I'm glad to hear that. Drop me a line at http://digitaldeviation.com/contact.

I've been looking at offering two versions when I release it for 4.0. Haven't quite made up my mind on that though.

What do you do with vbulletin style.xml. Just upload it as a product? And what about .txt files?

Can someone please help with this?

Thanks.

Fabian,
Did you take a look at the instruction at http://digitaldeviation.com/document...tion-guide/20x ?

The vbulletin-styles.xml is a simple way to make the template changes. You import that in your admincp. Look under Styles & Templates --> Download/Upload Styles.

There are no txt files required for this. Only the files contained in the upload folder need to be uploaded to your server.

I recently installed this on my site.

I still using vb3.8.6 because we have a very customized skin, that is not very compatible with vb4.0

And I was able to get this plugin to work perfectly, by manually adding the info found on your website.

If I try importing the vbulletin-style.xml, even tho it is for vb3.8.6, it causes my forums to be all throw in together, no catergories, thank god for REVERT changes!

Anyhow, the only problem I am having is, when someone clicks on the link, it takes them of course to the link.php file, and it does redirect them after a few seconds.

But during the screen display, I get this error message:

Could not find phrase ''.

Any help in getting this right, would be most welcome!

Do Not import the style.xml file on 3.8 if your skin is custom. I did this and now lost my custom skin style. Rather do it manually.

For those who accidentally upload the style xml, revert your forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost . This is where those nice category dividers are.

I cannot get this to work and have tried numerous edits to link.php . Most of us do not have lines listed in notepad, but I have found the area we are supposed to edit. Strange is I see no branding at the bottom of my forum, is this a possibility as to why it is not working?

Thanks

I even looked through every thread dating back to rev. 3.6 . It seems most people are having the same problem I am.

I am getting the same message

When I click the banner, I am getting the following messge...

Redirecting...


Could not find phrase ' '.

Click here if your browser does not automatically redirect you.
But then it redirects ok...anyone know what could be causing the Could not find phrase message?

I got this with the previous version as well...

EDIT: I think it's related to this part of the link.php...I'm too much of a novice to know how to fix it but maybe one of the gurus here can help? It seems like a fairly simple thing..
