I do want to say that i think it is awesome you are extending this theme to other mediums besides vb because every wow lover deserves the right to have access to this theme. Just let me know what i gotta do for the vbulletin side of things and i will do anything i can to help get a working version done. I have the security tokens fixed so the skin is compatable with vbulletin csrf protection but i am still gettin php errors and burning crusade stylesheet seems to break on custom vb pages like vbadvanced and any product pages bringing the footer images and text all the way up to the beginning of the body

Well darthice16, I never developed PBWoW to work with vBAdvanced. That would simply be too complex. The reason that the style breaks (bringing the footer to the top) is because the WoW forums don't have the same distinction between header/navbar/content that vB goes by. This means that header styling will continue into other templates (like navbar) where it is closed. If for example you were to exclude the navbar it results in a header that is not properly closed... which leads to things getting seriously messed up.

It was something I had to do to get it looking just right... but it also meant that just about every template needs to get edited for it to work properly.

phpBB has a somewhat different structure and I decided to take a different approach on opening and closing sections of the code so that it is now much cleaner.


In short: I will not spend more time getting PBWoW to work with vBadvanced, it's simply not worth it. And as for vB in general, phpBB will get priority so don't expect any updates for vB. If you yourself can update it to work with 3.7.1 you are more then welcome and you are free to distribute it as you see fit.
Just leave a little credit for me :D

edit:
If your style gets broken by replacing all \bc\ with \wrath\ directories, try putting these new resources with the old:

(be sure to make backup though)

- Fixed polls
- Fixed "ignoring" ppl
- Implemented a hidden little menu, the same that blizz admins seem to use
- Started making a mod panel that looks like Blizz admin panel (although it's 50% guessing ofc because noone can enter their admin sections).
- Forumview 80% finished
- Topicview 70% finished
- Login screen 90% finished
- Index 80% finished
- Lots of tweaks

Next thing I'll get to the posting sections.

it seems that the wow-base-"forumid".gif images are coded into the templates that go into vbulletin. I tried to change it with an if condition like <if condition="activestylesheet('wrath')"> but vb doesnt allow that in conditionals so i am kinda stuck i also cant get the search results page working right but i will get it

Okay good to hear, I'll have a look, but lets keep the topic on the phpBB version from now.

Update:
Got the WoW styling to work alongside the proSilver styling (more or less) so the UCP etc will work properly now.
