Currently the logo is 309x100. I would like it to be the full width of the top of the forum, similar to this very forum.

Just wondering, why would you want a vBulletin looking forum when it is phpBB? Kind of defeats the
object of having a phpBB forum? :lol: :) Well anyway, if someone makes one, then your in luck :)

You could change the width in imageset.cfg to withe you want, or in admin panel ( 1. upload you logo to the style/imageset ) go to styles >> on the left site chose imagestet and on the vphpbb3 chose edit, for the main logo select the logo and disable the Include dimensions. Save and see if it works.

Hmm. How come that no one has made the Vb style for 3.0.7 :?: .
If anybody is interested in it, I'm making it on the base of subsilver2 v3.0.7 .

And can some of the admin ( or anybody that knows ) replay to the question:
Q= Is tat beraking the law if I make that style that looks like the vb...? Or something like that ???

If yes, waht to change that it will be ok...

Yes, cloning another design without their permission is copyright infringement. ;)

You would need to contact vBulletin and ask them for permission before doing anything. Note that we recently closed a vBulletin clone topic as vBulletin confirmed it infringed their copyright.

Yes, contrary to common belief...identical replicas of original (copyrighted) works also infringe copyright.

If the biggest reason for desiring to imitate vBulletin is the general structure, then creating a style inspired by that wouldn't be a problem. You just can't use the same colour scheme and graphics from vB. But if you like the way they organize posts or whatever other pages, then taking inspiration from the design wouldn't lead to copyright infringement. One would still have to be careful in how the design the style though, in any case.

So? I'm talking about creating a general template, and implementing a similar organization - the common denominator among all the vB styles. All the graphics and such are customizable, so you can just make your own. Users across all forum software modify the original style to their wishes, anyhow. It's not like you can just port all the vB styles to phpBB3 without the all the authors' explicit permission.
