vB Version: 4.0.3 Rating: (9 votes - 4.89 average) Installs: 43

Not Supported Template Edits Additional Files External Content  

NO LONGER SUPPORTED!!!!!
The most advanced vBulletin 4.0 header system ever released so far, with built-in banner rotator (optional). This is a product that we are giving away freely to the vBulletin community, even though it was originally designed as a commercial product. It includes everything to give you a sleek and stylish flash-based header system for the vBulletin 4.0 series. This product was released for vBulletin 3.0 series; however we had many asking for a version for vB4, so here it is with many improvements and we added many more functions to this version. This product comes in two versions, one with an advertising banner rotator built-in and one without, giving you full control of how you want to implement it on your own vBulletin. It does not use any of vBulletin 4.0’s advertising system, nor query your database or require product plugins.



Demonstrations Available
Shedevils Leisure District - The Front Page
Also available is our own demonstration - Go to www.digitalport.co.uk and scroll down to the footer on any page under Style Chooser -> Select "Concepta Series" to view. Remember to switch back to our default style afterwards.

Released: 06/07/10
1280 version Added
- see download attachments on this mod (Wide 1280 pixel version) v1.0.1280a

XML Configuration Files
Due to the setup procedure being quite complex we have made most of the configuration details available online only. This is to allow you to jump to the areas you need to configure in detail, this guide will give you the basic installation procedure, to setup vBulletin to use this modification. We have provided links to the relevant sections that cover the XML configuration. For best results always optimize any images, this will ensure the pre-loaders will only show for a short time, if at all.

Preview setup files included
These allow you to setup the header system locally before adding it your vBulletin, however we do not recommend that you upload these files. Use them for testing only.

*Fixed width Forums only – the only reason why we stipulate this is due to the way flash functions. This product is designed for a 950 pixel width and a 150 pixel height; you will find how to adjust your forum to this fixed width by reading the Additional Stylevars section of this guide.
**Fluid forum setup - Should you wish to use it on a fluid forum then we recommend that you use a fade to alpha on your background images, this will still allow you to use this modification, but not to its full capacity.

Features:
  • Import your logo and place it anywhere within the header (requires no coding knowledge to setup)
  • Import numerous backgrounds with numerous load and unload transitional effects
  • Imports your 468 x 60 pixel banner adverts with support for PNG, JPG and SWF file formats (banner rotator version only)
  • Over 80 transitional effects, each banner can use these on a single banner or you can set to randomize all banners
  • Pre-loads all images ‘on-the-fly’ and caches them therefore using very low bandwidth consumption
  • Package includes pre-loaded images and banners and pre-configured (change as required). Full documentation in Word, PDF and text formats.

Important – Before uploading anything:

Please read on how to setup the vB Flash Header System locally, this will help you see what the header will look like before installing it on vBulletin. The previewer files are for setup purposes, they contain documentation as well to allow you to view your header before uploading.

Just a few...Arc, Blur, Drop, Fade, Fold, Rotate, Slide, Squares, Twist, Wave, Wipe, Wobble, Zoom

Each one of the above has numerous variations...

can you give us a complete list of these effects?

another question what about the branding free? right now what we can do with your addon?

TIA

Basically, just open either one of the folders which you wish to upload, inside you will find a "Previewer" file. This will load the header in to your browser locally, allowing you to change the images, etc before uploading the full contents to your server. The Previewer files contain further documentation.

I thought I had covered these files, maybe I didn't - there was a lot of documentation to type up.

You should be okay now.

All transitions are listed under the Documentation/vB Flash Header Pro Transition settings.txt file. It shows all in and out effects available.

The branding-free version will be available shortly in our store.

EDIT: I gave you the wrong code, the correct code is below. I did not notice you had changed the actual in and out effect values and parameters.

Because the parameters are hard-coded in to the main swf file, you cannot change the values, only the parameters of the values. Therefore, if you wanted to use header to link to your forumhome, then you just need to do the following:

XML with new transitions and forum home page link

Your forum url is only required in the cc_hp_head.xml if you wish to link all header images to your forum or site home. It is an optional field.

The banner ads uses the cc_hp_ad_rotator.xml, this file allows you to enter the direct url to your ad images, the actual link to the site you wish to link to, and of course the effects you want to use. You do not put your own website url in this XML unless you wanted to link a banner to your own website.

It was designed with a default width of 950 pixels to comply with standard monitor displays, or it would cause 'side-scroll'. The timing can only be set internally at the moment, it was not a value I brought out in to the XML.

If you wanted it like this then we can provide a custom-built version, designed to your own requirements.
