Not Supported Template Edits  

Retro Blue

Designed by J. Digory of Neeto.org for free use.
Included in the style are PSD/PNG files so that users of both Fireworks and Photoshop may edit the logo and add new Site Links.

There is no longer a demo version of this style, as development as stopped and my personal site has moved on to other uses. To those who used this style in the past, thank you. To those who wanted more development, I am sorry. Screenshots are available in the second post.

Bugs & Other Gnats
Myself and a few others have tested the style on both Mac and Windows using multiple browsers. Opera is the only one that ended up needing some special coding just for it, but it should be behaving properly now. But if you do find something that is not quite right, share it. I will do whatever I can to fix them in a timely manner.

Edit (1/15/06) - The included instructions do not mention that the Site Links buttons, located to the right of the logo, need to be configured. I have included a PSD and a fireworks PNG file that will allow you to easily make your own buttons for this area.

As a side note, I have made a set of smilies that are only available at my site. They go well with this style, but I have chosen to release them seperately, as by default, smilies are universal across the site. While the same is true about icons, it is my design, and I chose to do icons.

Edit (2/8/06) - I have fixed the layered logos and some images, as well as a few templates.

Edit (7/31/06) - A version for vB 3.6 has been released here.

Enjoy.

P.S. Thank you Robert, Disjunto, and Elmo, all from vbulletin-fans.com for your help in the early stages of the style.

Bunny!

These Screenshots should give an idea what the style is like, as well as show some of the unique template changes done to it.

I have to say that this is one of the better free skins I have seen released here. Most people that make skins just change the color and call it a skin. Its nice to see someone release a skin that is different from that.

Thanks,
Itworx4me

Thanks to those who have installed, and to those who have commented. It feels nice to have people appreciate the work I have done.
If someone ends up using it, I would love to see it in action.

looks great. if you increase items on the menu, does the menu box scale bigger? also, i like the rounded edges on the bar where you register. there's a lot of circles so would it be possible to round the edges where the tcat are?

*clicks install*

The tcats could obviously be rounded, but it's beyond the scope of what I had planned on doing for this style. It would not be very hard to do it though.

And yes, the menu can scale bigger. I made it capable of accepting 3 site links by default, but if you stretch the forum links above them in one row, you will have more room to fit more links. However, this would mean you would need to redo the template, as well as change the graphic.

I can do custom incarnations of the design, but I won't do them free. The time already invested in the style is a nice gift to the community, I feel.

xYarub: Thanks, man.

BrandiDup: Glad to hear. Let me know if you need any help customizing it to your site, Brandi. I am excited to see it up on a live site with a customized banner.
