This is such a great style... love it!

Do I upload the red2black folder into the Forums directory on my server or root?

I did it to the forums and got red x's where images should go.

Any advice appreciated...thanks much!

Edit: Nevermind...figured it out. Had uploaded the wrong "Red2Black" folder... Duh me

Okay, I've searched through this thread and can't seem to find the answer...

I'd like to remove the "Red 2 Black" banner and have nothing but the white bar...

I checked in the navbar template... and I saw the beginning and ending comments about the banner, but between them, there was nothing.

I couldn't see where I could remove it.

Of course, I have no coding experience whatsoever, but I'd like to learn how to do this...

Thanks in advance!

I think you'll find what you are looking for in the Common Templates section on the Style Manager page for this style. Go to AdminCP, Styles and Templates, Style Manager. "Go" to the Red2Black style, and you'll see the Common Templates near the top. What you are looking for is in the Header template.

FYI, where the template refers to $stylevar[titleimage], this is the Title Image path defined further down the page, first entry in the Image Paths section.

Hope this helps,

I'm not sure what I should do... since I'm very new to this. Do I click "Revert"?

Or is it okay just to leave it alone?

Please advise... thank you

That is simply saying that there are probably changes in the those two templates from when I altered them in v3.5.0 in the v3.5.4. I am not sure if they are just class changes and such or not, just don't remember. You can use the "History" feature to compare the current template altered by me to the v3.5.4 default and it will highlight the differences. If they are just class differences you are fine. I forget if there are any functional changes with the default template but if your board is operating fine, you should be fine. If you compare them and it looks like there are no changes required, you can simply save the current template and the message will go away. You can still compare it to the default at any time. If you click revert, it will change the template to the v3.5.4 default and may undo some stuff.

Hi Chef,

Thanks for the thorough explanation.

I did what you said and there are some class changes, but there are some non-class changes such as:

OLD: <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="1" border="0">

NEW: <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="1" border="0" width="auto">

and

OLD: </select><input type="submit" class="button" id="inlinego" value="$vbphrase[go]" />
</div>

NEW: </select>
<input type="submit" class="button" id="inlinego" value="$vbphrase[go]" />

OLD: <div class="smallfont" style="text-align:$stylevar[left]; white-space:nowrap; float:$stylevar[right]">
<if condition="$show['pagenav']"><br /></if><strong>$vbphrase[moderation]</strong><br />

NEW: <br /><em>$vbphrase[moderation]</em>

OLD: <if condition="$show['pagenav'] OR $show['inlinemod']">
<td align="$stylevar[right]">$pagenav

NEW: <if condition="$pagenav OR $show['inlinemod']">
<td class="smallfont" align="$stylevar[right]">$pagenav

Any advice?

Sure, it would be best to go ahead and apply the other changes to the R2B template. You can always copy the current one to a text file (or "save in template history" with a name like "R2B Default") so that if you mess something up making the coding changes you can always put it back and try again.

Hello Mr. Chef

I have been using this for MONTHS. I have not found a better skin for my site ever. You ROCK. One thing I can't stand and I want it fixed.
When ever there is a link you cant see it because it looks just like normal text. I want it a different color or highlighted.

Can you please help me.

Thanks,
Rob

That's true - I'd actually like for my links to show up underlined or something. It should just be a change to the CSS. Chef, any thoughts on the best way to make links look more obvious?

I have installed this style on a vb3.5.4, and found out that i should not revert, but instead edit and save each template without changing them.
By doing this, i get rid of the warning messages in admincp.

The template must not be reverted after a fresh install of this style on vb 3.5.4.
If one reverts, the style will not function properly.


BTW: Thanks for a great style! I installed it, and am currently customizing it further for our car forum at http://www.wroom.org/evoclub/.


I also made up a set of smilies that works on both dark and light backgrounds.

I found out that there should be some kind of support for selection of smilie sets, or even dynamically generating smilie sets for different backgrounds, since it is impossible to get an image with shaded edge transparency to work on both dark and light backgrounds, like for the vb default smilie set.

Dynamically generating smilies and icons for choosen background color/brigthness in styles could for instance be done from .ai template images with ImageMagick.
(Should i patent it? )

I see lots of requests for smilies that works with this style, and if there is a genuine interest i can release my smilie set here at vbulletin.org.

It's probably been asked, but are there plans of officially releasing a 3.6 version of this skin?

Sorry, no plans at this time.
If someone wants to run through the template edits I would be happy to release it with full accreditation.

I'm a new transplant from phpbb2, and was wondering if you, or one of your many fans, would be interested in editing ths to work with 2.6.1. This style is awesome, and i'd love to use it with my forums....however not being proficient in coding, and since its my first day using VB, I am still finding my way
