Steel Blue - The first in the Steel Series from the team at vBEnhanced.com.

I will NOT provide support for the removal of features of this style. If you want to remove things, look in the relevant templates and remove them.

Customised statusicon, buttons/misc and gradients folders included.

***Additional Instructions***

vBAdvanced Users: Put nzb_greeting and nzb_greeting2 in the globalized variables section of your vBA AdminCP - Default Settings.

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:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Change these ids to the forumids of the Forums you want to display images for. (These images are not supplied. 4.gif is an example. You must make your own images.)

Further on in the same template is this conditional:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

The array contains those Usergroup ids that we do NOT want to see the Start New Thread button.

CMPS issue still can't work out why it's not working the vB default style reports the same error to the Log but the default vB style colours are correct

[Fri Sep 15 15:44:50 2006] [error] [client 62.253.128.13] File does not exist: /home/speedole/public_html/forum/images/gradients/gradient_thead.gif

it should be looking in: /home/speedole/public_html/forum/forum/

It doesn't only affect CMPS it does it here to:
http://forum.speedoleague.org.uk/for...astposter&t=99

Is this just me with these issues

What template r style thing should one use to display their homepage layout like that on the forum link you have shown above. I love the left and right columns on the homepage only. It looks like I have all that stuff on my homjepage just not in that arrangement. Any assistance on that would be much appreciated

thanks a lot :cross-eyed:

Seems to be a CMPS issue and I've found the fix

In the Style Manager for your styles change the following CSS settings:

Category Strips > Background

Set the full URL in my case

#5860AD url(http://forum.speedoleague.org.uk/for...dient_tcat.gif) repeat-x top left

Then do the same for Table Header > Background and Popup Menu Controls > Background

Ahh, yes. I have fixed this, and added viewtopic.gif

I have also added a line to the install.txt regarding uploading your existing buttons, misc and statusicon folders, choosing to skip all, to make sure you have all the required images.

Regarding postbit_legacy: I had already fixed the weird logic in that line that was fixed by Jelsoft for 3.6.1.
