    Mooff, that's an outstanding job!!!

    How did you create the image captions?
    How did you do this: http://awesomescreenshot.com/0c9m161c7

    There is a text overlap on http://www.united-forum.de/news/comm...l#!prettyPhoto
    See: http://awesomescreenshot.com/0d8m1420d

    - plugin to remove tags and bbcode from the preview
    What do you mean with 'remove tags from the preview'? I do not have tags on the preview.

    The link 'Zum Forum' on the preview missed the threadid. http://www.united-forum.de/showthread.php?t=

    I assume that you mean this: http://awesomescreenshot.com/0d7m15x2e
    Thats very nice. What exactly are you showing? A gallery from a certain user or from a certain category?

    - custom grids as base - @everyone who is trying to mod their cms, get rid of that yui-(insert flame) as fast as you can
    Please expand on this.

    - more heavy css coding to make everything stylevar based, needed for our ~9 styles
    Your source code looks much cleaner than default vbCMS pages. More content, less crap. Good for SEO as well.

    Is it successfull? Well i don't exactly know, we released the update this week.
    Is is customized? Heavily.
    Can i give you a how to? No. It's hardcoded for our board, the adminside is very basic and it needs heavy modifications everywhere.

    A list what we have done:
    - plugin for subheadline/headline
    - plugin to remove tags and bbcode from the preview
    - bb-code plugin for galleries (see here f.e.: http://www.united-forum.de/news/command-amp-conquer-s5/uebersicht-command-conquer-tiberium-wars-283.html#!prettyPhoto[gallery]/0/ )
    - bb-code plugin for gallery as content (bottom of this news f.e. http://www.united-forum.de/news/comm...hoben-299.html )
    - bb-code in order to float pictures and quotes in the articles (we are going for a magazin type style)
    - widget for the featured articles including a basic admin frontend in order to change things in a minute
    - nivo slider widget including customization in the slider engine for the background fadeing and a basic admin frontend to change things in a minute (widget is released for free on vb.org, not with our custom look though which won't work on a default vb4)
    - navbar, header and above body modifications in order to have the navbar above the slider and the slider fullwidth and board fullwidth while the newspage is fixed to 1000px
    - custom grids as base - @everyone who is trying to mod their cms, get rid of that yui-(insert flame) as fast as you can
    - plugins for the navtabs, so the 'BattleZone' has it's own navtab (we used a how to on vb.org for this one)
    - plugin for the dp sphinx search (the sphinx search is amazing btw) so we can grab similar articles and show them in the preview and article pages
    - some heavy weightlifting on css and templates to a) make it possible to have a white cms while having a dark board b) get that magazin look we want
    - more heavy css coding to make everything stylevar based, needed for our ~9 styles
    - some custom widgets for navigation, youtube, social network, battlezone main tournament widget, battlezone recent tournaments, upcoming tournaments
    - template modifcation on the recent threads widgets to make it look cleaner
    - template and php-code modifications in the recent articles widget used on the battlezone
    - plugins for the rss part in order to not show rss-icons on the board, but on the cms. Another plugin to stop the board-rss (given someone manages to find the link somehow) from sharing our threads, we kinda like our content to stay on our board. :P
    - php code modifications in the vbcms rss to a) set the feed language in the header to german (yeah it's hardcoded to be us-en) b) limit the amount of previewtext included into the feed.

    I think thats everything.

    Hope you guys like it and i hope our users like it. Cheers =)

    Doesnt load at all.

    It maybe me, but I am amazed at all the people posting default CMS installations. I do not see whats special or successful about a non-modified CMS. Or am I missing something here?

    Well unfortunately I cannot say much about it since I didn't develop it myself, I paid for it to one of local freelancers. The application includes online catalog of new and used watches with advanced search and a directory of local distributors/retailers and service centres. Application includes all pages except FORUM and VESTI which are part of VB4.

    No, it's not. vbcms in under the link VESTI.

    It's a combination of custom made Java web application and VB4.

    The cms's posted in this thread are hand make by the guys and gals that own the forums. If there were custom styles like those posted here I'd be all over it.
    My customizing has been a lot of fun but it really doesn't compare to those.

    How about mine : http://whatafy.com/

    I think i will change the CMS on something custom, because is missing a great style and some other modules that i need. It's to hard to customize.
