Questions and Answers

Q. So what do we have here?
A. Well that's simple! It's a dark blue style for vBulletin 4.1.4 Suite (or Forum Classic).

Q. Anything in particular that I need to know about this style?
A. Simple - I don't advertise a lot, there are no advertisements shown when I make styles however I do know due to the centering of the logo, if you currently utilize the header ad locations you'll need to make changes if utilizing this style otherwise it will not display properly. *Fix planned for the 4.1.5 version and I'll patch this 4.1.4 version then as well, basically I'll be moving the header ad locations just above the normal below navbar locations to remedy this .

Q. This is 4.1.4 style why did you not release a 4.1.5 version and will you release and keep this updated unlike other styles on here?
A. Yes, unlike some other styles in the past I've released this is branded by our company and we do plan on supporting this style indefinitely.

Q. I see two different downloads available, which one do I use?
A. Simple:

- For vBulletin 4.1.4 through 4.1.7 use the file titled - Innovation_by_Instinct-Avenger_Blue-Compressed.zip
- For vBulletin 4.1.8 use the file titled - Innovation_by_Instinct-Avenger_Blue-vB4.1.8-Compressed.zip
- For vBulletin 4.2.1 and 4.2.2 use the file titled - Innovation_by_Instinct-Avenger_Blue-vB4.2.1-4.2.2-Compressed.zip

Q. I'm using a version for vBulletin 4.1.8 or up, why is the logo not clickable?
A. Well we have navtabs w/ a Home, Forum, and Blog button so why do we need more and more of the same links? Well I know some prefer it so here is a way to make it clickable:

You can utilize the transparent 1x1px transparent image to make the logo clickable again. *Please note this is not a default feature, to make the logo clickable you must edit template header and find:


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

Remove the <comment> codes as shown in red:


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

This is how the code should now look:


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

*If you use a different logo than the stock "Avenger Blue" and your making it clickable via the method above, please change the width="#" and height="#" to the correct values i.e. the same width and height as your new logo .

Q. Why is there a .zip inside the .zip?
A. Well the forums here have a max of 3.0MB file size limit on .zip files so I made it a .zip then added that one into another .zip, this reduced the file size from the 3.17MB down to 2.69MB! Now simply extract the main -Compressed .zip then extract the inside Innovation_by_Instinct-Avenger_Blue.zip and your ready to rock and roll!

Q. You have a link to your site in the footer, can I remove that?
A. You are not allowed to remove the link to our site i.e. "branding" unless you pay for a Branding Free Version. If I find someone running this without the copyright in place I will contact your host and file a DMCA complaint period the end. *Furthermore, we will not host discussions nor reply to any sort of inquiries on here in regards to paid or branding free versions so please do not bring up the subject of either in this thread.

*Click on the images below to view in a new tab/window, once in said window you can click the image again to zoom once more and see it clearer, providing a more accurate representation of the style .

a) Import the vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-Forum.xml file first.
b) Merge in the vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-CMS.xml (Options when uploading a style allow you to merge into a existing style, choose to merge this into the new style you just created using the Forum.xml.

Looks good by the way.
It's not intended to be used w/ 4.1.2 however you can try it, first thing that comes to mind is the editor templates but you'll need to test first .

You can still utilize the titleimage in stylevars via admincp and use the one you had or use Gimp as you said and find a online tutorial to guide you through things .

Edit:

Updated on 8/31/2011

- Deleted thread background color updated to a dark blue.
- Facebook Connect now has the same hover effect as the help/register links.

Nevermind Superman, thanks! The advanced editor was the issue. I've updated it and it looks good now! Though from my point of few, the editor is very bright gray (not the text box), but the background. I am unsure if this is the cause of the advanced editor addon.

Also possible the announcement color can be changed? It's very bright yellow.

You also seem to be very dedicated to this theme and supporting people who reply here. I do appreciate that .

This runs fine on 4.1.5

There are quite a few of us that do graphics.

There is also a section in the forums here for requesting help with graphics.

- Deleted post background color updated to a dark blue.



If some have customized to a certain extent already and wish to fix manually do the following:
AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Avenger Blue > StyleVars > Postbit > postbit_deleted_background > Change color to #182032

Forgive me for altering your style Not really altering, just tweaking.....

On the enclosed image I have a red arrow marking a spot between the navbar and the forum body.

I want to open that area up for an ad banner. I think it would look real sweet between the navbar and forum body.

Where do I look in the code for where this split is? So I'll know where to put the ad banner html?

As always I'm still getting a kick out of this style.

Thanks

Whenever you have a post about an upgrade does that mean you replaced the xml with a newer one?

I notice some folks are worried whether or not this style will work with 4.1.5 ? Although I am not the designer I am a user and can report that I am running this style (both fixed and fluid) on my site and have had zero problems. I won't post my link on here as I always think folks are just trying to get traffic by doing such. But, I've been a vBulletin user for 4 years now. In those 4 years I have purchased approx. 8 styles. NONE of them were as clean and visually appealing as this one. FREE!!

I run 4.1.5

I love it so much that I am putting it on top of my list for support funding Now as soon as I make any funds from my site, I'll get those checks in the mail

Look in the navbar template, scroll down and find:


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

Add your codes where the spacing is i.e.


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

Edit: Actually now that I think about it... that's more than likely where I'll be putting the normal header ads, navbar ads will remain below but should work out quite nicely imo .

Bingo, ensures it's fully up to date however most of the misc issues reported were easily fixable via the stylevars, all except the asset manager css fix a while back and I'll start noting all manual updates if not too lengthy as I just did for the postbit deleted background .

Edit: Although if you wish, you can install this modification: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=257072 and simply make note of what templates your changing, afterwards export that single template and then if nothing changes with a update well nothing in that template you can merge it back in and overwrite the new xml templates bringing your customized template back .

that seems to be a either a issue w/ Chrome itself or a flat out bug in regards to the style see attached, I get the same thing on www.vbulletin.com using Chrome so we'll wait for the official fix and in the meantime leave as it still works fine .
