World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King [3.7.x] Version: 1.01, by Cloudrunner
Original Thread : World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King [3.7.x] - vBulletin.org Forum
WRATH IS COMING!!!
Assistance Requested:It's been a very long time since I have released anything on vB.org and felt I should do something again for the crew here. This time, it's a style that I've recently finished for my World of Warcraft Guild for the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King expansion release.
Unfortunately, I'm not the best on downsizing images so the style is abit big, therefore I cannot simply attach the download to this post. The download link will be at the bottom of the thread here, it is hosted on my own server that I also host my guild's website on, I know that's probably not a huge consolation for those afraid of maliciousness on the web, but it's the best I can do for you guys right now.
What's Provided:Because of my lack of graphics downsizing ability I've provided the buildfiles in PNG format so that someone better than me can make the graphics work better and keep the transparencies looking good can post the fixt files, if you choose to do this I would be greatly appreciative. As it is it's close to 4 megs downloaded when the site is first loaded. If the users are using a cache on their browsers and you have your board set to not force an image reload then the hit won't be too bad, but it's still pretty heavy, so feel free to adjust the images so that the hit won't be as bad. If someone can get the images to be smaller filesize and still keep a good appearance with the style I am willing to negotiate a donation for the use of the fixed images.
Very simple installation:The theme backgrounds and CSS stylings are provided, along with the buildfiles. I have also provided dark matte vb original icons, and modified buttons that fit the theme. All of these are provided in a quick access folder that resides under the images directory so that there is no mixup with your other styles.
- Upload all the folders and their contents within the "Upload" directory to your forums directory keeping the tree intact.
- Login to your AdminCP and upload a new style and import the Wrath-style.xml from the archive.
- Load your forums and change the style to "Wrath".
Download Links:This style is compatible with VbAdvanced CMPS, see attached images.
I would suggest that if you have made any template changes in another style that you want to keep to make this style a child of the style with the template changes.
I have tested this on 3 boards, however you use this style at your own risk. Support is will not be given as I simply do not have the time anymore, I am releasing this to the community at large because I feel there might be a want for it prior to Wrath of the Lich King Releasing.
This style was designed for a screen resolution of 1024x768 or better, and is only compatible with CSS 2.0 compliant browsers such as Firefox 3 or IE 7. I recommend using Firefox personally. This style will not render properly (the two arthas images and the page footer (the ice block) will not show up at all) if using an older browser, but it will not break the forums for those users that are behind the standards in the tests I have done thus far.
If you find a problem with the style where it will not validate, I will do my best to fix and update, but that's as far as my support of this style goes as it validates for XHTML 1.0 Transitional and CSS 2.1 on my boards and again, I simply don't have the time to dedicate to full support of the style for everyone.
As folks requested PSD format for the build files I have included both PNG and PSD format files for those that want them. When exporting to the final format make sure to export as a PNG and keep the same file names. I have split the archives so that you only download what you want.
