  • A FAQ for creating vB templates?

    Heya, I'm trying to customise (yes, I'm british) vBulletin.

    Right now I've no idea where to start - I have a lot of development knowledge, but am honestly finding it difficult as to understanding the workings of the templating system.

    Can anyone direct me to a starters guide of some sort?

    I have actually even purchased and downloaded some styles myself, but I can't even understand how they tie in with vB's look.

    Any help would be much appreciated, even if it is a quick nudge towards somewhere to look at.

    In the admincp you can go to the style manager and add a new template to a new style.

    Then in your custom vb php page you include global.php from vbulletin, and add an eval(); to call the template.

    For details on customizing vBulletin (since we can't give support for it here) I recommend checking out
