I added tables to the style & modified a lot of template files to make it show separated thread information like many vb.org users has requested.

This has taken more than 4 hours of work in total, please mark as installed if you use it.

I will explain how to install the template in 2 different ways.

USE A OR B Depending on your needs, DO NOT FOLLOW BOTH WAYS

_____________________

A. Simple, Automatic clean installation [ As A New Style ]

[ USE THIS METHOD IF YOU WANT A DEFAULT NEW TEMPLATE, YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE IT LATER ]

For this method you only need to download: e-Default_Style_v1.1.xml
Login to your Admin CP
Styles & Templates > Download / Upload Styles
Under : Import Style XML File
Click Browse & select e-Default_Style.xml [Download From Attachments]
Merge Into Style: (Create New Style) [IMPORTANT]
Ignore Style Version [ Select YES ]
Parent Style: No Parent Style [IMPORTANT]
Leave Everything Else As is..
Click ImportMethod A Done, now go to your Forum home page & choose the eDefault Style from the drop down & That's all.

_____________________

B. Manual Edits [ Advanced Modifications ]
[ USE THIS METHOD IF YOU WANT TO APPLY THOSE MODIFICATIONS ON YOUR CURRENT STYLE ]
[ BE CAREFUL EDITING A NON-DEFAULT TEMPLATE FILE, A.K.A "MODIFIED" ]

[ BACKUP - BACKUP - BACKUP - BACKUP - BACKUP - BACKUP - BACKUP - BACKUP - ]

For this method you only need to download: e-Default_Style_Advanced_v1.1.zip

Find All Templates In The Downloaded Zip Folder & Replace The Contents Inside Them With The Ones You Find In The Zipped Folder.
Add The CSS Codes in additional.css into you current additional.css
You're Done !!NOTE: If the attached templates are already modified I suggest you use a code compare program & find the edits needed to be applied.

Method B Done.
_____________________
This template is tested on a Fluid style, however it should work perfectly with both Fluid & Fixed Styles.

WoW, great work, and that's what we we looking for from the developers. Thank you very much.

Here I hava some small questions :

- Threads & Posts expressions did't take the forum language as that on the FORUMDISPLAY, it is not a problem but just a small note
- How do I remove the date of starting of the thread?
- How do I move the date of the post to be on the left under the poster's name?

The link of the screenshot for explanations:

- Also, I want this to be combatiple with those using RTL languages as shown on the screenshot :

I'm glad you liked it, I made it in hurry after seeing some members asking for it & Yes, it's not, but you can create the phrases in any language you want and add the phrase variable instead of the words I added in the templates.


- How do I remove the date of starting of the thread?
- How do I move the date of the post to be on the left under the poster's name?

Search in the template for those 2 lines & change the text-align left or right as you wish:

.forumbit_post .forumlastpost .lastpostdate


.forumbit_post .forumlastpost



- Also, I want this to be combatiple with those using RTL languages as shown on the screenshot :

Thank you again.

Honestly, (Even tho my Forum is Arabic [RTL]) I made this Style for English-Language forums and it won't look well for RTL pages, however with small edits you can make it work, almost all custom text aligns are in the additional.css

RTL issues + Language phrases is the reason I put this Style as "Still In Beta"
Hopefully I'll update it later on when I have time to make it Perfect for English or RTL Forums.

Cheers.

I tried to serach about the vars you gaves and change the align but nothing changed, so I am waiting for your help. Because it will be difficult for me to check everthing but for you, as the developer, it will be much easier.

I will summaries what I want :
- Making the last post part on forumhome combatiple with RTL.
- Moving the date of the last post to be on left exactly under the poster's name "on forumdisplay" .
- To know from where to change the color of the box containing "last post & posts count" on forumhome.
I hope that these three points are not very disruptive, and I apologized for the inconvenience.

I will make a new Style & Customize it for "RTL" Language (Like Arabic..) & I'll keep in mind your above notes.

I'll do my best to work on it today

Thank you, I appreciate your help.

This template is tested on a Fluid style, however it should work perfectly with both Fluid & Fixed Styles.
I tested it on a Fixd style and it worked greatly as well as on a Fluid style.

Style is now updated, please use the new attached file.

abualk (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/member.php?u=39013), Regarding THIS (http://img42.imageshack.us/img42/928/texplanation.jpg) Request, sorry I didn't remove the Author name from below the Thread title, cause I don't think anybody would like that.

However, you may remove it yourself if needed
In threadbit Template, Find & Remove the following code:

{vb:rawphrase started_by_x_y_z_a, {vb:link member, {vb:raw thread}, null, 'postuserid', 'postusername'}, {vb:raw thread.postusername}, {vb:raw thread.startdate}, {vb:raw thread.starttime}}

You welcome,

Regarding the background color in your attached image, in additional.css :

background-color:#efefef;


It's repeated in there for many places, change them all to the same color (any color you want)

Hello kkk333 (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/member.php?u=229315), in which page do you want to separate the thread starter ?
I'll work on it for you as soon as I can.

This is a great style.....just wondering though -- is there an easy to get the "Thread Title, Username, and Last Post time" to align to the left in "forumhome" and also the same in 'threadbit."

Right now, Thread Title and Username are to the left, but the timestamp on the last post in the thread display is to the right.

Would like to line them up...Thanks.

So in forumdisplay you want an "extra" column to show the thread starter, just after the thread title, is this correct ?

Hi, Thread Title & username are already aligned left as you mentioned so I'm guessing you only need to align the timestamp, if that's the case please go to your additional.css and do the following:

Find:

#eSekartable td.eSekarF4 {
background-color: #efefef;
text-align: right;
border-bottom-width: 1px;
border-bottom-style: solid;
border-bottom-color: #333333;
width: 24%;
}


Change to:

#eSekartable td.eSekarF4 {
background-color: #efefef;
text-align: left;
border-bottom-width: 1px;
border-bottom-style: solid;
border-bottom-color: #333333;
width: 24%;
}


Additionally, you'll find a lot of alignments that can be changed in that CSS file to meet ur needs.

G`Luck.

Hi,

First let me say thank you! This is the style I like, I dont care much for the vbulletin default in vb4. I am used to this format on a forum I visit daily, and just like it.

However I am having trouble understanding one of the steps. I opted for method 2 as I have made some changes to the default style, nothing big, but just stuff from the admin area (my site is: luciditylounge.com).

The step I am having trouble understanding is this:

Find All Templates In The Downloaded Zip Folder & Replace The Contents Inside Them With The Ones You Find In The Zipped Folder.

I am just unsure of what I should do. The way I am reading it is to take the templates from the zipped folder, and then replace them with the ones in the zipped folder?

Could you clarify a bit on what you mean? I am not very good with code and stuff like this, so simple things that are known by most I dont!

I got the css stuff down, I added it to my additional.css file, there was nothing in it though, so your code is the only stuff in there.

Thanks
