay fixed in background):
117991

Has anyone found a work-around for mobile browsers and the fixed background?

(Sorry, it's on a testing server so I apologize for the redacting of the actual URL where it is)

Unsure what your issue. Could be a million of things.


Also with the addition of facebook connect in vBulletin 4.04 soon, I will test the theme and see if I can integrate it with the advanced log-in. Once 4.04 is released, that is.

YOu need to upload the images to the /forum/images folder, it should look something like this

forum/images/pixelpremium/ (and here are all the icons and what not)

Make sure whatever theme you are using has its' own folder in the images section of your root.

Facebook connect implementation would be nice. not sure if the new 4.0.4 messed up any of the skins yet.

I'm hoping the style generator will help eliminate the portions of your skin where the text is impossible to read because of the background and text matching
