Forum Decor..

k this is what my website looks like...

and it seems like its too flat and boring and needs to look more animated.

I saw this site

In the red area, is there a code to make mine look like that. I really like that striped look/gloss look.
Thanks

You should make a request in your photoshop forum for someone to make an image gradient to be used as your category strip. If you look at the ones here, you can probably use the size of it and then just change your CSS for the strips to use the new one. Here is vb.orgs: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/image.../blue/tcat.jpg

Add something like this to Category Strips - Background instead of just the color:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

For the background color (XXXXXX), use the color that is at the lowest point of your gradient.

You will need to edit the .tcat value (Category Strips) in the Style Manager

more info about the Style Manager can be found in the vBulletin Manual (http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/m...ylemanager_css)

Follow this chain:

AdminCP
Styles & Templates
Style Manager
Go (for All Style Options in the style you are changing)
Category Strips (look at the titles of the major boxes)
Standard CSS options

In the Background box, remove what is there and paste this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Save
Enjoy
