Change the date in YYYY,MM,DD format.

To change the greetings that appear in the navbar,

Have a look in your Steel Style - Navbar Greeting plugin.

To have the Forum images show up for selected forums

Go into your forumhome_forumbit_level*_post templates (both level1 and level2) and look for the condtitional that reads:

great template!!! Just installed, two basic questions though...

1. Purple Fill?

When my site loads slowly, I see "purple" before the category strips load??? When I look in the template, I do not see the purple anywhere??? Any ideas? I would simply like the background of the category strips to be closer to the "teal" blue...

Anyone else figure this out?

2. Greeting?
Also where do I actually find the NavBar Gretting plugin? Can't find in Pluigins, or in my style???

To change the greetings that appear in the navbar,
Have a look in your Steel Style - Navbar Greeting plugin.

I love the style and had great luck with the 3.5 version. I just upgraded my forums, hacks, etc. and uploaded this style. For whatever reasons some of the things I had no problem with before, I am having trouble with in this version.

1) The navbar and category strips have different coloring and gradients on my cmps than they do on my forums, and links pages (navbar appears purple).

2) When viewing a thread, my linkbacks dropdown menu only shows two options rather than displaying the digg, delicious, furl, and other links.

3) Certain things show up quite different in IE than they do in Firefox (mainly cmps recent threads module).

Also, I was wondering if anyone knows how to move my vbseo copyright underneath the vbenhanced copyright to balance out the footer a bit. If anyone can help with any of these issues I would certainly appreciate it. The website I am currently working on is TheMoneyPost.com. Thanks in advance, Brady.

Hi Brady,

Thanks for the compliments.

1. Did you go into your style manager and update all of the image paths (including the gradient urls) to be Fully Qualified (eg: instead of /images/steelblue/gradients/gradient_tcat.gif - http://www.themoneypost.com/forums/i...ent_tcat.gif)?

2. You need to add something to the template for the vBSEO links. Please ask over at www.vbseo.com.

3. I don't know why that would be happening.. best to ask at www.vbenhanced.com.

4. You sure can move the vbeso copyright, just follow the instructions in the vBSEO install readme, insert the copyright code snippet where you want it to go, and it will go there.
