vB4 Blue

Developer Last Online: Jun 2016 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.8 Rating: (25 votes - 4.60 average) Installs: 231
Released: 26 Dec 2009 Last Update: 17 Oct 2010 Downloads: 1836
Not Supported  

Now updated to vB 4.0.7 as labeled in the new download

Here's a skin I am sort of modeling off of vb.org here, I am using threadmarkers from Shelley_c http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=229462 (mostly because I am just not that fond of the huge images they are using in 4).

Preview Here

To install go to AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Download / Upload Styles > Import style XML file and browse for vb4_blue-style.xml and import it. Upload the images to your forum root images folder, so it should be forum/images/vb4_blue.

Q&A
Q: How do I enable the side blocks?
A: Admin CP > Settings > Options > Forum Sidebar and Block Options. You must also go to Forums & Moderators > Forum Blocks Manager and add your blocks before it will work.

Q: I don't have a CMS, will this still work for the forum only?
A: Yes.

Q: It's working for the forum but not the CMS?
A: Login from the front end, use the pencil icon and change the theme to the new style instead of default style.

Anything 4.0.2 or below please download vB4_Blue.zip

What errors? I'm using it on 4.03 with no issues.

You need to revert your templates.

How does this style work with 4.0.4? I am running this style on 4.0.3, do I need to do anything after upgrading to 4.0.4 in order to get everything right?

awesome style, love it!
but is it working with 4.0.7?
I need it for 4.0.7 because it seems that there are some style issues, maybe i did it wrong?

the style of the forum main page is totally screwed.

I just updated this to version 4.07, and for whatever reason it breaks the "What's New". When I use the default style everything is fine, and my what's new appear properly.

Any thoughts? All I get using this style is "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms."


Incidentally, to upgrade I selected "merge into", not new style. Edit: I tried both installation methods and both ways this style's What's New is broken. I reinstalled the old vb4 and What's New is fine.

Hi WF, thanks for the feedback. I show that the "What's New" link goes to /search.php?do=getdaily&contenttype=vBForum_Post that's also the same as they use on vbulletin.com. Can you see if it's the same on your old vb4? If not, we can always replace the link on vb4 blue with the one that works.

Hi ericgrt...

Thanks for the quick reply. My link points here:

Looks like the difference is the "daily" versus "new" in the do=

Okay, you will find those in the navbar template if you do a search for do=getdaily and replace them with do=getnew I remember having to mess with this before because getdaily wasn't working for me, seemingly the opposite of your issue. Hopefully this will resolve it for you. Besides this were there any other issues, layout, etc?

There don't seem to be any other issues otherwise. I'm thinking I noticed this issue in particular because I've not been at my site for a couple of days and by the time I installed this update I had already read today's (ie daily) posts.

Anyway...there are 14 "getdaily" references in the navbar, but some refer to {vb:rawphrase's "today" as a variable. My suspicion (in looking at the default template) that "new" and "daily" are certainly very different things.

I changed only 9 of the do=getdaily to do=getnew (anything relating to "new" in the subsequent {vb:rawphrase

Another thing I noticed...since the update, my postbit legacy spacing was back to the default...where the signature appeared below the postbit block, rather than the post.

I'm not sure if that's a coincidence or not, but it seemed to ignore / erase the additional.css change I made to fix this.

I've since edited the default postbit.css as explained here...everything seems to be fine now.

Has anyone with this skin updated to vb 4.08? Are there any compatibility issues?
