vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (26 votes - 4.85 average) Installs: 180
Released: 11 Jan 2007 Last Update: 10 Sep 2007 Downloads: 68820
Not Supported Template Edits Additional Files  

Hello, all!

I finally decided to release a style. It is a vB 3.6.5, 951 pixels fixed width, dark blue and deep gray/black style. I developed this theme on my test installation on my PC, so unfortunately there is no live demo, but I've attached a couple of screenshots. The theme has been tested with FireFox 2.0, Internet Explorer 6 and 7, and Opera 9.0.

I tried to make it so customizing it is a relatively painless procedure. In the header template, I commented where you can add your own logo, 468x60 ad code, and customize the links (Link1, Link2, etc.).

Included in the zip file are the xml file, button PSDs and icons with a dark matting.

There is no theme copyright in the footer, or any links to any sites of mine. Please, though, do not redistribute or sell the theme.

I'll support it as time allows, and I'll do my best to keep it up to date with each new vB release. If you wish to hire me to do extra customization on it, such as develop a logo, change the buttons, statusicons, etc., just send me a PM.

Please remember to "Mark as Installed"! Bonus points if you decide to throw a donation my way.

1-12-2007:
Added the PSD for the layout to the zip file.

5-03-2007:
Added a fluid version of this style. The installation instructions are the same, except for the obvious file name differences. Additionally, the fixed version of this style has been adjusted so that you can set your logo graphic in the "Title Image" field of the style manager, instead of having to edit the header template.

9-10-2007:
Updated the .xml files for vB version 3.6.8.

Installation Instructions:

1. Unzip the "blackandblue_fixed-style.zip" file.
2. Upload the two folders, "icons" and "blackandblue" in the image directory to your forum's image directory.
3. In your admincp, click "Download/Upload Styles" under "Styles and Templates".
4. In the "Import Style XML File" section, browse for the file, "bb-fixed-style.xml" included in the zip file and click the "Import" button, leaving the rest of the options at their defaults.

Enjoy!

Excellent! I've been keeping my eye open to see if you'd release some of your work. Will install soon!

Thanks.

Replace that bit of code with this:

That will allow you set to set the logo in the Title Image field in the style manager.

Installed on my board (www.houston-dsm.org/forums) and it looks/works great in IE6 and IE7... but Firefox users are having trouble with the navbar.

Screenshot from a FF user is attached... any ideas?

Edited to add: The user who took the screenshot is on FF 1.5. I realize the style was tested in 2.0. Is there a fix so this will work in FF 1.5, or do I get to tell my user his browser is outdated and he's SOL?

Edit 2: I also have a FF 2.0 user telling me it's doing the same thing for him.

That's odd. Do you have any plugins installed which affect navbar functionality?

I have iTrader, vB Banner Rotator (by frapegliko), and your style installed. That's it as far as mods go. I don't believe any of those should affect the navbar. vB 3.6.4

In fact, users are telling me that with this as my board's default style, there is no way to log in when the page is viewed in Firefox.... see below:

It does not show me anyplace to log in, or view the forum. I thought the board was down, but just now I tried opening the site in IE, and it works.

Can the page just not be viewed in Firefox?

This is what I see when I go to this page in Firefox.



(after one of the other users suggested that he change to the standard vB style to log in):
