vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (7 votes - 4.86 average) Installs: 39
Released: 07 Feb 2011 Last Update: Never Downloads: 259
Not Supported Re-usable Code Translations  

Hello, all.

My users rebelled when they saw the colour scheme in the vB4 Default style, and, try as I might, any styles that I generated with the Style Generator garnered comments such as "It looked good once I had blinded myself." That may be more a comment on my abilities than the utility of the Style Generator, though.

Since my vB3 styles and templates were no longer compatible with the vB4 suite, I tweaked 31 colours from the default template to create a more vB3-like colour scheme. This XML should work with any version of vB4, and you can easily read what I changed (although the values are only accessible to you once you have uploaded it).

Given my users' response to the 4.1.1 upgrade, I suspect that I will be maintaining this, if required, throughout the 4.x series.

If you are new to vB4's style management, you need to import the attached XML file in Styles & Templates > Download / Upload Styles > Import Style XML File in your Admin Control Panel. Save the XML to your computer, then browse to it to upload it. You want to Create a New Style and set its Parent Style to the vB4 Default Style. You may need to say "Yes" to Ignore Style Version, which you can safely do as I am only changing a few colours.

It should, as it modifies long-standing colour variables.

However, I will post, again, after I have updated my board to the latest release.

If you want to try it before I do, it can do no harm to be imported as a child style and tested.

4.1.7 - seems everything is fine. 4.1.8 will require some tuning I think due to new style vars.

I upgraded VB from 4.1.7 to 4.1.8 and did not have any flags for this style, so it is OK (I assume).

What did you change, exactly? I can try it out and include it in an update (after I upgrade my board to 4.1.9... ).

I just changed the bars as shown to all match, i thought the blue on the forum headers was a bit loud and in your face, you did a great job on the simple skin changes.

I think that I see what you did: you "toned down" the dark blue to match the other blue.

Did I get that right?

As soon as I update my board, I will see if the "major overhaul" touches anything in this style. Sorry for the delay!
