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 .

Hey Doug

I saw your pm and yes I remember you! Posting what I think the fix is in public though so anyone else with same issue can possibly fix the same way .

Quite a few people don't realize that the CMS can have a specific style set. If you've ever specifically set it in the past, you may not recall so what you need to do is check:
- Navigate to your CMS page.
- Click the Pencil icon beside the text "The Front Page" the pencil icon is to the right of that text IF you're logged-in as an administrator.
- Click the drop-down to the right of "Style" and select the style you wish the CMS to use.

*If you want the CMS to use the style specified in the style settings so it always matches the active style in use the choose the option "Inherit" and that will ensure the CMS defaults to whichever style is set as the default respectively .

^ Did that fix it? Let me know

Nope. All it does is refresh into default template. My website is acting weird all over the place. The forum section does not load properly so I may to a clean reinstall of everything. I am hoping to avoid that. Something seems corrupted somewhere.

I found a band-aid fix basically but it works. I made this the default template and deleted the vanilla default template that shipped with vBulletin. Everything appears to work and my issue in your PM with the Forum is forum has to be default in the navigation or it errors out against the arcade I have installed. What I have now works fine.

I noticed when visiting the site, the forum is just that i.e. on the top level url and not in a folder such as /forums/ however your CMS is in a sub-folder? Example: www.example.com/cms/

What I think you did was try to install the CMS in the root and meant to have the forums in a folder perhaps? Not entirely sure but glad to hear it's fixed for now, don't go pulling any hairs out or completely re-installing until there simply is no fix at all, never a need to redo work when sorting one little error might sort it all .

I got errors when I had it in the folder so everything is in the root. I wanted to try the folder method because with other software it was cleaner to do your own mods that way. But if it produces any kind of errors (that I think is mod_rewrite not the code) it is not worth it at this time.

Perhaps its because Friday is beckoning me to not think correctly LOL! I'm not understanding or perhaps realizing what is missing - it appears as if that's the box you specify IF you're able to attend an event on the calendar, if so will you please post a link to that event page on your site, I'll switch between styles and provide a fix when found .

Unfortunately, I can not enter the blue style in the calendar.
We might hang on a template since it is only after the update of vBulletin 4.2.3 so.

Du bist nicht angemeldet oder du hast keine Rechte diese Seite zu betreten. Dies könnte einer der Gründe sein

So in other words I need a basic account login .

I have found the solution.
I had the template: calendar_showeventsbit
change.
Just copy it from the original style and paste it into the Avenger Blue.
Now everything works again.
