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 .

Superman you really knocked it out of the park with this one! Wow!!

Couple of issues I am having.;
One is I use DB shoutbox and the editor tools are lining up vertically instead of horizontally.
All other styles line up fine.

Secondly, a lot of the block backgrounds on some of my mods are white. An example is the media section. See attached.

How can I rectify these two issues. Thanks.

Well I'll be Bravo Tango'd CharlieDelta those are whiter than my printer paper

Do me a favor and either post a link to those areas on your site so I can view the css via firebug OR PM me the links either or . Edit: And Charlie which shout/chatbox mod is that... Valter's or DB Tech's ?

Also everyone please remember that some mods (this may or may not be the case w/ your issue CharlieDelta simply stating to everyone atm) for example iBProArcade has css made for white styles, it would require updating as it does not use the stylevars in it's css so yes sometimes, for some mods you use, a css fix will be required when using dark styles.

Check your PM's, I listed a few things to check for and the rest simply need to be reviewed on the fly and sorted, if it were not so many and so much to review I would simply post but easier imo to have someone come in and simply fix it promptly .

Thanks Superman,
You lead me in the right direction.
I made one change to your blockrow_background stylevar from white to #222937 and it fixed all the mods. I noticed the media css was using
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Any thoughts on the editor tools alignment?

I'll update that accordingly for the next release and thanks for the helpful tip! Per my PM that stylevar was previously set to "none" in your version correct? And where are you referring to when you say "tools alignment" ?

That is a negative it was set at RGB(255,255,255) or white.

See my origional post there are two attachements for the editor tools in DBT shout box. I noticed it with all editors for pm's, posts, etc. I think it may have to do with the fact that I am running 4.1.3????

Hmm in my version it was set to none do me a favor and check the new .zip, upload the new style under a different name and ensure your mods look ok and let me know?

- Blockrow background color updated - Thanks for the catch CharlieDelta!
- Sidebar and Widgets now match 100%, forum sidebar has separation between each sidebar block!

Seems that with any add on that makes a new page (ie. vbookie, ipbArcade) it breaks the template.

You can view it here.
