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.

Glad you like it! To make it fill the entire page, just change the "Main Table Width (pixels or percentage)" setting in the style manager for the theme. Change it from 900 to a percentage such as 95% or 100%.

Glad you got it! For future reference for others who might not be sure how to change it, here is a screenshot of the field you need to change in the Style Manager in the admincp.

It looks like none of the images are showing. Double check to make sure you uploaded the "rb_leather" folder to the correct directory on your server. You should upload it to your forum's image directory. For instance, yoursite.com/forum/images/rb_leather/

Just a quick note to add that I updated the zip file with properly matted IM icons.

jlew24asu, you might want to shrink that logo image down some for this particular theme, as its height is breaking the layout.

As for centering the logo image try replacing the contents of the header template with the following code:
