  • [vB4] WHY do you HATE US!!

    I apologize in advance, I just need to vent some frustration.

    I would rather customize 4-year-old php store software built in tables than work on a VB4 site.

    You've seriously made it difficult, frustrating and time consuming beyond belief to change up the way sites are styled in VB4.

    PLEASE get some input from people that design websites before you do stuff like this... seriously. The old way wasn't perfect but it was totally acceptable.

    Sorry again

    What good is a rant without a solution? I found it easiest in the end to add styles that are missing in the stylevars, and/or override them from an external CSS file. "!important" makes sure the override does just that. Here is the CSS I used, maybe some of it will help one of you out, or give you a guide on how to get going with further customization of your board. You can find my site in my sig below if you want to see it live.
