Since I have been transferred ownership of this style, I figured a new topic with current information would be beneficial to users.

More info on the transfer here: http://www.startrekguide.com/community/ ... =17&t=5696

This is an awesome style, i plan on using it for a new forum im putting together. I do have one question though.

I would like to have both the rotating background and the black menu bars, what is the best approach to doing this?

I tried installing the Lite version and then just adding the bg folder from the full version, but this did nothing. So am i better off trying to add rotating bg's to the lite version or adding the menu bar to the full version?

Thanks a ton

Download the rotating version... and the static edition...

replace the theme/images/bg folder in the static edition with the same folder in the rotating version. then open stylesheet.css and near the top of the CSS find:

Code: Select all

	background-image: url("./images/bg/vista_2.jpg"); /* url('./images/bg/bg.php'); */
Change this to:

Code: Select all

	background-image: url('./images/bg/bg.php'); 
Upload files and refresh your theme and template.

Thank you so much, worked and was easy.

Would it be possible for you to tell me how to add the menu bar to the full style? I had been working with that prior and would like to avoid reinstalling mods if possible.

I noticed that when i click on a forum, a topic or a category that in the title of the browser the title gets prefaced with either "View Forum" or "View Topic" and its placed before the rest of the title. Is there anyway i can remove this?

I poked around and cannot figure out where it being generated from. Glacier did not do this im using Vista Full now.

I don't know if you missed it but I just checked that on my site and STG and the title appears in both. STG is slightly modified so it appears later in the title. Both Glacier... it is part of the code in phpBB. It is not style related.

Hey, like the style! I knew that opacity would somehow come into play. :)

Hello!

Is there a place I can get the site_logo.png with just the tent thing and no wording.

Thanks!
Dave

Having just recently installed the BF_Vista_Static style, I have come across a problem in IE6.

This is a screenshot in FF and as you can see it looks fine. It is also ok in IE7

However, in IE6, this is what it looks like. Any ideas on how to fix this?
