Morning folks!


I'm waiting to hear back from some tech people on our new skin. I installed it last night but nothing is showing as you can see.

I think I know what the problem is but I want the Skin company to confirm before I do anything that might
blow us up. :biggrin:

Just give me some time for them to answer me back.

If you got to the very bottom of the main page on the LEFT I turned on the ability to
change Skins so you can go back to the default for a while.

I'm going to change the editor colors next, I had to take SLW to the docs for an appt.

Also, although I like this skin alot the instructions assume you know vBulletin like the back of your hand and that's not good. The designer needs to come up with a better set of install docs.

The quality of the smilie. The difference is the cut to transparency and I am just guessing, but the clean one is probably a PNG and the rougher one is probably a GIF.

Sorry, can't blame SR for this one. He asked me to pick out the colors. We reviewed what's available for purchase. Everyone was complaianing about the bright, blind your eyes color that came with the upgrade.

SR posted the sample before he purchased it. The problem is you get only a sample, don't know the glitches til after it's purchased.

Funny thing, people gripe if it's too bright or if it's too dark. We're trying to do the best that we can with our resources.

The color choices done by techies aren't that great. Believe me, this was one of the best that we could find that combined the new features that SR wanted with a color that wouldn't blind people. SR has put in a lot of time on this. I guess "volunteers" get no respect.

Check it out Linda. SR made another fix and the type is darker now in the replies, so this should eliminate this problem. You'll be able to see any typos now.

As far as the "RedFox" on the upper left, that is a graphic that needs to be changed to Conservative Underground, but SR is working on other problems now.

Besides, as Rock I think it was, suggested to ... click on bottom left of the page and go back to another skin, while the change is going on.

Works for me! Am typing this with a Vb4 (???) or whatever the dickens it was called.

Glad I missed all the ruckus. This skin looks fine to me.

I can see this software needs tweaking... but thats just "the little stuff". Dont sweat it. Just a few more tweaks and ... all will be normal again. But it does take time. A LOT of time (to "fine tune") esp if your unfamiliar with the controls and such of pre-made forum software. At least that is my experience with the few websites that I have made.

Luv this new skin guyz. Keep on, 'keepin on'. :cool:

We're conservatives with options. :biggrin:

If you like the bright light background, choose the one that came standard with the software upgrade. If you like the dark grey/black background, just keep this. If you prefer the one with the lighter background (not glaring white) and the pretty pink, choose that in the little drop down menu bottom left.

If you like the pink, send a thank you to Rock, who wanted the pretty in pink piggie skin that's most easily read when he's outdoors, on the job. He kindly purchased it for the board. Many thanks.

So hopefully we can please at least some of the people some of the time. :tongue:

Personally, I don't think the logo should change, not that Janice's version isn't great. I just think logos become part of a site's identity and shouldn't be changed on whim.

However, this is just my opinion -- which means it's 100% correct. http://i531.photobucket.com/albums/dd359/JamesSavant/toothless.gif

Hey is this an option for us all? If we find a skin we really like and want to purchase it as a donation can we do that to help build the library of available choices? It's nice to have the three different ones now to choose from. And if so, where would one look to see what all is available?

I love the new logo Janis made. That looks really sharp! I respectfully disagree with the monkey on changing the logo. While it is true a logo becomes a site's identity, now and then it's good to put on a fresh face. With this upgrade and new colors now is a perfect time to spruce up with a whole new look including a new logo.

SR & SLW I think you did a great job and I appreciate all the time you've spent in this.

The only recommendation I'd make is that I wish I could increase the font size. Maybe it's just the new colors making it appear smaller to my old eye, but as I type the words look awful smaller than before.

Hi Kay!

It's no problem if you want to buy CU a Skin. When you find one just let me know and I'll buy & install it. We got these two here: http://www.vbstyles.com/.

But there are others, just use Google. The skin has to work with vBulletin Version 4.1.10. I'd just Google "vBulletin Skins".

I like the larger font. Old people like Rock will be able to read it better.

LOL!!

You wouldn't believe how long it took me to find the right setting to change!! Apparently vBulletin makes a PlugIn that makes finding this info easy but you need to be running FireFox.

The only recommendation I'd make is that I wish I could increase the font size. Maybe it's just the new colors making it appear smaller to my old eye, but as I type the words look awful smaller than before.

You can also make the font bigger with your browser. It isnt really necessary to increase font size in the forum software. Heres what you do:

In either the Internet Explorer or the Firefox browser just look at the font or type that you would like to make bigger. Then while holding down the Ctrl key (on either side of the space bar) on your keyboard use the middle scroll wheel on your mouse to scroll forwards or backwards to make the font smaller or bigger.

Gotta luv these little "secrets". This will work on all versions of Microsoft operating systems.

If you've been gone, you missed all the complaints about the default version.

I think I've just about settled in with the pig... but the CU header at the top looks good for just a nanosecond and then turns completely white, background, letters and all. Whats left is Forum and Whats New in the upper left, the donate set and then Advanced Search in the upper right. Everything else down to 'you last visited' is stark white.

Edit:
And immediately upon posting this - it returned to it's proper state.

Edit 2:
And back to white it goes.

This was happening on SLW's PC and Ape's also. I cleared her Temp Internet Files area and the problem seems to have gone away. I had her flipping between pages like crazy.

Go to Internet Options/Browsing History/Delete/(Cookies/Temp Files) and clear them.

That seems to have worked for her.

Let us know.

I'm still having the problem. It's erratic and I have tried all the stuff you suggested, SR. It's weird because it only started happening on Monday. It was fine before that. :apologetic:

Dang, I've been using the Grey skin all day and haven't had it happen once...

If it's still happening tomorrow I'll open a ticket with the vB Skin folks and ask them.

And SLW said it was happening to her BEFORE I turned on the new ads so that
isn't it.

Maybe it is natural for the old grey ape hide to turn white.http://gfxlovers.com/smilies/imgs/confused/confused002.gif (http://gfxlovers.com/smilies)

I'm using Chrome. I could believe that was it if it hadn't worked perfectly before. It's weird. The other possibility "might" be that I need to update my Java? SR, have you done any sort of update on the skin itself since you first installed it?

Also, my Java was out of date so I updated and still have the prob, so it's not that. It HAS to be the pank skin's fault. It's the only explanation.

FWIW, I get the same result when I try your godforsaken skin. The only skins that don't seem to be a prob are the default and the "Twilight the movie" red one.

No. Certain pages look like this:OK, see that "Your Ad Here" "Your Ad Here" to the right of Watch Now and Play Now?

I use the default skin and I have the Donate button and the two Your Ad Here (only on the left) with nothing else being displayed, in that section.

Actually, I'm not even sure what your problem is. I should probably backtrack in the thread but there's all that off topic crap now. :smile-new:

The only edit I've done on the skin is the logo and the ads. But all the other skins have the same edits.

Like I said, I'll ask the developer tomorrow. If I remember correctly, that grey skin is slightly different from the others so I'll ask if there are any similiar reports...

No worries. I think you will find that this is all Rock's fault somehow. I don't know how, but it must be.
