NO LONGER SUPPORTED!!!!!
The most advanced vBulletin 4.0 header system ever released so far, with built-in banner rotator (optional). This is a product that we are giving away freely to the vBulletin community, even though it was originally designed as a commercial product. It includes everything to give you a sleek and stylish flash-based header system for the vBulletin 4.0 series. This product was released for vBulletin 3.0 series; however we had many asking for a version for vB4, so here it is with many improvements and we added many more functions to this version. This product comes in two versions, one with an advertising banner rotator built-in and one without, giving you full control of how you want to implement it on your own vBulletin. It does not use any of vBulletin 4.0’s advertising system, nor query your database or require product plugins.



Demonstrations Available
Shedevils Leisure District - The Front Page
Also available is our own demonstration - Go to www.digitalport.co.uk and scroll down to the footer on any page under Style Chooser -> Select "Concepta Series" to view. Remember to switch back to our default style afterwards.

Released: 06/07/10
1280 version Added
- see download attachments on this mod (Wide 1280 pixel version) v1.0.1280a

XML Configuration Files
Due to the setup procedure being quite complex we have made most of the configuration details available online only. This is to allow you to jump to the areas you need to configure in detail, this guide will give you the basic installation procedure, to setup vBulletin to use this modification. We have provided links to the relevant sections that cover the XML configuration. For best results always optimize any images, this will ensure the pre-loaders will only show for a short time, if at all.

Preview setup files included
These allow you to setup the header system locally before adding it your vBulletin, however we do not recommend that you upload these files. Use them for testing only.

*Fixed width Forums only – the only reason why we stipulate this is due to the way flash functions. This product is designed for a 950 pixel width and a 150 pixel height; you will find how to adjust your forum to this fixed width by reading the Additional Stylevars section of this guide.
**Fluid forum setup - Should you wish to use it on a fluid forum then we recommend that you use a fade to alpha on your background images, this will still allow you to use this modification, but not to its full capacity.

Features:
  • Import your logo and place it anywhere within the header (requires no coding knowledge to setup)
  • Import numerous backgrounds with numerous load and unload transitional effects
  • Imports your 468 x 60 pixel banner adverts with support for PNG, JPG and SWF file formats (banner rotator version only)
  • Over 80 transitional effects, each banner can use these on a single banner or you can set to randomize all banners
  • Pre-loads all images ‘on-the-fly’ and caches them therefore using very low bandwidth consumption
  • Package includes pre-loaded images and banners and pre-configured (change as required). Full documentation in Word, PDF and text formats.

Important – Before uploading anything:

Please read on how to setup the vB Flash Header System locally, this will help you see what the header will look like before installing it on vBulletin. The previewer files are for setup purposes, they contain documentation as well to allow you to view your header before uploading.

Cool 1440 Version (Preview)

The Extended Version (1440 pixel width)
Here's a screenshot of the new 1440 version, for wider forum widths. It will be available with and without the banner rotator, like the original version. The documentation for this version will be in the package only, because it is only a width size that has changed.

Available soon...

** Please note the preview is not the actual size, it has been resized by vBulletin.org.**

2 new version planned...

1440 Version...??? Please read

After making alterations to the header in whole, I have now realized that a 1440 width will actually break a style and cause side-scroll on a 1440 width monitor. You can see the issue by viewing the '1440 Concepta demo' on the style changer at www.digitalport.co.uk I could just set the embed code to resize to different ratios, but this may cause issues with text with anyone using the version with the banner ad rotator.

Therefore, tomorrow I am planning to reduce the width and take into consideration padding and browser scrollbar widths. What this will achieve is that the product will become available to suit in 3 different sizes;
  • Standard 950 pixel width (Standard Edition)
  • Medium Edition (for 1280 resolution monitors)
  • Extended Edition (for 1440 resolution monitors)
This will stop the header breaking out on wider width monitors, e.g. laptops, etc. I do not want to cause side scroll on users forums, which is a sign of bad design. Even with all these new designed widths, anyone that has purchased the brand-free version will be able to download all 3 versions in a single download from our website. The package will updated once the new versions have been released on here.

If you already installed this product, there will be just a few changes you will need to make, the embed code will have new widths, the swf file will be need to be replaced and of course your background images will need to be slightly larger in width. The actual widths will be calculated from the forum padding, scrollbar width and browser surround.

Sorry, about the delay, but it is better to have a product that works first time than to keep changing afterward.
