    Here is my latest creation Bingo -the new professional vB style comes in 9 colors! Yes in 9 color variations...

    For vb 3.8.3

    The highlight of this skin is it uses only one vB templates and 9 Cascading style sheet, it means you have to customise or update only one template each time not 9 and the colors changes without the page reload - this is done using Js...

    There are 2 xml file, the only difference is the design on forum home page :

    1) bingo - default forum home in vB3x.
    2) bingo_forumhome_vb4 - the forum home looks similar to vb4x

    Use the one you like...

    Few instructions to follow:

    To enable the latest Threads to display on the footer:

    1. Go to 'vBulletin Options>vBulletin Options>External Data Provider'
    2. Set 'Enable External Javascript' to 'Yes'
    3. Set 'Cache Lifespan' to any given value between 1 to 1140 Rread the description for further information. For the quickest turnaround time on new threads, set to 1. Note: This causes the data provider to use maximum resources)
    4. Set 'Maximum External Records' to 5 (recomended or the footer will look crap).

    To add your blog link:

    1. Go to 'Styles & Templates> header
    2. Find > <a href="faq.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[faq]</a>
    3. next/below to that, insert the following code:

    <a id="blog_menu" href="$show[nojs_link]#blog_menu">$vbphrase[blogs]</a><script type="text/javascript"> vbmenu_register("blog_menu", 1); </script>

    Then Goto> Navbar > find <!-- / user cp tools menu --> after that add the code below:
    <!-- blog_menu -->
    <div class="vbmenu_popup" id="blog_menu_menu" style="display:none">
    <table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="1" border="0">
    <tr><td class="thead"><a href="blog.php">$vbphrase[blogs]</a></td></tr>
    <tr><td class="vbmenu_option"><a href="blog.php?do=bloglist">Blog Directory</a></td></tr>
    <tr><td class="vbmenu_option"><a href="blog.php?do=bloglist&blogtype=best">Best Blogs</a></td></tr>
    <tr><td class="vbmenu_option"><a href="blog.php?do=list&blogtype=best">Best Entries</a></td></tr>
    <tr><td class="vbmenu_option"><a href="blog_search.php?do=search">Find Blogs</a></td></tr>
    <!-- / blog_menu -->

    If using vBa:

    1. Go to 'Styles & Templates> edit templates > headinclude > scroll down > find:

    before the images/ (in all 10 lines)

    Changing the logo to yours:

    Psd files for the header logo and the footer logo are zipped for your convenience and you need to insert your logo or text and save in all 9 colors bg - which you will find in both psd...

    Keep the same size for the logo as in psd, the same width and height or it may break the design...

    Addtional info:

    Button psd are provided in the zip for translation purpose and i have already created the "Thanks" and "Groan" buttons which are inside the button folder...

    The skin passed the validation, 100% HTML 1.0 and CSS level 2.1

    Do not remove my copyright text at the footer 'Design by' if you want to remove the copyright make a donation and PM me with your forum URL...
