vBulletin utilizes files and templates to render it's pages. As an administrator of your site you have access to the "Style Manager" which allows you to customize nearly every aspect of your style including the templates, css, and stylevars!

*Please keep in mind not everything related to your style in terms of CSS has a stylevar, you could be required to add in custom css if your going beyond the default style and or functionality of vBulletin.

Some useful links:

Now with all great things come some conditions am I right? Basically here's what you need to know in short... vBulletin comes with a default style, it's nice and subtle... why is it not popping or cutting edge? Well that's your perspective, you may think it's not up to par others love it, some want a light style and others a dark style and so forth. The default style can be customized or you can create your own new styles or even import free or paid styles into your site. One thing to bear in mind as with anything you customize sometimes additional maintenance is required, now what does that mean? It means if you heavily customize your sites style there is a chance when you upgrade that templates will not merge correctly... there's is a comparison tool built in but do not, I repeat do not assume things will always go smoothly - on some occasions they do and some they don't for a number of reasons and/or factors etc however the number one reason would be you chose to customize so don't become upset if your required to work on it every now and then ok? Overall what we need to realize is how it works, how we can customize it and then we have control!

Displaying the forum page, the templates are in this order from top to bottom:
  1. Header
  2. Navbar
  3. Forumhome
  4. Footer

Now that's a basic short version, as you can see in the images below there's more but where? Well the black numbered items in the list above are usually the constants meaning they are on all pages, the royal blue colored item is the one that interchanges if you will.

So another way to read it could be:
  1. Header
  2. Navbar
  3. Forumhome OR Forumdisplay OR Showthread etc etc.
  4. Footer

Now for those of you that have already delved into the style manager and the new stylevars system in vbulletin 4 you might be more familiar with this more complex breakdown:
  1. Header
  2. Headinclude
  3. headinclude_bottom
  4. Navbar
  5. Showthread *this wraps the postbit template and houses controls above and below.
  6. postbit
  7. Footer

Now I did say more complex and as you can see I mentioned the showthread template wraps the postbit template right? Well of course but how? vBulletin can call a template via a variable, so in the showthread template it calls the postbit template with one simple snippet of code... you can also call forth variables that display information and additionally you can also utilize template conditionals to show or hide data and present it in various ways within your sites templates i.e. style.

Now let's do a quick run-through of some of the templates we listed above, please see my notes above each image with color coded references.

Header

The header houses your logo, upper (toplinks) links for a member i.e. Notifications, Settings, and more.

To change your logo, you have two options:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

To change the colors and effects of your toplinks:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

To edit your header template:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

To edit most of the CSS and colors related to the header:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

  • Shown in Red(1) is the header area.
  • Shown in Blue(2) is the logo or "title Image".
  • Shown in Orange(3) are the toplinks.




Navbar

The navbar houses your navbar tabs, their sub-links and menus, plus the breadcrumbs i.e. top navigation.

To edit your navbar template:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

To edit most of the CSS and colors related to the header:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

  • Shown in Red(1) is the navbar area.
  • Shown in Green(2) is a standard navtab. Some useful articles (guides) related to the navbar on how to add a new navtab, a drop-down navtab, and how to add in sub-menus etc can be found here.
  • Shown in Yellow(3) is a "selected" navtab or "navtab-selected" as you can see in the image.
  • Shown in Blue(4) is the navtab-selected sub-menu/sub-links and any drop-down menus as well.
  • Shown in Grey(5) is the navbar breadcrumbs or "upper navigation" as some call it. *If you wish to have this navigation duplicated and at the bottom of your site please see here.
  • Shown in Orange(6) is the Global search, you can swap out the vBulletin default search for Sphinx or even replace it with a Google Custom search.




Forum Home (Forumhome)

The forumhome template displays your categories, forums, and sub-forums depending on your preferences chosen in AdminCP > Settings > Options.
  • Shown in Red(1) is the forumhome_forumbit family of templates that make up all you see within the red box, you can customize these via editing templates and through stylevars found in the StyleVars under Forums.
  • Shown in Purple(2) is the forumhome_markread_script, this allows members to easily mark all the forums as read if desired i.e. they don't interact in a certain forum so to mark them all as read in order to view new posts in their desired forum etc etc.
  • Shown in Grey(3) is the Whats Going On? area commonly referred to as wgo, this can be customized via the CSS templates and also by editing the FORUMHOME template directly, some modifications can alter and display information differently, show recent visitors, show search "spiders" browsing and much more!
  • Shown in Yellow(4) is the forum sidebar and each "block" has it's own template that is used to display it within the sidebar area on the forumhome page.



Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.




Threadbit (Showing list of threads etc)

The threadbit template houses the list of all threads within a forum, if there are sub-forums they will be shown in a forumhome "forum" style above the list of threads.
  • Shown in Red(1) is the main part of the threadbit template.
  • Shown in Green(2) is the threadbit_alt_background or "stats".
  • Shown in Orange(3) is the lastpost part of the threadbit template.




Showthread/Postbit (Showing list of posts etc)

The showthread template houses the postbit template so basically the postbit or posbit_legacy templates are called from the middle of the showthread template then a thread is viewed with all posts shown. The showthread has controls above and below the postbit within it's own respective template.

There are two distinctive templates to choose from in regards to how your posts display. To access the setting for this and change go to:

AdminCP > Settings > Options > Style & Language Settings

Now look for: Use Legacy (Vertical) Postbit Template and please note the description;


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.


So using the postbit template your posts will appear as they do on vbulletin.org with the username and info running horizontal along the top of posts where as using the postbit_legacy template will display your posts within a box to the left of each post as you see here currently on vbulletin.com.
  • Shown in Red(1) are the parts of the postbit template.
  • Shown in Blue(2) are the parts of showthread and as you can see it also shows a reference of how it's above and below the postbit template.




Footer

The template template houses your style and language drop-down's or some call them selectors and your footer links. In addition it also houses the code for the scripts related to each of those functions.
  • Shown in Red(1) are the parts of the footer template.
  • Shown in Royal Blue(2) are the footer links or as seen in template and css, footer_links.
  • Shown in Yellow(3) is the style selector, if you have multiple languages available for your vBulletin forum another drop down will also appear for you to choose the correct language, very similar to the style selector.
  • Shown in Green(4) is the footer time.
  • Shown in Purple(5) is the copyright.




Now that you have viewed a few of the templates and corresponding images and labels it should be easier to ask for assistance on the forums. If your ever unsure of the name for something, anything related to the styling of vBulletin refer to this guide and post new questions below, if they are indeed style related and we can offer some tips I'll add them to the guide .

*I do plan on expanding this into specific breakdowns for each forum template and how to customize each however in multiple threads as I feel one long post will become confusing over time.
