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 .

*IMPORTANT*

To install the style:

1) Upload the contents of the UPLOAD Folder.
2) If for example you want the Fixed style installed then import the file:
*Please note, if you do not use the vBulletin Suite and have the Forum Classic version you only need to install the file vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-Forum.xml.
a) Import the vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-Forum.xml file first.
b) Merge in the vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-CMS.xml (Options when uploading a style allow you to merge into a existing style, choose to merge this into the new style you just created using the Forum.xml.
c) Merge in the vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-Blog.xml into the style, this has now updated the style for all three major products and the installation is complete!
3) Enjoy!

Yes'sir . Soon as I'm not inundated with work I'll update this to work with 4.2.3, I always do updates to free styles in my spare time and as of late with recent Holidays and New Years there has only been time off for family not much free time for el numero uno here honestly (save me ack!!!!!) so soon as I have a few free mins and I'm not already burnt out for the day I'll gladly sit down and update it .

Hello Last SuperMan help me with a question, please, as you did for notifications, logins and all are at the bottom and not on top?



I liked the way you did, it preserved the banner. I'm currently using template Ultimate Green SEO Themes.

Could you help me how to do?

Do a "search in templates" for .toplinks

It should be in the vbulletin-chrome.css template but in your custom or purchased style might be in additional.css if they've made any changes to that css class.

Change the "top:0;" to a new number then save and also refresh the forum page to see how it looks. If 10 does not work then change it to 10px (this is just to test) and see if it moves, once you see it move you can then keep entering in a new amount until it's positioned correctly.

Alternatively you can add this to additional.css template:


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

^ Same as with the other example i.e. change the 100px to a new value until it's positioned correctly.

Let me know .

I keep coming back and looking at this skin. So now that I found a ftp program that works with my hosting I want to try it.

However I have a few questions. (I came back and edited my post after I got it up and running.)
Why install in the VB images folder? Doesn't matter now.
I don't want to over write that folder so which folder in the download is the one to just park in the images folder? I figured it out.
The gap in between the VB copy right and your link is too much. How can it be pulled up so it butts up to the bottom of the VB text? Once I got it working the gap isn't really all that bad.

I like it!!! Thanks for sharing this with us. It's a really neat theme.

The image you linked to is an attachment and on your site guests can't view attachments so I can't see what area you're referring to when you say "haze in the red circle". If you'll upload to http://postimage.org/ or a similar site then post a link I'll gladly assist .

^ Ahh that is actually an effect on the gradient background, so it can't be removed (I no longer have the layered file for it, sorry!) so in order to remove it you'll need to cut a part of the left and copy it right OR create a new background image.

I was told this works fine on 4.2.3, confirmed for myself today that it does indeed work on 4.2.3. If you're installing for the first time/updating simply select "Ignore Style Version" when importing the style.xml.

Working with V4.2.4 Beta 2

Appears that the "fluid" version is working fine in vBulletin Version 4.2.4 Beta 2.
Also made logo clickable by removing the "comments" at the beginning of the header.
