vB Version: 3.7.2 Rating: (7 votes - 4.86 average) Installs: 27
Released: 23 Aug 2008 Last Update: Never Downloads: 9
Not Supported Auto-Template Additional Files  

WRATH IS COMING!!!
It's been a very long time since I have released anything on vB.org and felt I should do something again for the crew here. This time, it's a style that I've recently finished for my World of Warcraft Guild for the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King expansion release.

Unfortunately, I'm not the best on downsizing images so the style is abit big, therefore I cannot simply attach the download to this post. The download link will be at the bottom of the thread here, it is hosted on my own server that I also host my guild's website on, I know that's probably not a huge consolation for those afraid of maliciousness on the web, but it's the best I can do for you guys right now.

Assistance Requested:
Because of my lack of graphics downsizing ability I've provided the buildfiles in PNG format so that someone better than me can make the graphics work better and keep the transparencies looking good can post the fixt files, if you choose to do this I would be greatly appreciative. As it is it's close to 4 megs downloaded when the site is first loaded. If the users are using a cache on their browsers and you have your board set to not force an image reload then the hit won't be too bad, but it's still pretty heavy, so feel free to adjust the images so that the hit won't be as bad. If someone can get the images to be smaller filesize and still keep a good appearance with the style I am willing to negotiate a donation for the use of the fixed images.

What's Provided:
The theme backgrounds and CSS stylings are provided, along with the buildfiles. I have also provided dark matte vb original icons, and modified buttons that fit the theme. All of these are provided in a quick access folder that resides under the images directory so that there is no mixup with your other styles.

Very simple installation:
  1. Upload all the folders and their contents within the "Upload" directory to your forums directory keeping the tree intact.
  2. Login to your AdminCP and upload a new style and import the Wrath-style.xml from the archive.
  3. Load your forums and change the style to "Wrath".
Done.

Misc. Information:
This style is compatible with VbAdvanced CMPS, see attached images.

I would suggest that if you have made any template changes in another style that you want to keep to make this style a child of the style with the template changes.

I have tested this on 3 boards, however you use this style at your own risk. Support is will not be given as I simply do not have the time anymore, I am releasing this to the community at large because I feel there might be a want for it prior to Wrath of the Lich King Releasing.

This style was designed for a screen resolution of 1024x768 or better, and is only compatible with CSS 2.0 compliant browsers such as Firefox 3 or IE 7. I recommend using Firefox personally. This style will not render properly (the two arthas images and the page footer (the ice block) will not show up at all) if using an older browser, but it will not break the forums for those users that are behind the standards in the tests I have done thus far.

If you find a problem with the style where it will not validate, I will do my best to fix and update, but that's as far as my support of this style goes as it validates for XHTML 1.0 Transitional and CSS 2.1 on my boards and again, I simply don't have the time to dedicate to full support of the style for everyone.

As folks requested PSD format for the build files I have included both PNG and PSD format files for those that want them. When exporting to the final format make sure to export as a PNG and keep the same file names. I have split the archives so that you only download what you want.

This is hands down the best WoW theme I have seen - once I get the logo done I am making it active for my guild!

Thank you so very much for a great theme!

Users are noticing that this skin seems to run a bit chunky in IE and not as much in Firefox.

Any idea why that may be?

As I'm not yet running 3.7.3 on my site I'm not sure just yet. Once I update I'll post a redo.

Double check your image folders in the style options. Make sure it's pointing to the right folder: images/styles/wrath/buttons

As well, make sure that the image file uploaded properly, I'd try uploading that directory again just to be certain.

If the user is using IE6 or less it's going to look nasty as 6 is not fully CSS2.0 compliant. Beyond that I would need to know what specific browser/OS combination is being used and a better description (such as a screenshot) than "chunky". If you are talking about file size and time to load all the images, I've already addressed that when I posted the theme. If you are running this theme you will need to make sure that you are not forcing a reload everytime a page loads via your vBulletin options, and the users *should* be caching their images anyway, otherwise it will reload close to 4 megs of images each page load.

Great info - one question. How do I make sure that I am not forcing a reload everytime a page loads via your vBulletin options? Where is this setting in the Options? I can't seem to find it.

Thanks again!

why are there no download files?

If there aren't going to be any files available for download, shouldn't this thread be deleted?

Why are you unable to read?

If you aren't going to read anything that is posted, shouldn't you be removed from the userlist?

It's these posts that are the reason I don't click the "supported" check on anything I release anymore.

Perhaps if one learned to read, one would see there are download files available, the problem being that they are larger than 2 megs a piece which precludes me from being able to host the files here on vbulletin.org.

Would just like to thank you again for the work you put in and the support you offered by releasing PSD files. No issues in the recent upgrades either!

This is a great style I was so glad to see this posted. I was expecting to make a wrath style for my guilds website from scratch, but I ended up using this style as a base adding my own header an various graphics. The part I liked best about this style(side graphics) didn't work with my header which kinda sucked. So I wanted to say thanks an show what I ended up with. Oh an no "style by" in the footer? I think I'll still put something there anyway.

Cloudrunner,

I wanted to thank you again for all the time and effort you put into making this style, and for freely sharing it with the rest of us. I've seen other WoTLK styles and I feel that this one is by far the best. Recently, I did some of my own modifications to the base layout of the CMPS and added Joomlaworks Slideshow to my site. Feel free to check it out at http://www.kv-guild.net.


Jim
