Not Supported Template Edits Additional Files External Content  

NO LONGER SUPPORTED!!!!!
The most advanced vBulletin 4.0 header system ever released so far, with built-in banner rotator (optional). This is a product that we are giving away freely to the vBulletin community, even though it was originally designed as a commercial product. It includes everything to give you a sleek and stylish flash-based header system for the vBulletin 4.0 series. This product was released for vBulletin 3.0 series; however we had many asking for a version for vB4, so here it is with many improvements and we added many more functions to this version. This product comes in two versions, one with an advertising banner rotator built-in and one without, giving you full control of how you want to implement it on your own vBulletin. It does not use any of vBulletin 4.0’s advertising system, nor query your database or require product plugins.



Demonstrations Available
Shedevils Leisure District - The Front Page
Also available is our own demonstration - Go to www.digitalport.co.uk and scroll down to the footer on any page under Style Chooser -> Select "Concepta Series" to view. Remember to switch back to our default style afterwards.

Released: 06/07/10
1280 version Added
- see download attachments on this mod (Wide 1280 pixel version) v1.0.1280a

XML Configuration Files
Due to the setup procedure being quite complex we have made most of the configuration details available online only. This is to allow you to jump to the areas you need to configure in detail, this guide will give you the basic installation procedure, to setup vBulletin to use this modification. We have provided links to the relevant sections that cover the XML configuration. For best results always optimize any images, this will ensure the pre-loaders will only show for a short time, if at all.

Preview setup files included
These allow you to setup the header system locally before adding it your vBulletin, however we do not recommend that you upload these files. Use them for testing only.

*Fixed width Forums only – the only reason why we stipulate this is due to the way flash functions. This product is designed for a 950 pixel width and a 150 pixel height; you will find how to adjust your forum to this fixed width by reading the Additional Stylevars section of this guide.
**Fluid forum setup - Should you wish to use it on a fluid forum then we recommend that you use a fade to alpha on your background images, this will still allow you to use this modification, but not to its full capacity.

Features:
  • Import your logo and place it anywhere within the header (requires no coding knowledge to setup)
  • Import numerous backgrounds with numerous load and unload transitional effects
  • Imports your 468 x 60 pixel banner adverts with support for PNG, JPG and SWF file formats (banner rotator version only)
  • Over 80 transitional effects, each banner can use these on a single banner or you can set to randomize all banners
  • Pre-loads all images ‘on-the-fly’ and caches them therefore using very low bandwidth consumption
  • Package includes pre-loaded images and banners and pre-configured (change as required). Full documentation in Word, PDF and text formats.

Important – Before uploading anything:

Please read on how to setup the vB Flash Header System locally, this will help you see what the header will look like before installing it on vBulletin. The previewer files are for setup purposes, they contain documentation as well to allow you to view your header before uploading.

Basic Installation

Upload all contents of either the "vB Flash Header no Ads" or the "vB Flash Header with Ads" folder to vBulletin forum root.
Please follow our links to configure the various areas of this modification in detail. Instructions vary on which version you are installing and configuring.

This mod has done nothing to your log in area. This is a part of your style "you" are going to have to address. I explained that to you in my first reply.

Syrus I will post images because I know what he is talking about.

He wants the rounded background to show around the username, My Profile, Log Out, Settings, Notifications as it is before you log in.. Look at the rounded boxes in the first image for Username, Password, Help and Register.... He wants those around the info in the second image...
I'm not currently using this mod but a simple solution would be just to add a rounded rectangle to your images. Mod author could add some psd files but I'm sure anyone using this mod should be able to do it.

Example

The header Logo is just the Logo.. Not the Log in panel. No Ohio, the images have nothing to do with what Goxy is asking. Goxy's question/need/want has nothing to do with Logo Image or this header or its images.

Yes thats right, but main thing that bugs me is if bright pictures are in flashheader, so editing logo and placing some suitable darker colors around log in area would maybe do the thing /visibility of info in log in area is my main problem here/

Perhaps this would suffice your issue. What I have done is this:
I have added an area to the logo layer, so it shows behind all image and text in the login area.

Same thing I have done. I do like how your took yours all the way to the edge of the image. It's not perfect but it's a very simple solution versus rewriting part of vbulletin-chrome.css

This week I will be releasing the 1280 version - the actual width is 1180 pixels wide, which takes into account browser scrollbars and vBulletin padding.

I got behind on the update, due to a self-inflicted back problem! I guess trampolines and me just don't mix at my age!
