Question What Hack is this? - Looks Great!

Hi,

I was wondering how I could achieve these forum styles:

or

Are these any certain hacks which you can see they are using?

What is it I'm supposed to be seeing? They just look like standard vb boards. Or are you talking about the colors? The CSS?

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

I'm talking about the design, style and css - and also hacks.

In Example one:

How do they achieve the tabbed layout and also how do they achieve the "Latest Laptop Discussion" section? I also would like to know how they achieve the whole "compact" look with everything kept in a container?

Thank-You

Why don't you ask the owner of the site?

Looking at the style chooser the style is listed as their own so they either coded the template themselves or bought a design from a template coder.

The side columns are just a part of the design, there are many vB skins available in similar designs and there is a side columns hack available here at vB.org if you prefer to use that with your own skin.

Do a search on "left" "all mods" "titles only" and you'll get mods like this - Simple Left Side Column Blocks on ForumHome There are others, too.

There are also mods for second navbars.

A lot of this stuff you can figure out by just viewing the source in the page. If you look at the source, you'll see the top tabs are in a div with the id "sitetabContainer". Then just look at their css file (style.css) and you see this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

There are several ways to get the latest threads/posts. Do a search in the articles here and on vb.com in the Tips and Tricks forum (or whatever it's called) and you'll see different ways to do that.
