To be honest, not really. I purposely did not check the "Supported" box on this because I recently started a new job and have several other projects currently ongoing. I do have a list of the templates that are NOT default. The style should work fine with v3.5.3 but you will have to make any updates manually to the small group of templates that are listed to be 100% compliant.

That's wierd. It looks like something may have happened with some additional CSS code being removed or something. Later tonight I will install this on my test forum and take a look.

My site forums are installed in /forums, I have a gallery installed in /gallery and VBAdvanced CMPS in the root.

I've been using this style for a while now and I've very happy with it.

After sorting out the header replacements so that the links in the 'quick links' drop down work I have the following problem.

In the 'Quick Links' drop down the 'Buddy List' option only works if I'm currently viewing the forum.

If I'm viewing CMPS or Gallery I hust get a 404 error.

If I switch back to the default style it works fine.

Can anybody help with this?

Hi there,

How can I "erase" the white bar behind the logo?

Sorted out my problem

I've managed to fix my problem with the "Buddy List" in the quick links drop down.

It might be obvious to the hardened coders, but I'm a complete newbie so it might not be the best way to fix the problem.

If anybody else has the same problem this is what I did.

I noticed that the drop down calls misc.php, in either my Vbadvanced page or the Gallery page misc.php couldn't be found becuase it in /forum

Adding misc.php to the header replacement didn't work for this (it works for the restof the options in the drop down)

So I edited the header template, search for 'Buddy List', and modified the path there to /forum/misc.php

Job done.

Crest, the white bar behind the logo can be changed by editting one of the CSS options, sorry not sure which one. I know this because I have changed a lot of them to make a 'Red 2 Grey' style as some of my older members have trouble reading light text on black backgrounds. HTH

Quick Stupid Question

Hey All,

Had a question about this style that I've been wondering for a while and now my users are asking as well. Is there a way to have links underlined and if so, what would I need to do for them to be there?

Alot of my users, as well as me, love this style, but don't want to have to move their mouse all over the place to figure out what the links are.....

Thanks for any replies in advance,

Hi all, I am trying to add a new button in the navbar and insert this bit of code from the V3 arcade hack.
<!-- v3 Arcade -->
<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="arcade.php$session[sessionurl_q]">Arcade</a></td>
<!-- /v3 Arcade -->
I managed to find out where to add it on the 3.0.7 version but i am at a loss where to find it with this version. Normally i try and look for pointers ie the href for usercp and new posts etc but i cant find them atall
please help.

In the Style Manager, Click on Edit Templates, then Navigation / Breadcrumb Templates. Then click navbar. Place your code after the </td> for one of the main links ie: Member List

return true;
ht[0].style.filter = "";
return false;

Never mind, i found it in the header templates although it does not show when you search templates. What gave me the the clue was a view source and i could then see where it was placed.
I hope this helps for others.
