Not Supported Template Edits  

Here are a few very minor enhancements you can make to your forum to make things look a little less cluttered and free up some space.

1. Remove php icon from php widgets




Open your vbcms_widget_execphp_page template.

Find:

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

2. Remove breadcrumbs from CMS:



Open your navbar template.

Note: if you have several categories that describe your website, do not remove the breadcrumbs for SEO purposes. If you have few categories that don't do much in terms of SEO, removing them will not punish you. This also removes

Replace with:

3. CMS Separator Glow

The default CMS content separator is lame, and some users have even complained that it's so unnoticeable that they don't know where an article starts or ends. Adding a glow effect fixes this problem AND makes your CMS look great. The separator is actually not a line - it's a dashed border for the top portion of each post's div element. Screenie:



This can't be done through stylevars, as they don't offer enough options (vbcms_content_separator will become obsolete).

Go to vbcms.css and find

For the first effect, change it to:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

!important is required because additional.css has a !important tag for all elements and defines no glow. I'm not sure why.

For the second effect, change it to:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

More cool effects can be achieved using the shadow technique, play around with the colors and see what you can get!

I will add more as I continue to make changes to my forums.

Well you don't touch that part of the code so technically it's not missing :P. I'll add it though.
