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 .

Login area is caused by your logo being too large for this style, resize your logo a little smaller and watch it come back .

As for the backgrounds you need to read back in the thread, fixes are listed for now until the update is released .

Have you not tried it yet? Only reason I ask is, it's not a modification that can break your forum and if it works then fantastic, if not simply delete the style.

*It should work fine on 4.1.7 if not let me know and I'll update asap .

Hey TheLastSuperman!

First of all thank you for this incredible skin, it's totally awesome.

One question, tho: the logo and the height of the upper (header?) part are a bit small for our page, so I've tried to expand it. Our logo is 51px taller than yours, so I also expanded the upper part of the background for 51px. Everything would align nicely, except for this, which stays where it is, instead of going lower as everything else:



Is there any way to push this a bit downwards as well or are we just gonna have to do with the default logo height?

Thanks!

That screenshot says 1920 x 1118px yet I only see a 190 x 163 and it's hard to see exactly what your talking about - do me a favor and attach one I can see a bit better?

Sorry, this forum doesnt seem to allow linkable pictures, it just opens the same picture instead of the link.

Here's the actual full-size picture:

That will solve most of the profile styling issues but the other areas may still revolve around profile customization. I also noticed in another thread you stated that you have all Dark styles currently disabled until you figure this out? Try that same code in those dark styles of course replacing the #222937 background colors respectively and it may solve most if not all of your CSS issues .
Love this style, thanks for taking all this time with it. With regards to the above code, can you be more specific about where it goes? Are you saying to paste the line of code "---new CSS definitions---" under the block big block of code in the xml file? Or to add the big block of code under the line of code ("---new CSS definitions---") in additional.css file?

EDIT:: I pasted this in to additional.css both above and under the original code after the "---New CSS Definitions---" line. Above the original code did make one of the sidebars (the one that contains the avatar and some user info) begin to work. Still nothing in the user fields, though. Any other advice?


Thanks!

Does anyone else have a problem with the white blocks in the User Profile sections? If so, any solution?

Anyone running a dark style such as this has the same problem. I've tried and tried to find a solution but no one has a remedy. It would be easy to fix if I knew the .css to change for those blocks but, I haven't received an answer to that question from anyone.

Good luck

I've tried tweaking (I think) every single css that I could find that dealt with those blocks as I interpret the code. I'm no programmer (really), but I'm at a loss. This style is so good otherwise, I really hope that this isn't a tragic flaw.
