Blue Web 2 buttons for default vB skin

vB Version: All Versions Rating: (32 votes - 4.84 average) Installs: 282

Not Supported Additional Files  

I've been looking for some buttons to replace the slightly ugly buttons that come with the default vbulletin skin. I wanted them to be roughly the same size as the originals.

Inspired by demgel's excellent black glossy buttons, and using the Silk icons, I made these for my own site.

The zip file contains a number of sets, with popular mattes. The Photoshop PSD file is also included.

Installation:

Simply upload the files to your forum/images/buttons and forum/images/misc directories. To uninstall, copy the originals back.

For standard vb colours, use different sets according to whether you use postbit legacy (when looking at a thread, the users info is on the left of the post) or the new postbit (where the posters info is above the post) and use the appropriate button set.

To use the PSD enclosed:

1. Make your changes.
2. Make sure there is no background selected.
3. Save for web and devices.
4. Select individual slices and set the matte colour (background you are going to have behind the buttons).
5. When you press Save, choose "All user slices".

The font used is Myriad Web Pro (not included in PS, but is included in Lightroom and Lightroom trials, if they still do them). PS will happily replace this font with Myriad Pro, which is very close.

I'm no designer, but I hope they are useful.

They can be seen in action here.

Standard colours:



Black:



Red by request:



Postbit legacy:




Postbit (new):



Versions:

1.0 My first thoughts
1.1 Added some mattes
1.2 More mattes
1.3 Reduced the size of the small round buttons, added a black button set
1.4 Made "postbit legacy" and "postbit new" versions
1.5 Added buttons: thanks, px, reputation, included PSD in main file, small cosmetic changes to the buttons, added black buttons to the PSD.
1.6 Made some changes to the appearance (get rid of the softness at the bottom of some buttons and reduced the inner glow to look better on black), added some buttons and included some requested colours.

It would be great to have the black buttons on a light background, if at all possible?

I don't suppose it would be possible to have a blue button with white matte created that can be used for a "to the top" button?

Its the only button atm that looks out of place on my site as it's from a different modification I added.

It looks like this:

These are beautiful and just what I was looking for!

Could use a SKYPE button on the blue ones though. Has anyone made one that they'd like to share?

Also, anyone have STATUS ICONS with this style that they could share as well?

So, no one has been able to get that elusive SKYPE button done, huh?

If you have, can you please share?

Edited: I just realized that there is, in fact, a Skype button included. (Edit details, you'll see it there)

But, the icon that you see in the posts for the members that have Skype is being 'pulled' from the site itself. There might not be a way to change that unless Skype changes it to our style.

Excellent work, currently using these on my forum.

Would be even better if you could include some more status icons with it for New Posts, Hot New Threads etc.

Oh, that would be cool!

Can you do additional ones for these other icons?
