Updated things to vB3.8.3 and SimpleBlue Pro WITH SIDEBAR released.

Included: 4 Sidebar blocks with potential to add heaps more and A dynamic news fader block!

Improved since last version (PRO ONLY), Spacing between categories, spacing between posts, better navigation interface.


***********************************************************
***********************************************************

Upgrading from an older version of my style.
  • Overwrite the "yourforum.com/simpleblue" directory with the one in the 3.8.3 zip.
  • Upload the Language XML (THIS IS NEEDED FOR PARTS OF THE SKIN WHICH ARE CUSTOM CODED TO WORK)
  • Upload the Style XML and click "Allow overwrite"

If you are unsure, drop me a PM and I shall install the style for a very reasonable price.
***********************************************************
***********************************************************

Editting the Dynamic News Content Block

Go to the style manager, and then navbar template, and at the bottom of the navbar template, there is the sidebar blocks. Find and edit the:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

everything after the =" and before the last ";


***********************************************************
***********************************************************

Editting Content Blocks

Go to the style manager, and then navbar template, and at the bottom of the navbar template, there is the sidebar blocks. Find "<!-- SIDEBAR -->" and edit the content, which you should see easily, as it is plain text and not code.


***********************************************************
***********************************************************


Update: 6th July 2009 .

Ironed out more bugs (I dunno how there are so many!)
Fixed Sidebar (I really really hope)
Fixed the "white name in profile"
Fixed Profiles for the Slim version (800x600)


Please click installed if you use this. Thanks.

I hadn't installed it on my own forums, but I did install it for a friend's board. I'm waiting to hear back from him on whether he likes it or not.

I do know that several hawaii forums love this style though.

Sorry about that Trevster, I've downloaded it on XP, Vista and the Mac and all work fine, I'm really wondering here. Are you using WinRAR, Maybe I should invest in winzip, and use that to create my zips..

Anyway, There was an alternate download location listed, earlier in the thread, or you could go to this link:

http://mikeydesigns.co.uk/simpleblue.php

If you do download from there, please remember to click installed, thanks.

Sorry, missed that link mikey.

Downloaded fine from your site this morning (still got error when downloading from here) so thanks for that.

Yeah, using WinRAR on XP Pro SP3 here. Tried the download with IE7 and FF3 but same message on both.

Thanks for prompt assist!

I want to make a request. Would it be possible to get a version of PRO with a left or right sidebar?

inserting any sort of sidebar is breaking the style completely.
