About
This is something we use on digitalpoint.com to make the CSS better and more efficient.

Installation
  • Upload the contents of the upload folder to your installation
  • Install the product-digitalpoint_css.xml product under AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
You can see a live version in action here (on any page really): http://forums.digitalpoint.com/

Details
Rounded Corners
vBulletin 4 only supports rounded corners for Firefox, Chrome and Safari. This plug-in makes rounded corners also work in Opera and Internet Explorer.

Gradients
It appends some CSS markup to your primary CSS file that makes use of CSS3 gradients (gradients defined right in the CSS file itself). vBulletin uses 5-7 gradient images per page view normally, and this eliminates the need for the browser to download those images. CSS3 gradients are supported in Safari, Firefox, Opera and Chrome. For browsers that don't support CSS3 gradients, they will simply fall back to the normal image-based CSS gradients that vBulletin uses by default.

Notes
This plug-in is useful for sites that use vBulletin 4 default styles, or at least styles that utilize the same classes and methods for doing things within the CSS files.

This plug-in does NOT add any extra CSS files, nor does it edit your existing ones. Instead it appends some new info to the end of your main CSS file that comes from it's own template. It also adds an attribution link.

You can find more info here: http://products.digitalpoint.com/vbulletin-css.php

Changes
1.0.2
  • CSS3 Gradient support for IE10 (early, I know... but it's there)
  • Handles gradients in vB Suite Blog and CMS
  • Works properly for CSS stored as files

Uninstallation: Automatic uninstallation is a bit of a catch 22... you need to compile templates to uninstall it, but vBulletin has no function built in to compile a group of templates. So uninstalling it removes the code needed to uninstall before the uninstall code is executed. So in order to uninstall this, disable just the one plug-in that is part of this product at the template_compile location, and then run Compile CSS Templates option under AdminCP -> Maintenance -> Update Counters. Once you do that, you can uninstall the whole product without any problems.

Well ir's generally not going to work well (or at all) if your site doesn't use the standard vBulletin gradients. It's a replacement for normal gradients, not a replacement for custom gradients.

Yeah, for themes that swap gradients or use their own, it's not going to be really useful.

That theme in particular uses a gradient that is different than standard for it's highlighted navtab.

I suppose one could go and edit the dpg.css template and remove the navbar definitions so those wouldn't apply, but seems like more work than it's worth to be honest.

When I get some time I might see if there's a way to do gradient replacements based on the image file name instead of CSS selectors. That would eliminate the issues when different than standard gradients are used. Although, I have a feeling it's going to be fairly complicated to do something like that... {sigh}

DP I'm not saying it's your plugin that is causing it but would value you input.

Site has be running fine, but since around the time of installing the first version you release (then upgrading it each time) users on my site have been complaining that they're randomly getting duplicate private messages? 2 at a time.

Do you feel this plugin could have anything to do with that? thanks in advance mate.

No, I don't thInk it could have anything to do with it. It does nothing related to private messages. All it really does us alter CSS files from the admin control panel, and there is no CSS markup in the world that could inject extra data into your database (extra PMs).

In vBulletin 4.1.3 border-radius was added (http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBIV-4888), so you don't need to replace it any more. If you run this mod on 4.1.3, you will get two border-radius instances.
+ It only seems to replace the webkit part and it's not removing the mozilla part like it should.

So you get:

Leaving -moz-border-radius was intentional since it was only recently supported with Firefox 4.

Ah, I thought your intention was to strip all old browser stuff

DPs CSS plugin gives Sidebar background wrong color


After having installed Digital Point's CSS plugin for vBulletin 4, I've lost control over the color of the forum sidebar. I'm have both tried the old forum_sidebar_background Stylevar, and the new (functioning) Stylevar called sidebar_background, but the background color of the forum sidebar doesn't obey. This is when using the default vB4 skin*. I'm using version 4.1.4.

Any suggestions?

* and other skins.

I need to deinstall this product ASAP, since it has messed up some Stylevar-functionality. But I have no idea what "disable just the one plug-in that is part of this product at the template_compile location" means. Can anyone please explain? Thanks.

@Vegan: I think , it is AdminCP ---> Plugin and Products ---> Plugin Manager . Under the Product : Digitalpoint CSS, you will see template_compile location ---> Uncheck the Active and save. Follow the remaining steps.
