@  doctorsexy : (29 June 2015 - 01:40 PM) ive joined the club....im having fun and games with it now
@  Wotsit : (29 June 2015 - 09:27 AM) Our ticket has been referred to Tier II so am only going to do the test site
@  doctorsexy : (29 June 2015 - 06:26 AM) 409 is out
@  doctorsexy : (29 June 2015 - 02:51 AM) Sounds good
@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 04:04 PM) No, nor did I with starting from scratch - just updating I have problems with. Trouble is it's a different problem each time.
@  doctorsexy : (28 June 2015 - 01:51 PM) funny i havent had a problem with it , but i started from scratch
@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 11:28 AM) Every upgrade I've done so far results in different things. Only one was partially my fault for not noticing that their .htaccess didn't have a preceding dot
@  legion : (28 June 2015 - 07:39 AM) Wotsit and Sherri if you need a hand with anything let me know
@  legion : (28 June 2015 - 07:38 AM) WOW glad I have not made that switch to 4.0 yet :(
@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 02:15 AM) Here we go again - ticket submitted. It's telling me I'm using a 3rd party theme when it's theirs :(
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 05:44 AM) Database exported - anything from here on in won't appear on IBTheme
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 03:32 AM) Well the nav bar was caused by me missing a dot off of htaccess :( - OK off to try again though none of this recent stuff may come out
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 03:21 AM) @pete I feel your pain - the last week has been spent uploading the files/database - didn't work / delete start again etc until we finally admitted defeat.
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 03:19 AM) I could understand it if on the precheck something indicated there wasn't enough memory or something but it all comes up green then doesn't work = so frustrating
@   The Old Man : (27 June 2015 - 01:26 AM) It's kind of funny seeing IBSkin on default mode! Weirds me out, on so many levels!
@  pete : (26 June 2015 - 02:57 PM) Sherri and Wotsit the last few days i been doing lots upgrades from 3.4.x to 4.0.x because IPS staff can't find time i been so busy it killing my time on updating apps/hook etc
@   The Old Man : (26 June 2015 - 01:53 PM) Sorry to hear of your frustration, have to admit it's been a nightmare experience for me too. IPS4 has become the Windows Vista of IPS products.
@  Sherri : (25 June 2015 - 04:54 PM) I'm right there hating it with you. I'm excited about what it CAN be, but it's not there yet. This is a total disaster, and IPS is evidently far too understaffed to handle the stressful workload that comes with all these issues. It wasn't ready for release yet, that's for sure. :(
@  Wotsit : (25 June 2015 - 02:38 PM) I'm beginning to hate 4.0 :(
@  Wotsit : (25 June 2015 - 02:32 PM) As you all know, we've been shut down for several days now trying to move IBSkin.com over to IBTheme.com and upgrade to IPB 4.0. After several attempts to get this accomplished, we have failed on each account and run into some pretty bad technical difficulties. For this reason, we have re-opened IBSkin.com and we have asked IPS to see if they can get us moved successfully. We'll keep everyone posted on the updates as we receive them, but for now, we will conduct business here on IBSkin as usual. IPS is really backed up right now and they are super busy so I don't expect them to be able to help us out as quickly as we would like, so we'll be patient and hope for the best. Meanwhile, I'm going to be working to get the new Red Pro 4.0 updated and then start pushing out new themes for IPB 4.0 Thank you all for your patience and understanding while we get this all sorted, and we are truly sorry for those that were inconvenienced by our closing this past week. Kindest Regards, Sherri & Wotsit IBSkin / IBTheme Management

Hello,

I'm planning on purchasing Happy Halloween, Easter, and a summer skin soon. However, all of them have category headers where certain images and vectors are on the category header. I'd like to do that with my default skin so that it matches with the other three skins I want to buy. How was this achieved? Is it just an image using this type of CSS that allows three images, or is there extra code?


Thanks! :D

-Dylan

3 images:

<div class='catheadmid'><div class='catheadleft'><div class='catheadright'>

in the boardIndexTemplate

and defined in the ipb_styles.css:

.catheadmid {
background: url({style_images_url}/cathead_mid.png) repeat-x bottom left;
display: inline;
float:left;
width:100%;
height: 102px;
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
text-align: left;
border-bottom: 0px;
margin-bottom: 0px !important;
}

etc :)

They are when you buy a skin from here but not in the IP.Board skin :)

Oh. How would you accomplish this without that?

Hire a skinner LOL

or

buy a skin and study the code and think "oh, that's how they did that" and then try yourself. It's what I do :) I do have a test board installed though so I can break it as many times as I like before putting something on my live forum.

Your Invision license allows you to have a test board so long as it's offline and registrations are closed.

I'm only the local amateur LOL with a brain that don't work right half the time. I use WinMerge and can sometimes see what needs doing so If you have all your brain then you're in front of me LOL
