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 .

*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!

Looks good! Though I'm not much of a fan of the new login / menu location. I prefer that being on top. (top right).

Maybe you find a fix.
You can try:

AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Edit Templates > CSS Templates > vbulletin-chrome.css

Find:


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

Adjust the min-width in each to a larger value i.e. 325px and then refresh to see if that helps with the longer name .

^ Same problem for both of you... what I do is create all styles from scratch meaning that I use a default style of the most current version installed - I do not use the style generator at all due to noticing some misc issues w/ it in the past so one or two areas such as attachment uploads to be perfectly honest, I simply looked over because I never thought to upload a attachment but will have a fix by later today since this is supported .

That you can adjust via CSS alone so go to the css templates:

AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Edit Templates > CSS Templates > vbulletin-chrome.css

Find:


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

Adjust the top:220px to 0px or a value that will suite your tastes, the hover effect should still work fine if not let me know .

I'll make a adjustment to that as well for the release later today however for now you can fix that by:

AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Stylevars

Find the stylevar under Threadbit w/ the name threadbit_deleted_background

Change the background color to: #384b72 or another color of your choice .

Again, I'll have a update later today for the most recent notes from all of you and also going to update the facebook login in the toplinks as the hover effect is not how I want it to be, it will resemble the other hover effects making it seem as if the facebook connect image is floating in the background when hovered over before clicking .

Different folks like different things I reckon.

I personally like where the login is located. It has the appearance of integration rather that just being in it's own spot.

I just can't brag about this style enough!

IMHO it's the best free style I've EVER seen.

I am a complete sucker for styles. I have more than 30 paid styles installed on my forum. But I have to say, even if this was a paid style, I would buy it instantly. It is truly beautiful, and most definitely the best free style I have ever seen. And believe me, I have seen them all. Congrats, and thank you!!

Thanks Superman. I also wonder if it's normal that the quick edit box is completely blue with no border around the type box or its buttons.

Also, do you happen to know if there's an addon for vB that only specific groups can use specific themes?

I take what you said as - when you click to edit a post it would be nice to have a difference background around the editor? Can you post a screenshot of the area in question just so we're clear - thanks!

Edit your header template and find:

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


Remove the <vb:comment> </vb:comment> tags from the upper part of the code then delete the bottom part i.e.

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


So your left with this part of the code only near the top of the template:

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

Save and you should be good to go .
