Click here (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=137184) for the 3.6.4 download!

and here (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=179564) for the new 3.7.0 download!

This style gives you the messenger 7 look on your boards, I first made it as a joke, but it actually turned out to be pretty neat. Have fun!

Very easy to install, please click *install* when you use it :)

Changes:

- Oct 27 2005: [1.1] missing images added & file changes regarding msn legal issues.
- Jun 7 2006: [1.2] Update for vBulletin 3.5.4 + small design update

Triple_T you might want to make the theme/style as default on your demo.
I can see there might be some confusion otherwise.

BTW Nice clean looking style.
Well done.

Do you think its possible to make the New Forum statusicon a little darker? Its hard to tell the difference when there's a new post.

Thanks. Yeah maybe, imo it can do them no harm and actually gives them free publicity, they should pay me $$$ just for that!

Most people change it anyways so no live logo's will show. If they email me I will remove it.


ps: zip updated with all images now!

I would strongly advise you to alter logo and the name asap if your 'skin/theme' fails to meet the criteria as set out by their 'Logo and Trademark Guidelines'

They will sue first, ask questions later!
I'm only hopeing you do so before they track you down and cause you a headache.

No but you can't use someone else's logo to distribute with your own product. This is a style with the graphic style from messenger, you use it with your own logo, so people recognize that they are on your board and not on msn board or something. The only reason I put a msn style logo on it, is for show, it wasn't meant to be used on a production board ;)

Never mind Google Talk will be the new messenger soon enough, and as long as you have a google search box by the logo they wont give 2... well you know. Seeing as they allready give you the google logo with there search box anyway :D

They just need to run that year or so out with the ex ms employees, so they can start incorporating an improved technology they gave msn.

Replacing the msn logo with a file with the exact same name and file extention should do it. If not working try this: delete the old logo completely and upload your logo with a different filename. After that go to vbulletin admin cp > manage styles > Stylevars > Title Image. Change the filename there with the file you uploaded. Be sure it's the exact same location. After that push F5 on forumhome.

Yep you can install this template here is how u can do it..

Styles & Templates -> Download / Upload Styles -> Choose the files under "Import Style XML File" then select Yes for Ignore style version and import!

Template will be installed.. But remember if ur gonna use this template for 3.5.2 then certain template changes are required.. Visit this for more info on template changeshttp://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showpost.php?p=1027246

Well it works for all vB versions now, and some style elements/colors are more like the messenger.

It doesn't do anything to your hacks or tempates, it's just a css style :)

Of course i recommend a backup anyway.

Sure,

In admincp go to: "Style Manager", next to the MSN style, choose "Main CSS" from the menu

Now, in the body block you see "Hover Links CSS"

Use Font Color: #FF4400 or whatever color you like. :)
