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 .

*Please note, if you do not use the vBulletin Suite and have the Forum Classic version you only need to install the file vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-Forum.xml.
a) Import the vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-Forum.xml file first.
b) Merge in the vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-CMS.xml (Options when uploading a style allow you to merge into a existing style, choose to merge this into the new style you just created using the Forum.xml.
c) Merge in the vbulletin-style_Avenger_Blue_Fixed-Blog.xml into the style, this has now updated the style for all three major products and the installation is complete!
3) Enjoy!

Part of that is the profile customization issue, the other is as I stated in the other thread i.e. requires updating and almost everyone, huge project I must have finished by this Sunday then I'll finalize the new version and release but I can't justify working on a free style while paid work is on schedule plain and simple.

So your referring to the CMS as "News".... the style should work fine w/ the CMS... if you had the mobile style installed did you specify a style for New/Older Mobile browsers in the admincp? If so that might be the issue.

I'm simply trying to figure out what CSS controls this area I have been inquiring about. I can make my own changes if I just know where to look.

Thanks

So far off the top of my head it was quite a few, I would rather release the new update then you can compare using Firebug to sort if some still exist or set the master profile css for some parts and adjust each individual style to sort the remaining misc issues.

Set those to "None" and that should sort the issue .

Setting to NO did not help, maybe its the way i install it wrong.
Since i have not found a installation description here i used following way to install your skin.


Double extracted your Skin.
Uploaded the avenger_blue folder with contents into my forum/images folder.
I know have the avenger_blue folder with its files under my forum/images folder

I then went to ACP > Download / Upload Styles
Uploaded the Fluid XML file via "EITHER upload the XML file from your computer"
Ignore Style Version YES / No Parent Style / Display Order 10 / Allow User Selection OFF (for now)
Import

ACP Response:
Updating style information for each style...

Default Style ... (Templates) (StyleVars) (Replacement Variables) (CSS) (Controls) Done.

Avenger Blue - Fluid ... (Templates) (StyleVars) (Replacement Variables) (CSS) (Controls) Done.

Again only the Forums uses the Style.

**Im not an English native speaker so forgive my English and thanks for your work.
I updated to 4.1.7 after i discovered these problem and read that you will be delivering an update. As i said earlier i can wait.

I got it enabled for CMS but i had to edit the Settings (click the Pencil on Main Section its usualy TLD/content.php/YouRSectionName/edit Page).

In the Style Drop Down i selected Board Defaults and saved. When i rechecked he Settings it was now on Inherit.

Anyway its working for now. Hope this helps others when they want to install it.

I am wondering now since I'm new to all this if it would have been wiser to install this Style as child of the Default one. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

****update:
Clicking on a News "...read More" switches to default Style on the selected Newspage

Superman is correct, part of that is due to the profile customization but you can try the following stylevars;

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

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

Very Nice professional looking skin. One of the better looking VB skins I have seen in some time. Installed and thanks for taking the time to release it. I have it installed on my 4.17 release and seems to be fine.

In additional.css find:


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

Add under:


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

That will solve most of the profile styling issues but the other areas may still revolve around profile customization. I also noticed in another thread you stated that you have all Dark styles currently disabled until you figure this out? Try that same code in those dark styles of course replacing the #222937 background colors respectively and it may solve most if not all of your CSS issues .

The white area I'm trying to get rid of affects all my dark styles not just yours. Your style is the best one I have but if I can't resolve this issue, I'm just going to have to run one of the crappy whitish styles.

I've tried everyone's suggestions.

Honestly it surprises me that I never got an answer to asking what css drives those white blocks?

I need to drop the issue before it racks my brain. I Don't need the stress.

Gary... those css definitions I listed in the post above yours *hopefully* should fix your issue have you checked yet? Those are the ones you must edit although I've found another way by calling a css file in the MEMBERINFO template itself. If the CSS fix I listed does not solve your issue completely let me know via PM and I'll shoot over some instructions for a quick test in your memberinfo template using <style="text/css" etc .

TheLastSuperman,
Although this theme is a 8 on the Seti wowmeter, I just can't use another dark theme. Would you consider making a light theme for use on say an anime forum? I was porting over a vb3 theme called Anime Planet but dropped it due to not asking if it was ok. It appeared the coder had abandoned it but my conscience said to stop.
So in light of that my half-a**ed attempts to make a theme have been terrible at best. Would you consider making one?
