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 .

*IMPORTANT*

To install the style:

1) Upload the contents of the UPLOAD Folder.
2) If for example you want the Fixed style installed then import the file:
*Please note, if you do not use the vBulletin Suite and have the Forum Classic version you only need to install the file vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-Forum.xml.
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.
c) Merge in the vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-Blog.xml into the style, this has now updated the style for all three major products and the installation is complete!
3) Enjoy!

I have an issue where the little icons in the post editor no longer show up in this style. They DO in the default. I'm running 4.1.10. Any ideas?

There is no version for the VB you are running. He's working on it.

Cool

I'm so close it hurts! Over the past week or two I've had time to:
  • Update the 4.1.8 version fixing many previously reported issues.
  • Created a 4.1.9 version from the 4.1.8.
  • Created a 4.1.10 version from the 4.1.9 (obviously with some fixes and it's still pending review plus some new adjustments for 4.1.10 version only ).

Once the 4.1.10 version is reviewed I'll be making a 4.1.11 version as well however here soon there will be a delay as I completely re-write this from scratch although I'm thinking of waiting until 4.1.12 or the one after before that's done.

Special thanks to everyone for being so patient, I'll try my best to release the 4.1.8 update, the new 4.1.9 and 4.1.10 versions this week .

Question Quick 4.1.11 release possible

Thanks for the status .

Is it not possible to make a "quick release" (without rewriting everything) of your style, for vBulletin Version 4.1.11? I really like your Style but I can't wait any longer... in "consequence" I had to choose another style, altough I havn't found a better style than yours (until now) .

Hmm I don't see why you could not try the 4.1.10 version, it *should* work fine with 4.1.11 and you can simply report any bugs in this thread and I will address them accordingly.

The total re-write I'm not looking forward to honestly because it's quite a bit of work therefor I don't want to do that until 4.1.12 or higher is out but long story short I feel it's best to re-write a style from scratch every so often instead of trying to sort through countless template/stylevar/changes this way there's no question that it's a solid release without issues.

Ahh what a shame I wanted to install this style as it looks good but since it's not compatible with 4.1.11, I guess ill choose another style then

Whats the rush guys? As soon as it's updated there will be a vb update more than likely. And then we start all over waiting for another style update.

It looks to me like vb is focusing more and more on the mobile stuff so, I'm going to stop updating my style every time a new version comes out. It's just a losing battle to try to keep caught up on style versions.

I have decided in my case I'm going to start only updating my vb and whatever style I choose to every 6 months.

If I had a super slick style to maintain such as Superman has, I would announce that there will be an update every 6 months.

This is of course my opinion
