vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (26 votes - 4.85 average) Installs: 180
Released: 11 Jan 2007 Last Update: 10 Sep 2007 Downloads: 68820
Not Supported Template Edits Additional Files  

Hello, all!

I finally decided to release a style. It is a vB 3.6.5, 951 pixels fixed width, dark blue and deep gray/black style. I developed this theme on my test installation on my PC, so unfortunately there is no live demo, but I've attached a couple of screenshots. The theme has been tested with FireFox 2.0, Internet Explorer 6 and 7, and Opera 9.0.

I tried to make it so customizing it is a relatively painless procedure. In the header template, I commented where you can add your own logo, 468x60 ad code, and customize the links (Link1, Link2, etc.).

Included in the zip file are the xml file, button PSDs and icons with a dark matting.

There is no theme copyright in the footer, or any links to any sites of mine. Please, though, do not redistribute or sell the theme.

I'll support it as time allows, and I'll do my best to keep it up to date with each new vB release. If you wish to hire me to do extra customization on it, such as develop a logo, change the buttons, statusicons, etc., just send me a PM.

Please remember to "Mark as Installed"! Bonus points if you decide to throw a donation my way.

1-12-2007:
Added the PSD for the layout to the zip file.

5-03-2007:
Added a fluid version of this style. The installation instructions are the same, except for the obvious file name differences. Additionally, the fixed version of this style has been adjusted so that you can set your logo graphic in the "Title Image" field of the style manager, instead of having to edit the header template.

9-10-2007:
Updated the .xml files for vB version 3.6.8.

Installation Instructions:

1. Unzip the "blackandblue_fixed-style.zip" file.
2. Upload the two folders, "icons" and "blackandblue" in the image directory to your forum's image directory.
3. In your admincp, click "Download/Upload Styles" under "Styles and Templates".
4. In the "Import Style XML File" section, browse for the file, "bb-fixed-style.xml" included in the zip file and click the "Import" button, leaving the rest of the options at their defaults.

Enjoy!

Very nice styles, using both of them for my site.

How do you remove the 4 links completely, I've tried removing the code but this messes up the graphics.

I'm also having a problem when I create a new thread, return to the homepage and it does not display until I hit refresh (IE and Firefox). I've tried this with the default vb style and don't experience the same problem.

Thanks,

Mark

Hi Mark,

Just open up your style manager and comment out the html in the 'LINKS' section located in the header section. Easy.

A question of my own now.

I'm having the same problem I noticed others were having with the 'Reload this page' broken img link next to the nav bar. The error goes away when I load the default template which makes me think its something missing in this template. Correct? I aimlessly tried copying the navbits_finallink_ltr.gif to the misc folder for this template but to no avail. Any ideas?

Right click on the picture/link and go to properties, it will show you where it's trying to look for the .gif file. I uploaded it there and it worked fine.

Question Some problems I think...

Hi I just downloaded and install the blackandblue_fluid-style version but if you got my site as you can see --> http://beta.furry-muscle.org/forums/?styleid=5 If you look on the far right it looks like there a missing something, I uploaded all the files to where they should go. The bottom looks like added with the black lines coming from no where. Should it look like that or I'm I missing something?

I have my forum banner image in the upper left corner. I have made several different ones and I'd like to make it so it rotates randomly when a user refreshes the page. Does anyone know how to do this? I know there is a mod to add banner rotation to the top of individual forum sections, but I'm not sure how to do it for the forum header image. Thanks.

Would you mind copy/pasting the section of code then? I tried to comment them out but it didn't work for me. I still got the wonky graphics issue.

Hello All,
I installed this style recently and it was PERFECT for the theme of my site! Good job designing this! I intend to contribute once the site starts to make a little $$.

I just changed my image in the right side header and now I have a problem in the background. The "bars" between each banner are no longer lined up. All that I did was change my image from one with sharp corners to the one that has rounded corners as you can see in the link below. Now the background is screwed up. I don't know if I inadvertently moved something or what?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
