Not Supported Additional Files  

Hello again, all!

This is a theme I originally created about a year ago with the intention of starting up a site selling themes. However, I found I preferred doing one-off designs for individual clients, so I dropped the idea of selling prepackaged themes.

Anyway, I figured I might as well put this one out there instead of letting it sit useless on my hard drive. I took some time to update for vB version 3.7.1 PL1 and here it is!

It's pretty much a narrow niche theme, as I don't believe this is one anyone would install on, say, a gaming forum, but perhaps it will suit someone's forum subject matter well. 99% of the graphics were created just for this theme, and the editor has been styled to match as well.

The attached screenshots of the theme are shown at a fixed width of 900 pixels. However, I've designed the skin to honor the "Main Table Width (pixels or percentage)" field in the theme's Style Manager. It will work fine at both fixed and fluid widths.

Included are PSDs for the generic logo and buttons.

________________________________________

Installation and Editing Instructions:

Extract the contents of the leather-theme.zip file.

Upload the folder named "rb_leather" which contains the theme's images to your forum's images directory on your web server.

Go to the "Download/Upload Style" section of your Admin Control Panel. Under the "Import Style XML File" section, browse for and import the leather-style.xml file. You may leave the other options at their defaults.

Per above, you can change your forum's width by editing the "Main Table Width (pixels or percentage)" field in the theme's Style Manager. Both fixed and fluid widths will work.

________________________________________

If you'd like to hire me to do additional customization to the theme (logo, additional theme changes, etc.) just send me a PM.

I hope you enjoy it and, if you do, remember to click "Mark as Installed"! If you're feeling particularly generous, a small PayPal donation would be much appreciated.

In your admincp, the option to set the default theme is in the vBulletin options under Style & Language Settings.

This is an exceptional piece of work! Right now my board is offline as I'm plannng a few changes, but I'll be using this when it's back up.

Thank you - *Installed*

. . . and since you were kind enough to share the PSD's with us, creating a post_thanks button was no big deal, so for anyone that needs it, here ya go. There's a large and a small one, so pick whichever suits you best

Brueskie seems to have disappeared, his/her website doesn't even exist any more!

I made this compatible with 3.8.0 Beta1 (only needed to revert the footer then put the custom code back in!) and would like to be able to make it available for anyone who wants it, what's the policy here on making updated skins available when the original author can't be reached? Brueskie would receive full credit as the design author of course, can I post it here as a skin for 3.8.0 Beta1?
