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.

Basic Installation
During this installation all you are doing is replacing the default vBulletin logo coding with our custom code.
Use the Preview Files first to setup your header as you want it.
Upload all contents of either the "vB Flash Header no Ads" or the "vB Flash Header with Ads" folder to vBulletin forum root.
Please follow our links to configure the various areas of this modification in detail. Instructions vary on which version you are installing and configuring.

Are you sure you reverted the correct templates? Have you emptied cash and refreshed?

I have taken it off and put it back on after adjustments a few times and all i have to do is change the templates to do so.

It was originally designed for vB 3.6.x - this version is now out-dated - but it will still work under 3.8.x http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=141358

The older version is very limited in features compared to this version. We have updated this one in many ways, and it would need an embed re-code to work under 3.8.x.

The logo is not linked in anyway to allow urls to be entered, however the background area is, there is a link parameter where you need to place your full url to your home page. You would need to enter this on every line of each background.

Problem with that is that when I put in my site url it causes a new tab to be opened to my home page instead of going to the homepage.

Sample of my code

Ah, I will need to change the target tag in the AS, I thought I had but obviously I missed that.

I'll update the whole soon.
