vB Version: 4.0.3 Rating: (9 votes - 4.89 average) Installs: 43
Released: 09 May 2010 Last Update: 07 Jun 2010 Downloads: 343
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.

Small help pls, think that this is stylevars but not shure what to change

Need to put more shade/darken parts around login-help-register...area on top right
Something as on attached pic

Thank you

Edited:
Ok was looking how to darken those parts mentioned above, but only reason for that was issue with area around log in-register-help ...
Check pictures attached, note blue parts on second picture
Edited again:
That looks like a bug, its even on your site (when I log in=bug, log out=ok)

Hi,
I cannot see what you are referring to. The modification itself sits in a DIV which is behind all other elements. The only element the modification does cover if you use full header images is the actual header_background color. This is set to show through the header swf using transparency.

The flash header on my site is not the same as this modification, it uses customized flash animation and no header image imports, apart from the banner rotator.

He is talking about the framing of the UN PW Notifications etc... That is his VB, not this header.

When you log in, the background, hover color, and framing of these areas change. The fact that not being logged in and having this header shows what he wants proves the issue is with his style and not this header.

Another question. Since the files are uploaded on the main. How can I have the 950 and the 1280 running so I can have two styles to choose from for my members who have different sized monitors?

Well Iam having this issue after this hack is installed, love this flash header and would not like to remove it from my site. But would like to resolve this and have same looks as before regarding to top right area (log in log out...buttons are not the same, depending are you loged in or not)
This part can be hard to see if one of images for flash header is bright, also there is NO round corners even under style which I do not use for this flash header, exactly as on your forums, same 'problem'....is it cause changes in stylevars you mentioned in first post here?
If so I changed those just under one style, not another one for my forums (using this mod just for my main page-CMS)

Pardon my bad english

Hi,
Each version will carry a resolution prefix, therefore if you wanted to install all 3 versions you could, none of the headers will interfere with each other. You can already change image directory name, but not the XML files, this has changed in next 2 versions.

You are NOT having this issue AFTER this hack was installed. You had this issue BEFORE this hack was installed. As does just about every copy of VBulletin 4 being used. The problem is with VBulletin. 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 wanted the same thing which is why i know what you are asking. I still do not have a clue, firebug showing the CSS for both is not helping me.. If I get it figured out i will let you know.

Syrus.xl sorryz, this mod is not causing this issue... must say that I was
"shocked" finding out that this is default with Vb4
Never noticed before this, after installing this neat mod I was looking more and more my beautifull header /and my log in area/ and than .... lol

x626xblack thanks for trying to help, but there is no help on this... maybe some custom work or whatever...its beyond me as a noob when it comes to vb
