    Default G??ks Untie!! Gimmie some skin!

    Okay I'm drawing a blank with Haight's challenge.

    Anyone reading this here thread know how to make skins for vBulletin forums?

    I'm hoping that there's a tool which can reduce the job down to picking options but I'm guessing this may be a style sheet job, which I've only had experience of altering parameters on my Wordpress blog.

    Anyhow, any help would be most appreciated.

    Tanks.

    It is a stylesheet job, alright. I was able to create the kind of effect I'd want in a skin by changing the colors around on a saved forum page by messing with the CSS parameters. But I wouldn't know how to make that into a skin from there. I wonder if anyone knows more about that?

    I guess you have tried Google?
    I couldn't find much for vB 3.7.3, either.
    Seems to be a lot of things available for 3.8, though.
    There's no chance of upgrading from 3.7.3 to 3.8?

    Hmm I wonder if Haight can get me the files for here so I can mod them accordingly? Sort of get this skin and rehash it...

    You found something? I found nothing of use when I looked, just a bunch of forum posts talking jargon... and I HATE jargon...

    You could PM spirilis about that. I'm sure he'd help you out.

    I'll see what I can come up with, some of those guys are obviously suffering from a lack of cones...

    Is HTB still around? He apparently knew how to do it (he created a skin), though I don't know if he just bought one, had a license, or what.

    I actually use HTB's creation.
    I prefer it over the vBulletin default.
    Been using it since I got here.

    I prefer it, too.
    I've been using it ever since he created it.

    Still, I'm curious to see what more people can come up with. I also have an idea for one myself that I'd like to create, if I can figure out how.
