    Thanks, I have never noticed that option! One of the ones that simple got skipped over each time I went into the control panel.

    OK, Side Question... In the OP this was stated: "If you turn on the template markers in the admincp, you will be able to change the template really fast."

    Can anyone guide me to where this option for turning this on/off is? Or, I should ask what is a template marker?

    Thanks,

    I don't understand why you would require someone to register in order to search though.
    That's an easy way to build your user base. If they really want the info and use your resources, make them register. It's free anyway! Almost all sites make you do that now: facebook, Kodak gallery, etc. They want your email address...haha

    Here is the site owner's reply to similar question ( http://www.bfcom.org - german Battlefield Community):

Remove the negative margins and go inside the template system of cms, blog and forum and remove a lot of standard css classes or rewrite them. If you turn on the template markers in the admincp, you will be able to change the template really fast. Use firefox with the extension "firebug" and you can see what's going on before you really change the css or the template file.

    cheers

    I don't know if he posts here. Why not sign up on his site?

    I would love nothing more than to do something similar. Especially that navigation bar that holds the login boxes.

    That is just freakin' cool. I can easily say goodbye to wordpress if this skin gets sold on some website. I don't care how much it costs. Gimmie the skin, nao.

    The search engine is extremely inaccurate compared to the old one. I guess in 4.0 series they "upgraded" to a new architecture for searching and its pretty inferior to the old one in just about every case I've found so far. Logging in, is hit or miss. You can login at the main index page (CMS front page) and then the page refreshes, and still shows you logged out. Until you click on another page, and leave the front page. Then it shows you logged in. Pretty frustrating for anyone that sits at the front page and keeps trying to log in, over and over, and over again. Those are the biggest ones.

    Thanks. Been messing with vB4 since the first public beta. Spent days learning the style var's and making the theme what it looks like now (which isn't really all that different even, haha). My main issues have been with the CMS article editor, and search related on the forum. Most everything else is tolerable. Still have some users very unhappy with it though, but can't please everybody.

    Went live the day after the Gold release. Had some issues and some stuff still isn't operating 100%, but it is a live environment and its *for the most part* running well.
    Job well done I must say! This is what I want my site to look like. Good job with the articles as well.

    Cant say I have applied ANY skinning, and it may be awhile before I do as I am going to wait a couple of months after I experiment in my test forum first ,...

    but I am very pleased with my first attempt at using the CMS on our forum in a live environment using the OEM theme.
    (still tweaking though and have to finish some of the content in progress)
