Questions and Answers

Q. So what do we have here?
A. Well that's simple! It's a dark blue style for vBulletin 4.1.4 Suite (or Forum Classic).

Q. Anything in particular that I need to know about this style?
A. Simple - I don't advertise a lot, there are no advertisements shown when I make styles however I do know due to the centering of the logo, if you currently utilize the header ad locations you'll need to make changes if utilizing this style otherwise it will not display properly. *Fix planned for the 4.1.5 version and I'll patch this 4.1.4 version then as well, basically I'll be moving the header ad locations just above the normal below navbar locations to remedy this .

Q. This is 4.1.4 style why did you not release a 4.1.5 version and will you release and keep this updated unlike other styles on here?
A. Yes, unlike some other styles in the past I've released this is branded by our company and we do plan on supporting this style indefinitely.

Q. I see two different downloads available, which one do I use?
A. Simple:

- For vBulletin 4.1.4 through 4.1.7 use the file titled - Innovation_by_Instinct-Avenger_Blue-Compressed.zip
- For vBulletin 4.1.8 use the file titled - Innovation_by_Instinct-Avenger_Blue-vB4.1.8-Compressed.zip
- For vBulletin 4.2.1 and 4.2.2 use the file titled - Innovation_by_Instinct-Avenger_Blue-vB4.2.1-4.2.2-Compressed.zip

Q. I'm using a version for vBulletin 4.1.8 or up, why is the logo not clickable?
A. Well we have navtabs w/ a Home, Forum, and Blog button so why do we need more and more of the same links? Well I know some prefer it so here is a way to make it clickable:

You can utilize the transparent 1x1px transparent image to make the logo clickable again. *Please note this is not a default feature, to make the logo clickable you must edit template header and find:


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

Remove the <comment> codes as shown in red:


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

This is how the code should now look:


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

*If you use a different logo than the stock "Avenger Blue" and your making it clickable via the method above, please change the width="#" and height="#" to the correct values i.e. the same width and height as your new logo .

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 3.17MB down to 2.69MB! Now simply extract the main -Compressed .zip then extract the inside Innovation_by_Instinct-Avenger_Blue.zip and your ready to rock and roll!

Q. You have a link to your site in the footer, can I remove that?
A. You are not allowed to remove the link to our site i.e. "branding" unless you pay for a Branding Free Version. If I find someone running this without the copyright in place I will contact your host and file a DMCA complaint period the end. *Furthermore, we will not host discussions nor reply to any sort of inquiries on here in regards to paid or branding free versions so please do not bring up the subject of either in this thread.

*Click on the images below to view in a new tab/window, once in said window you can click the image again to zoom once more and see it clearer, providing a more accurate representation of the style .

a) Import the vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-Forum.xml file first.
b) Merge in the vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-CMS.xml (Options when uploading a style allow you to merge into a existing style, choose to merge this into the new style you just created using the Forum.xml.

With a fresh install and no changes your style works perfectly. I think a lot of the problem folks have is because of other mods and or template changes that interfere with the styling.
I have a fresh Vbulletin install and never had any mods installed before this style was installed, only after and the problem was the same

If this is the case, did you make sure that all appropriate files were correctly uploaded to your server. Something might have to go wrong, I would guess.

I asked publicly for those, like myself, who may in the future make a donation for the hard work you have put into this template, but like myself, can not use paypal.
Well tbo I checked your site and on my style there's no copyright when there should be it's in the file here when you download, it's free for download and use as long as that condition is met.

As you will notice on any page you have the header (where the image is) spread across to the right which makes the website untidy.
You edited the copyright as well, shouldn't be edited and should remain intact including the link otherwise please don't use the style, it's free for download and use as long as that condition is met.

Did you try that fix I linked to earlier?

Thanks to a member of my community for pointing this post out.

I do not follow every reply to every template or modification I have installed. So without anyone sending me a quick message... I wouldn't have been aware of this post.

@TheLastSuperMan

I have A LOT of modifications and edits (over 100). And typically all my templates / skins are a signed as "child skins" to the system default. Saves on having to edit all of them one at a time.

This was obviously an oversight and you have my deepest apologies.

I assume this would go into the footer (correct?).

Could you please point me where and exactly what I should add here to restore your footer link?

Install the style again under a different name and snag the code from the footer template then you can copy/paste easily and I would post the code but to some that might seem like a excuse to promote hope you understand and thanks for realizing .

Found it.

As a point of reference for anyone else who may need to locate this.

Search for in your footer

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

Add directly below it,


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

Save and reloaded.
View in another window or browser tab and see the results.

Thank you for understanding TheLastSuperman and I again do offer my deepest apologies for the error.

Happy Holidays

^ There's no stylevar that adjusts that area you must use CSS... Not sure why it didn't work either, mind pasting a link to your site? Something is not quite right as it should have worked but once I view it myself perhaps I'll notice why it's not working correctly.

I don't know if they will even consider it but I'm going to suggest to vBulletin that they start including an additional theme to their product. Much like WP and other CMS's do.

What better theme to suggest than this one!

Hey, it won't hurt to ask

Well thanks for the sentiment however if you think about it more in detail... wouldn't that be like shipping a new PC w/ all the "bloatware" meaning not all would like this style so it should not come included as default because it's one more thing they would need to remove .

The first thing I do when buying a new pc is remove all the junk they put on it, you are right. But, what if every pc came with photo shop? Your style is far better than some of the junk I see on here. I don't mean to offend anyone but, I see styles on here and other sites that are nothing more than an added background image with a transparent body. Whenever I open a link and see that, I immediately either close the browser or hit the back button. That type of styling reminds me to much of a myspace layout.

Anyway, that's my 2 cents.
