Questions and Answers

Q. So what do we have here?
A. Well that's simple! It's a member request for Sofia's CA EVO style to be updated to 4.x format since she posted that her styles could be used virtually in any manner see here for reference: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=256596

Q. Anything in particular that I need to know about this style?
A. Simple... the header is a fixed size so therefor if your logo is quite large please post a link to the image and I'll adjust the header accordingly. There is some <div style=" instead of <div class= in some areas this will be cleaned up in the 4.1.1 version in fact it will be clean-cut for 4.1.1!

Q. This is 4.1.0 PL2 Style why did you not release a 4.1.1 version and will you release and keep this updated unlike other styles on here?
A. I decided to release it initially in 4.1.0 PL2 format as many are still using that atm, within a week I will have a 4.1.1 version released and yes I do plan on keeping this style updated, in fact KevinL has stated he would do a few colors as the original CA EVO style had 25 colors, yes 25 so we do plan on releasing more variations as well so in the end there will be 25 different colors :cool:.

Q. Why is there a .zip inside the .zip?
A. Well the forums here have a max of 3.0MB file size limit on .zip files so I made it a .zip then added that one into another .zip, this reduced the file size from the 3.15MB down to 2.15MB! Now simply extract the main -Compressed .zip then extract the inside CA_EVO_REMIX-vB4.zip and your ready to rock and roll!

Enjoy the style and post any questions below!

Special Thanks to:

Billy Pilgrim - Initial motivation lol :D
KevinL - Offering assistance!
Sofia - I miss you on here and thank you for all your past contributions to this community!

Not at the moment, it's on my test site and .htaccess protected per the license agreement plus I have my rhyme and reason for only one style on my company site. I'll see if I can't throw it up as a demo here soon just busy atm is all :p.

What modification is that from? You could possibly modify the code from the mod in question to remedy... let me know ;).

Gonna try this.

scubasteve3 02 Jun 2011 05:26

Great style!

One thing I noticed. In the users profile, a lot of the text is white which makes it non-readable.

shzad1 02 Jun 2011 14:42

Awesome Work Bro.....
Thanks to Sofia

jojojijijojo1 03 Jun 2011 13:18

Unfortunately I no longer have a 4.0.7 board live and will only be releasing a 4.1.3 or 4.1.4 version here soon more than likely a 4.1.4 version. I do apologize for not initially keeping my word and releasing new version w/ each subsequent version of vBulletin I simply became busy at work and well - nuff' said :cool:.

DaffyDuck 05 Aug 2011 19:56

Any plans to release alternate color versions?

DaffyDuck 11 Aug 2011 00:55

What color and which version of vBulletin, are you still on 4.1.0?

Ohh and not until after vacation :p.

DaffyDuck 14 Aug 2011 06:34

vB 4.1.5pl1 right now.

Grey, Green, Red...

https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2011/08/32.jpg

No rush - have a great vacation!

DaffyDuck 10 Sep 2011 23:27

Hope you had a great vacation.

Grey, Green, Red, Black would be great as alternate colors.

It was toooooo short :p and long story short I'm swamped at work now so when I can fit it in I certainly will. I did however have time to install this on a 4.1.4 site and it seems fine, once I give it a quick run-through to ensure everything is up to par there should be no problem doing a few other colors.

DaffyDuck 01 Oct 2011 13:12

Thanks!

DaffyDuck 01 Oct 2011 13:13

Where did you go on your vacation?

Back to work afterwords.. if I could have stayed away I would have too :p.

Edit: Although I never try to be this blunt, I fear you'll continue to ask w/ whit per say so for now I'll simply leave it as "It'll be ready when it's ready"

Triky 27 Oct 2011 12:27

Hey TheLastSuperman, I'd like to thank you for this great free style.
One question. As you can see here: http://www.gimagioke.it/forum/index.php
.. I added a big logo, and the left corner remain in the same position. The right one is ok. Why? Can you please help me to fix this little thing?

BGN64 02 Dec 2011 17:46

This is going to be my default theme (vb 4.1.8) but I have a large logo and there is a bit of a formatting issue on the forum page. Any chance you could assist?

Hmm this should work fine up to version 4.1.7, in 4.1.8 you may notice some issues... do me a favor and install as-is, leave the stock logo up and test the rest... if everything seems fine then post the size of your logo - height in pixels i.e. 190px and I'll let you know what to adjust. If there's a lot not functioning or looking "off" then you should wait for me to release a 4.1.8 version before using as your main style ;).

Remember, styles are quick and simple to install and if they don't work you can uninstall completely and move on, then return at a later point to see if there's a updated verison :cool:.

BGN64 03 Dec 2011 13:23

The logo is 300w x 146h. The only formatting issue is on the forum.php page. http://www.meridianyachtowners.com/forum.php "Last Post" is down and to the right. It's a stock install except for a couple of image replacements.

I have some customization I would like to do to the theme as well. Is that something you offer?

Hmm bear with me, from the looks of it this will also need a few updates, for example the double-commas in-between usernames in What's Going On box and I know the profiles will do it as well in the recent visitors and some other misc updates are required.

BGN64 05 Dec 2011 21:25

Ok... thanks

bilgin61 04 Jan 2012 17:46

thank you

baileyom2011 26 Jan 2012 11:20

Thanks, i'm loving this style but I do have one problem, you can see it live HERE (I've called it Royal Blue in the drop down list if it's not the default when you check yet). the Nav Tab which is selected isn't readable like in your screenshots, hoping it's something simple but I'm not sure how to change it or whats gone wrong. Thanks

Edit: I might be doing some editing of the Nav Tabs later, but just to comfirm that it's like this on a default Nav bar, so it isn't interference from another Nav Tab mod.

DaffyDuck 01 Feb 2012 22:55

Seems like 4.1.10 broke parts of this theme. Any chance of a fix, soon?

https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2012/02/63.png

The "Last Post" heading is wrapped down to form an extra blue row (see above)

DaffyDuck 20 May 2012 19:47

Bummer - this is orphaned, now. It was a pretty good theme.

taumau 03 Jun 2012 14:13

Is fine to 4.1.11?

True however only due to the fact I had some initially say they would help upkeep this style AND help w/ making the other colors. Sadly I was the only one to work on this at all so when it's only one instead of three working toward something you fall short respectively.

No, I'm not updating this style to any current version however you can have someone more than likely sort all issues OR simply use the styles.xml for reference and re-create the style for you.

kevin.kool 18 Jul 2012 12:42

It's so sad when you said wont upgrade this style to the latest vB version.
Btw, it's nice style and thank Sofia for this wonderful skin.
