Title: Frosty

Threads Version: Created with/for 7.1

Description: This style is very similar to the one we used to run at ubbdev, minus the header/footer. If I can find the blank versions of the header graphics that you can use I'll post the code for it too. smile

Demo: See attachment below

Looking good allen; my only recommendation is to set the text color of the breadcrumb so its white too

Hi there. I really like this style but when I downloaded it, it did not include the silver bars or the blue-graph background. Did I not download something right? Thanks.

Why do the side panels not line up right? Or, any of the division bar images show up? Not even the grid background appears.

Here's my link: http://www.shorthandclasses.com/community/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=58&page=1

I followed Gizmo's directions at ubbdev to remove the "As" in the format and this worked great. I also removed Allen's urls throughout the wrapper.txt.

Thanks.

Because we used the style in more than just the forum, not putting the url's in would have resulted in lots of broken image links.

Not true; look at my styles... Not one URL is hardcoded and it works perfectly out of the box; you just have to set the url attribute properly

technically your urls ARE also hardcoded too. you just hardcode a relative url and assume that the images will be in '/images/yourstyle/xxx.gif'

first thing i did was to modify your urls to '/styles/yourstyle/images/xxx.gif', because i believe it's more logical there at least.

and the person installing the style will still have to know to ftp the images appropriately to the 'relative URL'

way i see it is that it's 6 of one and 1/2 dozen of other here. i see just a difference of full vs relative and that's it.

neither is 100% automatic wink

now if the style uploader itself took that into account and the images magically appeared all synced up.... hrm.. now where did i hear that before? *crickets*

it's like deja vu all over again...

wink

ps: allen, i used your theme and it turned into one of the more popular ones, btw

Mine have been a drop in and go for every user i've sent it to... It assumes you upload your images to your styles/images directory into the folders contained with the style; it should work out of the box if uploaded as stated...

more like 'images/styles', which is what i modified. at least that is what your VNC christmas one has wink

Here

and where i've used the term 'drop in' in the past, i really meant a full on drop in with the images being uploaded as part of the 'browse for file(s)' process.. Scenario: you'd be browsing to a my.new.style.zip, which has not only the wrapper, but also the images .. all is done in one fell swoop. and same applies for the opposite direction (ie: saving the style to hdd)

oh and it even extends further, just to finish the thought. a lot of times, i will have a set of general images (post icons etc) that belong with the style too and it would be nice to have that part of the overall thing we call a 'style' wink

see the distinction ?

Some of the older ones may have hardcoded paths; I forgot to think aobut the original ones that i haven't updated since they came out (which most ended up updated in 7.1)

I think after I do my summer renovation of my DVR I'll need to take a look at my older styles and push out a few new ones wink...

Hi there,

Is the style supposed to look like this? I like it but it seems not very lined-up! Is it just me?

http://www.shorthandclasses.com/community/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=58&page=1

Thanks.

No, that looks odd. At the very least you've got somethings centered that's throwing the look off. I'm not at home to check it thoroughly tho.

You can't use the style on a page at http://www.yoursite.com/games/index.php if your forum is at /forums/ and the images are at /forum/styles/images without some sort of hard-coding of /forum/styles/images/image.gif

styles/images/image.gif isn't gonna be the link you are wanting outside of the forum directory wink

Sure you can, insert a basehref into your "external page" header
