Here is the download for the default style that we use here. There are 2 directories that contain images inside of the zip. Those directories need to be moved into your styles/images directory. Then just import the style itself.

Demo: This site wink

The first attachment is for those running 7.0, 7.0.1 or 7.0.2.

The second attachment is for those running 7.1.

i tried to put a background image on my site but it doesnt show. Is there someplace i am missing? I edited the body at the start of the css file...

body {
color: #000000;
background-image: url('http://www.website.com/graphics/gravelbg.jpg');
font-family: Trebuchet MS, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 10pt;
}


No love... just shows the normal white background. Any ideas?

You need to use the built in style editor to edit the styles vs just editing the stylesheet directly as your style info is saved in the database and "generated" on updates.

Yeh, I need to update several of my styles; but since I post them twice (UBBDev and here) I'm thinking of just posting the style at one page and updates at another

Hi Rick
I just upgraded to Threads and to say the least, it is a bit overwhelming. I tried to import this Style and get this error.

Parse error: parse error, unexpected ',' in /home/jbforums/public_html/forums/styles/2.php on line 11

I have no Idea what this means. Can you help? I used the first attachment for 7.0.2

Thanks

I hope this means something to you. I just copied it from the view file function of my FTP program so I hope t is in the right format.

<?php
$style_array = array(
"id" => '2',
"general" => "",
"avatars" => "",
"forumimages" => "",
"graemlins" => "",
"icons" => "",
"markup_panel" => "",

Rick please disregard as I was trying to import the wrong file.
just did it with the right one and it said it did it although there must be somewhere to select the new style as it still looks the same. I guess I need to do some more reading.

Ok, once you have it imported, make sure it is set to active. If you want it to be the default style for the forum, select the default box as well. At that point, if it's still not showing as the default, then your personal preference is overriding it. You can go into your preferences under My Stuff and select it there.

Question: Couldn't someone running 7.0.* technically be able to use the 7.1 style? Just wondering since you've basically just added some items, right? If they're not being called, it shouldn't matter, no? (Just trying to save some time for myself wink )

The big difference is the ubbcode stuff. If you used the 7.1 style on your 7.0 forum, the quote, php and code boxes probably wouldn't display properly at all wink

I'm forcing people to use the UBB7.0 version of UBBCode in my UBB7.1 styles; because the IE7 fix is redundant and ugly wink...

Oh, the IE7 "fix" is included in the 7.1 styles? I thought it was optional... :/

It's optional if you want to apply it to your existing styles, however it ships that way as the default.

It's one of those you can't please em all things. If it's not fixed, IE users post it as a bug, if it is fixed, everyone else posts that they liked the old way wink

In IE, the old method wouldn't put a sidescroll in, it would just stretch the entire screen.

It adds a bunch of horizontal scroll bars to your posts, whether necessary or not... I mean... it "fixes" IE7 as best as it can to conform to web standards... I mean... it's a M$ plot to make Firefox look bad... I mean... it prevents long posts from scrolling off the page in IE7, even tho FF already does this... I mean... well, all of the above probably. laugh

lets just say the fix makes things look horrid in real browsers lol...

An example:
1. Make a long post as a quote.
2. Quote the quote.
3. Quote the quote again.

Now, the ie7 fix is to specify a height and width that always appear, so each box has a specific height and width it has to conform to. So, what you get is a box with scrollbars, another box with scrollbars, and another box with even more scrollbars.

The original way is, each would be embedded in the prior, no extra scrollbars as they weren' tneeded.

I think it is perfect. It is one of the nicest I have ever seen.

I would like more versions of it... like one that is exactly the same but with larger fonts to please older posters

I like this style as its simple, nice and clean (uncluttered).

Any chance of doing it for 7.2.2? Or will the 7.1 version work against 7.2.2?

It will work with 7.2.2. You may have to tweak a few of the settings, but most of the new style classes will get a default value.

Not many style changes between versions; so there shouldn't be much to update (and those updates should be miniscule at that)

Just put this on a 7.2.2 site, works well thank you smile

It's a little unclear, but for those new to threads, install it like this:

Download and unzip to your computer. Upload the 2 folders within to your forum's styles/images folder (should end up like this):

/styles/images/drop_shadow_wrapper
/styles/images/ubbthreads

Then import the ubbcentral_with_wrapper style as a style and tweak as you like.

Thanks Rick. smile

I am getting confused with so many links for the same style...

Which link should I chick to get the template that works well with 7.5.3
???

I understand there is also a version with rounded borders. Am I right?

What you need to remember is this style was originaly designed for 7.0 then 7.1
So a couple of css classes have been added over the different versions.
I use the one Rick posted "324-ubbcentral_style_7_1.zip"
for 7.5.3 but you still need to go edit the style and copy a couple classes to make it look good.
DL posted a update a couple posts above. I have not tried it but it probably already has the few edits needed for 7.5.3
But to be honest they all will work, just some of the features will be missing the style format due to they were added after the style was designed. It really is simple to add them after the fact.

The first post in this topic by Rick.
Use the second file "324-ubbcentral_style_7_1.zip"
But like I said yo may still need to edit it. I know the tool tips feature is missing formatting but there is a copy link in the style editor that works fine.

Like I said you may need to edit a couple of properties.
But I believe the alternating colors was the original default setting. Dark light dark light

Maybe I am going crazy, or just do not understand the logic, but would it not be more logical if the file offered for download in a thread called UBBCentral Style was the one used here and not something different?

Yea probably.
But it really is the same style just that Rick probably edited it a little over time with the newer releases.
Like I said this style was created for a prior version. So there are a few css properties not populated but should take on default values.
Maybe Rick can export a current style for 7.5.3.
But if he does he probably will place it at ubbskins.com

To get rid of the alternating colors you can edit the style
Control Panel » Styles » Edit or Add a Style
select the "Forum Summary Properties"
There are 26 properties under this heading
If you look just to the right of each property there is a copy link.
Select copy for all 26 properties.
Then you can select the update preview area button as you go to see the change.(if you want to)
When you are done select the update button to save the changes.
Takes a whole 20 seconds.

Well the first post by Rick has two attachments. The one for 7.1 is the latest available version.
Which I use for v7.5.4.2.
But you will need to tweak it a bit for some missing css properties like the mouse hover tool. Depends on what features you enable.

The style has been here for quite some time and I don't think any one is willing to update it till after version 8 comes out.

But it does work fine with version 7.5.4.2.
Like I said you just need to use the copy link in some of the newer features in the style editor after importing.

I can just Import that file and that's it ?

Or do I have to upload any images from the zipped file

---

Ok it worked

I d/led DLWebmaestro's file: ubbcentral_style_7_4_2.zip on page 4 here

I uploaded the ubbthreads directory to my styles/images directory on the server

The other directory was already there on the server (drop_shadow_wrapper)

I then used sirdude's file: ubb.central_with_wrapper.txt on this page to Import the style

That works I guess. It is not a complicated process.
The style is a little old and may need to be tweaked some depending on what features you enable.
But it is fairly simple to do.
Just edit the style in the control panel and use the copy link for what does not appear correct.

keep in mind that i modified mine from the original, so you would only take that if you wanted the changes..

rounding some corners more etc..

if you want what most closely represents what you see HERE, then take the original smile
