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 .

Please Note:

Some mods for example iBProArcade has css made for light/white styles, it will require updating said css as it does not use the vBulletin stylevars within the css so sometimes, for some mods you use, a css fix will be required when using dark styles such as this one. *If you post a link to the page in question or the CSS of said modifications I will do my best to help resolve those styling issues in my spare time or in the least, lead you in the right direction so you can sort it yourself .

Using [DBTech] vBNavTabs v1 (vB4) for a secondary navbar? Is it not showing correctly? If not do the following:

1) Edit template additional.css and find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

2) In the same template i.e. additional.css also find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

3) Edit template vbulletin-chrome.css and find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

4) Now edit template navbar and find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add as shown in blue:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

*Please note I have added the following to the style= code:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

^ Due to the fact the drop-down/popupmenu items of the top navbar we showing below the secondary.

And now your secondary navbar by DBTech shows .

Issue with [OzzModz] Style & Language Selector In NavBar?

Ok so in the mod options ensure you have this set to no:

Auto Deploy
Setting this to "Yes" will make the style & language selectors show in the navbar.

Set this to "No" to be able to use the variable, {vb:raw show.ozzmodz_style_lang_chooser} in your templates, to make it show where you want.
Then edit template ozzmodz_style_lang_chooser and find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.



Now in additional.css add this just below the .abimage css definition:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.



Now in template header find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


That should sort it .

TY TY - I was hoping it would help some who just don't settle well w/ black themes... meaning that it's still dark just a blue instead of grey/black-ish per say. The beautiful thing about vBulletin? You can install many styles so always bear in mind that some of your users may in fact love a style you dislike and well vice-versa as well .

Now that I've installed and played around with this style. I like it even more. The only thing I altered was increasing the width of the style to better accommodate my custom header image.

Great style!
Thanks again.

Add this to additional.css:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


You specifically asked for the orange color, anyone else may want a silver/grey so in the next revision it will be this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


I felt the light blue I used around forum descriptions was too light but still debating that however feel free to use either or include your own color using RGB or hex etc example:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

^ Would make it a white border .

Now for the online/offline... what did you mean by that, the users online/offline little images?

Thanks again.
Glad to hear you like it Gary, enjoy!
