OK, very professional, and just superb to look at.

I find two issues though, first, probably not an issue, I just don't see the reason to have two "styles" folders (one with a capital S). With all the modifications people do to their forums, there's no reason to make it more complicated. But, easily fixed.

Second, some add ons to the FORUMHOME template, in the What's Going On section, have a light gray background as opposed to the darker. There has to be a place to alter that in the stylevars, but I haven't found it yet.... Keep forgetting what stylevars is attached to what area....

Try the Blocksubheader color.. not sure 100% as i am not at home and can not install to help you out, you can also try searching in the .xml file for: "#999999" (minus the quotes) and replace with the color of your choice.

This was talked about I think on the first page of this thread. There is no issue as you said. It seems people are not happy with it this way which is fine, I will think about changing paths I guess if it makes a difference.

That is all jacked out of shape. The developer of that addon is using the forumrow_background stylevar for some of it and somehow picking up the color:#999999; somewhere. Only way I can attempt to fix that is to check it out on your forum but I would need Admin Style & Template access to do so. They are aalso trying to use the forumhead_background for the categories which obviously isnt working either. PM me if you want help fixing it.

Working on a update. I wasn't thinking about all the options/mods when making some of the images.

Thats because your not using the birthday and guest tracking hack. Nor are you using the sub forum hack.

Yours greys out to the bottom, the longer it is the lighter grey it goes.

Thanks for your time fixing this Qwk86gn!.

i downloaded the new stuff and the folder drop down has me confused....

i extracted all files and overwrite what i had so now i have a folder: Blackend>Blackend> PSD, upload, xml, readme.txt, vbulletin-Blackend.xml

in upload folder i have images, styles........ in xml folder i have vbulletin-Blackend.xml (which has a larger kb size) and vbulletin-Blackend-red.xml

in styles folder i again have Blackened folder......... in images folder i have another folder called styles.....

im just lost as to which ones i must upload or do i upload the images files to my already existing images file in my forum folder?

Well the zip is called "Blackend". Only thing you upload is what is in the "upload" folder.

If you upload the zip and are extracting it on the server via the File Manager on your host then it will be confusing. If you are doing it this way, simply zip the "images" folder and upload it to your vbulletin install directory. Then extract it, then it should be fine.

Glad to hear synseal. A quick note, if you do not like the fading to gray, you can darken the background color in the stylevars so it is not so noticable but that takes away from the effect of the gradient. The problem in the previous version was my gradient was simply to short.

Stylevars: forumrow_background & forumrow_firstentry_background are the 2 Vars for the the forumrows.

Same goes for the Whats Going On background. (wgo_background)
