Threaded mode in showthread.php is built into vbulletin, not a threaded forumdisplay.php.

I am really new at this and need help with the instal

These are the instructions, bellow but... I am using FTP to connect to my host server and can't find... what is "my forum directory" I am using vBulleting 3.8 that's my first "augh!" moment, after that it looks simple but might as well be greek as well for step 2, for step 3 I'll have no issues but 1 and 2... huh oh, I am in big trouble since I have never done this before. Thank you in advance for your help.

"1. Upload the contents of 'upload' to your forum directory

2. From the admincp, import the product file 'product-threadworks.xml'

3. Edit the template 'threadbit' (in the Threadbit Templates group) in the Style Manager for your active style and do the following:

a) At the very beginning of the template, add the following:
<if condition="$threadworks">$threadworks<else />

b) At the very end of the template, add the following:
</if>

c) Save your changes

4. Done"

Your forum directory is the directory that vBulletin is installed in.

Step 2 requires you to login to your admincp (administrator control panel) and go to manage products in the left side under Plugins & Products. From there import the xml file included in my zip.

These are steps you have to feel comfortable in doing on your own; I can take no responsibility for your actions.

I am having difficulties uploading the file these are the messages I get... is there a way I can just FTP the file into the correct folder on my host server like the images? product-threadworks.xml keep in mind that I am working on a mac as well if that makes a difference.

I have uploaded a new version that reduces the php dependency down to 5.0+ as 5.2 was not needed. Please download the new version.

Also, you need to import it as a product, not a plugin. Click on "Manage Products" under "Plugins and Products" and then click on "[Add/Import Product]" to import the xml file.

Thank you so much for you help and work on this, the last change did the trick and works perfectly, now I just have to make sure the images are in the right place since those don't seem to have been uploaded by me in the right folder.

All I can say is WOW, I never see anything like it and the forum participants will have to qualms moving to a new software, that did save the day

I got it and it works with the NT as well as URL and PIC .gif, this is very good. Now the only thing I would need it a way to highlight the posts and/or threads which have been viewed while viewing the forum in a Threaded Format like this. That would be the last fix required for this format in order for all participants to adopt it as well as use it, is there an easy fix for this?

And is ti possible to make the font smaller in the threaded view and if so, how do I go about it? Thank you in advance once more.

You can achieve this simply by adding the following CSS definitions:

a.threadlink {
color: blue;
}
a.threadlink:visited {
color: #551a8b;
}

You add these by going to "Styles & Templates"->"Style Manager" and editing the Main CSS for your style. Add them to "Additional CSS Definitions".

Thank you so much, that did the trick.

The only two last questions I have when you have a chance to get to it, is how to change the font size in the threaded forum view as well as the background color which differentiate the different threads and then I'd be pretty much set (I hope)

And again thank you for putting this together as well as taking the time to walk me through it all, it is greatly appreciated.

I am glad it is working for you. I plan on making the alternating background colors more configurable, but for now they rely on the alt1/alt2 css classes. However, in the current xml file I also define another color that fits our need at the moment. If you want it to only rely on the alt1/alt2 classes, you will have to edit the xml file and remove the following bit of code:

$thread_bg_color = ($thread_bg_color) ? '' : 'background-color: #eeeae8;';

Thank you I will have to get it done and try different things, as long as the forum is not officially launched I can play with the settings. So far fantastic, and the threaded view if for the users who have known only Network54 type forums, very simple with no options... as such I'd rather give them an option they are familiar with and this works.

In some of the image samples you posted, the font did not look as big as what I am seeing on my monitor once I set it to Threaded Forum View. I inserted an image below. How do I make the font smaller? What I'll do afterward is attempt match the 'light yellow' background to the main forum standard gray #E1E1E2 the light blue is perfect though.

Here is a screen capture, see how big the font is... I just have no idea how to make it smaller

The font size is currently defined by the bigusername class.

In the xml file the line of code is:
$threadworks .= "<div class='bigusername $thread_alt' style='$thread_bg_color padding: 10px'>";
