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 .

OK, updated the template. Thanks. However, now my blogs and articles tabs are giving me 404 errors.... not sure why...


OK, not the template fault, looks like a dbseo issue, contacted them...



-->>>OH, the reason the table td/tr issue was present is that I wanted the site logo to auto shrink with no matter how big the user makes the screen. Now, using the suggestion above, it no longer does that. Anyway to work around that??? Thanks.

The css for the logo is located in additional.css near the top, there's two for this area one is the actual background and the other serves as a "cover" i.e. a transparent image that covers the logo to prevent straight -right-click save image etc.

In additional.css find (or similar, depending on if you're using fixed or fluid version):

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

Change to:

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

So basically remove any references of width/height and add in:

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

*Not tested so let me know, might need to adjust/tinker to make it presentable .

This is found when I view the source code for your forum:

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

Makes no sense to link to an iframe in a 1kb file like that unless it was compromised but then the file size if it contained mal code should be larger than the original file size, which is the same 1kb so odd all around I'd say, can't tell anything specific unless I had access and I'm booked for the night working now and its close to 11pm here so no time to check regardless and not trying to scare you one bit simply saying this seems very odd and that you need to look into it to be safe.

I would replace default vBulletin files to be safe, check in the admincp using suspect file versions under maintenance after replacing them and also check for spare admin accounts. If anything looks odd file-wise then make a new thread in the vB4 forums and ask for feedback/assistance w/ the file names before deleting. *As always make a backup of database and files before removing anything.

Edit: Who is pasting <table and <TR <TD codes all over the place? STOP DAT lol its just an old outdated way to design web pages... it still works but not the standard, only use when absolutely required i.e. you're pulling your hair out because you can't find a way to make something display properly so you cheat and use a table (try not to!). Just one of many examples explaining more in detail - http://www.itegritygroup.com/css-vs-tables/ AND here is an example of how to do a three part fluid header instead of using a table to do the same in vBulletin - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=228319

So I assume it is part of the vbulletin files...

My brain is broken today already, like a jello pudding cup so head my words of advice with a grain of salt per say lol. I see Lynne gave you some info and I'm not about to doubt that simply going to say that I can't recall what page I was on when I viewed your source code so if on search and that is supposed to show then so be it but I don't recall that iframe code at all from all the times I've worked on styles so we're gonna try this:
  1. Open Notepad++ (Google + Download then use it to copy/paste/edit ALL code do not use Windows notepad/wordpad can cause issues depending on server type used).
  2. Open the template in question.
  3. Copy all the code, now paste into notepad++ in a new document, once pasted minimize notepad++
  4. Now back in your browser within the vBulletin template remove the iframe code, save the template.
  5. Check the style now, any issues still present regarding the popup?

By doing the above one of two things will happen and as such you should only act if its not fixed, if fixed then you're done, see below for outcomes.

- IF no issues are present, then that was it and its fixed.
- IF the issue is still present, delete all the code in the template and replace with the original template code you have sitting in notepad++ .

Thanks will try it out late tonight. One more question. Is there a limit as to how many nav tabs you can have? I noticed on a mobile device that the tabs bunch up after the second row (nav tabs drop down to a second row on mobile device). Any way around this? Thanks.

Not sure if this will work on mobile or not but when you said they were bunching up it did come to mind .

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=274972

^ See post #2 here in the Avenger Blue thread for info on how to adjust this style with the Navtabs v1 its about half way down in post 2.

Edit: I wanted to edit my post and clarify something though so you would know and any others who happen across this post wondering the same thing - there is and is not a limit to how many navbar tabs you can have however unless you use a mod like above it may become crowded as you noticed. This also can come into play (too many tabs so they bunch up) depending on the type of style you have fluid or fixed - in a fixed style its a set width so only so many tabs will fit in a horizontal fashion since the width is specifically set. In a fluid style it then depends on the users monitor resolution so if the style is set to display 80% width with 10% margin on each side that = 100% but is the user running a 1024x768 resolution on their pc OR are they running 1920x1080 on a 40" LCD tv like me? <-- All of those factors can change how it appears - the only time it will not change is if its a fixed width as you know how many and what to fit in then, and no matter if on a 1024x768 or 1920x1080 resolution the site will always be the fixed width and this is also why sometimes we must scroll on certain sites to see content, they were coded in a set size and why the scroll-bars popup on certain sites and others they do not (responsive style/them etc).

Damn, it got all screwed up on the nav bars. Ads are running into it, and the tabs are cutting into the bottom menu options under the nav bar, any idea? Thanks

Look in additional.css for body_wrapper

Adjust the padding/margin-top css and add more room, style is not up in front of me and still sipping coffee so if that's not it let me know and I'll check my copy of the style.

Seems to be messing up the template if I decrease, or increase the number on the far right (104). Anyway to drop the advertising box?:

Ok, changed it to 50px and it did separate the ad from the tabs but I noticed that the white line gap between the body and the white line on the bottom of the tabs is not like it was with the original version. Also, how do I get the white lines back on the sides of the tabs like originally? Thanks.

Ahh ^ yes you must be using the newer version, there was an issue with how the header displayed the background in prior versions so now it uses the background image to do the line (so view the background by itself, now you see the line. I made the header/logo area a set size) so when you add in a logo that is larger than the included one you must adjust all this including the background image where as previously it moved itself but then the display issue was present and demanded a fix respectfully.

The tabs are part of the navbar template and the white is actually #707070 like you see in the code above so when you edit additional.css you can see where the new lines of css are for the navbar and then copy that to the dbtech tab css if present to also duplicate the lines on the side.
