Talking Evid Style update for Forum 4.0 and CMS

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...=217564&page=6

The Evid Green style (3.8.4) by Sofia is awesome.

Is anyone interested in updating this style so it's compatible w/ 4.0 + CMS.

This is currently what the header looks like. I might tweak it a little bit more to try to get it to match anymore if I can.

Are you still interested? I don't wanna waste too much time if you don't like it :P

That makes sense. But how do you get permission from the original author? She turned her IMs/Messages off. Otherwise I would've emailed her first.

Safe Stars - yes I'm very interested. Maybe you can just use her theme as a starting point and make it your own, so you're not breaking any rules.

I was thinking "Re-usable Code" meant you could as long as you don't use you're own copyright on it.

If it is marked as Re-usable, then the author already gives permission.

sweet.

wondering if the 4.0 forum and cms use the same style files? or are they separate?

I already have 4.0.2 forum installed, still debating upgrading to the cms (another 250 bucks *ouch*)

cant wait to see how it looks safestars!

The styles are generally the same you just have to make a few more tweaks for the CMS to match on some more defined colors.

I commend your effort in porting one of Sofias styles to vB4, she has talent in designing the skins and it is a shame that she has not logged in for some time, but that's just the way it goes.

I would reccommend getting rid of the line of transparency between the navbar and the forum body, there is an easy way to do this, but I cannot remember for the life of me what it is, I think it involved the ad_header_end hook in the header template, and a </td> tag which needed moving down. I would also recommend moving the vBulletin copyright into the body, below the footer links bar, and changing the footer text to #666666 so that it's easy to read.

Hope that helps, and I'm looking forward to seeing this released

btw, sofia is on twitter
