Upgrade Notice - vBulletin 3.7.0 Gold, vBulletin 3.6.10

We have uploaded new versions of our styles for vBulletin 3.7.0 and vBulletin 3.6.10

Customers can find the new files in the customers area. All vBulletin users are encouraged to upgrade as soon as possible.

Upgrade Problems/Out of Date templates

vBulletin merge style feature isn't the best possible way to upgrade templates, thus once you upgrade if you get "out of date template" messsages it is safe revert them. The best possible way to make sure you have the latest templates is to upload the style as a new style (as if you were installing for the first time).

Bugs/Issues

We encourage all our skin users to submit bug reports via our bug tracker. If you have further problems, not relating to bugs etc you can open a support thread for assistance.

3.6 End-of-Life

With vBulletin announcing version 3.6 of vBulletin to be discontinued at the end of october, we would like to inform customers that we intend to support 3.6 till this time aswell. Its in customers best interest to be running the latest version for security reasons.

Introducing Colour Packs!

We've just released the first set of our colour packs. These packs are designed so users can enjoy different colour varieties of our skins with ease. These colour packs are entirely free and are available to customers with an active license. Install instructions can be found in our documentation. If you have a colour request, please don't hesitate to suggest it

Our first release is Green and Red colour packs for Seasons:

Re: Upgrade Notice - vBulletin 3.7.0 Gold, vBulletin 3.6.10

Thats awesome.
So how does this work?
I upload all the new files etc - is there a XML file for each that I need to upload? I mean, are they like seperate skins etc??
Will I be able to use these so that the user can choose which colour they would like from the drop down skin chooser at the bottom of the page?

Also, wll there be colour packs for vBadvanced as well - or just the actual forum?

Re: Upgrade Notice - vBulletin 3.7.0 Gold, vBulletin 3.6.10

Hello,

These packs are made in a way so that only the images are supplied. Having mutiple xmls for the same skin leads to problems especially with bug fixing. So using the standard seasons xml you bassically change it to a different colour using the instructions, which in my opinion are very simple

To answer your question, yes you can have Seasons in multiple colours on your forum and your users can decided which one they want to use.

These packs are still a work in progress so any feedback you can give will help make them better

The packs work for the forum and all its add-ons (vBadvaced, vB Blog, Project Tools etc)
