Hallo!

Congratulations for this great skin!

How would you find the idea of importing an AdRotator so when you refresh the page the background changes randomly?

I think it would be great!

What do you think?

I think something like this would slow your website down tremendously. But it's definately possible. Perhaps your looking for a different background per forum section.

I don't think that will slow down the forum because when all images loaded the first time then they will be cached by the browser, so it's not so bad.

What do you think?

Can you please also release a version with background rotator?

And one more question.
Is there any way that i can change the opacity of the thansparency?

A background rotater sounds good in theory, but I wouldn't want it. All of the colors match the background. I have customized all of my Google Adsense ads to match the background. I've customized some other things such as the Hyperlink color so that it goes good with the background. Everything looks great with the current background. Change the background to something else, and everything could look like crap..

The only way that this will work is if you select backgrounds with the same color scheme and make sure that the background looks good with the font colors, etc.

I have tried some different backgrounds out of curiosity to see what it would look like. The backgrounds ended up looking great but the site did not because the font colors, widgets, etc. did not match the background. A bunch of edits would be needed in order to make it look good.

And Dave is right. It will slow the site down tremendously. Sure, it does cache cache the page the first time that it is loaded. But what good will that do when the background changes again? It will have to cache another page. Then another. Then another. Etc. It would all depend on how many backgrounds that it will rotate.

I have a suggestion.. I have created child styles with different backgrounds, i would like to have a quick chooser for different backgrounds instead of having to add extra childs. Something user customizable. Makes it a lot easier for adding modifications with template edits. A quick chooser next to the style and language choosers.

Otherwise, this is my favorite style!

reupload all the files to the proper place. And go to maintinance/ update counters/ rebuild styles.

3 times over I must be doing something wrong!
It seems like the background is white and not transparent.
Just can't find that setting.. Other that that, seems to be ok.

*help*

But when you load an image and then another, the first image is still cached no matter if you have loaded another one.

For example, when you load the first page then it is cached.
When you load another page and then go back to the home page then it is still cached(if the web site uses cache).

Isn't happening the same thing with the images?

And can you please tell me how can i change the transparency?

I realize that.

But what I am getting at is: If it has to go through 20 different backgrounds before they are all cached, then the user will realize that this Style is way to slow and switch to something else before all the backgrounds have a chance to be cached. Because it would have to go through 20 different backgrounds before a background is actually used twice. If it rotates between 3 backgrounds, then it won't take long for them to be cached. It all depends on how many backgrounds that it rotates.

Actually i was thinking to rotate max 3-4 backgrounds.

So,can you please release a second (different) version with the background rotator?
Is it possible?

About the transparency,can you please tell me how can i change it?

Yeah background rotators is definitely possible. It would require some custom coding that I'm unfamiliar with, I'll need to do some research this weekend on it.

Version for 4.0.2 compatible is coming either today or tomorrow.

And truble, if you give me ftp access I should be able to see whats wrong. Your placing the image folder for this theme in the wrong location, thats all.

3-4 backgrounds wouldn't be too bad. But it would still be slower loading the first 3 or 4 times until all of the backgrounds are cached. I can see that potentially costing new registrations. You know what is going on and why it is going to be slower until the backgrounds are cached. However, your visitors will not know that. They will just think that your site is slow and leave without registering before all 4 backgrounds are cached. IMHO.

Yeah, I think multiple backgrounds is probably a bad idea, I'd like to experiment with the idea if I get the time. It just seems like a loading nightmare, potentially bad for SEO, as loading times can drive new registrants away...specially as newer forums get accustomed to larger population demands on the server.

It's not the same as vBseo, i have the original style and even when i looked at the 2 there are varying differences between them and unless he had access to the admincp to clone your style then in actual fact he did make this style himself.

No matter how much it looks the same he did it himself, thats like me copying vb.org yet if i coloured it etc myself then its my own work after all there are many sites like mine on the web too.
