  • vBulletin 4 - New theme?

    Just wondering, when vBulletin 4 comes out - do you think there will be a new theme? Also, will this new theme be different then any other customized skin?

    Post your opinions.

    Jelsoft has already confirmed that vBulletin 4 will debut a brand new theme.

      Yes, thats what I heard, but I think.... that they should elt the members make a skin for it. The winning skin would be on Bulletin v4.

        I wonder how it will look different than the current default style. I can't imagine better templates, css... etc

        But who knows, Kier might have some cool inspirations.

          Are you serious, Mazinger?

          On my side, I cannot think of any part of the default skin that doesn't need major change. It's very outdated, and falls through on some basic design principles. I can hardly wait for vBulletin 4 and the new design. If it wasn't for Jelsofts promises, I would have considered phpBB for the future.

            I'm very impressed with phpBB3 new style theme also, and after seeing a quick "preview" the other day of the new IPB3 front-page, along with a few demo screenshots of the forum as well.

            phpBB3 style put's that to shame also.

            vBulletin should take a leaf out of phpBB3 new theme, just as a general direction to head in. Because I'd say, as of right now. phpBB3 have the best web 2 forum board theme going in "ProSilver". Colour wise, does leave a bit to be desired, but design wise - they've done a fantastic job.

            The colours can be changed anyway easily using http://beta.colorizeit.com/index.php...pbb3_prosilver. Without any css editing

                I also have to add, I've seen the IPB3 preview and it is HORRID, Oh my god my eyes D:

                Makes me glad that I chose vBulletin over IPB.

                Please don't make vB4 as crappy as IPB3....I have very high hopes for the new version and hope to see an improvement, not a disgrace.

                  I know they will be using external forces to get this one as good as possible, let us just hope they use competent people - because it will really take something special to beat phpBB's brilliant design.

                    phpBB's "prosilver" is just a brushed up version of their original subSilver design with a different color scheme, postbit reversed and added borderless corners, that's all it is in retrospect.

                    I would post pics of the IPB3 preview but i don't think that would be allowed, however, it is absolutely horrible looking IMO. It looks more like a portal within the forum instead of a forum software itself.

                      I don't think it's horrid at all. It looks similar to phpBB3. What browser did you view it in? As it's an alpha skin (meaning a LOT can and will be changed,) there were still a lot of issues with both IE and Firefox.

                        I browsed with FireFox2

                        I dislike that huge gap from the forums to the statistics, it looks just bad.....

                        I'll have to wait and see how the final product turns out and I do indeed hope they change alot of their stuff cuz as it stands now, it's really bad...

                          That made me laugh.

                          vBulletin's skin is just like IPB but vBulletin has a different color scheme. IPB has their pagination on the left while vBulletin's is on the right...
                          I could go on but it's pointless, you should get the idea.
                          You can't drastically change any forum layout where it looks completely unique.

                            Well I still trust Kier's design skills, he could impress all of us.
